This segue of Jacob do Bandolim's famous fast waltzes contrasts the Spanish-flavored Santa Morena with the jazzy and Chopin etude-like Vôo da Mosca. The arrangement is entirely original, placing considerable demands on both the woodwinds and guitars. There are also denser contrapuntal textures that are not within the character of the original Época de Ouro recorded versions.
