Brasil 86

LP (Item 360114) A&M, 1986 — Condition: Sealed

One of Sergio Mendes' strongest soul sets of the 80s – a record that seems to bring his music back into focus a bit more than some of the previous albums – even though it still keeps things strongly in a contemporary R&B mode! Production and arrangements here are shared by Sergio with Peter Wolf – who's got a surprisingly subtle touch at times – and vocals are by Lani Hall, Siedah Garrett, Michael McDonald, and Philip Ingram – as well as the older Brazilian singer Gracinha Leporace. Tracks have some slight Brazilian touches, but the overall style is mostly smooth quiet storm 80s R&B – with titles that include "Daylight", "Take This Love", "What Do We Mean To Each Other", "Your Smile", "The River", "No Place To Hide", and "Here Where I Belong".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Philips (Brazil), 1962. Good
The first-ever album from the legendary Tamba Trio – and the start of an amazing 60s run that really set them apart from other bossa combos of the time!

... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner, 1977. Near Mint-
Quite different from Flora's earlier work, but in a way that we find quite compelling! The record was produced by Leon Ndugu Chancler, and it's got a smooth fusion sound that's kind of in a southern California R&B mode, played by a huge range of excellent Brazilian and west coast talents that ...

Abril Cultural (Brazil), 1970s. Near Mint- Gatefold
Great work from two of Brazil's greatest modernists! Although the cover makes it look like they're playing together on the album, the record features a side apiece of work by each composer/musician.

Jose Roberto Bertrami

Dreams Are Real
Milestone, 1984. Very Good+
Soaring keyboard work from Jose Roberto Bertrami of Azymuth – done with a sound that's slightly smooth – keyboards that show a bit more of a mid 80s sound, but still recorded with the sense of soul and space that makes Bertrami so great! There's a gently flowing quality to most of ... LP, Vinyl record album

A pretty nice set of samba and bossa instrumentals – all performed by the orchestra of Carioca, a leader who's got a similar style to Lyrio Panicali – mixing light and jazzy together in a 60s-styled Brazilian sound! Titles include "Nega", "Samba De Uma Nota So", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Messed up funky blues from drummer Willie Williams – here leading a Chicago group that includes work by Pinetop Perkins, Eddie Taylor, Roy Lee Johnson, Carel Bell, and Little Mack.
