Sergio Mendes is the best

16 May

I seem to get more into the bossa nova beat with each passing day. Blame it on my beautiful tropical surroundings here on Siesta Key. My fave artist in this genre has got to be Sergio Mendes and Brasil 66. Great rhythms, superb vocals by Lani Hall (the future Mrs. Herb Alpert), and flawless taste in cover tunes. Hard to go wrong with Lennon and McCartney. Mendes went to that well many a time. Check out this YouTube clip and dig those groovy 60s threads. The dude introducing the performance is right out of Austin Powers. Just one thing, Sergio — we need more cowbell, please.
