Prelude is the first CTI Deodato’s record as a leader and by far the most known. With his chart topping version of Strauss’ Also Sprach Zarathustra he made a mark in the pop jazz music history. That song sold at least five million copies and was awarded by Billboard Top instrumental LP, Top Jazz LP, Top Pop Instrumental Single, Cashbox, Record World, and Playboy magazines, also winning a Grammy Award in the Best Instrumental Pop/Rock performance in 1973 and becoming the most successful record in the label’s history. For this album Deodato was also voted #1 Instrumentalist and #2 jazz artist of the year in 1973. Beyond the ultra-famous rendition of Also Sprach Zarathustra, the album contains a new version of two previously released Deodato’s compositions: Carly & Carole and the touching, lyrical Spirit of Summer.
