Luis BacalovBacalov In Lounge – Roma Bene/La Percora Nera/Rosamor/Soft & Smooth ... 7-inch
Black Cat (Italy), 1966/1968/1971. New Copy (pic cover)... $11.99
Four very cool groovers from Italian maestro Armando Trovajoli – pressed up here on a limited edition 7" EP, with two tracks that have never been issued before! "Roma Bene" is represented by a rare "shake" version that has some fuzzy guitar that trips out nicely over upbeat grooves – and "La Pecora Nera" gets a cool vocal take from Rocky Roberts, who sings soulfully over the mod rhythms! Side two features a new edit of "Rosamor", sung by Juca Chavez – and the sublime "Soft & Smooth" too. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Gianni Boncompagni, Bruno Canfora, Italo GrecoColpo Di Sole/Spia Spione/Riuscira' Il Nostro Eroe A Ritrovare Il Piu' Grande Diamante Del Mondo ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1966/1967/1968. New Copy ... $16.99
A trio of mid-to-late 60s Italian spy soundtracks – Italo Greco and Gianni Boncompagni's work for Riuscira' Il Nostro Eroe A Ritrovare Il Piu' Grande Diamante Del Mondo, Boncompagni's score for Colo Di Sole, and Bruno Canfora's work for Spia Spione – on one great CD from Beat Records! We'll admit to knowing very little about the films, but we must say, this material is very nicely curated, which shouldn't come as surprise given Beat's always warmly presented film score sets. It covers the genre terrain beautiful, from big scale, action-y orchestras, to stripped down, loungey cocktail jazz and beyond. The material from each of the three soundtracks is comprised of sequences on the title themes. 31 tracks in all! CD

Robby PoitevinTenica Di Un Omicidio/Quella Carogna Dell'Ispettore Sterling ... CD
Cinedelic (Italy), 1966/1968. New Copy ... $16.99
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

Teca & RicardoCade O Povo ... LP
Pulp Flavor/Dare Dare (France), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99
Sweetly jazzy Brazilian grooves from the team of Teca & Ricardo – a lovely album recorded in France in the mid 70s, and unheard for years! The feel here is not that dissimilar from some of the recent work by Tom & Joyce, or classic work by the team of Jaime & Nair – Teca's lovely vocals upfront in the mix, often joined in harmony by Ricardo, with backings that are spare and which include lots of acoustic guitar. Post-bossa jazzy vocals with a slight electric twist – warm and intimate, but with lots of groove-oriented touches! Titles include "Saranda", "Estrela Da Cancao", "Cafune", "Trovaoda", "Pra Que Tanta Explicao", and "Le Son Hante". LP, Vinyl record album

Armando TrovajoliIl Profeta/La Matriarca ... CD
GDM/Cinedelic (Italy), 1968. New Copy ... $16.99
2 of the grooviest soundtracks ever recorded by this Italian genius! For the score to the mod 60s film Il Profeta, Trovajoli adds in some great elements like twanging guitars, trippy sitar, and hammond organ – all of which groove along in kind of a "go go" mode on the set's best numbers, laying out a vision of swinging Italy that really makes us wish we were there! Titles include "Il Profeta", "Abbiamo Capito", and "Topo Di Campagna", all done in a number of versions, making for a total of 16 cuts in all! La Matriarca is even better – built around one lovely little melody, similar to Francis Lai's legendary A Man & A Woman soundtrack! The tune is totally compelling, and is played in a variety of speeds and settings – on organ, electric harpsichord, and piano – all with jaunty little rhythms, and a slightly bossa, slightly Frenchy sound to it. Really wonderful, and the kind of ditty you'll be humming for weeks after you listen to it! There's 9 tracks in all – including "Bossa Nova Remix", "Piano Solo", "Slow Take", "Main Titles", and "Dream Version". 25 cuts in all – with both soundtracks on the CD! CD

Armando TrovajoliItaliani Brava Gente ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1965. New Copy 2CDs ... $12.99
One of the more dramatic 60s soundtracks we've heard from the great Armando Trovajoli – a set of darkly brooding music that's perfect for the film's story of the Axis defeat in Russia during the winter of 1942! Trovajoli's got a really great way with his horns here – using them in this compressed way that really resonates strongly – sometimes with some very low-end energy that's quite striking, and which underscores the deeper feeling of the strings. But even better is the use of harmonica from Franco De Gemini – played here with an eerie, somber quality that's almost even more powerful than some of his work on westerns! This lavish 2CD package features the full soundtrack, plus a bonus CD of 32 more tracks – which means a lot more of Franco De Gemini to love than usual! CD

United Artists, Mid 60s. Sealed ... $29.99
One of the best-ever euro soundtracks on United Artists! Lots of great Italian sixties scoring by Armando Trovajoli, with lots of jazzy crime music (this is a heist movie, apparently), and really cool Swingle Singers-sounding vocals by a group called I.Cantori Moderni. The sound is great, very groovy, and very much along the lines of stuff that you might find on a Crippled Dick or Easy Tempo compilation. Tracks include "Ping Pong", "Thunder Bolt", "Walk On Home", and "Golden Bricks". LP, Vinyl record album

Armando TrovajoliToto E Peppino Divisi A Berlino ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1962. New Copy ... $19.99
A military film, but one with a playful little soundtrack – penned by Armando Trovajoli with just the right sort of comedic touches throughout! The melodies often have this quirky feel – not too far from Nino Rota at the time, and often played on woodwind and piano solos with a stepping quality that's very nice – whimsy that is sometimes matched by more military work on the snare drum – but often used in very gentle ways. The whole thing's pretty sweet – with qualities that really match some of the best Fellini film scores from the same time – quite a surprise compared to Trovajoli's later work! CD features new mastering, and 18 tracks from the film. CD

SoundtrackTriple Feature (Casanova '70/Darling/Marriage Italian Style) ... LP
Epic, 1970. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Wonderfully groovy European soundtrack work – a "triple feature" that contains tunes from the films Casanova 70, Darling, and Marriage Italian Style! The music for Casanova 70 is oddly not credited on the album – but features some excellent jazzy tunes, really swinging with lots of nice horn parts – and a few especially nice numbers that use electric harpsichord and have a very mod 60s feel! Darling is a British film with mellower work – larger orchestrations by John Dankworth – and Marriage Italian Style moves back into the realm of the groovy with a few nice numbers by Armando Trovajoli. Titles include "C'E Un Non So Che", "My Baby's Rockin", "Swinging Lonely", "Running Slow", "Sempre Cosi", "See What's Happening", and "Is That You Again". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousC'era Una Volta Il Western ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99
One of the nicest collections of Italian western soundtracks we've ever seen – and one with an approach that really gets at the best aspects of the genre! The set's got a great ear for the subtler, simpler, sometimes gentler styles used in spaghetti western scores – and it gets past the obvious, overdone, sometimes kitschy modes that seem to dominate other sets. Many titles are pulled from the catalog of Cinevox records, with a few other entries from additional Italian labels – and the package features 40 tracks in all, with titles that include "Seven Men" and "Quanto Costa Morire" by Franceso De Masi, "I Lunghi Giorni Della Vendetta" by Armando Trovajoli, "Gio La Testa" by Ennio Morricone, "Tema Di Clayton" by Pino Donaggio, "I Giorni Della Violenza" by Bruno Nicolai, "Carambola" by Franco Bixio & Fabio Frizzi, "Fantasia Western" by Roberto Pregadio, "Jeff Bloom" by Gianfranco Di Stefano, "Vado Vedo E Sparo" by Carlo Rustichelli, and "Ya Me Voy" by Luiz Bacalov.

Easy Tempo (Italy), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP ... $14.99
Genius! Pure mad genius – and one of the best volumes in this always-great series! After 10 volumes, the folks at Easy Tempo have become incredibly well skilled at picking groovy soundtrack tunes – and this beautiful 20 track package is as much a delight for the ears as it is for the musically-driven mind. The range of grooves is incredible – with elements that include swinging Hammond organ, breezy wordless vocals, spare sax and reeds, cool vibes, and just about anything else the Italian soundtrack composers of the 60s and 70s could get their hands on! Titles include "Swing E Sesso" by Carlo Rustichelli, "On Ce Voit Ce Soir" by Philippe Sarde, "Allora Il Treno" by Bruno Nicolai, "Tough Guys" by Carlo Pes, "Face To Face" by Stelvio Cipriani, "L'Isola Misteriosa" by Piero Piccioni, "Mary's Theme" by Stelvio Cipriani, "Qualcosa Piu Grande Di Noi" by Armando Trovajoli, and "La Pupa Del Gangster" by Piero Umiliani.

New VariousMetti Una Bossa A Cena ... CD
Schema (Italy), 2000. Used ... $9.99
A fantastic collection of rare bossa material from Italy! The set's one of the best we've ever seen of this type, and it's a completely fresh batch of tunes that breaks past a lot of the other Italian compilations of recent years. Some of the artists are familiar names – like Morricone, Piccioni, and Trovajoli – but there's plenty of other artists that we've never even heard before! A few themes are reworkings of familiar soundtrack tunes, but most of the material is original – and done with a sparkling sound that's really great! The grooves are filled with loads of tight drums, bubbling organ, jangly piano, and sweet female vocals in sort of a Morricone-ish tradition. Great stuff, and with 20 excellent tracks that include "Amori Finiti" by Giancarlo Gazzani, "Relief" by The Black Fire, "Rossana" by Armando Trovajoli, "Sometime" by A Santisteban, "Tema Di Linda" by Franco Micalizzi, "Curriculum" by Franco Chiari, "Coronado 990" by Orchestra Henry Stone, "Meditation" by Romano Mussolini, and "Warm Blood" by Tullio Gallo.

A 3-part soundtrack to this 3-part film that features different segments by Fellini, Visconti, and De Sica. The mode is Italian sex comedy – and the styles used here by Trovajoli and Rota are groovy and whimsical – occasionally touched with jazz or jerk/beat modes, but more in the ornate humoresque mode of early 60s Italian scores. Titles in clude "Riffa Cha Cha", "Twist Della Balera", "Soldi Soldi Soldi", "A Spasso Per Roma", and "Slow Di Pupe". LP, Vinyl record album

The poor little millionaire gets a great soundtrack here from Armando Trovajoli – working at a point that's relatively early in his film career – when he was still doing a lot of jazz and other instrumental work on other fronts as well! There's definitely lots of jazz in the mix – with piano solos from Trovajoli himself – and some sweet charts that use some very groovy guitar parts in ways that range from mellow and late nite to more swinging overall. Franco De Gemini plays a nice harmonica solo in a few spots – and the CD features 19 tracks from the film! CD

New Armando TrovajoliSesso Matto – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1972. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Funky grooves, floating vocals, mellow keyboards, and a whole lot more – easily one of the greatest soundtracks ever from the legendary Armando Trovajoli – and certainly one of the grooviest too! There's a sublime quality to this score that's well made Sessomatto one of the best-remembered albums from the glory years of the Italian soundtracks – a sense of space, pacing, and timing that are simply breathtaking – and which are the perfect summation of Trovajoli's earlier experiments in music. As with his score to La Matriarca, the instrumentation here varies often – sometimes a bit of horns, nicely compressed; sometimes a floating harmonica line; sometimes keyboards; and sometimes a funky rhythm topped with vocals – all woven together in a rich pastiche of styles that makes the album one of the deepest soundtracks you'll hope to own from the time. The remastering here is wonderful – way better than the previous Japanese reissues, and done in a way that really isolates the best elements of the music – letting the simple balance of sound and space resonate beautifully, and exposing even more of Trovajoli's genius with a wealth of bonus tracks. These added numbers really open the whole thing up – taking the album way past the familiar "Sessomatto" theme (reworked and remixed for the dancefloor often in later years), and almost creating a mini-movie in sound – with all the requisite scene shifts and drama to match! CD features a whopping 41 tracks in all – with titles that include "Sessomatto", "Signora Sono Le Otto", "Two Happy People", "Ammuri Ammuri", "D'Amore Si Muore", "Un Amore Difficile", "Due Cuori E Una Birra", "Bravo Balli bene", "Scappa Gilda", "Vorrei Che Fosse Amore", "Searching For Something", and "L'Ospite".

Soundtrack funk doesn't get any better than this – thanks to a head-expanding of tracks from the Italian scene of the 60s and 70s – served up with the usual ear for a great cut by the folks at Easy Tempo! The groove here is far from the "easy" you might expect – and most numbers have tight drums, funky basslines, and other heavy elements – all put together with an approach to the music that's far different than anything happening in the US at the time, especially in the way the instruments sound in the end – and in the way that the production techniques make them do really crazy things! Titles include "Parangua" by Luiz Bacalov, "Flirt a Rio" by Piero Umiliani, "Side Sleep" by Berto Pisano, "Little Shakie Girl" by Armando Trovajoli, "Tremendous Stars" by Piero Piccioni, "Under Drama" by Giancarlo Gazzani, "Realta No 5" by Stelvio Cipriani, "So" by Lara Saint Paul, "Israelites" by Capuano, and "Citta Viva" by Ennio Morricone.

This volume is heavy on electric elements – fuzzy guitars, keyboards, and more – all filtered nicely through a range of rhythms from the 60s and the 70s – bossa, jazzy, and funky – filled with amazing twists and turns throughout! The double-length collection is a treasure through and through – easily one of the greatest soundtrack sets we could have hoped for. Tracks include "Teresa L'Illusa" by Riz Ortolani, "Malizie Di Venere" by Gianpiero Reverberi, "Spy Chase" by Bruno Nicolai, "Airport Rock" by Barigozzi Group, "Shake 2000" by Piero Piccioni, "Amanda Blues" by Gianni Ferrio, "Un Detective" by Fred Bongusto, "Katmandu" by Piero Piccioni, "Theme" by Armando Trovajoli, and "La Bambolona" by Luis Bacalov.

Bella Casa (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the key forces in the Italian soundtrack scene of the 60s – finally given their due in a CD of their own! I Cantori Moderni never really made any records on their own, but they were a key part of soundtrack work by some of the best Italian composers of their generation – including Ennio Morricone, Armando Trovajoli, Bruno Nicolai, Piero Umiliani, and Luis Bacalov – all of whom were lucky enough to have the group work on their music! The ensemble is headed by Alessandro Alessandroni – who himself contributed much to soundtracks of the time – and like their maestro, they've got a great way with many styles – from spookier mood music, to sexy erotica, to upbeat, groovy tunes. This 27 track package pulls together some of the best bits from the group's late 60s and early 70s work on Italian soundtracks – music by all the composers listed above, from films that include Theorem, Queimada, Le Foto Proibite, Sette Volte Sette, Lo Scatenato, Maddalena, L'Alibi, Don Giovonni In Sicilia, Metti Una Sera A Cena, Scusi Facciamo L'Amore, and 4 3 2 1 Morte.

The keyboards vary from funky organ to jangly electric harpsichord to sharp-edged piano – and the group's sound is often augmented by some extra horn work. Things are nicely funk and nicely groovy throughout – and although you may have a few tracks by Marc 4 on other comps, this is a great complete release of their work, with plenty of tracks that we've never heard before. Titles include "Silouette", "Jockey", "To Pedal", "Trafalgar Square", "Soho", "Love Theme", "Mato Grosso", "Lua Linda", and "Gare". Great cover, too! LP, Vinyl record album

The vocals are especially great – sung by I Cantori Moderni – but with this harmonizing quality that's warmer and jazzier than their usual work – almost a Four Freshmen/Swingle sort of vibe, but mixed with unique inflections by Trovajoli on Hammond organ and other jazzy instrumentation – usually driven by some sweet snapping snare as well! This great CD version includes 8 previously unreleased bonus tracks, too! Includes "The Getaway", "Seven Times Blues", "The Red Bus", "The Big Brain" "Seven Times Seven", "Jail", "7 Volte 7 (Marcia)" and many more. CD

The soundtrack has a bit of the breezy elements of Trovajoli's 60s material, but also has these great soulful elements too – thanks to vocals from singer Suan, who contributes to about half of the songs on the core album. Armando plays piano, but also brings in lots of sweet 70s keyboards as well – used in soulful styles that are sometimes surprisingly funky – a real change that makes the record a great surprise!

Digitmovies (Italy), 1960/1961. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two early horror soundtracks from Armando Trovajoli – back to back on a single CD! First up is Seddok L'Erede Di Satana (also known as Atom Age Vampire) – a score that's got lots of dark moments, way more so than Trovajoli's later bossa-styled work – with these really odd, offbeat orchestrations often mixed with even more unusual sounds! Things are pretty tense throughout – nice and spare and with the feel that something's about to jump out of the darkness at most moments – and the CD features 18 tracks from the film, remastered with great sound. Next is Lycathropus (aka Werewolf In A Girls Dormitory) – another wonderfully spooky score by Trovajoli, with weird woodwind passages and some other cool sounds that might be electronic, or might just be very inventive use of conventional instruments. A few of the best themes have this forward-cascading piano that's very nice – and the CD features 16 tracks from the film. CD

The Easy Tempo groove is wider than ever here – still plenty funky, but also jazzy and groovy too – with some mod 60s influences filtering into the mix, and even a bit of vocals too! As always, the style is heavy on Italian soundtrack modes – that great blend of bossa, jazz, and other elements that graced so many cinematic excursions of the period – and which have been beautifully re-presented by Easy Tempo over the course of their excellent series. Set features titles that include "Sweden" by Tito Fontana, "Caccia Al Ladro" by Armando Trovajoli, "Tap 5" by Ettore Ballotta, "Notte In Allegria" by Piero Umiliani, "Golden Gate Bridge" by Riz Ortolani, "Gangster Song" by Piero Umiliani, "Ebony Ride" by Piero Piccioni, "Gordon Blues" by Francesco De Masi, "Concerto Blues" by Gianni Ferrio, and "Glad" by Lou Stein Trio.

New Ennio MorriconeSlalom ... CD
GDM (Italy), 1965. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A very groovy early soundtrack by Ennio Morricone – done with a fantastic sound that's made even more wonderful by vocal work from I Cantori Moderni – a hip vocalese group that's kind of the Italian version of The Swingle Singers! The group has sung more famously on soundtracks by Armando Trovajoli – but they sound pretty darn great on this one, leaping along wonderfully over some spy-like themes that often resonate with some 60s mod touches! Morricone's music is often jazzy, and pretty groovy at times too – giving the set a 60s swing that's completely sublime. The structure of this reissue differs greatly from the one on Dagored – as it features 23 shorter tracks – including some previously unreleased numbers – all variations on the "Slalom" and "Sestriere" themes, with sub-headings that include "Una Sera In Albergo", "Marcette Grottesche", "In Pericolo", "Titoli Versione Film", "Un Omicidio Misterioso", "Sperduto A El Cairo I", and "Incontro Magic III".

New Armando TrovajoliChe Fine Ha Fatto Toto Baby?/Gli Onorevoli (with bonus download card) ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1963/1964. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Very groovy early work from Armando Trovajoli – two early 60s film scores, back to back on a single CD! Che Fine Ha Fatto Toto Baby has all the great jaunty jazzy elements we love in Trovajoli's late 60s material – that keen ear for cool sounds and unusual phrases, but never in a way that's too offbeat to swing – sometimes mixed here with slightly mellower passages that have some especially great sonic elements! A few tunes have great vocals by I Cantori Moderni – and the CD features 12 tracks from the film. I Cantori Moderni return on Gli Onorevoli – singing on a few nice tunes, which are nestled alongside some equally playful instrumental passages! Orchestrations are relatively full, but still jazzy, swinging, and sparkling with those great Trovajoli touches – and the CD features 13 tracks from the film. CD

New Armando TrovajoliIl Vichingo Venuto Dal Sud/L'Uccello Migratore ... CD
Saimel (Spain), 1971/1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of early 70s soundtracks from Armando Trovajoli – both of them overlooked, and both of them pretty darn groovy! Il Vichingo Venuto Dal Sud has a jangly English-language theme at the start – but then soon drifts into wonderfully mellow territory that mixes jazzy Fender Rhodes with bits of strings – elements used in ways that shift from cut to cut, with the keyboards echoing Trovajoli modes of the late 60s, while the strings underscore some slightly more serious emotion – but in a nice way! Vocal tunes include "Limited Concern" and "Jingles On My Mind". L'Uccello Migratore has a pretty cool 70s vibe throughout – bits of keyboard, guitar, and electric bass used in modes that shift from sunny to trippy to mellow – often with these little flourishes that really live up to all we've come to love from Armando, especially some of his best groovy 70s material. The few vocal tunes have a cool Sunshine Pop feel – and titles include "The Sun Is Shining On My Head", "L'Uccello Migratore", "Incontro Informale", and "Little Safari". CD

New Armando TrovajoliNell' Anno Del Signore ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A bit less groovy than some of the other Armando Trovajoli scores of the late 60s – but a soundtrack that's still got some wonderful musical moments! The film's a period piece, and the instrumentation is somewhat more traditional than some of Trovajoli's modder or bossa moments – but the change is a nice one, and shows a richer, more complicated side of his music – especially on the few tracks that feature vocals from the lovely Edda Dell'Orso. Titles include "Nell Anno Del Signore", "Addio", "I Carbonari", "Paolina", "Tema De Giuditta", "Sapessi Quanto Amore", and "Coro Della Morte". CD also features a 1998 solo piano recording of "Serenata Per Giuditta" – and the bonus suite of tracks "Nell Anno Del Signore". CD

New VariousEasy Tempo Vol 9 – The Ultimate Cinematic Compendium ... CD
Easy Tempo (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A Guido Crepax cover, and a batch of amazing soundtrack grooves – all wrapped up wonderfully as the 9th installment in the all-great Easy Tempo series! The sound here is superb – a blend of jazzy, bossa, and slightly funky numbers – all played with plenty of soul, and served up with a sound that easily shows why Italy was one of the hippest music scenes in the world at the end of the 60s. Instrumentation includes snakey sax, slinky keyboards, rumbling percussion, and more – all arranged with plenty of amazing twists and turns that go far beyond any expectations you might have from American cinema of the time! Highlights include a live version of Piero Piccioni's "Colpo Rovente"; work by the swinging vocal group I Cantori Moderni on both "La Ragazza Dalla Dalla Pelle Di Luna" by Piero Umiliani and "L'Uomo Dagli Occhi Di Ghiaccio" by Pepo De Luca & I Marc 4; a Gak Sato edit of "Death Dies" by Goblin; an extended take on "Dancing For You" by Armando Trovajoli; and the sweet cut "Hard Times" by Piero Umiliani. 20 tracks in all – and wonderful throughout!

New VariousMetti Una Bossa A Cena ... CD
Schema (Italy), 2000. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic collection of rare bossa material from Italy! The set's one of the best we've ever seen of this type, and it's a completely fresh batch of tunes that breaks past a lot of the other Italian compilations of recent years. Some of the artists are familiar names – like Morricone, Piccioni, and Trovajoli – but there's plenty of other artists that we've never even heard before! A few themes are reworkings of familiar soundtrack tunes, but most of the material is original – and done with a sparkling sound that's really great! The grooves are filled with loads of tight drums, bubbling organ, jangly piano, and sweet female vocals in sort of a Morricone-ish tradition. Great stuff, and with 20 excellent tracks that include "Amori Finiti" by Giancarlo Gazzani, "Relief" by The Black Fire, "Rossana" by Armando Trovajoli, "Sometime" by A Santisteban, "Tema Di Linda" by Franco Micalizzi, "Curriculum" by Franco Chiari, "Coronado 990" by Orchestra Henry Stone, "Meditation" by Romano Mussolini, and "Warm Blood" by Tullio Gallo.

New VariousSessomatto Experience ... CD
Easy Tempo (Italy), 1997. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Full length CD that features a huge range of different talents all remixing the classic Italian soundtrack cut "Sessomatto" by Armando Trovajoli (which was included on Easy Tempo Vol 1). The set's got the full original version, plus cool remixes by Raphael Sebbag of U.F.O., DJ Smash, The Karminsky Brothers, Claudio Coccoluto, and other modern mixologists dedicated to transforming this classic jazzy bossa groove. Despite the repetition, the sound varies from track to track, and the release works well enough as a full-length LP with a sound that's in keeping with the rest of the Easy Tempo catalog. CD
