Joao Gilberto/Caetano Veloso/Gilberto Gil/Maria BethaniaBrasil (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1981. Used Gatefold ... $24.99
The best of Brazil, old and new – as Joao Gilberto meets up with a younger generation of Brazilian vocalists – Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, and Maria Bethania – all for a wonderful session of stripped-down bossa! The work is very much in Joao's best style of the early 70s – a back to basics return, handled with even more intimacy than before – with production by Gilberto, and some beautifully understated arrangements from Johnny Mandel! Tracks are all nice and long, and allow for lots of vocal interplay between the four singers on the set. Titles include "Cordeiro De Nana", "Aquarela Do Brasil", "Milagre", and "Bahia Com H". CD

Caetano VelosoAraca Azul ... CD
Polygram (Brazil), 1972. Used ... $11.99
One of the weirdest, wildest albums Caetano Veloso ever recorded – a highly experimental session that shows that his ties with the avant art world were still plenty strong on his return to Brazil! Despite a goofy cheeseball photo of Veloso on the cover in a bikini, the sound on this one is waaaaay out – with weird avant garde vocal bits, choppy instrumentation, and wild shifts in style that make his Tropicalia albums almost seem like pop hits! As usual, Caetano's vocals are superb, especially as he slides from experimental tunes into straighter songs – like the title cut "Araca Azul", and Milton Nascimento's "Cravo E Canela". Proof that the Brazilian intelligentsia was still alive and well in the post-Tropicalia years – with other titles that include "De Palavar Em Palavra", "Julia/Moreno", "Epico", "Viola Meu Bem", "De Conversa", and "Sugarcane Fields Forever".

Caetano VelosoCaetano Veloso (1967) ... CD
Polygram (Brazil), 1967. Used ... $9.99
One of the building blocks of the late 60s Tropicalia scene in Brazil – and a standout solo debut from the young Caetano Veloso! The album's got an approach that's as dynamic and trippy as its cover image might imply – the same amazing blend of sounds and styles you'd hear on contemporaneous records by Gal Costa or Os Mutantes – served up with similar wit, wisdom, and charm! Caetano's vocals are amazing throughout – filled with raspy power that goes beyond the barriers of language – and the production has loads of surprising elements tripping through the mix – some rootsy, some slightly orchestrated – but with a softer approach that resonates strongly with more psychedelic use of organ and guitar. The album's as powerful today as it was decades ago – an essential recording that holds up beautifully year after year! The kickoff track is "Tropicalia" (surprisingly enough!), and the album is a non-stop ride through gems like "Alegria, Alegria", "Onde Andaras", "Paisagem Util", "Ave Maria", and the groovy "Soy Loco Por Ti America", written by Gilberto Gil.

Caetano VelosoMeu Coco ... CD
Sony (Germany), 2022. New Copy ... $17.99 19.99
A really tremendous album from Caetano Veloso – one of the few artists from the 60s who just seems to continue to get better and better with age! And by that, we don't mean that this is an "aged" record – we mean that Veloso sounds as freshly creative as ever – unveiling a completely new sound, while still keeping true to his musical vision of recent decades – a stunning achievement that few other global artists could ever hope to match! The sound is sublime right from the very first note – a strong focus on Caetano's ability to craft a line with simple poetry, set to backings that are often relatively spare, but full of these interesting little touches – done in collaboration with musical partner Lucas Nunes, and featuring a fair bit of contributions from Moreno Veloso too. The set's strongly in that best tradition of less-is-more that marks the best recent work from both Veloso family members – and titles include "Meu Coco", "Ciclamen Do Libano", "Anjos Tronchos", "Enzo Gabriel", "Voce Voce", "Sem Samba Nao Da", "Cobre", and "GilGal".

Caetano VelosoNoites Do Norte ... CD
Universal (Japan), 2000. New Copy ... $13.99
A far-reaching album by Caetano – with a wide scope of sounds and influences, from tribal/ethnic percussion, to subtle jazzy backdrops, to guitar-driven numbers that hint at a brief return to rock music. The rich tapestry of themes and images are perfectly linked by Veloso's always-wonderful voice – impeccably rich-toned, with a sound that only seems to get better with age. To us, the record's his first really striking album since 1997's Livro – although it's got a lot more subtlety, in the manner of some of his mid 70s work, like Bicho or Joia. Titles include "Michelangelo Antonioni", "Zera A Reza", "13 De Maio", "Zumbi", "Meu Rio", and "Sou Seu Sabia". CD

Brazilian "greatest hits" comp of Caetano's work, with a majority of material from the late 70's and early 80's, but also with a few cuts from the late 60's Tropicalia years. Every cut's a winner, though – with the high high level of imagination that you'd expect from Caetano! Tracks include "Coisa Mais Linda", "Muito", "Menino Do Rio", "Superbacana", "Eclips Oculto", and "Soy Loco Por Ti, America". CD

Caetano Veloso & Chico BuarqueCaetano E Chico - Juntos E Ao Vivo ... CD
Polygram (Brazil), 1972. Used ... $4.99
A classic live set from two of the great C's of Brazilian music – Caetano Veloso and Chico Buarque, both recorded at a very influential time in their music! The image of both artists sitting alongside each other on the cover really captures the spirit of the set – as there's an intimate, personal feel to the music – despite the obviously large audience in the theater – and most numbers focus on guitar, just a bit of percussion, and vocals. Chico and Caetano sing duets on "Barbara" and "Voce Nao Entende Nada Cotidiano" – and Caetano sings solo on "Partido Alto", "Tropicalia", "Morena Dos Olhos D'Agua", "Rita/Esse Cara", and "Os Argonautas" – while Chico sings alone on "Bom Conselho", "Ana De Amsterdam", "Atras DA Porta", and "Janelas Abertas No 2".

Caetano Veloso & Gilberto GilBarra 69 ... CD
Polygram/Universal (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $6.99
A seminal live set that brings together two giants of the Tropicalia scene – Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil, recorded here in a rough-edged performance from 1969! The format has the artists alternating songs throughout the set, then coming together for a duet at the end – and the recording quality is oddly spotty – sounding much more like a bootleg than the higher end sound you'd expect from Philips. But that quality can easily be excused given not only the historical nature of the show, but also the incredible performances by both artists – easily at their most vibrant here, and pulling out an incredible response from the crowd! Rough, but great – an essential addition to the catalog of both artists – with tunes by Caetano that include "Cinema Olympia", "Atras Do Trio Eletrico", and "Superbacana"; by Gil that include "Frevo Rasgado" and "Domingo No Parque", and a duet medley that features "Alegria, Alegria", "Hino Do Esporte Clube Bahia", and "Aquele Abraco".

Caetano Veloso & Gilberto GilTropicalia 2 ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1993. Used ... $4.99
Well, it's not the 60s anymore – but this is still a wonderful album that reunites Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil in the spirit of their Tropicalia years – done in a style that shows that creative invention was still alive in MPB during the 90s! There's echoes here of modes to come by artists like Arnaldo Antunes, Lenine, or Chico Science – all of whom are clearly influenced by the spirit of Veloso and Gil. Acoustic guitars mix with rhythm samples and abstract production – and Caetano and Gil's vocals shine as wonderfully as ever – possibly even more so, given the warmth that comes from their age. Titles include "Cinema Novo", "Nossa Gente", "Dada", "Aboio", "Baiao Atemporal", "As Coisas", "Rap Popcreto", and a version of Jimi Hendrix's "Wait Until Tomorrow". CD

✨✧ Caetano Veloso & Gal CostaDomingo ... CD
Polydor (Brazil), 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Beautiful early duets from Caetano Veloso and Gal Costa – much more of a bossa-styled album than any of the late 60s Tropicalia albums from the pair! The set's got a really wonderful sort of feel – bossa at some level, but also with some of the gentle darkness that Caetano and Gal would bring to Brazilian popular music more strongly in the next few years – an approach that's somewhat subtle, but often somewhat different than albums of the generation on labels like Elenco or Forma. The orchestrations are somewhat full, but never too much so – and tracks include a fair bit of early original compositions by Caetano. Titles include "Candeias", "Zabele", "Um Dia", "Avarandado", "Maria Joana", "Onde Eu Nasci Passa Um Rio", "Coracao Vagabundo", and "Quem me Dera". CD

✨✧ Caetano VelosoMuitos Carnavais ... LP
Philips (Brazil), 1977. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A lively album that mixes Caetano's rich songwriting style with a hard percussive base – a more grooving approach than usual – which gives the tracks a fast jumpy feel, and gives even more power to Caetano's strong vocals! There's some slight post-Tropicalia touches at time – a few psych-ish moments, with good guitars that get noisy in parts – but the overall vibe also stretches out with a warm MPB glow as well – showing the maturation of Veloso's music in the 70s, and his strong step from the underground to a reigning spot over all of Brazilian music! As with other Veloso records of the time, the album's impossible to describe in words – but simply mindblowing in its musical power – a unique bit of brilliance from one of the true geniuses of pop music in the 20th century. Tracks include "Um Frevo Novo", "Chuva, Suor E Cerveja", "Cara a Cara", "Qual e, Baiana?", and "La Barca". LP, Vinyl record album

Some of the most beautiful work ever recorded by Caetano Veloso – an album that carries on the style of English language lyrics used on his session in exile in 1971, but which also introduces him back to the world of Brazilian popular music! The album's a great transition for Veloso – a set that's served up with some of the newly personal qualities his music developed in London, but which still has a good ear for experimentation and keeping things interesting. Titles include the wonderful "Nine Out Of Ten" – a haunting tune about his time in exile – plus "Neolithic Man", "Nostalgia", "Triste Bahia", "It's A Long Way", and "You Don't Know Me".

Philips/Universal (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An album of pure genius – easily one of the greatest Brazilian albums ever, and a landmark set from the Tropicalia years! There's a brilliance here that's hard to describe accurately – quite possibly because the young Caetano Veloso is experimenting with so many new ideas, the album explodes with fresh energy on each new track! Offbeat bossa runs into weird production effects, subtle psychedelia, and heartfelt singer/songwriter material – all arranged by the mighty Rogerio Duprat, and featuring guest work from Gilberto Gil on guitar. The range of work here is tremendous – from the political "Empty Boat" to the fantastical "Lost in the Paradise", through other classics that include "Irene", "Os Argonautas", "Carolina", "Alfomega", "Chuvas De Verao", "Objeto Nao Identifcado", "Atras Do Trio Eletrico", and "Marinheiro So". This Japanese CD version includes 4 bonus tracks: "Torno A Repetir", "Cinema Olympia", "Hino Do Esporte Clube Bahia" and "Charles, Anjo 45". CD

Philips/Universal (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $9.99
A really wonderful album from Quarteto Em Cy – the Brazilian vocal quartet who first rose to prominence during the bossa nova years, but soon moved into even more sophisticated material during the 70s! The approach of this set is telegraphed in the title – as the group take on songs penned by Caetano Veloso, Milton Nascimento, Ivan Lins, and Gonzaguinha – the new MPB generation of the 70s, whose music turns out to be perfect for the growing talents of the girls – topped off with some beautiful arrangements from Octavio Burnier, whose work really rises to the level of the vocals! The whole thing's great – a magnificent journey in sound – and titles include "Idolatrada", "Barco Fantasma", "Antes De Seja Tarde", "O Ultimo Trem", "Um Dia", "Ponta De Areia", "Gira Girou", "Ciranda Menina", and "Abandonado".

Moreno VelosoEvery Single Night ... CD
Corbett vs. Dempsey, 2021. New Copy ... $12.99 15.00
Maybe the most personal, most evocative album we've ever heard from Brazilian singer Moreno Veloso – a set that's summed up wonderfully by its title, as these are songs that Veloso sung to his children at night during the darkest months of 2020! The record features just vocals and guitar – but as with his father Caetano in such a setting, Moreno actually seems to make more with less – allowing us to hear him in a way that's maybe even more up-close than ever before –with the mix of emotional currents that you'd get on the best bossa recordings of this nature – even though Veloso is far beyond bossa with this music! Most tracks are penned by others, but given these fantastic new interpretations – and titles include "Fazenda", "Unga Dorme Nesse Frio", "Luna Caprese", "Tigresa", "Noche De Ronda", "Normelia", and "Tres Da Madrugada".

An incredible album from Moreno Veloso – the son of the famous Caetano, but an artist who's already very much his own man on this classic collaboration with the team of Kassin and Domenico! Moreno plays it cool on most of the record – singing in a spare setting that mixes acoustic guitar and percussion with some occasional electronics, sounding best on the tracks that are the most stripped-down, because if he does share one thing with his father, it's a warmly intimate voice, one that will grab you right away! The electronics are all a bit ok, but it's the voice that sells this one – and it fortunately comes to the forefront on most of the record. Tracks include "Sertao", "Deusa Do Amor", "Esfinge", "Rio Longe", "Nenhuma", "I'm Wishing", "Das Partes", and "Para Xo". CD

Tremendous work from an artist whose talents never dim over the years – and even then, a set that's quite possibly one of Chico's best in many many years! The record has a depth and complexity that's really wonderful – like the best of Caetano Veloso's more sophisticated work of the past decade – and Chico's working here with arranger Luiz Claudio Ramos in a set of tracks that mix rootsy instrumentation with more complicated phrasing – a style that carries echoes of some of Edu Lobo's best 70s material, and which, like that, has a genre-less quality that's all its own! Chico's original lyrics and raspy vocals would be enough to make this record great, but the instrumentation takes it to a space that's even more special. Tracks include "Suburbio", "Outros Sonhos", "As Atrizes", "Renata Maria", "Leve", "Sempre", "Imagina", "Dura Na Queda", and "Ode Aos Ratos". CD

Damn – a heck of a treat! Chico Buarque's one of those artists we never take for granted – and although we've been loving his music for decades, we've also been surprised for that long at how consistently great it is – especially during his maturing years, when he really seems to have hit a whole new level of genius! A set like this is a perfect illustration of that fact – simple numbers with a mostly acoustic instrumental approach – yet put together with a subtle sort of complexity that really sets them apart! The tunes are timeless at some level, yet completely fresh at another – similar to some of Caetano Veloso's best work in later small combo modes – and as always, Chico's vocals alone are completely sublime – full of more than enough feeling and humanity to cross the boundaries of language. Luiz Claudio Ramos handled the great arrangements for the album – and titles include "Rubato", "Tipo Um Baiao", "Sinha", "Nina", "Sou Eu", "Sem Voce 2", and "Querido Diario". CD

That's a young mug shot of Chico Buarque on the cover, but the album's a later effort from the 90s – and one that really holds us rapt with the brilliance of Chico's mature songwriting and performance! The record's part of that ever-growing legacy that may well make Buarque one of the consistently strongest talents to emerge from Brazil in the 60s – material that holds onto everything that made him great at the start, but which also sounds quite different than that period, too – in a way that a rare few (maybe even just Caetano Veloso) can pull off this well. Chico grabs us beautifully with every word he sings, and the arrangements have the same understated brilliance of his performance – on titles that include "Paratodos", "Romance", "Outra Noite", "Sobre Todas As Coisas", "Tempo E Artista", "A Foto Da Capa", and "Piano Na Mangueira".

A beautiful beautiful album from Vinicius Cantuaria – one of the few Brazilian artists who seems to get better and better with age! The record's got a moody, stripped-down feel that reminds us of the most intimate work by Caetano Veloso from earlier years – gently jazzy, with clear inspiration from the bossa, but also a keen vision that helps Cantuaria define a sound that's far different than any of the bossa-revival albums on the market. Although spare and simple, the album's got a deeply personal feel – never too heady or overly intellectual, but also still clearly conscious of its own direction at all times. Great stuff throughout, and the kind of record that's got us paying more attention to Vinicius these days! Titles include "Toky", "Look To The Sky", "Procissao", "Quase Choro", "Cubanos Postizos", and "O Nome Dela". CD

Erasmo Carlos sounds even cooler here than usual – still working with tunes penned with his brother Roberto – but also taking on music by Caetano Veloso, Jorge Ben, and Marcos Valle too! There's a heady undercurrent to the record that's maybe a filtering-through of an earlier Tropicalia vibe – a mode that Erasmo never embraced, but which leaves its impression in some of the more striking arrangements here – especially in the way things trip out at all the best times! Fuzzy guitar and offbeat production really add a lot to the set – and titles include "Maria Joana", "Agora Ninguem Chora Mais", "26 Anos De Vida Normal", "Cica Cecilia", "Mundo Deserto", "Sodoma E Gomorra", "Masculino Feminio", and "De Noite Na Cama".

Erasmo Carlos is at his inventive best here – very playfully creative, yet in a way that refines his style from his trippier years – almost a reinvention of the singer's approach for a new generation of MPB – in a manner that some of the Tropicalia artists were doing at the time. The songwriting and production are great – and if the album were in English, it may well have been a global hit (although it did pretty well at home back in Brazil!) – and titles include "Mane Joao", "Largo Da Segunda Feira", "Sabado Morto", "E Proibido Fumar", "Preciso Encontrar Um Amigo", and "Mundo Cao".

One of the richest, most expressive albums ever from the great Gal Costa – a set from her immediate post-Tropicalia years, and one that shows that she's got a lot more to offer than just a wild sense of experimentation! Gilberto Gil is the musical director here – with help from Rogerio Duprat and Arthur Verocai – and the album's got the lofty feel you'd expect from all three talents – a rich blend of all the modern developments in Brazilian music that had taken place in the 60s, but infused with a newly rootsy sense as well – one that takes the whole thing back to a personal, expressive territory that's really wonderful. Instrumentationincludes work on keyboards by Wagner Tiso and Tenorio Jr, plus a bit of guitar from Roberto Menescal – and Gal does a great version of Caetano Veloso's "Relance" – alongside other tracks that include "Passarinho", "Da Maior Imortancia", "India", "Volta", and the funky "Pontos De Luz".

Amazing sounds from Gal Costa – a brilliant live album that follows strongly in the mode of her Recanto studio album! Like that set, this one features Gal in the most experimental style she's used in years – bits of electronics and contemporary underground modes layered in with her sublime vocals – all in ways that reopen that leftfield side of Costa's talents that have been buried for so many years! Some tracks are quite intimate and personal, others are very powerful – and the performance was put together by both Caetano and Moreno Veloso, with backing by a trio that also features percussion from Domenico too. Titles include "Tudo Gil", "Da Maior Importancia", "Mansidao", "Forca Estranha", "Meu Bem Mel Mal", "O Amor", "Baby", "Deus E O Amor", "Segunda", "Barato Total", and "Autotune Autoerotico". CD

Gilberto GilGilberto Gil (1971 – plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Philips/Water, 1971. New Copy ... $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 stripped-down, and mostly feature acoustic guitar, bass, and percussion, alongside Gil's English lyrics. But the record's somewhat different too – in that it's got a brighter, more redemptive feel – almost an indication that Gilberto's time abroad hadn't been such a terrible thing – especially given that the record is a new creative departure in his music! The English lyrics are really a treat – and are sometimes sung as a broken strand of familiar words, trying to work themselves together into a fragile tapestry of emotion – sometimes succeeding, sometimes not – but always beautiful, and always filled with the emotion of his experiences in exile! Titles include "Volkswagen Blues", "The Three Mushrooms", "Babylon", "Nega (Photograph Blues)", and "Mamma" – plus 3 bonus cuts: "Can't Find My Way Home", "Up From The Skies", and a great version of "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band". US version also features great sound and new liner notes by Peter Margasak! CD

Gilberto GilGilberto Gil Ao Vivo ... CD
Polygram (Brazil), 1974. Used ... $16.99
An excellent live set from 1974! Gilberto is playing in a fairly stripped down form, and the recording focuses mostly on his soulful singing and choppy acoustic guitar – although there is a larger group on a few tracks that plays electric guitar and keyboards, but never in a way that interferes with Gilberto's presence. The set has the same moody feeling as his rare 1971 LP on Paramount, with a stripped down sound, and lots of haunting extended tracks. The performance includes a long version of the track "Joao Sabino", plus Joao Donato's "Lugar Comum", Caetano Veloso's "Sim, Foi Voce", and the tracks "Abra O Olho" and "Heroi Das Estrelas". Great stuff, and although it's a live album, it's still one of Gilberto's best records from the 70s. CD

Joao GilbertoAmoroso/Brasil ... CD
Warner, 1977/1981. Used ... $5.99
A collection of two albums that Joao Gilberto did for Warner Brothers in the late 70s/early 80s. Amoroso is some pretty sweet stuff from Joao Gilberto – featuring a core jazz combo playing along with a larger set of arrangements, in a manner that's similar to some of Jobim's work from the 70s. The album features a nice vocal version of Jobim's "Wave" and "Zingaro", plus the tracks "Estate", "Tin Tin Por Tin Tin", and "Besame Mucho". On Brasil, Joao Gilberto meets the younger generation of Brazilian vocalists – Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, and Maria Bethania – and the four of them lay down some nice jazzy stuff, with all the vocals weaving in and out. Tracks are nice and long, and titles include "Cordeiro De Nana", "Aquarela Do Brasil", "Milagre", and "Bahia Com H". Johnny Mandel conducted, and Joao produced. CD

One of the best of the Lumiar Songbook series – and a 2 CD set that features a host of Brazil's great artists, all interpreting the work of one of the country's greatest songwriters! Unlike the other volumes, the artist in question – Edu Lobo – does not perform on the discs, but the 33 tracks on the set more than make up for his absence with an extremely sensitive approach to his music. There's way too much here to mention, but you'll hear loads of classics like "Zanzibar", "Reza", "Upa Neguinho", and others – all performed by the likes of Gal Costa, Tom Jobim, Caetano Veloso, Joao Bosco, Tim Maia, Milton Nascimento, Egberto Gismonti, Leny Andrade, Hermeto Pascoal, and others.

Jorge Mautner's best known to us for his excellent mid 70s album that was produced by Gilberto Gil – and he resurfaces nicely on this double CD set that shows 2 sides of his career: one selection of material from the 70s up through the 80s, plus a collection of his best compositions, sung by other Brazilian greats. Tracks on the selection of Jorge's work include "Rock Comendo Cereja", "Samba Dos Animais", "Aeroplanos", "O Boi", "Samba Jambo", "Pedra Bruta", "Cinco Bombas Atomicas", "Zona Fantasma", and "Nao Nao Nao". Actually, it kind of seems that the better CD is the one of collected works – as it's filled with many many nice moments, like Gal Costa singing "Lagrimas Negras", Moraes Moreira singing "Lenda Do Pegaso", Fagner performing "Viajente", Caetano Veloso singing "Vampiro", Ze Ramalho doing "Orquidea Negra", and 2 versions of the classic "Maracatu Atomico" – one by Gilberto Gil, the other by Chico Science!

Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66Stillness ... LP
A&M, 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $14.99
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 hipper than the group's early pop for A&M. The album features an excellent version of "For What It's Worth" that has a tight drumbreak which has been sampled often, as well as a great version of Caetano Veloso's "Lost in the Paradise" which is a good translation of the song to an American idiom! Other tracks include "Viramundo", "Stillness", "Chelsea Morning", and "Sometimes In Winter". A real gem – and one of the group's most overlooked albums! LP, Vinyl record album

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 Toquinho, she really sparkles with a sound that's some of her best singing on record. The trio sing separately or together from track to track – and the set includes a lot of great work that's in the Black Orpheus or Afro Sambas mode. Titles include "Canto De Osshana", "A Felicidade", "Tomara", "Canto De Osshana", "Minha Namorada", "Valsa Da Tunisia", "Lamento No Morro", and a great version of Caetano Veloso's "Irene"! The other CD follows a similar format – with Maria Bethania instead of Creuza – and tracks include "A Tonga Da Mironga Do", "Kabulete", "E De Manha", "Samba Da Rosa", "Testamento", "Apelo", "Viramindo", and "Tarde Em Itapoa".

The music is a wonderful blend of 60s rock and early MPB – hard-driving with plenty of guitars, but also produced with beautifully baroque touches that echo through simultaneous albums by Caetano Veloso and Gal Costa – both of whose 1969 albums are strongly resonant with this one. In fact, Caetano contributed a number of tracks to the album, including "Panis et Circenses", "Bat Macumba", "Trem Fantastma", and his great "Baby", which is done fantastically here.

One of the best albums in years from Henri Salvador – a set that still has some of the French Caribbean touches of other albums, but which also shows a bit of a Brazilian influence as well! The album was co-produced by bossa maestro Jacques Morelenbaum – who brings in some great guest work from Joao Donato on piano, plus vocals from Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil – who each sing on a track apiece. Henri's still the main star of the set, but the bossa inflection on a good part of the record helps him hit a mature, contemplative mode that's really great – just perfect for his aging vocals. Titles include "Mourir A Honfleur", "Cherche La Rose", "Tu Sais Je Vais T'Aimer", "Italie", "D'Abord", "Les Amours Qu'On Delaisse", and "Dans Mon Ile". CD

A record with "samba" in the title, but a set that hardly sounds like samba at all – given that the record is one of the groundbreaking 70s albums from the legendary Tom Ze! Ze first rose to fame as an experimentalist in the Tropicalia scene – but here, he's years past that movement, yet still one of its most creative proponents – working in a mode that takes older Brazilian rhythms and infuses them with all the new sounds, styles, and sense of poetry that Tom was bringing to his music – often quite playful, but at a level that's quite moving as well. The whole thing's got the subtle "beyond language" power of some of the best by Caetano Veloso – even though Tom Ze is completely his own man throughout. The set features arrangements from Jose Briamonte, production from Heraldo Do Monte, and titles that include a rootsy take on "A Felicidade", plus the nutty instrumental "Toc", and the original tracks "So", "Ma", "Vai", "Ui", "Indice", "Hein", and "Mae".

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 a bit straighter than the more experimental style of Tom's classic albums – but they've still got all these weird little twists and turns, especially as the 70s move into the mix a bit more – showing this amazing ability that Ze has to explode the format of a conventional pop presentation, all while moving a modernist agenda forward a few steps more. Titles include "Bola Pra Frente", "Silencio De Nos Dois", "Senhor Cidadao", "A Baba", "Angusta Angelica E Consolacao", "Contos De Fraldas", "Doi", "A Dama De Vermalho", "Voce Gosta", and a version of the Caetano Veloso song "Irene".

The lovely Maria De Fatima sings and plays guitar in a style that's not unlike Joyce – quite warm, and often a bit airy – gliding out beautifully over lightly dancing rhythms that draw on samba, bossa, and a bit of jazz! But there's also some more sophisticated phrasings here too – elements that clearly come from a love of 70s work by Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, and their generation – served up subtly and simply by Maria in her music, with a really unique feel overall. Instrumentation is relatively light – again, a quality that reminds us of Joyce at her best – and backings include work from the Fattoruso brothers, who'd crafted some earlier bossa sets on their own! Titles include "Voce Sorrindo E Entregando", "Toda Menina Bahiana", "Coisas Estranhas", "Bahia Com H", "Tres Pontas", "Sao Joao Xango Menino", and "Cancombe Brasileiro Montevideano".

Gilberto Gil is the musical director here – with help from Rogerio Duprat and Arthur Verocai – and the album's got the lofty feel you'd expect from all three talents – a rich blend of all the modern developments in Brazilian music that had taken place in the 60s, but infused with a newly rootsy sense as well – one that takes the whole thing back to a personal, expressive territory that's really wonderful. Instrumentationincludes work on keyboards by Wagner Tiso and Tenorio Jr, plus a bit of guitar from Roberto Menescal – and Gal does a great version of Caetano Veloso's "Relance" – alongside other tracks that include "Passarinho", "Da Maior Imortancia", "India", "Volta", and the funky "Pontos De Luz".

✨✧ Vinicius de Moraes with Maria CreuzaVinicius De Moraes En La Fusa Con Maria Creuza Y Toquinho ... LP
RGS (Argentina), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A rare session by Vinicius – featuring 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 Toquinho, she really sparkles with a sound that's some of her best singing on record. The trio sing separately or together from track to track – and the set includes a lot of great work that's in the Black Orpheus or Afro Sambas mode. Titles include "Canto De Osshana", "A Felicidade", "Tomara", "Canto De Osshana", "Minha Namorada", "Valsa Da Tunisia", "Lamento No Morro", and a great version of Caetano Veloso's "Irene"!

✨✧ Os MutantesEverything Is Possible! – The Best Of Os Mutantes (orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Luaka Bop, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
An essential introduction to the work of this legendary group – an important American issue of some of their best material – all of which never came out in our market back in the day! If you don't know Os Mutantes, prepare to be blown away – as they were a key part of the Tropicalia movement, alongside bigger names Caetano Veloso, Gal Costa, and Gilberto Gil – creating music that was years ahead of its time, but which has gone on to become legendary over the years! There's so many different elements going on here, it's impossible to pin down – avant and psychedelic modes, Brazilian styles and postmodern ones, all put together with sublime production that's also way ahead of the pack! This Luaka Bop presentation was put together by David Byrne – and it features a total of 14 cuts in all – including an English and Portuguese reading of the famous "Baby", plus the tunes "Ave Lucifer", "Desculpe, Babe", "Adeus Maria Fulo", "Panis Et Circensis", "Bat Macumba", "Dia 36", and "Fuga No II". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Chico Science & Nacao ZumbiAfrociberdelia (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Chaos/Polysom (Brazil), 1996. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Believe it or not, the title's a pretty good way to describe this modern Brazilian rock release – as the music's a mish mash of newer beats and grooves, grounded in a hip hop/dance tradition, mixed with samples of older Brazilian rock influences – including stuff by Os Mutantes, Gilberto Gil, and Caetano Veloso. We like this one a lot better than we expected, and we hardly mind the modern elements, when we can get an occasional treat like a sample of "Bat Macumba", or a remake of "Maracatu Atomico". The latter track is included here in 4 different mixes, and other tracks include "Sangue De Bairro", "Mateus Enter", "O Cidado Do Mundo", "Maco", "Um Passeio No Mundo Livre", and "Baiao Ambiental".

✨✧ Tom ZeEstudando O Samba ... LP
Continental/Mr Bongo (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A record with "samba" in the title, but a set that hardly sounds like samba at all – given that the record is one of the groundbreaking 70s albums from the legendary Tom Ze! Ze first rose to fame as an experimentalist in the Tropicalia scene – but here, he's years past that movement, yet still one of its most creative proponents – working in a mode that takes older Brazilian rhythms and infuses them with all the new sounds, styles, and sense of poetry that Tom was bringing to his music – often quite playful, but at a level that's quite moving as well. The whole thing's got the subtle "beyond language" power of some of the best by Caetano Veloso – even though Tom Ze is completely his own man throughout. The set features arrangements from Jose Briamonte, production from Heraldo Do Monte, and titles that include a rootsy take on "A Felicidade", plus the nutty instrumental "Tom", and the original tracks "So", "Ma", "Vai", "Ui", "Indice", "Hein", and "Mae".

✨✧ Lo BorgesLo Borges (1972) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
EMI/Polysom (Brazil), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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 the style of the more famous singer. Yet Borges is almost an equally great talent on his own – with a soaring, soulful approach that's every bit as great as the best Nascimento material from the period – and recorded in a wonderfully similar spirit! The sound here is completely sublime right from the start – music that moves us, even if we can't understand the language of the lyrics – like some of the best work by Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil. There's maybe a bit more guitar than on some of the Milton Nascimento work of the period – but used in a fuzzy way that slides in nicely with some of the jazzy phrasing of the instrumentation – which is delivered with help from key contemporaries who include Beto Guedes, Nelson Angelo, Toninho Horta, and Tenorio Jr. The songwriting is amazing – and titles include "Cancao Postal", "Voce Fica Melhor Assim", "Nao Foi Nada", "Calibre", "Faca Seu Jogo", "Toda Essa Agua", "Pensa Voce", "Como O Machando", and "Aos Baroes". LP, Vinyl record album
(Comes with a bonus lyric insert too!)

✨✧ VariousTropicalia – Ou Panis Et Circencis (180 gram pressing – with bonus CD) ... LP
Polygram/Lilith (Italy), 1968. New Copy LP & CD (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A landmark album – not just in Brazilian music, but in all modern music in general! The set's a legendary manifesto for the Tropicalia movement in Brazil – and features key works by all the leading musical luminaries in the movement – including a few later stars who are heard here at their most edgey! The work is as groundbreaking today as it was at the end of the 60s – a brilliant testament to the power of artists to really break down boundaries in art and music, and find a way to mix the political with the popular at the same time. Titles include a fantastic version of Gal Costa and Caetano Veloso singing "Baby", the "Tres Caravelas" duet between Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil, Gil's great reading of "Bat Macumba" with Costa and Veloso, Nara Leao singing "Lindoneia", Os Mutantes performing "Panis Et Circenses", Gilberto on "Geleia Geral, Caetano doing "Coracao Materno, and Rita Lee, Gal Costa, and Caetano Veloso singing "Enquanto Seu Lobo Nao Vem". LP, Vinyl record album
(On heavy vinyl – and with a bonus CD of the album!)

✨✧ Maria BethaniaAlibi ... CD
Universal (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Strong work by Maria Bethania from the late 70s – a session that has her tightening up her sound a bit more than before, but without any loss of her sense of drama or emotion! The album was recorded with a number of different musical backgrounds, including many small group settings with guitar by Rosinha De Valenca – an artist we love on her own, and who adds in a nicely personal touch to this album's mix of strings, keyboards, and rootsier percussion. The guitar works nicely with Maria's voice, and is perhaps second in the mix behind her singing – giving the songs a nice focus even when the backings are quite large. Songs are a mix of tunes by Gilberto Gil, Chico Buarque, Caetano Veloso, and other likely suspects – and titles include "Calice", "Interior", "De Todas As Maneiras", "O Meu Amor", "Ronda", and "Diamante Verdadeiro".

✨✧ Celso FonsecaVoz & Violao ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 2009. Used ... Out Of Stock
Really lovely work from Celso Fonseca – a live recording, but one that's arguably even more personal and intimate than some of his previous studio albums! Celso's sound here is fragile, yet extremely present as well – in ways that remind us of some of Joao Gilberto's best solo vocal/guitar material, or some of the stripped down live material that Caetano Veloso recorded at rare points in his career. Titles include "Quando Te Vi", "Beleza Rara", "Casa Serio", "Tempo Rei", "Conquista", "Ela E Carioca", "Adeus Batucada", "Febre", and "Slow Motion Bossa Nova". CD

✨✧ Dona Ivone LaraCanto De Rainha ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 2009. Used ... Out Of Stock
Amazing live work from this Brazilian samba legend – and a set that features killer guest work from Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Beth Carvalho, Zeca Pagodinho, and others! Although Dona Ivone Lara's been recording for many years, the passage of time has only seemed to deepen her sense of soul and feeling – and even though it's been many years since we heard her last, we find this recent set to be one of her most captivating records ever! Backings are mostly in a traditional samba mode – tight percussion and guitars – and titles include "Sorriso Negro", "Alvorecer", "Samba De Roda Pra Salvador", "Forca Da Imaginacao", "Tendencia", "Sonho Meu", "Dizer Nao Pro Adeus", "Canto De Rainha", and "Nas Escritas Da Vida".

✨✧ Milton NascimentoAnima ... CD
Mercury (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An ambitious early 80s session from Milton Nascimento – done in the style begun by his Minas and Geraes albums, and infused with an ever-growing sense of soul that makes even the mellower numbers sound great! There's a more popular approach to the songwriting here – one that goes a bit more for hooks than before – but that sound is fine with us, as Milton's beautiful vocals are well-suited so such a project. Caetano Veloso and Simone E Tadeu Franco make guest appearances on the record – and titles include "As Varias Pontas De Uma Estrela", "No Analices", "Certas Cancoes", "Evocacao Das Montanhas", and "Olha".

✨✧ Elis ReginaElis (1966) ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An excellent early gem by one of Brazil's greatest singers! The record captures Elis Regina at a prime early stage – when her voice was raw and filled with emotion, and when she was backed by some excellent arrangements that blended jazz, bossa, and more complicated vocal settings. The material is handled extremely well – and the set list includes many early versions of songs by some of Brazil's best writers, like "Cancao Do Sal" by Milton Nascimento, "Sonho De Maria" by Marcos Valle, "Tem Mais Samba" by Chico Buarque, "Lunik 9" and "Roda" by Gilberto Gil, "Pra Dizer Adeus" by Edu Lobo, and "Boa Palavra" by Caetano Veloso.
