Brasil

LP (Item 9073) Warner, 1981 — Condition: Near Mint-
Also available
Joao Gilberto/Caetano Veloso/Gilberto Gil/Maria B — Brasil ... CD 13.99
Joao Gilberto/Caetano Veloso/Gilberto Gil/Maria Bethania — Brasil (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD 34.99

The best of Brazil, old and new – as Joao Gilberto meets up with a younger generation of Brazilian vocalists – Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, and Maria Bethania – all for a wonderful session of stripped-down bossa! The work is very much in Joao's best style of the early 70s – a back to basics return, handled with even more intimacy than before – with production by Gilberto, and some beautifully understated arrangements from Johnny Mandel! Tracks are all nice and long, and allow for lots of vocal interplay between the four singers on the set. Titles include "Cordeiro De Nana", "Aquarela Do Brasil", "Milagre", and "Bahia Com H".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear and aging.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

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.

Flora Purim

Every Day Every Night
Warner, 1978. Near Mint- Gatefold
A beautifully soulful record from Flora Purim – still awash with touches from her Brazilian roots, but also done with a great 70s LA sound! Airto's helping Flora out on production, but the real hero here is Michel Colombier – who handles most of the arrangements and wrote a good deal ... LP, Vinyl record album

Antonio Carlos Jobim

Love, Strings, & Jobim
Warner, 1966. Very Good+
All the elements that make the music of Antonio Carlos Jobim so wonderful – summed up perfectly in the title of this American session from the 60s! The sounds are full of the gentle love that Jobim always brought to his writing and performance – a sense of space and style that really ... LP, Vinyl record album

Antonio Carlos Jobim

Terra Brasilis
Warner, 1980. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Pretty great sounds from the legendary Antonio Carlos Jobim – an album cut a bit later than his bossa years, but with a darkly sophisticated sound that's pretty darn compelling! The album features larger orchestrations by Claus Ogerman, and in a way, it's similar to the Jobim album on Decca ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner, 1977. Near Mint-
A lot smoother than most of Airto's other work – and almost more of a soul record than a jazz one – but also a great batch of grooves with a really spirited feel! Airto's percussion is still relatively up front in the mix, and smooth funky LA arrangements take the album to a warm ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner, 1965. Very Good+
The wonderful world of Antonio Carlos Jobim gets a whole lot bigger on this American release from the 60s – thanks to a collaboration with the great Nelson Riddle, the arranger whose work made so many of Frank Sinatra's albums so great! Riddle really understands the jazzy elements at the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Vinicius De Moraes & Toquinho

Vinicius/Toquinho
Philips (Brazil), 1975. Very Good Gatefold
One of the more lively, and more beautiful Vinicius albums from the 70s! Unlike a lot of others, which have spare production – this one has some wonderful arrangements, in a manner that's similar to some of Jobim's from the same time, but with occasional touches of samba. The production is ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chico Buarque

Almanaque
Ariola (Brazil), 1982. Very Good+
The kind of record that kept Chico Buarque going strong well into his later years – a beautifully-penned, beautifully-sung album filled with subtle graces and charms! The style here is vaguely samba-oriented, but as with most of Chico's other work, it's delivered in a mode that defies simple ... LP, Vinyl record album

Caetano Veloso, Os Mutantes, Joyce, et al

III Festival Internacional Da Cancao Popular Rio Vol 2
Philips (Brazil), 1968. Very Good-
A groundbreaking moment in Brazilian pop culture! The 3rd International Festival of Song in Rio was fraught with controversy – Brazilian music was at a crossroads, and the new experiments of some of the younger groups didn't really sit well with the more conservative audiences in the country ... LP, Vinyl record album
Polydor (Brazil), 1970. Fair
Tracks recorded at the 5th International Song Festival in Rio – featuring, in this case, the "international part", which includes songs from a variety of global sources. The overall style of the music, though, is in the best late 60s Brazil baroque pop mode, and the strongest ... LP, Vinyl record album

Simone (1988)

Odeon (Argentina), 1961. Fair
Proof that the harmony mode of the 60s wasn't just restricted to the bossa recordings in Brazil – because Trio Irakitan do a pretty great job here in a samba-based mode! Arrangements are lively and spacious, but still leave plenty of room for the warm vocals of the trio – singing here ... LP, Vinyl record album
