Goma Gringa (Brazil), 2016. New Copy
A killer collection of contemporary underground sounds from Brazil – not the kind of bigger pop that usually filters over here from the world music market – but instead a range of really well-chosen tracks that beautifully illustrate a new wave of creativity in the city of Sao Paulo! ...

MPS (Germany), 1973. New Copy Gatefold
One of Baden Powell's grooviest albums ever – a brilliant blend of his bossa roots with the freer 70s grooves of MPS! The album follows the mode of some of his other European recordings, but is still a bit different – in that the overall sound is a bit freer than before, with tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album

Polydor/Oficial Arquivos, 1971. New Copy
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, ... CD

Tim Maia (1970)
Polydor/Oficial Arquivos, 1970. New Copy
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 ... CD

Som Livre/Far Out (UK), 1975. New Copy
One of the sweetest electric records to come from 70s Brazil – the fabulous first effort from the Azymuth trio, and work that's hardly been matched again! Although the group here have plenty of the warm keyboard touches of their more famous later work, they're also moving in territory that's ... CD

Virgin Land
Salvation/King (Japan), 1974. New Copy
A great little fusion set from Airto – recorded in a mode that's a great bridge between his acoustic roots and some of his smoother albums in years to come! The sound has some key electric elements here – bits of bass, guitar, and keyboards – but there's still a strongly acoustic ... CD

Maria Fumaca
Atlantic/Mr Bongo (UK), 1977. New Copy
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 ... CD

Solar/Mr Bongo (UK), 1974. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
A legendary lost album from Brazilian songwriters/multi-instrumentalists Lula Cortes and Ze Ramalho – recorded in Brazil in the mid 70s – blending avant psychedelia, rugged acoustic rhythms, and an enormous free spirit with delicate melodic touches and lilting jazzy elements! As is the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Som Livre/Polysom (Brazil), 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Wild! This lost Mutantes LP fits in between Mutantes E Seus Cometas and the Mutantes Ao Vivo LP – and like the latter, it's got a very progressive feel! The band has changed membership (Rita Lee's no longer in the group), and it's clear that they've been listening to a lot of Yes – as ... LP, Vinyl record album

Brazilian Scene
El (UK), Early 60s. New Copy
Not the entire Brazilian scene – but a sweet little set with some wonderful bossa numbers! About half the record features the initial album recorded by Ze Maria – the great Tudo Azul, a lost bossa organ classic – and a set that features some vocals by Jorge Ben! The album's a ... CD

Friends From Rio 2014
Far Out (UK), 2014. New Copy
One of the best records in years from the mighty Far Out label – and a set that really takes the imprint back to its roots! The name of the record echoes the first Friends From Rio session that launched Far Out almost two decades ago – and like that classic, this one's a collaborative ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Bossa Tres
Audio Fidelity, 1963. New Copy (reissue)
Amazing bossa jazz from one of Brazil's best combos! The Bossa Tres were led by dynamic pianist Luis Carlos Vinhas – an incredibly strong talent who was as great an arranger as he was a piano player – and on this early session, he's at his most firey, really flowing out with tremendous ...

Os Orixas
Sigia/Mr Bongo (UK), 1978. New Copy
A rootsy set with a jazzy vibe – a set that blends the wonderful vocals of Eloah with some heavy percussion, soaring horns, and other great instrumental touches – all in a blend of modes that's pretty darn unique! The album might belong in the school of samba, but it's got a much more ... LP, Vinyl record album

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
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Polydor, 1972. New Copy (reissue)
One of the hardest rocking albums ever cut by Os Mutantes – a record that's got a slightly ironic take on rock and roll styles of the time – still performed with the sense of drama and humor that always made the band so great! Rita Lee and Arnaldo Baptista are still in the group at ... LP, Vinyl record album

SP 73
Continental/Mr Bongo (UK), 1973. New Copy
Moody instrumental magic from Hareton Salvanini – an artist with an Italian sounding name, and an approach that reminds us of some of the hippest composers of the sound library and film score scene in Italy during the 70s! The album's all instrumental, and is almost a soundtrack for a film ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Odeon/Light In The Attic, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
One of Marcos Valle's most strangely beautiful albums – a set that really his him stepping off strongly from his bossa nova years – really moving into mindblowing music with a range of styles that's simply incredible! There's definitely a bit of bossa at the core, but the larger ... LP, Vinyl record album

Previsao Do Tempo
Odeon/Light In The Attic, 1973. New Copy
An insanely wonderful album that will always remain one of the all-time favorites of the Dusty Groove staff! This beautiful batch of tracks by Brazilian singer/songwriter Marcos Valle has him pushing waaaay past his bossa work of the 60s – into a cool 70s mix of electronics and sexy scoring, ... CD
