Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Janis S. Hansen is an American singer, producer and writer. Hansen joined Lani Hall as one of the singers in the group S rgio Mendes and Brasil '66. She is the voice in "The Look of Love" (which hit the charts six months after she left the group!). Leading off their first album for A&M, S rgio Mendes and Brasil '66's explosive cover of Jorge Ben Jor's "Mas Que Nada" (which roughly translates to, "It's nothing") became their first hit. Hall (who was double-tracked on the album) and Hansen (who joined when Herb Alpert hired the group to open for the Tijuana Brass road tour) learned the lyrics phonetically, but no one needed to understand what they were singing - the upbeat rhythm and lively vocal harmonies were enough to hook American listeners.show more
