A strong and interesting Walter LP. It's a little more laid back than his records on Verve, all of which I love, but still very nice. This late offering, housed in a beautiful metallic sleeve with a cool Pete Turner photo, has a few vocal tracks (Walter himself does not sing, but there are female guest vocalists, including Anamaria Valle, wife of Marcos Valle). Highlights for me are an English vocal version of the superb 'Andanca' (great song; check out the Elis Regina or Beth Carvalho versions as well), here renamed 'Open your Arms (Let me walk right in)', and a cool version of 'Surfboard'. There's also material composed by Burt Bacharach ('reach out for me'), Eumir Deodato ('On my mind', which has also been sung by Astrud Gilberto and Maria Toledo) and Luiz Gonzaga ('Baiao Da Garoa'), Edu Lobo (the excellent 'Ponteio') and Chico Buarque ('Ole, Ole, Ola'). A nice LP
