Nara LeaoNara Leao (1968) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $13.99
Pure genius – a lost Nara Leao album from the late 60s, and a key piece in the puzzle of late 60s Tropicalia – a set we'd place right next to equally important records by Caetano Veloso, Gal Costa, and Os Mutantes! Although Leao always gets cited as one of the more revolutionary ... read more CD

Ivan LinsAwa Yio ... CD
Reprise (Japan), 1991. New Copy ... $14.99
A record cut at a time when Brazilian singer Ivan Lins was enjoying a great wave of international fame – a moment that resulted in music that almost had him reaching out as a majestic singer, able to inspire the whole world at once, rather than just the mainstream audiences back home in ... read more CD

Ivan LinsChama Acesa ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $14.99
A great album from one of Ivan Lins' best periods – a great shift in his music, with a sound that's made the album one of his all-time classics! The set has him adapting more of a jazzy sound than on earlier records – dropping some of the baroque arrangements for a sound that's leaner, ... read more CD

Ivan LinsLove Dance ... CD
Reprise (Japan), 1989. New Copy ... $14.99
A record with a cheesy title and cover, but with a sound that's completely sublime – that transcendent vocal approach and incredible songwriting that makes just about any record by Ivan Lins a real treasure! The set's not as experimental as his earliest work, but it's got a rock-solid sound ... read more CD

Ivan LinsModo Livre ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $14.99
Sublime early work from Ivan Lins – exactly the kind of album that made him one of the global breakout talents from Brazil in the 70s – and a record that you can still pick up all these many years later, and find the same sort of genius! Arrangements are by Arthur Verocai – who ... read more CD

Ivan LinsNos Dias De Hoje ... CD
Odeon/EMI (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
Excellent work from Ivan Lins' best period! The record captures him at a perfect point – when he was honing his songwriting to an incredibly precise style that would match the best work of Milton Nascimento or Lo Borges, but before he's gotten a bit too slickly produced. This record ... read more CD

Ivan LinsNovo Tempo ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $13.99
A beautiful album by Ivan Lins – truly one of his greatest records, and a real gem that stands out as one of the best in his already-excellent catalog! The set has Ivan stepping out strongly from his sound of the 70s – working with Gilson Peranzzetta in a set of arrangements that have ... read more CD

Jards MacaleContrastes (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Som Livre (Brazil), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
A straighter album than some of the early experimental work of Jards Macale – but maybe a greater album as well – and one that really shows the singer coming into his own, and finding a way to nestle his fresh ideas within the best settings of 70s MPB! The shift's a bit like the ... read more CD
Also available Contrastes (180 gram pressing) ... LP 34.99

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Edison MachadoEdison Machado e Samba Novo ... CD
Columbia/Sony (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $14.99
One of Brazil's best jazz sessions of the 60s – and one of those records that shows that although Verve and other US labels could record their own version of bossa nova, the style still always sounded best when coming from Brazil! Drummer Edison Machado really nocks it out of the park here ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Herbie Mann & Joao GilbertoHerbie Mann & Joao Gilberto With Antonio Carlos Jobim ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... $14.99
A great little record, and one that might be thought of best as a "Herbie Mann Plus" record – rather than a duet between the artists on the cover! Half the set features the American release of some great Joao Gilberto material from the early years in Brazil, with arrangements from ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Leila MariaLeila Maria Canta Billie Holiday In Rio ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2015. New Copy ... $9.99
Not the usual Billie Holiday tribute set – given the fresh approach that Leila Maria brings to her vocals, and the way that the album's mix of arrangers really change things up! The album's definitely cast in Billie's legacy, but not slavishly so – and instead has this cool, ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Cesar Camargo MarianoOcteto de Cesar Camargo Mariano ... CD
RGE/Bomba (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... $13.99
Excellent early bossa work from pianist Cesar Camargo Mariano! Cesar's probably best known for his funky fusion work of the late 70s, and for his accompaniment of Elis Regina on some of her classic Philips sides in the same decade – but back at the time of this recording, he was leading a ... read more CD

Andre Marques/John Patitucci/Brian BladeViva Hermeto ... CD
Boranda, 2015. New Copy ... $16.99
The music of Brazilian genius Hermeto Pascoal, turned into a sweet set of jazzy trio numbers from Andrew Marques on piano, John Patitucci on bass, and Brian Blade on drums! The group really hit the right sort of essence for Hermeto's tunes – that open, fluid, yet highly rhythmic vibe that's ... (Jazz, Brazil) read more CD

Sergio MendesHorizonte Aberto ... CD
Som Livre (Brazil), 1979. New Copy ... $13.99
Quite a compelling album from Sergio Mendes – one that was never issued in the US, and which is a nice contrast to his American records of the time! The vibe here is maybe a bit more Brazilian, and a bit more jazzy, than some of the more soul-based sounds that Sergio was cutting in LA – ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
MiltinhoEu Miltinho ... CD
RGE/Som Livre (Brazil), Early 60s. New Copy ... $8.99
A classic set of samba from Miltinho – done in a mix of lively styles and more romantic modes! Some tracks here are quite driving and upbeat, while others have a sadder, more emotive feel – a bit like Brazilian pop of the late 50s, but perhaps somewhat leaner overall – and in a ... read more CD

MiuchaAo Vivo No Paco Imperial ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2000. New Copy ... $14.99
A nice little live set from bossa singer Miucha – a vocalist we know best for her late 70s collaborations with Antonio Carlos Jobim, sounding equally great here with just a spare trio to back her up! The concert is from the turn of the century – and has that mix of subtle, ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Miucha & Antonio Carlos JobimMiucha & Antonio Carlos Jobim ... CD
RCA/Sony (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $14.99
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 ... read more CD
Also available Miucha & Antonio Carlos Jobim ... CD 11.99

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Miucha & Antonio Carlos JobimMiucha & Tom Jobim (1979) ... CD
RCA/Sony (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $14.99
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 ... read more CD

Marisa MonteMarisa Monte Colecao ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... $21.99
Marisa Monte's wearing a tiara on the cover, but that doesn't mean that she's gotten too classy for our company – as instead she's simply celebrating a great run of music over the past 20 years, by pulling together a selection of classics and more obscure numbers, including a number of titles ... read more CD

✨✧ Doris MonteiroDoris (1973) ... CD
Odeon/Bomba (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $13.99
An incredible album from singer Doris Monteiro – one of her most unique sessions of the 70s, thanks to some great arrangements from Geraldo Vespar! The style here is a real mix of modes – with some tracks that have a great electric feel, and some nice Fender Rhodes in the ... read more CD
