Jet Samba

CD (Item 670953) Universal/Planet Rhythm, 2005 — Condition: Used
$16.99 ...

CD

An all-instrumental set from the legendary Marcos Valle – beautifully jazzy, and filled with plenty of great work on Fender Rhodes! There's a style here that brings us back to the arrangements that Marcos used heavily on his Odeon work of the late 60s and early 70s (including his work with Joao Donato) – a mode that took inspiration from bossa, borrowed a bit more from American and European styles, and created a sound that was complicated, sophisticated, yet never failed to groove! The overall approach is a bit more modern here than on those albums, but there's a sense of gentle warmth and playfulness that we totally love – as Valle works with an octet that includes trombone, saxes, trumpet, and plenty of percussion – all warmly arranged with a surprising degree of soul. Valle's nicely departing from some of his recent albums for Far Out – offering us a whole new side of his talents, and one that could easily play well for fans of American electric jazz as well. Titles include "Jet Samba", "Bar Ingles", "Selva De Pedra", "Adams Hotel", "Vem", "Catedral", "Posto 9", "Previsao Do Tempo", and "Campina Grande".  © 1996-2022, 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 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.

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 list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

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.

A lost bossa classic from Wanda De Sah – aka Wanda Sa, the wife of Edu Lobo, and a singer who worked with Sergio Mendes in his pre-Brasil 66 days! The album's got a wonderfully laidback feel – languid, yet jazzy, with the feel of some of Astrud Gilberto's best work on Verve, yet with ... CD
