Deodato - Prelude

What can I say - I'm in the mood. Seminal recording by Brazillian keyboardist - Eumir Deoadato and a supergroup of jazz stars puts this one at the top of my groove list. "Also Sprach Zarathustra " was his biggest hit and still holds its own today. Good for Valentine's day.

01. Also Sprach Zarathustra (R. Strauss, adapted by Deodato) - 9:01 02. Spirit Of Summer (Deodato) - 4:14 03. Carly And Carole (Deodato) - 3:41 04. Baubles, Bangles And Beads (A. Borodin, R. Wright, G. Forrest) - 5:20 05. Prelude To The Afternoon Of A Faun (C. Debussy, adapted by Deodato) - 5:13 06. September 13 (Cobham, Deodato) - 5:56

Eumir Deodato - piano, electric piano
John Tropea & Jay Berliner - guitars
Ron Carter & Stanley Clarke - basses
Billy Cobham - drums
Airto Moreira & Ray Barretto - percussion
+ strings & horns (including Hubert Laws - solo flute on Prelude To The Afternoon Of A Faun)

One of my early exposures to music from Brazil was a jazz musician named Eumir Deodato. Someone recommended that I pick up "Prelude". Trusting this friends advice, I quickly ran out to the store to buy this album. This is a rare album that I have owned on record, cassette and CD at different times.web design companyforex money managers

One of the best jazz-funk-predisco albums ever created, and to think it's almost 40 years old this year!

Thanks for the memories...!
