Sergio Mendes' musical influence covers over five decades. The pianist and composer of bossanova and Latin jazz has released 39 albums, and he's currently working on his 40th. The 76-year-old Brazilian icon doesn't let his age get in the way of touring or creating new music. Mendes spoke with NBCSanDiego -  "It's a good place to return to," Mendes said. "You know, we travel a lot all over the world. I like the weather and it's where I got started at A&M Records. The music and the movies, I like it. There is no perfect city.  Mendes plays Aug. 6 at the Embarcadero Marina Park South with the San Diego Symphony.  I'm looking forward to our show in San Diego," Mendes continued. "I love outdoor concerts! We're going to do the show and come back ... We have touring next week, and I'm making a new record and a documentary" he said.
