O Melhor De Rosa Passos

CD (Item 515042) Universal/Velas (Brazil), 1997 — Condition: Used
$24.99 ...


Originally: 29.99
A beautiful little set of modern Brazilian vocal jazz tracks, pulled from the rich recording history of one of Brazil's better recent voices. Rosa's got a style that reminds us of Elis Regina's classic work, especially that from the late 60s with Roberto Menescal – but the overall sound of the recordings is a bit more modern, not in instrumentation (which is spare, simple, and great!), but in recording quality, which is a bit more sophisticated than some of the older Phillips sessions. Rosa's voice is lovely throughout, and the tracks all have a pretty lively feel. Titles include "Curare", "Juras", "Valera A Pena", "Aquas De Marco", "Zanga Zangada", and "Chovendo Na Roseira".  © 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.
