One final slice of #jazzfridays as we shift to Italy for an excellent piano jazz trio album from 1969. Reissued by the awesome folks behind Schema Records a few years ago. Our favorite tracks here are the slower numbers A Part Of Myself and Remember Coltrane.
Keeping it on a South American tip on this #jazzfridays with a masterpiece by Argentinean Gato Barbieri. This album is amazing, but what else would you expect with such a great lineup that includes Lonnie Liston Smith and Ron Carter, with Bob Thiele at the controls. Check the opening track Tupac Amaru for some serious vibes.
#jazzfridays travels to Brasil for a wonderful slice of jazzed up bossa and MPB courtesy of Zimbo Trio. One of Brasil’s most famous acts, they’ve been active for over 45 years and recorded at least 51 albums. This is their self titled debut from 1964. Every instrument, every note is played with so much passion and energy. DO LISTEN!

One last #jazzfridays selection from guest Jazzwhat Ever today. The Pyramids is a band that sounds like its origins are in Africa, but it actually comes out of Ohio. They mix jazz (free, bop, and fusion) with powerful funk grooves and elements of African styles. My favorite track is the 18 minute jam “Nsorama”. A true inspirational space jazz track with influences from Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders.
