Dance Moderno

CD (Item 509208) Philips (Brazil), 1959 — Condition: Used
$9.99 ...

CD

Also available
Sergio Mendes — Dance Moderno (Japanese pressing) ... CD 9.99
The fab first album by Sergio Mendes – very different than his later work! Sergio's more in a straight bossa mode here – playing with a tight little combo that features saxophone and trombone next to his own firey work on piano – tight and jazzy, and even with a few traces of US Latin grooves as well! The album's proof that Sergio was already at the top of his game in the early years – and although released at the end of the 50s, the record's got a groove that would set the scene for countless bossa jazz albums to follow! Titles include the hard groovers "Oba-La-La" and "Outra Vez", plus versions of American jazz groovers like "Nica's Dream" and "On Green Dolphin Street" – and the cuts "Tema Sem Palavras", "Disa", "Diagonal", "Love For Sale", and "Satin Doll".  © 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 only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

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 describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.

Sergio Mendes

Pele
Atlantic (Japan), 1977. Used
Nice soundtrack that features Sergio Mendes' score to a film that starred football great Pele, made at the height of his career! The music's got the range of sounds that you'd expect from a soundtrack – with some mellow cuts, and some more uptempo ones, but the mix is great, and the sound is ... CD

Sergio Mendes

Swinger From Rio
Atlantic (Japan), 1964. Used
Sergio Mendes is definitely a swinger – especially on this jazz-based session that was recorded before his famous work with Brasil 66! This album was recorded in New York, at a time when Mendes was one of the hottest things brewing in the bossa scene in Brazil – and apart from the ... CD
Atlantic, 1968. Used
A sweet little pairing of the keyboards of Sergio Mendes and the early arranging styles of Dave Grusin – and a set that's quite different than some of Sergio's vocal albums with Brasil 66! The style here is all instrumental – and Mendes plays both piano and electric piano, plus a bit ... CD

Sergio Mendes & Bossa Rio

Voce Ainda Nao Ouviu Nada
Philips/Dubas (Brazil), 1964. Used
Early bossa jazz from Sergio Mendes – recorded with his famous Bossa Rio combo, in the years before he moved to America! The album's a classic in Brazilian jazz – a tight album of bossa-inflected jazz tunes played with razor-sharp precision, handled with a style that went on to ... CD

Trio Esperanca

A Capela Do Brasil
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1992. Used
The first French album recorded by this legendary Brazilian trio – but one that also features plenty of guests from their homeland – including Djavan, Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Ivan Lins, Joao Bosco, and Milton Nascimento! The group sing in a mode that's every bit as acapella as ... CD

Trio Esperanca

Segundo
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1995. Used
Incredibly beautiful work from this trio of female Brazilian singers – a group who recorded in France in the 90s, but who have a quality that goes right back to some of the best harmonies of the bossa nova generation! Most of the tracks are straight acapella, and feature haunting vocal ... CD

Gilberto Gil

Louvacao
Philips (Brazil), 1967. Used
A brilliant early moment for the young Gilberto Gil – a set recorded right before his jump into the Tropicalia movement, but with a sound that's already pretty darn unique! The style here has Gilberto singing upfront and playing acoustic guitar – in a mode that's certainly rooted in ... CD

Antonio Carlos Jobim

Personalidade
Philips (Brazil), Mid/Late 60s. Used
Excellent work by Jobim – spanning the mid 60s late bossa years, into the early 70s baroque ones, when his mad compositional genius was really opening up! The set's a great way to get some of these cuts on vinyl – as they're not actually as easy to track down as we'd like. Roberto ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1973. Used
What a dream! The work of Chico Buarque is arranged by Edu Lobo – and the sound is fantastic! We've always loved Chico's songwriting from this period – but it's made even better by Edu, who's working here in a sharp jazzy mode, similar to that which he used on his Missa Breve album ... CD

The best of Brazil, old and new – as Joao Gilberto meets up with a younger generation of Brazilian vocalists – Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, and Maria Bethania – all for a wonderful session of stripped-down bossa! The work is very much in Joao's best style of the early 70s – ... CD

Joao Gilberto

Personalidade
Philips, Mid 60s. Used
