EUMIR DEODATO - PERCEPCAO
Quite a rare one from Deodato a lost album of instrumental tracks cut around the same time as his more famous funky work for CTI! The set was issued only in Brazil, and is a sublime extension of the complicated arranging style Deodato was famous for in the 60s a blend of jazz and strings that soars along a mellow, easy groove lightly dancing in the sky with a gentle approach that takes the experiments of the bossa years and inflects them into a more complicated soundtrack-type style. Includes an incredible version of the track "Bebe".
Reissued as part of the 100 years series for Odeon-still available on cd from Dusty Groove who i lifted the review from(again!)
