Love Dance – The Ballad Album

CD (Item 70425) Milestone/JSR, 2003 — Condition: New Copy

CD


4.80 38

A relatively mellow vocal outing from Ithamara Koorax – a voice that was introduced to us from her appearances on some groovy Brazilian dancefloor tunes, including some of those from Dom Um Romao's albums! The style here is quite different – very laidback, and in the ballad mode you'd expect from the "love" in the title. Instrumentation is a blend of mellow Brazilian and American jazz styles – with work by Jose Roberto Bertrami, Dom Um Romao, Luiz Bonfa, and Nelson Angelo – on titles that include "I Loved You", "Love Dance", "La Puerta", "Man Alone", "Amparo", and "Someday".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Lush Life
Atlantic (Japan), 1956. New Copy
A wonderfully moody vocal outing from Joe Mooney – a lesser-remembered singer from the 50s, but one of our favorite talents from that generation! Joe's got a style of singing that's in the more fragile mode of male vocalizing – similar to Matt Dennis, but a bit more boozy overall ... CD

Forma/Think (Japan), 1965. New Copy
Stunning sounds from the lovely Ana Margarida – heard here on a rare outing for the legendary Forma label! The set's got some qualities that link it to the bossa material from Brazil at the time, but it's also got a much deeper sense of arrangement and presentation too – thanks to the ... CD

Elenco/Think (Brazil), 1969. New Copy
Late harmony vocals from the 60s bossa scene in Brazil – the only album we've ever seen by this obscure trio, but a set we'd put right up there next to the best work by Tamba Trio or MBP4! Like both of those groups, these guys have a style that's rooted in jazz harmony modes from the ... CD

Elenco/Think (Japan), 1970. New Copy
A bit bossa nova, a bit easy listening, and a very groovy group from the late years of the Elenco label! The group's headed up by Jose Briamonte, but gets some key help on the session from Roberto Menescal – who's clearly got the right ear for Briamonte's mix of strings, piano, and some ... CD

Philips/Think (Japan), 1970. New Copy
Tremendously beautiful work from Claudette Soares – and just the kind of record to show why she was different than some of her contemporaries in Brazil! The album's got a nice little groove on most numbers – even the mellower ones – a style that's a bit like the best Blue Brazil ... CD
