All compositions by Eumir Deodato except “Bebê” by Hermeto Pascoal.
An interesting and beautiful album from Deodato, very different from his funkier work from the same period. It´s extremely short — only 24 minutes — but its a very engaging listen, even as it can make good ‘background’ music for chilling out with a good book (as I found out recently), which can’t be said of his very lively funk interpretations of pieces like ‘Also Sprach Zarathurstra’. It’s dominated by lush orchestrations, most of the pieces being rather slow and often melancholic, with a few upbeat numbers (“A grande caçada”, The Great Hunt, and “Bebê”, written by Hermeto Pascoal). This might be one of his lesser-known albums but I think it is some of his best work. Unfortunately the musicians are uncredited on the sessions.
