Product Review

A bridge between bossa nova and 1960s pop, Sergio Mendes music was easy listening, vaguely psychedelic pop, light jazz, and bossa nova all rolled into one. Mendes and Brasil 66 (which featured Mendes on keyboards and a revolving cast of two female vocalists, bass, guitar, drums and percussion) had a number of hits from the mid-60s to the early-1970s that are included here. Getting his professional start playing and arranging for Antonio Carlos Jobim and Joao Gilberto, Mendes typically filled out his proper albums with updated versions of popular songs written by the Brazilian masters as well as some of his own tunes ­ his tunes "Look Around" and "So Many Stars" are included. But this collection really surveys his interpretations of pop tunes of the day, some of which were never hits for Mendes. The small combos light touch and rich vocal harmonies make for pleasant if kitschy covers of hits like the Beatles "Fool On The Hill" and "Day Tripper," Burt Bacharachs "The Look Of Love," and others. ­ --Tad Hendrickson
