Background: Released in 1969, Ye-Me-Le was the sixth album by Sergio Mendes & Brasil ’66.
Perhaps the Sergio Mendes & Brasil ’66 sound was at last beginning to show signs of wear, for not only didn’t Ye-Me-Le produce any hits (“Wichita Lineman” reached a lowly number 95), but the album is also less enterprising and fresh-sounding than its predecessors. …But there are special moments, like the hypnotic “Masquerade” (no relation to the Leon Russell/George Benson hit), Sergio Mihanovich’s haunting “Some Time Ago,” and another winning treatment of a Beatles tune, “Norwegian Wood,” where Mendes cuts loose a killer solo on electric piano.
