Chico Buarque — Chico (Brazilian pressing) ... CD 9.99

Damn – a heck of a treat! Chico Buarque's one of those artists we never take for granted – and although we've been loving his music for decades, we've also been surprised for that long at how consistently great it is – especially during his maturing years, when he really seems to have hit a whole new level of genius! A set like this is a perfect illustration of that fact – simple numbers with a mostly acoustic instrumental approach – yet put together with a subtle sort of complexity that really sets them apart! The tunes are timeless at some level, yet completely fresh at another – similar to some of Caetano Veloso's best work in later small combo modes – and as always, Chico's vocals alone are completely sublime – full of more than enough feeling and humanity to cross the boundaries of language. Luiz Claudio Ramos handled the great arrangements for the album – and titles include "Rubato", "Tipo Um Baiao", "Sinha", "Nina", "Sou Eu", "Sem Voce 2", and "Querido Diario".  © 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.

Tremendous work from an artist whose talents never dim over the years – and even then, a set that's quite possibly one of Chico's best in many many years! The record has a depth and complexity that's really wonderful – like the best of Caetano Veloso's more sophisticated work of the ... CD

Chico Ao Vivo
BMG (Brazil), 1999. Used 2CD
Beautiful live material by Chico – and the best record he's made in years! The set has a similar feel to the recent Gal Costa live set on BMG – with 2 discs worth of material, recorded with backing by a great little combo in an intimate live setting. Chico's voice is incredibly warm, ... CD

Chico Buarque

Para Todos
RCA (Brazil), 1993. Used
That's a young mug shot of Chico Buarque on the cover, but the album's a later effort from the 90s – and one that really holds us rapt with the brilliance of Chico's mature songwriting and performance! The record's part of that ever-growing legacy that may well make Buarque one of the ... CD

Philips (Brazil), 1973. Used
What a dream! The work of Chico Buarque is arranged by Edu Lobo – and the sound is fantastic! We've always loved Chico's songwriting from this period – but it's made even better by Edu, who's working here in a sharp jazzy mode, similar to that which he used on his Missa Breve album ... CD

Chico Buarque

Sinal Fechado
Philips (Brazil), 1974. Used
Chico pays tribute to a host of other Brazilian composers – but he manages to make the work entirely his own, thanks to a deeply personal approach! Styles here run the gamut from samba to sophisticated, often handled with slightly jazzy undercurrent – and backings are by Perinho ... CD
BMG, 1990. Used
Live work by Chico Buarque – a surprisingly nice set overall, and a great demonstration of the way the energy of his live albums almost took over force from his studio sets at this point in his career! The double-length performance features some great musical direction from Cristovao Bastos ... CD
DRG, 2006. Used
A slightly traditional set from Brazilian vocalist Gal Costa – but a great one too, and record that demonstrates a new sense of poise and grace in her vocals in recent years! The material here is mostly bossa – work that pre-dates Gal's initial time on record, but which is delivered ... CD
Biscoito Fino/DRG, 2014. Used
One of the most personal albums we've heard in years from Maria Bethania – a set that's got a quietly intimate vibe, one that really lives up to the spirit of the title – a place where Bethania can be herself and share some of her innermost thoughts! The backing is wonderfully intimate ... CD
