Beautiful stuff – and a record we never tire of hearing! This album's a sublime extension of the earlier Brazilian style of the Tamba Trio – in a set that has them adding a fourth member, and picking up some cool new sounds from producer Creed Taylor! The set brings the group's earlier blend of bossa jazz and vocal harmonies into play with Taylor's spacious sensibilities in the early days of CTI – that stretch when the label was partnered with A&M Records, in a mode that also echoes some of the best studio qualities of that imprint too! The songs are longer than usual – nicely stretched out in a beautiful blend of jazz, bossa, and voice – and tracks include a classic reading of Luiz Eca's "The Dolphin", a great take on "Canto De Ossahana", and the tracks "Flower Girl", "We & The Sea", and "Lemanja". (Japanese pressing – non-gatefold, but with great vinyl!)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Sure it's not the Tropicalia era, and sure the record's not psychedelic – but it's still a nice batch of tracks by Gal, with some very nice 70s jazzy electric backing. The album features a nice remake of "India", plus the tracks "Forca Estranha", "Olha", "Me ... LP, Vinyl record album
