LP, Vinyl record album

❔

Beautiful stuff – and a record we never tire of hearing! This album's a sublime extension of the earlier Brazilian style of the Tamba Trio – in a set that has them adding a fourth member, and picking up some cool new sounds from producer Creed Taylor! The set brings the group's earlier blend of bossa jazz and vocal harmonies into play with Taylor's spacious sensibilities in the early days of CTI – that stretch when the label was partnered with A&M Records, in a mode that also echoes some of the best studio qualities of that imprint too! The songs are longer than usual – nicely stretched out in a beautiful blend of jazz, bossa, and voice – and tracks include a classic reading of Luiz Eca's "The Dolphin", a great take on "Canto De Ossahana", and the tracks "Flower Girl", "We & The Sea", and "Lemanja".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

A real classic from Sergio Mendes – probably most famous for its funky bits!

Brasil
Soul Jazz (UK), 1994. Near Mint-
A really groundbreaking album of Brazilian sounds – a set recorded in the mid 90s by a London label – but one with a vibe that stretches back to the most important classics of the Brazilian scene in the 60s and 70s!

Smog/Mr Bongo (UK), 1972. Near Mint-
Freaky funky sounds from The Gentlemen – a Brazilian combo from the early 70s, and one who work in a really dark mix of modes!

A totally sweeeeeeeet batch of Brazilian grooves – recorded in San Francisco, with a great 70s Bay Area sound!

A Barca Dos Amantes
Barclay (Brazil), 1986. Near Mint-
One of Nascimento's strongest from the time – thanks largely to some guest work by Wayne Shorter, who's returning the favor, after Nascimento appeared on some of his best albums of the mid 70s. The sound is a driving update of Milton's sound of the late 70s – and titles include "La ... LP, Vinyl record album
