Smoke Notes

The phenomenon of legendary older musicians working with younger contemporary artists to broaden artistic and commercial possibilities had almost become its own genre by the mid-2000s.

Sergio Mendes' release in 2006, ’Timeless’ keeps that trend alive & kicking. In a full-scale collaboration with the Black Eyed Peas, Mendes updates the Brazilian pop he mastered in the 1960s by infusing it with R&B and hip-hop. The synthesis should come as no surprise. Amid the reggaeton craze of the 2000s, who better to lay down Latin-flavored tracks for MCs than Mr. Brazil 66 himself? But the real clincher here is the roster of guest stars, which includes Stevie Wonder, John Legend, Justin Timberlake, the Roots, and the aforementioned Black Eyed Peas, among many others.

The odd, yet surprisingly successful combos (Timberlake and underground MC Pharoahe Monch anyone?) mix Mendes's bossa nova and samba with equal doses mainstream pop, funky soul, and hard-edged rap, revealing the polymorphous possibilities in the master's sound, and creating an album that is certainly timely, if not timeless.

Tracks:
1. Mas Que Nada (Featuring The Black Eyed Peas)
2. That Heat (Featuring Erykah Badu & Will.I.Am Of The Black Eyed Peas)
3. Berimbau/Consolacao (Featuring Stevie Wonder & Gracinha Leporace)

5. Let Me (Featuring Jill Scott & Will.I.Am Of The Black Eyed Peas)

7. Surfboard (Featuring Will.I.Am Of The Black Eyed Peas)
8. Please Baby Don't (Featuring John Legend)
9. Samba Da Bencao (Samba Of The Blessing) (Featuring Marcelo D2)
10. Timeless (Featuring India.Arie)
11. Loose (Featuring Justin Timberlake, Pharoahe Monch & Will.I.Am Of The Black Eyed Peas)
12. Fo'-Hop (Por Tras De Bras De Pina) (Featuring Guinga & Marcelo D2)
13. Lamento (No Morro) (Featuring Maogani Quartet)
14. E Menina (Hey Girl)
15. Yes, Yes, Y' All (Featuring Black Thought Of The Roots, Chali 2na Of Jurassic 5, Debi Nova & Will.I.Am Of The Black Eyed Peas)
