Edu Lobo with The Tamba TrioEdu Lobo Por Edu Lobo ... CD
Elenco/Polygram (Brazil), 1965. Used ... $14.99
One of the greatest early albums from Edu Lobo – a groundbreaking set that has Lobo's vocals and guitar backed with sublime sounds from the Tamba Trio! As on their own records, the Tamba Trio harmonize wonderfully – letting Edu's vocals take the lead, but supporting him with those heavenly, airy tones that we totally love. The trio also provides instrumental backing too – a blend of bossa piano, bass, and drums – used strongly to emphasize the best moments in Lobo's compositions, in ways that hint at some of the more baroque turns his music would take in the 70s. There's a mix of ambitious sound and personal expression here that's simply breathtaking – and the album still features some of the best readings ever of Lobo tunes like "Boranda", "Reza", "Cheganca", and "Zambi". Other titles include "Em Tempo De Adues", "Cancao Do Amanhecer", "Requiem Para Amor", and "Cancao Da Terra". CD

Tamba TrioAvanco ... LP
Philips (Brazil), Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $24.99
A seminal set from one of the greatest bossa combos ever – a group who could boast sharp instrumentation and warm vocal harmonies too! The mix of sounds is completely sublime – jazzy piano trio sounds at the core, topped by soaring harmonies from the members of the trio – a combination the group pioneered with this legendary album – and helped set a whole new standard for the bossa nova generation! Luiz Eca heads up the group on arrangements and piano – with percussion from Helcio Milito, bass and reeds from Bebeto, and just a bit of guest guitar from Durval Ferreira – on killer cuts that include "Batucada", "Sonho De Maria", "Mas Que Nada", "Moca Flor", "O Samba Da Minha Terra", and "Rio". LP, Vinyl record album
(90s reissue pressing. Includes bonus track "Barricada".)

Tamba TrioTamba Trio (1962) ... CD
Polygram (Japan), 1962. Used ... $18.99
The first-ever album from the legendary Tamba Trio – and the start of an amazing 60s run that really set them apart from other bossa combos of the time! The group hits hard right out of the box with the amazing piano of Luiz Eca and sublime vocal harmonies sung by all three members of the group – scatting along wordlessly with the tunes in a really haunting way! Drumming by Helcio Milito is incredibly tight – almost the blueprint for snapping bossa rhythms – and the whole album is produced to perfection with a sound that's dark and light at the same time. The sound is stunning, the playing is tight, and the tracks groove like nothing you could imagine! Cuts include "Tamba", "Samba Novo", "O Barquinho", "Influencia Do Jazz", "Batida Differente", and "Quem Quizer Encontrar O Amor". CD

Tamba TrioTempo/Avanco ... CD
Philips (Japan), Mid 60s. Used ... $19.99
2 of the best-ever albums by the Tamba Trio – out now on one CD! The records are a fantastic mix of vocal harmonies and bossa piano grooves, with a sound that's unlike anything else you've ever heard – unless you've heard some of the Tamba Trio's other excellent records! Luiz Eca leads the group on piano, and his arrangements of tracks like "Boranda", "Rio", "Esperanca", "Sonho De Maria", "Vento Do Mar", "Barumba", and "Consalacao" will leave you speechless! Great stuff, with 24 cuts in all, and a very nice cover, too! CD

✨✧ Tamba TrioTamba Tamba Tamba (Tamba Trio 1966) ... LP
Philips (Brazil), 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best-ever records by the Tamba Trio! This one has the group moving past their simple bossa roots into an amazingly sophisticated blend of voice and piano grooves, all put together by the genius arranger Luiz Eca, who also plays all the piano on the album. The record's a perfect piece of baroque pop – and is proof that the Brazilian music industry of the 60s was light years ahead of the American one! Titles include "Minha", "Procissao", "Veleiro", "Sem Mais Adeus", "Que Me Dera", and "Pra Dizer Adeus". LP, Vinyl record album
(90s reissue pressing. PLEASE NOTE: For some strange reason, this reissue omits the track "Canto De Ossanha", which was on the original LP, and is still listed on the label and cover!)

✨✧ Tamba TrioTamba Trio (1975) ... LP
RCA (Brazil), 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A mid 70s gem from the Tamba Trio! The record takes their core 60s sound of piano trio grooving and bossa harmony vocals, and gives it a strong 70s twist – with mellow production that flanges the style out a bit more, and arrangements that add in some extra instrumentation from the likes of Helio Delmiro, Ivan Lins, Toninho Horta, Danilo Caymmi, and Joao Bosco – each of whom play a bit of guitar on the record, the last of whom also sings a bit of guest vocals too! Luiz Eca handled the arrangements, all with that subtle sense of sophistication that we've always loved in the group – even more mature here than in the 60s, and with a sound that's totally great. Titles include "3 Horas Da Manha", "Visgo De Jaca", "Beira Mar", "Chorinho No 1", "Jogo Da Vida", "Sanguessuga", and "Beijo Partido". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has one slightly bumped bottom corner, but this is a nice copy overall!)

✨✧ Tamba TrioTamba – Luiz Eca/Bebeto/Helcio Milito ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A sublime 70s groover from the great Tamba Trio! This one works off of the expanded sound that the bossa jazz combo were forging on their late 60s work for CTI – adding in some more complicated arrangements by Luiz Eca to the regular piano/bass/percussion groove, pushing the sound into a more complicated style that reminds us of the best 70s work of Edu Lobo! The tracks are wonderfully written – with a jazzy rhythm at the core of most of them – but the added washes of sound and color really flesh out the group's unique vision, and make the album one of their greatest ever! Titles include "Reflexos", "Mestre Bimba", "Ossaim", "Em Casa", "Morada", "Infinito", "Gazera", and "Nao Tem Nada Nao". CD

Jongo TrioJongo Trio (1972) ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Brazil), 1972. New Copy ... $3.99
The rare second album by the Jongo Trio – a fantastic bossa group who mixed together vocals and keyboards with stunning magic! The trio's approach is similar to that of the more famous Tamba Trio – in that the three members groove on keyboards, bass, and percussion – while also harmonizing vocals in a soaring, airy style that really adds a lot to the set. This album's got the group using a bit of organ and electric piano in addition to their usual acoustic keys – making for a bossa style that's slightly electrified, with great results on the album's overall sound. The set includes a really great uptempo version of "Aguas De Marco", plus the tracks "Alo Feveiro", "Quem Vem La", "Cavaleiro De Aruanda", "Sandalia De Prata", "Bate Barriga", "Feitinha P'Ro Poeta", and "Duas Contas".

✨✧ Samba TrioSamba Pra Frente ... CD
Paladium/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
One of the more obscure bossa jazz sets of the 60s – played by the lively little Samba Trio, a group who definitely live up to their name! Don't mix these guys up with the early 80s combo from Europe – as this group plays with a hard-edge groove that's heavy on romping piano lines and snapping snare – in a mode that's like more famous 60s recordings from Brazilian groups like Milton Banana Trio or Tamba Trio! And like the latter, they also harmonize a bit with their instrumentation – not on every track, but at key moments that really give the record a wonderfully moody sound. Plus, their sense of color and tone is wonderful – extremely evocative, doing a heck of a lot with just a little – in the true bossa spirit! Titles include "Arrasto", "Nana", "So Tinha De Ser Com Voce", "Canto De Ossanha", "Preciso Aprender A Ser So", "Noa Noa", and "Reza". CD

Balona E Seu ConjuntoGarota De Ipanema ... CD
Paladium/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $23.99
A rare one from 60s Brazil – and a really great small combo bossa session with some very unusual instrumentation! At their core, the Balona group seem to be a bossa piano trio – but many tracks here have a little "something else" – vibes, electric guitar, or trumpet – often used sparingly but with enough punch to really help shade in the sound of the tunes, even with a few jagged notes. A few numbers have harmony vocals – ala Tamba Trio, but perhaps a bit less modern – and the overall sound is pretty darn great! Titles include "Balonadas", "Aurora", "Meu Balanco", "Balanco 67", "Insensatez", "Tema Para Dois", "Vem Menina", "Duas Contas", and "Ceu E Mar". CD

Milton NascimentoMilton Nascimento (1969) ... LP
EMI (Brazil), 1969. Near Mint- ... $49.99
Maybe one of the first truly brilliant albums from Milton Nascimento – a set that builds on the excellent previous work by the singer/songwriter, but which also has him moving into much more soulful territory as well! Nascimento's work is one of the true treasures of Brazilian music of the past 50 years – and here, it finds a perfect place between larger arrangements, jazzy inflections, and some earthier instrumental touches that keep him tied to the earth – a really careful balance of modes that Milton would not only explore more deeply on key albums to come, but which would become a touchstone for a whole generation of artists as well. The arrangements are wonderful – done by Luiz Eca (of Tamba Trio fame) and saxophonist Paulo Moura – and songs include originals by Milton, plus titles by Dori Cayammi, Toninho Horta, Fernando Brant, and Marcio Borges. Titles include "Sentinela", "Tarde", "Pai Grande", "Quatro Luas", and "Sunset Marquis 333 Los Angeles". LP, Vinyl record album
(Second pressing. In really beautiful shape – save for one very slightly bumped bottom corner of the cover.)

Quarteto Em CyAleluia 1964 to 1966 (Som Definitivo plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Elenco/El (UK), 1964/1966. New Copy ... $13.99
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 quartet meets up with their male counterparts, the Tamba Trio! The gals have most of the vocals on this set, but backings are in the sublimely modern mode that the Tamba combo was using at the time, set to arrangements by Luiz Eca, the group's pianist – and soaring with a great blend of jazz and bossa elements! The whole thing's a landmark in the Brazilian scene of the time – with edges that are dark and sweet at the same time – and a depth of sound that's really tremendous. Titles include "O Mar E Meu Chao", "Se Voce Pensar", "Imagem", "Zambi", "Arrastao", and "Vim Da Bahia". Bonus tracks on the set are pulled from the 1964 and 1966 albums titled Quarteto Em Cy – also issued on Elenco – and titles include "O Trem", "Barravento", "Nana", "Vida Ruim", "Mascarada", "Resolucao", "Caminho Do Mar", "Canto De Ossanha", "Samba Torto", "Ate Londres", and "Pedro Pedreiro".

Kunihiko SuganoOpa Brazil ... CD
Trio/Solid (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... About March 22, 2017
A really groovy album from pianist Kunihiko Sugano – a set that has the leader working on Fender Rhodes, but often with a touch that has the sharpness of an acoustic piano – which is then underscored by some strong use of acoustic percussion as well! The album's definitely got the bossa flavor promised in the title – kind of a post-bossa version of the bossa jazz trio style of the 60s – a bit like the records that Tamba Trio and Milton Banana were cutting in the 70s, but maybe even better overall! The percussionists are all great – the album features five of them, all Brazilian – and they work alongside bassist Toni Botero and drummer Elis Siabo. Titles include "Samba Medley", "Mood Island", "UFO", "Midnight Sun Never Set", and "Diane". CD

Paul Winter with Luiz Bonfa & Roberto MenescalRio ... CD
Columbia (Japan), Mid 60s. Used ... $16.99
This bossa LP on Columbia is pretty good stuff! The record was recorded with some of Brazil's best bossa players – like Luiz Bonfa, Roberto Menescal, and Luiz Eca (of Tamba Trio fame). John Hammond produced the session, so you can be sure it's got the kind of rootsy sound that will make the tracks have a bit more kick than if the album was in the hands of a regular pop-bossa producer. Titles include "Avion", "Reza", "Vagamente", "Ela E Carioca", "Zomba", and "Alem Da Imaginacao". CD

VariousBossa Nova - Sua Historia Sua Gente ... CD
Polygram (Brazil), 1960s. Used 2CD ... $33.99
Great 2 CD set that features a motherlode of rare early bossa nova tracks from the Philips catalog. 36 tracks in all, with an endless list of stuff that you'll never find by Nara Leao, Joao Donato, MPB-4, Quarteto Em Cy, Sergio Mendes, Roberto Menescal, Luiz Eca, Tamba Trio, and sooo many others. Originally put together as a double album in 1975, but reissued a few years ago on CD. Great stuff, and an excellent set of material that provides a full historical scope of the bossa moment in Brazil – from jazzy combos to vocal groups to divas like Leny Andrade. It's all here, in one nice set! CD

✨✧ Miguel AngelSamba Na Onda ... CD
Equipe/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An upbeat groover from 60s Brazil – a highly percussive album that features work by Wilson Das Neves and Rubens Bassini – plus some excellent chorus vocals too! The whole thing's maybe a bit more of a hard-driving example of the Brazilian harmony mode heard from bigger groups like Tamba Trio or Os Cariocas – served up with a very strong instrumental current that includes heavy piano from the leader, and some great guitar lines from Neco – who you might know from classic albums of his own! The mix is great, and very strong – and makes for an album that bristles with electricity on every groove – on titles that include "Lagrima Flor", "Telefone", "Da Bola", "Deixa Isso Pra La", "Isto E Samba", "Consolacao", "Roda De Samba", and "Bate A Palma".

✨✧ Os GatosOs Gatos ... LP
Philips (Brazil), Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An album of incomparable beauty – one of the two rare albums cut by this legendary group during the 60s, and a bossa nova masterpiece all the way through! The work is guided by a young Deodato – who's moving here into much more complicated territory than his early organ jazz records – a spacious sort of sound that really marks him as one of the most inventive talents of the mid 60s bossa era! The arrangements are light, and spacious – and leave plenty of room for individual voices to float through the mix – including key piano, saxophone, or trombone passages, plus some occasional harmony vocals – which resonate with the force of work by Tamba Trio at times. The whole thing's fantastic – and titles include "Nuvens", "Sambidu", "A Chuva", "O Show E O Meu Rio", "Novo Sol", and "Razao De Viver". LP, Vinyl record album

Motor (Germany), 1998. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
If you've been looking for a compilation that will be an excellent introduction to bossa nova – this is it! The folks at Motor Music have put together this monster set of 50 tracks on 2CDs, and it spans a total of 40 years of bossa nova (although nearly all of the material is from the classic years!) There's not a huge amount of rare stuff on here, but the tracks that are included were chosen with great care, and represent an excellent primer in the bossa nova style. Futhermore, there's great little notes on each track, with a good explanation of how the songs fit into the larger history of bossa nova. There's way too much here to mention completely, but the CD set includes material by Edu Lobo, Os Gatos, Joao Donato, Astrud Gilberto, Marcos Valle, Nara Leao, Os Namorados, Tamba Trio, Os Cariocas, Luiz Carlos Vinhas, Marcia, Luiz Bonfa, Pele, Quincy Jones, Meirelles, and lots of others!

✨✧ VariousAmazing Bossa Nova – Journey To Rio De Janeiro ... CD
Universal (Japan), 1960s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
The title certainly gets things right – as the 2CD collection is filled with amazing bossa nova tunes – mostly from the classic 60s years of the genre, with a few sweet bits from later years too! The set's got 36 tracks split into two different "themed" discs – one titled On The Beach, with tunes that are perfect for a sunny summer afternoon in the sand – the other titled On The Hill, showing some of the more sophisticated currents of the bossa world as it began to mature! A good deal of the work is from the Universal catalog – on labels that include Verve, Philips, and Elenco – and the set also brings in a few choice bits from other sources too – even a few original mono mixes from the 60s. Titles include "Moca Flor" by Tamba Trio, "Agua De Beber" by Astrud Gilberto, "Espere Um Pouco" by Quarteto Em Cy, "Estamos Ai" by Leny Adrade, "We & The Sea" by Tamba 4, "Coisas Do Brasil" by Leila Pinheiro, "Desafinado" by Laurindo Almeida, "Aguas De Marco" by Elis Regina & Antonio Carlos Jobim, "Coracao Vagabundo" by Caetano Veloso and Gal Costa, "Batucada" by Marcos Valle, "Quiet Nights" by Wanda De Sah, "Garota De Minha Cidade" by Johnny Alf, "Sonho De Um Carnaval" by Milton Banana Trio, "Retrato Em Branco E Preto" by Nara Leao, "Carta Ao Tom 74" by Vinicius De Moraes & Toquinho, "Reza" by Edu Lobo, and "Lamento Do Morro" by Doris Monteiro.

✨✧ MPB4Contigo Aprendi ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2011. Used ... Out Of Stock
An amazing return to form for this legendary Brazilian vocal group – quite possibly the best record we've heard from them in decades, and one of the few later sets to really capture the moody brilliance of their late 60s/early 70s work! The quartet work in a harmony mode, but one that's always been a lot darker than that of older contemporaries – such as Tamba Trio or Os Cariocas – in that MPB4 never think in strict jazz or bossa modes, but use these styles as a core, then move into deeper modes that are fleshed out with creative arrangements, and really wonderful vocal passages. This album really captures all that older charm of the group – thanks in part to arrangement help from Toninho Horta and Duofel – and titles include "Sabe Deus", "Contigo Aprendi", "Eu Amei Uma Vez", "Sabor Em Mim", "Noite De Ronda", and "Relogio".
