Awhile back I wrote a post about how I liked Jazz music & such.  I mentioned Sergio Mendes (the legendary Brasilian Jazz musician/composer) in my little bullet point list of Jazz artists I liked.  Since then, I have been listening to a little more Bossa Nova & Brasilian Jazz music.

More recently, I have fallen in love with the song “Mas Que Nada” (which I think roughly translates to: More Than Anything).  I first heard this song when I went to watch the animated movie “RIO” with my fiancee.  I was absolutely hooked on this song!  I had already known about Sergio Mendes before I watched this movie.  I bought my mom the album “Encanto” a few years ago while I was waiting at the Starbucks checkout line, & I was already captivated by Sergio Mendes & his Carnival-esque beats.

Here is a clip of the song “Mas Que Nada” performed live on Eartha Kitt’s Something Special 1967 show:

Here is the version of the song “Mas Que Nada” featuring the Black Eyed Peas from the RIO movie soundtrack:

I also like this song by Sergio Mendes “Waters of March“.  Somehow, I was only able to find the French version “Les Eaux de Mars“:
