A surprising bossa treasure from vocalist Salena Jones – recorded in the 90s, but done with a gently grooving style that takes us back to the 60s – no surprise, as she's got some help from the Jobim family on this one! The tunes are all written by Antonio Carlos Jobim, who also plays piano and supervises the session – aided by son Paulo, who produced and plays guitar, as well as son Daniel, who plays piano too! Given the Jobim-heavy participation, the set's got a perfectly-poised approach to the material – one that really gets the airy feel of the tunes right, and which seems to just float Salena's vocals into the mix on a pillow of sound – providing her with English lyrics for most tunes, so that she really gets at the spirit of the set. Jobim Sr sings on 2 tracks – and titles include "I Was Just One More For You", "Desafinado", "Song Of The Jet", "Bonita", "Girl From Ipanema", "Dindi", and "Somewhere In The Hills". © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.
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. 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.
With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.
