Far Out Reissues The '74 Debut of Brazilian Band Azymuth, New Music by Joyce Moreno
Far Out Reissues The '74 Debut of Brazilian Band Azymuth, New Music by Joyce Moreno


"One of the sweetest electric records to come from 70s Brazil – the fabulous first effort from the Azymuth trio, and work that's hardly been matched again! Although the group here have plenty of the warm keyboard touches of their more famous later work, they're also moving in territory that's a bit more abstract as well – using some noisier electronics amidst the smoother ones, to create a style that's somewhere between fusion, electric funk, and some of the more soaring Brazilian rhythms of the post-bossa years! The keyboards of Jose Roberto Bertrami are worth the price of admission alone – and include Fender Rhodes, Arp, and clavinet – plus bits of Hammond organ too! There's more than a few great breaks and samples on the set – and titles include "Brazil", "Caca De Conta", "Melo Dos Dois Bicudos", "Manha", "Periscopio", and "Montreal City". (40th Anniversary edition.)" - Dusty Groove



"Raiz (meaning Roots) marks and celebrates fifty years of Joyce's imperative involvement in Brazil's rich musical heritage: paying tribute to some of the beautiful Brazilian standards she was listening to around the time she first stepped foot in a recording studio back in 1964 at the tender age of 15. Joyce's overwhelming talent and enduring grace shine as bright as ever on this landmark record.

The album is a powerfully nostalgic master class in Joyce's inimitable style and her stunning vocals still hold the intimacy and raw talent of a teenage girl's first recording, but with the prowess and distinction that comes with an astounding half a century career."
