Celebrate Hermeto

November 3 sees the release of Brazilian master Hermeto Pascoal’s legendary Viajando Com O SomThe Lost ’76 Vice Versa Studio Sessions by Far Out Records. It’s a huge deal: partly because it marks the uncovering of a previously unreleased masterpiece by a very fine musician indeed, but also because it happens to be Far Out’s 200th release!
To celebrate, the label is taking over the Total Refreshment Centre [Foluden Rd, N16] for a lauch party at which Mr. Sean Khan will play a live set that will not only include music from the Viajando Com O Som album, but also some of the music from his own forthcoming album. The latter was recently recorded in Rio de Janeiro, with none other than Hermeto himself!
Sean likes Viajando Com O Som quite a lot. In his own words: “This is a fucking crazy record. In my humble opinion this is up there with Miles’ iconic Bitches Brew. My snatch judgement of this Hermeto record, this is the best jazz record from the 1970s and you can quote me on that.” We just did.
In addition, the Far Out crew headed up by Joe Davis will be keeping the party alive until the early hours with dancefloor rhythms from Brazil and beyond.
Line up:
Sean Khan Live (Playing the Music of Hermeto Pascoal)
Joe Davis
Josh Tautz
