CD Reviews

Vintage Azymuth
George Plecas | Burleigh Waters, Qld Australia | 09/05/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"A welcome recent release from a band that's been around for around 30 yrs. The first track is a laid back jazz-pop tune set above a background of jungle sounds and atmospherics. You could just imagine yourself slowly cruising the Amazon. The Quest is underpinned by a 70's disco drumbeat,but is a vehicle for several keyboard solos from Bertrami. The third track sets us back into a laid back mood but with more light and shade for interest. Track4 (so Sad) is blue-mood funky piece.The title track(penned by Ivan Conti) has got to be the outstanding track with some great drumming and percussion in changing rhythm times. The bassist Malheiros also thrives in this format. Festiva nativa typifies their music of the last two decades with splendid piano from Bertrami. Xingo is a typical Brazillian samba which fuzes some Jazz elements. The second last track is a funky dance track. And that brings us to the last track a delicious funky cover of the Headhunters's tune from the 70's.Overall nothing to cerebral in this just a great fusion of Brazillian, Jazz, Funk and Pop.Thoroughly recommended."

"This album will be a collector's item. This album is Azymuth's 2'nd album for FAROUT. I must admit, very groovy, very into Brasilian folk rhythms. More bass and drum elements, one of the best tracks, laranjeiras, is a brilliant example how to make human bass 'n drum with a Jazz and Samba taste.
