You're mistaken here, Lucida Bright is not Lucida Grande, it is a  
serif font. But given you seem to like the weight of Computer Modern,  
you will probably find Lucida too heavy for your taste.

Beware too: it's not the Lucida Bright shipped with MS Office and  
(possibly) Mac OS X which you would want to use, but the version  
accompanied by Lucida NewMath for maths which is available from  
either TUG


or PCTeX


See here for an example of a paper typeset entirely with Lucida
