We heard new releases this program from Sergio Mendes and Mason Jennings. Sergio’s new one, Encanto, is not very different from Timeless in that he invites superstars of the American and Brazilian pop scenes to join him on some funky and tropical tracks. In the Ever showcases the strength of songwriting and topical tracks we know and love from Mason Jennings. So, not unexpected releases from either talented artist, but great nonetheless and I’m glad to share them with you. Check out what else we heard…
