Armando TrovajoliIl Vuoto ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1964. New Copy ... $34.99 39.99
Early work from the tremendous Armando Trovajoli, but a set that shows that the maestro was already at the top of his game – coming off of some great experience on the Italian jazz scene of the late 50s, and able to blend that experience with more cinematic modes! The vibe here is different than the soundtrack jazz of Piero Piccioni in the early 60s – more small combo, and more in the mode of a jazz record at times – with very strong interplay between the core group of musicians, and interaction between Trovajoli's piano and the work Carlo Zoffoli on vibraphone, Gino Marinacci on baritone sax and flute, Enzo Grillini on electric guitar, Berto Pisano on double bass. The whole thing's wonderfully groovy – maybe years ahead of its time in terms of color and tone, especially for a soundtrack – and titles include "Evasione", "Etasi", and "Frenesia" – plus a number of variations on the title theme!

✨✧ Armando TrovajoliSeven Golden Men (7 Uomini D'Oro) ... LP
United Artists, Mid 60s. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
A fantastic score from the great Armando Trovajoli – one of his few 60s classics to get any sort of circulation in the US – and one of the best! The album's got loads of scatting vocals by his great group I Cantori Modern – alongside upbeat chase tracks, crime jazz, and even a bit of electric harpsichord too! The music mixes together bubbling organ with swinging vocal riffs by I Cantori Moderni – an excellent little combo directed by Alessandro Alessandroni with a cool breezy vocal style that works perfectly with the other instrumentation. Tracks include "Ping Pong", "Thunder Bolt", "Walk On Home", and "Golden Bricks". LP, Vinyl record album

Armando TrovajoliStraziami Ma Di Baci Saziami ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1968. New Copy ... $19.99 29.99
A light little comedic score from Armando Trovajoli – one that mixes some more traditional instrumentation with the groovier elements he was bringing to other soundtracks at the time! The film uses a bit of mandolin at times, but in comedic themes to echo a cheesier Italian vibe – sometimes echoed by vocals from I Cantori Moderni – while other moments get into that post-bossa style that Trovajoli could do so well, and make for moments that are as playful as they are groovy! Unlike some of Armando's more familiar scores from the period, which often reworked a single theme – this one has a lot of variety, spread out over 24 tracks that include "The Deaf Tailor", "Romantic Country", "Looking For Her", "Heartbreak", "Moonkiss", "Straziami Tango", "Beat Trombone", "Creola", "Straziami Theme", and "Io Ti Sento".

✨✧ Armando TrovajoliLe Dolci Signore ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1967. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful little soundtrack from Armando Trovajoli – the best sort that he did in the 60s, at a time when he and a few other Italian soundtrack artists were helping push things forward from straighter jazz into the sorts of groovy modes that would make their scene stand out from the rest! The tunes are often spare and slinky, with a good amount of space between the notes – but in a way that's different than Morricone, maybe warmer and sweeter, with a great approach that lets you focus on a tinkling piano part, an unusual bassline, an organ riff, or all the other great elements that go into the tunes! The set begins with the swinging "Anyone Can Play" – a nice little vocal number – then runs into a whole host of great instrumentals. CD

Piotr FigielPrzepraszam Czy Tu Bija ... LP
GAD (Poland), 1976. New Copy ... $34.99 36.99
Piotr Figiel may not have the catchiest name in the world – but boy, does he do some very groovy work on this obscure Polish soundtrack from the 70s! The album begins with this jaunty wordless vocal number that feels like it was lifted from an Armando Trovajoli soundtrack – then slides into styles that vary nicely as they move through different funky modes – including a lot of sweet Fender Rhodes lines, some moogy bits, funky drums, and even some heavy guitar! The music is superb – the sort of special discovery we never would have made otherwise, were it not for the ultra-cool Gad label – and titles include "Napad Na Bank", "Dyzkoteka", "Czolowka", "Konfrontacja 1", "Belus", and "Belus Plus Wloch".

Francis LaiMade In France (aka French Themes) ... LP
United Artists (France), Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Really great work from Francis Lai – that famous film composer from the French scene of the 60s and 70s – stepping out here on a host of instrumentals done as a non-soundtrack project! Many of the tunes are themes that Lai did for movies – including some from fairly rare soundtracks – but they're mixed here with non-film tunes, and served up in fresh versions – all of which make for the kind of nicely unified record that shows why Francis was to French cinema what guys like Armando Trovajoli or Stelvio Cipriani were to Italian movies! Titles include "Smic Smac Smoc", "La Fontaine", "Snow Frolic", "I Think Of You", "On Croit Que C'Est L'Amour", "Les Nuits Sont Trop Courtes", "La Solitude", "Les Petroleuses", and "Adagio Por Orgue Choeur & Cordes".

SoundtrackTriple Feature (Casanova '70/Darling/Marriage Italian Style) ... LP
Epic, 1970. Very Good+ ... $6.99
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

✨✧ VariousEasy Tempo Vol 5 – A Slammin' Cinematic Experience ... CD
Easy Tempo (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Slammin's a definite good choice for the title of this one – as this 5th entry in the Easy Tempo series seems even funkier than the other volumes – a set that's got plenty of full-on grooves, hand-picked from the genius Italian soundtrack years of the 60s and 70s! If you're looking for a place to start digging the full range of talents of the maestros of this time, you'd be hard pressed to find a better collection – as the Easy Tempo name always means the best bits from this scene, served up in a package that packs a lot more punch than any single individual soundtrack! Titles include "Loco Love Motor" and "The Frog" by Augusto Martelli, "Montreal Non Stop" and "Anice Nuraghi" by Luiz Bacalov, "L'Arcangelo" by Piero Umiliani, "Running Fast" by Stefano Torossi, "Blazing Magnum" by Armando Trovajoli, "Trop's" by Alberto Baldan Bembo, "Vuca" by Tony Mimms, and "The Chicken" by Dick Oliver.

VariousMusic Is My Life ... LP
Cometa (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $32.99 36.98
Not much of a cover, but that's usually the way it is with the Cometa Sound Library – who provided all the great grooves on this set! Cometa was one of the more obscure sound library labels on the 70s scene – but they also maybe lasted the longest, perhaps because they were small – and they managed to forge relations with some of the best composers from the Italian film scene at the time – who bring to their recordings a wealth of cool instrumental touches and unusual elements that rival our favorite soundtracks! This set follows the full scope of the Cometa sound – some numbers are funky, some are jazzy, some are dreamy, and one even gets a bit disco – and titles include "Il Caso Bebawi" by Berto Pisano, "Colpi Di Piume E Tempesta" by Ennio Morricone, "American Sound" by Alessandro Alessandroni & Sandro Brugnoli, "Macchina D'Amore" by Armando Trovajoli, "Dolce Notte" by Luigi Zito, and "Policeman" by Tito Schipa & Giovanni Tommaso.

✨✧ Kid LocoItalian Job ... CD
Temposphere (Italy), 2008. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first set we've seen from Kid Loco in awhile – and a nice mix of new music and older sounds from Italian film scores! The album's very nicely placed on the Temposphere arm of Easy Tempo – as it features Loco remixes both of newer music from the former label, and some old soundtracks from the latter – topped off with one or two Loco tracks of his own! The whole thing's somewhat understated – never too gimmicky, beat-heavy, or over the top – and although the music is from a range of different sources, the sound is more than unified enough to make the album feel like a Kid Loco record all the way through. Titles include "Crepuscolo Sul Mare" and "La Seduzione (2007 version)" by Kid Loco, "Sessomatto (Kid Loco sexamental mix)" by Armando Trovajoli, "Magic (new experience mix)" by Piero Piccioni, "Lady Magnolia (Belleville B-Boy mix)" by Piero Umiliani, "Fearing Much (Kid Loco's AM session mix)" by Stefano Torossi, "Per Il Disco Che Piu Amo (Kid Loco viva la Rockola mix)" by I Maniaci Dei Dischi, and "Clapsoy (Cumbia Loco mix)" by Gak Sato.

Easy Tempo (Italy), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.

✨✧ VariousEasy Tempo Vol 7 – Bikini Beat ... CD
Easy Tempo (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The bikini beat is a great one here – no simple beach music classics, but a range of mod groovers from the classic years of the Italian soundtrack scene! 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.

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.

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.
