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

MaysaConvite Para Ouvir Maysa (4CD set) ... 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 ... $16.99
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 MendesGreat Arrival ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1966. Used ... $9.99
One of Sergio Mendes' most dreamy albums – quite different than both his vocal work with Brasil 66, and his smaller combo sides from Brazil! There's still a strong bossa component to the record – but the setting has Sergio's piano lines laid out over larger arrangements with a good ... read more CD

Sergio MendesHorizonte Aberto ... CD
Som Livre (Brazil), 1979. New Copy ... $14.99
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

Sergio MendesSergio Mendes' Favorite Things ... CD
Atlantic, 1968. Used ... $8.99
A sweet little pairing of the keyboards of Sergio Mendes and the early arranging styles of Dave Grusin – and a set that's quite different than some of Sergio's vocal albums with Brasil 66! The style here is all instrumental – and Mendes plays both piano and electric piano, plus a bit ... read more CD

Sergio MendesSwinger From Rio ... LP
Atlantic, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $14.99
A rare early session from Sergio Mendes – one that was recorded in New York, during a pre-66 visit by his core trio – and augmented with guest horn work from Art Farmer, Phil Woods, and Hubert Laws! Antonio Carlos Jobim plays a bit of guitar on the album, and the set's a straighter set ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sergio Mendes & Bossa RioVoce Ainda Nao Ouviu Nada (Edicao Historica) ... LP
Philips/Fontana (Brazil), Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $29.99
Early bossa jazz from Sergio Mendes – recorded with his famous Bossa Rio combo, in the years before he moved to America! The album's a classic in Brazilian jazz – a tight album of bossa-inflected jazz tunes played with razor-sharp precision, handled with a style that went on to ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A&M (Japan), 1969. Used ... $8.99
Dreamy loveliness from Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66! The album's one of their true 60s classics for A&M – a sublime blend of female vocals, Brazilian rhythms, and jazzy instrumentation – groovily dancing with a light and breezy sound that influenced a generation, and which still ... read more CD

A&M (Japan), 1966. Used ... $9.99
The start of a legend – and the very first album by Sergio Mendes' Brasil 66 group, proudly brought to the world through the godlike talents of a young Herb Alpert!

✨✧ Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66Ye-Me-Le ... LP
A&M, 1969. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Way past the hits, and into some really great territory – a move that makes the record one of our favorite Sergio Mendes sets for A&M! The sweeter bossa pop style here is undercut with a bit more influence from late 60s Brazilian grooves – some of the more baroque turns that Sergio' ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sergio Mendes & Brasil '77Raizes (aka Roots) ... LP
A&M (Brazil), 1972. Very Good ... $13.99
Brazilian pressing of the album issued in the US as Primal Roots! The record's a great album from the early 70's that has Sergio and the group running through a set of material that has a much more stripped down Brazilian feel than their pop stuff of the sixties. As the title Primal Roots might ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66Classics Vol 18 ... CD
A&M, 1960s/1970s. Used ... $5.99
Was there ever anyone groovier than these guys? We don't think so – as Sergio had it all: 2 female singers in the lead, great bossa nova backing, and production on his records that couched the grooves in the pillowy-soft pop style of the A&M studios! This 17 track package isn't much ... read more CD

Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66Frog/Watch What Happens ... 7-inch
A&M, Late 60s. Very Good+ (pic cover)... $4.99
A very groovy single from Sergio Mendes! "The Frog" is a gem by Joao Donato – also recorded under the name "A Sapo" – and the cut's got a jaunty little groove with a back-forth melody that's totally dreamy, and perfect for the Brasil 66 sound! "Watch What ... (Funky 45's, Brazil) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66Stillness ... LP
A&M, 1970. Very Good Gatefold ... $8.99
A real classic from Sergio Mendes – probably most famous for its funky bits! The record pushes past the formula of the earlier Brasil 66 albums, and goes for a more sophisticated approach that adds in some sweet electric moments, more complicated grooves, and an overall sound that's even ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Bell/BMG (Japan), 1974. Used ... $15.99
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

Roberto MenescalBossa Evergreen ... CD
Albatroz (Brazil), 2000. Used ... $14.99
Mellow bossa instrumentals, played by one of the greatest talents of the original bossa era! The sound of the set's a bit modern – with some electric instrumentation and smooth production – but Menescal's guitar is as light and lively as ever, and he slides into the set's classic bossa ... read more CD
