Azymuth Reissuing Seminal Album ‘Outubro’
Legendary Brazilian jazz and proto funk fusionists Azymuth are re-issuing 'Outubro' on heavyweight vinyl in June. 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 decade. Typifying the bands consummate craftsmanship, their perfectionist attitude to sound is demostrated with an expressionist fusion of samba rhythm, jazz progression, funk attitude and psychedelic electronics. The album features 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. The band are also currently back in the studio working on new material and embark on a European tour at the end of the year.
Azymuth – Outubro is released by Far Out Recordings on 24th June 2016 and can be pre-ordered HERE.
