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

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

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
Eagle Vision, 2005. New Copy
CD...$3.99 13.98
Take it from us, Seu Jorge puts on one of the greatest live shows you'll ever hope to see – and what's even more amazing is that most of the power of his performance comes from only voice and guitar, plus a bit of added instrumentation on the stage! This Montreux performance from 2005 really ... CD
Analog Africa (Germany), 1970s. New Copy
A mindblowing discovery of music from northern Brazil – not the more familiar sounds that you might know from Rio or Sao Paulo, but much rootsier grooves that were first forged up at the northern city of Belem! The city is a gateway to the Amazon, and also a crossroads too – blessed ... CD

Quintal De Clorofila

O Misterio Dos Quintais
Discos Mariposa (Argentina), 1983. New Copy
Complicated and folksy work from Quintal De Clorofila – aka Garden Of Chlorophyll – the duo of Negendre and Dimitri Arbo, singing together and working on an assortment of instruments that include acoustic guitars, casio keyboard, bandolim, microharp, soprano sax, flute, and lots of ... CD
Solar/World Psychedelia, 1974. New Copy
A gem of a record from the same Pernambuco early 70s scene that gave us Lula Cortes, Ze Ramalho, Geraldo Azevedo, and Alceu Valenca! This obscure little set has lots of the earthier tones that showed up in work by the above artists – a style that mixes folksy touches with bits of psychedelia ... CD

Tim Maia

Tim Maia (1977)
Mr Bongo (UK), 1977. New Copy (reissue)
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dom Um Romao

Dom Um Romao
Muse, 1973. New Copy (reissue)
An unbelievably fantastic album, and perhaps the greatest one that Dom Um Romao ever cut!

LP, Vinyl record album
Odeon/Polysom (Brazil), 1973. New Copy (reissue)
Fantastic instrumental fusion from Brazil – a killer set from the combo who came from Milton Nascimento's scene, and often backed him up in the early 70s! Som Imaginario have a style that mixed the complex jazzy arranging styles of artists like Egberto Gismonti or Edu Lobo with some of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Discos Marcus Pereira/Polysom (Brazil), 1976. New Copy (reissue)
A 70s gem from Cartola – one of the key recordings done in a crucial flurry of activity in the later years of his career! There's a simple brilliance here that's hard to deny – aging vocals mixed with spare backings on guitar, flute, and percussion – all in a samba style that's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Polydor (Brazil), 1970. New Copy (reissue)
The incredible first album by Tim Maia – Brazil's greatest soul star in the 70s, and for good reason too – given that Tim was one of the few who could match the depth of American soul and funk at the time! Yet the music here is way more than just a Brazilian version of American soul ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner/Polysom (Brazil), 1977. New Copy (reissue)
An excellent album by one of the greatest Brazilian funk bands ever – a wonderful blend of funk, jazz, and soul – and a set that rivals any of the best work coming from the US at the time! These guys are right on the money right from the start – moving through sharp changes with ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1974. New Copy (reissue)
Searing samba soul from Jorge Ben – one of his best-remembered albums of the 70s, and for good reason too! The album's got a slightly fuller feel than some of Ben's other work of the time – never slick, but with backings balanced nicely against his own raspy vocals and acoustic guitar ... LP, Vinyl record album

Toni Tornado

Toni Tornado
Odeon/Mad About Records (Portugal), 1972. New Copy (reissue)
An early 70s gem from Brazilian singer Toni Tornado – one of that country's greatest soul singers of the time, and an artist with a real talent for putting over a groove! The tunes on the set are a mad mix of heavy funk, deep soul, and larger arrangements – making the whole thing sound ... LP, Vinyl record album

Les Masques with Le Trio Camara

Brasilian Sound
CBS/Le Tres Jazz Club (France), Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)
Groovy groovy groovy! Les Masques were a 60s vocal-oriented Brazilian combo from France, and they had a tight jazzy approach that was similar to Sergio Mendes and Brazil 66! That alone would be enough to make them #1 in our book – but they also get some excellent backing from the Trio ... LP, Vinyl record album
Polysom (Brazil), 2019. New Copy (reissue)
Brazilian singer Elba Ramalho is still going strong – and maybe sounding better than ever, partly due to a matured quality in her vocals – which makes things sometimes sound deeper than in the early years! The style here is a mix of older forro elements with more contemporary touches ... LP, Vinyl record album
Polysom (Brazil), 2019. New Copy
A killer set from Brazilian trombonist Marlon Sette – a player who seems likely to take on the legacy of Raul De Souza, through his own mix of jazz, funk, and soul! The set's all instrumental, with plenty of strong solos from Sette – working in a combo that also features Alex Meirelles ... LP, Vinyl record album
Soul Jazz (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Fantastic grooves from the 70s – tracks that are part of a great second wave of Brazilian music to hit our shores, then take off in a whole new direction!

Os Seis Em Ponto

Os Seis Em Ponto
RGE/Vampi Soul (Spain), 1966. New Copy (reissue)
A sweet bossa combo from 60s Brazil – a jazzy little group that features some very early work on piano and arrangements from Francis Hime – whose sense of tone and color is already shining through, even at a relatively young age! Hime plays piano, and Nelson Motta plays guitar – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Maria Rita (Maria Rita Stumpf)

Brasileira
Selva (Brazil), 1988. New Copy (reissue)
Not the same Maria Rita that rose to international fame in the past decade or so – but an earlier, much more obscure singer with a nicely rootsy vibe – one whose presence in the Brazilian music scene is maybe more welcome to our ears than her famous later namesake! The album came out ... LP, Vinyl record album

Banda Black Rio

O Som Das Americas
Universal (Brazil), 2019. New Copy
Contemporary work from Banda Black Rio – the legendary Brazilian funk band who gave us some really great records in the 70s! Turns out, the group still sounds great after all the passage of years – more in a modern soul mode overall, with a few more sophisticated twists and turns ... CD
CBS/Mad About Records (Portugal), 1977. New Copy (reissue)
A classic album of 70s soul from Brazil – put together with a warm sunny finish that seems to unify the best modes of Rio and LA at the time!

Buddah/Muzak (Japan), 1970. New Copy
One of Airto's best albums ever – and one that we never tire of hearing! There's a sublime quality here that steps perfectly right off of the percussionist's groundbreaking work with Quarteto Novo! Airto's joined on this set by Hermeto Pascoal – also from the Quarteto Novo group ... CD

Novos Baianos

E Ferro Na Boneca
Mr Bongo (UK), 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

Moyseis Marques

Passatempo – Ao Vivo
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2019. New Copy
A beautiful set of live samba and choro performances from this up-and-coming Brazilian singer – an artist who's younger than most in his field, but who manages to make his music resonate with a strong sense of history, while also reveling in the energy of youth! The album's a well-recorded ... CD
Philips/Elemental (Spain), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
One of the weirdest, wildest albums Caetano Veloso ever recorded – a highly experimental session that shows that his ties with the avant art world were still plenty strong on his return to Brazil! Despite a goofy cheeseball photo of Veloso on the cover in a bikini, the sound on this one is ... LP, Vinyl record album

Caetano Veloso

Joia (180 gram pressing)
Philips/Elemental (Spain), 1975. New Copy (reissue)
Caetano Veloso in a wonderfully intimate mode – singing in this great spare setting that features only a bit of minimal instrumentation on guitar, percussion, and keyboards – a style that's very much in the best territory of his Qualquer Coisa record! Veloso's vocals are wonderful in ... LP, Vinyl record album
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1965. New Copy
Brazilian keyboardist Ubirajara plays an instrument few folks could ever make sound this groovy – the lean Solovox electric piano – whose fuzzy sounds soar out over some really great larger arrangements! Some songs are bold and brassy, others have a more exotic vibe – and ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1964. New Copy
A set that's a bit mellower than some of the other 60s records by Brazilian organist Ely Arcoverde – but one that's still got a very groovy sound overall! As you'd guess by the "boleros" in the title, most tunes are ballads – slow-steppers with a great late nite vibe, which ... CD

Various

Brasa 4
Bemol/Discobertas (Brazil), 1968. New Copy
A cool collection of late 60s rock and pop from Brazil – and a set that stands as a nice contrast to some of the "song festival" albums from the time on Philips and Odeon! Like those sets, this one presents up-and-coming artists working through a variety of material – but ... CD

Maysa

Maysa (1957)
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1957. New Copy
Very early work from Maysa – an album recorded in 1957, before her better-known bossa sides of the 60s – and a set that shows the singer in the kind of full-voiced style that first made her a legend! Masya's got a great talent for subtle drama here – a kind of deep burning vibe ... CD

Juca Chaves

Juca Bom De Camera
Som Livre/Discobertas (Brazil), 1977. New Copy
Juca Chaves relaxes in bed on the cover, but he's actually sounding a bit more formal throughout the album – working with great arrangements from Radames Gnatalli, always heavy on woodwinds – and with a sophisticated style that brings a lot to his music. The clarinets and other ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1963. New Copy
Some of the weirdest, wildest organ work we've ever heard – and that's coming from folks with a record collection stuffed with Jack McDuff, Jimmy Smith, and even Sun Ra! Ely Arcoverde is a bit in the territory of Brazilian 60s organ contemporary Walter Wanderley – especially in the way ... CD

Ely Arcoverde

O Orgao Que Canta Sambas
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1962. New Copy
Wonderfully weird bossa organ from the lesser-known Ely Arcoverde – a record that stands in nice contrast to better-known 60s Brazilian organ sessions from Walter Wanderley and Ed Lincoln! The rhythms are often in a samba mode – arranged by Waldemiro Lemke – but Ely's got a way ... CD
Milestone/Far Out (UK), 1979. New Copy (reissue)
One of Azymuth's best-remembered albums from their American years on Milestone – a really killer classic that beautifully blends Brazilian and American styles of fusion! There's a simple, elegant feel to these tunes that takes off nicely from the group's previous album for Atlantic in Brazil ... LP, Vinyl record album

Waldecir Lima

Revelacao
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1964. New Copy
Really moody vocals from Waldecir Lima – an artist with a sound that's a lot deeper and more resonant than most other Brazilian 60s singers who were pictured on the cover holding an acoustic guitar! The style here isn't the light mode of the bossa generation – which usually comes with ... CD

Jorge Ben

Sacundin Ben Samba
Universal (Brazil), 1964. New Copy
One of Jorge Ben's greatest albums – a groundbreaking blend of samba and soul that forever went onto transform the face of Brazilian music! The record works off the groove set down by Jorge's earlier hit "Mas Que Nada" (which appears on another LP), and takes the blend of 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
Continental/Discos Mariposa (Argentina), 1972. New Copy
The second album from O Terco – the guitar-heavy power trio who were one of the hardest things going in Brazil during the early 70s! The album's got a style that's somewhat progressive, but which also still holds onto plenty of late 60s psychedelic elements – qualities both sweet and ... CD

Ronnie Von

A Maquina Voadora
Polydor/Discos Mariposa (Argentina), 1970. New Copy
A really standout set from Brazilian rocker Ronnie Von – easily one of his greatest records ever, and a set that shows some wonderful steps forward in production and arrangements! Ronnie's still got a rock approach at his core, but he's often working here with fuller backings that include ... CD
Odeon/El (UK), 1959. New Copy
CD...$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 ... CD
Odeon/El (UK), 1963. New Copy
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 ... CD

Joao Donato/Eumir Deodato

Donato-Deodato
Muse, 1973. New Copy (reissue)
The legendary meeting of the two biggest Brazilian keyboard talents of the 70s – Joao Donato and Eumir Deodato – coming together in beautifully funky formation! The sound is a great blend of the moody electric work of Donato's classic Quem E Quem album, and some of the fuller, funkier ... LP, Vinyl record album

Antonio Carlos Jobim

Stone Flower
CTI, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
One of Antonio Carlos Jobim's greatest records – and a perfect blend of his subtle bossa genius with the moody electric sound of CTI! Jobim plays electric and acoustic piano, guitar, and sings a bit – and Deodato handled the arrangements with a breezy brilliance that matches all the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lisa Ono

Brasil
Toyokasei (Japan), 2014. New Copy
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Vinicius De Moraes & Odette Lara

Vinicius & Odette Lara (180 gram pressing)
Elenco/Elemental (Spain), 1963. New Copy (reissue)
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 ... 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
