✨✧ AzymuthAguia Nao Come Mosca ... LP
Atlantic/Mr Bongo (UK), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.98
An incredible little record – and the set where it really all comes together for this legendary funky jazz group! Azymuth were already great on their debut, although maybe a little experimental at times – but here, they really find the soulful groove that later got them big fame on the US scene – effortlessly blending their tight jazz skills with a dose of samba soul, and turning out some wonderfully groovy music in the process! There's clearly an influence here from the best years of Earth Wind & Fire – but also more of the edge that you'd expect from the young trio – as the amazing Jose Roberto Bertrami blows us away with his wickedly sharp keyboard solos, as Alexandre Malheiros and Mamao create these beautiful rhythms that go way past anything you might have expected from a trio. The whole thing's wonderful – one of the most soulful Brazilian records of the 70s – and titles include the great cuts "Tarde", "Tamborim Cuica Ganza Berimbau", "Falcon Love Call", and "Aguia Nao Come Mosca".

AzymuthAzimuth (Linha Do Horizonte) (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Som Livre/Far Out (UK), 1975. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $22.99
One of the sweetest electric records to come from 70s Brazil – the fabulous first effort from the Azymuth trio, and work that's hardly been matched again! Although the group here have plenty of the warm keyboard touches of their more famous later work, they're also moving in territory that's a bit more abstract as well – using some noisier electronics amidst the smoother ones, to create a style that's somewhere between fusion, electric funk, and some of the more soaring Brazilian rhythms of the post-bossa years! The keyboards of Jose Roberto Bertrami are worth the price of admission alone – and include Fender Rhodes, Arp, and clavinet – plus bits of Hammond organ too! There's more than a few great breaks and samples on the set – and titles include "Brazil", "Caca De Conta", "Melo Dos Dois Bicudos", "Manha", "Periscopio", and "Montreal City".

✨✧ AzymuthAzymuth Live At The Copacabana Palace ... CD
Charly (UK), 1979. Used ... $11.99
A great live set from Azymuth – recorded in Rio in 1979, with a harder, more open feel than most of their studio work of the time! The set takes off with the intensity of a classic 70s fusion set – led by the majestic keyboards of Jose Roberto Bertrami, really kicking out here with a sound that's not nearly as restrained as on the group's studio albums for Fantasy. Aleuda joins the trio on vocals on a few cuts, and titles include "Jazz Carnival", "Partido Alto", "Light As A Feather", "Montreux", "Dona Olimpia", "Voo Sobre O Horizonte", and "Existe Isto". CD

AzymuthDemos 1973 to 1975 ... CD
Far Out (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
Amazing early work from Azymuth – rare demo recordings done at the home studio of keyboardist Jose Roberto Bertrami, in the short space before the group issued their legendary debut! The tracks here are as much jazz funk as they are the later modes that Azymuth would put forth – killer instrumentals that are really driven by great keyboard lines from Bertrami, who'd already been making music in other formats for years – and who works here on Fender Rhodes, Arp, Clavinet, Hammond, and a range of other keyboards too! The drums are fantastic, too – handled by a young Ivan Conti, who gets help on percussion from an early fourth member of the group, Ariovaldo Contesini – and as you might guess, the incredible basslines of Ivan Mamao Conti really help the whole thing groove. All material is very well-recorded – these aren't rough or unfinished tracks at all – and the whole thing should just be thought of as a first chapter for the group, right before they started putting out their famous records. Titles include "Prefacio", "Castelo", "Melo Do Cuica", "Xingo", "Laranjeiras", "Eqiupe 68", "Unknown Song For Mario Telles", "Manha", "Duro De Roer", "Quem Tem Medo", "Juntos Mais Uma Vez", and "Bateria Do Mamao".

AzymuthOutubro (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Milestone/Far Out (UK), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Wicked early work from Azymuth – one of the albums that the group recorded when they were really starting to take off on the global scene – burning strong with a soulful fusion vibe, lots of Brazilian rhythm currents, and always hitting all the right notes in their music! The sound here is still relatively spare, and sublimely reliant on the keyboards of Jose Roberto Bertrami – who plays Fender Rhodes, organ, and percussion on the set. Ivan Conti handles the main percussion, though – a great mix of tight work on the drum kit and rootsier, Airto-like elements that are totally great – and the whole thing's driven along nicely by bass and guitar from Alex Malheiros – a perfectly fused lineup that really hits their own groove on the set. Guests include Aleuda on percussion and vocals, Gordinho on surdo, and Doto on repinique – and titles include "Papasong", "Outubro", "Maracana", "Un Amigo", "Carta Pro Airto", and "Dear Limmertz".

Marcos e Sergio Paulo Valle with AzymuthO Fabuloso Fittipaldi – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Mercury/Le Vieux Renard (France), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
A totally rare gem from Marcos Valle – and one of his most unusual recordings! The album is from the soundtrack from a film about the famous Brazilian race car driver Emerson Fittipaldi – and the tracks are a very unusual mix of music by Valle with some spoken passages that might be interviews from the film. You may recognize the theme "Fittipaldi Show", as it's a wonderful groover played by Azymuth that's shown up in a number of comps over the years – and most of the rest of the tracks are played by Azymuth, too – and they have an incredible sound that's very different than the group's later work, and which sounds a lot more like Valle's work from the time. The sound is spacious and soaring, but with lots of jazzy and groovy elements – and titles include "Vinheta I", "Fittipaldi Show", "Vitoria", "Rindt", and "Acidente". LP, Vinyl record album

Marcos Valle & AzymuthBrazil By Music – Fly Cruzeiro (180 gram clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Cruzeiro/Tidal Waves, Mid 70s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $28.99
A really unique little album – one that features sounds created in collaboration between Marcos Valle and Azymuth – all done as a specialty album for an airline in Brazil! The sound is breezy and dreamy – different than some of Azymuth's earliest music, but not that far off – and inflected with the warmer touches that Valle used on his records as the 70s moved in – that almost-soundtrack style of sophistication, but still lean enough to groove! The music is rich in keyboards from Jose Roberto Bertrami – and the whole thing's got a breezy vibe that would have been perfect kicking back in a leather seat in first class, looking down at the beaches of Rio below! Titles include the "Jingle Cruzeiro" – plus versions of "Asa Branca", "Samba De Verao", "Nao Tem Solucao/Marina/Rosas", "Ate Pensei", "Pais Do Futebol", "Zazueira/Mas Que Nada", and "Wave".

Far Out (UK), 2000. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Another stunner from this legendary Brazilian fusion group! The record's a swirling blend of Brazilian rhythms, soulful keyboard work, and some very tasty modern production. Like the other Azymuth albums on Far Out, this one's got a great edge to it – kind of a spacey funky fusion sound that's very much in a 70s mode, but which also has good open ear for a modern vibe. The keyboards are excellent – way better than on many of the group's older American records – and the whole session's got a great appreciation for the sound that Azymuth can hit when they really open up. Titles include "Equipe 68", "Folgada", "Rosalie", "Castelo", "Raspa Do Tacho", and "Valsa For Us". CD

Milestone, 1984. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Warmly mellow grooves from Azymuth – a set that nicely lives up to the "Flame" in the title – and which shows the strengths the trio picked up during their years in the US! The sound here is round and soulful – a great fusion of the group's roots in the 70s Brazilian fusion scene, and some of the smoother styles of the California one – never in a way that's too soft or commercial. As usual, there's a heavy emphasis on the keyboards of Jose Roberto Bertrami – who also sings a bit in a wordless, scatting sort of way. Flora Purim joins in on vocals on the cut "The Textile Factory" – and other titles include "Tamal Vista Boulevard", "Rapa Poeira", and "Flame (O Amor E Chama)". LP, Vinyl record album

We never get enough of Jose Roberto Bertrami's vocoded vocal melodies! Sparkling Brazilian fusion, from the prolific Azymuth, with laid back grooves and light melodies, but not "lite" jazz. One of their more mellow outings, at most these tracks might approach mid-tempo, with a beautiful spaciousness throughout. Eight tracks in all, including "Tu Mi Delirio", "Broken Key", "If You'd Like To Know", Marcos Valle's "Pygmalion", the title track and "Samba Da Barra". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ AzymuthSpectrum ... LP
Milestone, 1985. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Proof that Azymuth were one of the few groups who could keep things real at a time when most of their fusion contemporaries were sounding cloying and commercial! The album's got a well-rounded sound that really shows the group's roots in the 70s, and their wonderful evolution over the years – that keyboard-heavy sound that's always warm and soulful, and never too tinny or beat-heavy. Jose Roberto Bertrami's keys come across with a 70s warmth that most groups were lacking by this time – and the backing from Alex Maheiros on bass and Ivan Conti is always very subtle, and simple too – swirled up alongside the keyboards, and mixed in with a few occasional bits of guest instrumentation – including trumpet from Marcio Montarroyos on one track, and flugelhorn from Paulinho Olivera on a few more. Titles include versions of Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On", Jobim's "Song Of The Jet", and Ivan Lins' "The Island", plus the cuts "Universal Prisoner", "Candomble", and "Areis".

✨✧ AzymuthButterfly ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2008. Used ... Out Of Stock
Always-great work from Azymuth – one of the few combos who never get stale, no matter how long they keep on grooving! The album's titled after the Herbie Hancock classic "Butterfly" – and it's put together with a sublime quality that really stretches back to the best styles of the 70s fusion generation – both for Herbie and the group! The core trio is still wonderfully in place after all these years – Jose Roberto Bertrami on Fender Rhodes and Hammond, Ivan Conti on drums and percussion, and Alex Malheiros on bass and guitar – and although there's a tiny bit of vocals on the set, they're more instrument-like, and fit in beautifully with the keyboard-driven grooves. Arthur Verocai makes a great appearance on the set on guitar, and also handles arrangements on two cuts – and Robertinho Silva plays some added percussion on the record as well. The group do a wonderful job with Herbie's "Butterfly" – then move onto some of their own great material that includes "Caititu", "Os Cara La", "Morning", "Next Summer In Rio", "New Dawn", and "Avenida Rio Branca". 10 tracks on the CD.

Warm, wonderful, and incredibly far-reaching in scope – possibly the most ambitious record cut by Azymuth in recent years – a perfect blend of jazzy fusion, Brazilian rhythms, and some of the London broken beat culture that the group have come into contact with through their label, Far Out. The sound is clean and spare – a dance between percussion and keyboards that reminds us how great Azymuth can sound when they keep things simple. A few cuts have vocals, but the overall approach is instrumental – and the record features production and programming by Roc Hunter, and was recorded by Kirk Degiorgio. Titles include "Tempo Classico", "Em Marica", "Partido Novo", "Sudade Do Doutor", "Nome Dele E Joan", "Algoado Doce", and "Rede De Espera". CD has 12 tracks in all. CD

A great set of jazzy club tunes – selected and mixed by Jazztronik – and served up in a style that seems to make the tunes resonate even more strongly together!

In fact, the record has a vibe that's a lot like the best early Azymuth music, although with vocals – hip rhythms, unusual inflections, and a great electrified version of older Brazilian styles – all topped by the warm, wonderful vocals of Mazzotti! The whole thing's wonderful – and titles include an amazing version of "Sou", a vocal take on the Azymuth tune "Agora Ou Nunca Mais", and the cuts "Em Acalanto", "Eta Samba Bom", "Bairro Negro", and the funky classic "Roda Mundo".

The best album yet from one of the hippest groups working on the French scene today – a group that really explodes with modal and spiritual energy that take us back to the 70s – but who also have a lean, focused sense of delivery that's all their own! The group's led by Florian Pellissier on piano, but is a strongly cohesive unit that also features this brilliantly bold bass work from Yoni Zelnik, plus drums from David Georgelet, saxes from Christophe Panzani, and trumpet from Yoann Loustalot – all players with just the right sense of tone and color to match Pellissier's vision! The album features a bit of guest work – vocals from Arthur H on two tracks, and Antony Joseph on one more – plus guest percussion throughout – on titles that include "Bijou Voyou Caillou", "Hibou Bleu", "Boca", "Colchiques Dans Oles Pres", "Espion", and "Colosse De Rhodes" – plus a great version of the Azymuth classic "Jazz Carnival".

Stunning work from Lucas Arruda – a record we love even more than his first – and we totally loved that one to death! The sound here is prime Brazilian 70s at its best – that magical moment when jazz, fusion, and older bossa-schooled styles all came together in a really unique blend – and also helped Brazil find its own unique sense of soul, too – a quality that really came forth in the best work from Azymuth and Marcos Valle at the end of the decade! No surprise, Lucas has Azymuth bassist Alex Malheiros and Valle collaborator Leon Ware both on board to help out with the record – but the strength of the set is clearly all Arruda's own – as his vocals are wonderful, with a soulful expression that's vaguely in the Ed Motta side of the spectrum – mixed with his own warm lines on Fender Rhodes, which totally warm things up! Production is perfect, and equally vintage – and the album's a treasure we'll be loving for years.

Fantastic stuff – and one of the greatest records ever by Brazilian keyboardist Antonio Adolfo! The album was recorded at the end of the 70s, and has a sound that's a lot like the best fusion work by Azymuth – a great mix of jazz and funk, plus more dynamic Brazilian elements – all wrapped together in a way that a rare few hybrids do this well! There's great keyboards right up front in the mix – and the backing has some tight percussion that crackles along and gives the album a heavy bottom and a great groove. The album was originally only issued on the tiny Artezanal label – but it feels like a lost gem from the classic funk years at Fantasy Records – internationally funky, far past just a Brazilian music gem. Titles include the massive break cut "Cascavel", plus other nice tracks like "Viralata", "A Marcha", "Assanhada", "Vermelhinho", and "Brincadeira Em Mi Bemol". LP, Vinyl record album

Far Out (UK), 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Really mindblowing work from legendary drummer Ivan "Mamao" Conti – a key part of Azymuth through that group's many years – and still going strong here as a solo artist on his own! The album's almost a 21st Century realization of the sound that Azymuth was going for back in the day – cascading percussion with plenty of influences from Brazilian music and jazz, often given some electric elements along the way – but always in a style that's warmly organic, and right on the groove! Conti gets help from younger Azymuth and Incognito generations – as Alex Malherios plays bass on the record and Daniel Maunick handles keyboards, more percussion, and production – all at a level that never stomps on Ivan's vision at all – and which instead makes the whole thing as rewarding as any Azymuth session we've heard over the past few decades. Most tracks are instrumental, save for some airy wordless vocals – but Thiago Martins sings lead on "Que Legal", and other titles include "Aroeira", "Bacurau", "Poison Fruit", "Jemburi", "Ecos Da Mata", "Encontro", and "Tempestades".

There's a bit of processing on Odair's vocals at a few points, in a very cool way – and titles include "O Casamento", "Que Loucura", "O Sonho Terminou", "Nunca Mais", "Fora Da Realidade", "Nao Me Venda Grilos", and "So Pra Mim Pra Mais Ninguem".

The album's got a similar feel to Azymuth's work from the same time – with some strong keyboard work from Marcos Resende, and the occasional vocal refrain to give the instrumental tracks a bit more of a soulful bottom. Titles include "Papaia", "Traveling Through Your Body", "Eastern Sunflowers", "Dress Rehearsal", and "Bossanovamente!" LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a promo stamp.)

✨✧ Ana MazzottiAna Mazzotti (Ninguem Vai Me Segurar) ... LP
Top Tape/Far Out (UK), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An amazing album of vocal Brazilian jazz and sweet electric funk – a standout classic that's forever been at the top of our stack of 70s Brazilian music! Singer Ana Mazzotti is at the head of the session – singing with this breezy style that's at once cold and warm, cool and emotive – and she's backed by a small jazz combo with some incredible moog, Arp, and organ from Jose Roberto Bertrami of Azymuth! The record's got a bucketful of groove-heavy tracks that feel like CTI meeting up with Joao Donato – and the album's a treasure that should be in the collection of any fan of 70s Brazilian funk! Titles include "Cordao", "Soul", "Bairro Negro", "Eu Sou Mai Eu", "Roda Mundo", "Sou", and "Agora Ou Nunca Mais" – plus an incredible version of "Feel Like Making Love"! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousBrazil Funk Power – Brazilian Funk & Samba Soul (5 x 7 inch box set) (2020 Record Store Day Release) ... 7-inch
Soul Jazz (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 5 x 7" ... Out Of Stock
A killer package of work from some of the funkiest years on the Brazilian music scene – that great 70s moment when the nation exploded with fresh sounds borrowed from American artists, then completely changed over by unique instrumental styles and production modes! Some of the work is a bit jazzy – second generation expressions of earlier bossa artists, getting funky – other cuts put the vocals to the forefront, and show the world that Brazil had some pretty great soul singers of its own – and as you can expect with Soul Jazz, the presentation and choice of tracks is superb. Titles include "Trinido Trincando" by Novos Baianos, "Onda" by Cassiano, "Gostava Tanto De Voce" by Tim Maia, "Taj Mahal" by Jorge Ben, "Manha" by Azymuth, "Whistle Stop" by Donato & Deodato, "Meus Filhos Meu Tesouro" by Jorge Ben, "O Comeco Da Festa" by Luiz Gonzaga Jr, and "Nova Dia" by Brazil Ritmo. 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Limited edition 7" single box set!)

✨✧ Ivan Mamao ContiPoison Fruit ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2019. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Really mindblowing work from legendary drummer Ivan "Mamao" Conti – a key part of Azymuth through that group's many years – and still going strong here as a solo artist on his own! The album's almost a 21st Century realization of the sound that Azymuth was going for back in the day – cascading percussion with plenty of influences from Brazilian music and jazz, often given some electric elements along the way – but always in a style that's warmly organic, and right on the groove! Conti gets help from younger Azymuth and Incognito generations – as Alex Malherios plays bass on the record and Daniel Maunick handles keyboards, more percussion, and production – all at a level that never stomps on Ivan's vision at all – and which instead makes the whole thing as rewarding as any Azymuth session we've heard over the past few decades. Most tracks are instrumental, save for some airy wordless vocals – but Thiago Martins sings lead on "Que Legal", and other titles include "Aroeira", "Bacurau", "Poison Fruit", "Jemburi", "Ecos Da Mata", "Encontro", and "Tempestades". CD features bonus mixes – "Ilha Da Luz (Tenderlonius rmx)", "Encontro (Glenn Astro rmx)", "Que Legal (Reginald Omas Mamode IV rmx)", "Encontro (Max Graef rmx)", and "Poison Fruit (Dokta Venom's digital dub rmx)".
