"It is hard to ruin Djavan with a bad production. I have heard another version of "Samurai" that I like better, same with Stevie Wonder in harmonica. "Sina" is not as good either. Maybe it is Ronnie Foster's influence? In general, arrangements are very weak in comparison to other CDs he has: when you listen to Oceano, and then to this, you feel a noticeable difference. Well crafted, yet not Djavan's best. Maybe a good start if you have only been listening mostly US music, because it introduces some of Djavan's interesting elements in a softer way, but once you are ready, you may want to move on. Then you can hand this CD to someone else. Or if you do not like it, blame the producers. I do."
Djavan at his best

"For me, this album perfectly compliments its predecessor, "Seduzir". Produced by Ronnie Foster and featuring the likes of jazz greats Ernie Watts and Harvey Mason, this is a classic example of Brasilian jazz. Stand-outs are: "Samurai" (featuring Stevie Wonder on harmonica), "Pétala", "Açaí" and the title track."
