Magic Lady

LP (Item 380265) Elektra, 1979 — Condition: Very Good+
It's a long way from the Brazil 66 days, and Sergio's working here in a style that's got more of an American soul sound than a Brazilian one. But we're not holding that against him – because like another Brazilian contemporary, Deodato, Sergio manages to bring a unique quality to his take on American soul – using a bit more jazz than usual, and opening things up for a dose of sunshine on the best cuts. Singers on the set include Bonnie Amaro, Carol Rogers, and Marietta Waters – and the album features work by musicians that include Tom Scott, Clifford Coulter, and Oscar Castro Neves. Titles include "I'll Tell You", "Lonely Woman", "Magic Lady", "Let It Go", "Summer Dream", and "Yes I Love You".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has light wear.)

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.

Sergio Mendes

Sergio Mendes (1983)
A&M, 1983. Near Mint-
Upbeat soul from Sergio Mendes – but a record that's still got a Brazilian heart beating underneath! The sound of the set is very much in the best mainstream soul modes of the time – never too electric overall, but put together with a nicely warm groove that continues the legacy of ...

Quarteto Em Cy

Chico Em Cy
Fama (Brazil), Early 90s. Very Good+
Groovy batch of tracks by the lovely Quarteto Em Cy, Brazil's foremost female vocal group. The album's a tribute to the great Chico Buarque, and the tracks are largely Buarque's originals, done in the ladies' haunting breezy style. Titles include "Tamandare", "Tem Mais Samba", ...

4 Corners, 1968. Very Good+
Great great great early stuff from Jorge Ben! He cut this album right on the heels of his big hits "Mas Que Nada" and "Chove Chuva", and the record's filled with peppy, jazzy, samba-sounding tracks, sung by Ben in a deep soulful voice. The set's a perfect bridge between the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Egberto Gismonti

Sol Do Meio Dia
ECM, 1977. Near Mint-
Spare European work from Egberto Gismonti – a set that's different than his fuller earlier work from Brazil, but still pretty compelling overall! Gismonti's playing here with a group of familiar ECM artists – mixing his own piano, guitar, and percussion lines with soprano sax from Jan ... LP, Vinyl record album

Quarteto Em Cy

A Arte De Quarteto Em Cy
Fontana (Brazil), 1960s/Early 70s. Near Mint- 2LP
A stunning collection of work by one of the greatest harmony groups in Brazil – the lovely Quarteto Em Cy, a four-voiced set of females with a really dreamy tone! The 24 track set brings together some of the group's best work from their 60s and early 70s recordings for Elenco and Philips ... LP, Vinyl record album

Elton Medeiros

Elton Medeiros
Estudio Eldorado (Brazil), Mid 70s. Near Mint-
A classic 70s set from sambista Elton Medeiros – sung to gentle arrangements from Rildo Hora, Cristavao Bastos, and Paulinho Da Viola! The set's got a mix of acoustic percussion, guitars, and just a hint of light woodwinds – carried off in the new traditional spirit of Da Viola's best ... LP, Vinyl record album

Antonio Carlos Jobim

Terra Brasilis
Warner, 1980. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Pretty great sounds from the legendary Antonio Carlos Jobim – an album cut a bit later than his bossa years, but with a darkly sophisticated sound that's pretty darn compelling! The album features larger orchestrations by Claus Ogerman, and in a way, it's similar to the Jobim album on Decca ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hermeto Pascoal

Brasil Universo
Som Da Gente (Brazil), 1985. Near Mint-
One of the many excellent albums cut by Hermeto Pascoal during the 80s – perhaps a bit smoother than earlier work, but no less excellent! The session has Hermeto playing with a group of young fusion players – doing sort of an electric version of the offbeat jazz stylings that he'd laid ... LP, Vinyl record album

Flora Purim

Butterfly Dreams
Milestone, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold
Pure vocal magic – featuring the lovely Flora Purim at the height of her California powers – working in a sublime mix of jazz, fusion, and Brazilian rhythms – a sound that she virtually invented! The group on the set is one of her greatest of the time – with players that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Denise LaSalle

On The Loose
Westbound, 1973. Near Mint-
A pretty sweet follow-up to Denise LaSalle's debut for Westbound – and like that set, another album recorded down in Memphis – with a razor-sharp sound that's far better than the treatment she got in later years! Arrangements are by Bowlegs Miller, who helped on the first – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Smokey Robinson

Pure Smokey
Motown, 1974. Very Good+
Excellent mid 70s work from Smokey, recorded right before his landmark Quiet Storm album, and in a smooth sophisticated style that showed that he was definitely on the right track after splitting from the Miracles! The sound here is totally great – a new level of sophistication for Robinson, ... LP, Vinyl record album
