Although there are quite a few musicians on this set by Brazilian guitarist/singer Toninho Horta, the other musicians mostly just add colors and are a bit of a frivolity. Horta, whose playing is melodic and pretty while his singing is haunting, is virtually the whole show. The music is more commercial than on his more intimate releases (with funkier rhythms), but Horta plays and sings in his usual atmospheric fashion. Although not quite essential, this early release from Horta will be enjoyed by his fans.
