Caetano Veloso —
Joia ... LP Philips (Brazil), 1975. Very Good ...
Caetano Veloso in a wonderfully intimate mode – singing in this great spare setting that features only a bit of minimal instrumentation on guitar, percussion, and keyboards – a style that's very much in the best territory of his Qualquer Coisa record! Veloso's vocals are wonderful in ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Walter Wanderley —
Cheganca ... LP Verve, 1966. Very Good+ Gatefold ...
Just Sold Out!
Bossa nova meets organ jazz – a real classic from the great Walter Wanderley, recorded right on the heels of his famous Rain Forest album for Verve! This set's in a very similar format to that one – core trio grooving with organ, bass, and drums – sometimes augmented with added ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Walter Wanderley opens up wonderfully on both organ and electric harpsichord here – going for a very different sound than on his earlier records, and with plenty of great late 60s CTI touches! The music is as heavenly as you might guess from the title – a dreamy recasting of Brazilian ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

One of those impossible to find records by Tom Ze from the 70s – and well worth the search! The record has Ze working in a slightly more conventional mode – with a mix of styles that ranges from spare percussive tracks, to others that have a smoother production style, but still a ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Incredible! This is one of Tom Ze's best albums ever – and it's monsterously hard to find. The record is a fantastic blend of post-Tropicalia styles – and it features some strange arrangements that perfectly illustrated Ze's insane approach to songwriting. As with much of Ze's music, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of Tom Ze's greatest records – and an album that proves that the Tropicalista spirit didn't die once Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil went into exile! The cover is a bit standard, in comparison to the artier look of other Tom Ze albums – but the sound is very forward-thinking, and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A wonderful overview of contemporary sounds from the Brazilian underground – artists all marked by the "10s" in the title, as they've just begun to blossom in the current decade! The set's one of the freshest we've heard in years – and really gives us a great opportunity to ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A second amazing set from Mr Bongo – and like their first batucada collection, a set that's without comparison when it comes to drum-heavy grooves! The music here is all very specially chosen – killer cuts from years back, with loads of heavy percussion, and some great melodic elements ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Think Brazil only gave the world bossa nova and samba? Think again – because this set is a great example of the nation's rich legacy of soul music – especially the kind of upbeat, hard-grooving styles that still stay strong on today's global dancefloors! The groundbreaking collection ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
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!

One of the hippest of the International Song Festival albums – thanks to a great selection of work from some of Odeon's best artists of the time!
