The first track on their 1966 debut album Herb Alpert Presents Sergio Mendes & Brasil ’66, "Mas Que Nada" was their first single to chart, reaching #47 on the Hot 100 but #4 on the Adult Contemporary chart. The song was written by Jorge Ben in 1963 and became Mendes’s theme song. The Brazilian edition of Rolling Stone magazine voted it the fifth greatest Brazilian song, and it was inducted into the Latin Grammy Hall of Fame in 2013. Mendes later recorded this with The Black Eyed Peas; that version reached #13 on the Hot Dance Singles chart and was a Top 20 hit in most of the rest of the world.
The shorter woman is Chicago-born Lani Hall, who became Mrs. Herb Alpert in 1973. Just thought you’d like to know.
