AllMusic Review by

Although Herbie Mann's flute is typically melodic and lively, the music on this out-of-print Atlantic album is generally pretty routine. Mann uses a "contemporary" electric rhythm section on a variety of then-recent Brazilian tunes, his own "Gold Rush" and even the "Theme from Tootsie"; the results were dated within a year of this record's release.
