Num Dia Azul

from Sampler by Minas - Orlando and Patricia



A fun Bossa Nova/jazz featuring Patricia on piano and vocals, Orlando on guitar and vocals, and an outstanding flute solo by Kofi Burbridge (Derek Trucks Band). Patricia and Orlando were Freshman at University of North Carolina School of the Arts. Hearing there was a Brazilian on campus, Patricia approached Orlando and asked him if he'd write Portuguese lyrics for a Bossa Nova song she had just written. That was the beginning of Minas. It was the first recording date for Kofi, who was only 16.


Num Dia Azul
Brisa soprando
No Mar Azul
Vou navegando
Na praia descalço
Eu ando só

No mar azul
Perco o meu olhar
Penso na paz
Que o verão me dá

Prá você
Penso, sonho, canto,
Prá você
Para se materializar
Nesta praia deserta
Junto a mim

Num dia azul
Perco o meu olhar
Penso na paz
Que o verão me dá
