Sergio Mendes/Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66: Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66

Album Notes

This self-titled 10-track set, the debut album by Sergio Mendes and his Brasil '66 ensemble, establishes the template for the group's popular sound, with its mix of lush late-1960s pop and bossa nova. Although the band wouldn't achieve massive success until '68, tracks such as the lively, percussive "Mas Que Nada" and the enthusiastic treatment of the Beatles' "Day Tripper" feature all of Brasil 66's trademarks, most notably Mendes's spry keyboard lines and the bold, expressive vocals of Lani Hall, which stood in sharp contrast to the lighter Astrud/Joao Gilberto singing approach of the era.
