AllMusic Review by

In 1965, Carlos Poyares recorded the first volume of Som de Prata, Flauta de Lata ("Silver Sound, Tin Flute"), in which, backed by the Regional do Canhoto, he interpreted classics of choro with his old tin flute, a cheap toy sold in every up-country fair in Brazil, but in his capable hands, a true instrument able to achieve an almost irreproachable intonation and extended resources, including super high pitches. Ten years later, he returned with the second volume of the series, now backed by the Regional do Evandro, but keeping the same high standards of execution for classics by Jaime Florence (Meira), Jacob do Bandolim, Waldir Azevedo, Patápio Silva, and Ernesto Nazareth.
