From Billboard - June 10, 1967: The Wanderley organ gives something fresh to this album of bossa nova numbers and, at the same time, establishes him in the ranks of Jobim and Getz. This LP should make it big in both the pop and jazz areas. The Brazilian organist does a remarkable job on "Summer Samba," and all the other songs.

Samba De Verao (Summer Samba)

Mar, Amar (Sea... To Love)
