Ouro Negro

CD (Item 596429) Adventure Music, 1960s/1970s/1990s — Condition: Used
2 CDs
Temporarily Out Of Stock


A fantastic collection of work by one of Brazil's greatest arrangers ever! Moacir Santos had an approach that was unlike anyone else – more complicated than Jobim, but with a gentle honesty that made any style sound spontaneous in his hands. The 2CD package features new versions of work from a number of different rare albums by Santos – including long out of print 60s sessions, his few Blue Note sides, and a few newer sets – and the sound of the album is very much in the vein of Santos' best moments from the 70s. Guest on the sessions include Ed Motta, Joyce, Milton Nascimento, and Joao Donato – and the quality of the work is impeccable, truly one of the greatest new releases we've heard from Brazil in years! Titles include "Coisa No 6", "Kathy", "De Repente, Estou Feliz", "Anon", "Coisa No 10", "Lamento Astral", "Marcatu, Nacao Do Amor", "Suk Cha", and "Bluishmen". 2CDs – and a great booklet too!  © 1996-2016, 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. 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.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

Afro Samba Jazz – The Music Of Baden Powell
Adventure Music, 2009. Used
A wonderful tribute to the music of Baden Powell – way different than the simple solo acoustic set that you might normally get – and instead, a cool batch of larger arrangements that showcase a totally different side of Powell's tunes! The album's a great reminder that amidst some of ... CD

A brilliant follow-up to the first Brasilianos set from Hamilton De Hollanda – one that's even more dynamic than the first, and which comes with a bonus DVD as well! The group is awash in warm acoustic sounds – Hamilton on 10-string mandolin, Daniel Santiago on acoustic guitar, Gabriel ... CD

Brasilianos 3
Adventure Music, 2012. Used
Really lovely work from Hamilton De Hollanda – the third entry in his Brasilianos series, and possibly the most compelling so far! Hamilton plays a 10 string mandolin with effortless ease – spinning out rich tones and colors that go far beyond traditional Brazilian use of a bandolim ... CD

EMI (Brazil), 1988. Used
The first album by Marisa, and one that's got a more straight-ahead feel than some of her later work. The record is a live recording (odd for a first album!) that has Marisa backed by a nice group that includes Roberto Alves on piano – and the set list includes a version of Os Mutantes' ... CD

EMI (Brazil), 2009. Used
Smoking live work from Seu Jorge – a set that follows nicely from his studio album America Brasil – with grooves that are as full and soulful as that one! Gone are the sparer, more folksy modes that Seu Jorge used in the past – and in their place is a more rounded approach to ... CD

A really sweet set of bossa vocals from Kay Lyra – her first album as a solo act, and a wonderfully done session that's got a lightly jazzy feel throughout! The instrumentation is mostly acoustic – guitar, percussion, flute, and saxes – used in a light and dreamy way that's a ... CD

Philips (Brazil), 1967. Used
A brilliant early moment for the young Gilberto Gil – a set recorded right before his jump into the Tropicalia movement, but with a sound that's already pretty darn unique! The style here has Gilberto singing upfront and playing acoustic guitar – in a mode that's certainly rooted in ... CD

Ubatuqui (Spain), 1964. Used
Killer early work from Eumir Deodato – all done in an organ-heavy groove that's quite similar to Walter Wanderley's best from the time! Deodato handled all the arrangements, and although his organ and piano are at the front of the mix, the group's nicely large too – with additional ... CD
