Delightful If Not Quite Essential

Many pleasing and delightful samba beats and colorings on this greatest hits collection. Cover tunes abound for this group as its interesting to hear Beatles tunes With A Little Help From My Friends, Day Tripper, and Fool On The Hill with the soothing latin jazz touches. Mais Que Nada is a delightful original composition that is worth mentioning as is the interpretation of Pretty World.

The soft singers real gently massage my soul and the keyboards are creative whether loud or soft. These guys did not blow you away with instrumental prowess or chart with enthusiasm like other acts of the day. However, the experience is pleasant enough so that any fan of Herb Alpert or samba stylings might want to gives this compilation an extensive listen.
