AllMusic Review by Ron Wynn

Guitarist, harmonica player, and whistler Toots Thielemans’ followup to the critically acclaimed Brasil Project doesn’t stray far from its predecessor’s path. There are 13 nice Afro-Latin selections with Thielemans backing such top Brazilian vocalists as Milton Nascimento, Gilberto Gil, Ivan Lins, Caetano Veloso, and Dori Caymmi, among others, and guitarists Oscar Castro-Nieves and Lee Ritenour assisting Thielemans with delicate shadings and accompaniment.
