REVIEW by Brazilliance:

One of the finest singers of her time and one of the finest albums of the era – a master’s class of immaculate beauty and perfection.

Such a pity that this was also Elza’s final solo effort. However, she certainly ended her career with a bang since this is a landmark album showing her at the height of her refined artistry backed by exquisite arrangements by Waldemiro Lemke, Erlon Chaves and Ruben Perez ‘Pocho’.

Besides, this album is noteworthy for introducing four songs by Jobim/Moraes on record:

The iconic “Só Danço Samba” and “Samba do Avião”, released on single in October 1962 before included on this album, were introduced in August 1962 by Antônio Carlos Jobim, Os Cariocas and João Gilberto in the historical concert series later bootlegged as “O Encontro au ‘Bon Gourmet’” before featured in the movie Copacabana Palace in November 1962, thus after Elza’s release.

In addition, this album features the first recordings of “Canção em Modo Menor” and “Andam Dizendo” and the first and only recording of “Valsa do Amor de Nós Dois”.
