When A&M Records released Herb Alpert Presents SÃ©rgio Mendes and Brasil ’66, the jazzy samba sub-genre bossa nova flooded mainstream culture immediately, leaving dashes of its Rio-born flavor everywhere from the White House to the World Expo in Osaka, Japan.
Though Mendes reigned responsible for the funk-infused sound, which spurred the group’s success, I’m more intrigued by the band’s stylish female vocalists Lani Hall and Janis Hansen. Their striking attire and confidently stylish stances seem to slice straight through the fronts of these album covers. Amidst heavily saturated hues, technicolor television typefaces, and hints of ‘6os Brazilian beach culture, Hall and Hansen appear as queens among their princes’ portraits.
I encourage you to absorb their collective aura as if its your very own mod mantra–style this intriguing deserves much admiration, in the name of both fashion and music.

Love this! Currently listening to them on Rdio. <3
I collected these albums for awhile. They’re both fun to listen to and gorgeous to look at! This one is my favorite: http://tralfaz-archives.com/coverart/M/mendes.jpg
That cover is amazing! We may need to have a drool-over-album covers evening. 🙂
I love these covers! I actually collect antique vinyl, but I usually try and find ballet records. I’ll definitely have to give them a listen.
Funny thing. . .I own all of them (or at least one of my parents did and so therefore I have them now).
