Call it “funk/jazz fusion”, call it ‘samba doido’ (crazy samba), deep-in-the-groove Azymuth arrive in the UK this Sunday for five dates (with a jump over to Amsterdam in the middle). It’s their first visit here since 2010 – chronicled above. They’re re-creating the album Light as a Feather from 1979. Far Out Recordings have released a remixed and remastered edition of the album in several formats (AVAILABLE HERE)
