Brazilian-born keyboardist, arranger and producer Eumir Deodato has racked up 16 platinum records, while his discography, including compilations and all his work as arranger, producer and keyboardist, surpasses over 450 albums. But despite such a successful career, the man known as simply 'Deodato' will always be best known for his brilliant adaptation of the Richard Strauss classicalopus, "Also Sprach Zarathustra (Theme From 2001: A Space Odyssey)".

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
