Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66Equinox ... CD
A&M (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... About May 8, 2019 (delayed)
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 (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... About May 8, 2019 (delayed)
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 Mendes & Brasil '66Herb Alpert Presents Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66 ... LP
A&M, 1966. Very Good- ... $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". LP, Vinyl record album

Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66Look Around ... CD
A&M (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... About May 8, 2019 (delayed)
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 Mendes & Brasil 66Stillness ... CD
A&M (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... About May 8, 2019 (delayed)
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! CD

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".

A&M, Late 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

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".

CarnivalCarnival ... LP
Liberty, 1969. Very Good ... $2.99
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

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".

✨✧ Lani HallSundown Lady ... LP
A&M, 1972. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The beautiful first solo album by Lani Hall – recorded after years of work with Sergio Mendes in the Brasil 66 group – and done in a style that certainly reflects her great vocals with that ensemble, yet which also expands her sound tremendously! The set was arranged and produced by Herb Alpert in a spare, almost folksy style that still has some sweet LA touches – and the album's worth it alone for the leadoff cut – a version of Lesley Duncan's "Love Song", done in a gently grooving mode that's got a real folk-funk feel! The set's also got a great version of "We Could Be Flying" – and other tracks include "Ocean Song", "Vincent", "Come Down In Time", and "You". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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

✨✧ GimmicksBrasilian Samba ... LP
Omega (Sweden), 1970. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
The warmth of Brazil meets the cool breeze of Sweden – and the result is an album that's as groovy as groovy can be! The Swedish combo The Gimmicks perform a set of tunes that's very much in the Sergio Mendes/Brasil 66 mode – harmony vocals over the top of bossa arrangements, all sparkling with a sweet 60s finish! The tunes are great – and include favorites like "Look Around", "Roda", "The Joker", "Walk On By", "Chove Chuva", and "Look Of Love", as well as less-performed gems like "Boink", "California My Way", and "Bom Bom Bay". The album sits perfectly next to your A&M classics – and it's a heck of a lot rarer too! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Birgit LystagerBirgit Lystager ... LP
RCA (Denmark), 1970. Sealed ... Out Of Stock
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".

Made In Brasil with Victor MNumero Um ... LP
Nucleus, 1975. Near Mint- ... $19.99
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.)
