Rhythm Of Life

CD (Item 982475) Irma (Italy), 2009 — Condition: Used
$6.99 ...

CD

Breezy bossa jazz steeped grooves from Italy's Papik – jazzy and effervescent, with a more of a live feel than so many on the international bossa based melodic tip – with loops and studio flourishes subtly blended with with a really sweet sound throughout! The female lead vocal parts are lovely as can be, and the whole thing has warmth and depth, in mood, instrumentation and arrangement. Titles include "Rhythm Of Life", "E La Chiamano Estate", "Mon Coeur", "Her Name Is", "Staying For Good", "Lady Bug Bossa", a groovy cover of Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy", "Capture The Sound", "Summer In Rio", "I Believe In The Sun" and "Notes Of The Past".  © 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.

Deep Inside
Irma (Italy), 1996. Used
Soul singer Michael Allen is backed up by a smooth Italian group in this nice modern soul session from a few years ago. The tracks are nice and mellow, and Gazzara's on electric keyboards and gives the LP a nice jazzy feel. Nearly all the cuts are originals by Allen, and the set includes "Bre ... CD

Irma (Italy), 1999. Used
Very groovy batch of funky keyboard tracks, with a sound that hearkens back to early work by the James Taylor Quartet, and to some of the better Italian grooves from the early 90s!

Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 2009. Used
The great first full length chapter of an ultra-hip ensemble – a contemporary group, but one with a great ear for the spiritual sounds of the 70s! The group's a bit like Build An Ark – no surprise, as they've shared a similar label, Kindred Spirits – and like that collective, ... CD

Bicho Do Mato
Unique (Germany), 2001. Used
A wonderful bit of Brazilian soul – featuring vocals by Eli Goulart, a great singer with a style that reminds us a bit of Jon Lucien, touched with modes of some of the samba soul 70s generation! The album was recorded in Germany – but has jazzy backings that are perfectly in the mode ... CD

Jun Miyake

Glam Exotica
Beams (Japan), 2003. Used
Nothing glam about this set – as the work here is as sensitive and evocative as previous efforts from Jun Miyake – and like those, it's a unique Japanese take on bossa, jazz, and other more evocative styles – all served up with a really fresh sound overall! Instrumentation is a ... CD

A mixture of smooth new tracks with a jazzy finish, plus classic pop, soul, and Brazilian tunes – redone and rearranged by some of the hip talents at the Aosis label! The record's got the feel of the best new Aosis recordings – kind of a mix of mellow and smooth production, with ... CD
