Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66Stillness ... LP
A&M/Soul Jazz (UK), 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99
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

✨✧ Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66Herb Alpert Presents Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66 ... CD
A&M, 1966. Used ... Temporarily 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". CD

A&M, 1968. Used ... 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 '66Fool On The Hill ... CD
A&M/Verve, 1968. Used ... Out Of Stock
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

Max MonnoBrasil 2015 ... CD
Four (Italy), 2015. New Copy ... $13.99
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

Wanda de SahSoftly ... LP
Capitol, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Mario Castro NevesMario Castro Neves & Samba SA ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... About July 6, 2016
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

✨✧ Elia Y ElizabethLa Onda De Elia Y Elizabeth ... CD
Vampi Soul (Spain), Early 70s. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very groovy work from this Columbian duo – two female singers who work with some surprisingly cool arrangements that are often a mix of Sunshine Pop and subtle funk – a bit like Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 at their best! Arranger Jimmy Salcedo handled the backings, and they've got this sublime appeal that really sends home the sweet duet vocals in the lead – with kind a jaunty, sing-song groove on most numbers – and a sweetness that's right up there with the best late 60s work on A&M Records in LA! Titles include "Libre", "Pesadilla", "Soy Una Nube", "Descripcion", "Alegria", "Ponte Bajo El Sol", "Mis 32 Dientes", "Buscandonos", and "Cae La Lluvia". CD

✨✧ Sergio MendesBrasil '65 – Introducing The Voice Of Wanda De Sah ... LP
Capitol, 1965. Used (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
That's Brasil 65, not Brasil 66 – a distinction that marks a key early stage for the great Sergio Mendes – heard here on one of his first albums to mix together bossa jazz and vocals! 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".

✨✧ Sergio MendesGreat Arrival ... LP
Atlantic, 1966. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sergio MendesSwinger From Rio – Sergio Mendes Favorites ... CD
Wrasse (UK), 1960s/Mid 80s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Groovy groovy stuff – and a sweet little collection of Sergio's greatest work with his groups Brasil 66 and Brasil 88! The format of the ensemble was an instant hit – with 2 female voices harmonizing in the lead, bossa rhythms bubbling under the bottom, and plenty of sweet jazzy work on the keyboards from Sergio himself. The set brings together 24 tracks in all – mostly from the group's glory days at the end of the 60s, plus a few more overlooked gems from their mid 80s return to traditional bossa rhythms. The whole thing works wonderfully as a groovy bossa party from the very first note – and delightfully trips its way through tunes that include "Wave", "Pais Tropical", "Chove Chuva", "Mas Que Nada", "Never Gonna Let You Go", "Like A Lover", "The Frog", "Bim Bom", "Trilhos Urbanos", "Puzzle Of Hearts", and "Pretty World".

✨✧ Jumping JacquesSugar & Spice ... CD
Petra (Italy), 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A very cool group that's as groovy as their name! The Jumping Jacques were a 60s French vocal group who took elements of other French groups – like The Swingle Singers or Les Double Six – and worked in a mode that was very mod, and very 60s! The tunes on the set sparkle with inventive vocal pyrotechnics – dipping bass parts, floating soprano lines, skipping scatting tenor and alto bits – all coming together in a lovely blend of male and female vocals, dancing lightly with all the charm of Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66. Most tracks are non-verbal – in that the vocals are working in more of a scatting instrumental mode, jazzily grooving on a set of original tunes by leader Jacques Hendrix. Very cool, and very much in the mode of mid 60s Michel Legrand soundtracks, The Gimmicks, and other bits of European grooviness! Titles include "Let Them Eat Cake", "Gossip & Chatter", "Someday We'll Know", "Somehow I Feel I Must Be Dreaming", "Offbeat Fugue", and "Love Me Now". CD

✨✧ GimmicksGimmicks In Acapulco ... LP
Karussell (Japan), 1971. Used ... Out Of Stock
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".
