AllMusic Review by

While the first volume in this set of Brazilian samba music, gathered by producer Katsunori Tanaka, featured outstanding material, this second disc is a bit more ragged. Many of the performers, such as Carlos Cachaca and Babau, sound a bit past their prime, too often hitting flat notes. There are some nice grooves here, but too many rough patches.
