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.

Sinal Fechado
Philips (Brazil), 1974. Near Mint-

Memoria De Pele
Philips (Brazil), 1989. Very Good
One of Maria Bethania's great collaborations with arranger Jaime Alem – an artist we loved as part of the team of Jaime & Nair back in the 70s, and who's really helping Bethania find some deeper space here in the middle years of her career! At a time when Maria had moved into some of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Elis Regina

Elis Regina in London
Philips (Brazil), 1969. Very Good+
Elis Regina hits the London scene of the late 60s – with amazing results that make the album one of her best from the early years!

Balancando
Odeon (Brazil), 1966. Good
A fantastically hard bossa nova jam led by the legendary Milton Banana – a man not only known as Joao Gilberto's favorite drummer, but also as one of the architects of bossa nova drumming and percussion!

Delirio (aka Certain Smile, Certain Sadness)
Verve (Mexico), 1966. Good
Kind of a dream combination in one little album – especially if you dig breezy bossa from the 60s!

Brasil
Soul Jazz (UK), 1994. Near Mint-
A really groundbreaking album of Brazilian sounds – a set recorded in the mid 90s by a London label – but one with a vibe that stretches back to the most important classics of the Brazilian scene in the 60s and 70s! In a way, the whole record's a bit out of time – nothing at all ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pablo, 1977. Near Mint- Gatefold
A tasty session of west coast Brazilian grooves – cut by the great percussionist Paulinho Da Costa, with a group that includes Claudio Slon, Larry Williams, and Lee Ritenour.

Luaka Bop, 1989. Near Mint-
A lively collection of classic samba material – featuring some really nice gems from the revivalist era of the early and mid 70s.

Smog/Mr Bongo (UK), 1972. Near Mint-
Freaky funky sounds from The Gentlemen – a Brazilian combo from the early 70s, and one who work in a really dark mix of modes! At some level, the group feel a bit like some of the 60s Jovem Guarda groups – in that they have a bit of an influence from Anglo rock, particularly the more ... LP, Vinyl record album

Made In Brasil with Victor M

Numero Um
Nucleus, 1975. Very Good+
A totally sweeeeeeeet batch of Brazilian grooves – recorded in San Francisco, with a great 70s Bay Area sound! Victor M leads the group on percussion and vocals – but the real charm of the set is in its electric piano riffing, and soulful electric vibe. Most of the cuts have vocals ... LP, Vinyl record album
