Rain Forest

LP (Item 10010) Verve, 1966 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 2

An album that not only broke the bossa big in the US – but a set that also really helped transform the sound of the organ in jazz! Not only is the record a key meeting of bossa rhythms and jazz organ – transplanted hugely to the US after a big initial Wanderley run in 60s Brazil – but the set also features some of the cleanest organ lines to ever hit these shores – a big difference from the heavier flutter that some of the US organists were using a few years before, and a sharp shift towards cleaner keyboard sounds for the rest of the decade. Instrumentation's nice and spare – mostly bass and percussion, plus a bi tof flute and guitar – and titles include the massive hit "Summer Samba", plus "Rain", "Beach Samba", "Song Of The Jet", "Cried, Cried", and "Girl From Ipanema".  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Cheganca
Verve, 1966. Near Mint- Gatefold
Bossa nova meets organ jazz – a real classic from the great Walter Wanderley, recorded right on the heels of his famous Rain Forest album for Verve! This set's in a very similar format to that one – core trio grooving with organ, bass, and drums – sometimes augmented with added ... LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, 1968. Very Good+
One of the grooviest Verve albums of all time – a rare American session from Brazilian legend Marcos Valle – and his only US album to feature vocals! The album's even dreamier than Valle's early bossa sides from Brazil – and the setting has some nice Verve-like touches from ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mato Grosso
Ariola (Brazil), 1982. Near Mint-
Less crazy than some of Matogrosso's earlier work – but done in a lively setting that always keeps the tracks pretty fresh, even if they are a bit slickly produced. Titles include "Uai Uai", "Alegria Carnaval", "Nao Faz Sentido", "Promessas Demais", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Vinicius/Toquinho
Philips (Brazil), 1975. Good+ Gatefold
One of the more lively, and more beautiful Vinicius albums from the 70s. Unlike a lot of others, which have spare production, and a little bit too little instrumentation – this one has some wonderful arrangements, in a manner that's similar to some of Jobim's from the same time, but with ...

Fruto Proibido
Som Livre (Brazil), 1975. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the first records that has Rita emerging to become one of the big female rock singers of Brazil – done in a style that's pretty straight, with some elements of older rock, and a tightly produced LA-style sound. The songs have some pretty good hooks, and Rita's overall style is a bit ... LP, Vinyl record album

Exotica
Liberty, 1957. Very Good
The birth of a sound and the birth of a legend – Martin Denny's first album in the Exotica series, and a record so great it named an entire genre! Denny certainly didn't invent the tropical style of easy listening that came to be known as "exotica" in the 50s – but with a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tell It Like It Is
A&M/CTI, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold
An early George Benson groover from the A&M years of CTI – a set that's quite different than his famous 70s sets, with a really unique sound overall! The arrangements here are by Latin Soul maestro Marty Sheller – who brings some of the vibe to the set that he brought to his 60s ... LP, Vinyl record album

Spirit Of The Boogie
De-Lite, 1975. Very Good+ Gatefold
Way more than just a "boogie" album – as you might think from the title – and much more a hard-hitting batch of funky tunes, mixed with some even cooler laidback numbers! The album follows heavily off the style of Wild & Peaceful – mixing together the group's older ... LP, Vinyl record album
