Wonderful work from one of the grooviest soundtrack composers ever! At the end of the 60s, Piero Umiliani wrote some of the best film scores to come out of the Italian scene – and this little gem, long out of print, is certainly one of them! The album's got some beautifully jazzy numbers – touched by all the right elements of whimsy and sexiness that make Umiliani's other work so great – and the short little tracks on the album offer up a blend of slinky themes that intertwine wonderfully, moving from groove to sleaze, but always handled with the highest of class and care! Titles include "Trappola Sentimentale", "Crystal", "To Seek", "Consequence", "Un Posto Per Un Addio", "Continuita", and the sublime "Bob & Helen", which has been a favorite of remixers for years! CD features 11 bonus tracks – for a total of 25 numbers in all!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Il Marchio Di Kriminal
Beat (Italy), 1967. New Copy
A great entry in the Kriminal series of films – one that features some wonderfully groovy work from Piero Umiliani! The music here is Umiliani at his most playful – rooted in jazz, but with warmer touches from bossa and other mod 60s Italian styles too – sometimes set to wordless ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1978. New Copy
A wild one from Italian soundtrack composer Piero Umiliani – a set that definitely lives up to the disco promise of the title, but which still has some of the cool playful touches of Umiliani's work in movies too! The record may well be the funkiest that Piero ever cut – and was done ... CD
Leonor
GDM (Italy), 1975. New Copy
A surprisingly warm soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – especially considering it was penned for a creepy film about medieval vampirism! The music has a bit of a period feel – mostly through some use of light woodwind or lute-like stringed instrumentation at points – but the ... CD
Slalom
GDM (Italy), 1965. New Copy
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 ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
A fab collection of classic soundtrack work from the legendary Piero Umiliani – pulled from his best film scores of the late 60s and early 70s! The collection really goes for the best side of the Umiliani groove – Piero's wonderful talent for mixing together breezy rhythms, jazzy ... CD
La Donna Della Domenica
Cinevox (Italy), 1975. New Copy
A beautifully building score from Ennio Morricone – one that's filled with tracks that start out slow, then layer on elements in a really wonderful way! The main theme is a bit dreamy, but some others are a bit dark – and are done in an arry of jagged sounds and offbeat instrumental ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1979. New Copy
An overlooked late 70s score from Ennio Morricone – and one with a fair bit of early 70s styles in the music! The tunes here are a mix of some of the darker, brooding Morricone moments you'd get in thrillers – with some of the lighter, more melodic themes that always stand out – ... CD
Nell' Anno Del Signore
Cinevox (Italy), 1969. New Copy
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 ... CD
Cinevox/Quartet (Spain), 1976. New Copy 2CDs
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 ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1971. New Copy
A fantastically dark Morricone score! Morricone originally wrote this material for the film Quattro Mosche Di Velluto Grigio, the third part of Dario Argento's cult terror trilogy – and until the release of this CD reissue, only 2 of the tracks ever made it to the public, on a rare single ...
