Celso Fonseca & Ronaldo BastosJuventude – Slow Motion Bossa Nova ... CD
Universal, 2001. Used ... $9.99
Slow Motion Bossa Nova certainly fits this one – a beautiful album of lush jazzy arrangements, done in the 60s style of artists like Roberto Menescal or Lalo Schifrin, but with added touches of soulful vocals by Celso Fonseca. The assemblage of musicians on the record is great – and ... read more CD

Funk Como Le GustaA Nave-Mae Segue Viagem ... CD
Tratore (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... $18.99
Funk Como Le Gusta were one of the first contemporary funk groups we ever heard from Brazil – a combo who initially blew our minds over a dozen years, and who return here with a record that's maybe even tighter than before! There's a brilliant mix of funk elements going on here – not ... read more CD

Resonance, 1976. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
Genius material from the team of tenorist Stan Getz and Brazilian bossa legend Joao Gilberto – reunited here in a brief mid 70s period, after their famous Verve recordings of the early 60s – and in a way that shows all the changes both artists had gone through over the years! Stan and ... (Jazz, Brazil) read more CD

Stan Getz with Joao GilbertoBest Of Two Worlds (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Sony (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $14.99
A wonderful return to the sounds of Brazil for Stan Getz – a 70s album that reunites him with Joao Gilberto, but in a style that's somewhat different than the pair's older Verve recordings! The sound here is looser, freer – more in that breezy Brazilian mode that evolved out of the ... (Jazz, Brazil) read more CD

Gilberto GilAo Vivo Em Toquio ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1987. New Copy ... $14.99
A real standout from Gilberto Gil in the 80s – a live record from Tokyo, and one that's recorded with a spontaneous sound that's a nice change from some of his studio work! The group's got a nice horn section, who underscore things in a way that makes the whole thing feel a bit more soulful ... read more CD

Gilberto GilBanda Larga Cordel ... CD
Warner, 2008. Used ... $2.99
Gilberto Gil continues his exploration of Caribbean-styled rhythms here – working in a sunny space that's a bit different from his earlier work, especially some of his more electric or intimate sets of a decade ago. The style here is one that suits Gil's aging vocals well – as his ... read more CD

Gilberto GilGilberto Gil (1969) (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1969. Used ... $18.99
The rare 3rd album by Gilberto Gil, and a key piece of the Tropicalia puzzle – one of the most wildly experimental albums from those years, and Gil's last before going into exile! The sound is much more electric than his other albums from the late 60's – and the production, songwriting ... read more CD

Gilberto GilO Eterno Deus Mu Danca ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1989. New Copy ... $14.99
Gilberto Gil gets off to a nicely soulful start here – by bringing in a guest appearance from Ed Motta on the album's title track – then keeping things in a nice mix of samba and soul throughout the entire album! There's a few slight touches of 80s production, but overall there's a lot ... read more CD

An ambitious double-length set from Gilberto Gil – and a record that's almost a return to some of the sounds of his roots!

Gilberto GilRaca Humana ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1984. New Copy ... $14.99
Gilberto Gil gets a nice lean groove for the 80s – a mode that's a bit like the style Caetano Veloso was taking at the time – with maybe more of a unified band feel behind the singer, instead of a more ambitious set of charts! The approach really brings a focus on Gilberto's vocals, ... read more CD

Verve/Jazzclub (Germany), 1986. New Copy ... $8.99
A rare 80s set from Astrud Gilberto – cut at a time when she was hardly doing any new recording at all! As you'll guess from the title, the album has Gilberto teaming up with German groovemaker James Last – who handles all the orchestrations for the record, and shows a surprising ... read more CD

A warmly intimate album from Joao Gilberto – one that has the singer and guitarist in the same special space as his wonderful albums from the early 70s - a bit more sophisticated than the bossa years, but equally personal throughout! The set was co-produced by Helen Keane – who was ... read more CD
