As a 17-year-old, will.i.am fell in love with the music of Sergio Mendes after a fellow crate-digger turned him on to Equinox , Mendes' 1967 album with the Brazil 66. That appreciation led to the Black Eyed Peas leader buying all of Mendes' albums, tapping the pianist to play on the Peas' "Sexy" in 2003 and, in 2006, produce and perform on Mendes' Timeless . "Nobody knows more about my music than Will," says Mendes, now 73, whose new album Magic is his first for Sony's Okeh label.
