His record company called me and said he wanted to meet me, so he came to my house with all the old Brasil '66 records — he even had The Swinger from Rio — and told me how much he liked Brazilian music. Then he invited me to play on his album Elephunk. After that, I had the idea to bring him in to coproduce some of the Brazilian classics and we did Timeless, which became a big, big success all over the world. We had a hit with "Mais Que Nada" again 40 years later.
