Lord Astor E Danca

LP (Item 38305) Imperial, 1961 — Condition: Very Good
Lord Astor is Astor Silva, the Brazilian trombone player who grooved hard on bossa sessions like the famous Os Ipanemas record. This one's from a few years before than one, and has Astor leading a tight group through some jazzy samba tunes with an upbeat dancing style. The best tracks feature strong instrumental solos on trombone and alto sax – almost in a mode that would be taken up by bossa jazz groups a few years later – and the harder percussion brings a nice edge to the session that you wouldn't expect. Titles include "Oh Carol", "Fita Amareca", "A Noite Do Meu Bem", "Feitico Da Vila", and "The Diary".  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Early bossa album by the man who was one of the leading instrumentalists behind many of the bossa era's best singers. The set's fairly mellow, and all instrumental.

Pure genius from a young Chico Buarque – simple, effective, straightforward tunes – and music that has had a resonance in Brazil for many decades since!

CID (Brazil), 1978. Very Good
Very groovy! This is one of a few excellent albums made by the team of Jaime Alem and Nair during the 70s – and although the set's a tribute to the compositions of Dorival Caymmi, Jaime & Nair take the tunes and make them their own through some excellent jazzy backings. The arrangements ... LP, Vinyl record album
Som Livre (Brazil), 1976. Very Good
Excellent work by some of the greatest Brazilian singers and songwriters of the 70s! The material was recorded exclusively for this TV soundtrack in 1976 – and although the scope of the story stretches back to the early 20th century, the feel of most of the material is prime mid 70s MPB. ...

A record with a cheesy title and cover, but with a sound that's completely sublime – that transcendent vocal approach and incredible songwriting that makes just about any record by Ivan Lins a real treasure!

Meia Noite
RCA (Brazil), 1976. Very Good+ Gatefold
A sweetly mellow album from singer Maria Creuza – recorded with a bit more of a modern feel than some of her previous albums for RCA, less bossa touches, and a more romantic sound overall – one that has her vocals drifting over serious arrangements that have kind of a sad and late night ...
