Calibro 35CLBR35 Live From Space ... CD
Record Kicks (Italy), 2016. Used ... $8.99
Calibro 35 have always had a soundtrack style to their music – but here, they seem to hit an even trippier, spacier version of the mode – playing an all-live, all-instrumental set that's bubbling over with loads of wonderful elements! Some tracks are still as funky as before, but others really show the group finding their own sort of bigger picture sound – writing and playing with complexity that allows for some nicely dark corners, while still keeping the overall sound nice and lively! The music's not in that retro-horror mode that some groups are using these days – and instead is more funk at the core, but with lots of cool electric inflections from keyboards that include an Eko Tiger, clavinet, and Korg microsynth – alongside more familiar guitar, sax, flute, trumpet, and trombone. Titles include "Across The 111th Sun", "Ungwana Bay Launch Complex", "An Asteroid Called Death", "Serenade For A Satellite", "A Fistful Of Lead", "Notte In Bovisa", "La Mala Ordina", and "Eurocrime".

Calibro 35Sogni Di Gloria ... CD
Tannen (Italy), 2014. Used ... $4.99
Calibro 35 move strongly into the world of actual soundtrack music – after a number of albums that had them taking on classic sounds of Italian cinema – and the result is a set that might well be one of the strongest the group has ever cut! The core small combo approach is still the group's calling card – tight drums, compelling guitar lines, and plenty of sweet organ and keyboards – but the tracks are maybe a bit shorter and more compact, which makes the whole thing work together even more strongly as a whole – a suite of grooves from a group who really know what they're doing. Titles include "La Visione D'Assieme", "La Partita", "Tema Malinconico", "Tema Dello Sbattezzato", "Come Un Valzer", "Notturno", "Il Tempo Che Non Ho Vissuto", and "Tema Malinconico (solo Rhodes)".

✨✧ Dining RoomsTre (US version) ... CD
Guidance, 2003. Used ... $4.99
The 3rd album by The Dining Rooms – and the best so far! These guys have really matured from earlier outings – moving into a sophisticated realm of downtempo soundscapes crafted with a great deal of care, and which are put together with a lot more than simple tricks and gimmicks. There's loads of really solid tunes in here – sly numbers that sneak up on you with a subtle approach to the craft, gently burrowing in and taking root – somehow making the album that much more compelling overall. A number of tracks have some wonderfully languid vocals, some male and some female – and these tunes fall nicely next to instrumental numbers with a very evocative approach. Titles include "Anima Per Amarti", "Tunnel", "La Citta Nuda", "Fluxus", "Flamenco Sketches", "Dreamy Smiles", "You", "African Loungesters", and a nice cover of Sun Ra's "Astro Black"! CD

Ennio Morricone & OthersEnnio Morricone Remixes Vol 2 ... CD
Compost (Germany), 2003. Used 2CDs ... Just Sold Out!
A second volume of reworkings of vintage Morricone – this time with an even more profound club bounce than the first! The unofficial theme of the set can pretty much be found in the phrase "Cinematic For The People!" – and that mantra hits home with mixes by a wide, wide variety of producers, DJs, programmers and innovators from Hird, to Eddy & Dus, to Domu, Doctor Rockit, Moonstar and many others – who all take a spin on tracks from The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly, My Name Is Nobody, Once Upon A Time In The West and beyond! The tight electro beats and pulsing synth and keys add a sinister uptempo groove on the best cuts, but they still keep Morricone's epic mood swings well in place! It's a delicate balance, keeping Morricone's cinematic, swirling and soaring groove in check with late model club grooves – leave it to the great minds at Compost Records to pull it off! 27 tracks on two CDs: "Mucchio Selvaggio" by 2Raumwohnung, "L'Estasi Dell-Oro" by Bandini, "A Lidia" by Swell Session, "Tema di Mose" by Crazy Baldheads, "Nadine"(dub mix) by Yen Sung, "Alla Serenita" (Lazer Sight mix)" by Domu, "Sotto Controllo" by Ayro, "Ritratto d'Autore" by Moonstarr, "La Cugina" by Yukihiro Fukutomi and lots more!

Papik & OthersCocktail Mina ... CD
Irma (Italy), 2015. Used ... $11.99
A lovely little album dedicated to the famous Italian singer Mina – a vocalist with an incredible range, and an artist who made some incredibly groovy work back in the 60s and 70s! The style here isn't just a rehash of Mina's hits – but a reworking of those ideas into some more contemporary soulful styles that really fit the Irma Records placement of the set – as the whole thing's got that warm glow and surprisingly international feel we first loved in the Irma label many years back! Vocals are mostly in Italian this time – given the source material – but Papik's backings are nice and jazzy, with a few smoother soul currents too. Singers include Stefy Gamboni, Marco Armani, Katia Rizzo, Francesca Gramegna, Vittoria Siggillino, and Bengi – and titles include "Citta Vuota", "Improvvisamente", "Grande Grande Grande", "La Banda", "Non Credere", "Soltanto Con La Musica", and "Le 1000 Bolle Blu".
