Not As Stellar as his A&M output, but good latin jazz/pop
Sergio Mendes has always been a brilliant arranger. This is evident on this release. Bridges, Waters Of March and That's Enough For Me, enticed me to buy this back then. I can always find genius in one of Sergio's releases although lately his fascination with blending hip hop and latin rhythms is tedious and, to me, uninspired.
Light Latin Jazz
I remember buying this album after years of listening to old Sergio Mendes songs. On a car drive recently "The Look of Love" came on the radio and my friend commented on the women's voice being so sensual, and I said to him I listened to alot of Sergio Mendes back in day, and remembered I knew this album note for note and word for word. Needless to say I had to download it the next morning, what great memories.
Growing Up with the Love songs of Sergio Mendes
By DJ Darkshadow
The sounds of this music are what life brings to mind; thoughts of love, heartache, the joy of living in a time when things were earlier, and falling in love as a teenager was so sweet. Sergio Mendes's Brazilian sound and words of love are a must to hear. Specially " Never gonna let you go" from another album and "Life Goes On" from this one.
