Description

In 1975, Sérgio Mendes unveiled a new group that was billed as Sergio Mendes & Brasil ’77, who got off to a pleasant start with Homecooking. In contrast to the bossa nova, samba, and Brazilian pop-jazz that put Mendes on the map in the ’60s, Brasil ’77 had more of a soul/funk/quiet storm outlook. Quite clearly, Homecooking was aimed at the ’70s soul market — the album is closer to Stevie Wonder, the Emotions, or Earth, Wind & Fire than Antonio Carlos Jobim or Astrud Gilberto. Most of the tunes aren’t overly Brazilian-sounding, and the vast majority of the lyrics are in English rather than Portuguese. Even the songs that were written by well-known Brazilian composers (including João Donato‘s “Emorio” and Gilberto Gil‘s “Hey People, Hey”) are mostly or entirely in English.
