Jorge BenAfrica Brasil (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1976. Used ... $29.99
A landmark recording that is one of Jorge Ben's best albums ever! The album is a perfect realization of the way that Jorge mixes Brazilian rhythms with choppy Afro grooves – and the result is a masterpiece that yeilded some of his biggest tracks ever. Included here is the great choppy funk ... read more CD

Philips/Dusty Groove, 1972. New Copy ... Around May 9, 2015
Amazing stuff from Jorge Ben – and the record that pushed him over the top! The album's a masterpiece of funky Brazilian soul – and it includes the huge hit "Taj Mahal", which still sounds great, even after all these years! Other great cuts include "Fio Maravilha", ... read more CD

New Jorge BenBig Ben ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

Jorge BenNegro E Lindo ... CD
Philips/Dusty Groove, 1971. New Copy ... Around August 1, 2014 (delayed)
A seminal set from Jorge Ben – one that mixes samba soul with more baroque arrangements from the legendary Arthur Verocai! The record's got a different feel than some of Jorge's other work – almost a wider vision of music that ties his usual funky style to some of the more ambitious ... read more CD
(On the Dusty Groove label.)
Also available Negro E Lindo (180 gram pressing) ... LP

Jorge BenSolta O Pavao ... CD
Philips/Dusty Groove, 1975. New Copy ... Around August 1, 2014 (delayed)
A nice one from Jorge! The record's one of his best from the 70s – and it's got a groove that's somewhere between "Taj Mahal" and "Africa Brasil". Jorge's guitar work is nice and tight, and his vocals are, as always, extremely captivating. The tracks are short, choppy, ... read more CD

New Jorge BenTabua De Esmeralda ... CD
Philips/Universal (Brazil), 1974. Used ... Out Of Stock
Searing samba soul from Jorge Ben – one of his best-remembered albums of the 70s, and for good reason too! The album's got a slightly fuller feel than some of Ben's other work of the time – never slick, but with backings balanced nicely against his own raspy vocals and acoustic guitar ... read more CD

New Chico BuarqueConstrucao ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
If you've ever been wondering which album to get by Chico Buarque – this is it! The record's a stunning batch of sophisticated sides, done in collaboration with Roberto Menescal, and with help from Jobim and MPB4! The album builds on the style of Buarque's excellent late 60s songwriting, ... read more CD
(Note: the CD has a few slight dips in sound at times, very brief and nothing major – and this is an issue with the original mastering of the record.)

New Chico Buarque & Maria BethaniaChico e Maria Ao Vivo ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1975. Used ... Out Of Stock
Chico and Maria sing together, recorded live in Rio in 1975 – backed by arrangements by Maestro Gaya and The Terra Trio with Luis Claudio. Titles include many numbers written by Chico – such as "Flor Da Idade", "Vai Levando", "Bem Querer", "Noite Dos ... read more CD

New Gal CostaCantar ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A real moment of beauty from Gal Costa in the 70s – a set that moves away from her more experimental music of the Tropicalia generation, and yields a more personal approach overall – one that's quite similar to the best from Caetano Veloso at the time! As with Caetano during this shift ... read more CD

Eumir DeodatoInutil Paisagem (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Think (Japan), 1964. New Copy Gatefold ... $24.99
Beautiful airy bossa! This album's a 1964 session of straight piano bossa tracks by Deodato, with production by Roberto Quartin – and a sound that's a lot more mellow and fragile than his other records from the time! Deodato is amazingly restrained in his playing, and sticks to only piano ... read more CD

Neyde Fraga with Walter WanderleyBalancando (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Think (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $32.99
A really wonderful set of bossa nova vocals – one that features singer Neyde Fraga working with the keyboard talents of the great Walter Wanderley! Walter later cut a famous record for Verve with Astrud Gilberto – but this sweet little set is a real prequel to that album, and features ... read more CD

New Gilberto GilGilberto Gil (1971 – plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Philips/Water, 1971. Used ... Out Of Stock
A rare British recording from Gilberto Gil – sung completely in English, and recorded while living in London, in political exile along with Caetano Veloso! The album's somewhat similar to Veloso's famous London album from 1971 – certainly in structure, as the backings are relatively ... read more CD

Luiz HenriqueA Bossa Moderna De Luiz Henrique (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Think (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $24.99
The title is perfect for the sound of this early set from Luiz Henrique – as the music is definitely the modern bossa promised in the title, and almost even groovier than some of Henrique's later American work for Verve! Luiz sings and plays guitar throughout – and often hits this ... read more CD

New JoyceJoyce (1968) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first album by Joyce – one of our favorite Brazilian singers ever! The album's a wonderfully lyrical batch of tracks – many written by Joyce herself, plus a few by Brazilian songwriters Jards Macale, Toninho Horta, and Marcos Valle – and the orchestrations are by Gaya, and ... read more CD

New Nara LeaoCom Acucar Com Afeto ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Lovely stuff! This record's a stunning batch of light tracks – most with a jazzy samba or late bossa sound – and the kind of sparkling production that Nara used a lot more later in the decade. Antonio Adolfo plays piano (and very nicely, we might add!) – and the rest of the ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
New Nara LeaoMeu Primeiro Amor ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Light and lovely tunes from Nara Leao – a sweet mid 70s session that's filled with great vocals and a fair bit of acoustic guitar! The sound here isn't nearly as dark as Leao's work of the 60s – and even as some of her albums from a few years before – but the record's still rich ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Nara LeaoOnde E Quando ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1989. New Copy ... $13.99
One of Nara Leao's later bossa gems – done in a real return to basics, and with some great help here from Roberto Menescal! Roberto arranged, produced, and plays guitar in the small combo backing Nara's vocals – and the sound is a strong precursor to the huge wave of bossa revival ... read more CD

New Rita LeeBuild Up ... CD
Philips/El (UK), 1970. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first solo album by Rita Lee – cut back when she was a member of the groundbreaking Tropicalia trio, Os Mutantes! The album's got a very different feel than her work with that group – and has Rita stepping out as a sophisticated pop singer, almost in the way that Nico did on the ... read more CD

Philips/Universal (Brazil), 1970/1972/1974. New Copy 3 CDs ... Out Of Stock
The first three solo albums from Os Mutantes singer Rita Lee – all work that really follows in a great vibe from her key contributions to the Tropicalia scene! Build Up has Rita stepping out as a sophisticated pop singer, almost in the way that Nico did on the Chelsea Girl album, after ... read more CD

Gracinha LeporaceGracinha (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Think (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $32.99
Great early work from singer Gracinha Leporace – a vocalist you might know from her later work in Bossa Rio, or her recordings with husband Sergio Mendes! Even at the start, Gracinha's a hell of a singer – a vocalist who's capable of all the coolness of the bossa era, yet still richly ... read more CD
