fantastic jazzy funk! this is the second record by azymuth – and it’s way way better than anything they ever cut in america! it’s got a wonderful vibe that mixes brazilian fusion influences with the tight grooves of a maurice white-inspired generation – and the result still sounds amazingly great today. the record has great electric keyboards, some nice deep floating basslines and percussion, and it stands as some of the coolest, dopest stuff in this genre. with the great cuts “tarde”, “tamborim, cuica, ganza, berimbau”, “falcon love call”, and “aguia nao come mosca”. pressing on 180 gram vinyl.
