Cologne 2014 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Summerstage, Tanzbrunnen, Cologne, Germany; July 12, 2014 (broadcast on July 24, 2014). Excellent FM broadcast.

It would have been quite the perfect World Cup celebration. The samba in Brazil while Sergio Mendes had his own party in Germany. But the fates… well, they could be unkind. Or whatever. Germany historically bundled Brazil out of the World Cup in the semifinal and, on July 12 (the day of this show), Brazil went down 0-3 to The Netherlands in the play-off for third place. Not quite what the Brazilians (or the world) expected. Still, you have to hand it to the Brazilians - they sure khow to have a good time. Party on Sergio Mendes!

Thanks to Tomyoungster for sharing the show at Dime.

  2. Sergio can still get it done! Besides Mendes fans, those who like early Chicago, TJB, horns,etc. Extra zippy, extra spicy, terrific sound. Great consolation prize.

  3. There are no Sergio Mendes fans here? I know it is hard to pull yourself away from the latest darth-kardashian-butt-sickle, but don’t any of you like a great concert recording?

  5. Not a total Mendes fan here, but I was disappointed when he canceled his show in Detroit last summer. I’d'a gone just to see the legend. BigO, I’d love anything (more or less) Brazilian that you’ve got!
