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.)

✨✧ Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66Stillness ... LP
A&M, 1970. Very Good Gatefold ... $8.99
A real classic from Sergio Mendes – probably most famous for its funky bits! The record pushes past the formula of the earlier Brasil 66 albums, and goes for a more sophisticated approach that adds in some sweet electric moments, more complicated grooves, and an overall sound that's even hipper than the group's early pop for A&M. The album features an excellent version of "For What It's Worth" that has a tight drumbreak which has been sampled often, as well as a great version of Caetano Veloso's "Lost in the Paradise" which is a good translation of the song to an American idiom! Other tracks include "Viramundo", "Stillness", "Chelsea Morning", and "Sometimes In Winter". A real gem – and one of the group's most overlooked albums! LP, Vinyl record album

A&M (Japan), 1969. Used ... $8.99
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

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

✨✧ Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66Ye-Me-Le ... LP
A&M, 1969. Very Good+ ... $4.99
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?".

✨✧ Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66Foursider ... CD
A&M, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 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

Sergio MendesSergio Mendes' Favorite Things ... CD
Atlantic, 1968. Used ... $8.99
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 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

Max MonnoBrasil 2015 ... CD
Four (Italy), 2015. Used ... $4.99
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

Brazilian PopMusical Family ... CD
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".

Mario Castro NevesMario Castro Neves & Samba SA ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $9.99
Our Brazilian section just got a whole lot groovier! This 1967 album by Mario Castro-Neves and his Samba SA group is a real gem – a breezy vocal group set with an approach that's clearly influenced by the Sergio Mendes Brasil 66 style, but which also has touches of European 60s jazz – in a cool modal scatting mode that really makes the songs dance around nicely! 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

✨✧ Liz DamonLiz Damon's Orient Express – Packaged For Pleasure ... LP
Cartan Tours/Avco, Mid 70s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $9.99
The obscure second album from Liz Damon & The Orient Express – best known for their first record on White Whale, a sunny groovy classic! This one's from a few years after that record – and has a sweeter, sunnier, and (dare we say it?) trashier 70s feel – one that's probably best summed up by the cover photo of Liz in layers and layers of makeup, wearing a real Stepford Wives look on her face! The music's still pretty great, though – somewhere in between Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 and The Singers Unlimited – having the sweet male/female vocal style of the former, and the warmer 70s production of the latter. The album's also packaged for a travel company – Cartan Tours – and is filled with ads for Cartan's Hawaii package, as well as their trips to Mexico, Canada, and the Orient! Pretty great – and plenty obscure – with tunes that include "Wave", "Quando Quando Quando", "Heaven In My Heart", "Amor", "More Better Go Easy", and "Unforgettable". LP, Vinyl record album

GimmicksGimmicks ... 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

Birgit LystagerBirgit Lystager ... LP
Production Dessinee (Japan), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... About February 15, 2017 (delayed)
A very groovy singer – with a really wonderful feel! Birgit hails from Denmark, and has the icy Scandinavian jazz vocal approach of singers like Monica Zetterlund or Karin Krog – equally well suited to standard jazz material, as it is to electric oriented tunes or bossa nova, both of which appear on this set! The overall style is almost in a Sergio Mendes Brasil 66 style – light poppy touches at times, bubbling with a bit of bossa and some cool grooves laid out on organ and piano, with some occasional backing vocals on a few tracks. Groovy sunshine pop from the Baltic scene of the early 70s – with tracks that include versions of "Sunny", "Pretty World", "Fool On The Hill", "Melting Pot", "Make It With You", "Gimme Little Sign", and "Sometimes".

VariousHeavy Traffic ... LP
Fantasy, 1973. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A great Fantasy Records soundtrack – put together to accompany the Ralph Bakshi feature-length cartoon Heavy Traffic! The feel is similar to the Fritz The Cat soundtrack – 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. LP, Vinyl record album

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

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
