Sergio Mendes Artist Snapshot:

Sergio Mendes is a Brazilian pianist/composer who created a highly accessible mix of Latin jazz, bossa nova, and AM-radio soft pop. This sound earned him and his group, Brasil '66 (originally Brasil '65 and later Brasil '77), a string of huge hit records in the '60s, and Mendes has remained an influential figure in world and lounge music circles.

Product Notes

A bridge between bossa nova and 1960s pop, Sergio Mendes'' music was easy listening, vaguely psychedelic pop, light jazz, and bossa nova all rolled into one. Mendes and Brasil ''66 (which featured Mendes on keyboards and a revolving cast of two female vocalists, bass, guitar, drums and percussion) had a number of hits from the mid-''60s to the early-1970s that are included here. Getting his professional start playing and arranging for Antonio Carlos Jobim and Joao Gilberto, Mendes typically filled out his proper albums with updated versions of popular songs written by the Brazilian masters as well as some of his own tunes ­ his tunes "Look Around" and "So Many Stars" are included. But this collection really surveys his interpretations of pop tunes of the day, some of which were never hits for Mendes. The small combo''s light touch and rich vocal harmonies make for pleasant if kitschy covers of hits like the Beatles'' "Fool On The Hill" and "Day Tripper," Burt Bacharach''s "The Look Of Love," and others. ­ --Tad Hendrickson
