From the press release:
Mad About Records is proud to present the official reissue of Mandala
Extremely Rare Private LP 70’s Brazilian Jazz Psych
Mandala made only one eponymous album, recorded in 1971 but released only in 1976. A very rare and influential album, featuring future members of Grupo Um (Nazário and Zeca Assumpção who also played with Hermeto and Egberto Gismonti) and Pau Brasil (Nelson Ayres) – two seminal bands from the Brazilian instrumental scene of the 80s.
The sound is a mix of Jazz Fusion with a Brazilian footprint – with a dash of psychedelic atmosphere and the spiced influence of oriental music.
