Batucada Fantastica
Musidisc (Brazil), Mid 60s. Very Good+
Wonderful "Batucada Fantastica" work from Luciano Perrone – with lots of short hard percussion tracks all linked together with good echoey production that makes the whole thing sound a bit "fantastica"! The album's got a fairly straight percussion sound, but the ... LP, Vinyl record album

La Banda Del Sole
Philips/Radici (Italy), 1978. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A wonderful blend of Italian jazz and Brazilian inspiration – served up by percussionist Toni Esposito with a warmly electric vibe! The album's an Italian one, but it's got a groove that reminds us of our favorite Brazilian fusion from the period – a criss-crossing of cultural modes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Aquarela Brasileira 6

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Odeon/El (UK), 1959. New Copy
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

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

Elenco/El (UK), 1964/1966. New Copy
One of the greatest collections of work we've ever seen from Quarteto Em Cy – a CD that features their entire Som Definitivo album from 1964, plus 18 more bonus tracks pulled from two other albums! Som Definitivo is an incredible album – one in which the Brazilian female harmony ... CD

Sol Do Meio Dia
ECM, 1977. Near Mint-
Spare European work from Egberto Gismonti – a set that's different than his fuller earlier work from Brazil, but still pretty compelling overall! Gismonti's playing here with a group of familiar ECM artists – mixing his own piano, guitar, and percussion lines with soprano sax from Jan ... LP, Vinyl record album

Audio Fidelity, 1962. Near Mint-
Essential reissue of the legendary 1962 Bossa Nova concert at Carnegie Hall. The concert is legendary not only because it was a bit of a disaster (according to legend, just about nobody got paid!), but also because it brought together a huge amount of Brazilian talent on one stage, and premiered ...

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
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
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
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Refazenda
Warner/Bomba (Japan), 1975. New Copy
One of the funkiest albums you'll ever hear from Gilberto Gil – a really cool record that's done in the same sort of samba soul style that Jorge Ben was using in the 70s – with similarly wonderful results! The rhythms are great – a really compelling mix of rootsy elements and ... 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

Softly
Capitol, 1965. New Copy (reissue)
A lost bossa classic from Wanda De Sah – aka Wanda Sa, the wife of Edu Lobo, and a singer who worked with Sergio Mendes in his pre-Brasil 66 days! The album's got a wonderfully laidback feel – languid, yet jazzy, with the feel of some of Astrud Gilberto's best work on Verve, yet with ... LP, Vinyl record album

RSVC
Adventure Music, 2013. Used
One of the warmest, most intimate records we've ever heard from Vinicius Cantuaria – and one of the most beautiful too! The set's got Vinicius on vocals and guitar, in the company of guitarist Ricardo Silveira, and no other instrumentation at all – which makes for a wonderfully airy ... CD

Le Trio Camara
Saravah/Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1968. New Copy
Bossa jazz from the French scene of the 60s – an ultra-hip album issued on the legendary Saravah Records label – and one that's one of the best illustrations of the label's way of blending together jazz and other global styles! The group here is a trio, with Fernando Martins on some ... CD
