Brazilian pianist Sergio Mendes performs in a bossa nova style crossed with jazz and funk.
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.
He toured and recorded with Cannonball Adderley and Herbie Mann and moved to the U.S. in 1964.
Sergio Mendes formed "Brasil '65" followed by his most popular group "Brasil '66."
That's how we grow.
