Far Out Recordings set to reissue Victor Assis Brasil’s 1970 LP Esperanto.

Far Out Recordings dig deep once again to unearth Esperanto, a rare 1970’s Brazilian jazz album by Victor Assis Brasil.

The release follows the recent reissues of Jose Mauro’s Obnoxius, Piri’s Voces Querem Mate? and Victor Assis Brasil’s Toca Antonio Carlos Jobim, the album will drop on the 9th of February.

Recorded in the same sessions as the Toca Antonio Carlos Jobim album, Esperanto features five original compositions except for a latin-jazz cover of Jimmy Heath’s ‘Ginger Bread Boy’. The band consists of some mercurial talents of Brazilian music: Dom Salvador (bass), Edison Machado (drums), Helio Delmiro (guitar) and Edson Lobo (Bass).

The reissue of Esperanto also features a track previously unreleased on vinyl, ‘Children’.

Take a listen to the brilliant ‘Marilia’ above and head over to the Far Out Recordings website to pre-order the album.
