Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66Classics Vol 18 ... CD
A&M, 1960s/1970s. Used ... $5.99
Was there ever anyone groovier than these guys? We don't think so – as Sergio had it all: 2 female singers in the lead, great bossa nova backing, and production on his records that couched the grooves in the pillowy-soft pop style of the A&M studios! This 17 track package isn't much on looks – but it does feature a great retrospective of Sergio's work – mostly 60s numbers, with a few of the best 70s and 80s numbers thrown in for good measure. Titles include "Pais Tropical", "So Many Stars", "Pretty World", "Bim Bom", "Never Gonna Let You Go", "Alibis", "Song Of No Regrets", "Mas Que Nada", "Scarborough Fair", "Look Around", "Like A Lover", "One Note Samba/Spanish Flea", "Going Out Of My Head", and "Look Of Love".

Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66Frog/Watch What Happens ... 7-inch
A&M, Late 60s. Very Good+ (pic cover)... $4.99
A very groovy single from Sergio Mendes! "The Frog" is a gem by Joao Donato – also recorded under the name "A Sapo" – and the cut's got a jaunty little groove with a back-forth melody that's totally dreamy, and perfect for the Brasil 66 sound! "Watch What Happens" is Michel Legrand's great tune, done in a warm and wonderful style! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Sleeve has some pen, light wrinkling, and light peeling on the back.)

A&M (Japan), 1969. Used ... $9.99
Dreamy loveliness from Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66! The album's one of their true 60s classics for A&M – a sublime blend of female vocals, Brazilian rhythms, and jazzy instrumentation – groovily dancing with a light and breezy sound that influenced a generation, and which still sounds pretty darn fresh to our ears today! The album's filled with great versions of Brazilian tunes – and titles include Marcos Valle's "Viola", Edu Lobo's "Crystal Illusions", Milton Nascimento's "Empty Faces", plus "Song Of No Regrets", "Salt Sea", and "Dois Dias". Nice stuff, and very groovy! CD

A&M, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $4.99
A classic double-length collection of work by Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 – originally titled a "Foursider" because of the 2LP format of the original! The package is overflowing with greatness by the group – and the extra space allows the set to include some real gems from the later A&M years – a time when the group were hitting the charts a bit less than before, and really deepening their Brazilian groove! These later tracks are all plenty darn great – and show echoes of changes going on in late 60s Brazilian music – not Tropicalia entirely, but some of the groovier moments at EMI/Odeon and Philips, with traces of influences from Edu Lobo, Marcos Valle, Jorge Ben, and Luiz Carlos Vinhas. 21 tracks in all – with titles that include "Ye Me Le", "After Sunrise", "Pais Tropical", "Crystal Illusions", "Mas Que Nada", "Bim Bom", "Look Of Love", "Chelsea Morning", "After Midnight", and their breakbeat version of "For What It's Worth".

Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66Herb Alpert Presents Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66 (Japanese pressing) ... CD
A&M (Japan), 1966. Used ... $9.99
The start of a legend – and the very first album by Sergio Mendes' Brasil 66 group, proudly brought to the world through the godlike talents of a young Herb Alpert! Sergio was no stranger to the recording studio by the time of this set, but the record marked a real shift in his music – a change from the mostly-instrumental bossa modes he first forged back in Brazil, and a shift to warmer, sweeter pop with a nice sunny California finish – done through unique production techniques and the group's trademark two-lady lead vocals! The sound is tremendous, and is possibly heard in its purest form here – simple, focused, and given that near-perfect A&M sound through Herb's production skills. Titles include the classics "Daytripper", "Aqua De Beber", "O Pato", "Berimbau", "Mas Que Nada", and "The Joker". CD

The greatest and grooviest hits from Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 – that completely charming little group that really warmed up pop at the end of the 60s! The tunes here are awash in bossa rhythms, and topped with the group's trademark two-gal harmony style – a sound that reaches out from both sides of the speakers and wraps you up with a wonderfully sweet feeling – while the grooves at the bottom really keep things moving. The set's filled with classics – titles that include "Fool On the Hill", "With A Little Help From My Friends", "Look Around", "Scarborough Fair", "Pretty World", "Look Of Love", "Day Tripper", and "Mas Que Nada".

A&M, 1969. Very Good+ ... $5.99
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's contemporaries back home were taking, mixed with a few of the trippier influences that were coming into the scene as well. The overall style is still in the warm two-voiced mode that made Brasil 66 famous, but we appreciate some of the headier moments moving into the mix – partly from the guitar of Oscar Castro Neves, as well as the orchestrations by a young Dave Grusin! Titles include the fantastic title cut "Ye-Me-Le" – a wonderful groover written by Luiz Carlos Vinhas – plus a number of excellent covers, like "Norwegian Wood", "What The World Needs Now", "Moanin", and "Where Are You Coming From?".

A&M/Verve, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 interesting array of songs! There's a bit less of the pop/cover style than before, and a bit more of a nod towards the hipper side of Brazilian music – especially the modernists of the bossa nova generation. Brazilian tunes include versions of "Constant Rain", "Cinnamon & Clove", "Bim Bom", and "Wave" – and there's also a few nice English numbers, like their hit version of "Night & Day", and a great reading of "Watch What Happens"!

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 – tunes that show the growing sophistication of Brazilian music in the post-bossa years – picked up on by Sergio, and reworked for a larger audience in the US! The record's got some incredibly wonderful material – including a sublime cover of "Upa Neguinho", plus versions of "Casa Forte", "Canto Triste", "Lapinha", and "Laia Ladaia", a song that's a perfect fit for the group's unique style! Also includes the dreamy number "When Summer Turns To Snow", and the group's classic cover of "Scarborough Fair"! CD

A killer set by Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 – recorded in Japan in 1970, and never issued in the US! The album's the rarest that Sergio ever cut, and it's a real gem – a live show that features the group moving at double-speed, turning out incredibly lively versions of some of their biggest hits, all done without any studio augmentation – which is a perfect way to hear just how fantastic the group truly was! The whole thing's wonderful all the way through, and it's a fresh addition to your treasured collection of work by Sergio.

Dreamy bossa pop from the A&M studios of the 60s – the Brasil 66 sound at its best! The style here is a perfect blend of real Brazilian influences and some of the hipper styles bubbling in the LA studio scene of the time – all locked together perfectly by Sergio Mendes, in the twin-voiced style that let Brasil 66 transform any tune they could get their hands on! There's some really great numbers here of Brazilian origin – including Joao Donato's "The Frog", Marcos Valle's "Batucada", and Gilberto Gil's "Roda" – not to mention Sergio's own "Look Around", which is an especially charming number! Other titles include "The Look Of Love", "Pradizer Adeus", and "Like A Lover". CD

Sergio MendesGreat Arrival ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1966. Used ... $9.99
One of Sergio Mendes' most dreamy albums – quite different than both his vocal work with Brasil 66, and his smaller combo sides from Brazil! There's still a strong bossa component to the record – but the setting has Sergio's piano lines laid out over larger arrangements with a good jazz component – soloing beautifully with a grace and charm he sometimes didn't have on other projects! Arrangements are by some hip American talents – Clare Fischer, Bob Florence, and Richard Hazard – and the set's filled with bright horns, lush banks of strings, and cascading rhythms – all produced with exceptional sound, so that Sergio's piano goes gliding over the top in a manner that's similar to some of the Luis Eca albums in a similar format. Tracks include "Carnaval", "Boranda", "Nana", and "Bonita". CD

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 of harpsichord too – working with a hip LA group that features Grusin on organ, Tom Scott on flute and soprano sax, and John Pisano on guitar – plus a bit of Brazilian percussion from Joao Donato and Moacir Santos! The result is a heavenly 60s groove – some slight larger backings, plus great work from the jazzy group at the core – and titles include a stunning version of "Ponteio" – plus other Brazilian groovers like "A Banda", "Veleiro", and "Tempo Feliz". There's also a few tracks of US material like "I Say a Little Prayer" and "Comin' Home Baby", done with a nice bossa groove! CD

Four (Italy), 2015. Used ... $6.99
Guitarist Max Monno pays tribute to the Sergio Mendes sound of the 60s – in case you couldn't guess from the title and cover! Yet the music here isn't just a rehash of Brasil 66 – and instead showcases on all the great styles that Mendes allowed with his experiments at the time – that freeing of bossa rhythms from their simpler constraints, the way that the voice was really unlocked in Brazilian music – to a mode that would later influence so many other global singers – and even the reworking of jazz instrumentation through strong interplay between rhythm and melody. The group features wonderful lead vocals from Francesca Leone – a singer who would really make Sergio proud – and instrumentation includes guest trumpet from Fabrizio Bosso, plus flute, piano, guitar, and lots of percussion. Titles include "Upa Neguinho", "Casa Forte", "Mas Que Nada", "Lapinha", "Going Out Of My Head", "Groovy Samba", "Roda", "O Pato", "Gene", and "Ho Ba La La". CD

A&M, 1989. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
There's a parrot on the cover, and the album's got a slightly more Brazilian feel than some of Sergio Mendes' other albums of the 80s – almost a return to the mix of soul and bossa grooves that Mendes was cutting back in the early part of the 70s! Brazilian influences abound here – not just in the rhythms and instrumentation, but also in the songwriting – which is done by Jorge Ben, Ivan Lins, Gilberto Gil, and Dori Caymmi. Vocals are also in an older Mendes mode too – not entirely the style of the Brasil 66 years, but often compressed together sweetly in a really great way. Singers include Siedah Garrett, Anna Della Espriella, Maxie Anderson, Gracinha Leporace, Angie Jaree, and others – and titles include "Surrender", "Balafon", "Cinnamon & Clove", "Nightlife", "Some Morning", "Mas Que Nada", "Sarara", "Toucan's Dance", and "The Island".

The approach here is a bit more like vintage bossa dates from Brazil – or a bit like some of the Verve bossa records too – as Sergio's core trio is at the heart of every tune, playing with a great jazzy approach – then augmented in different ways by alto and flute from Bud Shank, guitar from Rosinha De Valenca, and vocals from the lovely Wanda De Sah! Production is perfect – really in a classic Elenco Records mode – and titles include "Let Me", "Consolacao", "Tristeza Em Mim", "Muito A Vontade", "Reza", "Berimbau", and "Aquarius".

Atlantic (Japan), 1965/1999. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
No, we didn't get the name of the group wrong – this "Brasil '65" album is a live one by Sergio Mendes, recorded with Wanda De Sah and Rosinha De Valenca, in the years before he formed the "Brasil '66" group that recorded on A&M – but issued afterward by Atlantic, and given the "Brasil '65" tag in hopes of cashing in on the A&M records' popularity. Forget about all of that stuff, though, because the record's a nice batch of bossa jazz tracks – and it features some instrumentals with Sergio and a tight group, plus a few vocal tracks by the ladies. The set's got a nice groove, and is much more like Sergio's earlier bossa stuff that was on Capitol in the US, and Philips in Brazil. Tracks include "Tem Do De Mim", "Noa Noa", "Caminho De Casa", and "Arrastao". Hard to find in the original, and nice to have on reissue! CD

A&M (Japan), 1960s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sublime selection of grooves from the legendary A&M Records – and a key document of the way the label helped shape the sound of Brazilian music in the 60s! Far more than any other American imprint, A&M had a key dedication to bringing Brazilian sounds to the US – not just through work by artists like Sergio Mendes, Edu Lobo, Bossa Rio, and others – but also through the way it introduced Brazilian songs, arrangements, and instrumentation to work by other singers too! This package brings together some of the best of those moments – great music mostly from the late 60s – showing not just the presence of Brazilian music on the label, but the strong influence of bossa nova as well. Titles include "Old Devil Moon" by Bossa Rio, "Dindi" by Claudine Longet, "Fool On The Hill" by Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66, "One Note Samba" by Chris Montez, "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" by Roger Nichols, "Fly Me To The Moon" by Chris Montez, "Day By Day" by Bossa Rio, "Misty Roses" by The Sandpipers, "The Girl From Ipanema" by Chris Montez, "Up Up & Away" by Bossa Rio, "Mas Que Nada" by Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66, and "Our Day Will Come" by Roger Nichols Trio.

Essential, Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 14.99
A very groovy group who have way more to offer than the "pop" in their name might make you expect – a sweet jazzy take on bossa nova styles – definitely in the manner of Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66, but with a slightly more complicated approach as well! We'll be honest, we can't find out any information about these guys at all – but they've got a wonderfully classic vibe, and enough attention to the right sort of percussion and instrumentation to make the whole thing come off beautifully! There's a sweet organ that ties most cuts together, and a soulful trumpet as well – and although there are vocals on the set, the instrumentation often gets equal attention too. Titles include a great remake of "Rock Your Baby" – with a nice drum break at the start – plus "Promesa De Pescador", "Dingue Li Bangue", "Jesus Cristo", "Chove Chuva", "Nativa", and "Yo No Quiero Estar Solo".

There's a sparkling sound here that's strongly influenced by bossa, but which also has some sunnier 60s touches too – and Mario's arranging skills are at an all-time high on the lightly dancing rhythms of the tunes. Titles include "Candomble", "Nana", "E Nada Mais", "Keep Talking", "Once More", "Ta Por Fora", and "Morte De Um Deus De Sal". CD includes 4 bonus tracks too! CD

Polydor (Japan), Late 60s. Used ... $14.99
Groovy bossa from Sweden! The Gimmicks may not look that hip, but this is a great album of jazzed-up bossa grooves – done in a harmony style that recalls Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66, The Carnival, or some of the other great late 60s groups that were bringing a new vocal sound to the bossa. The arrangements have a very groovy feel to them – kind of in a Smallish Wonder mode – and the mixed male and female harmonies would make you feel a lot more like 1968 LA than Sweden, were it not for the fact that the language is changed on most of the tracks. Great stuff – with versions of "Roda", "The Look Of Love", "California My Way", "Going Out Of My Head", "Il Mio Mondo", and "Tim Dom Dom". CD

Thus, it's no surprise that they've been turned loose on the Verve catalog to pick out some of their favorites – tunes that the stodgy ol' reissue producers would have passed up, were it not for them! Titles include "Escapade" by Wynton Kelly, "The Fakir" by Cal Tjader, "Something Else Again" by Richie Havens, "Chove Chuva" by Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66, "Lisa" by Willie Bobo, "For Mods Only" by Chico Hamilton, "Batucada" by Walter Wanderley, "Light My Fire" by Astrud Gilberto, "Samba Triste" by Jackie & Roy, and "Do It The Hard Way" by The Jazz Renegades.

✨✧ Bossa RioAlegria! ... LP
Blue Thumb, Early 70s. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredibly groovy record – and one of two rare sides cut by Bossa Rio – a short-lived vocal group handled by Sergio Mendes! The sound here is kind of an extension of Sergio's work with Brasil 66 – but Bossa Rio have deeper chops vocally, with both male and female singers – and stretch out nicely with a funky samba sound that includes a lot of Lowry organ from Manfredo Fest! Mike Wofford handled the arrangements, and set the group up in a mix of west coast jazz and electric Brazilian rhythms that's totally great – a warm extension of the 60s bossa vocal mode, hipped up slightly for the LA scene! The set includes covers of two great Jorge Ben cuts –"Zazueira" and "Que Pena" – plus great versions of "Girl Talk", "Eleanor Rigby", "Open Your Arms", "Blackbird", and "Spinning Wheel". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Wanda de SahSoftly ... CD
Capitol/Universal (Japan), 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A lost bossa classic from Wanda De Sah – aka Wanda Sa, the wife of Edu Lobo, and a singer who worked with Sergio Mendes in his pre-Brasil 66 days! The album's got a wonderfully laidback feel – languid, yet jazzy, with the feel of some of Astrud Gilberto's best work on Verve, yet with vocals that are possibly better – thanks to Wanda's pedigree in Brazilian pop. Recordings were done in California, not Rio – and arrangements are handled by the great Jack Marshall – who's got a strong ear for keeping things interesting with a mix of strings, Latin rhythms, and Capitol pop shadings. Titles include "Aqua De Beber", "Ho Ba La La", "Sweet Happy Life", "The Dreamer", and a great version of "Aruanda". CD

✨✧ VariousFritz The Cat/Heavy Traffic ... CD
Fantasy, Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Stoner film buffs unite! This CD features 2 of the classic Fantasy soundtracks to Ralph Bakshi films – both of which are way-tough to find on wax! Fritz the Cat The funky freaky soundtrack to Ralph Bakshi's animated feature Fritz The Cat – a really messed-up little film based around the original character created by Robert Crumb! Like the movie, the album's got a very skittish kind of feel – leaping from one genre to the next with each different track – but mostly featuring some older numbers from the Fantasy catalog, plus some key newer tracks for the set that are nice and funky! Original tunes include the bad-rapping "Fritz The Cat", by Ed Bogas and The Watson Sisters – plus the instrumentals "Duke's Theme" and "Bertha's Theme" by Ray Shanklin, and "The Riot" and "Winston" by Ed Bogas. Also includes "Love Light Of Mine" by The Watson Sisters, "Black Talk" by Charles Earland, and "Mamblues" by Cal Tjader. Heavy Traffic is another soundtrack for a Ralph Bakshi feature-length cartoon – and the feel is similar to Fritz The Cat, in that the movie features some original music penned for the film, plus a fair bit of other tracks by better-known artists – all slipped into the movie as a sort of pop culture pastiche! As you might guess, we're partial to the original tracks – penned mostly by Ed Bogas, and featuring some organ and keyboards by Merl Saunders. These tunes include "Angie's Theme", "Carol's Theme", "What You Sow", "Heavy Traffic", "Cartoon Time", and "Scarborough Street Fair". Other titles include "Take Five" by Dave Brubeck, "Maybelline" by Chuck Berry, "Twist & Shout" by The Isley Brothers, and "Scarborough Fair" by Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66. 27 tracks in all – and way more fun than sneaking a joint in a midnight movie!

✨✧ Cravo E CanelaPreco De Cada Um/Asa Branca Que Nem Gilo (Japanese pressing) ... 7-inch
Production Dessinee (Japan), 1977. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Out Of Stock
Two fantastic cuts from Cravo E Canela – a Brazilian combo who take the Brasil 66 style of Sergio Mendes, and move it into even groovier, funkier territory! "Preco De Cada Um" has this soaring blend of female vocals, funky bass, and wonderful piano and keyboard lines – moving at a great clip, but never too fast – and with richer colors that really open up the tune! The flipside features a beautiful mixing of "Asa Branca" and "Que Nem Gilo" – in a tune that uses the forro energy of the original to bring a sharp edge to the jazzy changes of the vocals and instrumentation! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Beautiful pressing – sweet cover and vinyl!)

✨✧ Sergio Mendes & Brasil 77Vintage 74 ... CD
Bell/Sony (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An excellent little album that Sergio recorded in the US – with a sweet funky electric sound that's very different than his other work! At some level, the album has a feel that's almost like a hip 70s soundtrack – sporting these great arrangements by Dave Grusin that bring in a lot more funk than you might be used to hearing on one of Sergio's albums, making the whole thing groove in a marvelous way – while still holding onto some Brazilian touches in the rhythms, and that sweet two-female vocal lead style of Sergio's other work. The set includes two funky Stevie Wonder covers – "Superstition" and "Don't You Worry About a Thing" – plus versions of "This Masquerade", "Voce Abusou", and "Double Rainbow". CD
Also available Vintage 74 (Japanese pressing) ... CD 15.99
