CLAUDIO MEDEIROS , VICTOR M & FRIENDS - ROTATION















Claudio Madeiros for Nucleus USA from 1975.
Killer Brazilian funky fusion set on an obscure little label out of San Francisco.
Big tune on this is "Soar" but rest is just as good with that lovely bubbling clavinet sound on most of the tunes.If you like early 70s Azymuth,Donato,Valle and the like you'll love this.
Dusty Groove review(where it's now unavailable):
A fantastic batch of jazzy grooves featuring Claudio Medeiros and Victor M of the group Made In Brasil, plus other associates from the Bay Area fusion scene of the 70s! The record's got a strong mix of mellow tunes and funkier ones with touches of Brazilian jazz and CTI fusion swirled together in a San Francisco sunny mode. The set includes the incredible groover "Soar", which has nice moog bubbling through a jazzy midtempo groove and features many other great tunes like "Cachaca", "Generous", "Green Olives", "Grape Woman", and "Rotation"

Hi Bacoso, this one looks really interesting. However, I'm unable to download at present because I keep getting the message 'Low Disc Space' on my computer. Short of purchasing a brand new laptop, does anyone have an advice on what I should do.
Thanks all.

may need to "clean up" your c drive to get rid of any unwanted files and make some space. if not, you can get an external hard drive and move all your music zipfiles into to that to free up your pc's memory.

Many thanks to Richard for helping sort out the unreadable file names and tag mess.

I'm guessing that those unreadable characters were Japanese.

bacoso said...
