Gilberto GilRefavela (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1977. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99
One of the funkiest albums ever from Gilberto Gil – a set that beautifully mixes rootsy elements with tighter funk arrangements – in a style that's not unlike some of the 70s samba soul experiments from Jorge Ben! The record borrows heavily from American funk and soul of the time, and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Astrud GilbertoAstrud Gilberto Album ... LP
Verve, 1965. Near Mint- ... $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 ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(MGM pressing with deep groove and Van Gelder stamp.)

Astrud GilbertoGilberto With Turrentine ... LP
CTI, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $19.99
Incredible 70s work from the lovely Astrud Gilberto – a rare effort for the CTI label that has her teaming up with arranger Eumir Deodato and saxophonist Stanley Turrentine – all in a groove that's totally different than most of her earlier work! Astrud's breathy vocals are still ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some gloss wear.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Astrud GilbertoLook To The Rainbow ... LP
Verve, 1965. Near Mint- ... $29.99
One of the moodiest Verve albums from Astrud Gilberto – a set that has some surprising arrangements by Gil Evans – working here on one of his few 60s dates with a singer! Astrud's blue-tinged vocals work perfectly with Evans' backdrops – and Al Cohn also takes over the helm on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(MGM pressing, with deep groove & Van Gelder stamp.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Astrud GilbertoShadow Of Your Smile ... LP
Verve, 1965. Very Good ... $9.99
One of Astrud Gilberto's greatest albums – and quite possibly our personal favorite! The record features beautifully understated arrangements by Joao Donato, Don Sebesky, and Claus Ogerman – and the instrumentation is a haunting mix of bossa rhythms with darker orchestrations that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(MGM pressing. Cover has some surface wear and splitting on the spine.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Astrud Gilberto & Walter WanderleyCertain Smile, Certain Sadness ... LP
Verve, 1966. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Kind of a dream combination in one little album – especially if you dig breezy bossa from the 60s! Back in 1966, Verve Records got the great idea of teaming up its (then) biggest Brazilian imports – vocalist Astrud Gilberto and organist Walter Wanderley – both of whom were ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Joao GilbertoAmoroso ... LP
Warner, 1977. Near Mint- ... $16.99
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 LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Joao GilbertoBrazil's Brilliant Joao Gilberto ... LP
Capitol, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $24.99
This is the original US pressing of an album that was later issued by Capitol under a different name. Given that Capitol had recently linked up with the ever-growing EMI corporation in the early 60s, it was able to take advantage of the global catalog of the music giant, and managed to dip pretty ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label stereo pressing. Cover has light aging and some notes on back.)

Joao Gilberto & Antonio Carlos JobimGilberto & Jobim ... LP
Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $8.99
Given that Capitol had recently linked up with the ever-growing EMI corporation in the early 60s, it was able to take advantage of the global catalog of the music giant, and managed to dip pretty heavily into the Brazilian Odeon catalog of tunes to cash in on the American popularity of bossa nova. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Joao Gilberto/Caetano Veloso/Gilberto Gil/Maria BBrasil (photo cover) ... LP
Warner, 1981. Near Mint- ... $19.99
The best of Brazil, old and new – as Joao Gilberto meets up with a younger generation of Brazilian vocalists – Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, and Maria Bethania – all for a wonderful session of stripped-down bossa! The work is very much in Joao's best style of the early 70s – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Dutch pressing.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Egberto GismontiCidade Coracao ... LP
EMI (Brazil), 1983. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $24.99
A weird album of mostly electric keyboards, played in a mix of jazz styles, with Gismonti's usual unique approach. There's some occasional vocals, but the bulk of the music sounds like jaunty instrumental tracks from a French soundtrack, or something like that. Titles include "Abertura" ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a very small mark from an old sticker.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Egberto GismontiDanca Das Cabecas ... LP
ECM, 1977. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A really unique moment for Brazilian genius Egberto Gismonti – as the album marks a strong move away from some of the fuller orchestrations of his previous sets! The album features Gismonti on acoustic 8 string guitar – mixed with piano, wood flutes, and voice – plus some sublime ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Egberto GismontiFantasia ... LP
EMI (Brazil), 1982. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Compelling work from Egberto Gismonti – working here in a largely electronic basis, and using a host of keyboards to weave complicated soundscapes that are a great extension of his arrangements from the early and mid 70s! By that, we mean the sound is nicely complicated at points, yet still ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a small bit of tape on the bottom seam.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Egberto GismontiTrem Caipira ... LP
EMI (Brazil), 1985. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Wonderfully evocative work from Egberto Gismonti – a set based around the music of Hecto Villa-Lobos, but taken to much more creatively modern territory! The older compositions are a wonderful match for Gismonti's free-thinking approach to music – and the tunes are really opened up ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Brazilian pressing, including the insert.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Luiz Gonzaga Jr (Gonzaguinha)Alo Alo Brasil ... LP
EMI (Brazil), 1983. Very Good+ ... $4.99
This one's awash in keyboard work by Jota Moraes – smooth, but not slick, in a style that's a bit more stripped down and less ambitious than some of Luiz's other work – yet done in a way that actually still sounds pretty great. Overall, the record's a bit more intimate, a bit more ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(In the nice envelope style sleeve with the heavy inner sleeve. Vinyl has a short click in one spot, but the rest is great.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Luiz Gonzaga Jr (Gonzaguinha)Gonzaguinha Da Vida ... LP
EMI (Brazil), 1979. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $26.99
Wonderfully complicated, like most of Luiz Gonzaga Jr's best work of the 70s – a unique blend of expansive arrangements and pure, honest vocalizations. The mix here is extremely fitting of Brazil at the time – and Luiz is joined by a number of artists who share a similar sympathy, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes heavy inner sleeve.)

GuanabaraBrazilian Beat of Guanabara ... LP
Baystate (Japan), 1982. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A very nice batch of fusion tracks – issued here in a Japanese-only album – with the requisite Brazilian touches you'd expect from the title! The record features some great guest work on trumpet – either by Terumasa Hino or Shunzo Ono, both of whom are some of Japan's greatest ... (Jazz, Brazil) read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes insert.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Vince Guaraldi & Bola SeteLive At El Matador ... LP
Fantasy, 1966. Sealed ... $19.99
A hip little live date from the team of Vince Guaraldi and Bola Sete – one that's a bit heavier on Vince's piano than Bola's guitar – but in a way that's a-OK with us! There's a sweetly gliding sensibility to the whole set – that warm lyricism and subtle soul that Guaraldi always ... (Jazz, Brazil) read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed pressing – probably 70s, as there's no barcode. Cvoer has a cut corner, and another slightly bumped corner.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Francoise HardyLa Question (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Parlophone, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
One of the coolest albums ever from Francoise Hardy – a set that has her working with Brazilian arranger Tuca, who brings a very different vibe to her music – a mode that wraps together acoustic guitar, post-bossa arrangements, and some dark-tinged vocals from Francoise – all in a ...

HyldonNa Rua, Na Chuva, Na Fazenda (180 gram presssing) ... LP
Polydor/Polysom (Brazil), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
Fantastic work by this underdiscovered Brazilian talent! Hyldon was part of the 70s Brazilian soul and funk generation that included Tim Maia, Cassiano, and Toni Tornado – but he'd also absorbed a lot of the singer/songwriter influences of Caetano Veloso, who's laidback mid 70s style will ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
