Samba De Flora

CD (Item 605066) Montuno, 1988 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

CD


4.70 2

One of the greatest Airto records ever – a really overlooked record cut for the mostly-Latin Montuno label in the 80s! The album's quite spare, and almost more in a Latin mode at times – given the harder percussion on the set, and the firey recording style given to the set by Montuno – but it also echoes some of the great spare styles that Airto used in his first American recordings, too – the sessions he cut for Cobblestone/Buddah right at the start of the 70s. Airto plays a range of percussion instruments, and Flora's on the set adding in some vocals – and the record also features great keyboards from Jorge Dalto, whose sound really ties thigns together nicely. Includes the classic "Samba De Flora", plus "Yahna Amina", "El Fiasco", "Dedos", "La Puerta", "Parana", and "Latin Woman".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Warner/Wounded Bird, 1979. New Copy
One of Airto's most polished records, and an album that we've really grown to love over the years! There's a pretty strong modern soul/R&B component to the album – but at the core, there's still a strong feeling for Brazilian rhythms, and the record's got a wonderfully warm Brazilian ... CD

Far Out (UK), 2014. New Copy
One of the best records in years from the mighty Far Out label – and a set that really takes the imprint back to its roots! The name of the record echoes the first Friends From Rio session that launched Far Out almost two decades ago – and like that classic, this one's a collaborative ... CD

Estatica
Far Out (UK), 2010. New Copy
An incredible record from Marcos Valle – maybe our favorite-ever of his recent-revival years! The sound here is sublime – a warm blend of funky rhythms, bossa roots, and larger orchestrations – all very much in the spirit of those legendary albums that Valle recorded for ... CD

Nara Leao (1968)
Philips (Japan), 1968. New Copy
Pure genius – a lost Nara Leao album from the late 60s, and a key piece in the puzzle of late 60s Tropicalia – a set we'd place right next to equally important records by Caetano Veloso, Gal Costa, and Os Mutantes! Although Leao always gets cited as one of the more revolutionary ... CD

El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
A set that really lives up to its title – especially considering that the music here is virtually the blueprint for the emergence of the modern in Brazilian music during the bossa generation! The collection features a range of different tunes from poet Vinicius De Moraes – an important ... CD

Joao
Verve (Japan), 1991. New Copy
A later album by bossa legend Joao Gilberto – but with all the fragile brilliance of his best early work! The album features arrangements by Clare Fischer – the wonderful talent behind some of the best Brazilian-tinged jazz sessions of the 60s and 70s, a perfect accompanist to Joao's ... CD

Brazil With My Soul
Barclay (Japan), 1978. New Copy
Incredible work from Tania Maria – recorded in France right before her departure for bigger fame in the US! The set's got a fully jazzy feel that we really really love – one that has Tania's fluid vocals and soulful piano alongside backings that are expanded past her usual trio – ... CD

Moondreams
A&M/CTI (Japan), 1969. New Copy
Walter Wanderley opens up wonderfully on both organ and electric harpsichord here – going for a very different sound than on his earlier records, and with plenty of great late 60s CTI touches! The music is as heavenly as you might guess from the title – a dreamy recasting of Brazilian ... CD

Mustang Cor De Sangue
EMI (Japan), 1969. New Copy
One of the greatest records ever by the legendary Marcos Valle – a set of pure genius that's beyond description – easily one of the key records that's got him so well-remembered in recent years! The record takes Valle's earlier bossa style, and filters it through a late 60s sense of ... CD

Kenya/Shout (Japan), 1978. New Copy
A very hip group from the 70s Philly scene – a jazz combo who've got a soulful swing and a wonderfully lyrical feel! The record has a bit of vocals, but really just added in as flavoring for the quartet's excellent instrumental interplay – a blend of tenor and flute with piano, bass, ... CD

Peggy Connelly
Bethlehem, 1956. New Copy
One of the greatest vocal jazz albums ever recorded for Bethlehem Records – a set that's got a lot more energy than some of the moodier, mellow vocal sets on the label – thanks to dynamic backings from the great Russ Garcia! Garcia's working here with his hip Wigville band – ... CD
