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 textures than before – and honestly, the way the notes flow and ebb, we'd almost think that some passages featured more than one player, or overdubs – but are, as described in the notes, just the product of Jovino's open-ended freedom at the keyboard of a top-shelf piano. Tracks are a great mix of originals and surprising standards – and titles include "Bebe", "Amanha", "Descanso", "Na Batucada Da Vida", "Muito", "Nem Um Talvez", "Do Solo", "Choro Bandido", and "All The Things You Are".

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.

Sea Of Tranquility
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, 2002. Used 2 CDs
A beautiful set of symphonic tracks based around the work of Antonio Carlos Jobim – work that stretches back to the 50s, up through 60s bossa nova, and even includes some of Jobim's more complicated orchestrations from the 70s! The music is done in the arch-baroque style of other titles on ... 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
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
Gilberto With Turrentine
CTI/Columbia, 1971. Used
Incredible 70s work from the lovely Astrud Gilberto – a rare effort for the CTI label that has her teaming up with arranger Eumir Deodato and saxophonist Stanley Turrentine – all in a groove that's totally different than most of her earlier work! Astrud's breathy vocals are still ... 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

Os Grandes Sucessos
BMG (Brazil), Late 40s/Early 50s. Used
Reissue of a 1963 album that brings together 40s and 50s recordings by this famous group – vocal harmonies and guitars grooving together in an early samba mode. Tracks include "Perdida", "Chegando Mais", "Na Baixa Do Sapateiro", "Amaralina", "Bolin ... CD
Iris (Brazil), 1990. Used
A haunting live set from Baden – recorded in 1990 at the Rio Jazz Club, and featuring Baden playing solo guitar in the moody style he used often in his later work. Baden's style of playing is much more contemplative than in the bossa years – picking up some of the darkness of the Afro ... CD
