Jazz Com Bossa (Instinct pressing)

Out Of Stock

CD

✈

A really groundbreaking little set – the revival of bossa influence on the Japanese scene, presented here by a host of hip talents from the earliest years of the club jazz scene! The album's got a wonderful vibe through and through – a sound that was later taken up by bigger names from Japan, but which has a perfect sort of feel here – never too over the top, never too muddled up with dancefloor elements – and often turned towards subtle sounds and themes bring the record a nice sense of depth. The "bossa" here is one that comes more in spirit overall – as the album's never a simple copycat of Brazilian modes – and as such, it really shows the way that Japanese artists of the time were stepping out strongly to forge their own grooves and rhythms. Titles include the beautiful "Moonstone", plus Sama Nexusia" by DJ Matsuoka, "Breathing" by Skipjack, "Summer Rain" Gleeps, "Teriyaki" by Blue Bongos, "Living Day By Day" by Loud Step Market, "Message In The Music" by Rhythm, "Sol De Primavera" by Arco Iris, and "Love Bossa Style" by Amore Hirosuke & Love Machine.  © 1996-2021, 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.
