The fondly recalled 1973 New York session featuring Randy Brecker, Airto, Ray Barretto, and Eumir Deodato,

This is really a Deodato record, Joao Donato having laid down basic keyboard tracks and promptly hightailed it back to Brazil, leaving Deodato and studio players to flesh out the rest..

I found Deodato's keyboard work and arrangements in the past to be very innovative and when mixed with Donato's musical genius, it hadds a nice fusion of horns and orchestration similar to some of Jobim's arrangements. Very tropical and easy to listen to, the rythym really cooks and flows nicely , especially on "Where's J.D.?" <My favorite piece>

Deodato - Batuque

Really diggin this sound. can't fail on the muse label.

And Ray Baretto on the percusion. Pure Dope
