Tamba TrioTamba – Luiz Eca/Bebeto/Helcio Milito ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $14.99
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

✨✧ Tamba TrioTamba Trio (1962) ... CD
Polygram (Japan), 1962. Used ... $9.99
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 TrioTamba Trio (1975) ... CD
RCA (Brazil), 1975. New Copy ... $14.99
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". CD

✨✧ Tamba TrioTempo/Avanco ... CD
Philips (Japan), Mid 60s. Used ... $9.99
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

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".

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".

✨✧ Samba TrioSamba Pra Frente ... CD
Paladium/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $23.99
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

Kunihiko SuganoOpa Brazil (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Trio/Think (Japan), 1978. Used ... $19.99
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

VariousAmazing Bossa Nova – Journey To Rio De Janeiro ... CD
Universal (Japan), 1960s. New Copy 2CD ... $29.99
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.

✨✧ VariousBrazilica! ... CD
Suonaphone (UK), 1960s/1970s. Used ... $6.99
One of the greatest compilations of Brazilian music you could ever hope to buy – a brilliant selection of classic tunes, put together by DJs Gilles Peterson & Joe Davis as an introduction to the rich sounds of Brazil! The scope is amazing – a real blend of numbers that represent the best that Brazil has to offer, and which goes past the usual bossa-heavy type of compilation you'd find in the US. Here, the grooves know no boundaries – and run from jazzy, to baroque, to funky, breezy, folksy, and beyond. Many of the tracks on the set have still not been reissued in any other form, and even though the compilation's nearly a decade old, it's still one of the first we'd recommend to anyone wanting a great set of Brazilian music! Titles include "Birimbau" by Dom Um Romao, "Vera Cruz" by Milton Nascimento, "After Sunrise" by Sergio Mendes & Brasil 77, "Roda" by Gilberto Gil, "Solo" by Meirelles E Os Copa 5, "Crickets Sing For Anamaria" by Marcos Valle, "Blues A Volante" by Baden Powell, "Adam Adam" by Joyce, "Tamba" by Tamba Trio, "Upa Neguinho" by Edu Lobo, "Tudo Tom" by Joao Donato, and "Vidigal" by Marcos Resende & Index. 16 cuts in all – and an essential set!

✨✧ Miguel AngelSamba Na Onda ... CD
Equipe/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... About July 20, 2016 (delayed)
An upbeat groover from 60s Brazil – a highly percussive album that features work by Wilson Das Neves and Rubens Bassini! The record is an unusual one, in that it mixes the bossa harmony sound of groups like Tamba Trio or Os Cariocas with a harder, more percussive sound that owes something to the samba-grooving records of the time. The result is a really great set – one that bristles with electricity on every groove. Titles include "Lagrima Flor", "Telefone", "Da Bola", "Deixa Isso Pra La", "Isto E Samba", "Consolacao", "Roda De Samba", and "Bate A Palma". CD

✨✧ Balona E Seu ConjuntoGarota De Ipanema ... CD
Paladium/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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) ... CD
Odeon/RPM (UK), 1969. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". CD

✨✧ Samba TrioTristeza ... CD
Timeless/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A jazzy little groover – a record with Dutch origins, but a firm commitment to Brazilian sounds – in that wonderful mix of Latin rhythms and jazz that was flowing out of some of the hipper corners of the European scene in the early 80s! The set was recorded in the Netherlands – and features a quartet with Quim Requenjo on guitar, Alfredo Silva on bass, Alberto Silva on percussion, and Teresa Sayas on drums – a group that's highly rhythmic, but also nice and open in the way they approach their music, too – taking off in ways that are maybe like some of the later qualities of the Tamba Trio, especially when the group sings a bit – which they do in a great way on a number of tracks. The style's less bossa than a more open version of bossa-inspired jazz – and titles include "O Pato", "Chick De Ipanema", "Amelia Emilia", "Aquelas Coisas Todas", "Essa Marie", and "Vera Cruz".
