Description by OLDIES.com:
Bossa Nova music owes much of its mid-'60s popularity to pianist/composer/bandleader Sergio Mendes. Mendes created some of the smoothest and sexiest music of the '60s. World-class jazz musicians such as Art Farmer, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Phil Woods and Hubert Laws are featured session players on these releases.
