Deodato's "Do It Again" available in the USA - DustyGroove review

Dusty Groove America - Deodato: Do It Again -- The Fantastic Jazz ...CD (Item 466074)

Deodato's brand-new compilation "Do It Again", produced by Arnaldo DeSouteiro for Verve Rcords, is now available in the USA and can be ordered by American customers through the famous DustyGroove webstore.

That's what the Dusty Groove website says about the CD:

Do It Again -- The Fantastic Jazz Funk Of Eumir Deodato
Deodato CD (Item 466074)

A great look at an under-acknowledged period of the career of Eumir Deodato -- his mid 70s sides for MCA, recorded right after his better-known records for CTI! The vibe here is quite similar to the jazzy funk that Deodato laid down in the earlier part of the decade -- a bit fuller at times, thanks to some added instrumentation, but still filled with amazing work on Fender Rhodes throughout -- sweetly soaring keys that come off better than most of Deodato's contemporaries on the fusion scene. The set list here is totally great -- and features most of the best tracks from Deodato's four albums for MCA -- all distilled down into one great 14 track collection that's filled with wonderful keyboard grooves. Titles include "Amani", "Do It Again", "Moonlight Serenade", "Havana Strut", "Whirlwinds", "Juanita", "Funk Yourself", "Adam's Hotel", "Black Widow", and "Super Strut".
