    I've been posting a lot of Brazilian music in the Jazz Beat thread where I think it sort of can belong. but I'm listening to it more and more now as my parents are big Jobim fans and I am spending all my time at their house helping them take care of themselves, so I brought over many of my Brazilian cds and have been spinning them a lot.

    Thought it might be fun if there are others out there listening to Brazilian music to list what we're listening to.

    Right now, here in Bay Village very far from Brasil it's:

    Recently picked up Hard Bossa, a UK two-disc comp of hard bossa stuff from Elenco, early-to-mid sixties, but with a few later things. I have some of this on vinyl already, but it's always having it on CD.

    I love "A Minha Menina" on this Os Mutantes album. I got into it through Beck's championing of the band (and his style pastiche Tropicalia). I'd like to explore more Brazilian music in future.

    Is it OK to listen to the Old Beat?


    Listening to the vinyl though. Roberto had a US LP issued around this time but it never caught on due to the language barrier I assume. I also listen occasionally to Baden Powell, Nascimento, Jobim, Elis Regina.

    "Natural" is a GREAT bossa album. This is one of the few albums I wish I had never traded away once I decided to "go vinyl". ****.

    Great thread! Think I'll dive into the Brazilian section of my collection when I get home from vacation, now that summer is in Full Effect.

    I was just spinning Edu Lobo last night. Summer and Brazilian music do seem to go together. I love Brazilian music.

    That Edu Lobo on A&M is AMAZING.

    Just bought a DSD-remastered, Bomba Records (Japan) reissue of Wanda Sa's Vagamente. There's a innocence to early bossa records like this, as if they were making it up as they went along in the studio-- it's very compelling. I'd place this record right up there with early Edu, Marcos, Nara et al.

    Btw, speaking of early bossa-era records-- is anyone familiar with Ana Lucia's album Canta Triste? That one's also available from Bomba in DSD remastering by Seigen Ono.

    I've really been enjoying the tribute album to Joao Gilberto ("Amorosa") that Rosa Passos made with Al Schmitt's masterful engineering. Truly lovely work, all around.

    I love Brazilian music but, don't have as much as I'd like too. Lately I've been listining to Os Afro Sambas - Baden Powell and Vinicius de Moraes and The Hips of Tradition Brazil 5 - Tom Ze.

    Can anyone recommend some good Brazilian compilations?

    That Celso Fonseca album is quite good. Most of Brazilian music that I listen to comes from the 60s though.

    Here are a few that get a lot of play in my house.

    Another one of David Byrne's compilations from the Brazil Classics series. This one veers away from the well-trod avenues of Bossa Nova and MPB in favor of a the marginal genre know as Forró. Although vastly popular, it also carries a deep regional and class stigma. This isn't the beachside lilt of the well-to-do or the agitpop fuzz of sly students. Its been called "music for maids and taxis drivers." Fortunately, outsiders like Byrne and myself haven't been internalized the stereotypes; this makes it easier to latch onto the accordion solos and insistent grooves.

    Triste Janero

    This is a fun, soft pop-bossa-Brazilian influenced American band from Dallas that I just discovered through Steve Stanley.

    They just had the one album, Meet Triste Janero...
