This is fabulous. I bought it years ago on vinyl when it first came out and replaced it with the CD. I love every second of it and can't recommend it highly enough to anyone who wants a mix of jazz and latin superbly arranged, played and sang. Buy it now if it's the only disk you buy this year.

Love this album, Brazil 66, Lani Hall, a bit of Herb what more could you want. But my favourite track is "Fool on the Hill".

I HAVE A SERGIO MENDES ALBUM FROM THE LATE 60`s . WHEN HIS BAND WAS NAMED "Sergio Mendes and Brazil 66" BUT IT`s ON VINYL AND I HAVE`nt GOT ANYTHING TO PLAY IT ON NOW. SO WHEN THIS WAS LISTED IN THE 3 C.D`s FOR £10 SECTION I THOUGHT I WOULD BUY IT TO BRING BACK OLD MEMORIES. I AM PLEASED I DID. HIS MUSIC BRINGS THE SUN OUT EVEN IF IT`s RAINING. SO MUCH OF HIS MUSIC IS USED AS BACKING TRACKS BY T.V ADVERTISERS & PROGRAM MAKERS,

THAT HIS MUSIC IS THOUGHT TO BE COOL AGAIN. THIS C.D HAS ALL HIS GREAT MUSIC ON.

JUST LISTEN TO THE FIRST TRACK `Mas Que Nada` IT`s WORTH BUYING THIS C.D JUST FOR THAT.THEN LISTEN TO HIS INTERPRETATION ON BEATLES CLASSICS LIKE `DAY TRIPPER / NORWEGIAN WOOD / FOOL ON THE HILL / WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM MY FRIENDS`WHICH HE REALLY DOES SO WELL. ITS 16 TRACKS OF SUNSHINE.

Ok then, you need cheering up after a bad day that didn't go too well? Look no further,this great CD from Sergio Mendes is sure to do the trick. Not strictly latin tunes but great tunes played in a latin way. The happy driving beat of the Bossa Nova combined with the sultry singing of Lani Hall and Brasil '66 and Sergio's lovely latin jazz piano and superb rhythm section makes for wonderful listening on the darkest of days.

Sergio Mendes is a classically trained pianist who discovered the looseness of latin jazz way back in the summer of 1965. It didn't take him long to form his own outfit after a chance meeting with trumpeter Herb Alpert who encouraged Sergio to put some tracks down with Alperts newly formed A and M Records.Jerry Moss was Alperts partner in the venture and the rest is history.

Of course the Brasil group has had many personnel changes down the years but always managed to achieve a similar sound no matter what the line up.Augmented on some tracks by orchestral accompaniment this album will give many happy hours of pleasure and may encourage you to purchase more of this groups wonderful albums. This CD is certainly a good starting point if you are not familiar with the music but one thing's for sure......great musicians playing great music is always a winner.

Happy listening friends.

I fell in love with Sergio Medes and Brasil 66 back in 1968. I bought the vinyls of Brasil 66 and 77 and played them for years, also putting them on cassette for use in the car. They've all been stored for years when we moved on to CDs, but seeing this at such a good price I had to buy it and now I'm driving the wife and grankids up the wall playing them all the time. Marvellous music and I still remember the words!
