This is a great collaboration of two master musicians for a remarkable Brazilian Jazz album; Eliane Elias and Randy Brecker (married at the time), with an album in dedication to their daughter Amanda. This album is listed as Randy Brecker and Eliane Elias; even though, it should've been Eliane Elias and Randy Brecker since Eliane's presence, performance and arrangements are more prominent than Randy's, but that was just a marketing strategy since Eliane was just being introduced to the North American audience. Anyway, that doesn't deminish the artistry here.
Eliane Elias' second record for Bluebird is, like the previous Kissed by Nature, a vocal date intended for crossover audiences. Elias connects with her Brazilian pop heritage by choosing to sing, early on, a pair of Astrud Gilberto pieces, "Call Me" and "So Nice (Summer Samba)," both of which fortuitously suit the short range of her voice. Still, she speaks far more with a half-minute of piano soloing than she does with several minutes of vocal interpretation, and sounds far more comfortable taking an extra verse of the latter in Portuguese.
