Every time I make a new album,” states the legendary Brazilian maestro Sergio Mendes, “it’s a new musical adventure.” Over the course of a career that has amassed an astounding track record of 35-plus albums made and millions sold, Mendes has embarked on many adventures, highlighted by his early ‘60s Bossa Rio Sextet outings in Brazil, his worldwide breakthrough ...

Product Description

Brasileiro marks a radical departure from the jazzy, bossa nova style Sergio Mendes has previously explored and for which he has rightly become known. The titles literal translation, Brazilian, hints at a content that examines the roots and traditional rhythms of the country's music: this is more samba then bossa. In combining the high-energy thunder of the drums of Rio and Salvador with other regional styles including reggae, forrò and maracatu, Mendes works together with leading contemporary artists including the outstanding Carlinhos Brown. It is to his testimony that the transition has been made so easily, and in many ways this album is as imaginative and powerful as anything he has previously created. The bookend tracks, "Fanfarra (Cabua-Le-Le)" and "Fanfarra (Despedida)" bring a genuine taste of Carnival to proceedings, while the musical influences displayed on "What Is This?" stress exactly how divergent this album really is. --George Lees

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST-HAVE FOR FANS OF LATIN MUSIC 22 Jun 2008
Format:Audio CD
I cannot add any more superlatives to the ones that have already been given to this Grammy-winning album. It is a release that never falters; every cut is worthy of inclusion.

Being a forty-year fan of Sergio Mendes has given me a slightly bent bias toward him and everything that he has done. The current crop of popular Latin artists needs to give credit to this trailblazer and master musician.

I'm glad that new musicians, like are discovering Mendes's sound and bringing him again to the masses.
