Airto - Natural Feelings

12" LP
Real Gone Music
More Info:

First vinyl reissue in over 45 years for a long-lost, pivotal jazz fusion record! This album, originally released in 1970 on the thinly-distributed Skye label, marks Airto' s debut as a bandleader and captures the percussionist right at the time he recorded Bitches Brew with Miles Davis, and right before he joined Weather Report for their first album. Indeed, the line-up on this album reflects the fact that Airto had one foot in the NYC jazz scene and one foot in his native Brazil, as bassist Ron Carter joins Airto' s countrymen Sivuca and Hermeto Pascoal, along with Airto' s wife Flora Purim. The music' s a fascinating blend of jazz-funk and Brazilian tropes, here presented on pink, yellow, and green marbled vinyl, housed inside the original wild, Hieronymus Bosch album art
