Bossa Session

CD (Item 914705) Elenco/Mercury (Brazil), 1964 — Condition: Used
$19.99 ...


A classic early bossa session on the Elenco label! Sylvia Telles and Lucio Alves sing, both solo and in duets, while Roberto Menescal backs them up with his tight little combo – and even plays vibes on a few instrumentals! The whole thing's got a great fragile bossa feel, with lots of nice groovy tracks, and a warm lyrical sound. Tracks include "Baiaozinho", "Telephone", "Primavera", "Esse Seu Olhar", "Ainda Mais Lindo", "Vivo Sonhando", and "Amanhecendo". The package is very sharp looking, with the typical angular geometric style of the other Elenco covers!  © 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.

E Lala Lay-e
Deck Disk (Brazil), 2001. Used
2001 may well be known as the year of Joao Donato – because he's released so many great albums during the year! This set is more modern than some of Joao's "bossa revival" sets – in a smooth electric-tinged mode, warm and jazzy, with a bunch of new songs, and not just redone ... CD

A wonderful live date from the team of Flora Purim and Airto Moreira – recorded at a time when Flora was working more in an R&B style on records, but done in a soaring, jazzy vibe that's like the duo's best work from earlier in the 70s! Tracks are long, and this beautiful blend of ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1975. Used
A sweet electric 70s session from the mighty Joao Donato – very different than his earlier bossa work of the 60s – and with the same funky appeal as the best work on his classic Quem E Quem album! This set's got a tighter feel overall – very much in a samba soul style, with lots ... CD

A lively little trio set from the master of Bossa Nova piano! Joao recorded this recent set with his trio that includes Luiz Alves on bass and Claudio Slon on drums – and the feel of the session is stripped-down and acoustic, with a strong focus on Donato's talent for soloing, and for ... CD
