Hi-Lo's Happen To Bossa Nova

LP (Item 60907) Reprise, Early 60s — Condition: Very Good+

One of the grooviest albums ever made by this great jazz vocal group – and a record that's darn impossible to find on wax! The Hi Lo's here hit the bossa craze of the 60's, and they turn their vocal harmonies to a Brazilian groove, in sort of a roundabout recognition of the way that their style was taken over by Brazilian groups like Tamba Trio or Quarteto Em Cy. The record has lots of cool cheesy vocal tracks with a nice groove – even if the bossa part isn't too authentic – and the track list includes cuts like "O Pato", "Gold Brazilian Sun", "One Note Samba", and "Carnaval".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Tri-color mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has clear tape on all seams.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

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.

Columbia, Late 50s. Very Good
Dreamy harmony jazz from the great Hi-Los – one of the hippest groups of the 50s, with a sweet quartet approach similar to The Four Freshmen, and which had a huge effect on pop in the 60s! The tunes on the set feature the group working with Frank Comstock – in an amazing style that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ella Fitzgerald

Ella
Reprise, 1969. Very Good-
Groovy Ella from the end of the 60s – the kind of record that marked a really nice change from her staid work for Verve in years past! The setting here is bouncy and mod – a great mixture of jazz, soul, and bits of late 60s Brit Easy – no surprise, given that the sessions were ... LP, Vinyl record album

Frank Sinatra

Strangers In The Night
Reprise, 1966. Very Good-
A key turning point for Frank Sinatra in the 60s – a record that got him firmly back on the charts with a great new sound! The leadoff title cut really sets the pace for the whole thing – a slyly syncopated groover that works perfectly with Sinatra's aging vocals – originally ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sammy Davis Jr

Shelter Of Your Arms
Reprise, Early 60s. Very Good+
One of our favorite albums by Sammy Davis Jr ever – a real lost treasure from his early years at Reprise! The record's got a jazzy,s winging style that's really great – and features the tasty hit "Bee Bom", a scatting masterpiece that's one of Sammy's best tunes ever – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Frank Sinatra

Swing Along With Me
Reprise, 1961. Very Good
This was Sinatra's first swing record for Reprise and his third collaboration with Billy May who arranged and conducted this 1961 recording. It features some standards from the likes of Rodgers & Hart ("Have You Met Miss Jones?") and George & Ira Gershwin ("Love Walked ... LP, Vinyl record album

Reprise, 1964. Very Good+
A near-lost album from Sammy's years at Reprise – and an album that's got that nice bouncey style that the label was using with Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra in the 60s! A lot of the thanks goes to producer Sonny Burke, who inflects Sammy's vocals with a punched-up set of rhythms that makes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dean Martin

Country Style
Reprise, 1963. Very Good+
The roots of Dino's country style with arrangements by Don Costa. The style here is different from the hit Jimmy Bowman sound of Dean's stone cold country work of the mid to late 60s for Reprise – with a feel that's a bit more in the country pop vocal mode of 50s singers like Jim Reeves or ...

Sammy Davis Jr

As Long As She Needs Me
Reprise, Early 60s. Near Mint-
Wonderful Sammy from his years at Reprise – and a beautiful album cut in collaboration with arranger Marty Paich! Marty had a swinging, jazzy style that always brought out the best in Sam – even on an album of fuller, mellower tracks such as these. The title hit is done by Sammy in a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nancy Sinatra

Nancy In London
Reprise, 1966. Very Good
Nancy Sinatra recording in London, but still getting some heavy help from Lee Hazlewood – who wrote about half the tracks on the record, and also guest stars on one number too! The backings are fuller than some of Nancy's other Reprise albums – clearly going for some of the jaunty ... LP, Vinyl record album
