“The César Mateus Latin Jazz Group at La Vè Lee. Guitarist, composer, arranger César Andrés Mateus presented his Latin Jazz ensemble at La Vè Lee in Studio City in February.The group combines influences from Spain, France, Brazil, the Afro-Cuban tradition, and also adds American Jazz to the mix. The band played very well together and immediately put the club into a very festive mood. Robert Fernandez, Richie Garcia, and Brent Fischer are a formidable rhythm section and combined with Frank Petrilli's warmth and Italianate lyricism, Mateus' authentic Spanish stylings & strong swing, and Brad Rabuchins's, soulful, and inventive skills, the group creates a colorful, exciting, full, highly varied, and lively textured sound! It was a very entertaining concert of superb, ethnic jazz and I strongly recommend you go check out the group for yourself!”
