AllMusic Review by

Almir Chediak, the owner of the label Lumiar, has been receiving important awards for his Songbook series, which pays a deserving tribute to great names of Brazilian music, always interpreted by a selected number of important Brazilian musicians. In the Ary Barroso Songbook, more than 50 artists interpret 46 tracks in three volumes. In this second volume, Tim Maia opens with "Aquarela Do Brasil" and Edu Lobo and Tom Jobim interpret "Pra Machucar Meu Coração"; also included are João Bosco, Elba Ramalho and Oswaldinho, Leny Andrade, Dominguinhos, Emílio Santiago, Zé Renato and the virtuoso violonista Marco Pereira, Carlos Lyra, Marília Barbosa and Nó em Pingo D'água (a choro regional), Jards Macalé, the immortal malandro Moreira da Silva, the fundamental seresteiro Sílvio Caldas and Aurora Miranda (Carmem's sister), Os Cariocas, and Marlene and Garganta Profunda.
