5.0 out of 5 stars Anos Dourados September 16, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Sergio's latest CD is great. Gracinha's voice is still magical and the ballads in this CD all have that warm tropicalismo like feel to them. Caetano and Hermeto Pascoal are also featured on this album. One of the master's of Bossa Nova once again has made another great album-- a must have if you enjoyed Brasileiro!

4.0 out of 5 stars Brazilian samba-jazz matured for the 2000's. July 10, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Had the pleasure to see a live performance at Foxwoods several months ago, prior to NY's Bluenote engagement. The songs on this CD haven't given up the infectiousness of the Brazilian samba roots but are accentuated with great vocals and pulsating strong rythyms. His ability to craft a song's treatment makes the result look effortless. If in doubt, play the Rio de Janiero cut with some volume and bass! The Sergio market may not be large, but I hope he continues and the market may take more notice!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good CD and Clear Follow Up to Brasileiro January 22, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Oi... another I thought I reviewed but never did. Oceano was the last Sergio Mendes album (outside of a best-of) before the one he released in 2006 with the Black Eyed Peas. It was somewhat of a follow-up to Brasileiro, even though it came 4 years after that release. No need to get into the history of Sergio and his trio's, Brasil 66 or Brasil 77 groups. He's a very important producer for Brazilian music. I still remember hearing the songs from this many years ago.

I actually liked this one. It starts out with a very strong and breezy "Rio De Janeiro" where his wife, Gracinha, leads the vocals as she usually does in his more recent (1-18 years) releases. It has clear key work, nice harmonica and the end bursts into a samba. "Trilhos Urbanos" follows up, and again Gracinha's voice is the highlight but the song's got great percussion work and a neat bridge. I actually have to disagree with one reviewer's take on "Madalena"... some of my friends from the Dominican Republic actually really liked that song. It's got much more energy, tropical vibe and near merengue flow. "Puzzle of Hearts" was another song I liked, with a wonderful duet in Portuguese and English. "I can only live if it is for you"... how dramatic. Another highlight to this were the tracks featuring Hermeto Pascoal, "Capivera" and "Vale De Ribeira". They have a warm tropical feel and bounce to them, albeit crazy. "Vale De Ribeira" simply sounds like you're going on carnival rides (not Carnaval).

All in all, I liked this but have to admit, it is a little dated now. The album's heavy on keyboard work, which usually tends to do do that (date music). Also, it's more so on the 'adult contemporary' side, so it's not really something that the younger generation would've flocked to.

3.0 out of 5 stars Inconsistent in quality and concept.. June 5, 2003
By bilahn
Format:Audio CD
"Oceano" begins with a bang-- the outrageously terrific "Rio de Janeiro", a song guaranteed to catch your attention with its evocative rhythms and color, and terrific vocal in Portuguese. This is a song that really brings to mind the tropical color and passion of Rio.
Next is the atmospheric "Trilhos Urbanos", another song that brings you to a sultry oceanside balcony in Rio at sunset.
Unfortunatley things go downhill from these first two great songs. Oceano is too much a pastiche of styles, with different singers, much of it on the sentimental and sleepy side. Magdalena is probably the best of the rest, but it is too repetitious. Some of the songs verge on lounge music.
Sergio Mendes, in his various incarnations, has always been an artist who is quite variable in quality. At his best, he is very good indeed, but other times, unfortunately, he is rather forgettable. This is probably why he has always had a status that is rather hard to pin down.
Still if you can get a cheap copy of "Oceano" I would recommned it if only for the first two songs.
