Album Review
Don Farrell
Reviewed 2005-07-28 
Percussion is OUTSTANDING. Probably the best recording ever done by Sergio Mendes. The best of Brazil's percussionists and songwriters. All vocals in Portuguese, except #4.
***1: 100 percussionists from Rio's Samba de Escolas (samba schools) call and response drumming , the leader is setting the rhythm and tempo and the group responds, then everyone kicks in, female vocals.
****2: Samba reggae & baiao (folk style from the Northeast). Fast drumming and vocals. There is an MTV type video and it is GREAT
**3: slower Samba reggae and Forro (fast style from the Northeast). Male and female vocals and chorus.
*4: Bahian style rap, in English. Afoxe (African influenced).
**5: Female vocalists, great percussion, mid tempo
**6: gentle samba, female vocalists., great couples dance.
7: Male vocal and guitar, different structured samba, slower.
8: Funk, R&B, sax and guitar, female vocalists.
9: Carlinhos Brown vocal, pop, jazzy, slower.
10: female vocalists, slower, flute and oboe.
11: a samba in 3/4 time, female vocalists, means popcorn, possible reference to the people who at Carnaval time catch one group here and dash to a different part of the city to see some other group.
***12: Carlinhos Brown vocal, female chorus, fast, great singing and percussion.
13: slow, female vocal, guitar, cello and oboe.
14: short 0:29 seconds, batucadu( fast percussion) ` D Farrell 03/98
