Bet.e & StefDay By Day ... LP
Bet.e & Stef Records/Return To Analog (Canada), 2002. New Copy 2LP ... $14.99
Magical work from this amazing duo – the lovely Bet.e & Stef, a Candian pair with a wonderful Brazilian sound, clearly destined for stardom! Imagine all the best bits of the 60s recordings by Astrud and Joao Gilberto, filtered through the best early work of Tracey Thorn or Sade, handled with a stripped-down indie sound – and you've still only got part of the picture! The CD's really great – a very fresh breath of air in a world of fake music, stepping out with an honest quality that's quite inspiring, and done with a depth of soul that shows that we're only at the beginning of the great music we'll be able to hear from this incredible pair! Titles include "Zana", "Il N'Aurait Fallu", "I'm There", "Vagabond", "Rega Tres", "Day By Day", "All Is Well", and "It's Over". LP, Vinyl record album

Bossa RioBossa Rio ... CD
A&M/Rev-Ola (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $6.99 13.99
A groovy bossa gem from the glory days of A&M Records – an ultra-hip group recorded with production by Sergio Mendes! The feel here is a lot like that of Brasil 66 – bossa rhythms, sunny CA instrumentation, and lovely female vocals – in this case sung singularly, by the lovely Gracinha Leporace – aka Mrs Mendes! Instrumentation is arguably even better than on Brasil 66 records – with wonderfully groovy organ lines from Manfredo Fest, who plays Lowrey organ instead of the usual Hammond. A really essential slice of bossa nova – and a record we'd never part with! Filled with wonderful tunes that include "Gentle Rain", "Up Up & Away", "Wave", "Do You Know The Way To San Jose", "Cacao do Sal", "Veleiro", "Saiupa", and "Nana". CD

Charlie ByrdOnce More – Charlie Byrd's Bossa Nova ... LP
Riverside, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A lovely little record from the man who helped Stan Getz find his bossa – and a set that's done with just a bit more backing than usual from Byrd for the time! The album makes nice use of additional percussion, vibes, cello, and a bit of flugelhorn to back up Byrd's work on acoustic guitar – never in a way that dominates too strongly, with just enough added sound to color in the grooves with a slightly deeper tone. Titles include "Presente De Natal", "Three Note Samba", "Limehouse Blues", "Cancao De Nimar Para Carol", "Chega De Saudade", and "Anna". (Jazz, Brazil) LP, Vinyl record album

Gilberto GilNightingale ... LP
Elektra, 1979. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A very nice album cut by Gilberto Gil in the US in the late 70s – one that features production by Sergio Mendes, and sound that's a strong mix of jazz, soul, and Brazilian grooves! The record kind of fits in with the Elektra modern soul work at the time – a smooth blend of jazz and soul, with distinct Latin touches – and has backing by American and Brazilian jazz players that include Lee Ritenour, Don Grusin, Roberto Da Silva, Alex Acuna, and Oscar Castro Neves. The record's one of Gilberto's nicest from the era, and includes lots of lovely cuts, like a remake of "Maracatu Atomico", plus "Alapala", "Here & Now", "Balafon", "Nightingale", and "Samba De Los Angeles". LP, Vinyl record album

Astrud GilbertoGilberto With Turrentine ... LP
CTI, 1971. Very Good Gatefold ... $18.99
Incredible 70s work from the lovely Astrud Gilberto – a rare effort for the CTI label that has her teaming up with arranger Eumir Deodato and saxophonist Stanley Turrentine – all in a groove that's totally different than most of her earlier work! Astrud's breathy vocals are still wonderfully intact – but they're given a more spacious approach in the arrangements – strings mixes with rolling basslines, soaring keyboards, and stone cold tenor from Stanley – in a groove that's simply wonderful, and which takes off in a whole new direction than before! Other players include Airto, Sivuca, Hubert Laws, and Dom Um Romao – and tracks include classic versions of "Ponteio", "Vera Cruz", and "Zazueira" that are all some of the most grooving takes on the tunes ever – plus "Historia De Amor", "Where There's A Heartache", "Brazilian Tapestry", and "Wanting Things".

Joao GilbertoJoao Gilberto (1963) (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Odeon/El (UK), 1963. New Copy ... $12.99
One of Joao Gilberto's first-ever albums – filled with incredibly beautiful bossa material that captures the vocals and guitar of Gilberto at their fragile early best – backed by sublime arrangements from Antonio Carlos Jobim and Walter Wanderley! The setting is perfect, and the sound is amazing – that incredible stripped-down breathy quality that made Joao a legend right out of the box – which so many others tried to copy over the years, but never got this right. A beautiful relic from the past – with a lovely image of Joao's young face on the cover – and titles that include "O Barquinho", "O Amor Em Paz", "Voce e Eu", "Coisa Mas Linda", and "Presente De Natal". CD features bonus tracks by some of Gilberto's contemporaries – including "O Barquinho" by Maysa, "Coisa Mais Linda" by Carlos Lyra, "Manha De Carnaval" by Sylvia Telles, "Bim Bom" by Oscar Castro Neves, and "O Samba Da Minha Terra" by Lucio Alves.

Guitars UnlimitedQuiet Nights & Brazilian Guitars ... LP
Capitol, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
An excellent concept for a bossa album from the 60s – a set that mixes together a bunch of different great guitarists – all with some light and lovely rhythm backings that really hit a groove! Jack Marshall put the set together – and in addition to his own guitar, the record features work from Howard Roberts, Bob Bain, Tommy Tedesco, Laurindo Almeida, and Rosinha De Valenca – all of whom would be plenty great on their own, but who really sound special here together on the set! Backings have a bit of that bounce you'd hear on some of Howard Roberts' albums for Capitol at the same time – and no surprise, Roberts is really the main soloist on the date. Titles include "Girl From Ipanema", "Manha De Carnival", "Meditacao", "Here Lies Love", "Ho-Ba-La-La", "Bim-Bom", "Desafinado", "Corcovado", "One Note Samba", "These Are The Ways Of Love", and "O Barquinho".

Joyce with Joao DonatoTudo Bonito ... CD
Rip Curl/Sony (Brazil), 2000. Used ... $9.99
A wonderful album from the lovely Joyce – one of her best of recent years! The record features Joyce working with bossa maestro Joao Donato – who plays acoustic and electric piano, sings, and helps Joyce with some of the arrangements – and the overall style of the album is very much in the vein of some of his most beautiful work. The set was with contributions from Brazilian jazz players like Paulo Moura, Gilson Peranzzetta, and Tutty Moreno – and Joyce is in fantastic form, singing and playing acoustic guitar with all the soulful passion of her best early recordings. The production is great, too – and the album has a rawer edge than some of Joyce's other work from the 90s – nicely stripped-down, with a rasp in both her vocals and the work of the other jazz players. Titles include "Bananeira", "Anos 30", "Drume Negrita", "Tudo Bonito", "Gala Tanta", "Falta De Ar", "Adolescensia", and "So Tinha De Ser Com Voce". CD

Nara LeaoAo Vivo Anos 60s/70s/80s (4CD set) ... CD
Discobertas (Brazil), 1965/1972/1978/1985. New Copy 4 CDs ... $38.99
Four rare slices of work from the lovely Nara Leao – unreleased live material from 1965 through 1985 – really showing the tremendous scope and development of her music! The first CD features a live concert from 1965 – definitely with some bossa elements in the mix, but also featuring a number of songs with Nara in that darker, moodier style that would showcase on her albums in coming years – where the acoustic guitar was used with much more force than more traditional bossa recordings. CD2 features a wonderful live set from 1972 – with a very hip small group that includes Paulo Moura on sax, Copinha on flute, and Dom Salvador on piano – a combo that brings lots of jazzy changes to Nara's music. CD3 has Nara with more traditional Brazilian instrumentation – working with support from Os Carioquinhas, who feature cavaqinho, bandolim, 7 string guitar, pandeiro, and other percussion. CD4 features Nara back to working mostly with acoustic guitar – a show from 1985, right at a time when Leao was going back to a bossa nova mode – which works especially well here on some longer medley tracks. Nara Leao has given us plenty of wonderful records over the years – but this overstuffed box set really adds a lot to her classic years! CD

Ana MazzottiAna Mazzotti (1977) ... LP
GTA/Far Out (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $18.99
One of two incredible albums from the lovely Ana Mazzotti – a 70s Brazilian singer who could effortlessly blend fusion and soul, Brazilian rhythms and funk – working here with plenty of help from Jose Roberto Bertrami of Azymuth! In fact, the record has a vibe that's a lot like the best early Azymuth music, although with vocals – hip rhythms, unusual inflections, and a great electrified version of older Brazilian styles – all topped by the warm, wonderful vocals of Mazzotti! The whole thing's wonderful – and titles include an amazing version of "Sou", a vocal take on the Azymuth tune "Agora Ou Nunca Mais", and the cuts "Em Acalanto", "Eta Samba Bom", "Bairro Negro", and the funky classic "Roda Mundo". Great great great! LP, Vinyl record album

Ana Mazzotti Records (Brazil), 1982. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A great live set by one of the best and most-overlooked Brazilian singers of the 70s! Ana's singing here with a tight little combo, and she backs herself up with some strong piano work, played in a style that perfectly aguments her lovely voice. The sound's sparer than on other albums, but the groove's tight and hard, and very lively. The set includes a great reworking of her classic groover "Roda Mundo", plus the cuts "Grand Chick", "O Causo", and "Perguntacao". LP, Vinyl record album

Vinicius De Moraes & Odette LaraVinicius & Odette Lara (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Elenco/Elemental (Spain), 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
A dream of a bossa session – the kind of cool, yet sophisticated session that made the 60s Elenco label so great! The album features vocals by the completely lovely Odette Lara – a blue-tinged singer who really gets at the melancholy in the music – which is superbly underscored by the lyrics of the great Vinicus De Moraes, who wrote the tunes in conjunction with guitarist Baden Powell – at a level that's as great as their other 60s work together! Backings are by the sublime Moacir Santos – who knows how to balance modern impulses, jazz, and a bossa groove – on titles that include "Astronauta", "Berimbau", "Seja Feliz", "Samba Preludio", "Deve Ser Amor", "E Hoje So", "Diexa", and "Alem Do Amor".

Really lovely guitar work from Paulinho Nogueira – a Brazilian musician who's got some deeper currents than the usual acoustic players of the 60s – with maybe some of the richer, more complicated elements that emerged in the style of Baden Powell after he moved to Europe! The set is solo guitar all the way through – and has lots of great elements that change from track to track – not just samba and bossa, but almost a painterly style of creation! Titles include "Sonho De Um Carnaval", "Preludio Da Menina So", "Historia De Pescadores", "Aruanda", "Cheganca", "Zambi", and "Momento". CD

Dream Music (Japan), 2014. New Copy ... $32.99
Lovely work from Lisa Ono – one of the first singers of the modern age to return to the genius of 60s bossa, and one of the few to keep getting it right over the years! Here, Lisa sings with studio help from Mario Adnet – that great contemporary bossa talent who's got a key ear for updating instrumentation without ever losing the charm of the past – keeping things live, spontaneous, and with just the right current of sadness – but all without ever just aping the styles of the 60s either. Lisa's voice is wonderful – maybe even better here than on her earlier records – and titles include "Upa Neguinho", "Roda", "Mas Que Nada", "O Cantador", "Lapinha", "Tim Dom Dom", "Sa Marina", "Bossa Na Praia", and "Chove Chuva".

Milestone, 1974. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
Pure vocal magic – featuring the lovely Flora Purim at the height of her California powers – working in a sublime mix of jazz, fusion, and Brazilian rhythms – a sound that she virtually invented! The group on the set is one of her greatest of the time – with players that include Joe Henderson, George Duke, and Stanley Clarke – coming together with some great Brazilian percussion from husband Airto. The tracks are tight and jazzy – and include "Light As A Feather", "Dr. Jive (parts 1 & 2)", "Butterfly Dreams", "Moon Dreams", and "Dindi". This is the stuff that virtually defined the Brazilian/American groove of the 70s – and it's still light years ahead of any of Flora's many imitators! LP, Vinyl record album

Milestone, 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $6.99
A classic batch of Bay Area Brazilian grooves – recorded in the sweet breezy electric style of the Fantasy studios, and featuring the vocals of the lovely Flora Purim in the lead! The session's got a great mix of Brazilian and American fusion players – including Airto (of course!), Ron Carter, George Duke, Egberto Gismonti, Alphonso Johnson, Robertinho Silva, Hermeto Pascoal, and Ndugu Leon Chancler. Pascoal's reed work is a very nice treat, especially over the warm keyboards of George Duke. Purim's voice is as wonderful as ever, and the album's got lots of nice numbers, like "Ina's Song", "Andei (I Walked)", "Time's Lie", and "Open Your Eyes You Can Fly". LP, Vinyl record album

RVV (Mexico), Late 60s. Very Good ... $24.99
Groovy bossa from Rozana – a Brazilian by birth, but working here in a rare Mexican session from the 60s – singing in Spanish, Portuguese, and English! The style's right up there with more familiar female bossa of the time – lightly jazzy backings that feature tight percussion, bits of guitar and organ, and some occasional added strings, such as you might find in the work of Astrud Gilberto – all to support Rozana's lovely vocals, which are themselves recorded with a nice use of echo on some of the more dramatic cuts! Titles include "Mas Que Nada", "Reza", "Voce", "Fly Me To The Moon", "A Sorrir", "O Galo", "Copacabana", "Tristeza", and versions of "A Banda" in both Spanish and Portuguese! LP, Vinyl record album

Sylvia TellesAmor De Gente Moca – Musicas De Antonio Carlos Jobim (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Odeon/El (UK), 1959. New Copy ... $3.99 13.99
A beautiful early showcase of the compositions of Antonio Carlos Jobim – and one of the best late 50s albums from the lovely Sylvia Telles! The album's got a wonderfully gentle feel – one that's a far cry from some of the more emotive female vocal work that had come from Brazil in the 50s – and although the sound isn't fully bossa nova, it's certainly a strong precursor of the genre – arranged by Maestro Gaya with orchestrations that are as floating and dreamy as the lyrics of the tunes! Sylvia's vocals haunt the tunes in a beautifully, echoey way – as strings, vibes, and piano slip in and out to widen up the sound – and titles include"Fotografia", "Janelas Abertas", "De Voce Eu Gosto", "Discussao", "Sem Voce", and "Canta Canta Mais". CD features lots of bonus tracks from Telles, too – 17 more tracks that include "Sucedeu Assim", "Foi A Noite", "Samba Torto", "Eu Preciso De Voce", "Corcovado", "Estrada Do Sol", "Eu Nao Existo Sem Voce", and "Se Fodos Fossem Iguais A Voce".

Vanilla (Italy), 1976. Very Good ... $4.99
A beautiful album of bossa tunes – recorded in Italy by the team of Toquinho and Vinicius De Moraes, with vocals by the lovely Ornelia Vanoni – an Italian singer who holds the sort of place usually reserved for Brazilian vocalists on other projects by the pair! Vanoni's presence on the record gives it a soft Italian edge, and the usual bossa arrangements are expanded by a larger group with a fuller sound. Vinicius' rough vocals are often juxtaposed with Ornelia's in a great style – and the record's filled with lots of nice tunes like "Samba In Preludio", "La Voglia La Pazzia", "Samba Della Rosa", "Semaforo Rosso", and "Io So Che Ti Amero".

Marcos ValleSamba '68 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Verve/Elemental (Spain), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
One of the grooviest Verve albums of all time – a rare American session from Brazilian legend Marcos Valle – and his only US album to feature vocals! The album's even dreamier than Valle's early bossa sides from Brazil – and the setting has some nice Verve-like touches from Deodato – who handled the arrangements, and brings a nicely airy, nicely jazzy style to the record. Most tunes are sung as duets with his lovely wife Anamaria – made famous by the album's landmark groover "Crickets Sing For Anamaria" – an English-language version of Valle's earlier "Os Grilos". Other titles are all great too – and sport English lyrics that hardly ever got much exposure. In addition to the great "Crickets Sing For Anamaria", other titles include "The Face I Love", "She Told Me She Told Me", "Pepino Beach", "Chup Chup I Got Away", and "Batucada".

Incredible early work from Joyce – the completely fantastic female singer who would go on to transform the sound of Brazilian music in the 70s, and have a huge global legacy for years to come! This set's got Joyce working with Nelson Angelo – a bandmate of the singer in the group A Tribo – and the pair write and perform songs with a vibe that's similar to her later work, but maybe a bit darker and moodier too! The music has an extremely haunting quality, and Angelo's presence adds a lot to Joyce's usual mix of lovely vocals and guitar playing – maybe pacing things out in a different way, with some rootsier elements reflected on the cover – but still handled with all the sophistication that we've really come to love from Joyce over the years. A gem throughout – and titles include "Tudo Comeca De Novo", "Sete Cachorros", "Um Gosto De Fruta", "Hotel Universo", "Ponte Nova", "Tiro Cruzado", and "Mantra". LP, Vinyl record album

Gilberto plays guitar on all tracks, and Jorge Ben makes a guest appearance too – but the record is definitely Robert's own all the way through, and has this lovely mix of breezy vocals and acoustic guitar, often with a jazzy vibe – almost in the territory of some of the classic earlier work by Joyce!

A late 60s gem from Doris Monteiro – done in a quirky post-bossa approach that's really great! The style here has that great blend of groovy, easy, bossa, and breezy that characterized the high years of the EMI/Odeon sound in Brazil – spearheaded by maestro Lyrio Panicalli, with a sound that uses full arrangements, but which somehow manages to make them glide with effortless ease – into a light, lovely, lyrical accompaniment that's perfect for Doris' voice! Titles include "Garoto Paissandu", "Lembrando O Dia", "Vai Ver", "Nem Num Talvez", and "Vou Te Contar" – all of which make for a great little set that goes wap past the usual batch of bossa standards!

The first album by Joyce – one of our favorite Brazilian singers ever! The album's a wonderfully lyrical batch of tracks – many written by Joyce herself, plus a few by Brazilian songwriters Jards Macale, Toninho Horta, and Marcos Valle – and the orchestrations are by Gaya, and played on a number of tracks by Dori Caymmi and his group. The style shows many elements of Joyce's later unique style, filtered through a more standard late bossa sound – light and breezy, but with a bit of a dark edge that's in a classic Jobim mode. Includes the track "Superego", which feels a lot like Joyce from the 70s – plus the lovely "Litoral", and the tracks "Me Disseram", "Nao Muda, Nao", "Cantiga De Procura", "Choro Chorado", "Bloco Do Eu Sozinho", and "Improvisado".

Both artists play acoustic guitar, trading lines of rhythm and melody back and forth in a great way – and both artists sing, too, with some especially nice moments from Joyce.

The poet produced the set, and arrangements are by Edu Lobo and Chiquinho De Moraes – who both bring in this warmly sophisticated style that really makes things interesting – charts handled with that special care that Edu always had for his best work – with a blend of fullness in the setting, but never in a way that overwhelms the vocals. Medalha's got this well-paced, sometimes spacious approach to the music that really opens up the tunes – and titles include "Mr Toquinho", "Se O Amor Pudesse", "Moinho D'Agua", "Algum Lugar", "Ausencia", "Sagarana", "Meu Tempo", and "Distante".

Ritmos Codil/Discobertas (Brazil), 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A rare bossa classic! Quarteto 004 is a super-hip group with a sound that mixes classic late 60s bossa instrumentation with some sweetly complex harmonies. If pushed to make a comparison, we might say the style is a bit similar to Tamba Trio, but the Quarteto 004 vocals are slyly complex in a way that pushes the boundaries of the genre without compromising on the lovely harmonies. The whole thing's soaring and beautiful – right up there with the best of the best mid 60s bossa albums – with some subtly adventurous late 60s stylistic touches. Jobim had a hand in a lot of the arrangements, too, and titles include "Viagem", "E Tarde", "Cancao Do Encontro", "Retrato Em Branco E Preto", "Bom Tempo", "Vou Te Contar", "Samba Do Perdao", and "Moca". CD has 4 bonus tracks, too: "Segue Cantando", "Lapinha", "Passacalha" and "Danca Da Rosa". CD

CBS/Polysom (Brazil), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A wonderfully wild album – every bit as much as you'd guess from the cover – by a group that provided an early showcase for the talents of Raul Seixas and Sergio Sampaio – both artists who'd later have a big impact on Brazilian music in the 70s! The cover might look as trippy as a Tropicalia album, but these guys are maybe lightly looser overall – still with a talent for mixing together odd and offbeat elements, often with a nice degree of wit – but also groovy enough to make some of their songs swing nicely, with a very catchy vibe! The group also features the lovely Miriam Batucada and Edy – who both get a chance to sing too – and titles include "Eta Vida", "Quero Ir", "Eu Acho Graca", "Sessao Das 10", "Dr Paxeco", "Finale", "Todo Mondo Esta Feliz", and a great version of the Antonio Carlos E Jocafi tune "Soul Tabaroa".
