Herb Alpert Presents Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66

LP (Item 9552) A&M, 1966 — Condition: Very Good-

The start of a legend – and the very first album by Sergio Mendes' Brasil 66 group, proudly brought to the world through the godlike talents of a young Herb Alpert! Sergio was no stranger to the recording studio by the time of this set, but the record marked a real shift in his music – a change from the mostly-instrumental bossa modes he first forged back in Brazil, and a shift to warmer, sweeter pop with a nice sunny California finish – done through unique production techniques and the group's trademark two-lady lead vocals! The sound is tremendous, and is possibly heard in its purest form here – simple, focused, and given that near-perfect A&M sound through Herb's production skills. Titles include the classics "Daytripper", "Aqua De Beber", "O Pato", "Berimbau", "Mas Que Nada", and "The Joker".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Antonio Carlos Jobim

Tide
A&M, 1970. Sealed
An incredible record – from the first off-key note to the last! The album's filled with some wonderfully moody LA studio sounds, arranged by Deodato, and a has a great swirling mix of sound that weaves around Jobim's lofty guitar and piano beautifully – complex, but still with the airy ...

Zimbo Trio

FM Stereo
Philips (Brazil), 1974. Very Good+
A pretty darn groovy album of tracks – issued here with a title that says "FM Stereo Programacao Especial", which we think means that it was a promo-only album for radio. The cuts are very nice breezy bossa-inflected instrumental tracks on the record, with kind of a nice 70's FM ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philips (Brazil), 1966. Very Good-
A mid-60s collection of some of the big songs that were rocking the Brazilian festivals of the time – early work by Gilberto Gil, Elis Regina, Claudette Soares, Geraldo Vandre, Jair Rodrigues, Nara Leao, and others! LP, Vinyl record album
Fantasia (Brazil), Early 60s. Very Good-
A very obscure entry in the Brazilian 60s mode of mixing organ jazz with percussion –recorded by the equally obscure Steve Bernard, who we're guessing might be another player working under a session name! LP, Vinyl record album
Dot, Mid 60s. Very Good+
Dreamy instrumentals from one of the hipper arrangers working in 60s Brazil – tracks that include "O Barquino", "Fita Amarela", "A Coraco Do Rei", "Supersonic Samba", "Mulata Assanhada", "Bahia Com H", and "Saudades Da ... LP, Vinyl record album

Baden Powell

27 Horas De Estudio
Elenco (Brazil), 1969. Very Good+
Very spare stuff by Baden, recorded in a warm intimate setting, with just guitar and voice carrying the entire record. The tracks are more sophisticated than his bossa work – and the guitar playing is extremely emotional and a testament to Powell's virtuosity. Tracks include "Um Abraco ... LP, Vinyl record album

Brasil Dia E Noite
Odeon (Brazil), Early 60s. Good+
A classic set of orchestral arrangements from one of Brazil's greatest leaders ever – the mighty Luiz Arruda Paes, the man who provided musical backings for more albums than we can count! This album's a set of instrumental tunes by Luiz – big band takes on Brazilian standards and samba ... LP, Vinyl record album

Elis Regina

Elis Regina in London
Philips (Brazil), 1969. Very Good
Elis Regina hits the London scene of the late 60s – with amazing results that make the album one of her best from the early years! The style here is still quite bossa-oriented, but backings are done by Peter Knight – who'd worked with Scott Walker and some of the other hip British ... LP, Vinyl record album
