One of Sergio Mendes' most electric outings from the 70s – a tasty mixture of LA fusion, Brazilian rhythms, and the group's unique twin female vocal lead! The mix of sounds is wonderful – and makes for a really solid album that shows how much soul Sergio had soaked up in the decade he'd spent in as part of the LA musical scene. There's still a strong Brazilian element to the record – thanks to musicians who include Oscar Castro Neves, Claudio Slon, Paulinho Da Costa, Hermeto Pascoal, and Raul De Souza – but most of the lyrics are in English, and the tunes themselves have a blend of R&B and fusion that's plenty sunny and plenty soulful! Titles include "It's So Obvious I Love You", "Sunny Day", "Emorio", "Cut That Out", "It's Up To You", and the tasty instrumental "Shakara".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
