This album brings Toquinho and his characteristic tender samba style in a pop setting with keyboards and a generally commercial approach, reinforced by Sadao Watanabe's sax solos. The only hits covered by the duo are the instrumental "Samba da volta" (the best track), by Toquinho and Vinícius, and "Carinhoso," by Pixinguinha and João de Barro, also more convincing than the rest of the album, with the instrumental duo unaccompanied. The other songs were composed by both in partnership. Easy listening.
