Reissue: Brazilian Octopus – Brazilian Octopus

Brazilian Octopus
Via Piccadilly Records

This, the sole album by Brazilian Octopus is a wonderful mix of bossa nova, pop, Cuban rhythms, jazz and all kinds of cool sounds and vibes that transcends any possible category. Among several top musicians, the band features Hermeto Pascoal, Cido Bianchi (former Milton Banana Trio member) and Lanny Gordin. This is such a unique album.

Each tune is a winner, no wonder originals have fetched exorbitant prices in the collectors market, and it has been hailed by connoisseurs such as Nicola Conte or Andy Votel over the years. Presented in facsimile artwork and pressed on 180g vinyl. Nearly five decades after its first release, with original 1969 copies having almost vanished off the face of Earth, now is the time for making this beauty available again.

Brazilian Octopus is available to buy from Sounds Of The Universe
