Musica De Brinquedo

CD (Item 552416) Microservice (Brazil), 2010 — Condition: Used
$16.99 ...


A sweet little set from contemporary Brazil – music that's got some slight quirky touches, but a distinctly Brazilian groove overall! Pato Fu mix up older modes with ease – echoes of bossa nova, French 60s pop, and even a bit of Anglo rock – but all filtered together with the creative interplay that you'd find in some of the more compelling Brazilian acts of the past decade or so – particularly some of those who've crossed over nicely to an American audience. The female lead vocals are great light and lovely, in a bossa tradition, but with a nice raspy undercurrent too – and titles include "Frevo Mulher", "Primavera", "Sonifera Ilha", "My Girl", "Love Me Tender", "Twiggy Twiggy", and "Live & Let Die".  © 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.

Verve, 1991. Used
A later album by bossa legend Joao Gilberto – but with all the fragile brilliance of his best early work! The album features arrangements by Clare Fischer – the wonderful talent behind some of the best Brazilian-tinged jazz sessions of the 60s and 70s, a perfect accompanist to Joao's ... CD

Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66

Ye-Me-Le (Japanese pressing)
A&M (Japan), 1969. Used
Way past the hits, and into some really great territory – a move that makes the record one of our favorite Sergio Mendes sets for A&M! The sweeter bossa pop style here is undercut with a bit more influence from late 60s Brazilian grooves – some of the more baroque turns that Sergio' ... CD

Egberto Gismonti

Danca Dos Escravos
ECM/EMI (Brazil), 1988. Used
No keyboards, no percussion, no other instrumentation at all – just acoustic guitar from the great Egberto Gismonti, but used at a tremendously creative level! The songs are loose and free – never outside, but also not bossa or samba either – always those new paths forward that ... CD
A&M (Japan), 1966. Used
The start of a legend – and the very first album by Sergio Mendes' Brasil 66 group, proudly brought to the world through the godlike talents of a young Herb Alpert! Sergio was no stranger to the recording studio by the time of this set, but the record marked a real shift in his music – ... CD

Features Dom Salvador on piano, Laura Dreyer on alto, Rodrigo Ursaia on tenor, Luis Bonilla on trombone, Itaiguara Brandao on bass, and Mauricio Zottarelli on drums. CD
Chrysalis, 1994. Used
Part of a generation of US Acid Jazzers we could never really get behind at the time, this set fares a little better in retrospect. The playing has a crispness about it that we felt lacked edge back then, but betrays a debt to some of our favorite 70s jazz funk on second listen. Includes "Jaz ... CD

Zero Crossing

My Kinda Funk
Perfect Toy (Germany), 2005. Used
The first full length set from Zero Crossing – an album of stark electronics and jagged rhythms that follows nicely in the spirit of their earlier singles! The sound here is definitely steeped in some of the colder waves coming from the German scene of late – that style that's explored ... CD

Big Boss Man

Last Man On Earth
Blow Up (UK), 2014. Used
Maybe the coolest record we've ever heard from this mod British combo – a set that gets way past the easy retro references of previous albums, and goes for a vibe that's quite complicated, but still pretty darn groovy! The set's got the look and feel of the best jazzy soundtracks of the 60s ... CD
