5.0 out of 5 stars A Jazz Fusion Classic!! November 27, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This album should be in everyone's collection who loves jazz fusion. "Telecommunication" set the standard and raised the bar in terms of quality and excellence. The tracks "May I have this dance?" and the haunting "House I lived in" gives the CD life. But their popular jazz anthem, "Last Summer in Rio" is what puts this CD over the top. A great CD through and through!!

5.0 out of 5 stars the best rhythm section in the world !!! December 8, 2002
Format:Audio CD
The combination of Alex Malheiros (bass)& Ivan Conti (drums)is just magic! This is a nice blend of Bossa Nova & Jazz and yes the formula works. "Estreito de Taruma" is as funky as a song can get while "Last summer in Rio" is your one way ticket to Copacabana beach. JR Bertrami changes lovely from piano to organ (another miscellaneous instrument). Buy this one, these guys deserve all the support they can get. And if you got the chance to see them live, do it! They are twice as good as on record.....believe me, what an experience that was!

5.0 out of 5 stars The most sensuous instumental this side of "Bolero" February 19, 2003
Format:Audio CD
No lie: I first heard Azymuth's "Last Summer in Rio" in the early 80's and taped it off the radio. The tape lasted a number of years, then in the summer of 2000, I bought the CD. An old girlfriend borrowed it and would not give it back. Six months later, on our first evening date, I noticed that my new ladyfriend had "Telecommunications" in her CD rack. This was a sign from God, as she had earlier told me that John Coltran's album with Johnny Hartman was one of her favorites. But, her taste in music was not the only reason I married her . . . .

5.0 out of 5 stars incredibly seductive........................... September 6, 1999
Format:Audio CD
The seductiveness of "Last summer in Rio" by far makes this album a must have. Azymuth truly knows how to reach in and penetrate your soul with their powerfully sexy music.

I heard the song "Last Summer In Rio" over 25 years ago and never forgot it. This was one of the best song I have ever heard and I always wanted the to hear the full LP/CD. I finally found it here at Amazon. After listening to this CD "Telecommunication" I can honestly say this one the best CD from one of the best band "Azymuth" in the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars What is best? June 18, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Everything these musicians do is is an enjoyable feat, and this one from the eighties is one of their best, although must of what they do ranges from "really good" to "best".

5.0 out of 5 stars Telecommunications May 5, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I searched various places to find this CD. Telecommunications is an awesome group. I also love the video of "Last Night in Rio" as well. If you love a group playing various instruments, I encourage you to buy the CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! January 10, 2010
By Simo
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the greatest jazz(-funk) albums I will ever own. It sounds so incredibly fresh and sophisticated. Anyone who says he/she loves the genre must give this at least one spin. It is a highly addictive work.

Nobody creates good stuff like this anymore. Great music but, so distressing to wait for new music to come out.
