Sealed Gatefold Original. "Wanderley's Second Album During Creed Taylor's A&M Residency Opens With A Bang, A Fantastic Rendition Of The Old Northern Brazilian Standard "Asa Branca" That Evokes The Exhilaration Of A Street Carnival. Midway Through, The Tempo Kicks Up, The Band Settles Into A Two-Chord Vamp, And The Performance Lifts Into Orbit; Even The Normally Mild-Mannered Wanderley Dances Wildly On Organ And Electric Harpsichord. Nothing Else Here, Even The Provocatively Titled "Proton, Electron, Neutron," Approaches Asa Branca’s Energy. Yet On The Whole, This Is A Somewhat Better Album Than Its Predecessor On A&M; The Sound Is More Open And Less Confined. The Selection Remains Predominantly Brazilian, With An Occasional American Ringer Like "Soulful Strut" And Another Jimmy Webb Tune, "5:30 Plane." The Female Voices (One Of Whom Is Flora Purim) Return On A Few Tracks; So Do Hubert Laws And Romeo Penque On Flutes. Eumir Deodato Is In Charge Of The Mauve-Colored Charts For Flutes, Trumpets And Violas, And Airto Moreira Makes An Early Impression Pumping Up The Percussion Section." Richard Ginell, AMG.
