Jazz Está Morto: Azimüth Concert

From the event description:

Azimüth was born out of the bossa nova and jazz scenes in Rio de Janeiro in the 1960’s. Keyboard player and bandleader Jose Roberto Bertrami (RIP), drummer Ivan ‘Mamao’ Conti and bass player Alex Malheiros met during that time and recorded an album called ‘O Trio’ in 1968 under the name Projeto 3. Projeto 3 changed their name to Azimüth after backing the recording of ‘O Fabuloso Fittipaldi’ for Marcos Valle in the early ’70’s –  'Azimüth’ is a track title from that album. Their first recording under the new name was a four-track EP for Polydor in 1975.
