AllMusic Review by

Coherent with the album title, this release by Leila Pinheiro has the excellent singer interpreting not only her preference, bossa nova ("Errinho Á Toa"), but other styles as well, with highlights of swinging tunes like the baião by Guinga/Aldir Blanc "Esconjuro," which opens the album and predicts Catavento E Girassol (1996), the splendid release by Pinheiro dedicated to the excellent duo of songwriters. Also includes two highly expressive ballads for which she provided important renditions that became hits, Walter Franco's "Serra Do Luar" and Eduardo Gudin/J. C. Costa Netto's "Paulista." Caetano Veloso's bossa "Coração Vagabundo" also marked this album with its good performance on the radio. "Noturna" (Guinga/P. C. Pinheiro) has dense melody/lyrics and a wonderful violão rendition by Marco Pereira.
