AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow

Although baritonist Gerry Mulligan is listed as the leader of this date, vocalist Jane Duboc is really the main star. The Brazilian-oriented set consists of eight Mulligan originals (including “Tema Pra Jobim,” which finds him switching to piano, and “Willow Tree”) and three other numbers, with “Wave” being the only standard.

Duboc sings well, although her voice never sticks in one’s mind, and Mulligan has short solos and mostly sticks to the background; they are joined by a couple of Brazilian rhythm sections. Pleasant music that mostly stands out as a historical curiosity in Gerry Mulligan’s discography.
