This is an odd release for Ocora, but a agreeable one. Apparecida, France's favorite Brazilian, has taste, skill and versatility to spare. Here she sings material ranging from Escola de Samba to numbers by Jobim and Buarque. Some of the samba-school drumming was obviously overdubbed, but most of her backings rest on the wonderful basics of cavaquinho-plus-percussion.
