In 1965, Sergio Mendes and his trio conducted their first out-of-Brazil experiment: They recorded in L.A. for the first time in what proved to be their first major move into the U.S. market and their embrace of the new bossa nova sound. Accompanying the Mendes band were then-great vocalist Wanda de Sah and guitarist Rosinha de Valenca. This is deeply swinging bossa; it is crisp and pops out at the listener in every conceivable way. It features exotic and pioneering rhythmic work, smooth accessibility, and sophisticated melodies, many of which were written by the hottest talents in Brazil, such as Marcos Valle ("Samba de Vero" [aka "So Nice"]), Baden Powell and Vincius de Moraes ("Berimbau"), Joo Donato ("Muito a Vontade"), Ed Lobo ("Reza"), and of course Antonio Carlos Jobim ("One Note Samba" and "She's a Carioca"). Also adding to the jazzed-out nature of the new bossa flavor was Bud Shank blowing alto on "So Nice" and other cuts, which had its lyric -- -as did "One Note Samba" and a few others -- translated into English. But the appeal of Shank's appeal with this band cannot be overrated. Shank took the shimmering mist that Getz contributed to bossa nova and punched it up and gave it an edge and some raw emotion. This stands with Mendes' best work from Brazil and is truly one of his American highlights. Thanks.
