16 December: Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66: The Christmas Song

Published December 16, 2013

Today the Advent Calendar is taking it easy with Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66 and their version of Mel Tormé's 'The Christmas Song'. It seems this recording was originally released on an A&M Records Christmas compilation album entitled ¡Something Festive!, released in 1968.

I really love Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66, and although this arrangement perhaps isn't very Christmassy, it's still a great recording of a great song.

Listen here.
