AllMusic Review by John Bush

Leading a brassy main-room orchestra, Elis Regina exerts a considerable amount of power on 1965's Samba, Eu Canto Assim!. She swings her way through Edu Lobo's "Rez" while the strings saw sweetly in the background and salutes great Brazilian composers ranging from Dorival Caymmi ("João Valentão"), Marcos Valle ("Preciso Aprender a Ser So"), and Vinicius and Baden Powell (a potpourri comprising "Consolação," "Berimbau," and "Tem Dó").
