A really cool shift for this hip Brazilian combo – one that you might guess right away from the "samba" in the title! This time around, the rhythms are even more lively than before – lots of tight percussion that spurs the group on strongly, and which also seems to have given a lot more space to the Hammond in the group than the lead guitar! The instruments are used almost equally on this gem of a set – so that some cuts have a bubbling organ samba sound that's like Walter Wanderley or Ed Lincoln, while others still have that twangy guitar we love on other albums by The Pops. Titles include "Desespero De Causa", "Amor De Carnival", "Se Voce Jurar", "Exaltacao A Mangueira", "Nao Tenho Lagrimas", and "Agora E Samba No 1". CD also features two bonus tracks – vocal and instrumental versions of "Butterflies Are Free".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
