Dusty Groove’s records are classified by categories such as jazz, soul, funk and rock—except for one musical session baptized by the name of a country. Brazil, the land of bossa nova, samba and many other unique rhythms, has produced so many individual artists that they do not fit into any conventional label. The selection includes records, CDs and DVDs of Brazil’s world-famous names such as Antonio Carlos Jobim, Joao Gilberto and Vinicius de Moraes along with some rare collector’s items in good condition and fair prices. They also have a nice sample of the new generation such as Ceu, Curumin and Seu Jorge.
