Piero PiccioniAl Cinema Con Piero Piccioni Vol 1 (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
RCA/Sonor (Italy), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
A sublime late 60s document of the earlier Italian film themes of Piero Piccioni – all served up here as jazzy instrumentals that take us back to the freshness he brought to Italian soundtracks at the start of the decade! Many of these numbers have a brash Rome jazz sort of vibe – that new sense of small combo energy that was really taking place in the city once things were getting back in shape during the postwar years – music that's got the soulful currents of American hardbop from the 50s, but lots more fresh and lyrical elements over the top – new ways of using flute, tenor, trumpet, organ, and vibes – and a fair bit of inspiration in the rhythms from Brazil and Cuba too. Make no mistake, there's definitely some soundtrack qualities to the music – but more in a Henry Mancini or Lalo Schifrin jazz side of the spectrum. This first volume features selections composed for the films Le Mani Sulla Citta, Chi Lavora E Perduto, Nude Calde E Pure, and Il Terrorista – with titles that include "Waltz Of You", "Flash Back Promenade", "Night Prowl", "Jazz Lover", "Port Royal Blues", "Polvere Fumo", "Eagle", "Gorgon Blues", and "Fast West End".

Piero PiccioniCamille 2000 ... CD
Camille 3000 (Italy), 1970. New Copy ... About June 15, 2018 (delayed)
One of the coolest classics from the glory days of the Italian soundtrack scene – a set that perfectly brings together all the funky, jazz, and mod-styled touches of the great Piero Piccioni – on a record that's maybe had more life over the years than the film did on the screen! The mix of instruments here is completely sublime – with some especially wonderful use of Hammond, but with very offbeat sounds – next to flute, warmer woodwinds, and some wicked basslines that hit the hippest sort of funk soundtrack modes. The recording quality is amazing, too – with unusual isolation and shading used on the instruments, to further make the sound magic – and titles include "Funky Lovers", "Pearls", "Slow Flute Beat", "Charms", "Brasil 2000", "Tears In Brasil", "Camille 2000", and "Tears In Rome". One of our all-time favorites! CD

Piero PiccioniFumo Di Londra (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Bella Casa (UK), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
One of the hippest Italian soundtracks of the 60s – and a motherlode of tracks by the great Piero Piccioni! The soundtrack is the source of the oft-compiled "Mr Dante Fontana", a nutty groover about the mod fashion scene in Italy – and it also features the famous tracks "Richmond Bridge" and "You Never Told Me" – both well-remembered tracks that have directed a number of people to discover Italian soundtrack gems over the years. Most of the music is by Piccioni and the wonderful vocal group I Cantori Moderni – but the set also features some work by Lydia Mac Donald, who's a very groovy singer. LP features the original 1966 album – with the tracks "Mr Dante Fontana", "Drag Beat", "You Never Told Me", "Babylon I'm Comin", "Richmond Bridge", "If Dreams Come True", and "This Is Life" – and also features 6 more bonus tracks in mono!

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!

Piero PiccioniPuppet On A Chain ... CD
Silva Screen, 1970. New Copy ... About July 11, 2017 (delayed)
A very groovy action-based score from composer Piero Piccioni – one of his few non-Italian soundtracks from the time! The music was recorded in swinging London at the end of the 60s – and it's got a mod sound that's very groovy, with Hammond and horns and guitar and electric bass all grooving together, in a mixture of fast catchy tunes, slower moody ones, and a few of those great oddball themes that always make Piccioni's soundtracks so wonderful! The whole thing's been lovingly remastered, with a great package that has images from the film. Titles include "Drugs Hypnosis", "Puppet On A Chain", "Drug Dealers", "Psychedelic Mood", "LSD Party", "Night Club", "Love Theme", and "Troubles In The Big City". CD

Piero PiccioniScusi Lei E Favorevole O Contrario ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1966. New Copy ... $22.99
Beautifully playful music from the great Piero Piccioni – done for a mid 60s film directed by and starring the Italian comedian Alberto Sordi, whose presence on screen is a great match for these sounds! Picconi uses some of his jazzy roots at times – including a cool bit of organ – but also works in some offbeat string passages, sometimes with solo violin doing very unusual things – and other times makes nice use of I Cantori Moderni, whose vocals are always a treat! Most tracks are short, and the score also has some lively, upbeat numbers that offset the dreamier ones in a great way – sometimes even with batucada-like percussion – and this stunning 34 track CD marks the first time that most of this music has ever been issued to the public.

Piero PiccioniSono Un Fenomeno Paranormale ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1985. New Copy 2CD ... $22.99
A late soundtrack from Piero Piccioni, but a great one too – scored for an equally late film in the career of actor Alberto Sordi – and with lots of the jazzy and groovy modes that you might know best from Italian soundtracks of the 60s! Piccioni's got a great ear for a melody here – able to move mellow and sweet one minute, then upbeat and jazzy the next – all at a level that revels in warmer acoustic instrumentation, and avoids that move to heavy electric instrumentation that so many of his contemporaries took when the 80s approached! Make no mistake, there's a bit of electricity here and there – but usually just great guitar lines, or organ, or just the right sort of bassline to give a song a gentle groove. 2CD set is overflowing with bonus tracks – 16 titles from the original album, plus 52 more tracks from film versions and alternate takes – a huge amount of completely delightful music.

Piero PiccioniUna Vita Violenta (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Spettro (Italy), 1962. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $14.99
An early soundtrack from Italian film legend Piero Piccioni – done for one of the earliest movies by Pier Paolo Pasolini, and served up in a mad mix of jazzy styles and larger instrumentation! About half the tracks here have a crime jazz mode that echoes the American scene of the late 50s – particularly those dark, driving elements that were often employed when the scene was gritty and urban – and these numbers are mixed with some very deep-shaded larger ensemble work – rumbling with tension, almost like storm clouds about to burst – which then often leads to the jazzier numbers! There's a great early 60s Rome vibe to the whole thing – and titles include "Jazz Theme Song", "Serenata Cha Cha Cha", "Autoradio", "Valzer Chic", "Vita Violenta", "Easy Calypso", "String Of Pearl Twist", and "Vita Violenta Titoli".

Piero Piccioni/George Garvarentz10th Victim/That Man In Istanbul ... CD
Mainstream/Intrada, 1965. New Copy ... $18.99
A pair of rare Mainstream Records soundtracks from the 60s – back to back on a single CD! First up is The Tenth Victim – also issued in Italy as La Deccima Vittima – one of our favorite soundtracks of all-time!! Piero Piccioni's score for this one is an insane mix of weird grooves, crime jazz, sound effects, and some of the coolest organ riffs you'll ever hear! (At times, we'd swear we were listening to Sun Ra on the keys!) All this fantastic music is the backdrop for an insane film starring Ursula Andress and Marcello Mastroianni that's about a crazy assassin game that's played in the future. If that sounds a bit wild, it is, and the music is in perfect step with the nutty plot. Features the great version of the title theme with vocals by Mina, plus "The Chase", "Spiral Waltz", "The Trap", "Reprieve", "The Pawn", and "Keep Running". That Man In Istanbul is a groovy soundtrack for this 60's international intrigue film starring a young Horst Bucholz! Georges Garvarentz wrote and directed the music, with the sort of flair that he brings to the best of projects like these – and while the stuff's not as funky as his 70's records, there's plenty of great moments – and the tunes have lots of good spy and crime themes! Tracks include "Fight At The Turkish Bath", "Bulldozer Leads The Dance", "Surprise Depot", "Man With The Steel Hand", and "Chase On The Calatma Bridge". CD

Piero Piccioni/Gianni Ferrio/Francesco De MasiToto Diabolicus/Toto Contro I 4/Toto Contro Maciste ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1962/1963. New Copy ... $16.99
A trio of soundtracks from 60s films that starred Italian comedy giant Toto – each of them a bit different, given the change of narrative and composer! Piero Piccioni steps off with 15 tracks from Toto Diabolicus – music that mixes a bit of crime jazz with some of his early explorations of playful melody – served up with instrumentation that's more conventional than some of Piccioni's later material, but still nice and jazzy on a fair bit of tunes! Gianni Ferrio follows with 14 tracks from Toto Contro I 4 – material that partly has the same jazzy vibe as the previous score, but also some of the more pronounced musical whimsy that you'd expect from an Italian comedic soundtrack of the time. The jazzy tracks are great – very much on a par with the Piccioni material, and different than any later Ferrio sounds. Last up are 6 more tracks from Toto Contro Maciste – composed and conducted by Franceso De Masi, with a sound that's maybe the most conventional of all three soundtracks – orchestral drama, mixed with a bit of comedy – underscored with slight military themes to back up the story. 35 tracks in all!

Music for a film about witches – but handled here with sounds that are a lot more dreamy than they are spooky – thanks to the fantastic 60s talents of maestro Piero Piccioni! There's lots of elements here that are kind of an extrapolation of bossa nova styles – both in terms of the melody and rhythms – but the instrumentation and production are Italian cinema at its best – with loads of compressed passages, floating isolated elements, and plenty of those other-worldly touches that can make the best Italian scores of the time sound way more than just the sum of their parts! The main melody is wonderful, and there's plenty of other great moments and groovers too – all packaged into a 14 track collection with really wonderful sound. LP, Vinyl record album

Saimel (Italy), 1960. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A very early soundtrack from maestro Piero Piccioni – and one that's overflowing with jazzy touches too! The music here is for a film about youth – as you'd guess from the cover – but the score has a richer, more mature quality – with lots of those great modern jazz elements that were brewing up on the scene in Rome right at the end of the 60s, crafted by Piero perfectly into these shorter themes for the film! There's definitely some elements that remind us of the jazz soundtracks used by French directors of the new wave – but there's also a lot more Italian touches, particularly in the way that scene had embraced the California cool of the 50s, but opened it up to new tonal possibilities on their own. Sadly, the musicians aren't listed – but we're betting they're all top-shelf talents, maybe from the Basso/Valdambrini scene – and in addition to the 15 tracks of the original soundtrack, the CD features 17 more bonus titles!

Great 60s work from Italian soundtrack maestro Piero Piccioni – featuring 2 different soundtracks for doctor comedies 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!

Quartet (Spain), 1961. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A stunning jazz soundtrack from Piero Piccioni – much more like some of the classic French new wave jazz scores of the late 50s than some of his groovy, mod sounds to come later in the 60s! The instrumentation here is a beautiful mix of piano, bass, vibes, and some occasional stronger horns – used mostly on tracks that are short, but extremely haunting – very evocative, with lots of echoes of American crime jazz, but served up with the more subtle, more tonally rich qualities we love in the early years of Piccioni – stepping here directly from his roots in the Italian jazz scene, and delivering superb sounds throughout! This CD marks the first time the music has ever been issued – as there was an original 45rpm EP scheduled in the 60s, but never issued – and that is presented here with a huge amount of bonus tracks – 31 numbers in all that make for a fantastic soundscape in jazz.

Beat/Sub Ost (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A rare vinyl version of this classic Italian horror soundtrack! Piero Piccioni did the soundtrack for Seven Murders For Scotland Yard – in a style that mixes more dramatic orchestrations with a few great mod touches on organ, flute, and percussion – which step out nicely on the groovier tracks, and bring in a nice note of action and surprise to a score that's mostly tense and poised for danger! These few light bits really offset things nicely – and create an unsettling feel in a work that's pretty darn dark overall, and which shows some of the most somber qualities we've ever heard in Piccioni's music. Titles include "Seven Murders", "Unknown Maniac", "Reminding The Ripper", "Suspecting", "Inspector Campbell", and "Professor Christie" LP, Vinyl record album

The darker, moodier side of the great Piero Piccioni – not the sort of playful music that most people first discover from the maestro – but instead his sometimes-overlooked talent for putting together a nicely spooky soundtrack! The music is sometimes quiet mellow, other times bubbling with a bit of warmth – and Piccioni has a way of balancing the film score between darkness and light that's very much in the best Morricone spirit – yet served up with instrumentation that's quite different in its presentation. Titles include "Helen Where Are You", "It Means Love", "Haunting Memories", "Moonbeams On The Ruins", and "Dreaming Again". LP, Vinyl record album

Piccioni's going for more of an atmospheric approach here with isolated instrumentation drifting over rhythmic string passages, in a way that's halfway between Ennio Morricone and Francis Lai. A few tracks have more whimsical musical touches – and the main theme is played by Roger Williams on piano with chorus backing. Titles include "The Chef", "The Tournament", "The Eggs Are Bewitched", "The Contest", "Prince Rodrigo", and "Rodrigo Leaves The Monastery". LP, Vinyl record album

The sound here is superb – a blend of jazzy, bossa, and slightly funky numbers – all played with plenty of soul, and served up with a sound that easily shows why Italy was one of the hippest music scenes in the world at the end of the 60s. Instrumentation includes snakey sax, slinky keyboards, rumbling percussion, and more – all arranged with plenty of amazing twists and turns that go far beyond any expectations you might have from American cinema of the time! Highlights include a live version of Piero Piccioni's "Colpo Rovente"; work by the swinging vocal group I Cantori Moderni on both "La Ragazza Dalla Dalla Pelle Di Luna" by Piero Umiliani and "L'Uomo Dagli Occhi Di Ghiaccio" by Pepo De Luca & I Marc 4; a Gak Sato edit of "Death Dies" by Goblin; an extended take on "Dancing For You" by Armando Trovajoli; and the sweet cut "Hard Times" by Piero Umiliani. 20 tracks in all – and wonderful throughout!

Four Flies (Italy), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $32.99
Freaky funk from the Italian scene – exactly the kind of grooves that will open your ears if you think that funky sounds can only come from American soul bands or jazz musicians! The music here is filled with heavy drums, tight basslines, and lots of other groovy instrumental touches – offbeat keyboards, riffing guitars, and other instrumentation that's sometimes given these odd psychedelic touches by the studio maestros who were putting together the cuts at the time – some of which were used in obscure soundtracks, and a number of which appear here for the first time ever! This isn't the overly-familiar film music territory of other collections – and instead, most of this music is completely fresh – even for the longtime collector – presented in a great package that includes the cuts "Anastasia Mio Fratello" by Piero Piccioni, "Un Uomo Dalla Pelle Dura" by Carlo Pes, "La Mano Lunga Del Padrino" by Silvano D'Auria, "L'Arbitro" by Guido & Maurizio DeAngelis, "La Liceale Nella Classe Dei Ripetenti" by Gianni Ferrio, "L'Altro Dio" by Alessandro Alessandroni, "Giovane Clan" by Sandro Brugnolini, "La Profonda Luce Dei Sensi" by SEverino Gazzelloni, and "Calamo" by Claudio Tallino.

Cinedelic (Italy), 1966/1968. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare work from composer Robby Poitevin – pulled from two groovy Italian films of the late 60s! Tecnica Di Un Omicidio is a great action score, put together with a heavy dose of jazz – great vibes, flute, and plenty of other horns – blasting out with a hip style over lots of tight percussion – almost in the manner of spy films from the time, but with a lot more complexity at points, almost the depths of a drama, without any of the sleepy moments. The film's represented by 12 tracks here, all of them pretty great, and pretty different from each other – a really fresh batch of music that includes "Alba A New York", "Central Station", "My Man", "L'Ultima Vittima", "Bassifondi", "Clint In Agguato", and "Tecnica Di Un Omicido". Quella Carogna Dell'Ispettore Sterling is a great score to a hip 60s crime thriller – served up with a mod mix of bossa nova, jazz, and some groovier bits – really great music that easily rivals the late 60s greatness of better-known Italian composers like Armando Trovajoli or Piero Piccioni! Some tunes are upbeat and driving – almost in a mod mode – while others have a dreamier style that makes cool use of organ and voice, the latter of which is handled by I Cantori Moderni on two tracks, and Gianfranca Montedoro on one more. There's an odd sort of feel to the music, in ways that have the same sort of charm as the great score for The Tenth Victim, especially in the use of organ. Titles include "Allucianzione", "One More Step", "Alba A San Francisco", "Tema Dell'Ispettore Sterling", and "Adesso Che Hai Vent'Anni". CD

Four Flies (Italy), 1960s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Modern jazz from the Italian scene of the 60s – all of it recorded for film and soundtrack use, and almost none of is released before! The music here shows not just the fantastic advances in film scoring in the 60s, but also the overlooked growth of jazz in Italy at the same time too – shifts in sounds and styles that continue to amaze us – even if most of the commercial recordings never got much global circulation at the time! And these sounds are even more unusual and special than those – recorded by names that you'd recognize as both musicians and composers – and mostly presented in small combo modes that resonate strongly with rare Italian jazz records of the period. Titles include "Tempo Di Charlston" by Enrico Simonetti, "I Nostri Mariti" by Armando Trovajoli, "Amarsi Male" by Silvano Spadaccino, "Un'Ora Per Vivere" by Nino Tassone, "Desideri D'Estate" by Gino Peguri, "La Curruzione" by Giovanni Fusco, "La Donna E Una Cosa Meravigliosa" by Perio Piccioni, "La Ragazzola" by Romano Mussolini, and "Una Jena In Cassaforte" by Gianfranco E Gian Piero Reverberi.

Most of the music here isn't straight jazz – and instead, the cuts mix some strong instrumental solos with groovy, swinging, and upbeat arrangements – that fantastic use of jazz in film scores that the European scene of the 60s really took up and ran with – into places that were often much cooler, much more interesting than American soundtracks of the time! The collection's filled with great little gems that really work well in each others' company – and titles include "Those Lazy Days" by Armando Trovajoli, "Number One Superman" by Piero Piccioni, "Jazz Interludio" by Giorgio Gaslini, "La Preda" by Vince Tempera & Franco Bixio, "Astaroth" by Stelvio Cipriani, "Eva" by Michel Legrand, "Una Gita Mancata" by Ennio Morricone, and "Fiacre" by Georges Delerue.

Easy Tempo (Italy), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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. The range of grooves is incredible – with elements that include swinging Hammond organ, breezy wordless vocals, spare sax and reeds, cool vibes, and just about anything else the Italian soundtrack composers of the 60s and 70s could get their hands on! 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.
