The legendary Brazilian composer, keyboardist and singer Sergio Mendes rose to international stardom with the sensuously supple and swinging music of his Brasil '66, the Grammy Award-winning ensemble that put its stylish touch on a wide range of pop music – from the bossa nova of Antonio Carlos Jobim to the songs of Burt Bacharach and the Beatles.
The master, Oscar-nominated musician, who has recorded 40 albums, has brought his sophisticated Brazilian sensibility to many kinds of music in recent decades, collaborating with artists as varied as Justin Timberlake and the Black Eyed Peas. He leads his current ensemble in a mix of Mendes-arranged classics and contemporary dance tunes.
