Barclay/Mr Bongo (UK), 1972. New Copy (reissue)
One of the grooviest Brazilian albums you could ever hope to buy – and one that's not even from Brazil, either! This little gem was recorded in France in the early 70s – but it's got a swinging groove that's very similar to the work of Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 during the 60s ... LP, Vinyl record album
Barclay/Mr Bongo (UK), 1972. New Copy
One of the grooviest Brazilian albums you could ever hope to buy – and one that's not even from Brazil, either! This little gem was recorded in France in the early 70s – but it's got a swinging groove that's very similar to the work of Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 during the 60s ... CD
Continental/Mr Bongo (UK), 1976. New Copy
A record with "samba" in the title, but a set that hardly sounds like samba at all – given that the record is one of the groundbreaking 70s albums from the legendary Tom Ze! Ze first rose to fame as an experimentalist in the Tropicalia scene – but here, he's years past that ... CD
Philips/Dusty Groove, 1972. New Copy
CD...$5.99 18.98
A stunner of a record from the mighty Jorge Ben – and a record that catapulted the Brazilian singer to international fame at the time! Ben had already been making magic for almost a decade down in Brazil – and his compositions and grooves left an undeniable impact on the scene in the ... CD

Jongo Trio

Jongo Trio (1972)
EMI/Odeon (Brazil), 1972. New Copy
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 ... CD
Tapecar/Amazon (Brazil), Early 70s. New Copy
Moody female vocals from Brazil – a great early 70s album with a dreamy feel and a nice electric touch! In a way, the album's a fair bit like the Ana Mazzotti album from the same period, with a mix of some funky scatting vocal numbers, and other tunes that are more laidback, but which fit ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Brazil), 1974. New Copy
Sweet 70s grooving from Brazilian singer Eva – a bit of soul, a bit of easy, all styled together nicely by orchestrations from the magical maestro Gaya! Gaya's work here is similar to his best backings for other artists in the Blue Brazil generation – a mix of American pop, post-bossa ... CD

Gal Costa

Gal (1969)
Philips/Mercury (Brazil), 1969. New Copy
Heady heady work from the legendary Gal Costa – caught here right at her early best, smack dab in the middle of the Tropicalia years! The album's one of Gal's legendary collaborations with arranger Rogerio Duprat – and it's very much in the spirit of her other incredible session from ... CD

Os Mutantes

Os Mutantes (1968)
Universal (Brazil), 1968. New Copy
A landmark album from late 60s Brazil! This is the first – and the wildest – album by this legendary group that was one of the founding forces of the Tropicalia movement – a brilliant musical statement that easily ranks with some of the most groundbreaking late 60s American work ... CD
Continental/Mr Bongo (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)
A record with "samba" in the title, but a set that hardly sounds like samba at all – given that the record is one of the groundbreaking 70s albums from the legendary Tom Ze! Ze first rose to fame as an experimentalist in the Tropicalia scene – but here, he's years past that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Odeon/Cornbread, 1964. New Copy (reissue)
Rare early work from the great Marcos Valle – and one of his first-ever albums! The record's very much in a moody bossa mode, and the orchestrations are wonderful – light, but never sleepy – really done with that unique new bent that Brazilian artists were using at the time, best ... LP, Vinyl record album

Caetano, Moreno, Tom, & Zeca Veloso

Ofertorio Ao Vivo (Brazilian version)
Universal (Brazil), 2018. New Copy
A fantastic family outing from Caetano Veloso – one that has the legendary Brazilian singer working with his sons Tom, Zeca, and Moreno Veloso! Moreno's probably the one who's best known to American audiences – thanks to his fantastic legacy of sounds with Domenico and Kassin in the +2 ... CD
Polygram (Brazil), Late 60s/1970s/Mid 80s. New Copy
Nice overstuffed "best of" compilation that features work by Veloso that spans from his early Tropicalia years to the stuff he did as a pseudo-new wave artist in the early 80s. 7 cuts alone are from the pivotal year of 1968 – including "Shy Moon", "Lua De Sao ... CD

Gal Costa

India
Philips/Mr Bongo (UK), 1973. New Copy
One of the richest, most expressive albums ever from the great Gal Costa – a set from her immediate post-Tropicalia years, and one that shows that she's got a lot more to offer than just a wild sense of experimentation! Gilberto Gil is the musical director here – with help from Rogerio ... CD
Arista/BGO (UK), 1972/1975/1976. New Copy 2 CDs
A trio of albums from percussionist Airto – with bonus tracks too! First up is Free – one of the coolest, grooviest albums you'll ever hear from the legendary percussionist Airto – a set that mixes his own Brazilian roots with the electric genius of 70s CTI – all with ... CD

Jorge Ben

Jorge Ben (1969)
Philips/Dusty Groove, 1969. Used
A samba soul masterpiece from Jorge Ben – one of the most brilliant records to come out the fertile late 60s Brazilian scene – and an incredible album that works with the psychedelic flourishes of Ben's contemporaries and a deeper undercurrent of soul & funk! This is one of the ... CD
Philips/Elemental (Spain), 1966. New Copy (reissue)
An excellent early gem by one of Brazil's greatest singers! The record captures Elis Regina at a prime early stage – when her voice was raw and filled with emotion, and when she was backed by some excellent arrangements that blended jazz, bossa, and more complicated vocal settings. The ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philips/Elemental (Spain), 1975. New Copy (reissue)
A really overlooked album from Caetano Veloso – one that's quite different than the more experimental modes of records like his Tropicalia sets, or his Araca Azul record – but with a unique charm that makes it every bit as special as those! The set's quite stripped-down and personal ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gal Costa

Legal
Philips/Elemental (Spain), 1970. New Copy
Essential early material by Gal Costa! The record is her first after the immediate Tropicalia years, and it's a stunning blend of styles that seems to draw heavily from changes going on in the American rock scene at the time. The core of the music is still steeped in Brazilian elements – ... CD

Marcos Valle

Mustang Cor De Sangue
Odeon/Elemental (Spain), 1969. New Copy
One of the greatest records ever by the legendary Marcos Valle – a set of pure genius that's beyond description – easily one of the key records that's got him so well-remembered in recent years! The record takes Valle's earlier bossa style, and filters it through a late 60s sense of ... CD
Discobertas (Brazil), Mid 70s. New Copy
Unreleased 70s material from the great Joao Donato – taken from a time when he gave us the classic albums Quem E Quem and Lugar Comum – but hardly did anything else at all! During this time, Donato was really shifting from his bossa roots – still with a sense of modernism in his ... LP, Vinyl record album
Discobertas (Brazil), 1978. New Copy
A lost 70s album from the great Joao Donato – set that was never issued at the time, but which should have been the follow-up to his classic Lugar Comum! Like that set, there's great use of electric piano on the record – over subtle and funky rhythms that mix elements from the samba ... LP, Vinyl record album
EMI/Polysom (Brazil), 1978. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A second great statement from the "corner club" of Milton Nascimento – that special assemblage of musicians from his home territory of Minas Gerais, augmented here in slight ways that maybe make the album an even more ambitious record than the first! All the best artists from the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Discobertas (Brazil), 1965/1972/1978/1985. New Copy 4 CDs
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 ... CD

Maria Bethania & Zeca Pagodinho

De Santo Amaro A Xerem
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2019. New Copy 2CD
A classic-styled Brazilian live collaboration – a set with solo performances by each of the stars in the lead, and some great duet material together! The approach is one that's been used on Brazilian albums from the earliest records by Elis Regina and Jair Rodriguez – and it's still a ... CD
Polydor/Polysom (Brazil), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A tripped-out batch of hard jamming tracks from ex-Mutante Rita Lee – recorded with assistance from all the members of the group at the time, but in a mode that's quite different overall! Lee is clearly the star of the show here – singing all lyrics with a much fiercer vocal approach ... LP, Vinyl record album
Som Livre/Polysom (Brazil), 1970. New Copy (reissue)
A totally great album from Novos Baianos – the earliest one we've ever seen by the group, and a session that has them sounding a fair bit like Os Mutantes! There's a wild range of influences running through the set – some psychedelic, some baroque pop, and some a bit more rootsy – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tropical Diaspora (Germany), 2018. New Copy Gatefold
A contemporary set from Brazil, but one with a groove that feels like it was lifted right from the 70s – especially that period later in the decade when samba soul modes were coming into play with warmer boogie modes! The set's a live one, and features the strong lead vocals of Renato Gama ... LP, Vinyl record album

Grupo Controle Digital

A Festa E Nossa
Soundway (UK), Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)
A rare Brazilian album from the early 80s, but one that's quite different than you might expect – as these guys have a clear love of keyboards that resonate with some of the bigger electro pop acts of the UK and European scene of the time! The group's really just a duo – Billy Jaguar ... LP, Vinyl record album
NMC/Be With (UK), 1983. New Copy (reissue)
A wonderfully strange combination of musical elements – and one that really stands out because of that strangeness! Judith Ravitz is an Israeli singer, but she's also got a love for the music of Jorge Ben – and she recorded this sweet little set at a time when Jorge's backing group, A ... LP, Vinyl record album
Muzak (Japan), 1984. New Copy Gatefold
Brazilian grooves, but served up by a Chicago combo – one that features the great pianist Breno Sauer working with local musicians while he was living in the Windy City! The style here is a bit like some of the best 70s Bay Area groups who could mix together jazz and Brazilian elements ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 2018. New Copy
Brazilian music in the 21st Century – great work from a scene that just keeps on growing in really fresh ways – amazing us with the dexterous combination of new ideas, sounds, and styles from the kinds of artists who are featured on this set! We've stocked a number of these artists on ... CD
Luaka Bop, 1970s. New Copy 2LP
Insanely great sounds from the legendary Tim Maia – easily the most soulful singer in 70s Brazil, and an artist with a heck of a strong ear for funk, too! The music here is an incredible hybrid of American soul and Brazilian elements – especially since some lyrics are in English – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Quartin/Far Out (Brazil), 1970. New Copy (reissue)
An incredible record from the legendary Quartin label – and a set that, like most of the releases from that imprint, has a sound that's years ahead of its time! Piri's a guitarist, and works here with an instrumental combo who support his soaring, scatting vocals – in a mode that's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Claudette Soares & Alaide Costa

60 Anos De Bossa
Kuarup (Brazil), 2018. New Copy
A celebration of 60s years of bossa nova by two Brazilian singers who were almost with the genre at the start! And while the ladies might look like the Golden Girls on the cover, they come across with a lot more youth and verve on the record – especially Soares, who seems as if she hasn't ... CD

Maria Bethania

Passaro Proibido
Universal (Brazil), 1976. New Copy
An amazing 70s album from the legendary Maria Bethania – one of those records that's without precedent, and which comes together in an array of styles that's simply breathtaking! The sound here is a bit more focused and mature than some of Maria's earlier records, but the overall work is no ... CD
Polygram (Brazil), 1971. New Copy
An incredible live album from Gal Costa – one that's easily as great as any of her studio albums from the time! But unlike the studio albums, the style here is quite spare and intimate – a very personal presentation of Gal's music, recorded in a way that has her starting out nearly ... CD

Itibere Orquestra Familia

Pedra Do Espia
Far Out (Brazil), 2001. New Copy 2CD
Wonderful jazziness from Brazil! This group has a sound that's beyond compare – influenced clearly by the 70s work of Hermeto Pascoal, but much more tuneful, light, and dancing – vocals blending with piano, percussion, and a host of angular reed instruments! The sound is incredible ... CD

Caetano, Moreno, Tom, & Zeca Veloso

Ofertorio Ao Vivo
Universal, 2018. New Copy
A fantastic family outing from Caetano Veloso – one that has the legendary Brazilian singer working with his sons Tom, Zeca, and Moreno Veloso! Moreno's probably the one who's best known to American audiences – thanks to his fantastic legacy of sounds with Domenico and Kassin in the +2 ... CD
Far Out (Brazil), 1975. New Copy (reissue)
A record with an unusual source, but a sound that puts it right up there with some of the most heavenly rare Brazilian albums of the 70s – served up here in a folksy, jazzy mix of acoustic and electric elements – all with help from heavyweights who include Victor Assis Brasil, Mauricio ... LP, Vinyl record album

Baiano & Os Novos Caetanos

Baiano & Os Novos Caetanos (180 gram vinyl)
CID/Far Out (Brazil), 1974. New Copy (reissue)
A very weird record – and an odd parody of both Os Novos Baianos and Caetano Veloso! The album's recorded live, and it's very much in the spirit of early work by Os Novos Baianos – with loads of tunes that have a funky samba style, with some nice rough touches – but there's also ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tim Maia

Tim Maia (1977)
Som Livre (Brazil), 1977. New Copy
70s soul from Brazil – and a tremendously strong effort from the legendary Tim Maia! This record was Tim's first after an initial run on Polydor – and it shows Maia tightening up his groove even more, but still avoiding the slicker sounds of later years. There's a really focused sound ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1974. New Copy
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 ... CD

Tim Maia

Tim Maia (1977)
Mr Bongo (UK), 1977. New Copy
70s soul from Brazil – and a tremendously strong effort from the legendary Tim Maia! This record was Tim's first after an initial run on Polydor – and it shows Maia tightening up his groove even more, but still avoiding the slicker sounds of later years. There's a really focused sound ... CD

Cesar Mariano & CIA

Sao Paulo - Brasil
RCA/Mr Bongo (UK), 1977. New Copy
A fantastic bit of funky fusion from Brazil – one of the most hard-hitting albums we've ever heard from keyboardist Cesar Mariano! Mariano had a long legacy in music that included great arrangements for Elis Regina – but this set is completely different than most of his other work ... CD
Soundway (UK), Late 80s/Early 90s. New Copy
A captivating slice of work from Brazil – not the samba, bossa, or even Tropicalia sounds you might be used to – but instead a selection of tracks that owe plenty to the changes in soul, rock, and pop that took place in the Anglo world during the 80s! Much of this music has a fair bit ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1971. New Copy
A wonderful 70s session from bossa legend Lyra, and a set that's got a different sound than some of his earlier work – but one that's still plenty great overall! The mode is a bit more subdued than before – still with bossa at the roots, but also production and instrumentation that nod ... CD
Polydor/Universal (Brazil), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy
A nice 14 track sampler of the best work by Brazilian soul singer Tim Maia from the early 1970s through the early 1980s. Unlike many other Brazilian singers Maia's style has a lot of US soul influences in it, especially as he moves more into his modern soul work of the early 80s. The sound is ... CD

Toquinho & Vinicius

10 Anos De Toquinho & Vinicius
Philips (Brazil), 1979. New Copy
An incredible celebration of a decade of music from the team of Toquinho and Vinicius De Moraes – not a greatest hits collection, but instead a set that features new reworkings of their classics – all interwoven together in this really great way! The raspy vocals of Vinicius and the ... CD

Paula & Jacques Morelenbaum

Live In Italy – Omaggio To Jobim
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2017. New Copy
A fantastic tribute to the music of Antonio Carlos Jobim – and, as you'd expect from the duo of Paula and Jacques Morelenbaum, a set that's got a very unique flavor overall! The Morelenbaums have always been committed to the little sounds, the simple moments that have made Brazilian music ... CD
