CD


The Winds of Brazil is a pretty heady little group – one that features work by Brazilian reed players Teco Cardoso, Vinicius Dorin, Lea Freire, Mauro Rodrigues, and Paulo Moura – all working here in a slightly-orchestral performance of Brazilian classics and original numbers! There's a fluid feel here that keeps the proceedings from being too stiff or too academic – and songs are presented in fresh arrangements exclusive to the group, penned by Mauricio Einhorn, Paulo Moura, Benjamin Taubkin, Vittor Santos, and others – in ways that unite earthier and more sophisticated Brazilian musical traditions. Titles include "Firm & Smooth", "The March Of The Sounds", "Morning Of Carnaval", "Kenoma", "Sunset Star", "Affectionate", and "Steel In The Piston".

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.

Adventure Music, 2016. Used
Beautifully subtle guitar work from Marcos Amorim – a musician who plays an electric instrument, but can often make it feel as if waves of sound are just cascading out gently into the air – more tone than attack on the strings, with this style that's deft, but very unassuming – ... CD
Duets
Adventure Music, 2005. Used
The guitar of Toninho Horta is always a treat, but on this album it's made even better by some lyrically light flute work from Nicola Stilo! The set's got a dreamy quality that really gets at the gentler sound of Horta's work on guitar – and a few tunes even feature his vocals, singing in a ... CD
Adventure Music, 2012. Used
A striking solo set from Phillipe Baden Powell – much bolder and more expressive than his previous album – even though the overall feel is a lot more stripped-down too! Baden's got a very sharp approach to the keys of the piano – working here in a range of tones that's really ... CD
Vida
Philips (Brazil), 1980. Used
An album with as much depth and richness as the title might imply – a wonderful record from Chico Buarque's newly sophisticated years at the end of the 70s! The set's got a quality that's almost timeless – an interwoven blend of styles that features some of Chico's modes from earlier ... CD
Piano Masters Series Vol 4
Adventure Music, 2013. Used
Beautiful solo piano from Jovino Santos Neto – an artist we've loved on other releases from Adventure music, but one who really shines here in the spare space of their Piano Masters series! The isolation of Neto's instrument allows for even greater fascination with his subtle tones and ... CD

Imaginarium
Adventure Music, 2014. Used
Sublime vocals from Clarice Assad – a singer who's got some ties to older Brazilian traditions, but who also really makes things all her own – with a dynamic sense of phrasing that's perfectly backed up by some equally great instrumentation! Clarice handled all the arrangments – ... CD

Adventure Music, 2014. Used
A beautiful set that delivers exactly what it promises in the title – a wonderful criss-crossing of Brazilian and Moroccan modes – all with a vibe that's quite different than previous records from pianist Benjamim Taubkin! Many tracks are long, and flow with a wonderful blend – ... CD
Caprichos/Caprices
Adventure Music, 2014. Used 2 CDs
One of the most beautiful albums we've ever heard from Hamilton De Holanda – a double-length set that's filled with really lovely solo work on the ten-string mandolin, mixed with other duo and trio performances featuring a well-chosen array of guests! The album's got a very close, personal ... CD
Hannibal, 2001. Used
An incredible album from Moreno Veloso – the son of the famous Caetano, but an artist who's already very much his own man on this classic collaboration with the team of Kassin and Domenico! Moreno plays it cool on most of the record – singing in a spare setting that mixes acoustic ... CD
Stone Flower
CTI, 1970. Used
One of Antonio Carlos Jobim's greatest records – and a perfect blend of his subtle bossa genius with the moody electric sound of CTI! Jobim plays electric and acoustic piano, guitar, and sings a bit – and Deodato handled the arrangements with a breezy brilliance that matches all the ... CD
