Standout tracks on the album include a remix of Bebel Gilberto's "August Day Song" by King Britt, a short vocal performance by Seu Jorge over the top of a funky cut from BiD, and the new bossa cut of Paula Morelenbaum that harks back directly to the work of Jobim and de Moraes, but with a tight little cut of drum'n'bass added in. A highly consistent album, rarely leaving the realm of the key groove.
