A record with "samba" in the title, but a set that hardly sounds like samba at all – given that the record is one of the groundbreaking 70s albums from the legendary Tom Ze! Ze first rose to fame as an experimentalist in the Tropicalia scene – but here, he's years past that movement, yet still one of its most creative proponents – working in a mode that takes older Brazilian rhythms and infuses them with all the new sounds, styles, and sense of poetry that Tom was bringing to his music – often quite playful, but at a level that's quite moving as well. The whole thing's got the subtle "beyond language" power of some of the best by Caetano Veloso – even though Tom Ze is completely his own man throughout. The set features arrangements from Jose Briamonte, production from Heraldo Do Monte, and titles that include a rootsy take on "A Felicidade", plus the nutty instrumental "Toc", and the original tracks "So", "Ma", "Vai", "Ui", "Indice", "Hein", and "Mae".  © 1996-2020, 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.

Banda Black Rio

Rebirth (aka Movimento)
Mr Bongo (UK), 2002. Used
New work from one of the greatest Brazilian soul groups of the 70s – and they're still pretty darn great! The album's smoother and perhaps a bit less funk-oriented than some of Banda Black Rio's classic work – but it's still a perfect blend of Brazilian rhythms and instrumentation with ... CD

Patricia Marx

Patricia Marx
Trama/Ether (UK), 2004. Used
Heavy Brazilian soul from Patricia Marx – her greatest album to date, and a solid stunner that gets us from the very first note! The album was mostly recorded in Brazil, but it's got a fluid funky groove that almost reminds us of our favorite work from the Atlanta scene in recent years ... CD

Azymuth

Partido Novo
Far Out (UK), 2002. Used
Warm, wonderful, and incredibly far-reaching in scope – possibly the most ambitious record cut by Azymuth in recent years – a perfect blend of jazzy fusion, Brazilian rhythms, and some of the London broken beat culture that the group have come into contact with through their label, Far ... CD

Sabrina Malheiros

New Morning (deluxe edition)
Far Out (UK), 2008. Used
A nicely changed-up version of this sweet Brazilian-tinged set! Sabrina Malheiros just keeps on getting better and better – and she really sparkles wonderfully here in a set of fully soulful backings! The album's put together by Daniel Maunick, aka Venom, and son of Bluey from Incognito ... CD

Casa Das Maquinas

Casa Das Maquinas
Som Livre (Brazil), 1974. Used
A lost Brazilian rock set from the mid 70s – one that's nicely perched between the psychedelic sounds of the indie scene and some of the more tightly fused modes of the MPB mainstream! The tunes here are all relatively tightly structured – but they're carried off with a relaxed ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Brazil), 1970. Used
An incredible early album by this legendary Brazilian band with a strong late 60s/early 70s progressive flair! While not as countercultural as Os Mutantes or other Tropicalia artists, Som Imaginario shared with them a sense of pure musical inventiveness, and a love of psychedelic flourishes – ... CD

Bebel Gilberto

Momento
Ziriguiboom/Six Degrees, 2007. Used
Bebel Gilberto's certainly one to keep her public waiting in the space between each new record – but she always makes the wait worthwhile by coming up with something new! The sound here is again something different than her previous two albums – somewhat electric, but also fairly ... CD

Jorge Ben

Sacundin Ben Samba
Universal (Brazil), 1964. Used
One of Jorge Ben's greatest albums – a groundbreaking blend of samba and soul that forever went onto transform the face of Brazilian music! The record works off the groove set down by Jorge's earlier hit "Mas Que Nada" (which appears on another LP), and takes the blend of bossa, ... CD

Democustico

Democustico
Far Out (UK), 2006. Used
An amazing full length debut from Democustico – one of the best new Brazilian albums we've heard in years, and a set that easily matches the best work by classic artists on the Far Out label! The pair mix older and modern modes of expression – using lots of post-bossa jazz in their ... CD

Wilson Simonal

Simonal
EMI/Odeon (Brazil), 1970. Used
A great set of soulful Brazilian tunes from Wilson Simonal – one of his first records of the 70s, handled with a very groovy groove! The album takes off from the style of Simonal's classic Alegria Alegria sets for Odeon in the late 60s – pushing the groove a bit more with interesting ... CD

Luiz Gonzaga Jr (Gonzaguinha)

Luiz Gonzaga Jr (1973)
Odeon/EMI (Brazil), 1973. Used
Sublime early work by Luiz Gonzaga Jr – a wonderful blend of his rootsy vocals with some of the more complicated arranging styles that were creeping into Brazilian music at the time! The album features Luiz's landmark groover "Moleque" – a lightly dancing tune with a great ... CD
