Beautiful airy bossa! This album's a 1964 session of straight piano bossa tracks by Deodato, with production by Roberto Quartin – and a sound that's a lot more mellow and fragile than his other records from the time! Deodato is amazingly restrained in his playing, and sticks to only piano ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Later pressing from 1978. Cover has a light crease.)
Amazing live work from this Brazilian samba legend – and a set that features killer guest work from Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Beth Carvalho, Zeca Pagodinho, and others! Although Dona Ivone Lara's been recording for many years, the passage of time has only seemed to deepen her sense of ... read moreCD
Joao & His Bossa Kings (aka JT Meirelles) —
Cool Samba ... LP Battle, Early 60s. Very Good- ...
A very nice album of bossa instrumentals, released in the US under the obscure name of "Joao & His Bossa Kings". Joao is listed on the label as Joao Meirelles – also known as JT Meirelles on his more famous Brazilian recordings – and we wonder if Battle gave him the name ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Red label pressing, with deep groove. Cover has some water damage near the bottom seam.)
Antonio Carlos Jobim —
Wave ... CD CTI/A&M, 1967. Used ...
Just Sold Out!
A stunning mix of talents that brings the heavenly piano and guitar of Antonio Carlos Jobim into play with the lush, but light arrangements of Claus Ogerman – a swirling mix of post-bossa loveliness that redefines Jobim's sound, and opens up new avenues for exploration in sound! The ... read moreCD
One of the greatest soundtracks ever – a record that set a whole new standard for audio representation of a film! The mad music for the set was composed by Antonio Carlos Jobim, with lyrics by Vincius De Moraes – and performed by Luiz Bonfa on guitar – but despite such prime ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Original yellow label Epic pressing. Cover has some wear, a small split on the bottom seam, and some pen on back.)
Dreamy bossa pop from the A&M studios of the 60s – the Brasil 66 sound at its best! The style here is a perfect blend of real Brazilian influences and some of the hipper styles bubbling in the LA studio scene of the time – all locked together perfectly by Sergio Mendes, in the twin- ... read moreCD
The most interesting album we've ever heard from Daniela Mercury – an "electric carnival", recorded with help from Gilberto Gil, Carlinhos Brown, Lenine, and a host of guest DJs! In keeping with the title, the music on the set is kind of a remix-styled version of the traditional ... read moreCD
Great session cut by Milton in the US, with a feel that's similar to Courage, his other great US/A&M album, done in the late 60s. The sound here's a bit more modern than that one, and the group is graced by some excellent guests, like Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Airto, Raul De Souza, and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout hole, light wear, a factory sticker on front, and small promo sticker on back.)
Dom La Nena —
Soyo ... CD Six Degrees, 2015. New Copy ...
Really lovely work from Dom La Nena, a singer who already won us over with her debut, but really captivates us here on her second set! The music has this personal, almost private style that echoes the image on the cover – spare, subtle tunes recorded in Lisbon and Paris – with an ... read moreCD
Os Paralamas Do Sucesso —
Bora Bora ... CD Capitol/Intuition, 1989. Used ...
One of the greatest collections of work we've ever seen from Quarteto Em Cy – a CD that features their entire Som Definitivo album from 1964, plus 18 more bonus tracks pulled from two other albums! Som Definitivo is an incredible album – one in which the Brazilian female harmony ... read moreCD
2 CD set that compiles some of the now out of print recordings of this popular female Brazilian singer. The set's not totally complete, but it's nicely priced, and it will give you 28 tracks that aren't that easily available. Titles include "De Frente Pro Crime", "Medo De Amar No ... read moreCD
