Brazilian Beat Vol 2

LP (Item 9090) London (Brazil), 1967 — Condition: Very Good

Brilliant 60s work from Meirelles – ostensibly an album of pop batucada tracks, but a record that also features some great jazzy groovers lurking in the mix of tracks! The stunner here is Meirelles' great take on "Mas Que Nada" – zooming around in mod 60s instrumental splendor – but all tracks are pretty nice too, and titles include "Marchinha", "Cidade Maravilhosa", "Garota De Ipanema", and "Ritmo".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Rita Lee & Roberto De Carvalho

Rita Lee (1982)
Som Livre (Brazil), 1982. Very Good+
One of the earlier collaborations between Rita Lee & Roberto De Carvalho – one that shows Rita moving off her rock n roll style of the 70s, into territory that's smoother, slicker, and a bit more mainstream. Titles include "So De Voce", "O Circo", "Pirata ... LP, Vinyl record album

Juarez & His Orchestra

Bossa Nova Brasil
ABC, 1962. Very Good+
A gem of a record from the early 60s – a freewheeling set of bossa jazz, played by the combo of tenor saxophonist Juarez! There's a fluid, open groove to the record that's mighty nice – really romping rhythms that set fire to the tenor of Juarez right from the start – as he moves ... LP, Vinyl record album

Walter Wanderley

Rain Forest
Verve, 1966. Near Mint-
An album that not only broke the bossa big in the US – but a set that also really helped transform the sound of the organ in jazz! Not only is the record a key meeting of bossa rhythms and jazz organ – transplanted hugely to the US after a big initial Wanderley run in 60s Brazil – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Pacific Jazz, Mid 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold
Stunning work by one of the greatest bossa combos of the 60s – and one of their few albums in the US! The tracks were originally recorded in Brazil for RGE, and have that crackling solid bossa style that rarely showed up so well in American studio sides of the time. The album features the ...

Sergio Mendes

Pele
Atlantic, 1977. Near Mint-
Sergio Mendes' score to this film starring Pele from the height of his career. The music's got the range of sounds that you'd expect from a soundtrack – with some mellow cuts, and some more uptempo ones, but the mix is great, and the sound is nice and Braziliany, with some good electric ...

Roberto Nascimento

Roberto Nascimento
Tapecar (Brazil), 1975. Near Mint-
A wonderful little album – sweet jazzy MPB from Roberto Nascimento, a lost record that we're very happy got reissued! We'll be honest and say that we didn't know anything about this one in the past – but we really enjoy the record for its warm grooves and gently soulful vocals. The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ed Lincoln

Ed Lincoln
Musidisc, Mid 60s. Very Good
Next to Walter Wanderley, Ed Lincoln was probably the other great Brazilian organ player. We think he's better than Walt, and a lot more creative. Why? Well, check out the cool jazzy groovers on here like "O Ganso", "Balanco Azul", and the fantastic cut "Cochise", a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wilson Simonal

Wilson Simonal (3LP set)
Odeon (Mexico), Late 60s/Early 70s. Very Good+ 3LPs
A very cool 3LP set – filled with some of the best early tracks by Wilson Simonal – those jaunty, jazzy, samba funky tunes we love so much! Titles include "Zazueira", "Pails Tropical", "Meia Volta", "Voce Abusou", "Telefone", and lots ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66

Ye-Me-Le
A&M, 1969. Near Mint-
Way past the hits, and into some really great territory – a move that makes the record one of our favorite Sergio Mendes sets for A&M! The sweeter bossa pop style here is undercut with a bit more influence from late 60s Brazilian grooves – some of the more baroque turns that Sergio' ... LP, Vinyl record album

Paulinho Da Costa

Agora
Pablo, 1977. Very Good Gatefold
A tasty session of west coast Brazilian grooves – cut by the great percussionist Paulinho Da Costa, with a group that includes Claudio Slon, Larry Williams, and Lee Ritenour. The record's got a very nice breezy feel – with a sound that's similar to some of the Fantasy Brazilian LPs of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic, 1969. Near Mint- Gatefold
An album so heavy, it blew plenty of minds when first released at the end of the 60s! This set's the first-ever utterance from the King Crimson empire – the initial outing of the group, which featured Greg Lake on vocals, and lots of airy, darkly atmospheric guitar from the legendary Robert ...
