Los Diplomaticos En Samba – Con Paulo Roberto Al Organo

LP (Item 427056) Philips (Brazil), Early 60s — Condition: Very Good

A rare bit of samba jazz from Brazil – the only album we've ever seen by this Hammond-lead combo featuring organist Paulo Roberto! Roberto's sound is clean and lean – very much in the spirit of Walter Wanderley from the same period, and backed here with a similar blend of snapping percussion, plus bits of guitar, sax, and trumpet that really further the groove of the set! Rhythms are a mix of samba and bossa modes – and the record reminds us a fair bit of Ed Lincoln's best records – with lots of groovers throughout! Titles include "Murmurio", "Praca Onze", "Quem Me Dera", "Chorou Chorou", "Zelao", "O Morro Nao Tem Vez", and "E Voce Nao Dizia Nada".  © 1996-2020, 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 Jorge Ben stuff – very swingin', with a tight jazzy sound. Includes a lot of his early compositions, played by a big orchestra. With the cuts "Zope Zope", "Samba Menina", and "Samba Legal" – but the whole album is fantastic! Hard raspy Brazilian ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philips (Brazil), Mid 60s. Very Good+
A lively batch of pop samba stuff from this big Brazilian artist of the 60's. The tracks are all fairly uptempo, with a sing song rhythm sound, and a nice 60's Brazilian pop groove. Tracks include "Leva Meu Samba", "Saudade Dela", "Sai Do Meu Caminho", "Vida De ... LP, Vinyl record album
Elenco (Brazil), 1970. Near Mint-
Bossa piano, harmony vocals, and a sound that's unlike anyone else – heard here in some really classic sides by Brazil's legendary Tamba Trio!

Astrud Gilberto

September 17, 1969
Verve, 1969. Near Mint-
One of the grooviest records ever from the lovely Astrud Gilberto – a session that beautifully mixes her usual bossa nova with bits of Sunshine Pop and other hip late 60s grooves – all in a mode that really takes off a lot more than other Gilberto albums on Verve! The style here is ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66

Equinox
A&M, 1968. Very Good
The second album by Sergio and crew – and a real push forward for the group! The basic format of two-female harmony leads is still in place – but for some reason, this album gives a bit more of a nod to Brazilian roots than before, and really spices things up with an even more ...

Sunrise
Pablo, 1984. Very Good+
Sweet Brazilian rhythms – one of the tightest of the Pablo albums by Paulinho Da Costa, but still a nice batch of Brazilian tinged fusion, with a smooth production style that reminds us of some of the Japanese albums of the same sort during the late 70s! The set was recorded in LA, with help ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tania Maria

Lady From Brazil
Manhattan/EMI, 1986. Near Mint-
You know, despite the fact that this one was recorded in the mid 80s, when we felt that Tania's great jazzy vocal style was being buried in excessive arrangements – in retrospect, it's actually got some darn nice moments. These include the great "Tanoca Vignette", a lively number ... LP, Vinyl record album
