AZIMUTH

















Three in a row from the funky 70s of Brazil.
This is the first album from 1975 by Azimuth (known as Azymuth from later records), and it's a monster batch of grooves that mixes electronics and funk, plus lots of touches of Brazilian percussion. There's loads of moody mellow keyboards and the album's an amazing slice of funky jazz that moves from the squelchy mellow grooves of "Manha" and "Caca de Conta"to the strident super funk of"Melo Dos Dois Bicudos" onto the (almost) prog rock of "Periscopio".Essential!!

I'm confused, can't match the tracks with the album info i find online. At least so far.

6 tracks vs 10. Or is this another band with a similar ST album and matching year?

Tnx!
