A gorgeous bit of bossa jazz from Italy – and a key non-soundtrack album from the great Alessandro Alessandroni! The session's a bit more jazz-based than some of Alessandroni's soundtrack work from the 60s, but in a good way – one that really opens up the tunes, and provides for some spontaneous improvisation that only deepens their spirit and sound. The lovely Edda Dell'Orso sings wordless vocals on a number of tracks – scatting in a cool and groovy way that's almost even better than her famous soundtrack recordings. Some tracks have organ, others have acoustic piano – but the whole thing's grooving very nicely all the way through – with the kind of dreamy dreamy sound we'd rank right up there with the best coming out of Italy at the time! Titles include "Meccanico", "Primavera", "Introverso", "Bossa Italiana", "Beat For Love", "Hammurabi", and "Psichedelico". (Out of print.) © 1996-2018, Dusty Groove, Inc.
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.
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.
