In the Ary Barroso Songbook, more than 50 artists interpret 46 tracks in three volumes. In this third volume, Dorival Caymmi himself opens with "Tu" and Caetano Veloso interprets "Faixa de Cetim"; also included are Chico Buarque, Nana Caymmi, Gal Costa and Luís Brazil, Luiz Melodia and Wagner Tiso, João Nogueira, Itamar Assumpção and Tetê Espíndolla, Beth Carvalho, Sérgio Ricardo, Zeca Pagodinho, Pery Ribeiro, Johnny Alf, Cláudio Nucci and Clara Sandroni, Carlinhos Vergueiro and the trombonist Vittor Santos, and João Bosco.
