Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

SERGIO MENDES

BOM TEMPO

2010-06-06

In Portuguese Bom Tempo means a great time; there is not one place on this new disc where Sergio disappoints. Sergio is the absolute king of the summer listen and Bom Tempo is a CD that can take a permanent place in your CD player until next fall. On this disc Sergio relies less upon large name guests such as the Black Eyed Peas Will I Am and Fergie found on his last release. Instead he reinterprets Brazilian classics originally preformed by the like of the great Antonio Carlos Jobim and Gilberto Gil. There will be skeptics that will dislike some of his loose interpretations and Hip-Hop flavors found in several tracks. there is even one point in Ye-Me-Le where you can hear the sounds of Rod Stewarts "If You Think I'm Sexy", but then again this music was meant to not only be fun but very sensual as well.
