AllMusic Review by

This release is inscribed in the Brazilian samba-jazz category. Experienced saxophonist Teco Cardoso is joined here by pianist Guilherme Vergueiro, singer Joyce, violonista Paulo Bellinati, Nailor "Proveta" Azevedo, and other excellent professionals. Truly swinging hot solos, in compositions like "O Morro Não Tem Vez" (Tom Jobim/Vinícius de Moraes), "Até Jazz" (Joyce/Paulo César Pinheiro), and others. The collective original "Arawetés" gathers some of Cardoso's companions -- Banda Pau Brasil, Marlui Miranda, and Rodolfo Stroeter -- in the old band's vein: world instrumental music inspired by Weather Report with strong influence of Brazilian Indians music.
