AllMusic Review by

Tadeu Franco dedicated this album to Orlando Silva, one of the best singers of all time in Brazil. Covering the classics made hits by Orlando, which was a precursor of the casual bossa nova delivery, the repertoire of this excellent release was written by such composers as Assis Valente, Custódio Mesquita, Benedito Lacerda, Lupicínio Rodrigues, Newton Teixeira, Pixinguinha, Lamartine Babo, Ataulfo Alves, and other great creators. Songs like "Nada Além," "Brasa," "Sertaneja," "Carinhoso," and "Rosa" are interpreted by Tadeu Franco, surrounded by choice musicians, in the best Brazilian tradition of choros, sambas, canções, and even fox trot, genuinely appropriated by Brazilians in the same way soccer was.
