Nara LeaoAbracos E Beijinhos E Carinhos Sem Ter Fim ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1984. New Copy ... $13.99
Nara Leao recorded some incredible albums at the end of the 60s in Brazil – and she returned to greatness in the 80s with records like this – done with a different sound that really marked a strong second chapter in the singer's career! The record features a fair bit of bossa nova classics, but updated instrumentally by arranger Roberto Menescal – still light and lovely, but with slight contemporary elements in the instrumentation – balanced by that very unique way that Nara has of singing – almost the depth of a great European singer, but with a Brazilian sense of balance that never bogs things down at all. A really lovely record – with titles that include "Wave", "Sublime Tortura", "Ate Quem Sabe", "Eu Preciso De Voce", "La Vem Voce", "Voce E Eu", "Telefone", and "Sabe Voce". CD

Nara LeaoCoisas Do Mundo ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $13.99
Quite a different album than Nara Leao's other record from 1969 – the one produced by Rogerio Duprat! This one's much sparer and rootsier – almost in a samba mode at times – but even more so in a slightly folksy style that puts Nara's vocals highly upfront in the mix, supported by just a bit of percussion and guitar – in a way that's darker and without the sweetness of her earlier albums, and which has some of the careful presentation and sly interplay that made Leao a surprising force in the Tropicalia generation. Arrangements are by Sidney Miller, with all the depth of his own 60s work – and titles include "La Columbe", "Apanhei-Te Cavaquinho", "Poema Da Rosa", "Little Boxes", "Azulao", "Tambores Da Paz", "Parabien De La Paloma", "Fez Bobagem", and a great version of Caetano Veloso's "Atras Do Trio Eletrico".

Nara LeaoManha De Liberdade (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... $13.99
A beautiful early gem from Nara Leao! This one has a similar feel to her classic O Canto Livre album – in that it's got a deeper approach than some of her bossa work, with a mix of some of the more complicated, slightly folksy styles used by singers like Geraldo Vandre or Chico Buarque De Hollanda. The sound is wonderfully dark – a moodier approach to the music than used by some of Nara's contemporaries – without any of the sweeter styles you'd get from other Brazilian female singers of the 60s. Titles include Nara's great single "A Banda", plus "Favela", "Funeral De Lavrador", "Cancao Do Bicho", "Faz Escuro Mas Eu Canto", "Ladainha", and "Ana Vai Ambora". Arrangements by Geni Marcondes – and a great cover! CD features 2 bonus tracks – "Funeral De Um Lavrador (French)" and "Diz Que Fui Por Ai (live)". CD

Nara LeaoMeus Sonhos Dourados ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1987. New Copy ... $13.99
A great one from Nara Leao's "back to bossa" years in the late 80s – a set that has the lovely vocalist working through older American standards – but done here with new lyrics in Portuguese and some great bossa backings from Roberto Menescal! Menescal's airy style proved to be a perfect fit for Nara at this point, and the record's made even better by some guest work from Mauricio Einhorn on harmonica – blowing those blue-tinged notes that always helps to underscore the music with an extra hint of sadness. Titles include "Jamais (The Boy Next Door)", "Coisa Que Lembram Voce (These Foolish Things)", "Como Vai Voce? (What's New?)", and "Garoto Levado (Lullaby Of Birdland)". CD

Nara LeaoNara (1964) ... CD
Elenco/Universal (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $13.99
Incredible early bossa material from one of Brazil's greatest singers! The record is lively, yet sophisticated – with strong arrangements by Gaya and Moacir Santos, and a vocal approach by Nana that really moves past the sweeter sound of other bossa singers – into a mode that's rich with feeling, without sounding too overwrought or overemotional – in sharp contrast to the style of Brazilian divas from a few years before. Includes a wonderful version of Santos' "Nana", plus the tracks "Cancao Da Terra", "Consolacao", "Maria Moita", and "Berimbau" – all done in great edgey versions. Beautiful cover, too! CD

Nara LeaoNara (1967) (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the loveliest of all the bossa singers is caught here in some superb arrangements by Oscar Castro-Neves! The set's got a wonderful feel – with moments that are rootsier than your average bossa diva record, and others that are baroque enough to hint at the direction Nara would take a year later with Rogerio Duprat. Production is excellent, and Edu Lobo even guests on the track "De Onde Vens". Other tracks include "Lancha Nova", "Inspiracao", "No Corado Da Saideira", "Camisa Amarela", and "Se Voce Quiser Saber". Fantastic cover, too! This edition also features two bonus tracks as well. CD

Nara LeaoNara Leao – Serie Sem Limite ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 1960s/1970s/Early 80s. Used 2 CDs ... $19.99
From the bossa years, to the Tropicalia generation, to the MPB hit days of the 70s, and even up into the 80s – Nara Leao has always been one of Brazil's most compelling singers, as you'll hear on this well-selected batch of 30 tracks pulled from her classic recordings for Philips and Elenco. The package includes many hard to find numbers, and it's a great overview of Nara's work with a strong focus on the early days. Titles include "Carcara", "A Rita", "A Banda", "Amor Nas Estrelas", "Camisa Amarela", "Telefone", "Diz Que Fui Por Ai", "Cantores De Radio", "Wave", "Opinao", "Lindoneia", and "Com Acucar, Com Afeto".

Nara LeaoNara Pede Passagem (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... $13.99
An amazing early album by Nara Leao – one that features mostly spare vocals and acoustic guitar, plus some additional percussion – coming off in a style that's halfway between the best 60s work of Geraldo Vandre and early albums by Joyce! Nara's vocals are incredible – really haunting and dark, with a sad quality that sets her apart from most of her contemporaries, and a righteous presentation of the material that makes her come off as way more than just a pop singer. Titles include "Amo Tanto", "Recado", "Palmares", "Ole Ola", "Pede Passagem", and "Pedro Pedreiro". Also features 2 bonus tracks – French versions of "Opiniao" and "Acender As Velas". CD

✨✧ Nara LeaoO Canto Livre De Nara (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1965. Used ... $24.99
Incredible early work by Nara Leao – some of the most groundbreaking vocals of the bossa era! The arrangements are by Luiz Eca, pianist of the Tamba Trio – and backing is by a small group that includes Eca, Dori Caymmi, and other jazz-tinged players. The overall quality of the backings sounds a lot more like an album recorded five years after the mid 60s – and Nara's mix of bohemian hip and honest bossa sincerity really makes the tracks sparkle wonderfully. Titles include "Samba Da Legalidade", "Canto Livre", "Corisco", "Carcara", "Aleluia", "Incelenca", and "Suite Dos Pescadores". CD also features 2 bonus tracks – Spanish versions of "Carcara" and "Nao Me Diga Adeus". CD

Nara LeaoOpiniao De Nara (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $13.99
Beautiful work from the incredible Nara Leao – a record that's lightly driven by the bossa, but with some sadder and darker touches that really set the sound apart! Backings on most tracks are simply spare percussion, and an acoustic guitar follows Nara's vocals as they dart in and out of the shadows – giving the record the moody feel of some of Baden Powell's best late 60s work, but with a slightly lighter feel overall – thanks to Nara's vocals. There's a great undercurrent of melancholy throughout – but one that doesn't overwhelm the record, as on some of the too-emotive sides by Brazilian divas of a few years before – and overall, the whole thing is an amazing balance of styles that comes off perfectly! Titles include "Mal Me Quer", "Labareda", "Esse Mundo E Meu", "Opiniao", "Acender As Velas", and "Sina De Caboclo". CD also features 2 bonus tracks – Spanish versions of "Opiniao" and "Acender As Velas". CD

Nara LeaoVento De Maio (with bonus track) ... CD
Universal (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $13.99
A lovely early album by the great Nara Leao! The record is from the key year of 1967, when Nara cut some of her most fantastic early work – and the set list features some of the more sophisticated tunes of her earlier sessions – tracks that mix up up samba, bossa, and tracks in other styles, all set to arrangements by Gaya and Dori Caymmi! The music's not as dark as the work on her albums from a few years later, but it's still got an eerie quality that separates it from the work of other singers of her generation – a very unique balance that really sets Nara apart! Titles include "O Circo", "Passa, Passa, Gaviao", "A Praca", "Maria Joana", and "Noite Dos Mascarados". CD

Maria BethaniaA Tua Presenca ... LP
Philips/Universal (Brazil), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $54.99 79.99
Wonderful early work from Maria Bethania – an album that's put together with a very sophisticated sound, and a really powerful feel overall! The orchestrations are relatively baroque – sometimes using strings in odd ways, other times bringing in bits of voices – all very much in keeping with the genius that was brewing at the time in albums by Gal Costa or Nara Leao. And oddly, the backings for the album are not credited at all – save possibly to Manoel Barenbein, who's listed as the director of the production – and we're guessing that Maria had a good deal to do with the overall sound of the set, not just the vocals! Titles include a wonderful groover called "Mano Caetano", done as a duet with Jorge Ben, and very much in Ben's best style from the time – and other tracks include "Janelas Abertas No 2", "Jesus Cristo", "Que Me Dera", "Folha Morta", "Mariana, Mariana", and "A Tua Presenca Morena".

Tom Jobim, Vinicius De Moraes, & OthersGarota De Ipanema ... CD
Universal (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $13.99
A stunning lost bossa nova soundtrack! The score was penned for the 1967 film Garota De Ipanema (Girl From Ipanema), and although you've heard some of the tracks before in other versions, the overall album is very nice – and is a wonderful tribute to the early days of bossa nova! Jobim and Vinicius perform, as well as Baden Powell, Tamba Trio, Nara Leao, Elis Regina, Ronnie Von, Chico Buarque, and Quarteto Em Cy – and titles include "Por Voce", "Chorino", "Aria Para Se Morrer De Amor", "Rancho Das Namoradas", and "Tema Da Desilusao". We think some of the material might have popped up on otheralbums from time to time, but there's still enough stuff here that we hadn't heard elsewhere – and that we like a lot! CD

A landmark album – not just in Brazilian music, but in all modern music in general! The set's a legendary manifesto for the Tropicalia movement in Brazil – and features key works by all the leading musical luminaries in the movement – including a few later stars who are heard here at their most edgey!
