Softly, The Brazilian Sound

LP (Item 373173) Warner, Early 60s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 38

A whole new dimension of pop from the lovely Joanie Sommers – an album of bossa tunes, recorded with strings and backing by the great Laurindo Almeida! The style is wonderfully sweet – and works perfectly with Joanie's gentle vocals – and although not all the tunes are strict bossa standards, they're all taken in a similar mode, which makes for a really unified set. The album features a few tasty debuts – including "Old Guitarron" and "You Can't Go Home Again" – plus versions of "Meditation", "Quiet Nights", "Once", "Carnival", "That's All", and "Watching The World Go By". (German pressing. Cover has a bit of sticker residue in one corner.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

For Those Who Think Young
Warner, 1962. Very Good
Joanie Sommers thinks young here – not in a teen pop sense, but in a style that has plenty of youthful variety in the mix! The album's served up in two different modes – side one is a big band side, with backings from the great Marty Paich – and side two is a live performance, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sommers' Seasons
Warner, 1963. Very Good
Joanie Sommers takes on the seasons of the years – in a sweet little concept album that's almost her equivalent of Julie London's famous Calendar Girl record! Stan Applebaum's on hand to help with arrangements, and his styles here are a mix of jazzy backgrounds and some fuller, lusher styles ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stormy
Enterprise, 1970. Very Good+
Think what you might about Mr. B, but this is a sweet soulful album of dreamy pop songs, produced and arranged by Isaac Hayes, with a similar sound to some of the work from the same time by Grady Tate. Billy's voice is as deep and round as always, and the newer backing brings a nice quality to his ... LP, Vinyl record album
Latin Ala Lee!
Capitol, 1959. Very Good
Very groovy work from Peggy – a set of tunes tone with a nice little Latin flair! The tunes themselves are all Broadway hits of the late 50s and early 60s, but they're redone wonderfully here – so that they often bear little resemblance to the originals. Jack Marshall handled the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Only The Lonely
Capitol, 1958. Very Good
One of Sinatra's last great ballad albums for Capitol – a sad and dreamy batch of tunes that kicks off with the incredible "Only The Lonely" – one of those Sinatra torch songs that's so great, so sad, nobody else has ever been able to record a better version, nor have they ...

Ella In Hollywood
Verve, Early 60s. Very Good
A nice little Verve session that breaks from the usual format – especially the "Songbooks" one – and features Ella in LA with small group backing by Jim Hall, Lou Levy, Wilfred Middlebrooks, and Gus Johnson. The set was recorded live at the Crescendo – in a jazzily ... LP, Vinyl record album
