Sergio Mendes, the master arranger returns

I've been a Sergio Mendes fan from way back when, I supposed Brazil '66. Sergio is feeling revitalised these days with will.i.am of Black Eyed Peas knocking on his door and collaborating with him. His Timeless album was a real comeback and this year, he's released Enchanto. He's gone back to his roots in Brazil, updated the beats and Jobim's pieces aren't stuck in a 60's time warp anymore. He's even got Fergie doing a rap upbeat (Bacharach) Look of Love. Thanks to him, I've discovered Jovanotti and Serenata Rap.
