Spirit Of The Times

LP (Item 9942) Muse, 1975 — Condition: Near Mint-

An incredible set of Brazilian jazz – one of the few albums that percussionist Dom Um Romao recorded as a leader, and sublime all the way through! The record's got a wonderful blend of funky fusion and Brazilian percussion – and features a group from two continents that includes Sivuca on organ, Dom Salvador on electric piano, Joe Beck on guitar, Jerry Dodgion on alto sax, Lloyd McNeill on flute, and Mauricio Smith on tenor, soprano, and flute. Includes the percussion jammer "Shake (Ginga Gingou)", the modal groover "Wait on the Corner", and the lively scatting tune "The Angels" – but the whole album's great, and other tracks include "The Salvation Army", "Kitchen", and "Lamento Negro". (Original pressing with Bell Sound stamp.)  © 1996-2018, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Milton Nascimento (1969)
EMI (Brazil), 1969. Near Mint-
Maybe one of the first truly brilliant albums from Milton Nascimento – a set that builds on the excellent previous work by the singer/songwriter, but which also has him moving into much more soulful territory as well! Nascimento's work is one of the true treasures of Brazilian music of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Quarteto Em Cy Maior
Elenco (Brazil), 1968. Near Mint-
One of the greatest early albums by this lovely female harmony quartet from Brazil – a sublime blend of bossa rhythms and lightly floating vocals – all handled with the incredible flair of the Elenco label at the time! Oscar Castro Neves arranged the material, and the girls do a great ... LP, Vinyl record album
Encontros E Despedidas
Barclay (Brazil), 1985. Near Mint-
Milton Nascimento gets some help here from Pat Metheny and Hubert Laws – and titles include "Lagrima Do Sul", "Raca", "Quem Perguntou Por Mim", "A Primeira Estrela", and "Vidro E Corte". LP, Vinyl record album
Journey To Dawn
A&M, 1979. Near Mint-
One of Milton's last of the 70s – and a darn nice album recorded in the US. The arrangements are larger than ever, with beautifully baroque vocal choruses, strangely orchestrated instrumental passages, and Milton's wonderfully soulful vocals soaring out amidst the whole thing. Milton ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fantasia
Philips (Brazil), 1981. Near Mint-
Gal's in the prime of her sexy diva style here – singing in a sweet warm style with smooth jazzy arrangements that bring out a whole new side of her career. Obviously, the album's not as groundbreaking as some of her early work – but the quality is very high, and Gal's voice is always ... LP, Vinyl record album
Missa Dos Quilombos
Ariola (Brazil), 1982. Near Mint-
This album is a live recording of a performance that seems to be structured like an opera or a long religious ceremony. There are some choral-like moments but some very "normal" songs as well . All the songs were penned by Nascimento, Casaldaliga and Tierra except for one. Tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album
Odeon (Brazil), 1974. Near Mint-
Excellent early work from Simone! Titles include "De Frente Pro Crime", "Degosto", "Quatro Paredes", "Qui Nem Jilo", "Proposta", and "Bodas De Prata". LP, Vinyl record album
Passing Breeze
Cardoso, 1970. Very Good+
An obscure set of Brazilian tunes from the San Francisco scene at the start of the 70s – with some nice bossa instrumental in the mix! LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1965. Very Good-
A great little record, and one that might be thought of best as a "Herbie Mann Plus" record – rather than a duet between the artists on the cover! Half the set features the American release of some great Joao Gilberto material from the early years in Brazil, with arrangements from ... LP, Vinyl record album
Antologia Do Samba Choro
Philips (Brazil), 1978. Very Good+
One of the more unusual 70s albums from Gilberto Gil – a record that has him alternating tracks with Germano Mathias – in a mix of older samba and choro modes! Titles include "Minha Nega Na Janela", "Samba Rubro Negro", "A Situacao Do Escurinho", and " ... LP, Vinyl record album
Are You Ready?
Flying Dutchman, 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold
Reedman Harold Alexander cut very few albums as a leader – and this is one of the best! You're likely to hear Alexander's work in the background on other sessions, but at the time of this record he was also a visionary leader – perfect for the open, freewheeling vibe allowed by the ...

Groove Merchant
Verve, Late 60s. Near Mint-
A great little album of jazzy tracks from multi-talented reedman Jerome Richardson! The album's got a sort of jazzy meets Now Sound sound – sort of like the Benny Golson or Cal Tjader albums on Verve from the time, and it's a great one if you dig that sort of thing. The tracks are mostly ... LP, Vinyl record album
