Jazz Carnival

by Azymuth



In 1979 when “Light As A Feather’ was released, Azymuth was thrust unto the world stage receiving accolades from across the musical spectrum and plaudits from fans from around the world. One song that to this day remains emblematic of that early success has to be ‘Jazz Carnival’. Now for the first time, this absolute classic of the genre, is being released in its original full length unedited mix, and on heavyweight vinyl, an absolute must have for true fans of this legendary outfit and audio purists alike.
On the B-Side, Far Out family friend Ashley Beedle teams up with production outfit Yam Who? to rework this classic Azymuth tune into a house disco funk groover. Maintaining the original’s spirit of adept musicality and adventure while delivering nine plus minutes of straight for the dance floor vibes, this b-side highlights how Azymuth’s, led by ‘Jose Roberto Bertrami’, signature sound continues to influence today.
