Great, Great, Great!!!

"Djavan was first introduced to my collection in 1984. This album has been my favorite for many years. I don't have it on CD, but I will as soon as it's available. "Esquinas" is so smooth and relaxing. Even though the album is in Portuguese, it's still a great find. Buy it, if you can find it!!"
Great Brazilian/American Crossover

"I bought this album 15 years ago for 5 guilders (a bit more than 2 dollars) in a supermarket during a sale. My girlfriend back then was very surprised that I bought an album of an unknown Brazilian artist without having listened to the songs on the album. I had heard one track of the album on the radio and that was enough to be sure that I would not be disappointed. Also the names of some of the finest LA studio musicians was a second argument to be confident about my purchase (this is not always true). I really liked the album and my girlfriend liked it even better. The light Brazilian grooves together with intriguing Portuguese lyrics keep your attention from the first track till the last. Djavan is an excellent composer, arranger and singer who produces records of consistent high quality."
One of the Best!!!

"This recording introduced me to Brazilian music at an early age and made me a believer. There is something to be said for non-corporate derived music that can be enjoyed even without being able to speak the language of the artist. Djavan's emotional delivery is simply understood. Every cut on this one shines. I wore this one out on vinyl, then someone 'borrowed' it from me years ago. I've been looking for it ever since. Well, it is nice to know it out on CD. I will have to get a copy or two. So will you..just in case!"
