Format: Audio CD
...mostly. There are three tracks that include string arrangements, done with taste and restraint. For the most part, this album is Rosa (vocals and acoustic guitar) with her core band (Helio Alves, piano; Paulo Paulelli, bass; Paulo Brago, drums; and Cyro Baptista, percussion). There's also some very nice work on clarinet and sax from Paquito D'Rivera and Rodrigo Ursaia, respectively -- and a beautiful vocal duet with the great Henri Salvador.

The arrangements are simple and direct -- and beautifully performed, with style and feeling. The recording quality is absolutely first-rate as well -- the samples you can check out on-line are nice, but they don't do justice to the crystalline sound on this album.

Track twelve is designated as a 'bonus track' -- it was recorded about a year and a half before the rest of the album, and features a guest appearance by none other than Yo-yo Ma.

Three of the songs included here were recorded by the great master Joao Gilberto on his historic album of the same title in 1977 -- and as a further homage to his influence on her style (and his place in musical history), Rosa includes 'Essa e pr'o Joao', her co-composition with Arnoldo Medeiros.

Another standout is her wonderful performance of the lovely and humorous 'O pato'.

When I picked this up a few months ago, it stayed in my CD player for several days -- I couldn't get enough of it. It's one of the best Brazilian discs to come my way in a long time. Highly recommended.

If you like your latin streamed through silk you will love this. Soft and gentle, superb musicianship and production. Rosa takes a stroll through some Latin standards such as Voce Vai Ver, Wave, Besame Mucho. The stand out track for me is Chega de Saudade with Yo Yo Ma. This appears on his latin album, Obrigado Brazil, and is the same version.
