This CD adds in a nice batch of 9 outtakes from the session, to create a whopping double CD set of 19 tracks, which is one of ... read moreCD
A beautiful take on the compositions of Milton Nasicmento – performed by guitarist Ricardo Silveira and pianist Luiz Avellar.

BR3 ... CD EMI (Brazil), 1971. Used ...
Just Sold Out!
Funky soul from Toni Tornado – one of the first talents in Brazil's samba soul generation of the 70s! Toni's got a style that's a lot like early work by Tim Maia – a blend of American funk and soul, with traces of some of the other Brazilian arranging styles that were popular at the ... read moreCD

An incredible new album from Trio Mocoto – the legendary Brazilian funk group from the 70s! Unlike the group's first "comeback" album of a few years back – which was great, but kind of revisited familiar territory – this one seems to go in a whole new direction, really ... read moreCD
An insanely wonderful album that will always remain one of the all-time favorites of the Dusty Groove staff!

The general approach is west coast mellow – as the group features ... (Vocalists, Brazil)read moreCD
One of the weirdest, wildest albums Caetano Veloso ever recorded – a highly experimental session that shows that his ties with the avant art world were still plenty strong on his return to Brazil! Despite a goofy cheeseball photo of Veloso on the cover in a bikini, the sound on this one is ... read moreCD
An album of pure genius – easily one of the greatest Brazilian albums ever, and a landmark set from the Tropicalia years! There's a brilliance here that's hard to describe accurately – quite possibly because the young Caetano Veloso is experimenting with so many new ideas, the album ... read moreCD
Caetano Veloso at the end of the 70s – still sounding wonderful, but in ways that are quite different from his earliest albums! The sound here is more restrained, and more mature – a beautiful example of the songwriting strength that Veloso evolved as his career moved on – tunes ... read moreCD
Caetano Veloso —
Joia ... CD Polygram (Brazil), 1975. Used ...
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 moreCD
A lively album that mixes Caetano's rich songwriting style with a hard percussive base – a more grooving approach than usual – which gives the tracks a fast jumpy feel, and gives even more power to Caetano's strong vocals! There's some slight post-Tropicalia touches at time – a ... read moreCD
A double CD set – recorded live, featuring material from Caetano's tour for the Noites Do Norte album. Like that album, this set features many rootsy numbers – Caetano's always great vocals mixing with guitar and percussion, evoking the spirit of the north, and touching on a few other ... read moreCD
A wonderful album recorded by Caetano in Italy – one performed live as a tribute to Fredrico Fellini and his wife Giuletta! The tracks are a stunning mix of older Veloso originals, older bossa tunes, and wonderful Nino Rota tunes originally written for Fellini films. Veloso's voice is ... read moreCD
A fantastic live set from Caetano Veloso – done in a very spare style, like some of his best work of the time! The album's a great return to basics after use of a rock band on some of Veloso's previous records – and features just Caetano's magical vocals with solo guitar backing – ... read moreCD

Caetano Veloso & Gal Costa —
Domingo ... CD Polydor (Brazil), 1967. Used ...
Beautiful early duets from Caetano Veloso and Gal Costa – much more of a bossa-styled album than any of the late 60s Tropicalia albums from the pair! The set's got a really wonderful sort of feel – bossa at some level, but also with some of the gentle darkness that Caetano and Gal ... read moreCD
Marcus Viana/Carla Villar/Tavinho Moura —
Trindade ... CD Sonhos & Sons (Brazil), 2003. Used ...
One of our favorite albums ever from Walter Wanderley – a set that's much more complicated than his earlier trio records for Verve – and which really expands the sound with a host of added elements! Wanderley's core organ bossa groove is amplified wonderfully here with the addition of ... read moreCD
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 Winds of Brazil is a pretty heady little group – one that features work by Brazilian reed players Teco Cardoso, Vinicius Dorin, Lea Freire, Mauro Rodrigues, and Paulo Moura – all working here in a slightly-orchestral performance of Brazilian classics and original numbers!
