AllMusic Review by

Another sample of the important research work developed by Marcus Pereira on his Marcus Pereira Discos, Brasil, Flauta, Cavaquinho e Violão is included in the instrumental music series developed by the label, this time with the production of Luís Carlos Paraná. The musical formation around which the choro genre was historically crystallized (flute, cavaquinho, and guitar) is represented in this project by Manuel Gomes (flute), Benedito Costa (cavaquinho), and Geraldo Cunha and Adauto Santos on guitars (violão), with the additional support of Fritz (from Trio Mocotó) at the pandeiro. Good performances, though not unmistakable as Brasil, Sax e Clarineta, recorded by Abel Ferreira for the same series.
