Album Review: In the Key of Joy by Sergio Mendes

Very Good, Based on 1 Critic

AllMusic - 70
Based on rating 7/10

The 39th studio album from Sergio Mendes, 2019's In the Key of Joy, is a vibrant production featuring a bevy of guest performers. The album arrived during a period of renewed activity and recognition for the Brazilian pop legend who earned his first Oscar nomination in 2012 for his song "Real in Rio" off the Rio soundtrack, and who has steadily recorded in the 2010s, issuing similarly inspired albums like 2008's Encanto, 2010's Bom Tempo, and 2014's Magic. Along with being a studio album, In the Key of Joy also arrives as a companion piece to director John Scheinfeld's documentary of the same name, detailing Mendes' life and career.
