On a sweltering Friday night at the Echoplex, Sergio Dias led his band mates, Os Mutantes, on multiple musical excursions through rock & roll, samba, and bossa nova, with a bit of Kurt Weill thrown in for good measure. Delivering a rousing set that was exciting, fiery and continuously pleasing, Baptista demonstrated his guitar virtuosity with flashes of references to his early musical icons including George Harrison and The Ventures’ Noke Edwards while marking out his own sonic turf, getting tones of unbelievable beauty, both delicate and powerful, out of his Super Nova Kier.
