Deodato_400x400Whilst on tour in the UK earlier this year, I had the pleasure of meeting with legendary producer, arranger and recording artist Eumir Deodato to conduct an exclusive interview for WhoSampled.com in which he speaks about his extensive career, working with greats including Wes Montgomery, Roberta Flack, Bjork and Frank Sinatra and collaborating with the new generation of artists who are now sampling his work.
