My bad, I know that aren't just standards, in fact I loved some of the songs that weren't standards. Maybe I expressed my idea in a wrong way. The bottom line, is that, for me, the liking has to be of the record complete, or in its major part, but with this one, I had the sensation that very few parts of it was of the quality that Maysa can bring. Is like DiscoStu said:
"I think the general gist here is that no-one is disputing Maysa's voice, but that mainly its the production that puts people off."
