The sound of global soul in the 21st Century – and an amazing set from the soon-to-be legendary Seu Jorge! Jorge's possibly best known for his appearances in films over the past few years – like The Life Aquatic or City Of God – but take it from us, he's one of the greatest living artists working in modern music – and has a sound, sense, and charm that will knock down barriers and boundaries all over the world! Unlike previous efforts, this album's incredibly spare – done in a style that often just features Jorge's vocals next to acoustic guitar, percussion, cavaquinho, and a bit of light keys. But that doesn't mean that the record's a sleeper – because it's got an incredibly full sound – an energy and excitement that pulses from the very first note, and which is carried off almost entirely by Seu Jorge himself! Even on the sparer, mellower tunes, the vocals have a power that's simply tremendous – transcendent of language, and reaching out in this really magical way. Titles include the sublime groover "Tive Razao", plus "Chatterton", "Mania De Peitao", "So Gonca", "Bem Querer", "Bola De Meia", and "Fiore De La Citta". Plus, the US pressing has 2 bonus remixes – "Mania De Peitao (jamais plus jamais mix)" and "Tive Razao (voltair mix)" – both quite nice, and not "dance" at all, but really just extrapolations of the original tunes!  © 1996-2022, 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.
