Editorial Reviews

From its emerging economy to hosting The Olympics and The World Cup -Brazil is shining on the world stage. With Brazil, Sergio Mendes -Brazil's most popular musical export- is also shining. His iconic music is featured in the upcoming major motion 3-D animated picture, Rio and on 4th April 2011 UMe will release his first career spanning retrospective Celebration: A Musical Journey. Spanning the 50 years since his debut album, this two CD collection includes his Brazil 66' classics Mas Que Nada The Fool on the Hill , 'Wichita Lineman , and Norwegian Wood, as well as The Look of Love, which he performed live on the 1968 Oscars. Celebration highlights Mendes inclusion of soul and funk into his renowned Brazilian rhythms. It continues with his Grammy award winning 80's top 10 hit Never Gonna Let You Go, before bringing Mendes up to date with his re-recording of Mas Que Nada featuring Will.i.am and the Black Eye Peas which will be featured in the upcoming animated feature Rio. The collection will also include new material from recent collaborations with Siedah Garrett and Ivet Sangalo. Listening to the collection it's clear: From the 60's to now, Mendes and his cool factor is ever present.

i thoroughly enjoyed this collection..the earlier versions feel more true to his original sound..but the remixes with guest vocalists make it easier for a newer generation to connect.

This is a wonderful CD if you are a Mendez fan. There are two CD's and both are great. I especially love the rap versions of two of his older songs.

Good Value for the Money. Comprehensive cross section of the Career of one of the Greats! This collection covers his entire career with good representation of every change and time as well as his best offerings from his albums along the way. Covers, Brazil 66, and other incarnations as well as his solo work and works with other contributing artists. Love Sergio's Latin Flavored Jazz/Pop fusion. He really is a master with vision!

I used to enjoy Sergio Mendes and Brasil '66's music when I was a kid. When I saw Sergio and his current band perform The Beatles' "The Fool On The Hill" on the A MusiCares Tribute To Paul McCartney DVD, I began looking for a suitable retrospective of Sergio Mendes music. However, I did not want to purchase the 1987 Classics Volume 18, as that had rather poor sound quality.

I'm glad I found this collection, which covers Mendes' career from 1962 to 2011. The first disc is absolutely brilliant with not a bad track on it. It includes their first hit, "Mais Que Nada," an instrumental cover of "Garota De Ipanema" (a.k.a. "The Girl From Ipanema"), "Goin" Out Of My Head," "The Look Of Love," the best version of Cole Porter's "Night And Day" ever (and that includes Sinatra's), Otis Redding's "(Sitting On) The Dock Of The Bay," Simon and Garfunkel's "Scarborough Fair," Glen Campbell's "Wichita Lineman," and two Beatles covers: the aforementioned "The Fool On The Hill" and "Norwegian Wood," which the group make into their very own, but still respect the integrity of the originals without destroying them - an absolute requirement for any successful Beatle cover version.

Disc 2, though it contains the classic ballad "Never Gonna Let You Go" and other good material, is not as strong. The recordings from the 1980s could have been made by anyone; they lack the creativity of Sergio's earlier efforts.

Since I have tickets to see Sergio Mendes on June 6, 2014 in Bethesda, Md, I wanted to get the CD of his most popular hits. The CD is fantastic, and it takes me back to the 60's when these songs first came out. Really enjoy the latin sound and beat and can't wait to see the performance next week.
