Offered for sale is a Brazilian reissue pressing of Dance Moderno, the 1963 debut LP by Sergio Mendes.
About this copy: This copy of Dance Moderno is a recent (post-2000) Brazilian reissue on the Philips label of an album that was originally released in 1963.
We don’t know exactly when this LP was reissued, but the cover is thinner than that of the original release.
The cover is M-. The disc is VG++ and close to M- with a couple of scuffs from the original paper sleeve. The record may be unplayed.
A nice copy of a pretty good Bossa Nova LP that’s hard to find on vinyl. We think it’s worth owning for the cover alone.
Background: Released in 1963, Dance Moderno was the first album by Sergio Mendes.
The first Sergio Mendes LP bears few of the soft pop hallmarks of his subsequent Brasil ’66 classics. Instead, Dance Moderno is a focused and straight-ahead collection of bossa nova grooves firmly in debt to the acknowledged master of the form, Antonio Carlos Jobim. Paired with a small, tight supporting unit, Mendes proves himself an inventive and intense pianist, shaped by both traditional Latin music and American jazz.
