    All Music Guide Review

    This uneven anthology brings an implausible mix of composers and interpreters. The producer's aim was to present the classical "fossa" repertory in new dressings, mixed with newer compositions, where true proponents of fossa are combined with currently famous artists interpreting classics which are not always related to that style. The fossa style was a typical rendition of sambas-canção with a strong melancholic accent, sometimes performed as bolero and other styles associated with broken-hearted persons drowning their pains in alcohol at a smoky bar's table in late night. Typical artists of that style can be found in this release: Marisa Gatta Mansa, Sílvio César, Nana Caymmi, Pery Ribeiro, Cauby Peixoto, Quarteto em Cy, Tito Madi, Nora Ney and Miltinho. Other excellent artists were taken more opportunistically into the mix, not being representative of that style. Cartola's sambas like "A flor e o espinho," "As rosas não falam" and "O sol nascerá" are included in fossa renditions, but aren't representative of that style, as isn't Caetano's "Dom de iludir." ~ Alvaro Neder, Rovi
