(€- || £- || ¥-) (approx.)

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 – which blend flute, strings, vocals, and lots of deft percussion – but always in this lean way that moves along effortlessly with her beautiful vocals. The approach has all the fresh appeal of Joyce at her best – although Clarice is quite different overall, and often open to a much wider range of influences. Titles include "De Perna Pro Ar", "Passaros", "Fantasia", "Tempestade", "Why", "Lachrimae", "Dedezinha De Maio", and "Revolta Das Flores". (Barcode has a cutout hole.)  © 1996-2017, 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. 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.

Adventure Music, 2007. Used
A lovely collection of songs penned by Moacir Santos – sung by the equally lovely Muiza Adnet, who really manages to unlock the best spirit of the tunes! Of course, it helps that Muiza's working here under the guidance of brother Mario Adnet, who helped produce Santos' late-career classic ... CD
Samba Meets Boogie Woogie
Adventure Music, 2008. Used
Kind of a silly name, but a really great group – and one without any of the hoke you might expect! The sound is definitely what's promised, a meeting of samba rhythms and older American jazz – but there's a breezy sort of warmth to the record that's light years from standard boogie ... CD
Afro Samba Jazz – The Music Of Baden Powell
Adventure Music, 2009. Used
A wonderful tribute to the music of Baden Powell – way different than the simple solo acoustic set that you might normally get – and instead, a cool batch of larger arrangements that showcase a totally different side of Powell's tunes! The album's a great reminder that amidst some of ... CD
Portraits
Adventure Music, 2010. Used
Lovely work from guitarist Marcos Amorim – light, lyrical, and filled with gentle dips and turns – a really great blend of Brazilian and American acoustic sensibilities! The music's not exactly jazz, yet has plenty of jazzy inflections – and the overall sound is warm and laidback ... CD
Adventure Music, 2006. Used
Beautiful work from trombonist Vittor Santos – a set that glides along with the jazzy gentleness of some of the best bossa jazz sides of the 60s! The bossa-inspired use of the instrument is often far different than that of American jazz – and Santos here draws on a strong legacy from ... CD
Outro Rio – Another River
Adventure Music, 2007. Used
A great mix of contemporary acoustic and Brazilian jazz modes – heard here on an album recorded in Rio, but with a fair bit of American guitar influences as well! The production is great, and really gets at the rich sound of Ricardo Silveira's guitar – and backing ranges from acoustic ... CD
Adventure Music, 2004. Used
A beautiful take on the compositions of Milton Nasicmento – performed by guitarist Ricardo Silveira and pianist Luiz Avellar. Given the majesty and ambitious production styles often used with Nascimento's own recordings of his tunes, this stripped-down set is a very different take on the ... CD
Mike Marshall & Choro Famoso
Adventure Music, 2004. Used
Lightly dancing instrumentals – done in the classic choro style of Brazil, and featuring some great work on mandolin by Mike Marshall! Marshall leads a group that includes clarinet, soprano sax, guitar, and percussion – and the tunes have a warm feel all the way through, bouncing ... CD
Serenata – The Music Of Hermeto Pascoal
Adventure Music, 2003. Used
One of the most beautiful interpretations of the work of Hermeto Pascoal we've ever heard – a record that manages to get at the brilliance of his compositions, yet present them in a completely different context than you might expect from Hermeto's own work. The album's mostly a duet effort ... CD
Hamilton De Holanda & Yamandu Costa Live
Adventure Music, 2011. Used
Twin-string magic from Hamilton De Holanda and Yamandu Costa – a live set, but one with a very intimate feel! Instrumentation comes only from Hamilton's 10 string mandolin and Yamandu's 7 string guitar – both unusual instruments that find a wonderful space with each other – ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 1976. Used
The second album by Made In Brasil – a great San Francisco combo from the 70s, with a flair for jazzy Brazilian tunes that's every bit as great as groups from Rio or Sao Paulo at the time! The group at this point features keyboardist Claudio Medeiros – who really adds a lot to their ... CD
Numero Um (Japanese pressing)
P-Vine (Japan), 1975. Used
A totally sweeeeeeeet batch of Brazilian grooves – recorded in San Francisco, with a great 70s Bay Area sound! Victor M leads the group on percussion and vocals – but the real charm of the set is in its electric piano riffing, and soulful electric vibe. Most of the cuts have vocals ... CD
