A beautiful album of straight Brazilian samba from singer Miriam Aida – normally known as the vocalist in electronic group A Bossa Eletrico, but stepping out here in a much more acoustically-styled set! Miriam's got a really lovely voice that sounds even better in a lighter setting like this than it does on the Bossa Eletrico work – and tunes are a mix of older Brazilian numbers from the 60s and 70s – compositions by Jobim, Baden Powell, Jorge Ben, and others. Instrumentation includes lots of guitar, cavaquinho, and bandolim – plus a bit of well-used sax and flute from Fredrik Kronkvist, another player with experience in electronica, but roots in more traditional modes. Titles include "Reza", "Por Causa De Voce Meninha", "Umas Flores", "Deixa", "Ensam Kvar", "Folhas Secas", and "Estrada Do Sol". © 1996-2020, 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.
When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.
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.
