ANTONIO ADOLFO - VIRALATA
Massive slab of Brazilian funky fusion by Antonio Adolfo on the Artezanal label from 1979.Dusty Groove have this to say about it:
Fantastic stuff -- and one of the greatest records ever by Brazilian keyboardist Antono 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. 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 sweet 70s jazz funk vibe. 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. Includes the massive break cut "Cascavel".
Ripped at 320 from the Kuarup reissue cd which is being reissued for the second time this month.The vinyl is bloody hard to find and has a different cover with a dog and cat on it.And here is that cover thanks to jazz neko in Okinawa-Cheers!
