Album Remarks & Appraisals:

MusicWeb International
Cristina Braga is a versatile Brazilian harpist who has played with symphony orchestras as well as pop musicians. For this album she assembled an unusual line-up, including Ricardo Medeiros as musical director and bassist, plus trumpet doubling flugelhorn, vibes and percussion. Their instruments merge beautifully together in a program devoted mainly to bossa novas.

Besides playing the harp with captivating delicacy, Cristina also sings sweetly. That is one of four songs on the album composed by Antonio Carlos Jobim: the others are So Danço Samba, Canta Mais and the instrumental Chovendo Na Roseira. Cristina plays some excellent solos, and her harp blends comfortably with Arthur Dutra's vibes. The music is firmly anchored by Ricardo Medeiros's bass and Joca Moraes's placid drumming.
