Incredible early work by Deodato! This record's got the maestro picking up the Hammond organ, and playing with a samba/bossa group – for a sound that's similar to Walter Wanderley's Brazilian recordings, but which have a bit more going on in the instrumental department – thanks to some great work on saxes, trombone, and trumpet! Dom Um Romao and Wilson Das Neves are on drums, and the record's got a firey sound to it that's a perfect complement to the great bossa keyboard lines by Deodato – tightly rhythmic, but also fluid and smooth too. Tracks include "So Por Amor", "Baiaozinho", "Cheers!", "Samba Nova", "Pouca Duracao", "Esperanca", "Ela E Carioca", and "Menina Certinha". CD
An organ bossa classic from the legendary Eumir Deodato – one of his strongest albums from his early years in Brazil! There's a very jazzy feel to the set all the way through – thanks to a tightly arranged group that not only features the organ and percussion you might expect from such a date, but which also features some great horn work as well! Trombone, tenor, and baritone sax all get in some nice licks – and Deodato's organ cooks wonderfully throughout, often with a quick-stepping bossa jazz sound that really keeps things lively. Titles include "O Sol Nascera", "Samba Do Dom Natural", "Terra De Ninguem", "E Bom Parar", and "Ataque". CD
A rare Brazilian album from the legendary keyboardist Deodato – recorded right around the same time as his classic CTI albums Prelude and Deodato 2 – but much more obscure! This set's got a similar electric vibe, but is much more compact – with maybe more organ than Rhodes, on tunes that are short, groovy, and very much to the point – graced with the kind of arranging genius that Eumir showed during the bossa nova years, but with a lot more soul and funk elements in the mix! The whole thing's very unique – not like any other Deodato album – and it was partly recorded in New York, with help from Phil Bodner and Romeo Penque on saxes and flute, and trumpet from Marvin Stamm. Titles include "Arranha Ceu" – a remake of his "Skyscrapers" – plus "Puma Branco", "Extremo Norte", "Menina", "O Jogo", "Flap", "Atire A 1a Pedra", and "Carlota E Carolina". CD

Sublime early work from the legendary Deodato – organ-based bossa jazz, done in a style that's quite different from his funky keyboard records of the 70s! The album's got a style that's a fair bit like that of Walter Wanderley at the time – lots of samba and bossa rhythms, topped with organ solos that have a clean, lean kind of groove! Especially nice are a few US numbers, given the bossa twist – including "Champagne & Quail" and "My Manne Shelly" – alongside the tracks "Gente", "Tremendao", "De Presente", "Labareda", and "Imenso Do Amor". This is the newly reissued version, with 24 bit remastering, great notes, and even an extra alternate take of one track on the LP! CD
