Right now, in the Burbank studios of NBC's "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno," Andrea Echeverri should be experiencing a bad case of stage fright. She should look pale, maybe sweat a little. She should be making the sign of the cross and looking at her bandmates for moral support.

The last time Colombian rock group Aterciopelados played at J.C. Fandango in Anaheim--the steady haven for Pan American bands in Orange County--singer Andrea Echeverri threw herself off the stage into the crowd. Fans held her above their heads like the hallowed diva, the "florecita rockera" (little rock blossom), she is for most Spanish-speaking rockers.

*** 1/2 Aterciopelados, "Caribe Atomico," BMG. This record of bossa nova cloaked in velvety electronica finds the Colombian rock en espan~ol band trimmed down to its two key members: singer Andrea Echeverri and bassist Hector Buitrago. What surprises here is the growth shown by Aterciopelados in the two years since the release of their last album. The songs brim with ambiguous melodic lines and oblique loops and samples, with Echeverri's voice floating hypnotically over the quiet soundscapes.

Various Artists "Sounds Eclectico" (KCRW/Nacional Records) * * * * THIS disc of Latino-themed sessions from the "Morning Becomes Eclectic" show on KCRW-FM (89.9) could serve as a cool primer to Latin Alternative music and its many permutations -- from the lounge-rock of Los Amigos Invisibles and the haunting acoustic pop of Jorge Drexler to L.A. favorites Los Lobos and Ozomatli. But the collection is simply indispensable for serious Latin rock fans.

Think of this record as the kind of vulnerable love letter a man might write to the object of his affection without expecting anything in return. The man in question is British record producer and salsa aficionado Richard Blair. The recipient is Colombia and its bewitching music scene.

Never underestimate the positive effects of motherhood on a passionate Latina chanteuse. That was a possible reaction after witnessing Aterciopelados' powerhouse performance Thursday at the Palace, the veteran Colombian group's first L.A. concert since singer Andrea Echeverri gave birth to a baby girl last year.

The scene Sunday night during the "Rockinvasion '97" festival at the Universal Amphitheatre was reminiscent of the almost frightening aggression of a '70s punk rock concert. As the body-slamming in the mosh pit sometimes neared alarming proportions, the music itself--provided by four of rock en espan~ol's biggest names--got angrier and angrier, hammering the crowd into submission. Unfortunately, the music seemed as dated as the '70s scene.

Thanks in large part to the excellence of the Colombian band Aterciopelados, Saturday's rock en espan~ol festival at the Greek Theatre was a glowing display of how much the genre of Latin rock has matured in the last couple of years. There were no duds in the lineup, and the stylistic diversity and proficiency of the bands involved was frequently exhilarating.
