Be sure to note Saturday 11 July as your last AB date in this jam-packed season. That’s the Flemish Feast Day, so you’ll be in Brussels anyway. Or you’re Brazilian? Or you like a sultry evening out? Then we have Brazilian superstar Sérgio Mendes for you (with his Brazil ’66? ’77? ’86? We’ve lost count.)
This is the creator of the fantastically timeless Mas Que Nada, probably familiar to you in the version by/with Black Eyed Peas or many other remixes?
Apparently it all started under impulse of that other legend, Antonio Carlos Jobim. His trademark? Bossa nova with shots of funk and jazz, up to and including cheerful music hall entertainment like his contribution to the Rio-soundtrack or a resolute ballade like Never Gonna Let You Go.
There must have been more than 50 releases by now, with a Grammy even – for his Brasileiro in ’92!?
Festive just last year in the OLT Rivierenhof, now it’ll be your warmest Saturday evening this summer in the AB Box! Wanna bet?
