Sergio Mendes Bossa Nova Samba Celebration
North Shore Center for Performing Arts
9501 Skokie Blvd., Skokie, IL 60077
One common thread weaves throughout the staggeringly diverse tapestry of music that Sergio Mendes has created over his remarkable six-decade career: the spirit of joy. From his pioneering contributions to the foundations of Bossa Nova alongside the likes of Antonio Carlos Jobim, through the era-defining Latin-pop sound of his iconic group brasil ’66; his scintillating collaborations with jazz legends like cannonball Addereley and Herbie Mann to his chart-topping adult contemporary smash Never Gonna Let You Go on through his 21st-century reinvention with the Black-Eyed Peas and John Legend or his Oscar®-nominated theme song from the animated hit Rio, an infectious spirit of joy pervades everything Mendes has ushered into the ears of listeners.
