Gently thawing the cockles of your icy heart strings with Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66. Stillness is the 1970s classic record from this collaboration. There are dreamy vocals, sensitive guitars and laid back percussion and strings. It's a mixture of bossa nova and samba with American folk and pop as well as arrangements of classics from both continents. Out on vinyl LP and CD from Universal Sound.

9/10 Andy Customer review, 6th September 2015

A beautiful album of dreamy, bossa infused Brazilian folk from Sergio Mendes. Many of the tracks are lovely, gentle string infused numbers ideal for lounging in the evening sun, however that's not to say it is inoffensive or lightweight. 'Viramundo' for example captures a samba melody to create a subtly funky mood. Elsewhere there is a cover of 'For what Its Worth' that lends the track a latin shuffle and groove that adds sunshine to the more contemplative lyrics.

There is a raft of incredible music to be found from this neck of the woods, its not all 'mas que nada' and 'Girl From Ipanema' - soul jazz are doing a sterling job bringing some of these to the fore, though you should also check Far Out and Mr Bongo who have been digging this rich seam for longercthan most. This would be a freat place to start though, this isn't just a Brazillian album, this is a great folk-soul album.
