And if you got the chance to see them live, do it!

You like one or two, maybe even three, but to enjoy the entire CD I was really impressed, and would purchase more music from these artists.

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!!

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!

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 . . . .

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.

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".

I first heard "Last summer in Rio" on jazz station one hot summer night where I couldn't sleep. I was driving along the FDR Drive in NYC at 3am, and will never forget the feeling of open windows, the East River gleaming, and the mystery of NY at night. The song provided the perfect soundtrack to this setting- one of soothing,mystery,passion,lust,and magic. The track is over 10 minutes, but you wish it would stop only when the sun rises. Needless to say, I love this album.

I just got turned onto this 1 a few weeks back, and I'm already addicted. I had never heard of these guys....or else i may have been a fan years ago. The whole album is very chilled, somethin to kick back & relax to. Mainly instrumentals, a couple tracks have minimal vocals included. Great album, do yourself a favor and check it out!
