Windy

LP (Item 10626) Verve, 1967 — Condition: Very Good-
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

✈
❔
One of the hardest to find Astrud Gilberto records on Verve – and one of the best! Deodato, Don Sebesky, and Pat Williams did the arrangements – and the sound here is a bit different than some of the straighter Gilberto sets of the time – still very bossa-inspired, but also in a style that mixes in some great Sunshine Pop and 60s easy influences too – particularly on the tracks arranged by Williams! Tracks are all quite short, but get a heck of a lot of magic into a tiny space – and the album features some really wonderful songs that break Gilberto's pattern a bit – including versions of the Marcos Valle tracks "Crickets Sing For Anamaria" and "Chup Chup, I Got Away" – plus takes on "Windy", "Sing Me A Rainbow", "Never My Love", and "Where Are They Now?"  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Stereo MGM pressing. Cover has spotty aging and light wear.)

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Walter Wanderley

Batucada
Verve, 1967. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of our favorite Walter Wanderley albums ever – and a record that moves past the more familiar bossa trio style used on his hits for Verve, into groovier new territory with added players who include Dom Um Romao on drums and Marcos Valle on guitar! And not only is the lineup expanded, but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ed Lincoln

A Volta
Musidisc (Brazil), 1964. Good
Stunning! This is a beautiful mid-60s album bossa and samba organ grooves, played by the great Ed Lincoln, one of Brazil's best organ players ever. Unlike Walter Wanderley, Lincoln's got a sound and a style that's pretty darn crazy, and which is filled with all sort of pyrotechnics and tricks on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dorival Caymmi

Eu Nao Tenho Onde Morar
Odeon (Brazil), 1960. Very Good+
Magical early work from Dorival Caymmi – and the kind of record that easily shows why he was such a huge influence on Brazilian music! The album bubbles along with a lively mix of samba and larger orchestrations – Caymmi's wonderful vocals and songs filling up the set with a sense of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Copacabana (Brazil), 1986. Near Mint-
(Cover has some ringwaer, price sticker remnants, and some small blemishes/stained spots.) LP, Vinyl record album
Luaka Bop, 1989. Near Mint-
A lively collection of classic samba material – featuring some really nice gems from the revivalist era of the early and mid 70s. As with all Luaka Bop compilations, the liner notes are great, and provide a strong introduction to the music. There's a total of 13 cuts in all – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lenita Bruno

Work Of Love
Nucleus, 1967. Sealed
A light and dreamy set of Brazilian vocal tracks – recorded in 1967, and featuring the voice of singer Lenita Bruno, a strong 60s talent with a style that's somewhat like Sylvia Telles. Arrangements on the set are by Clare Fischer – who plays piano, organ, and electric harpsichord in a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Elis Regina & Jair Rodrigues

Dois Na Bossa - Numero 2
Philips (Brazil), 1966. Very Good+
A year after their debut, Elis Regina and Jair Rodrigues are back on stage with a second lively set of tracks – tightly smoking material that weaves together bossa, samba, and jazz – all with an edge that's almost even greater than Elis' later studio albums! Even at this young age, her ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sergio Mendes

Sergio Mendes (1975)
Elektra, 1975. Near Mint-
A very groovy batch of soul and pop tracks from Sergio, recorded with some nice smooth 70s arrangements, and nice jazzy production by Dave Grusin. The whole thing's got a very nice LA sound to it, and is a good adaptation of Sergio's pop Brazil sound to a more modern vibe. Sergio gets help from ... LP, Vinyl record album
Beverly (Brazil), 1978. Very Good+
Percussion, samba rhythms, and plenty of sweet organ lines! LP, Vinyl record album

Elza Soares & Miltinho

Elza Miltinho E Samba Vol 2
Odeon (Brazil), 1968. Very Good+
Elza and Miltinho's second set of samba tracks together – and a crackling good session that's filled with life, joy, and love! Like the other, this set features the pair trading back vocals in a really great style – one that has them leaping across the percussion to groove with each ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wilson Simonal

Dimensao 75
Philips (Brazil), 1974. Very Good+

Flying Dutchman, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold
A tasty compilation of Leon Thomas' work for the Flying Dutchman label – work that's clearly his best over the years, and which retains the original style of spiritual soul jazz that he pioneered with Pharoah Sanders. The groove here runs from open-ended soul jazz to some tighter numbers ... LP, Vinyl record album
