Azymuth's celebrated bass player Alex Malheiros returns with this stunning solo project. Full of perfectly crafted authentic jazz 'The Wave' features Banda Utopia's dazzling musicianship, Alex's gifted daughter Sabrina Malheiros' lush vocals and IG Culture remix twists. World renowned and a seriously funky bass player, Alex Malheiros is a genuine Brazilian music hero. As part of the legendary electric jazz funk trio Azymuth, Malheiros has established himself as one of the all time great bassists.

Far Out Recordings wanted to make a record of high quality jazz and Alex Malheiros was the man to fulfil Far Out founder Joe Davis' wishes:"Bassists always have a great sensitivity for music and I was sure Alex could execute the composition of almost an entire album of tunes. We made a demo back in 2005 and released the 12" 'Wave' single from Alex Malheiros and Banda Utopia feat Sabrina Malheiros and IG Culture Remixes feat John Robinson. I was so happy with the result of that recording that I decided to make the CD with Alex, a great friend and someone who has brought a lot of success to Far Out." Joe Davis, 2009

Alex Malheiros learnt his trade playing with the master of Brazilian swing Ed Lincoln in the dance halls of 60s Rio de Janeiro. Alex has performed and recorded with the greats of Brazilian music and is a beautiful songwriter with perfect balance of harmony and groove; the archetypal bass player, calm and relaxed whilst all around him is in mayhem. Alex Malheiros is respected in Brazil as one of the original groove masters, having developed a unique sound with his Rickenbacker bass licks."This is an album that has motivated me to revisit the time when I started playing professionally in the 60s creating contemporary jazz. 'The Wave' has added a lot to my career, working with dedication and happiness collaborating with my friends and musicians including producer Daniel and my daughter, Sabrina. It has added to my experience on this planet." Alex Malheiros, 2009

'The Wave' features cover versions of Bobbi Humphrey track 'Uno Esta' and original Alex Malheiros songs. Daniel Maunick, son of the legendary Bluey from Incognito, produced the album having formed a great partnership with the Malheiros family and the result is a funky and chilled out slice of universal jazz. Standout tracks 'Uno Esta', 'The Wave' and 'Copa a Noite' instantly stick in your mind and with its mix of classic jazz and Brazilian vibes 'The Wave' is a record to cherish.
