One of the funkiest albums Sergio Mendes ever recorded – a monster of a record that's filled with enough dancefloor groovers to have had a big impact on the soul market in the US!

✨✧ Sergio MendesSergio Mendes (1975) ... LP
Elektra, 1975. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A very groovy batch of soul and pop tracks from Sergio, recorded with some nice smooth 70s arrangements, and nice jazzy production by Dave Grusin. The whole thing's got a very nice LA sound to it, and is a good adaptation of Sergio's pop Brazil sound to a more modern vibe. Sergio gets help from ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sergio MendesSergio Mendes' Favorite Things ... LP
Atlantic, 1968. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A sweet little pairing of the keyboards of Sergio Mendes and the early arranging styles of Dave Grusin – and a set that's quite different than some of Sergio's vocal albums with Brasil 66! The style here is all instrumental – and Mendes plays both piano and electric piano, plus a bit ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A&M (Japan), 1967. Used ... $6.99
The second album by Sergio and crew – and a real push forward for the group! The basic format of two-female harmony leads is still in place – but for some reason, this album gives a bit more of a nod to Brazilian roots than before, and really spices things up with an even more ... read more CD

Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66Fool On The Hill ... LP
A&M, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $6.99
One of our favorite albums by Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 – a perfect bridge between the simple pop of earlier records, and the group's expanding sound as the 70s approached! The warmly glowing Brasil 66 style is still very strongly in place, but the music here is all a bit hipper – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Dreamy bossa pop from the A&M studios of the 60s – the Brasil 66 sound at its best!

Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66Ye-Me-Le (Japanese pressing) ... CD
A&M (Japan), 1969. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Way past the hits, and into some really great territory – a move that makes the record one of our favorite Sergio Mendes sets for A&M! The sweeter bossa pop style here is undercut with a bit more influence from late 60s Brazilian grooves – some of the more baroque turns that Sergio' ... read more CD

A really unique little album from Sergio Mendes and Brasil 77 – one that's in a much more rootsy style than any of his other work!

Sergio Mendes & Brasil '88Sergio Mendes & Brasil '88 ... LP
Elektra, 1978. Near Mint- ... $3.99
The title says "88", but the album's from 1978 – and it's one of Sergio's great sets from the 70s that mixes older Brazilian roots with sweeter American soul! The sound is really wonderful – almost more LA than Rio, but still with plenty of Brazilian elements filtered into ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A real classic from Sergio Mendes – probably most famous for its funky bits!

An excellent little album that Sergio recorded in the US – with a sweet funky electric sound that's very different than his other work!

MiltinhoEu Miltinho ... CD
RGE/Som Livre (Brazil), Early 60s. Used ... $8.99
A classic set of samba from Miltinho – done in a mix of lively styles and more romantic modes! Some tracks here are quite driving and upbeat, while others have a sadder, more emotive feel – a bit like Brazilian pop of the late 50s, but perhaps somewhat leaner overall – and in a ... read more CD
