Azymuth — Light As A Feather (with bonus tracks) ... CD 16.99

One of Azymuth's best-remembered albums from their American years on Milestone – a really killer classic that beautifully blends Brazilian and American styles of fusion! There's a simple, elegant feel to these tunes that takes off nicely from the group's previous album for Atlantic in Brazil – a pushing forward of the soulful sides of their style, but with just the right blend of quirkier elements as well – one that still keeps the edge of the early years, yet helps the group reach out with a wonderfully warm sound! Most tracks are quite spare, and without any too-smooth polishing in production – and titles include the classic "Jazz Carnival", a funky fusion classic if there ever was one – plus "Light As A Feather", "Avenida Das Manguerias", "This Exists", "Partido Alto", "Dona Olimpia", "Amazonia", and "Young Embrace". (Cover has light wear, with some splitting on the spine.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Caras E Bocas
Philips (Brazil), 1977. Near Mint- Gatefold
A wonderful album of mellow grooves – all featuring the lovely vocals of the great Gal Costa! Gal's moving into a style here that's jazzy and soulful – with backing that has a lot of warm fusiony elements, but which still puts her rich vocals right out front. In a way, the album's ...
