✨✧ Ennio MorriconeDimensioni Sonore 1/Sound Dimensions 1 – Musiche Per L'Immagine E L'Immaginazione ... CD
RCA/GDM (Italy), 1972. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic sounds from Ennio Morricone – a rare album of more serious music done for RCA – very much in the darker spirit of his recordings with the Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova! The music here is more avant compositional than some of Morricone's lighter soundtrack material – with especially strong work on strings, showing the way that the maestro learned his sense of offbeat tones and phrasings from the 20th Century classical scene, which he then applied famously to some of his horror scores of the time! The music here definitely has qualities that match the spookier soundtrack 70s material from Morricone – especially his move to horror at the time – and as with just about all of his recordings, there's a fair bit of unusual sounds and elements that are extremely hard to peg in terms of their sources. Titles include "Radiazioni", "Rifrazione", "Fasi", "Proporzionale", "Anagramma", "Antitesi", and "Conduizone". CD
(Limited to 500 copies.)

✨✧ Group (Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza)Feed-Back (with bonus CD) ... LP
RCA/Schema (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy ... $23.99
One of the best records ever from the Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza – an obscure side project of Ennio Morricone and other Italian composers – working here in a freaky, psychedelic setting! The album mixes sonic experiments with fuzzy guitars, freaky keyboards, and some surprisingly funky rhythms at times – at a level that's even more compelling than some of the group's other projects – especially given that the album's three tracks are all quite long, with lots of room for instrumental experimentation! Yet as in some of the best prog work of the period – such as by Can or Faust – there's a sense of focus and groove that really holds the whole thing together. And given that these guys had already had years of experience in the studio – on both sides of the production booth – they really have a wonderful ear for extremely inventive sounds. Titles include "Kumalo", "The Feed-Back", and "Quasars". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the album on CD!)

Gruppo Di Improvvisazione Nuova ConsonanzaAzioni/Reazioni 1967 to 1969 (5LPs/DVD/book) ... LP
Die Schachtel (Germany), Late 60s. New Copy 5LP, DVD & Book ... $119.99
One of the most important documents of this legendary Italian group – a key bridge not only between the worlds of avant composition and free improvisation, but also between the soundtrack and sound library scenes as well! The group were groundbreaking – and still have never been matched today – and worked in a blend of acoustic and electronic elements that came off as something completely fresh and unusual in their hands – qualities that make them every bit as important as the French pioneers of musique concrete, even though they never got the same credit at the time. This package brings together concert performances and improvisations – with members who include Egisto Macchi, Ennio Morricone, Mario Bertoncini, Walter Branchi, Franco Evangelisti, and Frederic Rzewski – as well as a live 1967 performance on DVD, directed by Theo Gallehr. The quantity of material on this package is greater than the previous issue – with more unearthed material – and in addition to the DVD, the whole thing also features a heavy book, with photos and notes in English and Italian. Selections include "Concreto 1", "Kate", "A7-2", "Trio", "A5-3", "Es War Einmal", and "Fili 2" – plus 13 improvisations, and other selections too. (Out Sound, Sound Library) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Junkfood & Enrico GabrielliItalian Masters (deep red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 2016. Sealed (reissue)... $14.99
No junk here – as this hip instrumental group take on the sounds of three Italian soundtrack masters – Ennio Morricone, Piero Umilani, and Armando Trovajoli – all while offering up some very unusual interpretations of their work! The songs are familiar, but the instrumentation is a nice change from simple recasting on keyboards – and instead, these guys use guitar as much as they do some of the older elements – often with some fuzz that brings a current of darkness to the tunes that even exceeds some of the originals! The approach is a bit like that of some of the work on the Cineploit label, but this group is a bit more fully-formed – with trumpet, flute, and bass clarinet from Enrico Gabrielli – and the album also features guest vocals from Edda Dell'Orso on one track too. Titles include "C'Eravamo Tanto Amati", "Masquerade", "Eat It", "Silenzio Nel Caos", "Per Un Pugno Di Dollari", "Gassman Blues", "The Body", and "Conflitti". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova ConsonanzaNuova Consonanza (with bonus CD) ... LP
RCA/Schema (Italy), 1966. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Some of the most striking work we've ever heard from this legendary Italian group – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given the power of their work in the 60s and 70s! The assemblage features important avant garde sounds from Ennio Morricone – and offers up a real look at the roots of the atonal and offbeat musical elements that he'd explore on his famous horror soundtracks – but in a setting that's right out there with the farthest reaches of the experimental scene at the time! As the group's name implies, there's a lot of improvisation going on here – played by musicians who include Morricone on trumpet, Frederic Rzewski on piano, Mario Bertoncini on percussion, John Heineman on trombone, Roland Kayn on Hammond and vibes, Franco Evangelisti on piano and percussion, and Ivan Vandor on tenor sax. Yet the sound is hardly free jazz, either – as there's more of a avant compositional vibe going on – a bit like the sense of chance in the music of John Cage, especially as the instruments and players shift from track to track. Titles include "Quartetto", "Trio Di Fiati", "Improvvisazione Per Cinque", "Improvvisazione Per Otto", "RKBA 1675/1", and the haunting "Cantata", which just features voices processed through filters and reverb!
