GUANABARA - ON THE MOVE




















Guanabara for Baystate Japan from 1984.
This one's for Greg.
Steve Sacks-Saxes,Flute;Cyro Baptiste-Percussion;Alfredo Cardim-Rhodes,Piano;Duduca Fonseca-Drums;Dennis Irwin-Bass;Claudio Roditi-Trumpet,Trombone;David Sacks-Trombone.

From the sleeve notes:
Great Music has the power to make us forget the places where we are and where we come from.We of Guanabara feel the power in the music of Charlie Parker,Antonio Carlos Jobim and the others who inspire us.At the same time there are special places which themselves have the power to move us to make music.We dedicate this record to the music and mystery of these places in both of our native countries-Brazil and America.
Dusty Groove(used copy-out of stock):
A sweet set of Brazilian jazz tunes played by a warmly soulful group that includes Claudio Roditi on trumpet, Steve Sacks on saxes, Cyro Baptista on percussion, and Alfredo Cardim on acoustic and electric piano. The feel is very nice- nicer even than the group's first album with warm acoustic jazz numbers that are sort of an update of the Brazilian jazz sound of the 70s, and which nicely avoid the pitfalls of other 80s Brazilian fusion albums.

No reissues-vinyl issue only in Japan.

thanks Bacoso. Baystate good. 1980s bad. looking forward to see which wins out! I'm trusting your review.

Wow, 1984? How late did Baystate release records? I know very little about the label, other than stumbling across the occasional LP. There's a Joe Chambers album on Baystate that I've been looking for forever-do you have that by chance?

hi there. noticed you have a link to the monkey rescue
centre. are you actually a music loving chimp?
me and my girlfriend have been very touched by our visiting the centre and on watching the dvd monkey life. i am doing a night called "go ape"
chimp mentality.

do you live near the centre?
