||Arthur Verocai CD (1972) |
Arthur Verocai discography This super rare recording of producer/arranger/guitarist Verocai's 1972 self-titled album will appeal to fans of the folksy soul and lo-fi electronic experimentations of American artists like Shuggie Otis or the funky orchestration of producer Charles Stepney (Rotary Connection, EWF) as well as the Brazilian artists Tim Maia and Jorge Ben. This unique recording has funk flavorings, a touch of folk, jazz style soloing, 20 piece string arrangements, the blending of electronics and keyboards with organic sounds, and superb soundtrack style music. Luv N' Haight. 2003.
Arthur Verocai's long-lost solo LP straddles the continents to fuse Brazilian tropicalia with American funk, yielding a shimmering, dreamlike mosaic of sound that both celebrates and advances the creative spirit. Employing a dizzyingly lush 20-piece string section, stiletto-sharp bursts of brass, and electric piano melodies that twinkle like stars, Verocai's heady productions draw on folk, jazz, and pop traditions from both sides of the equator to make music that is both immediately familiar and quite unlike anything else you've ever experienced. While its sun-kissed arrangements and insistent rhythms clearly evoke its Brazilian origins, Arthur Verocai nevertheless seems to exist somewhere far outside of space and time. ~ Jason Ankeny

||Butterfly CD (2008) |
Arthur Verocai CD discography Brazilian trio Azymuth had been blending forward-thinking post-bop, funk, and samba for 35 years before 2008's BUTTERFLY was released, and the album stands as a testament to the group's time-honed mastery of their sound. The album opens with a cover of Herbie Hancock's "Butterfly" and moves through 10 tunes that veer between fiercely bouncing funk grooves and cool-toned samba rhythms, with both styles executed so seamlessly it seems they've always gone together. On paper it sounds like BUTTERFLY looks to the past, but the sheer popping energy of the album keeps it remarkably fresh, vital, and primed for repeat play.
