The Brazilian jazz-rock band, Azymuth, is noted for its infectious blend of bossa nova melodies, hot samba rhythms, a splash of funk, and a dash of rock and roll. On Black Sun's reissue of Outubro, it proves to be a winning combination. This spirited ensemble tackles everything from the Flora Purim/Stanley Clarke classic, Light As A Feather (live version), to the electric energy of 500 Miles High, made famous by Chick Corea, to a host of spicy originals by Azymuth leader Jose Roberto Bertrami.Throughout Outubro, the musicians travel a fine line between technical innovation and the acoustic fury of their Brazilian heritage. Each member of this multi-faceted trio plays a vast array of South American percussion instruments with passion and precision. Synthesizers, vocoders, guitars, and electric bass add fuel to the fire, making it virtually impossible to sit still while listening to the recording. This music is irresistible; it makes you want to get up and dance. Black Sun's new version of the album also includes six additional cuts recorded live at Rio de Janeiro's Copacabana Palace, illustrating why Azymuth's early concert tours of the United States in the late 70s solidified the band's recording career.
Awesome Brazilian Rhythms and Brazilian Funky Jazz !!!!!

(5 out of 5 stars)
"The Editorial Review has actually said it all about this fantastic group and album; I'm just adding my tiny contribution to an immense project. This is one of Azymuth's first albums back in 79-80 and still sounds as fresh, imaginative and skilfull as any contemporary album in the same category. The best cuts are: Dear Limmertz, Un Amigo (A Friend), Partido Alto (High Game), and Fly Over the Horizon. If you like Brazilian rhythmic music and Funky Jazz, this is without a doubt a perfect album for you.!!!"
