Antonio Carlos Jobim & Luiz Floriano Bonfa – Including Orfeu Da Conceicao

CD (Item 558767) El (UK), Mid 50s — Condition: Used
$16.99 ...

CD

Very early recordings of work penned by Antonio Carlos Jobim and Luiz Bonfa – nearly all of which predate their more familiar sides from the first years of bossa nova! The dates for these recordings are mostly between 1953 and 1956 – and they show a very early version of the bossa, one that's often built around lightly airy instrumental elements, but which still has some of the fuller flourishes of the generation before. The set's a bit short on notes overall, but does list the dates and players for each track – and even without that information, it's still a very useful illustration of what came before bossa nova – and why the bossa sound had a particular quality that was so different! Most tracks were penned by either Jobim or Bonfa, or both – and titles are a mix of instrumental and vocal numbers – with 27 tracks that include "Domingo Sincopado" by Edu, "Luar E Batucada" by Sylvia Telles, "Teu Castigo" by Daiva De Oliveira, "So Saudade" by Claudia Morena, "Violao No Samba" by Luiz Bonfa, "Samba Nao E Brinquedo" by Dora Lopes, "A Chuva Caiu" by Luiz Bonfa, "Passeio No Rio" by Luiz Bonfa & Ed Lincoln, and "Perdido De Amor" by Dick Farney – plus 8 tracks from the pair's great score to the play "Orfeu Da Conceicao", which was the precursor to Black Orpheus!  © 1996-2020, 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.
