CD

✈
A really groundbreaking album of Brazilian sounds – a set recorded in the mid 90s by a London label – but one with a vibe that stretches back to the most important classics of the Brazilian scene in the 60s and 70s! In a way, the whole record's a bit out of time – nothing at all like Brazilian music being made in the 90s, and really the beginning of a moment of British-based preservation of lost genius that would flower in countless reissues and new recordings from labels like Mr Bongo and Far Out! Yet this set preceded most of those – and marks a first effort along those lines – done with help from Joe Davis of Far Out, and a key combination of Brazilian talents from previous decades – including singers Celia Vaz and Wanda Sa, drummer Tutty Moreno, saxophonist Teco Cardoso, trombonist Raul De Souza, percussionist Pirulito, and the most legendary talents of Joyce and Sivuca! The tunes have this beautiful mixture of natural, organic energy and modern jazz inflections – very much like the kind of sounds that Hermeto Pascoal and Airto unlocked with Quarteto Novo, but also with the energy of Joyce's classic material too – recorded beautifully, with an instantly timeless vibe. Titles include "Batucada No 1", "Capoeira", "Magica", "Berimbau", "Amazon River", "Misturada", "Forro", and "Zanzibar".  © 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 only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

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 describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.
