Far Out Recordings - Mazzotti, Ana - S/T LP

Article number: FARO 213LP
Quantity: 1
Far Out Recordings present an official reissue of Ana Mazzotti's self-titled album, originally released in 1977. An artist as imaginative and unique as Ana Mazzotti doesn't come around often. Dubbed a "super-musician" by fellow Brazilian virtuoso Hermeto Pascoal, Mazzotti's short but rich musical career culminated in just two studio albums. Outside circles of Brazilian funk aficionados, these two gems of spellbinding samba-jazz, lysergic funk, and trippy bossa have remained relatively obscure. In 1977, Mazzotti took her debut album back to the studio, releasing the album with a new running order and new ethereal cover art, ostensibly another crack at commercial success following the small scale of the independently funded first release. With intimately re-recorded vocals, and the bonus of gorgeous horn arrangements and a new track: the carnivalesque "Eta, Samba Bom", replacing Roberta Flack's hit "Feel Like Making Love", the album delivers Mazzotti's refreshingly cool musical style even more effortlessly, while retaining the all magical energy of her debut. A cult Brazilian treasure.
