Philips/Doxy (Italy), Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)
Amazing stuff! Jorge Ben never made a bad record in the 60s – and this is one of his best! The album's filled with tight jaunty numbers that mix big band samba arrangements with quickly strummed guitar, and Jorge's wonderfully raw vocals – all classic stuff for Jorge, but a style that ...

Hitland (Italy), 1960s. New Copy
Easily one of the best in this excellent series – as the package combines familiar bossa numbers with rarer, more obscure ones – going for a sweet jazzy groove we totally love! Getting past the nudie cover, the set's got a level of quality that's totally high – some killer tunes ... CD

Matita Pere
Polygram (Brazil), 1973. Used
Brazilian issue of an album that was released by MCA in America, and which had (in America) a primitive painting on the cover, with the word Jobim in handwriting. Features one of the best versions of "Aqua De Marco" ever, done up in these haunting blue chords, backed by great baroque ... CD

Fontana (Brazil), 1964. Near Mint-
Beautiful airy bossa! This album's a 1964 session of straight piano bossa tracks by Deodato, with production by Roberto Quartin – and a sound that's a lot more mellow and fragile than his other records from the time! Deodato is amazingly restrained in his playing, and sticks to only piano ... LP, Vinyl record album

Samba Para Ti & More
Deja Vu (Italy), Early 70s. Used
Sweet Brazilian grooves from Italy – with a very easy approach! The feel here is somewhere in the mode of Sergio Mendes, and somewhere in the vein of the European take on bossa in the late 60s – done with a bit of an easy listening style, and sweeter orchestrations than you might hear ... CD

Impulso!
Ubatuqui (Spain), 1964/1998. Used
Incredible early work by Deodato! This record's got the maestro picking up the Hammond organ, and playing with a samba/bossa group – for a sound that's similar to Walter Wanderley's Brazilian recordings, but which have a bit more going on in the instrumental department – thanks to some ... CD

Elenco/Polygram (Japan), 1963. Used
One of the greatest Baden Powell albums of the 60s – a beautiful little set that's co-crafted by the bossa guitarist and Brazilian drummer Jimmy Pratt! The arrangements are a bit unusual for Powell – and feature lots of small combo woodwinds grooving around the tight percussion of ... CD

Fontana (Brazil), 1970s/1985. Near Mint-
A collection of 12 songs composed by Bosco and Blanc and sung by Elis Regina – lifted from various albums that Elis recorded for Philips during the 70s. The songwriting is excellent, and we dare say that Elis does a better job with the material that Bosco himself! Tracks include "Dois ... LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Rare Groove (Italy), 1960s/1970s. Used
Stupid title, but a nice little set of grooves that takes material from both Brazilian and American bossa sources – in a manner that's similar to the wonderful Trip To Brazil compilation we've stocked for years! A few of these are sure to be ones you have, but there's also a huge amount of ... CD

Bomba (Japan), 1964. Used
Fantastic! This is one of the all-time Brazilian jazz classics of the 60's – and one of the most sought after bossa albums from that time! Pianist Tenorio Jr leads a crack ensemble through some fantastic tracks – as warm and soulful as they are tight and angular, a perfect summation ... CD

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

Nascente (UK), 1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s. New Copy 3CD
A well-titled name for this sweet little package – a 3CD set that brings together a heck of a lot of Brazilian musical styles – all with a range that really lives up to its promise! The set is different from the older Beginners Guide To Brazil – and offers up a more contemporary ... 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

Feminina
Odeon/EMI (Japan), 1980. New Copy
Beauty, pure beauty – one of Joyce's greatest albums – and maybe the first record we'd point to for anyone interested in her music! The set's an incredible blend of vocals, acoustic guitar, and these lightly gentle arrangements – all at this new level of expression that still ... CD

Siria (180 gram pressing with download)
Analog Africa (Germany), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy Gatefold
An incredible compilation of material by Mestre Cupijo and the musicians of Cameta – the Amazonian town where the Siria style was born! The always-great Analog Africa label turns to Brazil for this one – a nice step after their rich range of African reissues – given the nature ... LP, Vinyl record album

Premier (Italy), 1960s/1970s. New Copy
18 tracks – most of them rare Brazilian ones, and all with a great mix of jazz, bossa, and groovy rhythms! The sound is very mod and 60s – and there's more than a few here that we haven't seen reissued for a while. Titles include "Ponteio" by Som Psicodelico, "Balaio&quo ... CD

Wave
CTI/A&M, 1967. Used
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
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Philips (Brazil), 1976. Near Mint-
Weird album of solo piano stuff by the brilliant keyboardist from the Tamba Trio. Luiz runs through tracks by a wide variety of Brazilian composers, including Joao Donato, Edu Lobo, Egeberto Gismonti, Johnny Alf, and Radames Gnattali. Some cuts are spare and "out", some are more jazzy. ... LP, Vinyl record album
