Antonio Carlos Jobim

Wave
CTI/A&M, 1967. New Copy
CD...$5.99 14.98
A stunning mix of talents that brings the heavenly piano and guitar of Antonio Carlos Jobim into play with the lush, but light arrangements of Claus Ogerman – a swirling mix of post-bossa loveliness that redefines Jobim's sound, and opens up new avenues for exploration in sound! The ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Brazil), 1974. New Copy
CD...$3.99 14.99
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

Jongo Trio

Jongo Trio (1972)
EMI/Odeon (Brazil), 1972. New Copy
CD...$3.99 14.99
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

Jose Roberto Bertrami

Jose Roberto Trio
Farroupilha/Far Out (UK), 1966. New Copy
Very early work from Jose Roberto Bertrami – the keyboardist who rose to fame with Azymuth in the 70s, but who's working here in an all-acoustic bossa mode! In keeping with Bertrami's later talent for an unusual groove, the album's got a feel that's slightly different than the other bossa ... 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

Os Tatuis (Jose Roberto Bertrami)

Os Tatuis
Farroupilha/Far Out (UK), 1965. New Copy
A really early moment of greatness from the young Jose Roberto Bertrami – the legendary keyboardist who'd soon rise to fame in Azymuth, stepping out here in a sweet bossa jazz combo from the 60s! Bertrami handles the arrangements, and delivers lots of piano lines too – and the group ... CD
CBS/Lion, 1971. New Copy
CD...$4.99 14.99
Post-Tropicalia work from Leno – a Brazilian singer who'd worked as part of a duo during the Jovem Guarda years, but who really sounds great here on his own! The style's a bit more straightforward rock than the Brazilian sound of a few years back – a bit fuzzy and compressed at times, ... CD
Som Maior/Vampi Soul (Spain), 1965. New Copy (reissue)
A rarely early bossa recording from Hermeto Pascoal – heard here on both piano and flute, and working in a pre-Quarteto Novo trio alongside a young Airto Moreira on drums! The sound is much more conventionally bossa than any of Hermeto's later work – but still filled with a tremendous ... LP, Vinyl record album
Far Out (UK), 2016. New Copy (reissue)
The legendary Azymuth rises from the ashes – on this, their first record after the passing of keyboardist Jose Roberto Bertrami – with a sound that takes us back to the amazing cosmic funk of their first few albums in the 70s! The new keyboardist, Kiko Continentino, has a sound that's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hermeto Pascoal

Planetario Da Gavea
Far Out (UK), 1981. New Copy 2LP
A never-issued performance from this legendary Brazilian musician – a live concert that's a perfect addition to his tremendous records from the same stretch in time! As with some of his best material of the 70s, Hermeto's working here in a style that begins in jazz, but quickly moves into ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ana Mazzotti

Ana Mazzotti (1977)
GTA/Far Out (UK), 1977. New Copy
One of two incredible albums from the lovely Ana Mazzotti – a 70s Brazilian singer who could effortlessly blend fusion and soul, Brazilian rhythms and funk – working here with plenty of help from Jose Roberto Bertrami of Azymuth! In fact, the record has a vibe that's a lot like the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rozenblit/Audio Clarity (UK), 1967. New Copy (reissue)
A fantastic early album from Jorge Ben – and one that's also a bit obscure, given that it was one of the few that he didn't cut for Philips Records during the first decade of his career! The album's one of Jorge's most upbeat, most lively – with the kind of ebullient mix of samba and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Astrud Gilberto

Astrud Gilberto Now
Perception/Octave (Japan), 1972. New Copy
Killer work by Astrud Gilberto – very different than her Verve sides of the 60s! The album was produced by Astrud, arranged by Deodato – and has that wonderful warm full jazz feel of her classic album on CTI, but also a bit more like some of the funky work of Jorge Ben at the time ... CD

Azymuth

Fenix
Far Out (UK), 2016. New Copy
The legendary Azymuth rises from the ashes – on this, their first record after the passing of keyboardist Jose Roberto Bertrami – with a sound that takes us back to the amazing cosmic funk of their first few albums in the 70s! The new keyboardist, Kiko Continentino, has a sound that's ... CD
Milestone/Far Out (UK), 1979. New Copy
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!

Bruno Berle

No Reino Dos Afetos
Far Out (UK), 2022. New Copy
A really lovely little record – one that feels like an instant classic in the world of MPB – the sort of long-overdue new release by a Brazilian artist that we hope we'll be hearing plenty from in years to come! As with the elite list of our Brazilian favorites of the past 20 years, ... CD
Odeon/Polysom (Brazil), 1973. New Copy (reissue)
A gem of a record – one we wouldn't part with for anything! Joao Donato's best known as one of the founding fathers of bossa nova – better known for his 60s work over the years, than he was for 70s electric work like this. Fortunately, international groove hounds picked up on the ... LP, Vinyl record album
EMI/Polysom (Brazil), 1972. New Copy (reissue)
An incredible album from Lo Borges – one of the best singer/songwriters on the Brazilian scene of the 70s! Borges first burst into the spotlight for his work on the Club Da Esquina album by Milton Nascimento – and his work as part of Milton's "corner club" really helped shape ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1969. New Copy (reissue)
Heady heady work from the legendary Gal Costa – caught here right at her early best, smack dab in the middle of the Tropicalia years!

Continental/Polysom (Brazil), 1973. New Copy (reissue)
One of the most legendary albums from groundbreaking Brazilian music pioneer Tom Ze – and a record that introduces itself with an equally legendary cover image! (Hint: that's not an eyeball on the front.) Ze had already been recording a bit by the time of this record – but this set is ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mad About Records (Portugal), 1981. New Copy (reissue)
An incredible bit of Brazilian jazz from the start of the 80s – and like so many of the best records from that scene, a set that's not easy to describe in more familiar modes! There's electric instrumentation in the lineup, with some especially nice guitar – but the record's not a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Alceu Valenca

Molhado De Suor
Vampi Soul (Spain), 1974. New Copy (reissue)
Beautifully rootsy work from singer Alceu Valenca – done with a nicely northern Brazil sound that involves plenty of acoustic percussion, guitar, and nice use of flute and craviola! The style here is almost a sophistication of earlier forro modes – done in a style that has traces of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Milton Nascimento

Maria Maria
Far Out (UK), 1976. New Copy 2LP
Richly soulful work from Milton Nascimento – music created at the same time as his classic albums in the 70s – but as the soundtrack to a ballet, which makes for a nice change from the usual! The approach is similar to Milton's studio work, but maybe even a bit more heavenly too – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hugo & Osvaldo Fattoruso

La Bossa Nova De Hugo Y Osvaldo
Sommor (Spain), 1968. New Copy (reissue)
A brilliant bit of offbeat bossa from brothers Hugo and Osvaldo Fattoruso – the Uruguayan pair who later recorded in the US as fusion combo Opa, but who are heard here in a rare 1968 outing for Odeon in their homeland! The style here is far from the usual Brazilian bossa set of the 60s ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jorge Ben

Dadiva
Som Livre/Vampi Soul (Spain), 1983. New Copy (reissue)
A great bit of 80s soul from Jorge Ben – a record that has ol' Jorge looking a bit new wave on the cover, but which is filled with grooves that are every bit as strong as any of his late 70s work! The soul style is very firmly in place here – a bit more mainstream than before, but in a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tom Ze

Raridades
Warner (Brazil), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
A fantastic collection of rare work from the young Tom Ze – obscure tracks from 7" singles, compilations, and festival performances too – all brought together as a counterpart to his full length albums on the Continental and RGE labels! As singles, a few of these tracks are maybe ... CD
180g, 2022. New Copy
A wonderfully warm, easygoing sort of record – one that's maybe in that same territory when a classic Brazilian singer of the 70s might hit some great mellow moments, but still work with this subtle edge that really hints at deeper currents below the surface! Instrumentation is a mix of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Far Out (UK), 2022. New Copy
A really great remake of the Brazilian classic "O Ronco Da Cuica" – presented here with vocals from original writer/singer Joao Bosco – and done in a stretched-out, very jazzy take that runs for over nine minutes! Dudu Lima brings in plenty of bass, next to piano, percussion, ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Jose Roberto Bertrami

Jose Roberto Trio
Farroupilha/Far Out (UK), 1966. New Copy (reissue)
Very early work from Jose Roberto Bertrami – the keyboardist who rose to fame with Azymuth in the 70s, but who's working here in an all-acoustic bossa mode! In keeping with Bertrami's later talent for an unusual groove, the album's got a feel that's slightly different than the other bossa ... LP, Vinyl record album
RGS (Argentina), 1970. New Copy 2CD
Two rare sessions by Vinicius – back to back on one 2 CD set! CD one features a 1970 recording in Buenos Aires – with Maria Creuza and Toquinho. Creuza was at her best during the early 70s – and working here with the classic bossa team of poet Vinicius De Moraes and guitarist ... CD

Batida

Terra Do Sul
Timeless/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1987. New Copy
Maybe the most obscure album from Batida – a European combo from the 80s, and one with a strong specialty in Brazilian jazz! The vibe is nice and breezy at times, with a good mix of electric and acoustic elements that's like some of the similar 80s albums on the great Nabel label from ... CD

Flora Purim

If You Will
Strut (UK), 2022. New Copy
The first album in many years from legendary Brazilian singer Flora Purim – and a set that's maybe one of the best of her career – done in this soaring, free-spirited style that really takes us back to the qualities that always set Flora apart from the rest! Daughter Diana Purim sings ... CD

Antonio Carlos & Jocafi

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
Quartin/Far Out (Brazil), 1970. New Copy
CD...$8.99 16.99
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 ... CD

Rubens Bassini

Latino Fantastico
Far Out (UK), 1963. New Copy
The rare Latino Fantastico from Rubens Bassini – featuring a range of percussion and overall vibe that blends the feverishly rhythmic vibes his native Brazil with African, Cuban and South American styled numbers with ultra groovy exotica! Bassini is a master percussionist and he's backed by ... CD

Marcos Valle

Estatica
Far Out (UK), 2010. New Copy
CD...$8.99 16.99
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 ... CD
Philips/Water, 1971. New Copy
CD...$7.99 17.98
A rare British recording from Gilberto Gil – sung completely in English, and recorded while living in London, in political exile along with Caetano Veloso! The album's somewhat similar to Veloso's famous London album from 1971 – certainly in structure, as the backings are relatively ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2006. New Copy
CD...$7.99 16.99
A Brazilian tribute to football – but one that's given a distinctly London twist – as core rhythms by Wilson Das Neves, Dom Um Romao, and others are mixed up and augmented by Da Lata, Zero dB, Roc Hunter, Fauna Flash, and Osunlade! The album's got a depth and compelling quality that ... CD
Polydor/Light In The Attic, 1972. New Copy
CD...$6.99 15.98
A record filled with cover images that run from Richard Nixon to Elvis Presley, to Mick Jagger, Caetano Veloso, Chairman Mao, Jorge Ben, Jimi Hendrix, and Andy Warhol – and a set whose sound definitely seems to live up to such heady company from the 20th century! Erasmo Carlos is at his ... CD

Arthur Verocai

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

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

Mudei De Ideia
RCA/Mr Bongo (UK), 1971. New Copy (reissue)
An amazing bit of Brazilian funk – and the best album ever by this exciting soulful duo!

Hermeto Pascoal

Planetario Da Gavea
Far Out (UK), 1981. New Copy 2CD
A never-issued performance from this legendary Brazilian musician – a live concert that's a perfect addition to his tremendous records from the same stretch in time! As with some of his best material of the 70s, Hermeto's working here in a style that begins in jazz, but quickly moves into ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1966. New Copy
An amazing early album by Nara Leao – one that features mostly spare vocals and acoustic guitar, plus some additional percussion – coming off in a style that's halfway between the best 60s work of Geraldo Vandre and early albums by Joyce! Nara's vocals are incredible – really ... CD

Nara Leao

Nara (1964)
Elenco/Universal (Japan), 1964. New Copy
Incredible early bossa material from one of Brazil's greatest singers! The record is lively, yet sophisticated – with strong arrangements by Gaya and Moacir Santos, and a vocal approach by Nana that really moves past the sweeter sound of other bossa singers – into a mode that's rich ... CD
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
EMI/Polysom (Brazil), 2006. New Copy (reissue)
A real departure for Marisa Monte – an album of samba tunes done in mostly traditional modes! The style here is often simple and classic – bits of guitar, percussion, cavaquinho, and slight use of keyboards to warm things up a bit – but mostly in a way that allows for the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1974. New Copy (reissue)
A wild solo project from Rita Lee – done after the breakup of Os Mutantes, and offered up almost as some sort of commentary on mainstream rock in the 70s! There's a much more straightforward approach to the music here – a sometimes-glammy sound that's echoed by the band's space-style ... LP, Vinyl record album

Erlon Chaves

Procura-Se Uma Virgem
CID/Mad About Records (Portugal), 1971. New Copy
One of the grooviest albums we've ever heard from Erlon Chaves – a Brazilian arranger who got his start in the bossa generation, later did some more traditional music – but here explodes with this great fusion of European and Brazilian soundtrack styles! The record's credited to the ... CD
