Grazyna Auguscik & Paulinho Garcia at Katerina's June 24th

A Polish Diva and a Brazilian guitarist will grace Katerina's on Thursday June 24th.


razyna comes from Poland and sings in Portuguese, English and scats with Chicago Brasileiro Paulinho Garcia. This is a beautiful recording of vocal duets and acoustic guitar with some light percussion overdubs from Paulinho (he was once a percussionist in Brazil). The program consists of well-known Brazilian standards like Voce, A Ra, Bridges, Agua de Beber and So Dance Samba among others. My personal favorite is their treatment of Sting's haunting Fragile, a tune that is destined to become a standard.
