Alexia Bomtempo — Suspiro ... LP 16.99

A set recorded in Brooklyn, but one with plenty of Brazilian spirit in the music – served up in a mix of English and Portuguese lyrics, with a breathy sort of charm that really takes us back to the 60s! The album's more jazz vocals than bossa nova, but definitely has some of the latter – and the group features Piano and Rhodes from Vitor Goncalves, trumpet from Michael Leonhart, and guitar from Jake Owen – who moves between acoustic and electric to give the songs just the right vibe. Alexia sings wonderfully – with the sort of patience that allows a tune to develop in the right way – ala Astrud Gilberto at her best – and tracks include "Mais Devagar", "Grao", "Even Now", "Fim De Sonho", "Serpente", "Floating Away", and "Evergreen" – plus one Japanese track as well.  © 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.

Brazilian rhythms meet electronic production – in what had been a very successful run for the late Suba. He wasn't really a native, but his time in Brazil led him to work with a number of strong young talents – including Bebel Gilberto, whose album he produced. Titles include "Seg ... CD

Elis Regina

Elis (1972)
Philips (Brazil), 1972. Used
A stunning step forward for the great Elis Regina – and a landmark record that would set the stage for most of her final work to come in the 70s! The album's got less of the jazz or bossa inflections of her music from the 60s – and instead moves into this richly sophisticated style ... CD

Microservice (Brazil), 2009. Used
A charming little set from Arnaldo Antunes – a record that's got perhaps a bit less of the arty touches of years past, but in a good way! The music is by a small combo that's heavy on guitars, and the tunes bounce along with lots of playful, quirky qualities – darn catchy, even if you ... CD

Walter Wanderley

Rain Forest
Verve, 1966. Used
An album that not only broke the bossa big in the US – but a set that also really helped transform the sound of the organ in jazz! Not only is the record a key meeting of bossa rhythms and jazz organ – transplanted hugely to the US after a big initial Wanderley run in 60s Brazil – ... CD

Philips/Mr Bongo (UK), 1973. Used
One of the richest, most expressive albums ever from the great Gal Costa – a set from her immediate post-Tropicalia years, and one that shows that she's got a lot more to offer than just a wild sense of experimentation! Gilberto Gil is the musical director here – with help from Rogerio ... CD

After Hours
Owl (France), 1994. Used
Beautiful duets between Lee and Waldron – sparely recorded, with no other instrumentation save for Lee's vocals and Waldron's piano. The range of material includes older standards done with an eerie edge – like "Caravan", "Every Time We Say Goodbye", and "You ... CD
