One of the loveliest of all the bossa singers is caught here in some superb arrangements by Oscar Castro-Neves, Maestro Gaya, and Dori Caymmi! This loaded compilation of material features the entirety of Nara Leao's classic self-titled Phillips album from 1967 and the album Vento De Maio – both excellent records that showcase a move away from simple bossa nova into the work that would make her one of the key figures of the Tropicalia scene! The tracks have a wonderful feel – with moments that are rootsier than your average bossa record, and others that are baroque enough to hint at the direction Nara would take a year later with Rogerio Duprat. Production is excellent, and Edu Lobo even guests on the track "De Onde Vens". 23 tracks in all! Other titles include "Quem Te Viu Quem Te Ve", "Vento De Maio", "Maria Joana", "A Praca", "Um Chorinho", "Lancha Nova", "Inspiracao", "No Corado Da Saideira", "Camisa Amarela", and "Se Voce Quiser Saber".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
