All his essential early recordings as a leader, including the first three LPs in their entirety, plus rarities like his originals of Manha de Carnaval, O Nosso Amor and A Felicidade, from the sevens.

Madlib and Azymuth’s Ivan Conti!

Their legendary 1969 collaboration — featuring Whistle Stop, and Airto in full flight.

His debut, 1963 LP, including the hits Mas Que Nada and Chove Chuva. ‘New Style Samba’ — swirling bossa nova in big arrangements, with soaring choruses, lit up by Jorge’s minor-key guitar.

Dazzlingly eclectic post-bossa from Brazil, 1972.
