(March 14, 2016): Eumir Deodato – Super Strut

From the 1974 live album, Artistry.  This outing was recorded at the 6th Mississippi River Festival at Southern Illinois University’s Edwardsville campus.  Leonard Slatkin, then the director and conductor of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, agreed to bring over the Orchestra for the recording. This live version of the song has much more energy than the studio cut off Deodato’s second LP.  I think I first heard bits of the LP used by local advertisers and KPLR TV in promos, without knowing where those jingles came from.

    Deodatos piano on the studio version of SUPErSTRUT has more punch. So does the guitar playing.
