This 1992 recording marks a return to the rootsy, acoustic small-group style that brought Carvalho acclaim in the '70s. As always, Carvalho's backup is the best that samba has to offer. The musicians on this recording are young, and they manage to capture the general style of the old-time players, even if some of the idiosyncratic, rough-edged charm has been smoothed out.
