AllMusic Review by

Miranda doesn't deserve her camp image. Even her U.S. recordings were often backed by a terrific guitars-and-percussion group, and she was a major Brazilian star of the 1930s. Some of her early output was very à la French cabaret, but this CD brings together a bunch of her samba material, and outstanding it is, too.
