Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66Stillness ... LP
A&M, 1970. Very Good Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
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

✨✧ Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66Crystal Illusions ... LP
A&M, 1969. Sealed ... $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 Nasimento's "Empty Faces", plus "Song Of No Regrets", "Salt Sea", and "Dois Dias". Nice stuff, and very groovy! LP, Vinyl record album

Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66Fool On The Hill ... LP
A&M, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $3.99
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 – 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"! LP, Vinyl record album

Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66Foursider ... CD
A&M, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $3.99
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 '66Look Around (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
A&M/Speakers Corner (Germany), 1967. Sealed (reissue)... $19.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66Equinox (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
A&M/Speakers Corner (Germany), 1967. Used (reissue)... 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"!

✨✧ Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66Herb Alpert Presents Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66 (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
A&M/Speakers Corner (Germany), 1966. Used ... Out Of Stock
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Sergio MendesSergio Mendes' Favorite Things ... LP
Atlantic, 1968. Near Mint- ... $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! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sergio Mendes & Brasil '65In Person At El Matador ... LP
Atlantic, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little live set from Sergio Mendes and his Brasil 65 group – a pre-Brasil 66 combo that features Wanda De Sah on vocals and Rosinha De Valenca on guitar! The style here is more traditionally Brazilian bossa than Sergio's later work on A&M – a fluidly jazzy groove captured with a good sense of intimacy despite the live setting – and issued by Atlantic as a nice antidote to some of the more watered-down bossa work on the US market! The vocals are wonderful – often spare and a bit more fragile than the two-voiced sound of A&M – and titles include "Tem Do De Mim", "Noa Noa", "Caminho De Casa", and "Arrastao".

Bossa RioAlegria! ... LP
Blue Thumb, Early 70s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $16.99
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".

CarnivalCarnival ... LP
Liberty, 1969. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Like Sergio Mendes and Brasil 66? Then you'll love The Carnival! The group was formed by three former members of Sergio's group, working in 1969 with stellar LA pop production from the mighty Bones Howe – all grooving in a style that's got all the best traces of the Brasil 66 sound! The Carnival only ever managed to cut this one album – but it's a sweet sweet masterpiece of bossa-styled harmony pop – with loads of light rhythms, jazzy riffing, and some incredible sunshine pop touches that seem to push the sound even farther than Sergio Mendes could have hoped! This album features a killer version of "Laia Ladaia", plus the tracks "Canto De Carnival", "Love So Fine", "Reach Out For Me", "The Word", "Walk On By", and "Turn Turn Turn". LP, Vinyl record album

GimmicksGimmicks In Acapulco ... LP
Karussell (Japan), 1971. Near Mint- ... $22.99
No doubt about it – these guys are groovy! Groovy like Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 – with a sweet male/female harmony vocal style, applied here to a mixture of bossa nova tunes and 60s pop numbers, recorded in Mexico by this Swedish combo, with a sound that would make A&M weep! There's a great selection of tunes on the package that keep things nice and fresh – fresher than Sergio Mendes, even – as the tracks run from a cover of "California Soul", to obvious numbers like "Wave" and "Mas Que Nada", to lesser-known gems like "Good Old Brandy On The Rocks", "Coco Loco Samba", "Honeymoon In Las Brisas", and "Acapulco Sunset".

Birgit LystagerBirgit Lystager ... LP
Production Dessinee (Japan), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $42.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Al MassrieenModern Egyptian Music ... CD
Habibi Funk (Germany), Early 80s. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
Modern Egyptian music, circa 1983 – served up here in a collection of recordings that initially only appeared on cassette! The leader of the group is Al Massrieen, but the music is a very collaborative affair – keyboards, upbeat rhythms, and vocals from many group members – in a style that seems to merge older Egyptian traditions with influences from late 70s funk and club – all in a way that comes across a lot better than you might expect! A few tracks are more pop-oriented, but even those use really cool percussion at points – and all the songs here have these little twists and turns that really keep things interesting. When the female singers come forth, there's almost a groove that sounds like an Egyptian take on Sergio Mendes & Brasil 77 (not 66) – and their clubby tracks at the end of the 70s. Titles include "Ebda Men Gedid", "Asef Gedan", "Mafatshi Leh", "Horreya", "West El Ghabat", and "Men Awel Deqiqa". CD

Pen Friend ClubWonderful World Of The Pen Friend Club (mono & stereo mixes) ... CD
Penpal (Japan), 2017. New Copy ... $24.99
A sing-songy Japanese group with a sound that's every bit what you'd expect from the 60s style of the cover – a group who've clearly been inspired by groups like We Five, Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66, and other perfect purveyors of the best sort of sunny sounds – so much so that the group even goes out of their way to deliver both mono and stereo mixes of the full album! Vocals are all sung by Yuka Fujimoto, both in English and Japanese – and both the instrumentation and production evoke a cool late 60s, west coast, Capitol Records sort of vibe – on titles that include "Wonderful World Of The Pen Friend Club", "Sherry She Needs Me", "Born To Be Together", "River Deep Mountain High", and "Loves Lines Angles & Rhymes".

✨✧ 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

✨✧ Hagood Hardy & The MontageMontage ... CD
GRT/Beatball (Korea), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Dreamy vocal pop from early 70s Canada – a set that owes a lot to the 60s sweetness of Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66! The Montage have an approach that's a bit more rock-based overall, but there's definitely some Sergio-like touches in the music – especially the way the two female vocalists sing together in a nicely spaced-out sort of sound – warm, but with an undercurrent of coldness – mixed in with some very groovy rhythms from Hagood Hardy on vibes, electric piano, marimba, and percussion! There's also a fair bit of bossa in the mix too – not as overtly as on Brasil 66 records, and more filtered down into a 70s sort of hipness – expanded out with wider pop influences, and some traces of Sunshine styles as well. Titles include great versions of "Cast Your Fate To The Wind", "Come Saturday Morning", "Baby I'm A Want You", "Guantanamera", "It's Too Late/I Feel The Grass Grow Under My Feet", and "If" – and the record would be right at home on A&M!

Pulsar/Beatball (Korea), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An incredibly groovy record from The Voices In Latin – a one-off studio project headed up by sound library legend Barbara Moore! The set is one of the few commercially-released albums that Moore ever did – and as you might guess from the group's name, the record's got a style that blends larger voices with Latin rhythms – kind of in a sound library take on the style of Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66! Some of the tunes here are familiar 60s pop numbers, but they're given a great new spin by Barbara and the group – and others are Moore originals, which are some of the grooviest in the bunch! Titles include "I've Walked Alone", "Busy", "Sara", "The Look Of Love", "Sunny", "Tea For Three", "Hideaway", and "Biding My Time". CD

Capitol/Universal (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... 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

Warm mellow magic from Sergio Mendes in the 70s – a great little album that's got a sweet electric feel! The set was recorded with help from Tom Scott and Bob Alcivar on arrangements, and has a sunny southern California feel that's a nice extension of Sergio's 60s work – yet which also takes his sound to a whole new level. There's still some traces of Braziliana in the mix, but there's also a lot more straight soulful pop – really working that twin female vocal lead style nicely, and wrapping it around some great tunes like "I Won't Last A Day Without You", "Hey Look At The Sun", "Love Music", "Killing Me Softly With His Song", "Where Is The Love", "Put A Little Love Away", and "Walk The Way You Talk".

Nucleus, 1975. Sealed ... $29.99
A totally sweeeeeeeet batch of Brazilian grooves – recorded in San Francisco, with a great 70s Bay Area sound! Victor M leads the group on percussion and vocals – but the real charm of the set is in its electric piano riffing, and soulful electric vibe. Most of the cuts have vocals – kind of in a Sergio Mendes 70s style, or in the mode of some of Marcos Valle's more electric work – and although the tunes are mostly familiar numbers like "Reza", "Agua De Beber", "Zazueira", "Upa Neguinho", and "Crickets Sing For Anamaria", they're done in a mode that's very fresh – kind of a bridge between 60s Brazilian interpretations, and later ones by recent groups!
