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 Lins & Geraldo FlachMuito Bom Tocar Juntos ... CD
Discobertas (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... $16.99
One of the best albums we've ever heard from this legendary Brazilian singer – at least within the past decade or so – a fantastic reunion with pianist/arranger Geraldo Flach, who gives the music a jazzy flow that's totally wonderful! Both Ivan Lins and Geraldo play piano and keyboards ... read more CD

✨✧ Maria LuizaJazz In Bossa/Bossa In Jazz ... CD
Coqueiro (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
The title's no lie, as the set features sounds in both of the different modes – a bit of jazz here, inflected with bossa rhythms – some bossa nova there, but given an especially jazzy take – thanks to the mighty talents of Roberto Menescal, who produced the record, arranged the ... read more CD

Kay LyraJust A Silly Game ... CD
Sunnyside, 2016. New Copy ... $14.99 16.98
Lovely vocals from Kay Lyra – the daughter of bossa legend Carlos Lyra, and a singer who's equally at home singing in English and Portuguese! There's definitely some bossa currents here that showcase her family legacy, but the sound is also much more wide-ranging too – especially on ... read more CD

✨✧ Jards MacaleAnos 70s (Jards Macale/AprenderA Nadar/Raros E Inedito) (4CD set) ... CD
Polydor/Discobertas (Brazil), Mid 70s. New Copy 4 CDs ... $48.99
A much-needed look at the 70s work of Jards Macale – a singer/songwriter who was almost as important to his generation as Caetano Veloso or Tom Ze! First up is the 1972 self-titled album Jards Macale – an album that we'd rank right up there with work by Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, or ... 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

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

Polydor/Oficial Arquivos, 1970. New Copy ... $12.99 15.99
The incredible first album by Tim Maia – Brazil's greatest soul star in the 70s, and for good reason too – given that Tim was one of the few who could match the depth of American soul and funk at the time! Yet the music here is way more than just a Brazilian version of American soul ... read more CD

Polydor/Oficial Arquivos, 1971. New Copy ... $12.99 15.99
One of the funkiest records ever from Brazilian soul legend Tim Maia – and a set that also has him singing a bit of English language lyrics too! The groove here is that classic Maia blend of Brazilian roots with American funk and soul – echoes of forro or samba in some of the rhythms, ... read more CD

Polygram/Oficial Arquivos, 1972. New Copy ... $12.99 15.99
An amazing early effort from Brazilian soul hero Tim Maia – one of his greatest ever!

Polydor/Oficial Arquivos, 1973. New Copy ... $12.99 15.99
A great step forward for the legendary Tim Maia – working here in a style that's even tighter and more sophisticated than before – yet still equally filled with funk and soul! The arrangements are a bit bigger than before, and the production a bit more professional – but that ... read more CD

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

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

An incredible treasure of Brazilian music – the only album we've ever seen from Jose Mauro, and one of the few records ever issued on the legendary Quartin label!

MaysaBarquinho ... CD
Columbia/Sony (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $14.99
A classic album by Maysa – one of Brazil's most evocative vocalists of the 60s, recorded here in a lovely session of bossa tunes that begins with her stunning reading of "O Barquinho"! There's a core jazz group backing Maysa up – and strings and larger orchestrations drift ... read more CD

RGE/Som Livre (Brazil), Late 50s. New Copy 4CD ... $29.99
Four beautiful early albums from Maysa – the Brazilian singer who hit a bit of fame in the bossa nova years, but who also began her recording career in the 50s! Maysa's got a full, expressive style that's unusual if you only know Brazilian singers from the 60s onward – maybe almost ... read more CD

Helio Mendes e Seu Trio VagalumeNa Bossa ... CD
Musiplay/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $23.99
A real killer from pianist Helio Mendes – not to be confused with Sergio Mendes, although this cooking early 60s album has all the same bossa jazz sound we love on Sergio's early work! The album's all instrumental, and has Helio really romping right out front on the piano – over ... read more CD

Sergio Mendes & Brasil 77Vintage 74 ... CD
Bell/Sony (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $14.99
An excellent little album that Sergio recorded in the US – with a sweet funky electric sound that's very different than his other work! At some level, the album has a feel that's almost like a hip 70s soundtrack – sporting these great arrangements by Dave Grusin that bring in a lot ... read more CD
