Meu Samba Torto (UK pressing)

CD (Item 520612) Far Out (UK), 2007 — Condition: Used
$6.99 ...

CD

Clara Moreno's working here with some famous help in the credits – but the sound of the album is definitely all her own, and even better than some of her other great sets in recent years! The style is mostly bossa, but served up with a slightly modern approach – not one that's electrified or remixed, but nicely free of cliches that try to hard to conjure up images from the old days – done in a sparely evocative mode that really gets to the best heart of the bossa, and re-presents it wonderfully with Clara's youthful talents! Moreno's on vocals throughout – although Celso Fonseca sings a bit on a few duets – and instrumentation includes acoustic guitar from both Fonseca and Joyce on some tracks, plus drums by Tutty Moreno. Most instrumentation is acoustic, and quite stripped down – sometimes only a bit of guitar, bass, and percussion behind the vocals – giving Clara plenty of room to stand on her own, center stage. Titles include "Rosa De Ouro", "Litoranea", "Sabe Quem", "Sei La", "Moca Flor", "Mon Manege A Moi", "Tenderly", "Ela Vai Pro Mar", "Vem Morena Vem", and "Copacabana".  © 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.

Grupo Batuque

Africa Brazil
Far Out (UK), 2000. Used
Possibly the best album ever by this excellent Brazilian percussive combo! The record begins the groove where the group's other albums started – by taking hard batucada rhythms, and tight samba grooves – but it also adds in a bit tighter production, and shows a marked commitment to ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2006. Used
Samba is their gift – and we're all that much richer for it! Os Ipanemas return here in one of their best albums so far – a beautiful blend of earthy percussion, samba rhythms, and just a bit of bossa jazz – put together with a style that's personal and spontaneous, recorded ... CD

Marcos Valle

Escape
Far Out (UK), 2001. Used
Fantastic new work from Marcos Valle – his best in years! The record has Marcos working in a sweet jazzy mode, with perhaps a bit less of the mania of earlier recordings, but no less soul. His voice has a wonderful quality on this one, slightly raspy, showing a bit of the hardship Marcos ... CD

Nova Bossa Nova
Natasha Imports/Far Out (Brazil), 1998. Used
The first album by Marcos Valle after years and years away from the studio – a set that really reintroduced his talents to a whole new generation! The set was recorded for the Far Out label in London – a then-new imprint who were doing a great job to bring back a Brazilian groove that ... CD

Azymuth

Carnival
Far Out (UK), 1996. Used
Surprisingly great recording by this legendary Brazilian fusion group. Surprising because it's so good, and waaay better than anything they've done in the past 10 or 15 years. The sound is nice and stripped down, and resembles their good early work much more than it does their more recent stuff. ... CD

Jose Roberto Bertrami & His Modern Sound

Aventura
Far Out (UK), 2009. Used
A different groove than usual for Jose Roberto Bertrami – and a record that definitely lives up to the promise of its title! Bertrami's really broken free from the regular Azymuth groove on this set – much more so than on some of his recent solo albums – playing here with a vibe ... CD

Azymuth

Partido Novo
Far Out (UK), 2002. Used
CD...$6.99 11.99
Warm, wonderful, and incredibly far-reaching in scope – possibly the most ambitious record cut by Azymuth in recent years – a perfect blend of jazzy fusion, Brazilian rhythms, and some of the London broken beat culture that the group have come into contact with through their label, Far ... CD

Tania Maria

Via Brasil Vol 1
Barclay/Sunnyside (France), 1974. Used
Gentle grace and jazzy bossa – a near-perfect album from Tania Maria, recorded during her best early years in Paris! The format of the album is extremely spare – a step away from Tania's earlier work in Brazil, and done in a small combo mode that features only Fender bass and ... CD

Moacir Santos

Choros & Alegria
Adventure Music, 2005. Used
The first full album in years from the legendary Moacir Santos – and a beautiful little album that's filled with all the deep feeling and inventive arrangement of his older work! As the title might imply, the set borrows song structure and spirit from the Brazilian choro tradition – ... CD
