AirtoFree ... CD
CTI/King (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the coolest, grooviest albums you'll ever hear from the legendary percussionist Airto – a set that mixes his own Brazilian roots with the electric genius of 70s CTI – all with stunning results! Airto's in the lead – and blows some beautiful wood flute lines alongside ... (Jazz, Brazil) read more CD

AirtoVirgin Land ... CD
Salvation/King (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99
A great little fusion set from Airto – recorded in a mode that's a great bridge between his acoustic roots and some of his smoother albums in years to come! The sound has some key electric elements here – bits of bass, guitar, and keyboards – but there's still a strongly acoustic ... read more CD

Harry Allen with JoyceSomething About Jobim ... CD
Stunt (Denmark), 2015. New Copy ... $15.99 18.99
A lovely little Brazilian-styled set from tenorist Harry Allen – and one that features vocals and guitar from the wonderful Joyce! Almost all titles are originals by Antonio Carlos Jobim – as you'd guess from the title – but Allen's deep-voiced approach moves them into very ... (Jazz, Brazil) read more CD

Marcos AmorimSea Of Tranquility ... CD
Adventure Music, 2016. New Copy ... $8.99 15.99
Beautifully subtle guitar work from Marcos Amorim – a musician who plays an electric instrument, but can often make it feel as if waves of sound are just cascading out gently into the air – more tone than attack on the strings, with this style that's deft, but very unassuming – ... read more CD
Also available Sea Of Tranquility ... CD 6.99

Miguel AngelSamba Na Onda ... CD
Equipe/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $21.99
An upbeat groover from 60s Brazil – a highly percussive album that features work by Wilson Das Neves and Rubens Bassini – plus some excellent chorus vocals too! The whole thing's maybe a bit more of a hard-driving example of the Brazilian harmony mode heard from bigger groups like ... read more CD

Clarice & Sergio AssadReliquia ... CD
Adventure Music, 2016. New Copy ... $12.99 15.99
Really lovely sounds from the father/daughter team of Clarice and Sergio Assad – a pair who would already be great as a musical duo, even without a family connection! Sergio plays acoustic guitar throughout – with a fullness of sound, but also the lighter, lyrical sensibility that ... read more CD

Geraldo AzevedoGeraldo Azevedo ... CD
Som Livre (Brazil), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
Soaring and soulful work from Geraldo Azevedo – a nearly lost treasure from the mid 70s, but a record we'd rank right up there with the best from Lo Borges or Milton Nascimento from the time! As with those two, there's a blend here between intimacy and majesty – simple, poetic lyrics ... read more CD

Balona E Seu ConjuntoGarota De Ipanema ... CD
Paladium/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $23.99
A rare one from 60s Brazil – and a really great small combo bossa session with some very unusual instrumentation! At their core, the Balona group seem to be a bossa piano trio – but many tracks here have a little "something else" – vibes, electric guitar, or trumpet ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Milton BananaAo Meu Amigo Tom – Samba E Isso Vol 4 ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $14.99
Sweet later work from bossa jazz drummer Milton Banana – a set of tunes delivered as a tribute to Antonio Carlos Jobim, but done very much in the spirit of Banana's best 70s work! The style here is a bit more expansive than Milton's harder-edged sets of the 60s – core trio work ... read more CD

BarbatuquesAyu ... CD
Mr Bongo (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
Very cool sounds from this unique Brazilian group – an ensemble whose music mostly comes from their voices and percussive sounds made on their bodies! The approach is surprisingly great – and maybe not nearly as squishy as you'd expect – as there's a clean, clear sound to the ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Vincente BarretoCambaco ... CD
Guara (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... $22.99
Fantastic work from Vicente Barreto – an artist who's been making music for decades in Brazil, but maybe has never sounded this fresh or exciting before! The set's got a surprisingly sharp edge – much more like some of the much younger indie records from the scene, but with a depth ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Rubens BassiniRitmo Fantastico ... CD
Pawal/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1961. New Copy ... $16.99
Fantastic rhythms from percussionist Rubens Bassini – a set that has all the raw live energy of a Latin jazz jam session, but which also carries some of the sweet touches of the bossa nova scene in Brazil – a really wonderful mixing of modes that makes the album a gem all the way ... read more CD

Jorge BenBen (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Dusty Groove, 1972. New Copy ... $11.99 18.98
A stunner of a record from the mighty Jorge Ben – and a record that catapulted the Brazilian singer to international fame at the time! Ben had already been making magic for almost a decade down in Brazil – and his compositions and grooves left an undeniable impact on the scene in the ... read more CD
(Limited edition of 2000 copies – in a nice LP-styled sleeve!)

Jorge BenSalve Simpatia ... CD
Som Livre (Brazil), 1979. New Copy ... $14.99
Late 70s funky soul from Jorge Ben – with a somewhat slyer, slinkier take on the funk groove than his classic work earlier in the decade, and ultimately love it just as much! The tracks bounce along with a tight samba soul approach that's built very much on Jorge's earlier experiments – ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Jorge BenSamba Nova (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Antilles/Oficial Arquivos, 1976. New Copy ... $11.99 14.98
One of the few albums by Jorge Ben that was issued in America – a mid-70s set that brings together some of the best work he recorded for Philips Records in Brazil in the late 60s and early 70s! The work here is the stuff of legend – sounds that effortlessly blend samba and soul, all ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Maria BethaniaDezembros ... CD
Sony (Japan), 1986. New Copy ... $9.99
One of Maria Bethania's best albums of the 80s – a set that has the singer almost hitting a more personal, more intimate mode – working with music from Caetano Veloso that helps bring in a closeness that Bethania was sometimes missing in her sound! The approach is a bit jazzy at times ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Joao BoscoCaca a Raposa ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $14.99
Maybe one of the best-remembered albums from the legendary 70s run of Joao Bosco – a set that manages to bring together jazzy instrumentation, samba rhythms, folksy elements, and a whole new level of songwriting – all in a blend that beautifully announces Bosco's genius to the world! ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Bossa 4Repeteco ... CD
Equipe/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $23.99
An obscure bossa combo, but a great one too – featured here on a rare 60s album for the Equipe label, which was also home to some of Dedoato's earliest work! The feel here is a bit like some of those better-known records – with organ lines stepping out over some lively samba and bossa ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Victor Assis BrasilTrajeto ... CD
Equipe/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $23.99
A wonderful early album from Victor Assis Brasil – one of Brazil's greatest saxophone players of the 60s and 70s, and an artist with a keen post-Coltrane approach to his work! The album's awash in modally grooving numbers that would have made Coltrane proud – soulfully swinging tunes ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Brazilian PopMusical Family ... CD
Essential, Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 14.99
A very groovy group who have way more to offer than the "pop" in their name might make you expect – a sweet jazzy take on bossa nova styles – definitely in the manner of Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66, but with a slightly more complicated approach as well! We'll be honest, we ... read more CD
