Gilberto With Turrentine

LP (Item 10640) CTI, 1971 — Condition: Very Good+
Gatefold
Incredible 70s work from the lovely Astrud Gilberto – a rare effort for the CTI label that has her teaming up with arranger Eumir Deodato and saxophonist Stanley Turrentine – all in a groove that's totally different than most of her earlier work! Astrud's breathy vocals are still wonderfully intact – but they're given a more spacious approach in the arrangements – strings mixes with rolling basslines, soaring keyboards, and stone cold tenor from Stanley – in a groove that's simply wonderful, and which takes off in a whole new direction than before! Other players include Airto, Sivuca, Hubert Laws, and Dom Um Romao – and tracks include classic versions of "Ponteio", "Vera Cruz", and "Zazueira" that are all some of the most grooving takes on the tunes ever – plus "Historia De Amor", "Where There's A Heartache", "Brazilian Tapestry", and "Wanting Things".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original pressing, with Van Gelder stamp.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

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.

Yellow Racket, 2022. Sealed
Brazilian singer Momo might well be taking the title of this album seriously – as the whole thing's got a nicely stripped-down vibe that's somehow even more powerful than before – like those mid 70s moments when Cateano Veloso dropped out some of the instrumentation, and let all the ... LP, Vinyl record album
EMI (Brazil), 1993. Very Good+
An overlooked gem from Joyce – an album that features a fair bit of help from famous friends! The set was recorded at a time when her star had faded a bit on the Brazilian market, but before she was yet to be rediscovered and re-recorded by labels in England and Japan – and despite the ...

Joao Donato

Bad Donato
Blue Thumb, 1970. Sealed Gatefold
A wickedly funky album from Joao Donato – quite different than his earlier bossa sessions, and recorded in LA with a sweet jazzy bounce! The album's overflowing with great keyboard work – and Joao plays both piano and organ, in a group that includes percussion from Emil Richards, who ... LP, Vinyl record album

RGE (Brazil), 1986. Near Mint-
(Cover has light wear and aging.) LP, Vinyl record album
SBA (Brazil), 1959. Very Good+
Dramatic work from Brazilian singer Maysa – a set that's nicely balanced between two generations – the later, cooler modes of the bossa generation, and some of the more emotive styles that had come before! Maysa's rich vocal approach makes her a key talent in the latter mode – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Maria Creuza

Voce Abusou
RGE (Brazil), 1971. Very Good
One of Maria Crueza's best recordings! It's one of her better albums of bossa nova work, given a bit of a 70's twist, and with the kind of percussive edge that you hear in some of Crueza's other albums. Mike Ribas arranged, and the album features guest performances by Sebastio Tapajos and Pedro ... LP, Vinyl record album

Oscar Castro-Neves & His Orchestra

Big Band Bossa Nova
Audio Fidelity, Early 60s. Very Good+
An excellent bossa session led by pianist Oscar Castro-Neves and his band, and recorded during the blitz of early bossa sessions by the Audio Fidelity label! The group's a large one, but not too large to lose the groove – and Castro-Neves put the whole thing together so that the album's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nelsinho e Sua Orquestra

Brazilian Beat Vol 2
London (Brazil), 1968. Very Good
A great entry in this wonderful series – a tight set of batucada and percussion tracks, played by one of Brazil's more popular bandleaders, in a tight format that adds in some groovy touches! And also like the rest of these, this one's also got a few tasty orchestral tracks that push past ... LP, Vinyl record album

Singers Unlimited

Friends
MPS, 1977. Near Mint-
One of the grooviest albums cut by this legendary MPS vocal group – a set that has some very hip friends from the American scene – who blend perfectly with the soaring vocals that the quartet forged in Germany for the MPS label! The music features vocal arrangements from group leader ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1961. Very Good+
Pretty great stuff – and not the gimmicky "dance" record you might guess from the title! The set's simply a collection of some of Ray's best hard-hitting R&B tracks for Atlantic – mostly recorded in the 50s, and brought together with this 60s title, in a package that also ...
