Day 128

Deodato- Prelude

I had no idea who Deodato was when I first got this album from a Half Price grab bag box. Any time I came across an album by someone I didn't know, I'd put it on and read up on them via allmusic.com or wikipedia. Most of them were total crap, but I really dug this album.

So for those of you who don't know who Deodato is, he's a Brazilian Jazz artist. He plays electric piano and I guess it's more modern jazz, but he's got a nice funky feel. I was really digging it. Especially opener "Also Sprach Zarathustra 2001" He totally funkifies the Strauss masterpiece. That alone is worth checking out this album. It's nine minutes long and takes up a good chunk of the album.

Here's Deodato and band live:
