O’s Notes: Boca do Rio is: Jacob Aginsky (p), Alex Calatyud (perc), Larry De La Cruz (sax, perc), Jon Evans (b), Dan Foltz (d, perc) and Kevin Welch (vocals, g). They perform in the Bay Area with a dedication to the beauty of Brazil. The groove is a combination of samba and jazzy R&B. It is done well and feels ‘just right’ on “Sweet Seed” with Coco Finaldi adding vocal harmonies. Put on your dancing shoes for the club beats of “Pra Bahia” and “Os Outros Malandros”. Or just sit back and enjoy the performance. These guys are entertainers!
