2012 release. Far Out Recordings present a reissue of Azymuth's Light As A Feather, originally released in 1979. Four decades on and Azymuth have reached legendary status amongst fans worldwide and across the music industry thanks to the trio's pioneering blend of traditional Brazilian jazz and proto funk fusion from the early '70s right through to the present day. In 1979, the band's first Milestone Records release, Light As A Feather quickly became one of the best-selling LPs of the year. Featuring the worldwide disco/fusion hit single "Jazz Carnival" and going on to sell more than half a million copies internationally, the album stayed in the UK Top 20 for eight straight weeks. An incredibly well thought out album both in pace, song selection and musicality, Light As A Feather marked a maturing of the band as they began to rightfully utilize the studio as an instrument itself, embracing numerous mixing and recording techniques not yet common for the time as well as pioneering the use of the Big Muff and Dolby System to great effect. The end result is an album that endures to this day as a jazz funk masterpiece. Far Out Recordings present this seminal recording remixed and remastered from the original tapes. Featuring previously unreleased tracks and remixes from house stalwarts Theo Parrish, Ashley Beedle, Mark E and Yam Who?, this definitive edition of Azymuth's breakthrough LP is a must-have for connoisseurs and an invaluable introduction to the Azymuth sound for the uninitiated.
