Sergio Mendes — Dance Moderno ... CD 24.99
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.
(Out of print, 1998 Japanese pressing with obi!)

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.

Sergio Mendes

Arara
A&M, 1989. Used
There's a parrot on the cover, and the album's got a slightly more Brazilian feel than some of Sergio Mendes' other albums of the 80s – almost a return to the mix of soul and bossa grooves that Mendes was cutting back in the early part of the 70s! Brazilian influences abound here – not ... CD
Wrasse (UK), 1960s/Mid 80s. Used
Groovy groovy stuff – and a sweet little collection of Sergio's greatest work with his groups Brasil 66 and Brasil 88! The format of the ensemble was an instant hit – with 2 female voices harmonizing in the lead, bossa rhythms bubbling under the bottom, and plenty of sweet jazzy work ... CD

Sergio Mendes

Encanto
Concord, 2008. Used
An all-star effort from Sergio Mendes – one that follows nicely on the comeback energy of his previous Timeless set! Like that one, this album has Mendes dipping heavily into contemporary soul modes – picking up a bit of R&B, bits of hip hop, and bits of a few other styles – ... CD

Ivan Lins

Quem Sou Eu?
Philips (Brazil), 1972. Used
One of Ivan Lins' first albums – and a landmark set of MPB! The record shows a lot of strands of influence from the Milton Nascimento, Lo Borges, and Minhas Geraes camp – and it shares much of the same sense of jazzy scoring with the work of those artists. But most important is Lins' ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1971/1972. Used
2 later gems from Carlos Lyra – back to back on one CD! First up is E No Entanto E Preciso Cantar – a wonderful 70s session from bossa legend Lyra, and a set that's got a different sound than some of his earlier work – but one that's still plenty great overall! The mode is a bit ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1973. Used
The third volume of Phono 73 – a groundbreaking live concert that brought together some of Brazil's greatest artists of the early 70s, and which was one of the biggest musical events of the decade! The all-star concert was one of the first real expressions of musical freedom in the wake of ... CD

Jorge Ben

Jorge Ben (1969)
Philips/Dusty Groove, 1969. Used
A samba soul masterpiece from Jorge Ben – one of the most brilliant records to come out the fertile late 60s Brazilian scene – and an incredible album that works with the psychedelic flourishes of Ben's contemporaries and a deeper undercurrent of soul & funk! This is one of the ... CD

10 Anos De Toquinho & Vinicius
Philips (Brazil), 1979. Used
An incredible celebration of a decade of music from the team of Toquinho and Vinicius De Moraes – not a greatest hits collection, but instead a set that features new reworkings of their classics – all interwoven together in this really great way! The raspy vocals of Vinicius and the ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1987. Used
A great one from Nara Leao's "back to bossa" years in the late 80s – a set that has the lovely vocalist working through older American standards – but done here with new lyrics in Portuguese and some great bossa backings from Roberto Menescal! Menescal's airy style proved to ... CD
