Product Overview

Sergio Mendes is one of the most enduring artists to hail from musically and culturally rich Brazil. His signature blending of Brazilian music with American pop - as epitomized by his Brazil '66 band and such mega-hits as "Mas Que Nada" - have made him one of the most popular and beloved Brazilian artists of all time. Time and time again, Mendes has proven that creative innovation and musical accessibility needn't be mutually exclusive. Rather, they can blend artfully in a celebratory musical style that invites everyone to the party. Speaking of innovation and inclusiveness, if there's anyone knows how make music that will get a party started it's Black Eyed Peas's refreshingly eclectic mastermind/rapper/producer Will.i.am. Here, at Sergio's party, the list of invited guests is A-list all the way: Will.i.am (as producer and performer), Black Eyed Peas, Q-Tip, Stevie Wonder, Jill Scott, John Legend, Erykah Badu, Justin Timberlake, Pharoahe Monch, Chali 2na, Black Thought (of The Roots), Marcelo D2, and others. Melding Sergio Mendes's classic, infectious mix of Brazilian bossa nova and samba rhythms, jazz, and pop music with the fresh-as-tomorrow, modern hip-hop production flavor of Will.i.am, this constantly grooving mix of classic and modern sounds is - in a word - Timeless.

Artist Bio
Sergio MendesSergio Mendes is the most internationally successful Brazilian artist of all time. From the mid 1960's to the late ?70's, Mendes established his legend by taking numerous albums and singles, such as ?Brasil 66", ?Mas Que Nada,? and ?The Look of Love", to the top of the pop charts.Sergio Mendes has been recording since 1961, and he was playing the legendary NYC jazz club, Birdland, with his band by 1962. After signing to A&M Records in 1966, he immediately became the biggest Brazilian artist of the decade - which is really saying something when you consider that it was also the decade of the bossa nova and the huge hit, ?Girl From Ipanema,? both phenomenons. Sort of a Brazilian counterpart to A&M label head Herb Alpert?s own Tijuana Brass, Mendes? Brasil ?66 featuring two of the sexiest, most beautiful female vocalist of the era, including Lain Hall (who later married Herb Alpert) - reached the top of the Billboard singles charts with smashes like ?The Look of Love? (which immediately became a perennial standard upon release), covers of ?Scarborough Fair", and ?The Fool on the Hill", and, probably their signature song, ?Mas Que Nada.? Mendes? albums kept charting throughout the ?70s. In 1983, he scored one of the biggest hits of his career with the amazing ?Never Going to Let You Go,? which reached the top of the AC, Pop and Black Singles charts. In 1993 Mendes won a Grammy Award for his album Brasileiro.Mendes? music is so representative of his native Brazil, in fact, that the aforementioned ?Mas Que Nada", his first hit, has become synonymous with the country throughout the world. You?d almost have to be a hermit to have never heard the track...and to not immediately think of Brazil when you do. So it?s only fitting that a new version of the song should be the song Sergio and Will agreed upon to kickoff Timeless.
