Maria Bethania/Caetano Veloso/Novos Baianos/Tom Ze —
Gala 79 ... LP Sigia (Brazil), 1979. Very Good ...
A better-than-usual set of live tracks – recorded at a festival in 1979, and featuring some really great moments! Tom Ze checks in with some of the best work on the set – a moody and electric version of "Irene", a sad and spare tune called "Qualquer Bobagem", and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Sanfona ... LP ECM, 1981. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ...
Just Sold Out!
One of Gismonti's straighter jazz albums, but one that's still filled with a lot of fantastically conceived turns and changes, in the manner of his best compositions. This is a 2LP set, with 1 album of performances by a quartet that includes Mauro Senise on reeds and Zeca Assumpacao on bass. The ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Incredible work from Luiz Henrique – one of our favorite singers of the 60s bossa era, heard here with some completely sublime arrangements! Luiz has a bit more jazz in his voice than some of his contemporaries – a great ability to sing both regular lyrics and wordless scatting – ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A breezy bossa classic from Jobim – recorded in LA, in case you couldn't tell from the cover image that has ol' AC standing with his guitar in a Pacific sunset!

A mixture of bossa tunes and other titles that have a more flowery, more emotional pop approach to them. Maysa's vocals are still quite strong, though, and the best cuts have lightly crafted arrangements that breeze along better than the others. Titles include "Raizes", "Chorou ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An amazing album of icy Brazilian jazz and sweet electric funk! Singer Ana Mazzotti is at the head of the session – singing with this breezy style that's at once cold and warm, cool and emotive – and she's backed by a small jazz combo with some incredible moog, Arp, and organ from Jose ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A stunning cover – even trippier than the group's music! LP, Vinyl record album
Tocando ... LP Philips (Brazil), 1977. Very Good ...
A nice little solo record from guitarist Toquino – featuring a number of excellent original compositions, most of which are spare guitar instrumentals, with occasional other backing on sax or strings. Titles include "Caro Raul", "Regra Tres", "Suite Argentina", ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Caetano Veloso —
Joia ... LP Philips (Brazil), 1975. Very Good ...
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 moreLP, Vinyl record album
