Brazilian Blend

LP (Item 9943) Philips, Mid 60s — Condition: Very Good+

Groovy pop organ tunes from Brazil's famous organist! Walter plays in the light peppy style he used on his Verve albums, with plenty of nice organ riffing all the way through! Most tracks are bossa numbers, and titles include "Go Go Theme", "Counting Stars", "White Ball", "The World", "Forget Domani", and "The Lonely One".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has a small cutout hole and a piece of masking tape on the top seam.)

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.

CTI/A&M (Mexico), Late 60s. Very Good
An amazing leap forward for the incredible Walter Wanderley – a record that has him mixing his earlier bossa groove with the wider vision of late 60s A&M/CTI – supported by an amazing cast of American and Brazilian artists! The vibe is wonderful from the very first note – a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Walter Wanderley

O Samba E Mais Samba
Odeon (Brazil), Mid 60s. Very Good
Genius work by Walter Wanderley – and rare too! This sparkling set features the organist at his best, crafting tight little bossa and samba tunes with care, using that streamlined organ sound that he virtually pioneered at the time, and which works so wonderfully with the album's short jazzy ...

Maria Bethania & Caetano Veloso

Maria Bethania & Caetano Veloso Ao Vivo
Philips (Brazil), 1978. Near Mint-
An incredibly great live set from one of the most famous brother/sister teams in music! Maria and Caetano share the stage on about half the cuts, dueting in a way that's even better than we expected – especially because Caetano's warm fragile vocals are a perfect counterpoint to Maria's deep ... LP, Vinyl record album

Maria Bethania

Memoria De Pele
Philips (Brazil), 1989. Very Good
One of Maria Bethania's great collaborations with arranger Jaime Alem – an artist we loved as part of the team of Jaime & Nair back in the 70s, and who's really helping Bethania find some deeper space here in the middle years of her career! At a time when Maria had moved into some of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philips (Brazil), 1993. Very Good+
A set of compositions penned by Roberto and Erasmo Carlos – sung by Maria Bethania in a warmly personal setting! The style here gets away from any of the too-romantic qualities that can sometimes mar presentation of the Carlos' brothers work – and instead, Bethania uses her innate ... 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
Philips (Brazil), Early 60s. Very Good
A rare bit of samba jazz from Brazil – the only album we've ever seen by this Hammond-lead combo featuring organist Paulo Roberto! Roberto's sound is clean and lean – very much in the spirit of Walter Wanderley from the same period, and backed here with a similar blend of snapping ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fantastica Bateria

Fantastica Bateria 1
Top Tape (Brazil), 1975. Very Good+
Despite the fact that this album says it contains "The Most Fantastic Brazilian Beating Groups", it fails to tell you who they are! Who cares, though – as the set's a great batch of batucada tracks, with very spare raw production that makes them all sound great. Titles include ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rozenblit (Brazil), 1967. Near Mint-
A fantastic early album from Jorge Ben – and one that's also a bit obscure, given that it was one of the few that he didn't cut for Philips Records during the first decade of his career! The album's one of Jorge's most upbeat, most lively – with the kind of ebullient mix of samba and ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA (Mexico), Late 60s. Very Good+
Nice bossa guitar work from this Mexican player! Titles include "Cal's Pals", "Batucada", "Manha De Carnaval", and "Silenciosa". LP, Vinyl record album

Paulinho Da Costa

Agora
Pablo, 1977. Very Good Gatefold
A tasty session of west coast Brazilian grooves – cut by the great percussionist Paulinho Da Costa, with a group that includes Claudio Slon, Larry Williams, and Lee Ritenour. The record's got a very nice breezy feel – with a sound that's similar to some of the Fantasy Brazilian LPs of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Manfredo Fest

Manifestations
Tabu, 1979. Very Good+
An incredible batch of Brazilian fusion – cut by keyboardist Manfredo Fest, and one of the few records he ever waxed in the US during the 70s! The record mixes Fest's soaring Brazilian groove with a tight soulful set of arrangements by Jerry Peters – a bit club-oriented, with a similar ... LP, Vinyl record album
