AllMusic Review by

This compilation is a good compilation of some of the best masters of the choro genre, constituting a good introduction. Covering songs performed by Pixinguinha (together with Benedito Lacerda, this period is representative of the phase when Pixinguinha took the saxophone and began to improvise superb counterchants for Lacerda's soloing on the flute), Jacob do Bandolim, Paulo Moura, Conjunto Galo Preto, Dominguinhos, Deo Rian, and Canhoto, this album represents a tip of the iceberg of the rich choro tradition, but it is worth the trouble.
