CD

✈

A record we'd love to know more about – because the sound and presentation is so amazing! The set brings a bossa vibe to a mixture of American jazz and soundtrack tunes – often folding two tracks into one performance, and couching the melodies in some fuller strings and lighter, lively rhythms – with a quality that almost feels a bit like Henry Mancini taking on bossa nova material – or maybe like some of the fuller arrangements done by the young Deodato at the time! No surprise, there's some great Mancini numbers in the mix – along with other cool tunes too – served up with instrumentation that often has some rootsier percussion on the bottom, which blends in a great way with the larger charts – on titles that include "So In Love/Echo Of Love", "Sally's Tomato/Teach Me Tonight", "Mr Lucky/Speak Low", "Just For Tonight/Moon River", "Dansero/The Misfits", "Oba La La/La Puerta", and "Fly Me To The Moon/Our Day Will Come".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

Samba Na Onda
Equipe/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1965. Used
An upbeat groover from 60s Brazil – a highly percussive album that features work by Wilson Das Neves and Rubens Bassini – plus some excellent chorus vocals too! The whole thing's maybe a bit more of a hard-driving example of the Brazilian harmony mode heard from bigger groups like ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1968. Used
A sweet little pairing of the keyboards of Sergio Mendes and the early arranging styles of Dave Grusin – and a set that's quite different than some of Sergio's vocal albums with Brasil 66! The style here is all instrumental – and Mendes plays both piano and electric piano, plus a bit ... CD

Gilberto Gil

O Viramundo (Ao Vivo)
Polygram (Brazil), 1972/1974. Used 2 CDs
Wonderful live work by Gilberto Gil – recorded on his triumphant return to Brazil in the early 70s! The groove is very very stripped down – and most tracks feature Gil out front on guitar, with backing by only keyboards and percussion. If you know Gil's work, though, you know that he ... CD
Som Livre (Brazil), 1979. Used
A nice late 70s mix of MPB and samba – put together with the rootsy feel of the latter, but also some of the more creative song styles of the former! There's a tightness here that's unusual for a samba record – especially at the time – and although the instrumentation features ... CD

Universal (Brazil), 1999. Used
An excellent album of modern soul tracks by one of Brazil's current R&B stars! If you don't know Ed Motta, he's got a deep rich voice, a real talent for writing songs, and a strong respect for R&B tradition that runs the gamut from Leroy Hutson to R Kelly. This album features remixes of ... CD

Ed Motta

Dwitza
Universal (Brazil), 2002. Used
Incredible stuff – an instant classic, and a record that will blow your mind! Ed Motta is known to most as one of Brazil's leading soul singers – a nephew of Tim Maia, and the one true heir to the unique Brazilian soul sound that Maia formed in the 70s. And while we've loved Ed's ... CD
