Luiz Bonfa

LP (Item 48707) Dot, Mid 60s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 2

A pretty great little album from Bonfa – always one of the more corruptible bossa players, working here in a groovy set of pop arrangements by Deodato with a lively American twist! Some tunes are fast-driving bossa numbers with good jazz accompaniment, others have backing vocals in a wordless 60s style, and others are mellow and gentle. The best of these latter ones is "Oba Oba", which has great duet vocals by Pat Kirby and Bonfa – and other titles include "Coffee Beans", "Gentle Rain", "Batuque", "Summer Summer Wind", "Be Still", and "Love Birds".

Mercury, 1978. Very Good+
Excellent work from this smooth Chicago vocal group!

Shadow Of Your Smile
Verve, 1965. Near Mint-
One of Astrud Gilberto's greatest albums – and quite possibly our personal favorite! The record features beautifully understated arrangements by Joao Donato, Don Sebesky, and Claus Ogerman – and the instrumentation is a haunting mix of bossa rhythms with darker orchestrations that ...
