4.0 étoiles sur 5 In Between for Sergio's Career 25 septembre 2009
Par Papetti - Publié sur
Format: CD Achat vérifié
This 1971 recording (the first one as Brasil 77) is not as good as his Brasil 66 recordings, and not as good as his later Brasil 77 ones either.
Still a couple of songs were instant hits (Pais Tropical) and (Zanzibar).
One great thing about this release in particular is the Bonus Track, the Pais Tropical in Japanese, not great, but as rarity is worth the album.
His group here:
- Sergio Mendes / Piano, Vocals, Arrangements
- Laudir de Oliveira / Additional Percussions, Congas
- Claudio Slon (after spending great years with Walter Wanderley) / Drums
- Dave Grusin / Orchestration
- Tom Scott / Orchestration
- Oscar Castro-Neves / Guitars
- Sebastiao Neto / Bass
- Rubens Bassini / Percussions
- Gracinha Leporace / Vocals
- Karen Phillip / Vocals

This was Mendes' first album with Brazil '77, and the album draws on a mixture of sounds from the Brasil '66 group. There's the insanely catchy title song by Jorge Ben, almost as good as Ben's "Mais Que Nada" on the first Brasil '66 album. There's some straight ahead Brazilian jazz on "Zanzibar" with a sensational piano solo by Mendes, reminiscent of several tunes on the "Fool on the Hill" album. The excellent "Tonga" has the clean stripped down sound of "Equinox" and "Herb Alpert Presents." "After Midnight" is a slight song, but this is an exciting big band version of the Eric Clapton hit.

If you like mediocre pop songs, you'll appreciate "So Many People" and "Gone Forever" which are similar to the dross on some of the later Brasil '66 albums. They're easy on the ears but not all that interesting. If you're Sergio Mendes' mom, you might appreciate "I Know You" on which Mendes takes a solo turn, though the rest of us probably won't. As an interesting bonus, you get "Pais Tropical" in Japanese - this is a Japanese reissue after all. So that's three languages on one album.

This was the group's first album without Lani Hall, but the two lead singers are still wonderful. Highly recommended for Brasil '66 fans; but this shouldn't be your first Mendes album.

Well 1971 had arrived,the new decade was in full swing and Sergio Mendes rechristened his group the Brasil 77. This name would stay with them for much of the decade. When I first saw this album on vinyl? I was attracted to the very summery Latino-centric album art-something that often happens with my Afro-Latin ethnicity. What I didn't know at the time is that original lead singer Lani Hall had for this album been succeeded by Gracinha Leporace. And this album also welcomed the arrival of conga player Laudir de Oliveira-who would later become a member of Chicago as well. So this album represented a new beginning for the very internationally successful and talented Brazilian outfit.

The title song opens the album with a piano driven Salsa styled number with the groups trademark close,melodic vocal harmonies singing lead. "So Many People" and "Morro Velho" really give Leporace a chance to work out her sweet vocal croon on two mid-tempo ballads whereas "Zanzibar",later covered by Earth Wind & Fire and "Asa Branca" both bring out a fiery jazz-fusion styled groove showcasing the groups instrumental abilities with guest Tom Scott wailing away on sax. "Gone Forever" and "I Know You" are two powerfully melodic slow ballads while "After Midnight" is given the sprightly funky pop treatment to close everything out.

Overall this album was the ideal transition from the Brasil 66 to 77. This "new" group was a bit more in tune with the more jazz instrumental focus musically-in the same environment with Santana,Azeteca and Mandrill than in the sweetly arranged string/horn orchestrated pop style of Mendes's earlier music with his first group. Their love for close vocal harmonies as the lead voice and abstracting on pop song interpretations is still very much at the surface. And would actually remain their trademark sound. This brings the early 70's sound of Sergio Mendes as being some of the most musically magical and solidly grooving of his long and exciting musical legacy.

"She's gone, she's gone, it'll take the Devil to replace her." Yeah, I know that was *Daryl* Hall, not Lani, but that's probably what Sergio was thinking after his longtime lead vocalist who gave him his signature vocal sound, left Brasil '66 to pursue her solo career and, ultimately, become Mrs. Herb Alpert. But the ever-alluring Karen Philipp, who had been singing with Mendes since 1968, was there to pick up the slack, and while she may not have had the power and intimacy of Lani Hall, she has her own distinctive vocal charms, which are abundantly on display on the two gorgeous Paul Williams selections, "Gone Forever" (one of the most beautiful ballads Mendes has ever recorded), and the somewhat slighter "So Many People" (which boasts a great, sadly uncredited, harmonica solo). Mrs. Mendes, Gracinha Leporace, handles the Brasilian material with her typical gusto, including the beautiful Milton Nascimento penned "Morro Velho." Other standouts on this album are the fantastic vocalese and acoustic piano solo of "Zanzibar" (though, strangely, the Japanese import CD omits the "guitar tune up" that was on the original LP release--maybe they thought it was an error, I personally always loved it as a little window into the recording session), and the gutsy sax of Tom Scott on the propulsive 7/4 reworking of "After Midnight." This was a promising start to a "second phase" of Mendes' career that did not reap the market dividends that Brasil '66 did, but that nonetheless has a multitude of aural pleasures of its own to bestow upon the willing listener.

I am a huge fan of Brasil 66, but with this debut album by Brasil 77, there's just more of the greatness that is Sergio Mendes. My 2 favorite tracks on the CD are Morro Velho a song that is lead by Gracinha Leporace. Gracinha has such a powerful voice and was a great replacement for Lani Hall. The other song I like a lot is Zanzibar. This is a great jazz/fusion number featuring Mendes solo on keyboards. Zanzibar shows why Mendes is a phenomenal jazz musician.
