Product Description

Product Description

Repromotion of Azymuth’s best selling album for Far Out, in light of their forthcoming new studio album BRAZILIAN SOUL (due October 2004). Covering a range of styles, with jazzy interludes and soothing Bossa Novas giving way to 70s space-age funk and traditional Brazilian sambas, PARTIDO NOVO was their fifth album for Far Out and without doubt their best to date on the label. They added a special chilled touch along with plenty of gorgeous melodies and vocals. PARTIDO NOVO translates as 'broken' or 'off-beat' and accordingly tracks feature a dirtier, heavier sound with a funky 70s soundtrack vibe as well as the usual samba magic with a mellow wistful summery twist.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brazilian Jazz, Funk and Bossa. 12 Dec 2011
Format:Audio CD
This is a nice mixture of Brazilian styles, from a trio who have been around for a long time now. We get a sample of all the elements that go to make up contemporary Brazilian music.

Some tracks are very much pure Jazz - instrumentals with very nice, technically-brilliant solos from Alex Malheiros on bass - whose tone throughout is exemplary. Bassy - yet crisp and well-defined - fluid and funky.

Jose Roberto Bertrami shares the writing with Malheiros and again contributes very nice Electric Piano solos in a Jazz fusion style, in the manner of Herbie Hancock.

Other tracks like "Rede de Espera" are pure Bossa Nova - with strummed acoustic guitar and light percussion, backing breathy vocals in a Jobim-like style.

Stand-out track of the album is the title number : Partido Novo - which is a ten minute dancefloor filler. It has choppy rhythm guitar a killer beat and very funky bass - along with a chanted chorus. Definitely one for the old school 12" single in the nightclub!

Those who are looking for gentle Bossas and whispered vocals beware - this is mostly in Jazz Funk Territory and vocals are few and far-between. But if you are a fan of funky bass, this is a "must-listen" album. There is also a "retro" feel - with the use of synth sounds not heard since the 70s and 'Disco', which might put some listeners off. But just listen to the title track first and you will be hooked!

Another consistently good album from this group, found at a ridiculous price, new. This music is joyful and sensitive, and they always compose and play it so well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Partido Novo, Novo Beautiful 8 Sep 2006
By Papetti - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is Azymuth's 5th CD with British label FarOut, and a great one. There's been so many attributes from Azymtuh, praised throught their other CDs, that is not necessary to do so again on this review;

I just want to point out that here you have a perefect example of the dual rhythmic tendency of Azymuth, shown since their first CD back in 1975. The relaxed Brazilian Jazz tunes (like: Tempo Classico, Rede de Espera, Algodao Doce) and the Funk/Samba Jazz they are used to please us with (Partido Novo, Duro de Roer, Em Marica, Nome Dele E Joan).

After "Pieces of Ipanema", I like this CD the best from their "new phase".

If you love Azymuth and Brazilian Jazz, you owe this to your collection before it becomes extint and OOP.
