Album Review

Perhaps the Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66 sound was at last beginning to show signs of wear, for not only didn't Ye-Me-Le produce any hits ("Wichita Lineman" reached a lowly number 95), but the album is also less enterprising and fresh-sounding than its predecessors. There is a surprising shortage of Brazilian material, which was always Mendes' most valuable contribution in the long run, and more reliance upon routine covers of pop/rock standards like "Easy to Be Hard" and "What the World Needs Now." But there are special moments, like the hypnotic "Masquerade" (no relation to the Leon Russell/George Benson hit), Sergio Mihanovich's haunting "Some Time Ago," and another winning treatment of a Beatles tune, "Norwegian Wood," where Mendes cuts loose a killer solo on electric piano (believe it or not, the 45 rpm single version features more of that solo than the LP). ~ Richard S. Ginell, Rovi

Comfort food for the ears

I'm old enough to have enjoyed Brasil 66 when they first came out. At a time that the radio was dominated by Motown, Acid Rock and the British Invasion, they were an island of cool breezes. Sergio Mendes' jazzy latin keyboards covered with the sexy vocals of Lani Hall and Karen Phillip created the perfect music for relaxing. This is not considered their best album as there is more pop than their earlier albums, but it holds up very well. Listen to this one then go to Equinox, Fool on a Hill and my favorite Look Around.

A Must Buy...

Whoever keeps writing these not so cool editorials about Sergio's album needs to stop hatin'. This cd is classic. It has all the right elements to make a good album. You can tell Sergio is serious about his work. I love the whole cd.
