[from a Brick’s Picks in the LA Weekly]
It might just be easier to head over to Vitello’s where we are surprised as hell to see Katia Moraes & Sambaguru playing Friday. In fact, if you love Brazilian music this is a must. The band smokes no matter what style, so tight, so limber. And she is a world class Brazilian vocalist who’ll remind you eerily at times of Elis Regina. She’s has more stage presence, charisma and enthusiasm than maybe anybody in town. We have to wonder how the nice white people in their little chairs at Vitello’s are going to handle just sitting there once she and her band get moving. They’ll be wriggling over their pasta and then realize it and stop. And then start wriggling again. Make reservations now.
