XBossa nova, samba, MPB, Tropicalia, choro, and more -- a great selection of music, both vintage and contemporary!


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
CTI/Vocalion (UK), 1973. New Copy
CTI Records meets that Brazilian fusion sound of the 70s – served up here on two classic albums! Fingers is one of Airto's greatest records ever – a really hard hitting batch of tracks that mix sharp-edged fusion lines with some earthier Brazilian percussion touches – all in a ... 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
Velho Batuqueiro
Tapecar/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1975. New Copy
An album that bristles with soul and life from the very first note – one of a great run of 70s samba sets recorded by Xango Da Mangueira – all of them pretty darn great! This one's got all the right elements firmly in place – immediately catchy rhythms served up by simple ... CD
Candeia
Equipe/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970. New Copy
Lovely samba work from Candeia – a singer with a voice that's richly expressive, but often without any effort at all – a laidback approach that's instantly compelling, laid over some lively old school arrangements! There's a bit of horns mixed in with the percussion and backing vocals ... CD
Sambas Na Passarela
Pawal/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1961. New Copy
A wonderful early groover from Brazilian keyboardist Celso Murilo – an artist who plays organ over samba rhythms here – in the same style as the legendary Walter Wanderley! Celso never got the kind of American fame that Wanderley did with his records on Verve – but the approach ... CD
Los Danseros En Bolero
Equipe/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1964. New Copy
A record we'd love to know more about – because the sound and presentation is so amazing! The set brings a bossa vibe to a mixture of American jazz and soundtrack tunes – often folding two tracks into one performance, and couching the melodies in some fuller strings and lighter, lively ... CD
Samba Pra Frente
Paladium/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1965. New Copy
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 ... CD
Tapecar/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1976. New Copy
A key set in a great 70s run from Elza Soares – served up with a raspy charm in the vocals, and a nice sort of polish in the arrangements! There's a good balance here between mainstream samba and rootsier modes – Elza holding onto the latter with her heartfelt vocals, and getting a ... CD
Ronie & Central Do Brasil
Tapecar/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1975. New Copy
Sweet funk from 70s Brazil – a totally great album from drummer Ronnie – aka Ronald Mesquita, the percussive force behind the Bossa Tres combo! This album's got a smoother groove than their records – great use of Fender Rhodes, gliding alongside sweet samba soul arrangements ... CD
Burnier & Cartier (1974)
RCA/Mr Bongo (UK), 1974. New Copy
One of the few albums ever cut by the team of Octavio Burnier and Claudio Cartier – a mid 70s Brazilian duo with a sweet and soulful finish! Both Burnier and Cartier play guitar – but not in a spare, Baden Powell-like way. Instead, they've got a sound that's very full – touched ... CD
Maria Fumaca
Atlantic/Mr Bongo (UK), 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
Far Out (UK), 2018. New Copy
The first work we've heard in many years from keyboardist Hugo Fattoruso – an artist who was born in Uruguay, but whose talents have been intertwined with Brazilian music for many years – including early recordings in a bossa mode, and 70s fusion with his legendary Opa combo! This set ... CD
Odeon/El (UK), 1959. New Copy
CD...$6.99 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
Philips/Elemental (Spain), 1970. New Copy (reissue)
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 – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Caetano Veloso (1967)
Philips/Elemental (Spain), 1967. New Copy
One of the building blocks of the late 60s Tropicalia scene in Brazil – and a standout solo debut from the young Caetano Veloso! The album's got an approach that's as dynamic and trippy as its cover image might imply – the same amazing blend of sounds and styles you'd hear on ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2018. New Copy
The first work we've heard in many years from keyboardist Hugo Fattoruso – an artist who was born in Uruguay, but whose talents have been intertwined with Brazilian music for many years – including early recordings in a bossa mode, and 70s fusion with his legendary Opa combo! This set ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve/Elemental (Spain), 1968. New Copy (reissue)
One of the grooviest Verve albums of all time – a rare American session from Brazilian legend Marcos Valle – and his only US album to feature vocals! The album's even dreamier than Valle's early bossa sides from Brazil – and the setting has some nice Verve-like touches from ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rambling (Japan), 2017. New Copy
Warmly jazzy magic from Joyce – a set that's based around the songs of Dorival Caymmi – which she recorded at the insistence of Nana Caymmi – yet an album that's all completely Joyce's own as well! The setting here is perfect – Joyce on vocals and guitar, with Tutty Moreno ... CD
Elza Soares (1974)
Tapecar/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974. New Copy
Standout samba from Elza Soares – a cracker of an album from the mid 70s, and exactly the best sort of record to get you started appreciating her talents! Elza's got a great blend here – some of the soulful elements of her samba contemporaries, mixed with a bit of the fullness of ... CD
Mudei De Ideia
RCA/Mr Bongo (UK), 1971. New Copy
An amazing bit of Brazilian funk – and the best album ever by this exciting soulful duo! The record's their first, and it's got a crackling intensity that you don't always find on their other albums – a groove that mixes hard samba with bass-heavy funk, with a sound that makes them one ... CD
Som Livre/Vinilisssimo (Spain), 1976. New Copy (reissue)
The earliest album we've ever seen from the legendary Djavan – and a record that's even better than some of his classics for Columbia! The album has a sound that's relatively spare – with Djavan's wonderful vocals backed by a small combo that mixes up samba and jazz – using ... LP, Vinyl record album
Embalo
Paladium/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Mid 60s. New Copy
A beautiful bit of lost bossa jazz from 60s Brazil – the only album we've ever seen by the P Trio, an enigmatic group recording in Belo Horizonte – hardly the same center of bossa nova as the beaches in Rio! The session's got a spare and lively feel – similar to work at the time ... CD
Tapecar/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1975. New Copy
Elza Soares grooves things nicely here – working in a samba mode that's relatively traditional, but which is also warmed up by arranger Ed Lincoln! Ed's backings here are different than those used on his famous organ albums of the 60s – but they've got the equal sort of soul and swing ... CD
Som Livre (Brazil), 1972. New Copy
Certainly one of the greatest albums by this excellent (and oft-overlooked!) group from the 70s! The band of young Bahians deliver a great mix of tracks tinged with bits of rock, funky samba, and even a few psychedelic influences – with alternating male and female vocals, and some excellent ... CD
Muse/Soul Brother (UK), 1972/1973. New Copy
A pair of amazing records from percussionist Dom Um Romao – back to back in a single set! The self-titled Dom Um Romao is an unbelievably fantastic album, and perhaps the greatest one that Dom Um Romao ever cut! Dom recorded this set in America with a blend of Brazilian and New York ... CD
Dom Um Romao
Muse, 1973. New Copy (reissue)
An unbelievably fantastic album, and perhaps the greatest one that Dom Um Romao ever cut! Dom recorded this set in America with a blend of Brazilian and New York musicians – creating an incredible sound that's unlike anything else we can think of – a rich harmony of Brazilian roots and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Spirit Of The Times
Muse, 1973. New Copy (reissue)
An incredible set of Brazilian jazz – one of the few albums that percussionist Dom Um Romao recorded as a leader, and sublime all the way through! The record's got a wonderful blend of funky fusion and Brazilian percussion – and features a group from two continents that includes Sivuca ... LP, Vinyl record album
Edu & Bethania
Elenco (Brazil), 1966. New Copy
A pivotal album in the careers of Edu Lobo and Maria Bethania – united in a series of unique duets for this classic Elenco session from 1966! The album pre-dates most of Bethania's other work, and is done in a style that's got all the best touches of Lobo's baroque post-bossa arranging style ... CD
Pau Brasil
Som Livre (Brazil), 1982. New Copy
An early moment of genius from the great Francis Hime – a relatively understated Brazilian singer at his start, but a talent who's gone on to have a huge impact on the more sophisticated side of his nation's music over the years! The approach here is maybe a bit in the Lo Borges camp – ... CD
Celia
Continental/Mr Bongo (UK), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A beautifully groovy album from Celia Reis – maybe the hippest set ever from this Brazilian singer who was equally at home in samba and bossa modes! Production and arrangements are by Arthur Verocai – which will give you an idea of the creativity that went into the record – as ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1977. New Copy Gatefold
Easily one of the greatest albums ever by Hermeto Pascoal – a masterpiece of free-thinking jazz that combines all of the best elements of his work! At one level, there's an experimental approach to instrumentation that really grabs the ears – but it's also wrapped around a key sense of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Polydor/Polysom (Brazil), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
One of the funkiest records ever from Brazilian soul legend Tim Maia – and a set that also has him singing a bit of English language lyrics too! The groove here is that classic Maia blend of Brazilian roots with American funk and soul – echoes of forro or samba in some of the rhythms, ... 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
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
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
Jardim Eletrico
Universal (Brazil), 1971. New Copy
Quite possibly the last truly sublime album ever recorded by Os Mutantes – a set that's a bit more rock-oriented then their first few, but still pretty revolutionary overall! The group have expanded to a quintet at this point, but haven't yet falling into the guitar-heavy groove of later ... 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
Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1969. New Copy (reissue)
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philips/Elemental (Spain), 1972. New Copy (reissue)
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philips/Elemental (Spain), 1969. New Copy (reissue)
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
Universal (Brazil), 1970. New Copy
The third album from the legendary Os Mutantes – part of the essential trio of sides released during the Tropicalia years! The record's got a sound that's tighter and a bit more straightforward than their previous efforts – stricter song formats, and styles that lean heavily on rockish ... 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
O Fino Do Fino
Polygram (Brazil), 1965. New Copy
One of the first great moments on record from the legendary Elis Regina – a singer with a hell of a voice, and one that had already been winning over huge crowds in Brazil – which is probably why this album, like most of her first, was done in a live setting! The vibe here is different ... CD
Uns
Philips/Universal (Brazil), 1983. New Copy
An extremely poetic little set from Caetano Veloso – very personal, and with some nice play with language on some of the album's best tracks – almost recalling his best intimate moments of the 70s! A few tracks are a bit more upbeat – with keyboards and a bit more electricity ... CD
Capa Provisoria (180 gram pressing)
Universal/Polysom (Brazil), 2018. New Copy
Beautiful work from Tribalistas – that groundbreaking group forged from three Brazilian stars who rose in the 90s – Arnaldo Antunes, Marisa Monte, and Carlinhos Brown – who somehow found a perfect way to come together, and make their music even more special as a trio! We've ... LP, Vinyl record album
Arthur Verocai
Mr Bongo (UK), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Sweet and jazzy pop from early 70s Brazil – a great little album that we'd rank with our favorites by Marcos Valle and Edu Lobo! Arthur Verocai isn't nearly as well-known as those two, but he works in a similar territory – taking jazz, large arrangements, and nice touches of electric ... LP, Vinyl record album
RSTUVXZ
Pommelo (Brazil), 2018. New Copy
Fantastic work from one of the most creatively consistent talents in Brazilian music – and a record that really hangs on to all the early genius that Arnaldo Antunes brought to his music! The sense of language here is almost enough to make us love the record – the way that Antunes ... CD
When It Was Done
A&M/CTI (Japan), 1968. New Copy
An amazing leap forward for the incredible Walter Wanderley – a record that has him mixing his earlier bossa groove with the wider vision of late 60s A&M/CTI – supported by an amazing cast of American and Brazilian artists! The vibe is wonderful from the very first note – a ... CD
