At the height of Deodato’s productivity in the early 70s, Os Catedraticos 73 was recorded between Rio de Janeiro and New York, featuring a Brazilian rhythm section comprising Azymuth drummer Ivan ‘Mamao’ Conti, percussion master Orlandivo, and Sergio Barroso on bass, while the horn section features some of the big apple’s top players from the CTI in-house brass. A firm favourite with rare-groove enthusiasts and fans of Latin jazz alike, Deodato melds the musical sensibility of post-bossa nova Brazilian jazz with North American soul and funk, and the explosive Latin influences of ‘70s New York. Os Catedraticos 73 certainly swings harder than some of Deodato’s earlier releases and opening track Arranha Ceu (Skyscrapers) is a euphoric dance floor classic, which has been lighting up clubs for years. With the blessing of Deodato himself, this official Far Out reissue has been remastered and pressed to 180 Gram Vinyl, with replica original artwork from the OG Equipe release.
