What the critics say:

"...a pleasant journey. She's a smoky-voiced chanteuse who works hard in Portuguese, French and English to make this a sensual encounter. Kleiman is more reserved but no less essential...Flutist Marc Adler offers up a lot of choice counterpoint to Chapell's importunings."
- Philadelphia Inquirer

"Singer and guitarist Phyllis Chapell stands out on every number, singing as she does the tunes interchangeably in English and Portuguese with clarity and understanding of the lyrics. Often backed by flutist Marc Adler, who assumes a Dave Valentin sensibility about things Brazilian, Chapell goes beyond singing...Extending lyrics into sonic possibilities, Chapell's voice becomes another one of the instruments as she wordlessly asserts melody and takes the songs along her own route, wavering half tones and zooming along with sounds of her own making in approximation of instrumental sounds." - Jazz News
