Piero PiccioniI Fratelli Karamazov ... CD
Kronos (Austria), 1969. New Copy 2 CDs ... $28.99
A really great soundtrack for a late 60s film version of The Brothers Karamazov – scored by the mighty Piero Piccioni with a sensibility that's nicely balanced between epic modes and more personal, individual moments! The orchestrations on the album are often nicely restrained – never pushing too far, and soon laying back once the score gets moving – to allow great solo space for Piccioni on organ or Severino Gazzelloni on flute. I Cantori Moderni make a few key appearances, adding in their lovely vocals – and this expanded reissue features 2CDs, and a whopping 52 tracks in all! CD
(Limited edition of 500 copies.)

Piero PiccioniIl Demonio ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1964. New Copy ... $16.99
Definite demonic sounds from Piero Piccioni – one of the darkest soundtracks we've ever heard from the legendary Italian film composer – and a real standout from the rest of his work of the 60s! There's some very oddly-tuned instrumentation on the set – weird organ that's not entirely pipe organ, yet hardly Hammond either – often played in these long, twisted notes mixed with very offbeat and abstract percussion – all in ways that seem to reference the world of Xenakis and Stockhausen, yet which have a bit more of a cinematic focus here too. A few tunes are a bit more conventional, but still plenty darn tense – and titles include 14 tracks from the unreleased album, and 3 more long numbers from the film score! CD

Piero PiccioniIn Viaggio Con Papa ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1982. New Copy 2CDs ... $24.99
A really great later soundtrack from the mighty Piero Piccioni – put together with a depth that goes way beyond what you might expect from its early 80s date – or the look of the cover! The music's got some really great styles that are right up there with some of the best cop/crime modes of Italian films of the mid 70s – lots of electric bass, keys, and guitar riffing – often pretty darn funky, and at other times still plenty upbeat and melodic. Edda Dell'Orso sings on a few cuts, and Piccioni plays piano on a few others – and this massively expanded version features a whopping 54 cuts in all, many never issued before with titles that include "Viaggio Con Papa", "Detours", "Peregrin Falcon", "Foresta", "Black Glamour Girl", "Isole Del Tramonto", and "Papa Funky".

Piero PiccioniIn Viaggio Con Papa (Expanded) ... CD
GDM (Italy), 1983. Used ... $16.99
A later soundtrack by Piero Piccioni – but pretty darn nice! The work was scored for an early 80s comedy starring Alberto Sordi, and it features some slight funky touches that are more 70s action than you'd expect – grooving along with some nice electric bass, keys, and guitar riffing, in a mode that has some nice cop show-styled touches! The CD features some nice bonus tracks, including one with vocals by Edda Dell'Orso and one that's a piano solo by Piccioni – and there's a total of 18 tracks in all, with titles that include "Viaggio Con Papa", "Detours", "Peregrin Falcon", "Foresta", "Black Glamour Girl", "Isole Del Tramonto", and "Papa Funky".

Piero PiccioniScacco Alla Regina (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1969. New Copy ... $16.99
Sublime work from Piero Piccioni – a really Morricone-like soundtrack, and one that's filled with hauntingly beautiful melodies! There's a lightly gliding feel to the record that's really wonderful – light lines on organ, topped with wordless vocals from Edda Dell'Orso and I Cantori Moderni, alternating to suit the mood of the film, and really bringing out some of the most lovely qualities in Piccioni's music. The tunes unfold gently, like the petals of a flower in soft summer rains – and there's also an undercurrent of darkness at a few points, but one that hardly gets in the way of the breathy, bossa-styled tunes. Titles include "La Torre", "Da Soli In Vacanza", "Capriccio", "The Redcoat", "I Cavalli", and "Nero Piu Bianco". CD also features 11 more bonus tracks – really wonderful alternates of the main tunes, making for a huge 25 track package! CD

Piero PiccioniSeven Cadaveri Per Scotland Yard ... CD
Beat/Quartet (Spain), 1971. New Copy ... $22.99
A greatly expanded version of this Italian horror soundtrack – with way more music than we've ever seen on any previous edition! Piero Piccioni did the soundtrack for Seven Murders For Scotland Yard – in a style that mixes more dramatic orchestrations with a few great mod touches on organ, flute, and percussion – which step out nicely on the groovier tracks, and bring in a nice note of action and surprise to a score that's mostly tense and poised for danger! These few light bits really offset things nicely – and create an unsettling feel in a work that's pretty darn dark overall, and which shows some of the most somber qualities we've ever heard in Piccioni's music. Titles include "Seven Murders", "Unknown Maniac", "Reminding The Ripper", "Suspecting", "Inspector Campbell", and "Professor Christie" – and the CD features a total of 22 tracks in all! CD

Piero Piccioni/Luis BacalovFire Stars Dances ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1979. New Copy ... $10.99
The rare sound library disco record from Piero Piccioni & Luis Bacalov from the end of the 70s – really cool stuff with funky drums, guitars and bass that soars gloriously with strings – anchored by the 18+ minute title track and featuring several other cues! "Fire Stars Dances" is a langorous late period disco, while "Warsaw Concerto" recasts some more operatic sounds in a disco mode. Other tracks include "Prelude To Love" and "You Never Told Me" and this great CD edition includes 2 shorter alternate takes of the title track. CD

Piero Piccioni/Roger WilliamsMore Than A Miracle ... LP
MGM, Early 70s. Sealed ... $8.99
A dreamy little soundtrack by Piero Piccioni – not as mad as some of his more famous Italian work, but with plenty of nice touches! Piccioni's going for more of an atmospheric approach here with isolated instrumentation drifting over rhythmic string passages, in a way that's halfway between Ennio Morricone and Francis Lai. A few tracks have more whimsical musical touches – and the main theme is played by Roger Williams on piano with chorus backing. Titles include "The Chef", "The Tournament", "The Eggs Are Bewitched", "The Contest", "Prince Rodrigo", and "Rodrigo Leaves The Monastery". LP, Vinyl record album

New Piero PiccioniBelle Ma Povere ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1957. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great old school soundtrack from the mighty Piero Piccioni – one that predates some of his stronger jazz use in film, but which still has a pretty swinging sound overall! The music often has a very playful feel – either light melodies on lean instrumentation, or some even better numbers with a fuller group that bring in a mixture of Latin or swinging touches! Some elements have a nice undercurrent of sentimentality – more 50s Italian cinema than you'd find in Piero's later work – but the quality is carried off with just the sort of whimsy we'd expect from the maestro. CD features 26 tracks in all. CD

Beat (Italy), 1965. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wonderful wonderful stuff – exactly the kind of mod soundtrack we've really come to love from the legendary Piero Piccioni! The music's a very cool blend of jazz and more 60s-styled rhythms – including some groovers in the "jerk" or "shake" modes – all served up with instrumentation that includes some of those great organ lines that Piccioni used so well in La Deccima Vittima/The Tenth Victim – plus some strong tenor and flute lines that really echo his earlier work in jazz! The whole thing's wonderful – a blend of jaunty numbers and dreamy instrumentals – all remastered nicely, and presented in a very vivid package. CD

New Piero PiccioniSenilita (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
GDM (Italy), 1962. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Lovely early sounds from the great Piero Piccioni – a really masterfully-scored batch of music – rich in complex woodwind passages and evocative themes! Piccioni seems to borrow a bit from the style of Nino Rota – and some of the soundtrack composers who worked on Italian neo-realist films – and he blends these playful elements with darker, more abstract passages – all with a density that's beautiful, and a depth that goes way beyond some of his later, groovier material. The whole thing's a great surprise – a key early chapter for the maestro – and the CD adds in 13 bonus tracks, for over 70 minutes of music! CD

New Piero PiccioniCuore Di Cane ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The film's got a very weird story – about the evolution of a dog into a human – and Piero Piccioni turns out to be a very good choice for the soundtrack! Initial moments are done in a style that's more serious than usual for Piccioni – some broader, more traditional elements that set a scene that demands that the narrative be taken seriously. But as things move on, little whimsical touches start creeping into the mix, to underscore the comedy in the story – little playful flourishes that almost take us back more to a 60s world of Italian film themes, although carried off here with a few 70s touches. Not nearly as wild as some of Piccioni's work, but still a great illustration of the master's many talents – packaged here in a special set that features a whopping 11 bonus tracks! CD

New Piero PiccioniI Magliari ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1959. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An excellent jazz soundtrack from Piero Piccioni – captured at a great early point in his film career, when he was still mixing in lots of elements from his work in jazz as well! The style here echoes some of the French jazz soundtracks of the new wave – and the tunes often sport breakout solos with plenty of fire – tenor, trumpet, and lots of piano – the latter of which has an especially great feel on some of the more mellow, moody tunes. Rhythms are great too – sometimes slow and loose, sometimes more vibrant and boppish – and together, the tunes work together to offer up a vibrant version of the movie that's almost as striking as the images on the screen! CD features a total of 26 tracks in all – over 70 minutes of music, including a number of unreleased tracks. CD

Beat (Italy), 1962. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Lots of jazziness here – including tight piano, snapping snare, and moody vibes – all served up in one of the best early soundtracks we've heard from Piero Piccioni! The core of the record features the original EP release of the film score – some of the most tight, tuneful numbers that really showcase Piccioni's jazz potential – but even the rich array of bonus tracks (29 extra tunes!) still mostly retain the jazzy flourish of the originals, and offer up some sweet instrumental variations that are mighty nice! The whole thing stands strongly next to some of the best French or American jazz soundtracks of the period – and this reissue adds in so much extra music, the CD runs for almost 80 minutes in length.

New Piero PiccioniLe Altre ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1969. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Cool organ lines, wonderful keyboards, and lots of other great bits – all stepping out in a double-length set that's completely sublime – and maybe some of the best work we've ever heard from the mighty Piero Piccioni! The score is as sexy as you'd guess from the cover – and definitely has those bossa and jazz elements from the Morricone generation of Italian soundtrack work, too – yet it also has these interesting offbeat touches that are pure Piccioni right from the start – that great ear for odd tunings and unusual phrases that really keeps things interesting all the way through, and which makes the record so sublime from both a musical perspective and a sonic one! 2CD set features over two hours of music from this rare score – a number of which feature haunting wordless vocals from the lovely Edda Dell'Orso.

New Piero PiccioniLe Evasioni Celebri – Benvenuto Cellini/Giacamo Casanova ... CD
Saimel (Spain), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of period piece soundtracks from Piero Piccioni – both a bit different than his usual work of the time! Benvenuto Cellini has this moody blend of keyboards and woodwinds on the best numbers – almost sounding a bit ancient, at least in their stylistic reference – but with a sense of execution that's still definitely in a 70s Italian soundtrack mode, especially on some of the more dramatic numbers. Some numbers have these surprisingly rich string passages, with nice undercurrents of darkness – and the CD features 15 tracks from the film. Casanova has a fair bit of strings too, but scored with a lighter feel – one that befits the sensual adventuring of the lead character, although not without a touch of drama at times too. Many numbers have a waltz-like rhythm, but some move at a moodier, mellower pace with this very nice vibe – not entirely sentimental, but more like a French soundtrack overall. CD features 11 tracks from Casanova, all remastered. CD

New Piero PiccioniMaestro Series Vol 1 ... CD
Black Cat (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Maestro is right – as Piero Piccioni is one of the greatest soundtrack composers ever! The set brings together rare and unreleased Piccioni tracks from the 60s and 70s, and goes out of its way to feature tunes that haven't been reissued on other recent compilations of his material. The feel is really wonderful – a mix of slow funky Euro tunes and more upbeat bossa jazz styled ones – and a few numbers feature vocals, laid out in a mod and swinging kind of way. Totally great, and a really important addition to any collection of Italian soundtracks – with a nice interview with Piccioni on the inside, too! Titles include "Balboa Spell", "Grand Central Rock Drum", "Once & Again", "Jet Set Trip", "Right Or Wrong", "Brasilian Suite", "Tam Tam Suite", "Rome Lullaby", "Lagoa Sketch", and "Nuovo Duke". CD

The great Piero Piccioni at the height of his powers – working here on a sublime spy soundtrack from the 60s! The record's got a really wonderful sound right from the start – lots of cool Hammond organ lines that bubble and shimmer in ways that are quite different than the use of the instrument by any American jazz players of the time – really weird and wild from a sonic perspective, but still set to lots of cool and groovy rhythms as well! The soundtrack's got the same sublime appeal as Piccioni's legendary music for La Deccima Vittima/The Tenth Victim – just the sort of essential lost gem that got us collecting rare soundtracks in the first place! 30 tracks in all – with great sound throughout.

Sublime sounds from Piero Piccioni – one of the Italian soundtrack genius' best moments of the mid 70s! The album's got a nicely laidback, slinky sort of feel – one that's almost a 70s update of the vibe Piero first laid down in Tenth Victim – with snakey keyboard bits and sax lines – some sweet bossa moments, and other sexy touches. There's a few funky moments too, but these are in the minority – leaving most of the record to have this wonderfully mellow glow, but still with all the odd little twists we've come to love in Piccioni's music! Titles include "Number One Superman", "Let's Face Love", "Going My Round", "Guitars Improvviso", "El Agitato", and "Combinazione Special". Plus, this set features a bonus CD with 32 more bonus tracks – loads of variations, alternates, and outtakes – a real treasure trove of great music! CD

One of the hippest Italian soundtracks of the 60s – and a motherlode of tracks by the great Piero Piccioni! The soundtrack is the source of the oft-compiled "Mr Dante Fontana", a nutty groover about the mod fashion scene in Italy – and it also features the famous tracks "Richmond Bridge" and "You Never Told Me". Most of the music is by Piccioni and the wonderful vocal group I Cantori Moderni, with Edda Dell'Orso on vocals – but the CD also features some work by Lydia Mac Donald, Julie Rogers, and Ennio Morricone. Includes a few versions of the "Fontana" and "Richmond", plus "Ascot Dream", "Magic Castle", "Tango Walk", "Drag Beat", "This Is Life", "Palace Parade March", "Babylon, I'm Coming", and "His Dream Has Come True". Very groovy – with loads of excellent material, and 27 cuts in all! LP, Vinyl record album

Heavy fuzz with a good deal of funk as well – a very unique set from the Italian sound library scene – and one that comes across with the feel of some lost psych record from the underground! The album was produced by Piero Piccioni – and features soundtrack/sound library maestros Alessandro Alessandroni and Oronzo De Filippi, working as the pseudonymous Braen and Gisteri – in a batch of heavy drums and basslines, topped with lots of fuzzed up guitar – but all with a tightness that's a lot more forward-moving than the usual set of this nature!

Quartet (Spain), 1968. New Copy ... $22.99
A very groovy soundtrack from Mario Nascimbene – and one that really shows how much more open-ended his style was than some of his 60s Italian contemporaries! At some moments, Nascimbene has a great ear for moody mellow styles that would be right in line with the best from Piero Piccioni or Bruno Nicolai – but at other times, he brings in some sentimental touches that links his music back to an older era of Italian film scores, while still keeping the instrumentation in the leaner styles of the 60s. Upbeat tracks appear here and there – accenting a few jazzier touches in the music – and instrumentation includes some haunting piano lines, and some great slow-moving organ bits too. Titles include "Le Cafard< 'Summit", "Per Due Parole D'Amore", and "Mots D'Amour". CD

Orgasmo SonoreRevisiting Obscure Film Music Vol 2 ... LP
Cineploit (Austria), 2012. New Copy ... $22.99
A sublime second set of work from Orgasmo Sonore – even hipper than their first, and again a wonderful reworking of soundtrack modes from the Italian scene of the 70s! Compositions here are by Ennio Morricone, Stelvio Cipriani, Piero Piccioni, and others – but the group makes the music very much their own – by transforming the tunes with tighter, funkier instrumentation – almost giving the songs a small combo sort of feel, while still retaining all the majestic charm of the originals! The approach is mindblowing – easily one of the best contemporary experiments of this nature we've ever heard – and the record is pleasing both to ears that love vintage soundtracks, and to those that dig funky instrumentals too. Titles include "Too Risky A Day For A Regatta", "Incubi Ricorrenti", "Metropolis", "Summertime Bossa", "Volto Di Donna", "Pillage", "Les Dunes D'Ostende", "Un Ombra Nell'Ombra", "La Sconda Caccia", and "Pearls".

Despite the cloying title of this one, the set's a very sweet collection of Italian 70's themes with a groovy sexy sound to them. There's perhaps more of a camp feel than usual (if you can believe that!), with sounds that have a bit of a Barbarella-ish feel, or sort of a Euro b-grade erotic quality. There's some nice mellow moments with spare electric keyboards, in sort of a Morricone style, and others with good rolling basslines. Titles include "Louise" and "Theme For A Murderer" by Armando Trovajoli, "La Bella Signora" and "One More Time" by Piero Piccioni, "La Storia Comincia" by Guido De Angelis, "Diamanti Swing" by Francesco De Masi, "What Is This Love" by Franco De Gemini, "Susan & Jane" by Riz Ortolani, and "Il Sorriso Della Ieana M6" by Roberto Pregadio.

Titles include "Incontro All'Aereoporto" by Piero Piccioni, "Allora, Il Treno" by Bruno Nicolai & Edda Dell'Orso, "Avances" by Gerardo Frisina, "Wind" by Red Redford Sound System One, "Bossalonga" by Mustang, "Unreality Landscape" by Angel Pocho Gatti, "Susan Theme" by Daniele Patucchi, "Per Lei" by Stefano Torossi, and "Colpa Tua" by Giancarlo Gazzani.

New Orgasmo SonoreRevisiting Obscure Film Music Vol 2 ... CD
Cineploit (Austria), 2012. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A sublime second set of work from Orgasmo Sonore – even hipper than their first, and again a wonderful reworking of soundtrack modes from the Italian scene of the 70s! Compositions here are by Ennio Morricone, Stelvio Cipriani, Piero Piccioni, and others – but the group makes the music very much their own – by transforming the tunes with tighter, funkier instrumentation – almost giving the songs a small combo sort of feel, while still retaining all the majestic charm of the originals! The approach is mindblowing – easily one of the best contemporary experiments of this nature we've ever heard – and the record is pleasing both to ears that love vintage soundtracks, and to those that dig funky instrumentals too. Titles include "Too Risky A Day For A Regatta", "Incubi Ricorrenti", "Metropolis", "Summertime Bossa", "Volto Di Donna", "Pillage", "Les Dunes D'Ostende", "Un Ombra Nell'Ombra", "La Sconda Caccia", and "Pearls".

New Robby PoitevinTenica Di Un Omicidio/Quella Carogna Dell'Ispettore Sterling ... CD
Cinedelic (Italy), 1966/1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Rare work from composer Robby Poitevin – pulled from two groovy Italian films of the late 60s! Tecnica Di Un Omicidio is a great action score, put together with a heavy dose of jazz – great vibes, flute, and plenty of other horns – blasting out with a hip style over lots of tight percussion – almost in the manner of spy films from the time, but with a lot more complexity at points, almost the depths of a drama, without any of the sleepy moments. The film's represented by 12 tracks here, all of them pretty great, and pretty different from each other – a really fresh batch of music that includes "Alba A New York", "Central Station", "My Man", "L'Ultima Vittima", "Bassifondi", "Clint In Agguato", and "Tecnica Di Un Omicido". Quella Carogna Dell'Ispettore Sterling is a great score to a hip 60s crime thriller – served up with a mod mix of bossa nova, jazz, and some groovier bits – really great music that easily rivals the late 60s greatness of better-known Italian composers like Armando Trovajoli or Piero Piccioni! Some tunes are upbeat and driving – almost in a mod mode – while others have a dreamier style that makes cool use of organ and voice, the latter of which is handled by I Cantori Moderni on two tracks, and Gianfranca Montedoro on one more. There's an odd sort of feel to the music, in ways that have the same sort of charm as the great score for The Tenth Victim, especially in the use of organ. Titles include "Allucianzione", "One More Step", "Alba A San Francisco", "Tema Dell'Ispettore Sterling", and "Adesso Che Hai Vent'Anni". CD

New Carlo SavinaLa Scuola Delle Vergini (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Saimel (Spain), 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really groovy little soundtrack – filled with sweet mod musical elements, including a fair bit of great organ and guitar! The organ is especially nice – used in that stretched-out, almost spooky way you'd hear on some of Piero Piccioni's best soundtracks of the time – still rooted in jazz, but quite different than American use of the instrument – and a great demonstration of the way Italian soundtrack maestros like Carlo Savina could really transform the sound of an instrument, and come up with all these great musical elements in the process! Most of the rhythms are nice and laidback – sexy, but not in a slinky sort of way – and the soundtrack is a real revelation that has us thinking of Savina a lot more highly than usual. Titles include "Esclavas", "Contest Jazz", "Down Left", "Influence", "Valzer Cecko", and "Organo Solo In Un Mattino Di Guerra". CD also features 10 more bonus tracks too – all previously unreleased!

Easy Tempo (Italy), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of our favorite volumes in this now-legendary series – a set of grooves that runs from 70s electric back to 60s groovy – with plenty of space in between! There's a number of cuts on here that feel like they were lifted from lost CTI sessions of the 70s, thanks to warm keyboards and spare, subtle beats – while others mix together mod 60s styles, and even bits of Latin and Brazilian influences! The track selection is sublime, and still one of the best illustrations of the genius of this period – with tracks that include "Diamond Bossa Nova" by Franceso De Masi, "Lady Magnolia" by Piero Umiliani, "Nago" by Luiz Bacalov, "Bob E Hellen" by Piero Umiliani, "North Pole Penguin" by Piero Piccioni, "Beryl's Tune No 2" by Agusto Martelli, "Flute Sequence" by Franco Micalizzi, "Danza Citar Free" by Piero Umiliani, "Honey Rhythm & Blutter" by The Green Future, "Esquetando Os Tambourinos E Cuica" by Sergio Nilo, and "Soul Samba" by Attilio Donadio.

Cinevox (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Tripped out psychedelia from the Italian cinema scene – great stuff from the late 60s through mid 70s – filled with percussion heavy mod rhythms, loads of leftfield oddball flourishes, and pulpy grooves galore! This set was compiled by Carlo Bagnolo and Claudio Fuiano who do a terrific job of assembling trippy, but never too wild stuff by some of the heavyweights of the era, along with some less familiar names – and the tunes are total gems! It's a mostly wordless batch, with some surprisingly funky bass and percussion, loungey horns, strings and flute, and loads of trippier elements at the fringes!

We don't know if this music actually "started" the Italian Lounge scene – because Italy's always been pretty darn loungey to us – but we can say that the package is a great batch of groovy soundtrack tunes, as sparkling musically as the cover is visually! The set pulls together 15 tracks from obscure 60s and 70s soundtracks – featuring work from some of Italy's hipper composers, and focusing on tunes of theirs with an upbeat, bouncy, mod 60s kind of approach!

Cinevox/Saimel (Spain), 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A nude panther? This one already had our attention with the title – and once we heard the music, things got even better – a very groovy blend of jazz and 60s elements by Sandro Brugnolini & Luigi Malatesta – put together in modes that rival some of the better-known Italian scores of the time! The leadoff tune "Gungala" features great English vocals from Pat Starke, alongside some cool-stepping organ – and that organ returns often on other instrumental tracks, almost creating this Piero Piccioni-like mood amidst the strings and some of the more exotic instrumentation! Even when the orchestrations are a bit more conventional, they're still quite striking – and the score is one of those great Italian 60s efforts that seems to offer up new flavors at every twist and turn. Titles include "Il Serpente", "Gungala Serenata", "Tam Tam Marimba", "Gungala Road", "July", "Sabbie Mobili", and "Afro Free". CD

New Carlo SavinaI Due Kennedy/La Donna Degli Altri E Sempre Piu Bella (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Saimel (Spain), 1963/1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two very different soundtracks from Italian maestro Carlo Savina – back to back on a single CD! I Due Kennedy is a film that looks at the late JFK and brother Bobby Kennedy – and is scored by Savina with all the dark, moody, somber tones you might expect – music that definitely has a feel that's funereal, yet in a respectful way too. The original album's eight tracks are expanded here by a dozen more – and the bonus tracks are almost even more amazing – as they've got some more dynamic instrumentation that almost remind us of early 60s TV drama jazz scoring. Titles include "I Due Kennedy", "Memento Blues", "L'Ultimo West", "Sgomento", "Il Tragico Passato", and "La Casa Blanca". Next is La Donna Degli – a wonderful early 60s comedy soundtrack by Carlo Savino – filled with groovy little numbers that range from bossa novas, to slinky jazz, to some even more mysterious instrumental passages – all in a mode that's like some of the best Piero Piccioni scores of the time! There's a nice mix of playful passages and mod little groovers – and the CD features a total of 11 tracks from the film. CD
