Rozenblit (Brazil), 1967. Near Mint-
Great great great early stuff from Jorge Ben! He cut this album right on the heels of his big hits "Mas Que Nada" and "Chove Chuva", and the record's filled with peppy, jazzy, samba-sounding tracks, sung by Ben in a deep soulful voice. The set's a perfect bridge between the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Art & Voices
El (UK), 1950s. New Copy
Not the mid 60s album Arte/Vozes by the great Brazilian vocals combo – a compilation of dreamy material recorded in the mid 50s – in a style that brings breezy Brazilian and American vocal group influences together in a sublime way! The group harmonies and the lead parts are sweet as ... 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

Luaka Bop, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Although there's been a few "best of" collections out already by this legendary Brazilian rock group – this volume still stands as the most nicely-selected batch of tracks, and it comes complete with great liner notes that help you really navigate and understand their music. There's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mr Bongo (UK), 1970s. New Copy
70s psychedelia from the northeastern state of Pernambuco, Brazil – incredible stuff that combines rawly percussive tropical sounds with a world of psychedelic creativity and possibilities – one of the best compilations ever put together by Mr Bongo! Lula Cortes was a pivotal figure ... CD

Certain Smile, Certain Sadness (UK pressing)
Verve/Rev-Ola (UK), 1966. New Copy
Kind of a dream combination in one little album – especially if you dig breezy bossa from the 60s! Back in 1966, Verve Records got the great idea of teaming up its (then) biggest Brazilian imports – vocalist Astrud Gilberto and organist Walter Wanderley – both of whom were ... CD

Elektra, 1977. Very Good-
One of the funkiest albums Sergio Mendes ever recorded – a monster of a record that's filled with enough dancefloor groovers to have had a big impact on the soul market in the US! There's still elements of the older Mendes modes – especially in the way the vocals float nicely through ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stillness
A&M, 1970. Very Good- Gatefold
A real classic from Sergio Mendes – probably most famous for its funky bits! The record pushes past the formula of the earlier Brasil 66 albums, and goes for a more sophisticated approach that adds in some sweet electric moments, more complicated grooves, and an overall sound that's even ...

BR3
EMI (Brazil), 1971. Used
Funky soul from Toni Tornado – one of the first talents in Brazil's samba soul generation of the 70s! Toni's got a style that's a lot like early work by Tim Maia – a blend of American funk and soul, with traces of some of the other Brazilian arranging styles that were popular at the ... CD

Pardon My English (with bonus tracks)
Discobertas (Brazil), 1967. New Copy
A very groovy record with a very fitting title – especially once you hear the lyrics of the tunes! The Girls From Bahia are actually the Quarteto Em Cy – one of the best harmony groups of the bossa era, and famous for classic recordings on the Elenco label – but working here in a ... CD

Seduzir
EMI (Brazil), 1981. Near Mint- Gatefold
Spare, simple work from Djavan – the kind of soulful set that made him one of the most dramatic mainstream talents in Brazil at the start of the 80s – and one of the few of his generation to reach out to a larger global market! The album's got a very Milton Nascimento sort of vibe ... LP, Vinyl record album

MM
EMI (Brazil), 1989. Near Mint-
The first album by Marisa, and one that's got a more straight-ahead feel than some of her later work. The record is a live recording (odd for a first album!) that has Marisa backed by a nice group that includes Roberto Alves on piano – and the set list includes a version of Os Mutantes' ...

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Tempo Presente
Philips (Brazil), 1980. Near Mint-
Wonderfully warm electric work from Edu Lobo – a sublime late 70s set that we'd stack right up there with our favorite albums of the time by artists like Joyce, Marcos Valle, or Joao Donato! As with all three of those artists, Edu uses some 70s electric elements to really transform his sound ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eu Quero Ver
Eldorado (Brazil), Late 80s. Used
One of Leny Andrade's later albums – a mixture of jazz and bossa, with a sparkling modern edge, but still performed with small combo backing! There's electric keyboards on most of the cuts, dancing along with Leny's vocals in a breezy mode that's a bit like 80s work by Tania Maria on Concord ... CD

Sony (Brazil), 1988. Used
A lovely set that features the vocals of Maria Bethania in the musical hands of Caetano Veloso! Caetano sings a bit, and so does Milton Nascimento. CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Sony (Brazil), 2009. Used
The set's definitely a "multishow" from Ana Carolina – especially when you consider the range of guest stars included – a wonderful lineup that includes Seu Jorge, Roberto Sa, Maria Bethania, Angela Ro Ro, Gilberto Gil, and Zizi Possi! The music's in a gentle blend of soul ... CD

Soyo
Six Degrees, 2015. New Copy
Really lovely work from Dom La Nena, a singer who already won us over with her debut, but really captivates us here on her second set! The music has this personal, almost private style that echoes the image on the cover – spare, subtle tunes recorded in Lisbon and Paris – with an ... CD

Per Un Pugno Di Samba
RCA/BMG (Brazil), 1970. New Copy
An amazing record – one that stands as one of Chico Buarque's greatest from the 70s! The set was recorded in Italy in 1970 – and features Chico singing lead vocals over backings handled by Ennio Morricone – all in a style that's a perfect blend of MPB with the best elements of ... CD
