All Music Guide - Richard S. Ginell
Paul Desmond's first genuine all-Brazilian album under the Creed Taylor signature was a beauty, a collection of songs by the then-moderately known Edu Lobo and the emerging giant Milton Nascimento, then only in his early twenties. All Desmond has to do is sit back and ride the Brazilian grooves while lyrically ruminating on whatever pops into his head. It sounds so effortless -- until you try it yourself. The swirling, often gorgeous orchestral arrangements are by Don Sebesky one CD edition mistakenly gives Claus Ogerman credit on the cover, Airto Moreira leads the samba-flavored percussion forces, and Lobo and his wife Wanda de Sah appear on three of Lobo's four ...

All Music Guide - Richard S. Ginell
Paul Desmond's first genuine all-Brazilian album under the Creed Taylor signature was a beauty, a collection of songs by the then-moderately known Edu Lobo and the emerging giant Milton Nascimento, then only in his early twenties. All Desmond has to do is sit back and ride the Brazilian grooves while lyrically ruminating on whatever pops into his head. It sounds so effortless -- until you try it yourself. The swirling, often gorgeous orchestral arrangements are by Don Sebesky one CD edition mistakenly gives Claus Ogerman credit on the cover, Airto Moreira leads the samba-flavored percussion forces, and Lobo and his wife Wanda de Sah appear on three of Lobo's four songs. Lobo's "To Say Goodbye," "Circles," and "Martha and Romao" have exactly the brand of wistful sadness that Desmond could communicate so well; on the former, de Sah has to sing well below the register with which she is comfortable, and the strain is painfully obvious. Some of Nascimento's best early tunes are here, including the tense title track, the popping "Catavento," and "Canto Latino." "Catavento" inspires a particularly inventive solo from Desmond where he pulls out one of his age-old tricks, quoting "St. Thomas." This 2000 Verve "By Request" edition adds no less than six alternate takes to the package.

    Desmond meets Brazil & it works!

    I know there are jazz purists who will turn their noses up at this album, but if you are a fan of Jobim, Mendes, etc, you really should check this out. The arrangements are superb, the tunes are memorable, & this also gives us some unreleased bonus material. Nobody played like Paul Desmond!This album was the result of an idea from Sergio Mendes that came to fruition (with thanks to Herb Alpert who knows his jazz as well). Now please reissue the first Desmond recording for A&M - Summertime & I'll be happy! Oh by rhe way, there are vocals on two tracks, but do not worry. They absolutely work in this context.
