4.60 12

Great 60s grooves from Carlo Savina – two playful comedic scores from the 60s, both filled with whimsical instrumental touches! Veneri Al Sole is excellent right from the start – with a Piero Piccioni-like blend of jazz, Latin rhythms, and some mod 60s instrumentation – especially on organ, electric harpsichord, and vibes, which both ring out on some of the album's best tracks – in ways that have sonic properties that go way beyond their familiar use! The record's a great example of the way that 60s Italian composers were really changing things around – and that spirit follows strongly on Veneri In Collegio – a set of tracks that's almost more vivid overall – especially in the way it uses wider woodwind passages to flesh out the sound. CD features 26 tracks in all – with great remastering! (Limited edition – with bonus download card.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

I Mongoli
Digitmovies (Italy), 1961. New Copy 2CDs
Mario Nascimbene's soaring soundtrack to I Mongoli – which may one of the most strangely cast movies of its time – but the soundtrack is incredible! The movie is about Genghis Khan's invasion of Poland, and it stars. . .wait for it . . .wait for it . . .Jack Palance and Anita Ekburg! ... CD

Digitmovies (Italy), 1957. New Copy
A mix of old school soundtrack modes from Giorgio Fabor – that great blend of jazzy instrumentation and more sentimental modes that you'd find in Italian films of the 50s! The style's a bit less lean than Italian modes of the next decade, but still very expressive in a way that's different ... CD

Cinedelic (Italy), 1977. New Copy
