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".  © 1996-2021, 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.

The first-ever album from the legendary Tamba Trio – and the start of an amazing 60s run that really set them apart from other bossa combos of the time!

Warner, 1977. Near Mint-
Quite different from Flora's earlier work, but in a way that we find quite compelling! The record was produced by Leon Ndugu Chancler, and it's got a smooth fusion sound that's kind of in a southern California R&B mode, played by a huge range of excellent Brazilian and west coast talents that ...

Abril Cultural (Brazil), 1970s. Near Mint- Gatefold
Great work from two of Brazil's greatest modernists! Although the cover makes it look like they're playing together on the album, the record features a side apiece of work by each composer/musician.

Jose Roberto Bertrami

Dreams Are Real
Milestone, 1984. Very Good+
Soaring keyboard work from Jose Roberto Bertrami of Azymuth – done with a sound that's slightly smooth – keyboards that show a bit more of a mid 80s sound, but still recorded with the sense of soul and space that makes Bertrami so great! There's a gently flowing quality to most of ... LP, Vinyl record album

One of the few rare albums from Jean DuShon – a very cool 60s jazz singer, working here with hip small combo backings from the Herman Foster Trio!

A wonderful chapter in the career of Ray Charles – and a key album in helping raise his respect level a notch or two in the early 60s!
