Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim

LP (Item 32319) Reprise, 1967 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

(€- || £- || ¥-) (approx.)

A beautiful little album that shows a whole new side of Sinatra! Frank's a bit late on the bossa game – but the record's a wonderfully gentle batch of bossa nova tunes, performed with musical and occasional vocal accompaniment by Jobim, and larger orchestral backings by Claus Ogerman. Far more than a gimmicky fake bossa album – this is a wonderful set of tracks that show that Sinatra could still hit a gentle ballad without going as over the top as he did on some of his other Reprise work. Jobim's talent is very respected – and the record is a true blending of musical styles, in a way that does justice to both artists equally. Titles include "Change Partners", "Dindi", "Meditation", "How Insensitive", and "I Concentrate On You". (180 gram pressing on Rhino.)  © 1996-2017, 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.

Sweet moody stuff from the period when the duo of Ms. Sinatra and Mr. Hazelwood was electric in the studio.

Reprise, 1961. Near Mint-
Jimmy Witherspoon pays tributes to his roots in rhythm and blues – but he does so in a wonderful way, by bringing a more jazz-focused approach to the material here – thanks to some nice tenor work from Ben Webster!

A great little TV special from Trini Lopez – served up here with some great help from guests who include The Ventures and Nancy Ames!

Gemini Changes
Reprise, 1967. Very Good-
One of Morgana's moody LPs for Reprise, with Don Costa arrangements of cuts like "Sunny", "Watch What Happens", and "Amor En Paz". Very nice, very moody vocals, with a haunting feel that you don't always find in her other records! LP, Vinyl record album

Strangers In The Night
Reprise, 1966. Very Good+
A key turning point for Frank Sinatra in the 60s – a record that got him firmly back on the charts with a great new sound!

One of Paul Williams' greatest albums – produced by his friend and frequent collaborator Roger Nichols, with a style that's very much like the best work the pair recorded together!

Fantastic work from singer Pat Bowie – and a session that also features some key solos from Charles McPherson as well!

Swingin Singin!
Philips, 1962. Very Good+
Great early stuff by this swingin' French vocal group! These guys swung as hard as American groups, like Lambert, Hendricks, and Ross – but they stuck to hipper, jazzier material, and had a driving sound that never let up! The group is led by singer Mimi Perrin, who also handed the ... LP, Vinyl record album
