Best Of Olodum

CD (Item 666372) Continental (Brazil), 1980s — Condition: Used
$4.99 ...

CD

An excellent collection of work by this legendary Bahian percussion group! The band are legendary – and have probably been one of the biggest Brazilian acts to tour the American circuit over the past few years. The stuff on this set features the band at their best – without any of the less-successful crossover attempts that mar some of their more recent recordings. The sound is incredible – and titles include "Um Povo Comum Pensar", "Protesto Do Olodum", "Madagascar Olodum", "Vinheta Cuba-Brasil", and "Jeito Faceiro".  © 1996-2024, 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 only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

When you purchase a used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use, but if there are significant details or defects we will describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.

Sony (Brazil), 1999. Used
Although this appears to be a greatest hits compilation from the title, most of the tracks on here feel like they are of recent vintage – with that trademark hard heavy percussion sound that Olodum brought to the masses, mixed with modern production styles, jazzy riffing, and a few famous ... CD

Elizeth Cardoso

Cancoes A Meia Luz
Continental/Discobertas (Brazil), 1955. Used
A gem of a record from the pre-bossa years in Brazil – a set that's not just noteworthy for rich vocals from Elizeth Cardoso, but also for some early arrangements by Antonio Carlos Jobim! Jobim scored the whole set – and while the style is quite different than his later bossa material, ... CD
Audio Fidelity (Brazil), 1962. Used
The legendary 1962 Bossa Nova concert at Carnegie Hall – and one of the first live recordings of the young bossa nova in all its glory! The concert is famous not only because it was a bit of a disaster (according to legend, just about nobody got paid!), but also because it brought together a ... CD

Nora Ney & Jorge Goulart

Jubileu De Prata
Som Livre (Brazil), 1976. Used
(1999 remastered edition.) CD
Verve, 1967. Used
A great album from Astrud Gilberto – one that has her pushing past the simple bossa of early years, running through a range of 60s styles that all sound great – really opening up, finding new confidence in her vocals, and bridging a few different musical worlds in the process! ... CD

Jorge Ben

Ben E Samba Bom
Universal (Brazil), 1964. Used
Amazing stuff! Jorge Ben never made a bad record in the 60s – and this is one of his best! The album's filled with tight jaunty numbers that mix big band samba arrangements with quickly strummed guitar, and Jorge's wonderfully raw vocals – all classic stuff for Jorge, but a style that ... CD

Walter Wanderley

Rain Forest
Verve, 1966. Used
An album that not only broke the bossa big in the US – but a set that also really helped transform the sound of the organ in jazz! Not only is the record a key meeting of bossa rhythms and jazz organ – transplanted hugely to the US after a big initial Wanderley run in 60s Brazil – ... CD
Polygram (Brazil), Late 70s. Used
(Out of print and sealed.) CD
Sunnyside, 2003. Used
Lovely work from Brazilian singer Luciana Souza – a set that features both English and Portuguese language tunes, recorded in a laidback, almost torchy kind of jazz vocal style. Pianists on the set include Bruce Barth and Fred Hersch – and the overall setting is small group backing, ... CD

Laurindo Almeida & Bud Shank

Brazilliance Vol 2
World Pacific, 1958. Used
5 years after they made their first set of groundbreaking Braziliany jazz tracks together, Bud Shank and Laurindo Almeida went back into the studio to record another great batch for Pacific Jazz. That second set of sessions is captured here in its entirety, and it features Shank and Almeida ... CD
EMI (Brazil), 2012. Used
Wonderful work from Marisa Monte – and a set that may well be the greatest record we've heard from her in years! There's a freshness here that grabs us right away – with the lure we felt when first hearing Monte's music many years ago, but cast here in a completely different style, too ... CD

Hasaan Ibn Ali (Hasaan)

Metaphysics – The Lost Atlantic Album
Atlantic/Omnivore, 1965. Used
A lost jazz treasure from one of the most enigmatic pianists of the 60s – the legendary Hasaan, who recorded famously with Max Roach on Atlantic Records, but who also left behind this rare session that's never seen the light of day until now! Hasaan hails from Philly, where he was a player ... CD
