CD

(€4.38 || £3.75 || ¥497) (approx.)

A beautiful set of symphonic tracks based around the work of Antonio Carlos Jobim – work that stretches back to the 50s, up through 60s bossa nova, and even includes some of Jobim's more complicated orchestrations from the 70s! The music is done in the arch-baroque style of other titles on the Biscoito Fino label – with a full symphony orchestra, smaller instrumental groupings, and even some strong vocal performances that drift in and out of the music. The set features re-interpretations of original arrangements by Jobim, Nelson Riddle, Deodato, Claus Ogerman, and others – and was put together by Paulo Jobim. Titles include "Lenda", "Macumba", "O Homem", "Saudade Do Brasil", "Matita Pere", "Chora Coracao", "Bangzalia", "Garota De Ipanema", and "Gabriela". Very nicely done 2CD set!  © 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.

Very cool stuff! This is a nifty little promo-only CD of remixes of tracks from the last Tom Ze album for Luaka Bop. The sound is amazing, and the CD includes remixes by The High Llamas, Sean Lennon (?), Amon Tobin, Sasha Frere-Jones (of Ui), and John McEntire (of Tortoise, who are Ze's backing ... CD

Garota De Ipanema
Philips (Brazil), 1989. Used
Nice album recorded in 1989 under the supervision of bossa master Roberto Menescal. Menescal did all the arrangements, and he plays guitar behind Nara's lovely vocals. The record was recorded in Japan, with excellent fidelity, and a spare instrumentation in the classic bossa style. Nara reprises ... CD

Hannibal, 2001. Used
Moreno's the son of Caetano – and even though this album can't possibly live up to the claim on the label that the album takes up strand's of Caetano's most groundbreaking work, it's still a pretty great little record! Moreno plays it cool on most of the record – singing in a spare ... CD
