AllMusic Review by

This album commemorated the 35 years of César Camargo Mariano's career, one of the most requested arrangers/pianists in Brazil. Dedicated to his solo interpretations for three originals ("Pesqueiro Do São José" reflects a strong influence by Chick Corea) and Brazilian classics, the album is not a jazz release, fitting in the top scale of the instrumental category. Calmly, peacefully, Mariano re-harmonizes old hits in his personal style, which is never revolutionary or aggressive, even when it is hot and swinging.
