AllMusic Review by

Similar to the others in the series, Sambas Enredo: Academico Do Salgueiro contains ten songs, each of which features a solo vocalist (or, in the case of "Historia do Carnaval," a group, specifically Grupo Vocal as Getas e Conjunto Nosso Samba). Although the soloists -- Touro, Quinho, Zezé Mota, Sombrinha -- won't be very familiar to most listeners, they all sound good, and deliver warm, fun, intricate samba, all of which is helped by the excellent backing band. For someone just looking for good samba, regardless of track or singer, Sambas Enredo: Academico Do Salgueiro is a pretty good choice, but if this isn't your objective, it's better to look elsewhere.
