Mad About Records present a reissue of Mandala's self-titled album, originally released in 1976. Mandala made only one eponymous album, recorded in 1971 but released only in 1976. A very rare and influential album, featuring future members of Grupo Um (Nazário and Zeca Assumpção who also played with Hermeto and Egberto Gismonti) and Pau Brasil (Nelson Ayres) -- two seminal bands from the Brazilian instrumental scene of the '80s. The sound is a mix of jazz fusion with a Brazilian footprint -- with a dash of psychedelic atmosphere and the spiced influence of oriental music. Extremely rare private LP of '70s Brazilian jazz psych. Thick carton cover + OBI + insert.
