Piero PiccioniBora Bora (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $10.99
A great relic from the vinyl years of Cinevox records – a special album that serves up the Piero Piccioni version of the score for the film Bora Bora – later scored by Les Baxter for the US release of the movie! For the set, Piccioni put together these brooding, subtle sounds that are then expanded nicely in orchestrations by Bruno Nicolai – almost a bit fuller on orchestrations than usual for Italian scores of this time – but also filled with cool percussion, exotic instrumentation, and other cool touches that really make the music shine! Titles include "Bora Bora", "Tamoure Festival", "Tamoure Nella Sera", "Eros In Hiro", "Tahiti Tamore", and "I'Sola Incanta". CD features 18 more bonus tracks – alternate versions and more! CD

Piero PiccioniFermate Il Mondo – Voclio Scendere ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1970. New Copy ... $16.99
There's loads of great organ in this obscure soundtrack from Piero Piccioni – Hammond played with all these cool flutters and weird tones – and mixed with some playful horn passages too! The music moves between groovy styles and whimsical ones – jumping back and forth throughout the album's short tracks – and the groovier ones are extra-heavy on organ, which is handled in a way that's quite a change from the use of the instrument in jazz! There's much more of a sense of variety here than on other Piccioni soundtracks – which means that the album's 16 titles will give you plenty to discover. CD

Piero PiccioniFighting Back (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1982. New Copy 2CD ... $25.99
An unusual later soundtrack from Italian maestro Piero Piccioni – scored for an early 80s American thriller with Tom Skerritt in the lead – and done in a style that's much deeper than you'd expect! The core film score features a blend of melancholy strings that move along in some very moody passages – mixed with other numbers that carry more familiar currents of the jazz funk used in other thrillers of the period – kind of a Lalo Schifrin style at some points, mixed with the larger numbers that give a bluer feel to key moments. These funk tracks are a surprising change from Piccioni – almost more CTI in style at points – and they come into even greater play on the huge amount of unused tracks that are included in this 2CD collection – a total of 49 bonus tracks, in addition to the 15 titles that made up the original score. Together, the package delivers a whopping amount of music – along with full notes in English, and lots of images from the film! CD

✨✧ Piero PiccioniI Giovani Tigri ... CD
Dagored (Italy), 1968. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A wild, late 60s soundtrack by maestro Piero Piccioni to the Italian rebellious teen/speed racing flick I Giovani Tigri, aka The Young Tigers! The mood ranges from groovy little mod arrangements on organ, bass and vibes, to wildly flailing jazzy drum work and horn arrangements. It's very cool stuff – with a great little groovy late 60s feel in the quieter spots, and an enormously colorful psychedelic jazz feel in the wilder moments! Tracks include various versions/suites on the films characters and themes "Abigaille", "I Giovani Tigri" and "Estate". 16 tracks in all! CD

Piero PiccioniI Tre Volti (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Legend (Italy), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99
An unusual soundtrack for a very unusual film – one that features the lovely Soraya in three different stories, each of which seem to get a different musical treatment in the hands of Piero Piccioni! Some numbers are moody and mellow – maybe more conventionally romantic, and handled by Piccioni with these beautifully swirling strings – but some of the others are nicely playful, and evoke qualities that would show up even more strongly in some of his later 60s work, with some nicely groovy touches. The whole thing's got the sense of class you'd expect from the image on the title – and tracks include the lovely "Bossa Nova On The Sand", plus "Amanti Celebri", "Nebulosa", "Gondola", "Latin Lover", "Lost Life", and "Waltz A La Ravel". CD features 11 bonus tracks too – including a nice bossa number, a jazzy track, and even one with some cool harpsichord! CD

Piero PiccioniLa Spina Dorsale Del Diavolo (The Deserter) ... CD
Legend (Italy), 1970. New Copy ... $18.99
A cool and oddly complex score from Piero Piccioni to film La Spina Sorsale Del Diavolo, aka The Deserter – a mix of orchestral movements, jazzier touches and tense western string accents! There's definitely a spaghetti score vibe to the record – but there's so much more going on, too – including some very elaborate waves of color and tone, which are balanced with more dramatically punctuated numbers! Strings step in fully at some points, while percussion dominates at others – and there's a sense of isolation in some of the numbers that's especially brilliant. This expanded soundtrack features material from once lost stereo master tapes of the original sessions. Includes "The Ambush", "The Escape", "Act Of Courage", "The Devil's Backbone", "The Fort", "Deserters", "The Camp", "Nocturne", "To The Border", and "Dangerous Mission". Almost 75 minutes of music!

Piero PiccioniLa Viaccia (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Saimel (Italy), 1961. New Copy ... $14.99
An early soundtrack from the great Piero Piccioni – and one that's a lot darker than some of his later music, too – thanks to a slow progression of moody strings and offbeat reed passages – often exploring the bluer tones of the spectrum, but in a way that's more modern than soulful! There's quite a bit of abstraction in the music – a sophistication that almost leans on 20th Century classical, but a bit less atonal – and as things build, Piccioni finds a way to weave in some slightly redemptive strands of melody, which stand out beautifully in the larger tapestry of sound. Titles include variations on the themes "La Viaccia" and "Rapsodia Per Sax E Orchestra" – and CD features 34 tracks in all, including 15 unused titles that appear here for the first time! CD

Piero PiccioniLe Mani Sulla Citta (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Dagored (Italy), 1962. New Copy ... $25.99
A great early soundtrack from Piero Piccioni – handled by the maestro in a mix of jazz and some of the groovier touches he'd bring to his late 60s scores – really changing things up nicely between some piano-led groovers, organ numbers, and a few other tunes that use this really great echoey electric bass – quite sinister, but really propulsive too! The album's a great one from that time when the Italian scene was still reveling in crime jazz, but also developing new ideas too – and this release of the music makes the first time that more than just a few of the tracks from the original EP have appeared on vinyl. Titles include "Banda", "Lounge Music", "Notte Di Rod", and "Le Mani Sulla Citta" – plus other variations on those titles. LP, Vinyl record album

Piero PiccioniMinnesota Clay ... CD
CAM (Italy), 1964. Used ... $13.99
We haven't heard that many western soundtracks from Piero Piccioni over the years – and we've gotta admit that this one's pretty darn compelling! There's definitely a western flavor to the music, but the set also shows plenty traces of Piccioni's early 60s jazz scoring as well – not straight jazz, but with the kind of horn passages and larger arrangements we know from Piero's work of that nature – mixed with more brooding or dramatic passages to fit the western theme. Production often makes good use of echo – especially around the basslines – which helps the sound crescendo nicely, when needed! Titles include "Minnesota Sky", "Sidewinder", "Sombrero", "Long Neck", "Jackie", "Saddle Sack", and "River Bed". CD

Piero PiccioniMusica Amore ... LP
General/Cinedelic (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
The music of love from the great Piero Piccioni – served up here in a set that's right up there with his best soundtracks of the early 70s! The sounds come from a wonderful Piccioni array of instrumentation – some heavy Hammond here, a bit of soaring strings there – all set to offbeat, unusual arrangements that make these tunes sound a hell of a lot fresher than anything coming from the American instrumental scene at the time! There's still a few groovy echoes of Piero's mod 60s years – mixed with fantastic 70s charts that go even deeper, and which maybe make the record one of our favorites ever from the maestro – thanks to some currents of jazz and bossa from time to time. Shawn Robinson sings great soul vocals on the tunes "Right Or Wrong" and "Once & Again" – and other instrumental tracks include "Play Girl", "War Love Call", "Fiore Nero", "Ebony Rider", "Easy Dreamer", and "TNT Dance".

Piero PiccioniSe Incontri Sartana Prega Per La Tua Morte ... CD
Point (Italy), 1968. Used ... $14.99
A western score by Piero Piccioni, but one with the same groovy sound as most of his other great soundtracks! Despite the obvious cowboy nature of the film, there's lots of elements in here you wouldn't expect from a western score – like cool bubbling organ, and some very nice spare bass work – all used with the same inventive Piccioni styles we've come to love in his comedy and thriller scores of the time! Many tunes are somewhat spare – without the fuller orchestrations of other western compositions – and if you were to pull this one away from the images on the package, you might have a tough time guessing the sort of film the music was used in.

Digitmovies (Italy), 1987/1988. New Copy 2CD ... $13.99
A pair of 80s Italian soundtracks – served up here in a double length set, with a heck of a lot of bonus tracks too! First up is Piero Piccioni's big score for Un Tassinaro A New York – aka Taxi Driver in New York, a follow-up to the first Alberto Sordi Tassinaro film – scored by Picconi with a style that's surprisingly warm and sweet for an 80s comedy – maybe more strings than you'd expect, and a fair bit of jazz, too! There's a few whimsical numbers, but most of the instrumentation is full and rich – without some of those tinnier moments that comedies of the period could sometimes hit. CD features a whopping 36 tracks of music by Piccioni – the full album, and lots of bonus film versions and alternates! Next up is Una Botta Di Vita – an 80s soundtrack by Manuel De Sica, and scored at a level that certainly shows he hadn't lost his touch! The main theme is pretty lively, with almost a tropical sort of vibe – to fit the beach setting of some of the movie – and the CD serves up 14 variations on the theme, all with different styles – one sax-heavy, one with a trombone, one with a disco groove, and so on!

✨✧ Piero PiccioniGiovinezza Giovinezza ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1969. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little score from Piero Piccioni – penned for a late 60s Italian film with a relatively sentimental vibe – but handled by the maestro with a quality that's far deeper than you might expect! The leadoff melody certainly echoes the story, but it already has some of those unusual musical inflections that can make Italian scoring of the 60s so much more compelling than Hollywood material – and as the set moves on, Piccioni works in these beautiful subtle sounds that are wonderful – very different than some of his more whimsical work, but filled with an equally unique ear for unusual elements, and those hard-to-decipher sonic elements that really hold our attention! A few cuts hit a mellow, moody vibe – while others are a bit more punchy – breezy moments balanced with drama and jazz – over the course of 26 titles in all. CD

Cool organ lines, wonderful keyboards, and lots of other great bits – all stepping out in a double-length set that's completely sublime – and maybe some of the best work we've ever heard from the mighty Piero Piccioni! The score is as sexy as you'd guess from the cover – and definitely has those bossa and jazz elements from the Morricone generation of Italian soundtrack work, too – yet it also has these interesting offbeat touches that are pure Piccioni right from the start – that great ear for odd tunings and unusual phrases that really keeps things interesting all the way through, and which makes the record so sublime from both a musical perspective and a sonic one! 2CD set features over two hours of music from this rare score – a number of which feature haunting wordless vocals from the lovely Edda Dell'Orso.

El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Early soundtrack work from the great Piero Piccioni – heard here on his famous score for the film Mafioso, plus some even cooler more obscure work! The set begins with some jazzy numbers for the film Il Mondo Di Notte Numero 2 – as well as a bold jazz cut from Adua E La Compagne – then moves into the rich score for Mafioso – which has a sardonic blend of darkness and comedy to really fit the narrative of the film. Jazzy elements still pervade in that store – and show up throughout the rest of the CD – which features work from Senilita, L'Imprevisto, Guendalina, and I Magiliari. The set then finishes with a full vocal album – Piero Piccioni Presenta Lydia MacDonald – a great jazz vocal album with English language lyrics by singer Lydia MacDonald! CD

Beat (Italy), 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great 60s work from Italian soundtrack maestro Piero Piccioni – featuring a score for a doctor comedy that starred the great Alberto Soldi! The music is a wonderful blend of the lighter side of styles that Piccioni worked in – with a bit of jazz, a bit of bossa, and often some nice wordless vocals that drift across the mix with a really lovely feel! Edda Dell'Orso is the singer on those cuts – as you might guess – and the album also features great work from I Cantori Moderni, too. Titles include the tremendous groovers "Fortuna", "Samba Fortuna", and "Fortune Blues" – and other tracks include "Lady Love", "Slow Lady", "Final", "Sirenette", and "Esculapio", a nice horn-heavy theme tune! CD features lots of bonus tracks, too – the full original album, plus 10 more bonus numbers. CD

Liuto/Schema (Italy), 1971. New Copy ... $21.99
Heavy fuzz with a good deal of funk as well – a very unique set from the Italian sound library scene – and one that comes across with the feel of some lost psych record from the underground! The album was produced by Piero Piccioni – and features soundtrack/sound library maestros Alessandro Alessandroni and Oronzo De Filippi, working as the pseudonymous Braen and Gisteri – in a batch of heavy drums and basslines, topped with lots of fuzzed up guitar – but all with a tightness that's a lot more forward-moving than the usual set of this nature! Things never get to overdone, but still go plenty far out – and titles include "Flying", "Imphormal", "Murder", "Gap", "New Experiences", "Fall Out", "Description", and "Obstinacy".

✨✧ Giovanni FuscoDeserto Rosso ... LP
Contempo (Italy), 1964. New Copy (reissue)... About March 1, 2017
One of the weirdest, wildest soundtracks we've heard from the Italian scene of the 60s – a score that has lots of cool electronic touches from Vittorio Gelmetti, who brings in some really moody moments at times! Also unusual is the use of a wordless female voice – not in a style that's as melodic as Edda Dell'Orso, but almost electronic in itself – which creates some almost-Eraserhead moments when mixed with the electronics! Yet other passages are jazzy, or more familiar – which makes the whole thing come across as this incredible pastiche of sounds that's quite unusual – on titles that include "Astrale", "Happy Surf", "La Favola", and "Nevrosi". Side two features "Il Surf Della Luna" in a suite – with passages by Giovanni Fusco, Piero Umiliani, Piero Piccioni, Gino Marinacci, and Roby Poitevin. LP, Vinyl record album

Neal HeftiOh Dad Poor Dad – Mama's Hung You In The Closet/Boeing Boeing ... CD
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1966/1967. New Copy ... $11.99
A pair of swinging RCA soundtracks from Neal Hefti – back to back on a single CD! Oh Dad Poor Dad is great grooviness from Neal Hefti – working here at the height of his 60s powers! The film stars Robert Morse, Barbara Harris, and Jonathan Winters – and the score's got a 60s screwball approach that mixes organ, woodwinds, percussion, and bits of strings together, all filtered through Hefti's rich style of arrangement. The overall feel is great – with loads of mod mod numbers, dancing around with wonderful rhythms that fall somewhere between bossa and beat. Ttiles include "Boy Girl Calypso", "Into The Sunset", "Spooky Coffins", "Oh Dad Calypso", "The Revolt of Johnathan Rosepettie III", and "Home Movies". Boeing Boeing is a weird comedy directed by John Rich, and starring the unlikely team of Jerry Lewis and Tony Curtis – plus some hotties as stewardesses! The best part, most likely, is this fab soundtrack by Neal Hefti – which has many great touches that result in some extremely groovy material! There's some especially nice numbers on the set that mix organ and guitar with larger backing, creating a sound that's much more like late 60s work by Piero Piccioni than Hefti's usual style. A few tunes are more serious, but overall, the soundtrack's a nice one – and is also graced by an excellent cover that sums up the goofy film with a nice cartoony image. Titles include "More Blues For Bertha", "Senor Boeing", "English Breakfast", "Frenchie", "Girl Chasin", and "Champagne Promises". CD

Beautiful grooves from the Italian scene of the late 60s – definitely one of the lesser-known soundtracks of the time, but work we'd rank right up there with the best by Piero Piccioni or Armando Trovajoli! There's a fair bit of trippy sounds on the record – from fuzzy guitar to weirdly watery keyboards – and tunes move between funky "jerk" and "shake" numbers that almost have a sound library funk feel, to mellower, moodier ones that sometimes feature wordless vocals from the great Edda Dell'Orso! The sound is sublime throughout, and this package adds a lot of extra cuts that were not on the very short original album – making for a total of 20 tracks that include "Poemas", "Bossa Jaguar", "Shake Psycho", "Jerk Beat", "T'Amo", "Le Mani", and "All See Saw".

One of our favorite volumes in this now-legendary series – a set of grooves that runs from 70s electric back to 60s groovy – with plenty of space in between! There's a number of cuts on here that feel like they were lifted from lost CTI sessions of the 70s, thanks to warm keyboards and spare, subtle beats – while others mix together mod 60s styles, and even bits of Latin and Brazilian influences!

Four Flies (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold ... $34.99
A killer compilation of rare Italian soundtrack treasures from the mid 60s to mid 70s – a decade's span of time with myriad groovy influences! Esterno Giorno is the second in a pair (so far...we're hoping for a series) of lovingly assembled soundtrack funk compilations put together by the Four Flies label, who were granted access to long neglected corners of the RCA archives. It's a stylistically fruitful period to say the least, with shades of the mod, psych, funk, soul, prog eras – smartly put together here with common elements holding it together in a cohesive whole – thanks in large part of driving percussion throughout. It's fantastic stuff, most of which has gone unreleased since the films screened back in the day! 16 tracks in all: "Stasera Mi Butto" by Gianfranco Riverberi, "Amore Formula 2" by Guycen, "Nell'Anno Della Luna" by Gino Conte, "Lovemaker" by Armando Trovajoli, "Nude Calde E Pure" by Piero Piccioni, "Un Posto Ideale Per Uccidere" by Bruno Lauzi, "Le Belve" by Nico Fidenco, "Femmina" by Carlo Savina, LP, Vinyl record album

Schema groover Gerardo Frisina serves up a hand-picked batch of 16 tunes, mostly classic numbers from the late 60s and early 70s, pulled from the ranks of Italian soundtrack, jazz, and easy listening albums – all with a flair for making the bossa even groovier than it already is!

The music here certainly has lots of the snapping rhythms and breezy melodies you'll know from classic bossa nova – but the arrangements are often a lot more ambitious, and add in all these cool, groovy, and mod touches – including bits of organ, electric guitar, scat vocals, and other musical elements that resonate strongly with the best modernist vibe of the Italian 60s world of film. Titles include "Anice Nuraghi" by Luis Bacalov, "La Matriarca" by Armando Trovajoli, "Mr Dante Fontana" by Piero Piccioni, "Samba In Tribunale" by Ennio Morricone, "Bob & Hellen" by Piero Umiliani, "Bikini Bossa" by Gianni Dell'Orso, "Il Colpo" by Stelvio Cipriani, "Bossa In California" by Marcello Gigante, "Pedone L'Africano" by Guido & Maurizio DeAngelis, and "Aspetto Ancora Un Giorno" by Piero Piccione.

✨✧ Mario NascimbeneSummit ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A very groovy soundtrack from Mario Nascimbene – and one that really shows how much more open-ended his style was than some of his 60s Italian contemporaries! At some moments, Nascimbene has a great ear for moody mellow styles that would be right in line with the best from Piero Piccioni or Bruno Nicolai – but at other times, he brings in some sentimental touches that links his music back to an older era of Italian film scores, while still keeping the instrumentation in the leaner styles of the 60s. Upbeat tracks appear here and there – accenting a few jazzier touches in the music – and instrumentation includes some haunting piano lines, and some great slow-moving organ bits too. Titles include "Le Cafard", "Summit", "Per Due Parole D'Amore", and "Mots D'Amour". CD

✨✧ VariousEasy Tempo Vol 6 – A Cinematic Jazz Experience ... CD
Easy Tempo (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The Easy Tempo groove is wider than ever here – still plenty funky, but also jazzy and groovy too – with some mod 60s influences filtering into the mix, and even a bit of vocals too! As always, the style is heavy on Italian soundtrack modes – that great blend of bossa, jazz, and other elements that graced so many cinematic excursions of the period – and which have been beautifully re-presented by Easy Tempo over the course of their excellent series. Set features titles that include "Sweden" by Tito Fontana, "Caccia Al Ladro" by Armando Trovajoli, "Tap 5" by Ettore Ballotta, "Notte In Allegria" by Piero Umiliani, "Golden Gate Bridge" by Riz Ortolani, "Gangster Song" by Piero Umiliani, "Ebony Ride" by Piero Piccioni, "Gordon Blues" by Francesco De Masi, "Concerto Blues" by Gianni Ferrio, and "Glad" by Lou Stein Trio.
