Brazilian pianist Sergio Mendes was born in Niterói, Brazil on February 11, 1941.
His original hopes of becoming a classical pianist were upstaged by his growing interest in jazz.
In the late-1950s Sergio started playing nightclubs just as bossa nova was emerging and has cited Antonio Carlos Jobim as a mentor.
Sergio toured and recorded with Cannonball Adderley and Herbie Mann and moved to the U.S. in 1964.
He became renowned for performing in a bossa nova style crossed with jazz and funk.
Sergio Mendes formed "Brasil '65" followed by his most popular group "Brasil '66".
