Azymuth started their individual careers in the 1960s in the emergent bossa nova and jazz scene of Rio, living in the same bohemian block in Copacabana and playing in small bars as session musicians. Keys player and bandleader Bertrami had noticed how great Ivan Conti ‘Mamao’ was as a drummer, and how fantastic Alex Malheiros was with his new electric bass, and invited them to record with him: their first piece of work together was under the name Group Projeto 3 in 1968.
