Azymuth

Profile:
Brazilian group started out in the early 70s as Grupo Seleção, a cover band. In 1973, they switched the name to Azymuth, inspired by a Marcos & Paulo Sérgio Valle song. Their first album, also named Azymuth, was released two years later and featured the hit "Linha do Horizonte". In 1976, they recorded other minor hits like the single "Melô da Cuíca" and "Jazz Carnival", taken from the 1979 "Light as a Feather" album. The group moved to the United States in the early 80s, producing a number of albums that never came out in Brazil, and placing their bets on a mix of samba, funk and jazz that they defined as MPB-jazz (MPB for Popular Brazilian Music).

One of the best jazz fusion funk trios to be exported out of Brazil. Their debut is a brilliant down-tempo jaunt that I imagine inspired bands like Tosca, Jazzanova, Thievery Corporation and a ton of others. Primarily a trio these guys where tight and understood texture, melody and adding a modern sound without compromising their Brazilian roots.
Azimuth(debut) and Mosca are funky synth dripping jazz with the smooth ride of a top of the line Rolls Royce rolling off the factory floor headed for the countryside. Roberto Bertrami and band where brilliant(sorry Roberto RIP so for me thats the end of Azymuth!).
