In the wide open decade of the 60s when all restrictions on what popular music should sound like came tumbling down like the walls of Jericho any enterprising musician that had a novel or exotic slant to offer was given fair consideration by the public. In North America anything that sported a rhythm imported from regions south of the border was especially welcome and artists like Sergio Mendes from Brazil were quick to seize upon that opportunity while the door leading to mass acceptance was standing open. Mentored in his home country during the early stages of his career by Antonio Carlos Jobim, Sergio was invited to play keyboards on recordings by the likes of Herbie Mann and Cannonball Adderley before he made the bold move and relocated to the U.S. in 1964. Soon after that he formed his own combo, wisely put two pretty female singers out in front and began to find success by producing Bossa Nova versions of well-known hit singles. Their sexy rendition of Burt Bacharach and Hal David’s “The Look of Love” rose to #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 and their imaginative take on the Beatles’ “Fool on the Hill” topped out at #6, making Sergio Mendes and Brazil ’66 a hot commodity on the airwaves and a regular act on every variety television show of that era. But, after a few years, the fickle populace eventually lost interest in their unwavering shtick as the 70s loomed dead ahead and “Stillness” turned out to be the last album they would record under that self-dating moniker.

The disc opens with a mysterious atmosphere that leads to the title song, a sort of airy, floating combination of folk and jazz. Lani Hall’s voice is enticing due to her delicate tone and silky smoothness but the tune itself is rather weak and pretentious. “Righteous Life” is next and it’s a soft rock number that’s quite pedestrian and the group’s overall performance on the track is rather uninspired. There’s only so much they could do with two chords, though, so I won’t be too rough on them. They attach an up-tempo Latin beat to Joni Mitchell’s perky “Chelsea Morning” and it keeps it from sounding like just another sped-up folk ditty. Unfortunately, Lani and her compatriot Karen Philipp approach it as if they were doing standard studio work for union scale wages and it comes off lacking any amount of sincerity. “Cancao Do Nosso Amor (Far Away Today)” is a lush Brazilian ballad in which Mendes warbles the lyrics softly in his native tongue. It’s nicely done but it only makes me nod off. The first song that comes down the pike with anything resembling spirit is the instrumental “Viramundo.” The energetic drum and percussion track is uplifting and takes you on a fun ride. Lani and Karen’s unison vocals also go a long way in stimulating the otherwise repetitive chord progression.

“Lost in Paradise” is another fluffy pop/rock ditty possessing a South American jazz flavor but the only use I can think of for the cut is in the role of barely-audible dinner music. The principal reason for my purchasing this round slab of black vinyl in the first place follows, their cover of Stephen Still’s “For What It’s Worth.” I must have heard it on the radio because none of my musically hip friends would’ve recommended a record by this bunch if they were in their usual snobbish frame of mind. Yet even today it remains one of the more interesting versions of this iconic tune you’ll ever chance to hear. It’s a case of the ensemble’s eclectic instrumentation and foreign point of view adding a cool vibe to its very simple but catchy melody line. (I’m willing to bet that Mr. Stills likes it a lot.) “Sometimes in Winter” is an overly sappy ballad that, to the band’s credit, contains a few mild surprises in the arrangement but not enough to make it stand out. “Celebration of the Sunrise” is an engaging Brazilian jazz instrumental that has a lot of potential but, at only 1:45 in duration, it doesn’t last long enough to matter much. The album ends with a short, bookend reprise of “Stillness” that is entirely too predictable and old hat to be effective.

Despite repeated attempts at making magic happen again with many different chart-topping songs (“Scarborough Fair” and “Wichita Lineman” are good examples), their routine of injecting a Bossa Nova attitude into instantly-recognizable hits finally went stale and out of style and Sergio Mendes and Brazil ’66 were out of business as the 70s started up. In retrospect they played a significant role in the ascendancy of the genre called light jazz and AOR programming in general and Sergio went on to build a respectable career for himself as one of the most popular Brazilian artists to ever migrate north of the equator. I admire anyone who achieves his goals and realizes his dreams as Mendes did but if you’re looking for exciting Latin jazz or hot Bossa Nova to sink your teeth into this isn’t necessarily where you want to look.

Sergio Mendes who hails from Brazil was a classically trained pianist but jazz got him and with his music primarily being a mix of Bossa Nova and Samba from his home country he went on to create some of the most unforgettable music from the 1960,s. Sergio had been around a bit before he finally recorded "Herb Alpert Presents Sergio Mendes and Brasil '66" which went platinum and made him one of the most famous musicians till this day to come from Brazil. The previous two albums he recorded were with "Brasil 65" and they went nowhere. Sergio replaced "Wanda da Sa" from Brazil on vocals with "Lani Hall" from Chicago before he signed to "Herb Alpert's" A & M records and recorded the album with a mixture of songwriters for the tunes."Jorge Ben","Antonio Carlos Jobim","Baden Powell","Joao Mello" and all Brazillian but also "Lennon McCartney","Mancini" with covers of a Pop and a Theatre tune as well, being "Going Out of My Head" and "The Joker". The band is a real mix with "Lani Hall' and "Janis Hansen" providing vocals, Sergio is keyboards,vocals as well as doing all the arrangements,"Bob Matthews" is bass, vocals,"Jose Soares", percussion and vocals,"Joao Plama" is doing drums and there is an unknown contrubution on trombone for the song "Agua de Beber".

The first one "Mas Que Nada" was the hit from the album which was written by "Jorge Ben" in 1963 and is given that "Mendes" Bossa treatment with the vocals being a mixture of both male and female for the backing with Lani doing the lead across a great Bossa Nova rythmn. This would become Sergio's signature tune and one he still plays today and even has done a remake recently with "The Black Eye Peas".The original on this album is still the best but perhaps this could also be the way the tracks just blend within this album as the following "One Note Samba/Spanish Flea" which follows just keeps that sunny feel right on coming."The Joker" is third and some lovely keyboards from Sergio provides part of the intro and with Lani doing the lead vocals over one great rythmn with superb support from the backing vocals which was such an important part of the Mendes sound. Things do not drop off one bit with "Going Out of My Head" which was originally recorded by "Little Anthony and the Imperials" and really is just one of those timeless pop songs but still right there in the sixties and for me this is the definite version of the song which has been covered by countless other muscians throughout the years. Sergio's keyboards are just sublime throughout the entire album."Day Tripper" by "The Beatles" is just as good but do not fear we are still getting those great Brazillian numbers with "Tim Dom Dom","Agua De Beber",'O Pato", and "Berimau" all done beautifully. "Slow Hot Wind" the "Henry Mancini" tune is the slowest but still a great Bossa feel is present with lovely airy vocals by the girls.

This album was the sound of the sixties and one that was heard all over the world and it really does have one beautiful summer feel that will always take you back to that time with "Drive Ins" and Convertables.Timeless stuff which was produced by "Herb Alpert" and arranged by "Segio Mendes". One other note is "Lani Hall" would marry Herb Alpert in 1973 and they are still married today and happy.
