Editorial Reviews

2010 release from producer, composer, arranger pianist, band leader and cultural sage Sergio Mendes. On Bom Tempo, Mendes presents new interpretations of Brazilian classics, proving that he is as vibrant and vital today as he was when he was leading Brasil '66 to international superstardom.

Sergio Mendes' latest recording "Bom Tempo" = good time or good weather, could have gone easily to his recording history as perhaps his best recording ever, but instead of being a Great album, IMO is just good. I have almost all his recordings, and I love Sergio's music and style, but unfortunately in this recording, he interacts rap and partido alto (the Brazilian counterpart to rap) to beautiful, almost superb tunes; and that diminishes/destroys the potential quality that was there; I don't share the opinion that in order to make these tunes updated and available to newer generations you need to use rap and nonsense stuff (watered down) like Sergio's done lately; actually, people who'd be really interested in Sergio's music and who would cherish it dearly would not be 15 or 20 year olds.

Anyway, here's the track list (not shown here in Amazon's page):
1. Emorio (with Nayanna Holley and Carlinhos Brown, using incidental tracks by Jorge Ben, Joao Donato, Tom Jobim and Gilberto Gil)
2. Maracatu Atomico (with Seu Jorge)
3. You and I (with Nayanna and Carlinhos) -the first single of this album-
4. Ye-Me-Le (with Gracinha Leporace, and incidental music of Taj Mahal by Jorge Ben
5. Magalenha (with Carlinhos)
6. Orpheus -Quiet Carnaval-
7. Pais Tropical
8. Maracatu -Nation of Love- (with Gracinha and Seu)
9. The Real Thing (with Katie Hampton)
10. Caminhos Cruzados (with Gracinha)
11. Caxanga (with Milton Nascimento)
12. So Tinha de Ser Com Voce (with Gracinha)
13. Mas Que Nada (with Black Eyed Peas) - perhaps the worst version of Mas Que Nada I've ever heard.

All in all, it's a very recommendable album if you can get passed the infamous rap and partido alto segments in the songs; most all of them played by Sergio and his several groups in the past.

In the past 4 years, Sergio Mendes has put out at least 3 albums with modern touches and flair, but not shying away from the overall quality that has made him one of the legends of the music scene. To me there are not many composers and musicians that dwell within the realm of 'genius' but Sergio Mendes is one of them. In the 00's he released albums of new material & refreshed classics with help and contributions from the talented Will-I-Am of the Black Eyed Peas. The first, "Timeless", was a successful fusion of cultures and styles which featured a wealth of popular musicians from both the US and Brasil, among other places. The follow-up, "Encanto", was every bit as exceptional to me. But on both albums there were pleas to go with the a certain sound. More specifically, to tap into the 'Brasileiro' roots of the music and focus. This is where "Bom Tempo" comes in. Re-uniting with Carlinhos Brown, who contributed quite a bit with the previous two albums and before even this (remember "Brasileiro" and "Oceano") you're given a summer soundtrack!

Whereas the last few albums had several hits and misses, this one was more consistent to me. It's the perfect soundtrack for the summer - the summer of the 2010 World Cup. Light, fantastically produced, terrific instrumentation. It starts out festive (but not tooo festive) with "Emorio", which has a pretty interesting medley of a few of the hits from some of his more recent albums (A Ra, Mas Que Nada, Surfboard, etc.) along with some good hommage mixed in (Aquelle Abraco!). "Maracatu Atomico" is given a funky update thanks in part to Mario Caldato Jr. with Seu Jorge on vocals. "You and I", featuring Carlinhos Brown and Nayanna Holley was really sweet. A song I really love is "Orpheus" and I enjoyed this rendition of it.

I am very much in agrement with Papetti. This is a winner, but just by a "heads length." I saw this as less hip hop techno-phunk, and more like his old Sergio Mendes and Brasil 66-88. However the need to "fix" the recordings was what lost me in the last two outings, but I have them anyway.
Within the collection are some props to Jobim, Nascimento and even Marcos Valle. I heard some gems here that I do not believe Mendes did before. "Orpheus" is one of these, with wonderful medley and rhtyhm. Gracinha Leporace, married to Mendes and a "Bossa Rio" fame as well, shares vocals that are simply exquisite. I also loved the duet "Maracatu" with Seu Jorge, which had sounds of the '77 & '88 styles. "Maracatu Atomico" really tore me up, and I hope to hear more of this classic sound from Serio Mendes.
In closing, this is worth a buy, and surely might lead to some widening of the repertoire to include melodic Brasilian songs Sergio might have, but did not, record before! He might seek the arrangements of Claus Ogermann, wouldn't that be a treat? The instrumentals were exciting, the rhythms are samba and the "gems" are refreshing. I loved this one.

I remember Sergio Mendes' music from my childhood. My parents and older siblings were all into the Brazilian pop jazz wave of the mid- to late-sixties and I pretty much grew up humming "Moro n'um pais tropical!" without really knowing what I was singing.

Although Sergio Mendes was always a backdrop to my life, it wasn't until a few weeks back that a friend recommended Bon Tempo. I was a little hesitant to buy a CD rehashing what I felt were oldies, but I'm very glad I listened to her. This is a jazzier, cooler, smoother, updated compilation of his classics, including touches of urban and R&B. It's a great soundtrack for dinner parties, get-togethers, driving around, and any other aspect of your life that needs some cool Brazilian pop jazz/samba to remember it by. Enjoy!
