Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66Look Around ... LP
A&M, 1967. Very Good+ ... $9.99
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
(Mexican stereo pressing on A&M, with Spanish titles.)

Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66Stillness ... LP
A&M, 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $9.99
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
(Cover has some ring & edge wear.)

✨✧ Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66Fool On The Hill ... CD
A&M/Verve, 1968. Used ... Temporarily 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

Sergio MendesIn Person At El Matador/Pele/Sergio Mendes' Favorite Things ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, Late 60s/1970s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
3 different Sergio Mendes albums on 2 CDs! In Person At El Matador 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. 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! Pele is a nice soundtrack that features Sergio Mendes' score to a film that starred football great Pele, made at the height of his career! The music's got the range of sounds that you'd expect from a soundtrack – with some mellow cuts, and some more uptempo ones, but the mix is great, and the sound is nice and Braziliany, with some good electric moments. Pele sings vocals on one version of the title cut "My World Is A Ball", and Gerry Mulligan solos on another version of it. Cuts include "Big City", "Sadness of Goodbye", and "Na Bahia". Sergio Mendes' Favorite Things is a very very groovy instrumental album by one of the giants of the bossa nova era! The album has Sergio Mendes in more of a jazz setting than his Brasil '66 LPs, with lots of nice electric grooves and keyboard lines, plus some driving orchestral backing. The set includes a stunning version of "Ponteio" – plus other Brazilian groovers like "A Banda", "Veleiro", and "Tempo Feliz". There's also a few tracks of U.S. pop stuff like "I Say a Little Prayer" and "Comin' Home Baby", done with a nice bossa groove to them. Dave Grusin did the arrangements, and the sound is nice nice nice! 34 cuts in all! CD

Sergio MendesIn The Key Of Joy ... CD
Concord, 2020. New Copy ... $14.99 15.99
Back in the day, Sergio Mendes was best known for the core energy of his groups – the legendary Brasil 66 and Brasil 77 – but in the 21st Century, Sergio's also become quite a collaborator – part of a legacy that's definitely continued here on a set of tracks that features work from guests who include Common, Roge, Cali Y El Dandee, Sugar Joans, Shelea, and Buddy – as well as more familiar Brazilian talents Guinga, Hermeto Pascoal, and longtime vocalist Gracina Leporace! The style bounces along in a mix of modern R&B and older Rio elements – but there's also maybe a wider pan-Latin vision to the whole project, much more so than some of Mendes other 21st Century albums – proof that the man is alive and well, and always still working hard to build a bridge between cultures. Titles include "Love Came Between Us", "Sabor Do Rio", "Bora La", "La Noche Entera", "Samba In Heaven", "Catch The Wave", "Times Go By", "This Is It", and "Tangara". CD

Bossa RioAlegria! ... LP
Blue Thumb, Early 70s. Very Good Gatefold ... $6.99
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".

✨✧ Hagood Hardy & The MontageMontage ... LP
GRT, 1972. Very Good+ ... $11.99
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! LP, Vinyl record album

Ronald MesquitaRonald Mesquita – Bresil 72 ... CD
Barclay/Mr Bongo (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
One of the grooviest Brazilian albums you could ever hope to buy – and one that's not even from Brazil, either! This little gem was recorded in France in the early 70s – but it's got a swinging groove that's very similar to the work of Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 during the 60s – upbeat, bossa-inflected, and with a strong undercurrent of jazz! Mesquita's group is a lot like Sergio's – right down to its mix of two vocalists on the lyrics – but there's a few important differences: this group's got one male and one female singer, a lot more percussion than Sergio ever used, and an overall sound that's less pop-oriented, and much harder overall! The whole album's great – tight, driving, and lively, with some incredible production – and titles include "Balanca Pema", "Dabadeia", "Aguas De Marco", "Fechado Pra Balanco", "Zanzibar", and "O Gato".

✨✧ VariousSounds From The Verve Hi Fi – Compiled By Thievery Corporation ... CD
Verve, 1960s/1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An extremely groovy batch of tunes – compiled from the catalog of Verve (and related labels), selected to perfection by Thievery Corporation! These guys have a great reputation for crafting new grooves with a classic sound – and they've no doubt arrived at that talent after a long study of older tracks. 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 RioBossa Rio ... CD
A&M/Rev-Ola (UK), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A groovy bossa gem from the glory days of A&M Records – an ultra-hip group recorded with production by Sergio Mendes! The feel here is a lot like that of Brasil 66 – bossa rhythms, sunny CA instrumentation, and lovely female vocals – in this case sung singularly, by the lovely Gracinha Leporace – aka Mrs Mendes! Instrumentation is arguably even better than on Brasil 66 records – with wonderfully groovy organ lines from Manfredo Fest, who plays Lowrey organ instead of the usual Hammond. A really essential slice of bossa nova – and a record we'd never part with! Filled with wonderful tunes that include "Gentle Rain", "Up Up & Away", "Wave", "Do You Know The Way To San Jose", "Cacao do Sal", "Veleiro", "Saiupa", and "Nana". CD

Les Masques with Le Trio CamaraBrasilian Sound ... LP
CBS/Le Tres Jazz Club (France), Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
Groovy groovy groovy! Les Masques were a 60s vocal-oriented Brazilian combo from France, and they had a tight jazzy approach that was similar to Sergio Mendes and Brazil 66! That alone would be enough to make them #1 in our book – but they also get some excellent backing from the Trio Camara, who back the band with some nice organy riffs, and a very tight rhythm section! The whole thing's a great lost bit of Braziliana – with that crossover sound that you'll hear on the best 60s and 70s European recordings of this sort. Includes the great groover "Il Faut Tenir", which has shown up on a few compilations over the years – plus "Mais Un Jour", "Enfer", "Echo", "Un Regard .. Un Sourire", "L'Oiseau", and "Les Filles et Les Garcons". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Made In Brasil with Victor MNumero Um ... LP
Nucleus, 1975. Very Good+ ... $13.99
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! LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has some splitting on the top seam, which also has a cut corner, and a small rip near the opening edge.)
