Work Of Love

LP (Item 60906) Nucleus, 1967 — Condition: Sealed
A light and dreamy set of Brazilian vocal tracks – recorded in 1967, and featuring the voice of singer Lenita Bruno, a strong 60s talent with a style that's somewhat like Sylvia Telles. Arrangements on the set are by Clare Fischer – who plays piano, organ, and electric harpsichord in a small combo that also includes guitar by Laurindo Almeida, flute by Bud Shank, and percussion by Paulinho. Some tracks augment the ensemble with a string quartet – who give the material an appropriately sad tone, perfect for Lenita's blue-styled vocals. Includes a nicely grooving version of "Chove Chuva", plus the tracks "Wave", "Winter Moon", "Sing Sing More", "Dindi", "Stay My Love", and "Someone To Light Up My Life".  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Walter Wanderley

Cheganca
Verve, 1966. Very Good Gatefold
Bossa nova meets organ jazz – a real classic from the great Walter Wanderley, recorded right on the heels of his famous Rain Forest album for Verve! This set's in a very similar format to that one – core trio grooving with organ, bass, and drums – sometimes augmented with added ... LP, Vinyl record album

Elis Regina

Falso Brilhante
Philips (Brazil), 1976. Very Good Gatefold
One of the most diverse albums that Elis Regina cut during the 70s – a set that seems to leap from style to style with each new track, and really build from some of the more staid and jazz-based styles of her other records! Cesar Camargo Mariano is still in charge of arrangements here, but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Milton Nascimento

Milton Nascimento Ao Vivo
Barclay/Nascimento (Brazil), 1983. Very Good Gatefold
A live album from Milton Nascimento, but a set that's got all the majesty of his studio work of the 70s – thanks to a core group that's really wonderful, and some larger orchestrations that must have taken up a fair bit of space on the stage! Nascimento's got that wonderfully expressive ... LP, Vinyl record album

Milton Nascimento

Encontros E Despedidas
Barclay (Brazil), 1985. Very Good
A nicely understated 80s set from Milton Nascimento – a record that still has that heavenly, soaring sensibility in his vocals – but which maybe also has some of the intimacy you might expect from the cover's image of Milton walking alone in a forest! There's some jazzy currents in the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Far Out (UK), 1976. Near Mint-
A never-issued album by the great Hermeto Pascoal – recorded in the space between his 70s classics Slaves Mass and A Musica Livre – and every bit as amazing as those classics! The music here is fluid, open, and a fantastic mix of jazz and all of Hermeto's new ideas about musical ... LP, Vinyl record album

Elis Regina

Elis (1972)
Philips (Brazil), 1972. Very Good Gatefold
A stunning step forward for the great Elis Regina – and a landmark record that would set the stage for most of her final work to come in the 70s! The album's got less of the jazz or bossa inflections of her music from the 60s – and instead moves into this richly sophisticated style ... LP, Vinyl record album
EMI (Brazil), 1980. Very Good+
A pretty sweet album by Elis Regina – and one of the last she ever did! The arrangements have a bit more of an electric jazz sound than usual – but they actually give her voice a nice sound, and create some nice lush soulful tracks that have a very sweet sound. Cesar Mariano is still ... LP, Vinyl record album

Walter Wanderley

Return Of The Original
Canyon, Early 70s. Near Mint-
A strange lost "comeback" album for Walter Wanderley – but a great one! The set was recorded recorded in the US in the early 70's, and with the same sweet electric sound that Wanderley was using on his last A&M/CTI albums! Walter plays organ and electric piano, and the group ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philips (Brazil), 1977. Near Mint-
The second volume in this nice tribute series to great Brazilian composers, cut by the swingin' MPB4 vocal group, in their unique harmony style. This volume features the MPB4 paying homage to Ary Barroso, Ivan Lins, Mauricio Tapajos, Pxinguinha, and Haroldo Lobo, among others – and the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mark Murphy

Bridging A Gap
Muse, 1972. Near Mint-
Really great 70s work from the great Mark Murphy – one of those sessions for Muse Records where he really pushed his style forward in comparison to older European and American recordings! The set's got some hip arrangements from David Matthews, organ from Pat Rebillot, guitar from Sam Brown, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Wing/Mercury, 1956. Very Good
Somebody up there digs Louis Jordan – and we do too – thanks to the searing sound of these Mercury Records sides from the 50s! The approach here is a bit more rocking and R&B-influenced than Jordan's initial material – and Louis goes back to some classics, reworks their ... LP, Vinyl record album
