I have a lot of problems with this album. Milton's vocal style just doesn't work for me. Like Dave, I'm more accustomed to the jazz vein of Jobim/Wanderley/Tamba 4 that has deep roots in a classical tradition. Nascimento goes for that truly indigenous quality that doesn't always seem to mesh well with the lush instrumentals. Also, I'm not really gone on Deodato as an arranger. The organ he uses here sounds almost like a church pipe organ (must be using the right drawbars and reverb on a Hammond), which is a little kooky for these types of songs. On the whole, only about three tracks are worth repeat listening. 3 stars - generously.
