Swinger From Rio/Beat Of Brazil

CD (Item 481700) Atlantic/Collectables, 1966/1967 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock



Here's a reissue we never thought we'd see in the US! The folks at Collectables have put together 2 of Sergio Mendes' rarest, and earliest, albums – both of which were released by Atlantic in the mid 60's, but recorded earlier. Swinger From Rio was a jazz-oriented session, recorded in New York with a crack band of American players, like Art Farmer, Hubert Laws, and Phil Woods – plus guest appearances by Antonio Carlos Jobim and Chico De Souza. The groove here is mostly bossa instrumental, and titles include "Maria Moita", "Primavera", "Pau Brazil", "Batida Diferente", "Sambinha Bossa Nova", and "The Dreamer". Beat Of Brazil continues the same sort of bossa jazz groove, but the session was recorded in Brazil, and was originally issued by Philips under the name of Sergio Mendes & Bossa Rio (his early sextet group). Titles on that one include "Nana", "Noa Noa", "Neurotico", "Primitivo", and "Coisa No 2". The whole CD's a double-length bossa jazz groove party, and it's done up in a nicer format than the usual Collectables release. What a deal!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

Atlantic, 1966. Used
Although Herbie and Joao are listed together in the artist credits together for the record, they don't really play together on the record – as did Joao and Stan Getz on their album together. Instead, they trade off tracks of bossa nova material, recorded with Jobim in Rio – Joao's by ... CD
Atlantic (UK), 1966. Used
A great little record, and one that might be thought of best as a "Herbie Mann Plus" record – rather than a duet between the artists on the cover! Half the set features the American release of some great Joao Gilberto material from the early years in Brazil, with arrangements from ... CD

Nice overstuffed "best of" compilation that features work by Veloso that spans from his early Tropicalia years to the stuff he did as a pseudo-new wave artist in the early 80s. 7 cuts alone are from the pivotal year of 1968 – including "Shy Moon", "Lua De Sao ... CD
