Urban Brazil

CD (Item 792861) Sterns/Earthworks, 2003 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock



A selection of contemporary grooves from Brazil – heavy-grooving numbers with a sound that's a lot more urban than classic bossa and samba, yet which also do a strong job of mixing in some traditional elements that still strongly have a South American flavor! A number of the artists on the set are part of the groundbreaking cadre of artists on the Trama label, and others are from more disparate sources, but paired up nicely for a really unified groove! Titles include "Coco Nutz Mass" by Botecoletro, "Cuba" by Otto, "Roda Rodete Rodiano (Zambo mix)" by Chico Science & Bio, "Catimbo (rmix)" by Dj Dolores, "Funquiada" by Drumagick, "Bebete Vaobora" by Wilson Simoninha, "Nervosa" by Funk Como Le Gusta, "2736 km" by Mamelo Sound System, and "Piraquara" by Joao Parahyba.  © 1996-2021, 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.

Elis & Tom
Philips, 1974. Used
An incredible album – and a landmark session that showed that the bossa nova was still alive and well in the 1970s! The album pairs the breathy jazz vocals of Elis Regina with the booze-soaked warmth of Antonio Carlos Jobim – in a set of spare arrangements that feature a lot of touches ... CD

Olha Quem Chega
Odeon/EMI (Japan), 1971. Used
Fantastic early work from Tania Maria! This record is one of her first – and it's a beautiful batch of bossa and jazzy tracks, with larger orchestrations by Geraldo Vespar, and lots of nice organ and keyboard work. Maria's voice is very nice, and without the polish of later recordings ... CD
Rockit! (Brazil), 2001. Used
An incredible album from Moreno Veloso – the son of the famous Caetano, but an artist who's already very much his own man on this classic collaboration with the team of Kassin and Domenico! Moreno plays it cool on most of the record – singing in a spare setting that mixes acoustic ... CD

Bebel's second album for Six Degrees – and quite possibly an even better album than the first! Not one to rest on the laurels of her success of recent years, Bebel seems to diverge a bit from the sound of her initial hit – going for a deeper approach to songwriting, and a musical style ... CD
