Os Gatos

CD (Item 714565) Philips (Japan), Mid 60s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈
An album of incomparable beauty – one of the two rare albums cut by this legendary group during the 60s, and a bossa nova masterpiece all the way through! The work is guided by a young Deodato – who's moving here into much more complicated territory than his early organ jazz records – a spacious sort of sound that really marks him as one of the most inventive talents of the mid 60s bossa era! The arrangements are light, and spacious – and leave plenty of room for individual voices to float through the mix – including key piano, saxophone, or trombone passages, plus some occasional harmony vocals – which resonate with the force of work by Tamba Trio at times. The whole thing's fantastic – and titles include "Nuvens", "Sambidu", "A Chuva", "O Show E O Meu Rio", "Novo Sol", and "Razao De Viver".  © 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 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.

Philips (Brazil), Mid/Late 60s. Used
Excellent work by Jobim – spanning the mid 60s late bossa years, into the early 70s baroque ones, when his mad compositional genius was really opening up! The set's a great way to get some of these cuts on vinyl – as they're not actually as easy to track down as we'd like. Roberto ... CD
