Description

Following on from their seminal Light As A Feather LP, Outubro (October) was originally released in 1980 and began Azymuth's run of prolific output for Milestone Records throughout the decadeFollowing on from their seminal Light As A Feather LP, Outubro (October) was originally released in 1980 and began Azymuth�s run of prolific output for Milestone Records throughout the decade. Typifying the consummate craftsmanship of the three members� performances - each with such distinct personality and together so perfectly balanced - their perfectionist attitude to sound is maintained across the production on the album, beautifully colouring the expressionist fusion of samba rhythm, jazz progression, funk attitude and psychedelic electronics. The album hosts a wonderful mix of tempos and styles, from Alex Malheiros� earth-shaking slap-bass on �Dear Limmertz�, which was to become a hit on London�s underground disco and jazz-dance club scenes alike, to the late maestro Jose Roberto Bertrami�s genial melodic Rhodes excursions on the vocoder laden, samba-jazz masterpiece �Un Amigo�, while Ivan �Mamao� Conti�s signature swing on �Maracana� exemplifies the root of Azymuth�s �samba doidoi� (crazy samba) philosophy. The two cover versions on the album consist of the title track which was originally penned by Milton Nascimento and Chick Corea�s �500 Miles High�, both of which magically reimagine the originals and further demonstrate the immense virtuosity of this cult recording.
