Timeless (Music - Sergio Mendes)

The crossover king of ’60s Brazilian pop meets will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas, the crossover king of ’00s hip-hop. It’s less compelling than Sergio Mendes’ rootsy ’92 comeback, Brasileiro. But as an urbane soundtrack for sucking venti lattes, the Starbucks-sponsored Timeless, a set of gentle samba-jazz-rap, is a pleasant surprise, with cameos by Q-Tip, John Legend, and Jill Scott, plus a Brazilian MC (Marcelo D2) who deserves more play.
