A joyful celebration of Sergio Mendes who remains as vital and relevant today as when he exploded on the scene with his group Brasil '66. The documentary was written and directed by John Scheinfeld.
In the Key of Joy melds the classic Brazilian, jazz and pop sounds with stunningly contemporary inspirations that make the album sound at once utterly timeless and wholly of the moment.
"This album is all about joy and celebration," Sergio Mendes says. "Im very curious, and I love to work with different people from different cultures, different countries, different generations and different styles."
"Sergio Mendes is a visionary," added The U.S. vs. John Lennon director Scheinfeld. "He has consistently expanded his musical horizons, incorporating new and different sounds to keep his music fresh and unique. His life is an exceptional blend of magical encounters, spontaneity and serendipity which, for me, makes him an irresistible subject for a film." - deadline.com
"In 1966, rock and soul dominated American pop music charts. But there was room for the infectiously swinging "Mas Que Nada"--the first international hit song in Portuguese. If Stan Getz and Joao Gilberto opened the door with "The Girl From Ipanema," Sergio Mendes put an authentic Brazilian band, Brazil 66, into entertainment's top tiers."" - artsmeme.com
