AllMusic Review by

Elis Regina's third album displays the young vocalist at an advanced stage of artistry, confident and swinging throughout the album, and in supreme control of her voice. She scats over "Formiguinha Triste," toying with a saxophone very reminiscent of Stan Getz, but lingers over the notes on a melancholy "Tristeza de Carnaval." Astor's arrangements flesh out a small bossa nova group with muted brass and reeds, lending a superb accompaniment to Brazil's brightest young singer.
