✨✧ Milton NascimentoClube Da Esquina (180 gram pressing) ... LP
EMI/Polysom (Brazil), 1972. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A landmark album from Milton Nascimento – not only a set that really marked his growth as a singer, songwriter, and overall musical visionary – but also a record that really showcased the collaborative spirit that would be a part of his music for years to come! The album features Milton with his "corner club" – an elite group of musicians and songwriters from the early days of his career – including greats like Lo Borges and Wagner Tiso – who'd already contributed to his music, but really get a chance to stand in the spotlight here. Borges is particularly fantastic, and shines on the massively beautiful cut "Tudo Que Voce Podia Ser", which begins the album – and which is still one of the best Nascimento cuts all these many years later! The sound of the record is impossible to describe adequately – but it's got a fantastically soulful vibe, soaring and joyous, and really expanded through the participation of the other rich talents. The vocals are mixed perfectly, and the songwriting's brilliant all the way through – and titles include "San Vincete", "Lila", "Paisagem Da Janela", "Cravo E Canela", "Tudo Que Voce Podia Ser", "Os Povos", "Nada Sera Como Antes", "Um Gosto De Sol", and "O Trem Azul".

✨✧ Milton NascimentoClube Da Esquina 2 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
EMI/Polysom (Brazil), 1978. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A second great statement from the "corner club" of Milton Nascimento – that special assemblage of musicians from his home territory of Minas Gerais, augmented here in slight ways that maybe make the album an even more ambitious record than the first! All the best artists from the previous set are in place here – including the sublime Lo Borges on vocals, Wagner Tiso on keyboards, Toninho Horta on bass and guitar – but the set also features contributions from other Brazilian talents – including Chico Buarque on vocals, Ed Maciel on trombone, Paulo Jobim on guitar, and even Azimuth on a bit of grooves! As with the first set, the mix of modes is amazing – all the rich, soulful qualities of Milton Nascimento's best early work – but delivered in a magnificently collaborative mode that never wastes a minute of the extended double-length space of the album. As before, songs are penned by most of the collaborators – and titles include "E Dai", "Pao E Agua", "Canoa Canoa", "Credo", "Nascente", "Meu Menino", "Que Bom Amigo", and "Dona Olimpia".

Milton NascimentoUltimo Trem (limited edition red vinyl) (2020 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Far Out (UK), 1980. New Copy 2LP ... $29.99
Beautiful work from Milton Nascimento – songs done for a ballet, but served up with the same understated brilliance of some of Milton's other studio material! The songs are never overblown or the sort that you'd know from a larger piece of this sort in the European tradition – and instead, they're done with a mode that's got all the best "corner club" elements of previous recordings – Wagner Tiso on piano, Nelson Angelo and Paulo Jobim on guitar, and work from Joao Donato and members of Som Imaginario too. Titles include "A Viagem", "O Velho", "Oracao", "Roupa Nova", "Ponte De Areia", "A Lua Girou", and "Ultimo Trem". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Milton NascimentoGeraes (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
EMI (Brazil), 1976. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Beautiful stuff – and one of Milton Nascimento's greatest albums of the 70s! The style here is a bit more subdued than on some of his later work – but in a way that's really majestic and soulful, showing the further development of Milton's unique idiom as he becomes one of the cornerstones of 70s MPB. There's a sense of power here that's very subtle, but which is pure Nascimento all the way – a maturing approach to both songwriting and singing that are light years from the music of Brazil a decade before. Filled with great material – and includes the tracks "Caldera" and "Circo Marimbondo", both of which have a nice swinging groove, plus "Viver De Amor", "Carro De Boi", "Fazenda", "Volver A Los 17", and "Minas Geraes". CD also features the bonus cuts "Primerio De Maio" and "O Cio Da Terra", which (we think) were only available before as singles! CD

✨✧ Milton Nascimento & Dudu Lima TrioTamarear ... CD
Som Livre (Brazil), 2015. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest settings in years for legendary Brazilian singer Milton Nascimento – a record that has the giant working with just a jazz trio for backing – led by bassist Dudu Lima, and with a sound that really takes Milton back to his roots! Nascimento's always had a very special style, but some albums of the past decade or two don't always bring it to the forefront – yet here, with just a piano, bass, and drums for accompaniment, Milton hits the kinds of soulful strides he initially made in the company of keyboardist Wagner Tiso on his 70s classics – this kind of spacious, almost heavenly mode that's filled with soul. The musicians move between acoustic and electric elements, but the sound is pretty stripped-down throughout – although guitarist Stanley Jordan joins the set on two numbers. The group really change up some Nascimento classics, too – and titles include "Clube Da Esquinha No 2", "Gran Circo", "Som Do Ceu/Nada Sera Como Antes", "Tamerar", "Belafante", "Fe Cega Faca Amolada", and "Nascimento/Travessia".

✨✧ Milton Nascimento & Jobim TrioNovas Bossas (Brazilian pressing) ... CD
EMI (Brazil), 2008. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
This one definitely earns its "nova bossas" title – in that it's got a really unique groove that mixes Milton Nascimento's classic style with jazzier instrumentation from a small bossa combo! The group features Daniel Jobim on piano and Paulo Jobim on guitar – providing gentle backdrops for Nasimento's incredible vocals – which are often sung here at a level that's more soaring and spacious than we've heard in years. There's an airiness to this that takes us back to Milton's work of the 70s – and even though the instrumentation's much sparer than on those records, Nascimento's vocals float out and fill up all the spaces nicely – creating a really warm and evocative sound throughout. Titles include "Tarde", "O Vento", "Tudo Que Voce Podia Ser", "Diaz Azuis", "Medo De Amar", "Velho Riacho", "Samba Do Aviao", and "Esperanca Perdida". CD

Columbia, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful little album, very different than Wayne Shorter's other work, and sort of a "return of the favor" to the nation of Brazil for the country's rich musical influence on his music! Milton Nascimento sings vocals on most cuts, and if anything, the album resembles Nascimento's work of the mid 70s quite strongly – with similar airy arrangements and a very full, polished sound. Brazilian jazz musicians Airto, Roberto Silva, and Wagner Tiso play on the record – which also features work by Herbie Hancock. Titles include "Ponta De Areia", "Tarde", "Miracle Of The Fishes", "From The Lonely Afternoon", and "Ana Maria". CD

✨✧ Fabiano Do NascimentoTempo Dos Mestres ... CD
Now Again, 2017. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really beautiful second album from Fabiano Do Nascimento – and a set that really blows away his debut! This record's got an "instant classic" vibe right from the start – the kind of set that you could easily listen next to 70s gems by artists like Lo Borges, Milton Nascimento, or Edu Lobo – with a sound that hangs between the complexity and soul of all three of those artists – but a presentation that's also very personal and unique! Fabiano plays acoustic guitar throughout, with a cascading vibe that's incredibly compelling – and often offset by light flute and percussion, which skitter alongside his beautiful vocals – in ways that are always upbeat, but never too polished – really preserving this organic core in his music! The sound is sublime – sophisticated, but very organic – and if you know us at all, we're not ones to throw around the term "classic" lightly when it comes to Brazilian music. Titles include "Planalto", "Baiao", "Brasilerinho", "Ja Que Tu", "Oye Nana", "O Tempo", "Canto De Xango", and "Louva A Deus Mantis". CD

AirtoFree/Identity/Promises Of The Sun (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Arista/BGO (UK), 1972/1975/1976. New Copy 2 CDs ... $14.99
A trio of albums from percussionist Airto – with bonus tracks too! First up is Free – one of the coolest, grooviest albums you'll ever hear from the legendary percussionist Airto – a set that mixes his own Brazilian roots with the electric genius of 70s CTI – all with stunning results! Airto's in the lead – and blows some beautiful wood flute lines alongside percussion – but the album also features killer contributions from Joe Farrell on soprano sax, Hubert Laws on flute, Keith Jarrett on piano, and Chick Corea on Fender Rhodes – as well as a hip bit of vocals from Flora Purim as well! There's some added horns at parts – but the arrangements are relatively spare and subtle – so that most tracks have a core organic quality, very similar to Airto's work on Buddah/Cobblestone, but given a bit more of a CTI twist. Most tunes are quite long and free-flowing – and titles include "Lucky Southern", "Flora's Song", "Creek (Arroio)", and "Return To Forever". Identity is a soaring set of grooves from one of the world's greatest percussionists – a standout set as a leader from Airto, and a key set in his wonderful run of work from the 70s! The album's still got the loose, free feel of Airto's earliest work, and isn't nearly as crossover-oriented as some of the Flora Purim sets from the time – still strongly in a rootsy, earthy sort of vibe – and produced with a very respectful sound by Herbie Hancock. Herbie plays some Arp on the record, and Wayne Shorter brings in some soprano sax too – but the core elements of the album are Airto's range of percussion instruments, keyboards and piano from Egberto Gismonti, drums from Roberto, trombone from Raul DeSouza, and a bit of vocals from Flora. Titles include "Flora On My Mind", "Cafe", "The Magicians", "Tales From Home", "Identity", and "Encounter". Promises Of The Sun is a record that departs nicely from earlier work, yet still keeps all the best elements intact! Airto's percussion work is firmly at the core of the set – giving it a nice acoustic base to work from, while also adding in touches of electric guitar by Toninho Horta, bass by Novelli, and keyboards from Hugo Fattoruso. The groove is a wonderful blend of the acoustic and electric, organic and synthetic – and is often crafted in a majestic vibe that seems to be inspired by the work of Milton Nascimento from the early 70s. Tracks include "Circo Marimbondo", "Zuei", "Candango", "Ruas Do Recife", "Georgiana", and "La De Casa". CD features bonus tracks "Creek (alt version)", "So Tender", and "Jequie". CD

✨✧ Lo BorgesLo Borges (1972) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
EMI/Polysom (Brazil), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
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".

✨✧ Robertinho BrantFilme Imaginario ... CD
Sonhos & Sons (Brazil), 2007. Used ... $12.99
The first album in many years from Robertinho Brant – and a really evocative little set, one that more than lives up to its title! There's definitely a soundtrack sort of quality to the tunes, even though most of them are vocal numbers – and they work like little snapshots of life, put together in a way that's got some of the same lightly poetic touches of the Minas Geraes generation – echoes of the work of Milton Nascimento and Lo Borges, with possibly a touch of Edu Lobo in the arranging style as well. Backings often mix a bit of electric and acoustic instrumentation, yet never in ways that are too slick or overproduced – and Brant's breathy presentation of the lyrics really fits the mood of the set. Titles include "Da Mesma Estrela", "Sinal De Paz", "Noite Azul", "Una Mujer", "Luz Da Manha", "Os Sonhadores", and "Pobre Planeta", which features Seu Jorge. CD

Till BronnerRio (deluxe edition with book & DVD) ... CD
Verve (Germany), 2008. Used 2 Discs ... $16.99
The deepest album we've heard in years from Till Bronner – a beautiful collection of Brazilian-tinged tunes, performed with a host of wonderful guest stars! Bronner plays his usual trumpet, and also sings a bit too – in that warmly raspy voice that we first grew to love during his Chet Baker tribute. But almost even better are the guests – who include Milton Nascimento, Vanessa De Mata, Aimee Mann, Sergio Mendes, Luciana Souza, Melody Gardot, and our own Kurt Elling – all of whom really bring a lot of depth to the record with their contributions. There's still a warmly soulful feel to the set, as you'd hear on other Bronner albums – but the additional Brazilian touches really make the whole thing sound fresh and wonderful – an unexpected treat from an artist we always like to keep our ear on. Titles include "O Que Sera", "Evening", "Ela E Carioca", "Ligia", "Cafe Com Pao", "A Ra", "Bonita", "Sim Ou Nao", "Aquelas Coisas Todas", and "Misterios". CD

FlaviolaFlaviola E O Bando Do Sol (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Rozenblit/Polysom (Brazil), 1974. New Copy ... $32.99
A gem of a record from the same Pernambuco early 70s scene that gave us Lula Cortes, Ze Ramalho, Geraldo Azevedo, and Alceu Valenca! This obscure little set has lots of the earthier tones that showed up in work by the above artists – a style that mixes folksy touches with bits of psychedelia – kind of a north east answer to the growing sound from the Minas Geraes generation around Milton Nascimento. Many of the tunes here are fairly mellow – building slowly with an honest, earthy integrity – and mostly relying on acoustic instrumentation to carry the gentle poetry of the lyrics, but still coming across with enough of an edge to appeal to fans of stronger South American rock. Titles include "Canto Funebre", "O Tempo", "Noite", "Desespero", "Cancao De Outono", "Do Amigo", and "Romance Da Lua Lua". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Amilton GodoyTributo A Zimbo Trio ... CD
Tratore (Brazil), 2019. Used ... $6.99
The album's a tribute to the legendary Zimbo Trio from 60s Brazil – and pianist Amilton Gody really does a great job of getting the sound just right! The tunes are all instrumentals, with bass from Sidiel Viera and drums from Edu Ribeiro – done in that lively, rhythmic style that made the group such a legend at the time – and maybe one of the few to bridge the world of bossa instrumentals and more complex jazz-based moments – a quality that Godoy expands even more here in his arrangements! In fact, the album maybe has more jazz depth than some of the classics from Zimbo – and we mean that in the best way possible. Titles include "Bebe", "Aviao", "Pot Pourri Milton Nascimento", "Loro", "Garota De Ipanema", and "Arrastao". CD

Ivan LinsQuem Sou Eu? ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1972. Used ... $14.99
One of Ivan Lins' first albums – and a landmark set of MPB! The record shows a lot of strands of influence from the Milton Nascimento, Lo Borges, and Minhas Geraes camp – and it shares much of the same sense of jazzy scoring with the work of those artists. But most important is Lins' ability to write a song – a talent that was present strongly even at this early stage, and which added an incredible amount of sophistication to Brazilian popular music. His voice is fantastic, too – with a raspy edge that gives it a great deal of honesty, and which makes you really feel the lyrics, even if you don't understand his language. Titles include "Voce Amiga", "SQDQ", "Quarto Escuro", "Ratos Baratos e Cupins", "Pra Voce Ver", and "Sai De Baixo". CD

Mauricio Maestro with Nana VasconcelosUpside Down ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2011. New Copy ... $7.99 16.99
A contemporary set, but one that's unlike any other recent Brazilian recording we can think of – given the very unique vibe that Mauricio Maestro is going for! You might know Mauricio from his mid 70s work with Joyce on Visions Of Dawn – and although this set is a recent recording, it has a same sort of classic feel overall. The sound here has deep rhythms and folksy touches – a warm acoustic mode, but topped with some slight electricity and larger arrangements – a bit like some of the more creative sounds in the Brazilian underground during the post-Tropicalia years – yet with a richness that takes it much farther too! Maestro handled the arrangements, and he brings in a jazz-tinged quality that's not unlike the Milton Nascimento generation – yet the overall approach is earthier too, and vocals are handled by Mauricio, percussionist Nana Vasconcelos, and Kay Lyra – swirled up with a bit of light string backings that really help the record soar to the skies! We'd rank this one right up there with classics from the 70s by Joyce or Edu Lobo – but we also recognize that it's very much it's own record too. Titles include "Jungle Bells", "Agua Clara", "Canto Do Paje", "Todos Os Santos", "Ciclo Da Vida", "Ouvindo Estrelas", "Upside Down", and "Horizonte". CD

Odeon/Elemental (Spain), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
A fantastic 70s album from this legendary harmony quartet – a female group that first emerged during the bossa generation in 60s Brazil, but who seem to hit an even more sublime sound with this rare gem from 1972! The setting is kind of post-bossa – maybe in the territory that Marcos Valle and some of his contemporaries were hitting – as the quartet work with fantastic arrangements from Edu Lobo and Luiz Eca of the Tamba Trio – in modes that are complicated and sophisticated, yet also straightforward and groovy – a perfect blend for the vocal harmonies! The album features the girls' incredible take on the Milton Nascimento song "Tudo Que Voce Podia Ser" – and other great tracks include "Quando O Carnaval Chegar", "Inclensa", "Cantoria", "Canto De Oba", and "Zanga Zangada".

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.

✨✧ SimoneFace A Face ... LP
EMI (Brazil), 1977. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $16.99
A wonderful early album from Simone – a set that's filled with compelling sounds and styles that really mark her music as part of the Milton Nascimento generation! There's a slow-building and spacious sort of feel to the record – a mix of instrumentation that includes some jazz elements, a few rootsier touches, and production that kind of spaces the whole thing out nicely with Simone's vocals – which themselves have the airier elements that Lo Borges or Nascimento were using at the time. Instrumentation includes piano from Toninho Horta, Gilson Peranzzetta, and Milton Nascimento, guitar from Nelson Angelo, bass from Novelli, and flute from Danillo Caymmi – and titles include a great reading of Chico Buarque/Francis Hime's "Valsa Rancho", plus "Comecaria Tudo Outra Vez", "Paixo E Fe", "Face A Face", and "O Que Sera".

Odeon/Polysom (Brazil), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
An incredible early album by this legendary Brazilian band with a strong late 60s/early 70s progressive flair! While not as countercultural as Os Mutantes or other Tropicalia artists, Som Imaginario shared with them a sense of pure musical inventiveness, and a love of psychedelic flourishes – and they had a lasting impact upon MPB through their backup work for Milton Nascimento on some of his best albums. This rare first album is a killer – and features fantastic organ and piano riffs, heavy guitars, and stunning songwriting, with lots of jazzy touches – all very much in the best mode of the Minas Geras scene that also birthed Nascimento and Lo Borges. Wagner Tiso is on keyboards, but the whole band's great – and the vocals are produced to a very cool effect – and titles include "Hey Man", "Poison", "Nepal", "Pantera", "Super God", and "Morse".

One of the last great records ever made by Sarah Vaughan – a really solid session of Brazilian tunes, one that's produced by Sergio Mendes, arranged by Dori Caymmi, and which features guest vocals by Milton Nascimento! The general approach is west coast mellow – as the group features Alphonson Johnson, George Duke, Hubert Laws, Tom Scott, and Ernie Watts – and most of the tunes are English translations of older Brazilian tracks from the 60s and 70s, done by Sarah in an easy, jazzy tone. Titles include "Love & Passion", "Your Smile", "Obsession", "Make This City Ours Tonight", "Nothing Will Be As It Was", and "Photograph". CD

Soul Jazz (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $18.99 22.99
Fantastic grooves from the 70s – tracks that are part of a great second wave of Brazilian music to hit our shores, then take off in a whole new direction! The US was no stranger to Brazilian sounds in the 60s – given the popularity of bossa nova and a few other styles – but as the 70s approached, a new generation of artists started to hit the American scene – often with richer, more sophisticated ideas that built on older bossa and samba modes, then combined them with new approaches to jazz, funk, and soul! This killer set presents a perfect portrait of that time – mixing familiar names with newcomers, or Brazilian recording artists with American studio talents – all in a batch of cuts that still stand as some of our favorite Brazilian grooves of all time – even if they didn't come from Rio or Sao Paulo. Titles include "Bahia Soul" by Luiz Bonfa, "Catavento" by Milton Nascimento, "Ain't No Sunshine" by Sivuca, "Braun Blek Blu" by Dom Um Romao, "Skyscrapers" by Deodato, "Sandalia Delia" by Duke Pearson with Flora Purim, "Samba De Flora" by Airto, "Consolacao" by Tamba 4, "Moon Dreams" by Flor Purim, "Andei" by Airto, "Almas Irmas" by Joao Donato, "Kathy" by Moacir Santos, "Tombo In 7/4" by Airto, "Rio Vermelho" by Milton Nascimento, and "Escravos De Jo" by Dom Um Romao.

The album features 9 remixes of tracks from the 2nd Friends From Rio project – sparkling jazzy versions of Brazilian classics, reworked in a such a way as to incorporate modern electronics and dancefloor rhythms, but also at a level that never obscures the original tune. Titles include Milton Nascimento's "Cravo E Canela", "Vera Cruz", and "Escravos Do Jo" – plus "Lance Livre", "Sob O Mar", "Dona Cora", and "Comeco Da Festa". Very nice! CD

Bemol/Discobertas (Brazil), 1967. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Spectacular organ from Celio Balona – a Brazilian keyboardist from the 60s, but one who's maybe a bit different than some of his contemporaries – as the range of tones and other sonic elements is nicely mixed up to really fit the spirit of the tunes – which include early numbers by Caetano Veloso, Milton Nascimento, and Chico Buarque – and not just the usual pop instrumental songs you'd hear on other records like this! Most of the backing seems to be from a small combo with nicely snapping drums – and Balona's command of his instrument is great, and includes plenty of basslines from the bottom that really make the best tunes groove – in a lineup that includes "Vesti Azul", "Carolina", "Alegria Alegria", "Manifesto", "Travessia", "Maria Carnaval E Cinzas", and "Meu Grito".

The album was actually recorded down in Rio – and features great contributions from Simone, Milton Nascimento, Roberto Silva, Toninho Horta, and Airto – all working beautifully under Duke's leadership, on cuts that include "Brazilian Love Affair", "Cravo E Canela", "Brazilian Sugar", "Sugarloaf Mountain", "Ao Que Vai Nascer", and "I Need You Now".

An incredible collection – four albums that feature this amazing singer at her height, along with bonus tracks too! First up is Feminina – 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 recognizes Joyce's bossa roots, but really moves beyond with all the sophistication of MPB in the 70s! The sound of the whole thing is wonderful – completely transcendent and mesmerizing right from the start – and Joyce penned most of the tunes and handled the arrangements – with help from Gilson Peranzzetta on a few tracks. Titles include the classic "Feminina", plus "Essa Mulher", "Coracao De Crianca", "Aldeia De Ogum", "Compor", and "Misterios". Next is Agua E Luz – an amazing mix of jazzy vocals, sparkling production, and beautiful light guitar – the younger Joyce at her best – in a wonderfully uncluttered style that makes the record a treasure all the way through! Joyce sings and plays acoustic guitar – and gets these lightly jazzy backings that often feature a bit of electricity, but never too much to dampen the acoustic heart of the record – that great sense of personality that's always made Joyce unlike any other Brazilian artist we can think of – even though so many others have tried to copy her style over the years! Joyce did all the arrangements herself, Sivuca guests on one track – and titles include "Muito Prazer", "Samba De Gago", "Agua E Luz", "Mais Uma Vez, Mais Uma Voiz", "Banho Maria", and "Meio A Meio". Tardes Cariocas is a set recorded during the same key stretch as her early 80s albums for EMI – yet much more obscure! The album's got the same brilliant blend of jazz and bossa phrasing as her classics Agua E Luz and Feminina – and really brings Joyce's beautiful vocals to the forefront, with a strong focus on that fluid, jazzy style we totally love! Acoustic guitar is key to the instrumentation, yet there's also a few electric touches on keyboards – yet used quite softly, so that the presence of Joyce really dominates the record – but with a power that's greater than some of her more solo sets. Wonderful throughout –a nd with cuts that include "Nacional Kid", "Curioso", "Baracumbarra", "Tardes Cariocas", "Luz Do Chao", and "Ela". Saudade Do Futuro is a totally hard to find Joyce album from the mid 80's. Recorded for the obscure Pointer label in Brazil, this set has more of a modern fusion feel than some of her classic recordings that we stock, but Joyce's voice is still sweet and lovely, and her songwriting's as strong as always. The set includes her classic cut "Fa Da Bahia", plus other nice tracks like "Peixe Estrela", "Sonora Garoa", "Quadrantes", "Minha Gata Rita Lee", "Stone Washed, and "Tema Para Jobim", which has a guest performance by Milton Nascimento! Set features 7 bonus tracks – recordings done with Viva Voz, Antonio Adolfo, Mario Adnet, and others – with titles that include "Acalanto", "Terra", "Pega Leve", "Canconeta", "Revendo Amigos", "Diga Ai Companheiro", and "Planeta Azul".

✨✧ Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66Crystal Illusions ... CD
A&M/Universal, 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
Dreamy loveliness from Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66! The album's one of their true 60s classics for A&M – a sublime blend of female vocals, Brazilian rhythms, and jazzy instrumentation – groovily dancing with a light and breezy sound that influenced a generation, and which still sounds pretty darn fresh to our ears today! The album's filled with great versions of Brazilian tunes – and titles include Marcos Valle's "Viola", Edu Lobo's "Crystal Illusions", Milton Nascimento's "Empty Faces", plus "Song Of No Regrets", "Salt Sea", and "Dois Dias". Nice stuff, and very groovy! CD

✨✧ Lo BorgesDinamo ... CD
Deck Disk (Brazil), 2020. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really fantastic album from the great Lo Borges – and proof of that long-running adage about Brazilian singers – they never falter as they age, and most seem to be able to hold onto all that made them great in the first place – at a level that's very different from artists on the Anglo side of the spectrum! Lo first rose to prominence as part of the "corner club" of Milton Nascimento – and his songwriting really helped propel Nascimento in the 70s, and was also the start of a great run of fantastic, but oft-overlooked (at least on our shores) records by Borges himself – a sublime legacy that's really continued here, in a set of well-penned songs that sparkle with all the many charms of Lo's key records in the 70s. Titles include "Dinamo", "O Caos Da Cidade", "Refugio", "Altajuda", "Lava Do Vesuvio", "Quantos Janeiros", and "Apontando O Norte". CD

Solar/World Psychedelia, 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A gem of a record from the same Pernambuco early 70s scene that gave us Lula Cortes, Ze Ramalho, Geraldo Azevedo, and Alceu Valenca! This obscure little set has lots of the earthier tones that showed up in work by the above artists – a style that mixes folksy touches with bits of psychedelia – kind of a north east answer to the growing sound from the Minas Geraes generation around Milton Nascimento. Many of the tunes here are fairly mellow – building slowly with an honest, earthy integrity – and mostly relying on acoustic instrumentation to carry the gentle poetry of the lyrics, but still coming across with enough of an edge to appeal to fans of stronger South American rock. Titles include "Canto Funebre", "O Tempo", "Noite", "Desespero", "Cancao De Outono", "Do Amigo", and "Romance Da Lua Lua". CD

✨✧ Helen MerrillCasa Forte ... CD
EmArcy/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful album from Helen Merrill – one of the few jazz singers we can think of who continued to grow stylistically as the years went on! This majestic album was recorded in 1980, and it features Merrill dipping into a modern Brazilian bag – working with baroque arrangements that blend jazz and strings in the style of some of Milton Nascimento's work, but handled here with a more sensitive approach that has a lot more focus on the vocals on a few tracks. The track selection is wonderful – and the album features great versions of songs like "Wave", "Natural Sounds", "Like A Lover", "Casa Forte", "Antonio's Song", "Vera Cruz", and "So Many Stars". Arrangements are by Torrie Zito, but done with even more jazz than usual – thanks to the presence of players like Sal Nistico on tenor, Urbie Green on trombone, Bucky Pizzarelli on guitar, and Zito himself on piano.

✨✧ Quarteto Em CyQuarteto Em Cy (1972) ... CD
Odeon/Elemental (Spain), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic 70s album from this legendary harmony quartet – a female group that first emerged during the bossa generation in 60s Brazil, but who seem to hit an even more sublime sound with this rare gem from 1972! The setting is kind of post-bossa – maybe in the territory that Marcos Valle and some of his contemporaries were hitting – as the quartet work with fantastic arrangements from Edu Lobo and Luiz Eca of the Tamba Trio – in modes that are complicated and sophisticated, yet also straightforward and groovy – a perfect blend for the vocal harmonies! The album features the girls' incredible take on the Milton Nascimento song "Tudo Que Voce Podia Ser" – and other great tracks include "Quando O Carnaval Chegar", "Inclensa", "Cantoria", "Canto De Oba", and "Zanga Zangada". CD
Also available Quarteto Em Cy (1972) (180 gram pressing) ... LP 19.99
