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
CID/Far Out (UK), 1978. New Copy (reissue)
One of THE Brazilian funk classics of the 70s – the debut album of soulful singer Emilio Santiago! The sound is a wonderful blend of samba, soul, and some of the electric jazzy riffing that was big in Brazil at the time, and which showed up in the styles of groups like Banda Black Rio or ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic/Polysom (Brazil), 1977. New Copy (reissue)
An incredible little record – and the set where it really all comes together for this legendary funky jazz group! Azymuth were already great on their debut, although maybe a little experimental at times – but here, they really find the soulful groove that later got them big fame on the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Esperanto (180 gram pressing)
Quartin/Far Out (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)
An incredible album of jazz tracks by one of Brazil's greatest reed players of the 70s – the mighty Victor Assis Brasil – a free-thinking spirit who really took Brazilian jazz in bold new directions at the time! The record shows Victor absorbing a lot of post-Coltrane influences, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Far Out (UK), 1976. New Copy
A never-issued album by the great Hermeto Pascoal – recorded in the space between his 70s classics Slaves Mass and A Musica Livre – and every bit as amazing as those classics! The music here is fluid, open, and a fantastic mix of jazz and all of Hermeto's new ideas about musical ... LP, Vinyl record album
Far Out (UK), 2010. New Copy
An incredible record from Marcos Valle – maybe our favorite-ever of his recent-revival years! The sound here is sublime – a warm blend of funky rhythms, bossa roots, and larger orchestrations – all very much in the spirit of those legendary albums that Valle recorded for ... 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
A Virgem De Saint Tropez
Fermata/Vinilisssimo (Spain), 1974. New Copy (reissue)
A totally wonderful little soundtrack – Brazilian in origin, but with lots of the lush, warm tones we love in 70s Italian erotic scores too! The style is definitely Brazilian, though – and modes run from some of the cooler, larger arrangements you'd hear from Marcos Valle – ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
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
Philips/Elemental (Spain), 1965. New Copy (reissue)
Brilliant early work from Jorge Ben – a set that shouldn't be confused with the US album of the same name, and which is one of Jorge's first few gems of the 60s! The album's got Ben stepping out with a slightly jazzier feel than on his debut – a style that's still heavily steeped in ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
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
Jorge Ben (1969)
Philips/Elemental (Spain), 1969. New Copy
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
Tam Tam Tam
Trunk (UK), 1958. New Copy (reissue)
Heavy rhythms from the Brazilian scene of the 50s – a set of grooves originally used to accompany a touring dance production, but a set of tracks that's gone on to have quite a life of its own! The music here isn't the cool bossa or spare samba you might expect – and instead has this ... LP, Vinyl record album
Maquina De Escrever Musica (Music Typewriter)
Hannibal/Luaka Bop, 2001. New Copy Gatefold
An incredible album from Moreno Veloso – the son of the famous Caetano, but an artist who's already very much his own man on this classic collaboration with the team of Kassin and Domenico! Moreno plays it cool on most of the record – singing in a spare setting that mixes acoustic ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve/Universal (Japan), 1962. New Copy
One of the earliest of the classic Verve bossa nova sessions of the 60s – and a wonderful showcase for the talents of guitarist Luiz Bonfa! Most of Bonfa's previous recordings were done in a very spare or solo mode – and this set makes a nice change by adding in some larger ... 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
Acabou Chorare
Som Livre/Mr Bongo (UK), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Disco Club
Atlantic/Mr Bongo (UK), 1978. New Copy
Not the throwaway disco you might expect – and instead, an excellent album in the 70s run of Brazilian soul giant Tim Maia – and one that provides a bit of a link to the legacy of his nephew Ed Motta in later years! The album's filled with uptempo tunes – as you'd expect from the ... CD
Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1976. New Copy (reissue)
A landmark recording that is one of Jorge Ben's best albums ever! The album is a perfect realization of the way that Jorge mixes Brazilian rhythms with choppy Afro grooves – and the result is a masterpiece that yeilded some of his biggest tracks ever. Included here is the great choppy funk ... 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
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
Edu & Tom
Polydor (Brazil), 1981. New Copy
An incredible later meeting by two of the most sophisticated musical talents of the bossa generation – and a record that's done in the same intimate, spare setting as Jobim's meeting with Elis Regina a few years before! Production is by bossa legend Aloysio De Oliveira – and the sound ... CD
Tribalistas (180 gram pressing)
EMI/Polysom (Brazil), 2002. New Copy
A groundbreaking collaboration from the start of the century – the union of three of Brazil's most important artists of the decade before – coming together in a mode that's even deeper than any of their previous albums as solo acts! There's clearly a Tropicalia inspiration taking place ... LP, Vinyl record album
Polydor/Polysom (Brazil), 1975. New Copy (reissue)
Fantastic work by this underdiscovered Brazilian talent! Hyldon was part of the 70s Brazilian soul and funk generation that included Tim Maia, Cassiano, and Toni Tornado – but he'd also absorbed a lot of the singer/songwriter influences of Caetano Veloso, who's laidback mid 70s style will ... LP, Vinyl record album
Embalo
RGE/Mr Bongo (UK), 1964. New Copy
A set that's maybe one of the greatest bossa jazz albums of all time – and a fantastic homegrown Brazilian effort that's quite different from the more commercial American bossa albums of the 60s! Tenorio Jr isn't just a hell of a pianist, he's a great writer and arranger too – one who's ... CD
Krishnanda
CBS/Mr Bongo (UK), 1968. New Copy (reissue)
A totally unique album from the Brazilian scene of the 60s – a set that was recorded right in the middle of the big Tropicalia years, but which has more of the earthier touches that would emerge in the Brazilian scene during the 70s! Yet there's also a sense of tight arrangement here too ... CD
Tom Ze (1970)
RGE/Mr Bongo (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)
One of Tom Ze's greatest records – and an album that proves that the Tropicalista spirit didn't die once Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil went into exile! The cover is a bit standard, in comparison to the artier look of other Tom Ze albums – but the sound is very forward-thinking, and ... 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
Qualquer Coisa
Philips/Elemental (Spain), 1975. New Copy
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 ... CD
Discobertas (Brazil), 1960s. New Copy 5CD
An amazing little box set – filled with 10 rare bossa nova albums from the Brazilian underground of the 60s – almost all of which we'd never heard before! The records here were mostly issued on small labels at the time – the kind of sets that never circulated widely outside of ... CD
Polydor/Polysom (Brazil), 1970. New Copy (reissue)
A legendary album! This previously unreleased album by Os Mutantes was supposed to be their breakthrough album to an English speaking market – but for years it's only been talked about in hushed whispers, and has only been heard by a lucky few! The record was recorded in Paris in 1970 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Recanto
Bagual (Brazil), 2018. New Copy
A great little set from guitarist Yamandu Costa – one that follows in the legacy of previous albums of Brazilian guitar, but which also draws plenty of inspiration from the larger South American scene as well! Costa originally intended the set as a solo record, but soon found himself working ... CD
Tribalistas
EMI, 2002. New Copy
A groundbreaking collaboration from the start of the century – the union of three of Brazil's most important artists of the decade before – coming together in a mode that's even deeper than any of their previous albums as solo acts! There's clearly a Tropicalia inspiration taking place ... CD
Black Juniors
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1984. New Copy
A real obscurity from the Brazilian scene of the 80s – an album by a group who must have been one of the first hip hop acts to cut a record down there – working in a tight mix of old school styles and electro funk modes! There's more of a street soul approach overall – as ... CD
Ciclo
Universal (Brazil), 1983. New Copy
A nicely rootsy little album from Maria Bethania – recorded during a period when some of her music could often sound much fuller and more electric! The album's got subtle help from Toninho Horta, Dori Caymmi, and Guto Graca Mello – all of whom arrange Maria's vocals in a sophisticated ... 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
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
Cheganca
Verve/Universal (Japan), 1966. New Copy
Bossa nova meets organ jazz – a real classic from the great Walter Wanderley, recorded right on the heels of his famous Rain Forest album for Verve! This set's in a very similar format to that one – core trio grooving with organ, bass, and drums – sometimes augmented with added ... CD
Clareia
Far Out (UK), 2017. New Copy
Beautiful modern bossa from Sabrina Malheiros! Sabrina has always had a genuine feel for classic Brazilian soul – she's the daughter of Alex Malheiros of Azymuth, so samba jazz, funk and soul are in her genes – and she really soars on this one. All the songs on Clareia are originals, ... 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
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
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
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
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
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
Amendoim/Far Out (UK), 1981. New Copy (reissue)
A Brazilian duo with a really wonderful sound – one that manages to merge acoustic instrumentation, vocal harmonies, and some light electric touches – all with a sound that's both jazzy and folksy at the same time! Edu Passeto and Gui Tavares have this unique vibe that maybe reminds us ... LP, Vinyl record album
Favorite (France), 2018. New Copy
The first work in many many years from Roberto Di Melo – the fantastic funky singer from Brazil, who gave us one of our favorite samba soul records of the 70s! The sound here is great, and it's like the years haven't passed at all – as Di Melo's vocals get just the right sort of ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
