Album Review
Reviewed 2005-06-02 
Sophisticated, contemporary bossa nova featuring smooth, jazzy male vocals and acoustic guitar. Most tracks are original compositions by Fonseca, though there are a few covers (including a dishy Portuguese rendition of an Henri Salvador tune). Some tracks accented by percussion, piano, bass and/or flutes.

1. Slow, romantic, almost sleepy. Really pretty.
*2. Relaxed and warm w/sweet use of flutes. Gently swaying.
*3. Lazily jazzy. Very nice guitar/bass/perc/flutes/vox. Yum.
4. A gentle, romantic sway. Nicely melodic.
5. Percussion, voice, guitar. In English. Low key, nice drums.
6. Romantic slow dance w/nicely dramatic sound.
*7. Vocal/guitar duet w/Jorge Drexler. Warm, relaxed, so good.
8. A bright & sleepy little dance. More wine, my dear?
*9. Guitar/perc/sampled sounds/voices. Lazy & kinda fun.
10. A bit more upbeat. The flugelhorn adds a nice touch.
11. A man & his guitar. A broken heart. Alone under the stars.
*13. A delicious jazz bossa nova. Sigh….
