Airto Moreira – Natural Feelings (1970)

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 16 de outubro 2007.
Comentários originais incluídos.

This is a recording session that I would like to take part. No matter what doing there, serving coffee, shining shoes, whatever.

We have here the first album recorded by Airto Moreira in US, featuring Flora Purim, Hermeto Pascoal, Sivuca, Ron Carter and Gary McFarland as producer, a constellation of top-notch musicians at their peak. And the most incredible fact about this album, Natural Feelings never had a CD reissue, as far as I could search. Let’s see.

This is Airto Moreira – Natural Feelings (1970), for Buddah Records. It is nice to see the back cover with recording session photos showing Hermeto Pascoal and Sivuca on a very young age. Hermeto had a short hair and I would not recognize him. This cover artwork is also amazing and it is provided with a very nice scan, you will spend several minutes navigating on each detail. I’m not versed on Airto Moreira discography, and if the other records he made are such like this one, it really worth to start a series on Airto Moreira. Anyway, I will let you with this surprisingly album.

Tracks include:


Airto Moreira
(percussion, vocal, drums)

Flora Purim


Hermeto Pascoal
(organ, harpsichord, piano, flute)

Ron Carter

Gary McFarland

Track List

01 – Alue (Flora Purim / Airto Moreira)
02 – Xibaba (She-ba-ba) (Airto Moreira)
03 – Terror (Hermeto Pascoal)
04 – Bebê (Hermeto Pascoal)
05 – Andei (Hermeto Pascoal)
06 – Mixing (Airto Moreira)
07 – The Tunnel (Hermeto Pascoal)
08 – Frevo (Hermeto Pascoal)
09 – Liamba (Airto Moreira)

A great album. I have this paired on a CD with Seeds on the Ground. I don’t think the CD is available anymore — I bought it many years ago.

Nice album, but it has indeed been released on CD — several times, although they may all be out of print. The version I have on One Way Records is called Seeds in the Ground, a shoddily packaged twofer of Airto’s first two solo albums. The same tracks appear on the CD called The Essential Airto, but with the Natural Feelings front cover. I’ve also seen a Japanese CD of Natural Feelings on its own.

Looking forward to hearing this one. Reason being i have a DVD of Miles Davis at the Isle of Wight 1970 (do a search on and Airto Moreira is playing with him there.
Heady times, by the looks of things. MD, and jazz itself, had the US psychedelic rock scene to contend with.
Personally, it’s my favourate period of Miles Davis. When MD went electric and his sound was young, hip and improvised to themes.
Crazy stuff. He used to employ the best, most hipist, young talent. And Airto Moreira was right there.
Highly recommend it if u can get hold of it.
So, yes, very curious to hear this one.
As always, nice one, many thanks, Zeca!

What a fantastic album!! There’s actually been two cd editions of this, one japanese digipack last year and another one from a few years back that combined his second album for Skye, “Seeds On The Ground”(That you really should also post because it’s tremendous!!). Anyway, they’re both almost impossible to find and you’ve done yet another tremendous job!! Thank you for your contribution to great music and your fabulous site!!

I knew “Seeds on the Ground”, but never heard this one until now. And it sounds perfect, what a hell of a record! Zeca, there’s no mistake: more posts from Airto are welcome. Besides “Seeds…”, I would recommend my personal fave, “Promises of The Sun” (1976).
