    Neben der ausverkauften internationalen Tournee "Innocentia" im niederländischen Concertgebouw und North Sea Jazz Festival, Casa da Música (Portugal), dem berühmten Jazz-Club in Sunset Sunside in Paris, trat Mendes im Blue Note Club in New York auf Montreux Jazz Festival und wurde von den Größen Quincy Jones und Hermeto Pascoal gelobt.
