Aum was an instrumental group formed by five musicians from Belo Horizonte in the 1980s. Swimming against the current, they made a hybrid sound, a jazz fusion with progressive rock that defied the disinterested public "new wave" of that decade. Even so they managed to reach the only lp. They recorded independently in Bemol, in 1983, this album that today has become a rare jewel, quoted very expensive in the tallow and free markets out there.
After more than twenty years, the music of Aum remains intact, causing me surprises. Gee, those guys were really good!.....~
Belorizonte is the only record of the career of progressive rock band Aum. Released in 1983, the totally independently recorded record today is a relic, and so has become very valuable in the hands of collectors.
In a period where it was very difficult to record and release without a record label behind, in addition to being epoch where new wave sold millions in Brazil, the 5 miners of Aum, released a beautiful album mixing progressive rock with jazz fusion, creating a beautiful work far from the hands of the great corporations of the recording industry, in a period where the stratospheric gains of record companies were very present.....~
It’s not easy to find information about the Aum band that released a single Belorizonte album (1983). The same year as the masterpiece Prog Depois Do Fim of Bacamarte. Imaginatively, Aum is the meeting between Jazz Fusion, the Canterbury School and the luminous spirit of the MPB. Belorizonte is an instrumental album close to the spirit of Progressive Rock bands such as Caravan, sensitive inspiration on the piece “Belo Horizonte” with its keyboard solo and its 9mn30 (the parallel with the “For Richard” Caravan naturally imposes itself ), National Health or Hatfield and the North. I also mention the first albums of Camel and his instrumental tracks. If the inspiration “canterburian” is blatant, Belorizonte is nonetheless an album of character with a real musical unity, close to the idea that I can make of the concept album. Aum consists of José Paulo Serrao (bass), Leonardo Gementi (drums), Marcio (Frango) (guitar), Betinho (keyboard), Taquinho (guitar). Only one album, then the formation evaporated. Can not find out more...~
