A nice copy of a scarce (and pretty good) Sergio Mendes LP.
Background: Released in 1966, The Great Arrival was the eighth album by Brazilian pianist Sergio Mendes.
The hype-laden title undoubtedly refers to Sergio Mendes’ move to America two years before this album’s release, settling in Los Angeles, where this record was made. Clearly he was out to make it big in the U.S.A., for this album tries to move a bit away from Brazil by spotlighting Mendes’ jazz and pop piano against the elaborate charts of Clare Fischer, Bob Florence and Dick Hazard. …Though an encouraging step forward, Mendes’ first big strike was still several months away.
