A collection of warm and wonderful bossa work from guitarist Sebastiao Tapajos – most of it recorded with a sweetly jazzy sound! The work here is from the late 70s and early 80s – and it features Tapajos on guitar on all numbers, joined by a shifting array of guests who include Paulo Moura on soprano sax, Sivuca on accordion, Mauricion Einhorn on harmonica, Gilson Peranzzetta on piano, and the Zimbo Trio on rhythm. Arrangements are all by Tapajos himself, and although the music was recorded over the period of a few years, there's a relatively unified feel to the set. Titles include "Wave", "Ganga", "Sertao", "Tristeza", "Xingu", "Vale Do Amanhecer", and "Viajeiro".
