The Vinyl Vault kicks off 2023 with some Brazilian jazz and the band Azymuth and their 1982 album “Cascades” released on the Milestone record label. This was the band’s seventh album out of about 30 they released.
Vinyl Vault is sponsored by Vinyl Me, Please
As usual, the core band is a trio with Jose Roberto Bertrami on keyboards, percussion and some vocals; Alex Malheiros on bass, acoustic guitar and percussion and Ivan Conti on drums, percussion and some vocals. And, as with other Azymuth albums, this one features guest appearances by several other Brazilian musicians on various instruments, but primarily percussion. Since the entire band plays percussion (at least sometimes) and they recruit additional percussionists, the album is heavy on the rhythm, but that’s only natural since this is, after all, a Brazilian band.
Tune in for Azymuth on the next Vinyl Vault on Tuesday, January 3, at 8:30 pm on KUVO JAZZ.
