In Ruy Castro's book "Bossa Nova", he states: In 1960, [Armando] Pittigliani, [of Philips Records] had invited Sergio Mendes to cut a disc at his recording company--a dance record. Mendes had resisted: he wanted to make a jazz record. Pittigliani managed to persuade him to change his mind, and Dance Moderno was made, but Mendes styled the arrangements with so many complicated, jazzy innovations that nobody could dance to it."
