Antonio Carlos JobimAntonio Carlos Jobim (aka Composer Of Desafinado Plays) ... CD CD format
Verve, 1963. Used ... $5.99
Antonio Carlos Jobim's classic Verve session from 1963 – a tremendous record, done with a wonderful airy sound that became the trademark for bossa production in America – and which also had a great inspiration on the sound of mid 60s bossa in Brazil! Claus Ogerman arranged and conducts the orchestra, and Jobim plays guitar and piano – with a core group that also features Jimmy Cleveland on trombone and Leo Wright on flute, both American jazz players who help add some further complexities to the sound. Tracks include "Jazz Samba", "Favela", "O Morro", "Aqua De Beber", "Girl From Ipanema", and "Chega De Saudade". Packaged here in a beautiful two-tone Elenco cover – with a really classic look, and a different appearance than the Verve cover! CD
(Verve Master edition in a tri-fold digipack.)

New Antonio Carlos Jobim & Luiz BonfaBlack Orpheus – Original Soundtrack (Epic) ... LP LP format
Epic, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $11.99
One of the greatest soundtracks ever – a record that set a whole new standard for audio representation of a film! The mad music for the set was composed by Antonio Carlos Jobim, with lyrics by Vincius De Moraes – and performed by Luiz Bonfa on guitar – but despite such prime bossa pedigree, the whole thing's got a sound that goes way beyond the familiar – a crazy mix of batucada percussion, samba rhythms, bossa guitar, and loads of sound effects from the film – so much so that the first half of the record is almost a sound-for-sound replication of the first 20 minutes of the movie! The sound collage is amazing – an extremely unique approach to soundtrack representation, and one that's never been done so beautifully since. A truly breathtaking record, filled with mindblowing sounds – and an early example of the genius that would explode in 60s music in Brazil. Some key bossa classics are represented here in early versions – including "Felicidade", "O Nosso Amor", and "Manha De Carnaval" – but they're wrapped up in odd sounds and rhythms that really make them sound different! LP, Vinyl record album

Miucha & Antonio Carlos JobimMiucha & Tom Jobim (1979) ... CD CD format
RCA/Sony (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $8.99
This second collaboration between these two great talents is every bit as wonderful as the first – a great later set of bossa-revival work, done by Tom Jobim and Miucha in a similar mode to his earlier work with Elis Regina! The set was recorded in New York, with spacious production from the legendary Aloysio De Oliveira – and the result's a beautiful combination of lilting melody and warm vocals that shows that Jobim could still sound wonderful, even after his initial 60s classics. Chico Buarque and Joao Donato contribute to the magic, and titles include "Turma Do Funil (No Baixo Leblon)", "Triste Alegria", "Sublime Tortura", "Samba Do Carioca", "Falando De Amor", "No Cego", and "Dinheiro Em Penca".

Elis Regina & Antonio Carlos JobimElis & Tom (CD & DVD audio) ... CD CD format
Philips/Studio Canal (Brazil), 1974. New Copy ... $16.99
An incredible album – and a landmark session that showed that the bossa nova was still alive and well in the 1970s! The album pairs the breathy jazz vocals of Elis Regina with the booze-soaked warmth of Antonio Carlos Jobim – in a set of spare arrangements that feature a lot of touches from Cesar Carmargo Mariano, whose work on Elis Regina's 70s sessions is still the stuff of legend! Elis' vocals dominate, but when Tom comes in, the result is even more spectacular – especially given the generally light instrumentation used on most tracks – which means that the vocals carry the bulk of the sound on the set! Includes the pair's sublime duet on "Aguas de Marco", plus the tracks "Fotografia", "Brigas, Nunca Mais", "Retrato Em Branco E Preto", "Chovendo No Roseira", "Modinha", and "Triste". This special package features both a CD and DVD – with DVD audio on the DVD, playing in the background of menu sections for the album. DVD audio also features the bonus tracks "Bonita" and an alternate version of "Fotografia". CD

New Antonio Carlos JobimStone Flower ... LP LP format
CTI, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Antonio Carlos Jobim's greatest records – and a perfect blend of his subtle bossa genius with the moody electric sound of CTI! Jobim plays electric and acoustic piano, guitar, and sings a bit – and Deodato handled the arrangements with a breezy brilliance that matches all the magic of Jobim's wonderful compositions, but gives them a slightly more fluid feel too – in a way that's somewhat more sophisticated than the sound of Jobim's previous CTI outings – Tide and Wave. Other players on the album include Joe Farrell on soprano sax, Hubert Laws on flute, and Airto on percussion – and there's a great mix of Brazilian and American styles on the set – electric, sinister, breezy, and always wonderful! Includes the titles "Sabia", "God & The Devil In The Land Of The Sun", "Children's Games", "Stone Flower", "Brazil", "Tereza My Love", and "Choro". LP, Vinyl record album

New Antonio Carlos JobimWave ... CD CD format
CTI/A&M, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stunning mix of talents that brings the heavenly piano and guitar of Antonio Carlos Jobim into play with the lush, but light arrangements of Claus Ogerman – a swirling mix of post-bossa loveliness that redefines Jobim's sound, and opens up new avenues for exploration in sound! The production is amazing – pillowy-soft, but with a complex depth that's hardly been matched again – and although Jobim's the main player, other great musicians include Dom Um Romao, Claudio Slon, Jerome Richardson, Ron Carter, and others. Tracks include "Wave", "Mojave", "Lamento", "Batidinha", "The Red Blouse", "Antiguq", and the groovy "Captain Bacardi". Beautiful all the way through! CD

New Miucha & Antonio Carlos JobimMiucha & Antonio Carlos Jobim ... CD CD format
RCA/Sony (UK), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pretty darn sweet vocal session from the duo of Miucha and Antonio Carlos Jobim – recorded with lots of bossa overtones, very much the same spirit as the legendary Elis & Tom album of the mid 70s! Chico Buarque participates in the session, and Jobim even lends his vocal talents to a track or two – but his real talent, though, is his work on the arrangements – as he gives the whole thing a beautifully dreamy quality, in the manner of his best 70s work, with lots of strange off-kilter melodies floating around the mix of strings, piano, and flute! Miucha's vocals are lovely, and titles include "Sei La A Vida Tem Sempre Razao", "Vai Levando", "Comigo E Assim", "Samba Do Aviao", and "Saia Do Caminho". CD

New Sylvia TellesSylvia Telles Sings The Wonderful Songs Of Antonio Carlos Jobim (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD CD format
Kapp/Victor (Japan), 1965. Used ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful album of mellow bossa tracks sung by Sylvia Telles – recorded in Rio, but issued (and reissued) here in a US version on Kapp records. The album was one of the few that Sylvia ever issued in the US, and it features a beautiful batch of Jobim tracks, done in a shimmering style that works perfectly with Sylvia's emotional voice. She'd cut earlier albums of Jobim's work (this is her 7th overall LP), so she's well accquainted with the material – as you'll hear on tracks like "Bonita", "One Note Samba", "Roses & Roses", "Quiet Nights", "Dindi", and "Dreamer". CD
(Out of print. Comes in a limited edition 5" cardboard sleeve, which has some edge wear.)

Vanessa Da MataVanessa Da Mata Canta Tom Jobim ... CD CD format
Sony (Brazil), 2013. New Copy ... $16.99
Wonderful stuff – a set that represents a real maturation for Vanessa Da Mata – a stronger link to Brazilian tradition than before, yet still with a vibe that hanks onto the contemporary energy that's always made us love her records! As the title indicates, the set's a batch of classic compositions by Antonio Carlos Jobim – sung by Da Mata in this gently flowing style that's mighty nice – and set to arrangements by Deodato that really have an old-school mode – but not some sort of sleepy retro-bossa, or bossa-remix – instead that kind of airy space that Deodato first helped pioneer back in the 60s, and which sparkles even more here from his own lead work on acoustic piano! The balance is great, and Vanessa really rises to the top in the setting – on titles that include "Fotografia", "Wave", "Correnteza", "Estrada Do Sol", "Sabia", "So Tinha De Ser Com Voce", "Chovendo Na Roseira", "Por Causa De Voce", and "So Danco Samba".

Astrud GilbertoAstrud Gilberto Album ... LP LP format
Verve (Germany), 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
One of Astrud Gilberto's greatest albums of the 60s – a classic session produced for Verve by Creed Taylor, and featuring sweet gentle arrangements from Marty Paich, co-arranged with Antonio Carlos Jobim, who also plays guitar on the session next to the piano of Joao Donato! That's a mouthful of heavy-hitters, we know – but the result is a totally great session that has Astrud's light and gentle vocals drifting over some of the most magical bossa backings you'll ever hear. The whole thing's great, stuffed with bossa classics done in English – and titles include "Once I Loved", "Aqua De Beber", "O Morro", "Dindi", "Dreamer", and "Photograph". LP, Vinyl record album

Sylvia TellesVoce E Eu ... CD CD format
Universal (Brazil), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
Beautiful bossa by one of the first singers to really embrace the genre – the lovely Sylvia Telles, represented here by some of her best tracks from the late 50s and early 60s! Sylvia initially started as a singer with a bit more of the romantic flourishes of the postwar generation in Brazil, but soon became greatly enamored of the new bossa sound at the end of the 50s – and used her wonderfully clean, fluid style to really work magic with the music of Antonio Carlos Jobim and others! This set combines tracks from Telles' years at Odeon and Philips – and features titles that include "Dindi", "Lobo Bobo", "Perdido De Amor", "Estrada Do Sol", "Eu Sei Que Vou Te Amar", "Caminhos Cruzados", "Tu E Eu", "Se Todos Fossem Iguais A Voce", "Por Causa De Voce", and "Voce E Eu".

New Luiz EcaPiano E Cordas Vol 2 ... LP LP format
Elenco (Brazil), 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A magnificent demonstration of the deep talents of Brazilian pianist/arranger Luiz Eca – and one of his greatest albums away from the Tamba Trio! The style here is much more lush than the work by his earlier trio – a blend of tinkling piano and soaring strings that reminds us a fair bit of Lalo Schifrin's mid 60s work in the US – but which also shows some of those incredibly sophisticated changes going on in other Brazilian music, all recorded with a sound that's a bit like the landmark Antonio Carlos Jobim albums on CTI! Roberto Menescal produced, and Eca's piano floats magically over cascading banks of strings and waves of sound – sometimes spare and moody, sometimes filled with a soaring sense of life. Titles include "Daulphine", "Travessia", "Pra Dizer Adeus", "Minha", "Preciso Aprender A Ser So", "Oferenda", and "Duas Contas". LP, Vinyl record album

Odeon/Doxy, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Joao Gilberto's first-ever albums – filled with incredibly beautiful bossa material that captures the vocals and guitar of Gilberto at their fragile early best – backed by sublime arrangements from Antonio Carlos Jobim and Walter Wanderley! The setting is perfect, and the sound is amazing – that incredible stripped-down breathy quality that made Joao a legend right out of the box – which so many others tried to copy over the years, but never got this right. A beautiful relic from the past – with a lovely image of Joao's young face on the cover – and titles that include "O Barquinho", "O Amor Em Paz", "Voce e Eu", "Coisa Mas Linda", and "Presente De Natal".

Elenco/Polysom (Brazil), Mid 60s. New Copy 5LPs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing bossa nova from 60s Brazil – a limited box set that features five classic albums from the Elenco Records label, pressed up on very high quality vinyl! Album #1 – the Vinicius & Odette Lara album from 1963 – a dream of a bossa session! The lovely Odette Lara sings vocals – and the music was written by Baden Powell and Vinicius De Morais, with arrangements by the great Moacir Santos. The sound is perfect Elenco bossa – with lightly lilting orchestrations that still have a lot of soul, and perfectly produced vocals drifting over the top. Titles include "Astronauta", "Berimbau", "Seja Feliz", "Samba Preludio", and "Alem Do Amor". Album #2 – Nara Leao 1964 – Incredible early bossa material from one of Brazil's greatest singers! The record is lively, yet sophisticated – with strong arrangements by Gaya and Moacir Santos, and a vocal approach by Nana that really moves past the sweeter sound of other bossa singers – into a mode that's rich with feeling, without sounding too overwrought or overemotional – in sharp contrast to the style of Brazilian divas from a few years before. Includes a wonderful version of Santos' "Nana", plus the tracks "Cancao Da Terra", "Consolacao", "Maria Moita", and "Berimbau". Album #3 – Caymmi Visita Tom – A landmark meeting of two Brazilian generations! The older singer/songwriter Dorival Caymmi meets up with Tom Jobim in this moody session of stripped-down tracks recorded in the famous Elenco style – and the result is a classic album that spans two generations of Brazilian music. Dorival brought along children Nana, Danilo, and Dori Caymmi to the session, and the backing includes percussion by Edison Machando – an guitar by Dori, and flute by Danilo. Tracks include "Sem Voce", "Berimbau", "Tristeza De Nos Dois", "Vae De Vez", and "Das Rosas". Album #4 – Bossa Nova York – A rare early session from Sergio Mendes – one that was recorded in New York, during a pre-66 visit by his core trio – and augmented with guest horn work from Art Farmer, Phil Woods, and Hubert Laws! Antonio Carlos Jobim plays a bit of guitar on the album, and the set's a straighter set of jazz than you might expect – with Sergio grooving hard on piano, and throwing in some light bossa touches to tracks that include "Maria Moita", "Sambinha Bossa Nova", "The Dreamer", "Primavera", "Favela", and "Pau Brazil". Album #5 – Vinicius & Caymmi No Zum Zum – An amazingly beautiful album, recorded by Vinicius De Moraes, Dorival Caymmi, Oscar Castro-Neves, and The Quarteto Em Cy for some sort of a special show. Castro-Neves provides some excellent bossa backing, the Quarteto girls sing chorus and over the top, Vinicius does some recitations, and Caymmi sings lead vocals. If the whole thing sound's a bit heavy-handed, it's not – and instead is an amazing batch of heavenly bossa-tinged tracks, with all the intelligence and imagination of the best titles on the Elenco label. The whole thing's extremely lively, and has an other-worldly sound that matches Vinicius' classic Afro Sambas LP with Baden Powell. Tracks include "Bom Dia Amigo", "Berimbau", "Historia De Pescadores", "Formosa", "Broto Maroto", and "Aruanda". LP, Vinyl record album

New VariousVinicius De Moraes – Modernism & Bossa Nova ... CD CD format
El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A set that really lives up to its title – especially considering that the music here is virtually the blueprint for the emergence of the modern in Brazilian music during the bossa generation! The collection features a range of different tunes from poet Vinicius De Moraes – an important early collaborator of Antonio Carlos Jobim, and one of the key architects of the bossa sound and spirit during the late 50s! The passage of tracks in the set really shows the evolution of the music – as it begins with more ambitious stage work done by the pair, then moves into a range of beautiful vocal numbers that illustrate all the subtle power of bossa lyricism at its best. Titles include "Um Nome Mulher" by Roberto Pava, "Eu Na Existo Sem Voce" by Silvia Telles & Lucio Alves, "Love & Peace" by Jon Hendricks, "Lamento No Morro Solo" by Luiz Bonfa, "Samba Em Preludio" by Agostinho Dos Santos & Rosana Toledo, "Aqua De Beber" by Ana Lucia, "Valsa De Euridice" by Lenita Bruno, "Chega De Saudade" by Os Cariocas, and "Valsa Do Amor De Nos Dois" by Elza Laranjeira.

New Marcos ValleSamba Demais (plus bonus track) ... CD CD format
Odeon/EMI (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Rare early work from the great Marcos Valle – and one of his first-ever albums! The record's very much in a moody bossa mode, and the orchestrations are wonderful – light, but never sleepy – really done with that unique new bent that Brazilian artists were using at the time, best heard in the work of Antonio Carlos Jobim. There's a nice sense of darkness here that doesn't show up on some of Valle's later albums – a really moody sensibility that works beautifully with the fragile nature of the tunes. A few cuts are originals by Valle, and others are familiar bossa tracks – with titles that include "Vivo Sonhando", "Moca Flor", "Sonho De Maria", "E Vem O Sol", "Tudo De Voce", and "A Morte De Um Deus De Sal" – plus the bonus track "Vamos Pranchar".
