Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Given his 40-year career, it’s difficult to imagine that Sergio Mendes is still able to reinvent himself and create a new sound. But the record-breaking Brazilian musician doesn’t seem to have any limits. Two years ago he came out with Timeless, which distinguished itself from his usual bossa-nova sensibilities and featured a fantastic mix of hip-hop and Latin Jazz. For Encanto, Mendes and his band, Brasil ’6--collaborating with Fergie and will.i.am (Black Eyed Peas), Natalie Cole, and Herb Alpert--have made the perfect lounge CD, which fans of Bebel Gilberto and Céu will certainly appreciate. --Ernesto Sánchez (People en Español People en Español)

Con más de 40 años de carrera, es difícil pensar que Sergio Mendes todavía tenga la capacidad de reinventarse y crear un sonido distinto. Pero pareciera que para el brasileño de mayores ventas en el mundo no hay límite. Si bien hace dos años presentó Timeless, un disco completamente distinto a su tradicional bossa-nova, con una espectacular mezcla de hip-hop y latin-jazz, en Encanto, Mendes y su banda, Brasil ’66--acompañados de la mano de Fergie y will.i.am (Black Eyed Peas), Natalie Cole, y Herb Alpert--logra el disco perfecto de "lounge," que los fans de Bebel Gilberto y Céu sabrán apreciar. --Ernesto Sánchez (People en Español People en Español)

Product Description

2008 release from the legendary Brazilian musician Sergio Mendes. Encanto is the follow-up to 2006's highly acclaimed collaboration with will.i.am called Timeless. On it, Sergio takes us even deeper into Brazil, recording all the basic tracks in Rio and Bahia, finishing up in Los Angeles. Mendes enlists several guest musicians from all over the world including Latin superstar Juanes from Colombia, multi-talented Carlinhos Brown and Vanessa da Mata from Brazil, the foremost Japanese pop group, Dreams Come True, Belgium's Zap Mama and Italian rapper Jovanotti, as well as American stars like Fergie, Ledisi, Natalie Cole, Herb Alpert and his wife, original Brasil '66 singer, Lani Hall. Encanto is classic Sergio Mendes, highlighting the maestro's ear for enticing melodies and contagious rhythms. Universal.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Step Up from "Timeless" September 18, 2008
Format:Audio CD
"Timeless", released in 2006, was a welcome return for Sergio Mendes. I hadn't really followed him much since his album a full ten years before that one titled "Oceano". He used an approach similar to the Oceano and "Brasileiro" albums of the 90's. That is, utilize the talents of some of the budding new talents of the time and put out a nice quality album. On Timeless, he produced the album with Will-I-Am of the black eyed peas, and had a similar approach but more hip-hop/R&B influenced, rather than contemporary as the older 90's albums. I think the key to enjoying this and "Timeless" is to take them as they are. A melding of different musical styles and cultures. It's not like his old music from circa' the 70's. I think some people might be surprised how big R&B and rap and hip-hop are in Brasil; at least in the cities... a lot of my friends in the interior like forro, pagode, etc. but even then like hip-hop, etc.

This one stacks up nicely. In fact, I liked this one better than "Timeless". One of my main criticisms of Timeless was that it felt like I didn't always feel enough of Sergio's influence, if that makes sense. But here you can definitely hear more of Sergio's unique sound and production work which makes it feel so Brazilian. I liked the beat to "Waters of March", sung in English by Ledisi. "Oda-Ya" was funky enough, featuring Carlinhos Brown, a super producer in Brasil whom Sergio actually featured in his old "Brasileiro" cd, and was a part of Tribalistas. For some reason the rhythm reminds me a bit of Jairzinho. I also really dug "Somewhere in the Hills", sung by Natalie Cole. An Antonio Carlos Jobim staple, she did a very nice job. "Dreamer", featuring Herb Alpert and Brasil 66 member Lani Hall was also very beautiful.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite for 2008! December 19, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD last summer, having never heard of Sergio Mendes or bossa nova...I just loved Will.i.am and was looking for something new and different to listen to...( My tastes run from everything from rauchy nasty gangsta rap to Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys) Well...this has been my year of Sergio Mendes and jazz! I love this CD more and more everytime I listen to it...it just gets better and better.
After I fell in love with Encanto...I went back and bought Timeless and some of the Brasil 66 stuff. I love it all but this is my favorite. It just makes you feel good!

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy listening, easy to like November 20, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This disc is hot, the old (Sergio Mendes) meets the new (Fergie et al) for some way cool grooves. Mr. Bossa Nova has reinvented himself for a new generation but I think this one might appeal more to those with long memories and remember Sergio Mendes & Brazill 66. I do and it has the same or a similar effect on me now as then, as being fresh , exotic danceable grooves but in a lounge sortta way. The fact that he uses popular popish artists make this an accesssible happy-go-lucky disc; sort of like Dorothy taking a stroll in the Wizard of Oz. Nothing is too threatning or dangerous on this disc, it is safe fun music for your cocktail party. It is just quirky and novel enough to make people smile and get to know one another. The often recorded(how can you miss?) "The Look of Love" is not sultry like Diana krall's The Look of Love but rather Fergie gives it that hip, whispery, soulful touch that jibes perfect with the bossa-hip-hop grooves. Several songs are straight outta the Brazilian bosa nova mode like "Lugar Comun," "Catavento" and "Acode" with it's Bebelesque vocals. "Agua de Beber" is a very cool song, featuring Will.I.am,who gets real bossa nova with a street twist. The song reminds me of something the Spaniard Gecko Turner Guapapasea! might do; he even sounds a little like him! This is another fine disc who brought us Fool on the Hill and the bossa nova to mainstream America. Highly recommended listening music for urban sophisticates.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Of My Favorites, Especially In The Summer September 29, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Have been a Sergio Mendes fan since the Brazil 66 days. This LP is no disappointment. Finely crafted, well produced and an excellent addition to Sergio's catalog. The only thing I can think of from some of the less than stellar reviews on this disc, is that they didn't give it enough listens for it to set in. It's one of his better discs and I am here to sing it's praises!
I will admit that it took more than one listen to get the "feel" for this one but, when it hit me, it hit me good.
The Summer of 2013 (the year I finally got the disc) was the Summer of Sergio Mendes! I listened to this disc almost daily along with his Brazil 66 Greatest Hits and another collection of work from the period in between this one and his Brazil 66 days but, it was this one that got everyone's attention. It WAS music to enjoy the summer pool by.
I love the input from the guest artists as well as the solid feel of what's contributed from members of the Black Eyed Peas. Fergie and Will I AM are so incredibly perfect and priceless it is infectious!
Our friends and family that came by to enjoy a BBQ, a dip in the pool, a summer party or what ever the case may be all asked "what's in the player now" when Encanto came on and it became the party/dance favorite for summer around the pool.
Now that summer is over, when I want that fresh feeling that Sergio provides, I just put in the disc, re-live a nice summer day and imagine how good it's gonna be around the pool next summer with Sergio!
