Brasil, Brasil, Brasil by Sergio Mendes
Papetti | Mexico City | 11/30/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Every time you play this album, the exhuberant music screams Brasil!!!
You can picture yourself walking on Ipanema beach singing Mas Que Nada.
This is your typical Sergio Mendes album (which by typical I mean superb), full of percussions, keyboards, vocal assemblies, and that ability to encapsule what Brasil is in a simple disc.
His guests for this musical treasure, are amazing; check the list:

- Sergio Mendes / Keyboards
- Carlos Vega / Drums
- Paul Jackson Jr. / Guitars
- Jeff Porcaro / Drums
- Alan Pasqua / Synthesizers
- Nathan East / Bass Guitar
- Alex Acuna / Drums
- Dori Caymmi / Acoustic Guitar
- Paulinho Da Costa / Percussions

- Kevyn Lettau / Vocals
- Robbie Buchanan / Keyboards
- Portinho / Percussions
- Jimmy Johnson / Bass Guitar
- Luis Conte / Percussions
- Joe Pizzulo / Vocals
- Vinnie Colaiuta / Drums

Don't miss out on this "now classic" album by one of the best musical embassadors that Brasil's ever given.
Classics like (Mas Que Nada),(The Island - song that inspired Barbara Streisand to also perform Ivan Lins' song), (Night Life) and (Cinnamon and Clove) aired heaviliy during the late 80's and early 90's, and the music still sounds so fresh like it was recorded this year.
