Afro Samba Jazz – The Music Of Baden Powell

CD (Item 517008) Adventure Music, 2009 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD


A wonderful tribute to the music of Baden Powell – way different than the simple solo acoustic set that you might normally get – and instead, a cool batch of larger arrangements that showcase a totally different side of Powell's tunes! The album's a great reminder that amidst some of his better-known sets of spare guitar work, Baden Powell also participated in some key larger ensemble sessions too – creating music that had a really lasting legacy in Brazil – brought back to light beautifully here by the team of Mario Adnet and Philippe Baden Powell. Arrangements are both by Adnet and Powell – and Mario plays guitar, and Philippe plays a bit of piano – alongside some fuller instrumentation that really shades in the tunes wonderfully. Titles include "Pai", "Alode", "Berimbau", "Yansan Suite", "Canto De Xango", "Ritmo Afro", "Caxanga De Oxala", "Lamento De Exu", and "Canto De Ossanha".

Additional Marks & Notes

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.
