Nightlife Highlights: Sergio Mendes and Brasil '66 

Sergio Mendes and Brasil '66
  • Sergio Mendes and Brasil '66

February 3. Cluttering up the boomerang-shaped coffee tables of America's hipper living rooms and bachelor pads of the 1960s were at least one or two LPs by easy listening bossa nova greats Sergio Mendes and Brasil '66, who here samba into the Ridgefield Playhouse. The group's airy, pastel-hued cocktail of light jazz and tropical adaptations of pop hits by Bacharach and the Beatles were decried as elevator music by detractors but at the same time they also smacked of something subversive ("Put this on the hi-fi and watch Aunt Gladys loosen up after a couple mai tais."). In the depths of winter, such sunny music always hits the spot. And who knows how long it will be before Mendes returns? (Bebel Gilberto breezes by February 11; Joan Jett and the Blackhearts rock February 14.) 8pm. $75. Ridgefield, Connecticut. (203) 438-5795; Ridgefieldplayhouse.org.
