Contemporary takes on older styles from the northeast of Brazil – particularly the older forro modes of the generation of Luiz Gonzaga Sr, plus some other styles as well – all served up with a warmly jazzy finish! The project's headed by pianist Jovino Santos Neto, who also plays some melodica on the set too – using the instrument in ways that recall accordion lines of older recordings – although those elements also come through in the album's accordion work by Toninho Ferraguitt. Other instrumentation includes harmonica, 10-string guitar, and plenty of great woodwinds – including a bit of flute from Jovino – and titles include "Passareio", "Festa Na Macuca", "Donkey Xote", "Borborema", "Forro Vino", "Biboca", "Rede Sossego E Chamego", and "Saudade De Sua Gente".

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. 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.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

Current

We're not sure if the "current" in the title applies to the fact that Jovino Santos Neto is playing a bit of Fender Rhodes this time around – but we certainly like that change, and it helps give the record an even richer feel than some of his previous albums! As before, there's a ... CD
