Harry Allen with JoyceSomething About Jobim ... CD
Stunt (Denmark), 2015. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
A lovely little Brazilian-styled set from tenorist Harry Allen – and one that features vocals and guitar from the wonderful Joyce! Almost all titles are originals by Antonio Carlos Jobim – as you'd guess from the title – but Allen's deep-voiced approach moves them into very ... (Jazz, Brazil) read more CD

RCA/Mr Bongo (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
An amazing bit of Brazilian funk – and the best album ever by this exciting soulful duo! The record's their first, and it's got a crackling intensity that you don't always find on their other albums – a groove that mixes hard samba with bass-heavy funk, with a sound that makes them one ... read more CD

Atlantic/Mr Bongo (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
An excellent album by one of the greatest Brazilian funk bands ever – a wonderful blend of funk, jazz, and soul – and a set that rivals any of the best work coming from the US at the time! These guys are right on the money right from the start – moving through sharp changes with ... read more CD

Banda MantiqueiraCon Alma ... CD
SESCSP (Brazil), 2017. New Copy ... $11.99
Jazzy work from this Brazilian ensemble – a group who seek to bring older choro, samba, and bossa forms forward – while also mixing them with a bit of jazz from the American scene too! The group's especially strong on reedwork – both from leader Nailor Proventa, who plays alto ... read more CD

BarbatuquesAyu ... CD
Mr Bongo (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $6.99 11.98
Very cool sounds from this unique Brazilian group – an ensemble whose music mostly comes from their voices and percussive sounds made on their bodies! The approach is surprisingly great – and maybe not nearly as squishy as you'd expect – as there's a clean, clear sound to the ... read more CD

Jorge BenBig Ben ... CD
Philips/Universal (Brazil), 1963. New Copy ... $11.99
Brilliant early work from Jorge Ben – a set that shouldn't be confused with the US album of the same name, and which is one of Jorge's first few gems of the 60s! The album's got Ben stepping out with a slightly jazzier feel than on his debut – a style that's still heavily steeped in ... read more CD

Maria BethaniaAbracar E Agradecer ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2016. New Copy 2 CDs ... $32.99
The beautiful image on the cover is a great summation of the sound of this set – as the live performance has all the power and majesty that Maria Bethania brought to her work, right from the start – but also maybe a bit more warmth than we'd normally expect! That spontaneous smile that ... read more CD

Chico BuarqueAlmanaque (CD & book) ... CD
Philips/Abril Cultural (Brazil), 1982. New Copy ... $13.99
The kind of record that kept Chico Buarque going strong well into his later years – a beautifully-penned, beautifully-sung album filled with subtle graces and charms! The style here is vaguely samba-oriented, but as with most of Chico's other work, it's delivered in a mode that defies simple ... read more CD

Chico BuarqueChico Buarque (1978) (CD & book) ... CD
Philips/Abril Cultural (Brazil), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
One of Chico's strongest albums of the late 70s – a masterful set of sophisticated tunes, recorded with some great guest help from Milton Nascimento, Zizi Possi, and Elba Ramalho! The album's got a slightly melancholy feel overall – not completely somber, but a slightly world-weary ... read more CD

Chico BuarqueChico Buarque (1984) (CD & book) ... CD
Philips/Abril Cultural (Brazil), 1984. New Copy ... $13.99
An overlooked gem from Chico's mid 80s period – a record filled with strong and subtle songs, often backed by some nicely jazz-tinged arrangements from Cristovao Bastos! The album's not as revolutionary as some of Chico's earlier records, but it more than makes up for that with an incredibly ... read more CD

Chico BuarqueChico Buarque De Hollanda Vol 3 (CD & book) ... CD
RGE/Abril Cultural (Brazil), 1967. New Copy ... $13.99
Amazing work from a young Chico Buarque – a record that seems to draw on all the best elements of 60s Brazilian pop, and forge them into a sound that's all its own! At one level, there's a post-bossa style of larger arrangements here that recalls the work of Edu Lobo – handled by ... read more CD

Chico BuarquePara Todos (CD & book) ... CD
RGE/Abril Cultural (Brazil), 1993. New Copy ... $13.99
That's a young mug shot of Chico Buarque on the cover, but the album's a later effort from the 90s – and one that really holds us rapt with the brilliance of Chico's mature songwriting and performance! The record's part of that ever-growing legacy that may well make Buarque one of the ... read more CD

Chico BuarqueSinal Fechado (CD & book) ... CD
Philips/Abril Cultural (Brazil), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99
Chico pays tribute to a host of other Brazilian composers – but he manages to make the work entirely his own, thanks to a deeply personal approach! Styles here run the gamut from samba to sophisticated, often handled with slightly jazzy undercurrent – and backings are by Perinho ... read more CD

Erasmo CarlosCarlos, Erasmo – Erasmo Carlos (1971) ... CD
Philips/Light In The Attic, 1971. New Copy ... $13.99 15.98
Erasmo Carlos sounds even cooler here than usual – still working with tunes penned with his brother Roberto – but also taking on music by Caetano Veloso, Jorge Ben, and Marcos Valle too! There's a heady undercurrent to the record that's maybe a filtering-through of an earlier ... read more CD

Polydor/Light In The Attic, 1972. New Copy ... $13.99 15.98
A record filled with cover images that run from Richard Nixon to Elvis Presley, to Mick Jagger, Caetano Veloso, Chairman Mao, Jorge Ben, Jimi Hendrix, and Andy Warhol – and a set whose sound definitely seems to live up to such heady company from the 20th century! Erasmo Carlos is at his ... read more CD

CarminhoCarminho Canta Tom Jobim ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... $16.99
The cover image makes it look like Carminho's a contemporary of Antonio Carlos Jobim – but she's actually a much younger artist – a great contemporary fado vocalist, who serves up some very unusual readings of classic songs by the bossa legend! Carminho's way of phrasing is very ... read more CD
