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