      Throughout a career that has spanned over twenty years and seen collaborations with MF DOOM, Thom Yorke, Damon Albarn, BadBadNotGood, Portishead’s Beth Gibbons, Kimbra and Khujo Goodie (Dungeon Family), Jneiro Jarel’s consistently distinctive, forward thinking productions, as well as his love for the music of Brazil, made his partnership with Far Out a perfect fit. Recorded between New York, New Orleans, Miami and Costa Rica, After A Thousand Years features legendary multi-instrumentalist Bill Summers, famed for his work with Herbie Hancock, Quincy Jones and Eddie Henderson. The album also features Malawian-American guitarist Masauko Chipembere who has worked with the likes of RZA from Wu-Tang Clan and Ladybug Mecca from Digable Planets. In 2018 Far Out Recordings signed a record deal with Brooklyn born, nomadic producer Jneiro Jarel.

      Having just put the finishing touches to the recordings, Jarel suffered an ischemic stroke while living and working in Costa Rica and his wife Indigo was forced to set up a crowd fund to cover special medical transport back to the states to receive treatment. The release was put on hold, but thanks to the generosity of friends and fans around the world, Jarel was able to get the care he needed and is now on the long road to recovery. For Jarel, After A Thousand Years is “a culmination of the longstanding musical contributions of the African diaspora.” Permeating the Brazilian music and Latin jazz Jarel has loved and drawn inspiration from, as well as the stateside jazz, soul and funk Jarel grew up around, the influence of Africa and its musical history, on both North and South America, is key to the album’s sound.

      On lead single “Banana Peel”, Jarel’s outernational perspective makes for a track that is almost impossible to place geographically: you can hear the swing of Jarel’s native New Orleans jazz, the vibrance of Costa Rican rainforests as well as the influence of Jarel’s vast collection of Brazilian records. “Viberian Waves 1&2” is equally nonconformist, morphing from funky baroque-flavoured instrumental hip hop into a bossa inspired, percussive jam. Taking its inspiration from the biblical prophecies found in the books of Isaiah, Daniel, and Revelation, foretelling the fully realized, physical and spiritual restoration of the earth and mankind after the thousand year reign of the Messianic Kingdom, After A Thousand Years contemplates and celebrates a world where everlasting love, peace, and harmony abound under a sovereign, divine rulership

      Ivan Conti

      Poison Fruit (Special Edition)

        THIS IS A RECORD STORE DAY 2020 RELEASE AVAILABLE ONLINE ONLY AS PART OF THE AUGUST 29TH DROP DAY AT 6PM.
        LIMITED TO ONE PER PERSON.


        A special 'poisoned vinyl' edition of Ivan 'Mamao' Conti's critically acclaimed Poison Fruit album, which includes a limited edition 7" with an unreleased track from the original sessions 'Katmandu', and on the flip, a track never before on vinyl, 'Ninho'. For Record Store Day 2020, Far Out Recordings presents a special 'poisoned vinyl' edition of Ivan 'Mam„o' Conti's critically acclaimed Poison Fruit album.The 180g splattered colour LP is accompanied by an exclusive bonus 7" with a previously unreleased track from the original Poison Fruit sessions 'Katmandu, and 'Ninho', a track never before released on vinyl. From an artist in their seventies, you probably wouldn't expect to hear an album like this.But Brazilian drumming legend Ivan 'Mam„o' Conti has been experimenting and innovating for the last half a century.As one third of cult Rio jazz-funk trio Azymuth, Mam„o was at the root of the group's 'samba doido' (crazy samba) philosophy, which warped the traditional samba compass with jazz influences and space age electronics.Even with his lesser known jovem guarda group The Youngsters, Mam„o was experimenting with tapes and delays to create unique, ahead-of-its-time sounds, way back in the sixties.More recently Mam„o recorded an album with hip-hop royalty Madlib under the shared moniker 'Jackson Conti'. With his first album in over twenty years, and the first to be released on vinyl since his 1984 classic The Human Factor, Mam„o shares his zany carioca character across eleven tracks of rootsy electronic samba and tripped out jazz, beats and dance music.Featuring Alex Malheiros and Kiko Continentino on a number of tracks, the Azymuth lifeblood runs deep, but venturing into the modern discotheque (as Mam„o would call it), Poison Fruit also experiments with sounds more commonly associated with house and techno, with the help of London based producer Daniel Maunick (aka Dokta Venom) and Mam„o's son Thiago Maranh„o.

        Milton Nascimento

        Ultimo Trem

          THIS IS A RECORD STORE DAY 2020 RELEASE AVAILABLE ONLINE ONLY AS PART OF THE AUGUST 29TH DROP DAY AT 6PM.
          LIMITED TO ONE PER PERSON.


          First time on vinyl! Following the release of Milton Nascimento's Maria Maria, Far Out Recordings proudly presents Nascimento's 1980 follow up.With the success of Maria Maria in 1976 behind them, Nascimento reunited with his writing partner Fernando Brant in 1980 to produce another ballet, 'Ultimo Trem (Last train)'.This time, they chose to tackle a more contemporarily relevant subject, the impact of the closure of a train line that connected certain towns and cities in the North East of Minas Gerais to the coast."The military government shut down the route and the whole region began to fade away," explains Milton."I love train rides" adds the composer, "But today there are almost no trains to Brazil.So when I go to the US and Europe, any time I can, I go by train.The longer the journey the better." Featuring much of the same all-star line-up as Maria Maria ñ including legendary Brazilian musicians Nan· Vasconcelos, Jo„o Donato, Paulinho Jobim and members of Som Imagin·rio, amongst many others, like Maria Maria, the album holds what Milton himself considers to be the definitive versions of some of his most beloved tracks, including 'SaÌdas E Bandeiras' and 'Ponte de Areia'. The title track, 'Ultimo Trem' ñ performed exquisitely by ZezÈ Mota with a choir and piano ñ is a mournful lament about the human consequences of the axed line.The ballet brought great media attention to the campaign against closure."Most of Fernando's lyrics have some political tone," says Milton, "This one helped the area a lot because the politicians grew concerned about the subjects." Fernando's and Milton's shared passion for the sounds, smells and memories of trains, inspired the soundtrack for the production which premiËred in 1980.'A Viagem (The trip)', launched with a train's steam whistle, sees Milton's guitar moving to a train's rhythm.In contrast to the usual lyricism, 'Bicho Homen (Beastly man)' and 'Decreto (Degree)' are atypically upbeat and funky, their vocals a mesh of wordless male voices resembling the then fashionable Swingles Singers' renderings of Bach.'E DaÌ? (And so what?)', and 'Olho d'Agua (Water's Eye)' were both drawn from 'Clube Da Esquina'.'Olho d'Agua' is mellow and delicate and Milton's homage to the great voices of Brazil whilst 'E DaÌ? (And so what?)' is a stunning mosaic of voices.The unusual 'O Velho (The Old Man)' conjures up an image of an old shaman singing alone into the wind against the cries of nature.Perhaps the most affecting songs are Nascimento's 'Itamarandiba' and 'OraÁ„o (Prayer)'.The latter is a cry for a change in the situation whilst 'Itamarandiba' ends with an upbeat, whirling Hammond organ and guitar timepiece.The closing track 'Ponta de Areia (Sand Edge)', was based on one of Fernando's newspaper stories and became one of Milton's most famous pieces, covered by musicians across the planet, including Wayne Shorter and Earth, Wind and Fire.It reappeared as a ghostly 45-seconds memory on the 'Milton e Gil' album, his millennial collaboration with Gilberto Gil. After 27 years of being locked inside contracts and record company legalities, these sublime songs were finally released in 2003 as a double CD package, along with Maria Maria.Set for its first ever vinyl release for this year's Record Store Day, on limited edition red vinyl, Ultimo Trem sounds as fresh and relevant now as when Brazilian music was still a South American secret.

          London based Brazilian specialists Far Out Recordings venture further out to Uruguay to record a new album with fusion legend Hugo Fattoruso. After a twenty-year search for the man behind the cult 70s jazz-funk group Opa, Far Out are honoured to present Barrio Opa: a new work from Fattoruso and his team of world-class musicians, including the sensational Candombe drumming of the renowned Silva brothers.

          Recorded at Sondor Studios, Montevideo, the album is the natural development of the original Opa sound, fusing Afro-Uruguayan rhythms, jazz harmony and heavy funk attitude, under Hugo’s unique musical vision.

          Fusing Candombe (traditional rhythm of Uruguay) with rock, jazz, funk and other Latin American rhythms, Opa created a distinctive Afro-Uruguayan voice within the global jazz vernacular, influencing a generation of musicians throughout the seventies and beyond. Fattoruso also famously collaborated extensively with Airto Moreia, arranging and playing on a plethora of hit records including Fingers and I’m Fine, How Are You. More recently Fattoruso’s music has been sampled by the likes Flying Lotus and Madlib.

          Recorded at the state of the art Sondor Studios in Montevideo’s iconic Barrio Sur district, the album features some of the world class musicians at the forefront of today’s Uruguayan jazz scene, including Hugo’s son Francisco Fattoruso on bass, Tato Bolognini on drums, Albana Barrocas on percussion and Nicolas Ibarburu on electric guitar. The album also features the Candombe drumming of the legendary Silva brothers, Mathias, Guillermo Diaz and Wellington, who give the album its Afro-Uruguayan identity, transporting the listener to Barrio Sur, the spiritual home of Montevideo’s Candombe heritage.

          In Hugo’s own words “this is the sound of Opa today.” This is most prevalent on ‘Goldenwings’ the fresh take on the funk-fusion masterpiece which became an underground hit in London jazz clubs in the 80s ‘. The stripped back yet equally rip-roaring trio piece ‘Botijas’ is led by Hugo’s virtuosic piano playing and hypnotic wordless vocals, and backed by an inventive, heavy grooving fusion of Latin rhythms from Tato Bolognini on drums. The shining moments for the Silva brothers’ Tambor playing are ‘Candombelek’ - a beautifully moody Afro-Uruguyan groove with characterful rhodes and vocal harmonies - and ‘Candombe Alto’, a carnival-esque track, awash with soaring synth lead, wahwah guitar and pulsating keys.

          In 1975, the prolific and multi-talented Brazilian comedians Chico Anysio and Arnaud Rodrigues recorded an album based on the protagonist of one of their most celebrated TV series.
          Sporting a dodgy moustache and an equally troubling haircut, Carioca conman Paulo Mauricio Azambuja (played by Anysio) would flog his own mother’s leg if he could, and his ever-ridiculous scams are inevitably always destined to fail. This soundtrack/musical re-imagining of the series combines jazz-funk with samba soul and MPB, with the help of cult Brazilian trio Azymuth. Keyboard maestro Jose Roberto Bertrami, who arranged the album alongside renowned conductor and composer Jose Menezes, elevates the groovy oddball sound to another dimension, with his set up including Fender Rhodes, Arp Strings, Arp Omni, Clavinet and Hammond organ. Remaining Azymuth members Ivan Conti (drums) and Alex Malheiros (bass) provide the signature Azymuth foundation, and saxophone prodigy Victor Assis Brasil and legendary multi-instrumentalist producer Durval Ferreira also feature.
          As well as its distinctly comedic character, what makes the music so special is the coming together of traditional samba roots, and Azymuth’s ahead-of-itstime psychedelic funk influence. Each side ends with a comedy monologue, complete with live audience laughter, but before that you get seven tracks of weird and wonderfully emotive Brazilian groove music.

          Baiano & Os Novos Caetanos

          Baiano & Os Novos Caetanos

            Baiano & Os Novos Caetanos was a band formed by prolific and multitalented Brazilian comedians Chico Anysio and Arnaud Rodrigues. Satirising Brazil’s Tropicalia movement in the 1970s, the duo took a friendly crack at the likes of Caetano Veloso and psychedelic rockers Novos Baianos, with their righteous tropicalista alter-egos ‘Baiano’ and ‘Paulinho Boca de Profeta’ poetically denouncing the dictatorship while simultaneously mocking those who took themselves too seriously.

            Jazz funk legends Azymuth play backing band with keyboard maestro Jose Roberto Bertrami also responsible for the arrangements on the album. Azymuth’s free and funky psych sounds combine with accordion, harmonica, brass and plenty of rural Brazilian rhythms, for a hugely varied album drawing on MPB, funk and soulful samba rock.

            The album also features Orlandivo who co-wrote many of the songs, and renowned multi-instrumentalist and producer Durval Ferreira.
