Tamba TrioAvanco ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $13.99
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".

Tamba TrioTamba Trio (1962) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... $13.99
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 (1968) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the most obscure Tamba Trio albums of the 60s – and a set that has the classic combo doing some heavenly takes on more familiar bossa numbers of the time! The album was recorded right before the group's sides for A&M in the US at the end of the 60s – and it's filled with the kind of sophisticated shadings, unusual timings, and warmly chromatic harmony vocals that really made the Tamba Trio stand part from the rest of their Brazilian contemporaries. Most numbers are relatively straight ahead, but they've got these little twists and turns that are really amazing – and even though the songs are mostly familiar, they still come off here with a very fresh feel! Titles include "Garota De Ipanema", "So Danco Samba", "O Morro Nao Tem Vez", "Berimbau", "Corcovado", "Consolacao", and "Desafinado". CD

✨✧ Sylvia Telles, Edu Lobo, Tamba TrioReencontro ... CD
Elenco (Brazil), 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark recording from the legendary Elenco series in Brazil – a stunning live set that features wobk by Sylvia Telles, Edu Lobo, the mighty Tamba Trio, and the Quinteto Villa Lobos! The set's almost a meeting of different bossa eras – with a young Lobo on guitar and voice, Telles singing in a sweet and light tone, the Tamba Trio grooving up some hard bossa rhythms, and the Quinteto Villa Lobos playing some light woodwind interpretations. The artists work together in differing combinations in the set, and titles include "Fotografia", "Zambi", "Preciso Aprender A Ser So", "Marcha Soldado", "Voce E Eu", and "Minha Namorada". CD

✨✧ Tamba TrioBlack & Blue ... CD
Dear Heart/BMG (Japan), 1974. Used ... 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 groove 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". Plus, the CD features the bonus tracks "Joga Da Vida", "Beira Mar", and "3 Horas Da Manha". CD

Luiz EcaAntologia Do Piano ... LP
Philips (Brazil), 1976. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Weird album of solo piano stuff by the brilliant keyboardist from the Tamba Trio. Luiz runs through tracks by a wide variety of Brazilian composers, including Joao Donato, Edu Lobo, Egeberto Gismonti, Johnny Alf, and Radames Gnattali. Some cuts are spare and "out", some are more jazzy. With "Pra Dizer Adeus", "O Sonho", "Olha Maria", and "Melancolia". LP, Vinyl record album

Grupo ManifestoManifesto Musical (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Elenco/Think (Japan), 1967. Used ... $14.99
The first album by this obscure and groovy early MPB-ish group – done in a great style that features with a range of voices laid out over some crazy off-kilter arrangements! The album's got mostly a bossa/samba feel, and in the same vein as Quarteto Em Cy or Tamba Trio, but with more space in the recording, and some great unique material. Grupo Manifesto were certainly one of the more obscure groups from the time, but they're right up there with other faves from the post bossa era, and with the same high quality as the best artists on the Elenco label. The album's got a crazy cover, like most of the Elenco records – and features the tracks "Manifesto", "O Mundo E Nosso", "Garota Esquerdinha", "Brasil Da Samba", and "Cabra Macho". CD

✨✧ JoyceEncontro Marcado ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $13.99
Damn – what a great album! This is Joyce's second solo album – and it's a landmark in Brazilian music, stretching way past the bossa styles of her first release, into a groove that's free, jazzy, and open-ended, a real shift towards the genius of her work in the 70s and 80s. Arrangements are by Luiz Eca of the Tamba Trio – and they have a complicated jazzy approach that really lets Joyce open up as a singer, moving into the sort of territory that you'd expect from artists like Marcos Valle or Elis Regina. The album's a real gem, and it's so rare that it hardly got any global circulation at the time – despite Joyce's later fame at a worldwide level. Titles include "Adam Adam", "Encontro Marcado", "Bom Dia", "Longe Do Tempo", "Asa Branca", "Como Vai, Vai Bem", "Caminho Pro Sol", and "Preparando Um Luminoso". CD

✨✧ Nara LeaoO Canto Livre De Nara (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $13.99
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

Carlos LyraDepois Do Carnaval ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $13.99
A great early album of bossa work from the legendary Carlos Lyra – caught here at his youthful prime, and working with sublime arrangements from Luiz Eca! The record's easily one of Lyra's best from the early years – and Eca's group the Tamba Trio guest star on a few tunes – playing with a jazzy tinge that's totally wonderful. A young Nara Leao also makes an appearance on the record – and titles include "Sem Saida", "Quem Quizer Encontrar O Amor", "Gostar Ou Nao Gostar", "Depois Do Carnaval", and his classic "Influencia Do Jazz", an ironic track about the influence of jazz on Brazilian music!

Os GatosOs Gatos ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $13.99
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". CD

Os 3 MoraisOs 3 Morais ... CD
Odeon/Universal (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $13.99
An incredible album – especially if you dig the groovier side of Brazil! Os 3 Morais fit nicely in a groove that runs between Som 3, Tamba Trio, Marcos Valle, and Antonio Adolfo & Brazuca – and they have a style that's a mix of the madder baroque arrangements of Valle and Adolfo, with the harmony vocals of Tamba Trio or Quarteto Em Cy, and the slightly funky jazz of Som 3. This album's an impeccable treasure for fans of the Blue Brazil sound – and it's got a stellar reading of "Freio Aerodynamico" that's worth the price of the album alone! The whole thing's great, though, and other tracks include "Odeon", "Desafinado", "Tico Tico No Fuba", "Jequi-Bach", "Azul Da Cor Do Mar", "Se Quiser Valer", and "Sambachiana". CD

Os Tres Brasileiros (aka Os Tres Morais)Brazil LXIX ... CD
Capitol/Universal (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $13.99
Excellent work from Os Tres Brasileiros – better known in Brazil as Os Tres Morais! The group, like many, were a Brazilian ensemble who recorded in America under a different name – one that might be more "catchy" for the American audiences – but apart from that shift, their music is all authentic all the way – with a wonderful harmony vocal sound that follows in the tradition of Quarteto Em Cy or Tamba Trio! Even better, the album has an organist backing the group up – with sweet bubbling notes that sound a lot like the work of Walter Wanderley, and which give the album an even nicer groovy touch! The whole thing's incredible – a real treat all the way through, with great originals like "Sambamor", "Jequi-Bach", "Outono", and "Brincando De Samba" – plus sweet covers like "Days Of Wine & Roses", "Moon River", and "The Shadow Of Your Smile".

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".

Quarteto SambacanaMuito Pra Frente ... CD
Odeon/EMI (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $13.99
Soaring harmonies from this cool 60s Brazilian group – a real lost gem that's in the best Brazilian harmony tradition of the time! The set is similar to work by Os Cariocas, Tamba Trio, and other groups of that nature – soaring vocals over bossa rhythms – but it's also got an approach that goes past the standard approach, into styles that are quite complicated, both vocally and instrumentally – delivered here with a touch that's light, but which also has a nice degree of sadness. Titles include "Aladim", "Tom Da Cancao", "Ate Voce Voltar", "Eu E Voce", "O Navio E Voce", "Tarde Azul", "Mesmo Ceu", "Sem Me Olhar", and "Fui Olhar Pra Voce". CD

Kunihiko SuganoOpa Brazil (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Trio/Think (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $21.99
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

Tamba 4Samba Blim ... CD
CTI/A&M (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $13.99
An incredible album by the Tamba 4 – one of 2 albums the Brazilian bossa combo did in the US for A&M Records, during the brief time when they were expanded to a quartet from the original Tamba Trio lineup! The set is completely sublime – a wonderful mix of the group's trademark harmony vocals and crackling bossa rhythms, with the warmly flowing CTI production style of the time – not funky like the CTI sound of the 70s, but a bit more sophisticated than the style Creed Taylor had been using earlier at Verve. Tracks are short, breezy, and often very lively – bossa grooving warmed in the California sun – and titles include "Samba Blim", "Watch What Happens", "Pregao", "San Salvador", "Know It All", and "Palladium".

Viva VozViva Voz ... CD
EMI/Universal (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $13.99
A sweet groover from 70s Brazil – the only album we've ever seen by this harmony group – a male/female sextet that mixes warm vocals with lively samba rhythms! The approach is fantastic, and unique – different than the breezier feel of bossa nova harmony groups, and with some rootsy elements in the rhythms – which creates a vibe that's very fresh, and which suits the vocals beautifully! Arrangements are by Luis Avelar, and a nice current of jazz runs through the work – clearly that influence from American harmony groups picked up by Tamba Trio and Quarteto Em Cy – but used here in a nicely different way. Titles include "To Aqui Te Esperando", "O Trenzinho Caipira", "Lado Do Avesso", "Bela Bela", "Sabor Impune", and "Tomara". CD

A warm intimate session of jazz vocals by singer Pery Ribeiro – who get some extremely sensitive backing here from pianist Luiz Eca, probably best known to folks as the leader of the Tamba Trio. The sound is spare and clean, and Ribeiro delivers some of his best vocal performances in years. Some tracks feature rhythm work by Zeco Assumpcao or Luiz Alves on bass, and either Robertinho Silva or Wilson Das Neves on drums – and some tracks just feature Ribeiro and Eca with no accompaniment. Tracks include "Nossa Vidas", "Valsinha", "Amargura", and "Oferenda". LP, Vinyl record album
