Sergio Mendes continues his magical ride with 'Bom Tempo', a beautiful slice of rhythmically fresh inspiration from the internationally celebrated artist.

Sergio Mendes - producer, composer, arranger pianist, band leader and cultural sage - continues his magical ride with 'Bom Tempo', a beautiful slice of rhythmically fresh inspiration from the internationally celebrated artist.

'Bom Tempo' showcases songs from the crème de la crème of Brazilian songwriters (including Antonio Carlos Jobim, Gilberto Gil, Joao Donato, Carlinhos Brown, Jorge Benjor, Milton Nascimento and Moacir Santos) and a song from his old friend Stevie Wonder, written especially for Mendes in 1977, the simmering "The Real Thing" (first recorded on Sergio Mendes and the New Brasil '77 album).

Many of Mendes' friends and long time collaborators are also present on the album - including drummers Mike Shapiro and Vinnie Colaiuta, bassists Nathan Watts and Alphonso Johnson, guitarists Paul Jackson Jr. and Kleber Jorge, percussionist Gibi, vocalist Gracinha Leporace-the bandleader's wife-and songwriter- arranger-vocalist Carlinhos Brown, who was integral to the success of the Brasileiro album).
