AllMusic Review by

Pernambuco guitarist Canhoto has the chops of Baden Powell along with a tight connection to the gorgeous, flowing swing of the street-style pickers at the heart of the Brazilian sound. Enchanting stuff, timeless in the best sense, it's backed by various small combos (guitar, cavaquinho, whatever) and the occasional pandeiro.
