Sergio in San Francisco

My wife and I attended Sergio's matinee at SFJazz this afternoon--the first of three performances this weekend. It was a delight, and I particularly loved Gracinha and Katie Hampton's vocals on "Like a Lover" and "Going Out of My Head."

The group strikes a happy balance, making fans happy while avoiding being entirely dependent on trying to recreate the old sound or jukebox all the old hits. The level of energy is high, Sergio is an affable presence, and I like the fact that no medleys are involved, just full-length songs.

I've now seen Sergio twice and Herb and Lani twice in recent years. We're lucky that they're all performing regularly, and any Brasil 66 fan who has the chance should see both for two different takes on the group's legacy.
