Although Eumir Deodato is best known for his rendition of 'Also Sprach Zarathustra', this Brazilian producer and arranger is definitely not a one-trick pony.
Before CTI decided to give him the spotlight, he had already worked with some of the best in the business; Frank Sinatra, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Wes Montgomery. The Grammy winning signature track, a Latin-fused arrangement of the theme from 2001: A Space Oddisey, propelled Prelude to the top of the charts, making it the best selling record of CTI's catalogue. But the other songs can hold their own as well.
Deodato's arrangements are lush, his Rhodes playing is light, elegant and funky. Prelude is a jewel from the CTI-treasury.
