Knights Of Fantasy is a studio album by Brazilian pianist, composer and producer Deodato, originally released in 1979 via Warner Bros. Records.

Eumir Deodato is a Brazilian pianist, composer, record producer and arranger, primarily based in the jazz realm but who historically has been known for eclectic melding of big band and combo jazz with varied elements of rock/pop, R&B/funk, Brazilian/Latin, classical and symphonic or orchestral music.

Mainly, his records can be categorized as pop/jazz or crossover jazz. His successes as an original artist (keyboards) occurred mainly in the 1970s. Since then, he has produced or arranged music in more than 500 albums for acts ranging from Kool and the Gang to Björk, Christophe and k.d. lang

On his 1979 album Knights Of Fantasy, Eumir Deodato once again concocted his own ineffable brew of Fusion and funky Disco. Four-to-the-floor beats, funky percussion and heavy synths make for an album that seemingly has an endless groove going.

The B-side opens with 3-part piece called "Bachmania", which includes an adaptation of Bach's "Jesu, Jay Of Man's Desiring" – in a very funky way of course.

Fun fact: the list of used synths include a slew of analog classic machines like a Fender Rhodes Suitcase 88 Piano, Mini-Moog, ARP Pro-Soloist, ARP Omni, Sequential Circuits Prophet-5, Maxi-Korg, Hohner Clavinet and a Polymoog. Essential Jazz Funk from the Disco era.

Check out a couple of tracks from the album:  Space Dust / Sherlock, Shazam, Bachmania and Knights of Fantasy.

This Music On Vinyl Reissue (January 2016) is on 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl housed in a Gatefold Sleeve, pressed in Europe.
