AllMusic Review by

For this trio album with bassist Joe Byrd and drummer Wayne Phillips, Charlie Byrd (who long ago became an innovator by bringing the classical guitar into jazz) performs a bossa-nova oriented program which, in addition to a pair of Antonio Carlos Jobim tunes, Luiz Bonfa's "The Gentle Rain" and Dori Caymmi's "Saudade Da Bihia," includes four of Byrd's own compositions in the style. The music is typically exquisite, pretty and subtle and the performances grow in interest with each listen.
