Wonderful World Of Antonio Carlos Jobim

LP (Item 18414) Warner, 1965 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

4.50 2

A classic set of 60s bossa tracks by Jobim – one of the few albums he recorded during the decade in the US! This one's got backing by Nelson Riddle, and a gentle bossa sound that's in keeping with Jobim's other work from the time. The real treat, though, are Jobim's vocals – as he sings on most of the tracks, and many of them even feature him in English, which is a real delight! Filled with loads of nice cuts, including "Surfboard", "She's A Carioca", "Aqua De Beber", and "Favela". Very nice! (Gold label mono pressing. Cover has some discoloration from age.)  © 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.

Verve, 1963. Near Mint- Gatefold
Antonio Carlos Jobim's classic Verve session from 1963 – a tremendous record, done with a wonderful airy sound that became the trademark for bossa production in America – and which also had a great inspiration on the sound of mid 60s bossa in Brazil! Claus Ogerman arranged and conducts ... LP, Vinyl record album

RCA, 1970. Very Good
A wickedly wonderful record from Luiz Bonfa – one that has his bossa-inflected guitar style supported by larger arrangements by Marty Manning. The feel is kind of bossa meets 60s easy meets early CTI – as Manning's work reminds us a lot of the larger orchestrations penned by Don ... LP, Vinyl record album

Som Da Gente (Brazil), 1984. Near Mint-
A fantastic album of sharply-tinged jazz tracks from Hermeto Pascoal – one that we'd rank up there with some of his best records ever! The sound is very much in the spirit of Pascoal's A Musica Livre album – but also has an approach that's a bit more angular, and almost a bit more ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pablo, 1976. Near Mint-
Known world-round for his classic work with Sergio Mendes and Weather Report, percussionist Dom Um Romao is one of the greatest Brazilian musicians of all time, and this compilation of 1976 recordings for Pablo has him playing in a nice raw groove. The tracks have a beautifully jazzy sound, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Prestige, 1965. Good+
A killer album of soul jazz tracks that pairs together two of Prestige's best players! The firey Bobby Timmons is at the height of his career here – cutting long drawn-out piano grooves that are among some of the best of his young years. Lytle's always a killer – and his funky vibes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Perception, 1971. Good+
A sweet slow and groovy funk LP recorded by Dizzy for the Perception label! The record is similar to his other LPs from the time in that it's got a cool electric feel that you don't really associate with Diz. The whole album has a sly sweet funky sound that's part CTI/part Latin-tinged Dizzy ... LP, Vinyl record album
