Nara LeaoCom Acucar Com Afeto ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $13.99
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

Nara LeaoGarota De Ipanema ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1989. Used ... $11.99
Nice album recorded in 1989 under the supervision of bossa master Roberto Menescal. Menescal did all the arrangements, and he plays guitar behind Nara's lovely vocals. The record was recorded in Japan, with excellent fidelity, and a spare instrumentation in the classic bossa style. Nara reprises ... read more CD

Nara LeaoMeu Primeiro Amor ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
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

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

Rita LeeHoje E O Primeiro Dia Do Resto Da Sua Vida (Brazilian pressing) ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 1972. Used ... $15.99
A tripped-out batch of hard jamming tracks from ex-Mutante Rita Lee – recorded with assistance from all the members of the group at the time, but in a mode that's quite different overall! Lee is clearly the star of the show here – singing all lyrics with a much fiercer vocal approach ... read more CD

Anilza Leoni/Sambalanca TrioFesta Do Balamba/Samblues ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99
A totally great cut from Anilza Leoni – a track that has this jazzy Hammond over fast-stepping drums – while Anizla sings in a cool scatting style over the top! The track's very unusual – a lot different than the usual bossa groover, but equally great! "Samblues" is a ... (Funky 45's, Brazil) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

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

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
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

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
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 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Som Livre/Polysom (Brazil), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99
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 LP, Vinyl record album

Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
An incredible album by one of our favorite Brazilian artists! This gem from 1972 is an album that we'd rank right up there with work by Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, or Lo Borges from the same time – with an underground singer/songwriter style, performed in a manner that mixes rock and jazz ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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

Marina MachadoTempo Quente ... CD
EMI (Brazil), 2008. Used ... $4.99
A great debut from Maria Machado – a set that's produced by Milton Nascimento, but with a vibe that's a lot fresher than most of his own recent work! At some level, Maria's a contemporary bossa singer – but at another, she's working with a wide palette of sounds and colors – bits ... read more CD

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
