Still one of my favorite albums

March 8, 2015

One of my favorite kitchen “toys” is a CD and mp3 player mounted under the cabinet. I can prepare meals or wash dishes and enjoy listening to music on tap. This afternoon, I was rolling meatballs and reveling in the sun pouring into my kitchen windows while listening to one of my favorite albums of all time. It’s CRYSTAL ILLUSIONS, by Sergio Mendes and Brasil ’66.

I first heard the album when I was in sixth grade…and loved every track on it.  But the song that blew me away…and still does…is the title track: “Crystal Illusions.” It’s an  eight minute masterpiece that still sends shivers down my spine with its complex rhythms, variations in tempo, and crescendo ending. Whenever I hear it, I am in Ear Heaven!

Hear it for yourself…and let me know if you like it, too.
