Piero PiccioniFumo Di Londra (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Bella Casa (UK), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
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!

Piero PiccioniGiovinezza Giovinezza ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1969. New Copy ... $18.99
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

Piero PiccioniI Dolci Inganni (Les Adolescentes) (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Saimel (Italy), 1960. New Copy ... $22.99
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!

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 PiccioniSette Cadaveri Per Scotland Yard (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Beat/Sub Ost (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
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

Delightful work from one of our favorite composers ever – the magical Piero Piccioni, an Italian soundtrack genius beyond compare!

Piero PiccioniUna Tomba Aperta Una Bara Vuota ... LP
Beat/Subsound (Italy), Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
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

Piero PiccioniUna Vita Violenta (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Spettro (Italy), 1962. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $28.99
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/Gianni Ferrio/Francesco De MasiToto Diabolicus/Toto Contro I 4/Toto Contro Maciste ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1962/1963. New Copy ... $21.99
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!

Piero Piccioni/Roger WilliamsMore Than A Miracle ... LP
MGM, Early 70s. Sealed ... $4.99
A dreamy little soundtrack by Piero Piccioni – not as mad as some of his more famous Italian work, but with plenty of nice touches! 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

✨✧ Piero PiccioniCadaveri Eccellenti ... LP
GDM/Dagored (Italy), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great work from the legendary Piero Piccioni – working here on a 70s score, but one that also has some of the jazzy elements of his earliest music for films! The jazz elements come as a nice surprise, and are balanced with some groovier elements too – moving nicely between straight jazz and some of the bouncier soundtrack moments you might expect from later Piccioni scores – even opening up to a few bits of 70s funk! Organ is used nicely on both sorts of tracks – and the jazz tunes feature some standout horn solos – from players who aren't named in the notes, but who we're guessing are the sorts of Italian jazz luminaries that Piero worked with during his early days. Titles include "Round Game", "Contesto", "Project For A Dream", "Kress", "Black Connection", and "Dead Stars & Flowers". LP, Vinyl record album

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

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.

Digitmovies (Italy), 1966. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.

One of the first great soundtracks we ever heard from Piero Piccioni – and still one of the best! Colpo Rovente has this really special sort of sound – jazzy, but not really jazz – bassy, but not really funky – and often done with spare, stark sounds – but never in a way that's too atonal or horror-based either! Piccioni brought a really special sort of genius to the record – a way of using each instrument with a very unusual sound or tuning – and isolating each element in just the right way, but with a different style than that used by Morricone at the time. Some tracks get nice and groovy, but lots more hang back in a style that's almost pensive – and titles include "Kintabu", "Colpo Rovente", "Easy Dreamer", "Chinatown Drugs", and "LSD".

Cinevox (Italy), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sublime work from Piero Piccioni – a really Morricone-like soundtrack, and one that's filled with hauntingly beautiful melodies! There's a lightly gliding feel to the record that's really wonderful – light lines on organ, topped with wordless vocals from Edda Dell'Orso and I Cantori Moderni, alternating to suit the mood of the film, and really bringing out some of the most lovely qualities in Piccioni's music. The tunes unfold gently, like the petals of a flower in soft summer rains – and there's also an undercurrent of darkness at a few points, but one that hardly gets in the way of the breathy, bossa-styled tunes. Titles include "La Torre", "Da Soli In Vacanza", "Capriccio", "The Redcoat", "I Cavalli", and "Nero Piu Bianco". CD also features 11 more bonus tracks – really wonderful alternates of the main tunes, making for a huge 25 track package! CD

Schema (Italy), 1960s/1970s. Used 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Sublime bossa groovers from Italy! The first volume of this series was one of our favorite compilations that year it was released – and this second volume is equally as great! 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! Electric keyboards abound – and the rhythms run from dreamy to driving to slightly funky, always at the right pace for the material, and always making the set dance with delight! Titles include "Incontro All'Aereoporto" by Piero Piccioni, "Allora, Il Treno" by Bruno Nicolai & Edda Dell'Orso, "Avances" by Gerardo Frisina, "Wind" by Red Redford Sound System One, "Bossalonga" by Mustang, "Unreality Landscape" by Angel Pocho Gatti, "Susan Theme" by Daniele Patucchi, "Per Lei" by Stefano Torossi, and "Colpa Tua" by Giancarlo Gazzani.

Contempo (Italy), 1964. New Copy (reissue)... About January 18, 2018 (delayed)
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

The feel of the work is great – somewhere between Piero Piccioni and John Barry – with a mixture of strings, tight rhythms, and some excellent occasional work on organ. Even the mellow numbers are nice – with a lilting feel that makes them dance a bit. Titles include "Girls On The Golfing Green", "Sunday Parley", "A Feel For The Latin", "All", "Sounding The Surf", and "Martinis & A Good Night Kiss".

Robby PoitevinTenica Di Un Omicidio/Quella Carogna Dell'Ispettore Sterling ... CD
Cinedelic (Italy), 1966/1968. New Copy ... About January 1, 2018 (delayed)
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

Great jazzy moments from the best years of European cinema – a collection that starts out with the French New Wave, then moves into a range of great sounds from the Italian and French scene of the 60s and early 70s! 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.

This nicely-priced 4CD package isn't really an overview of the "history" of soundtracks – but it is a wonderful collection of Italian cinematic goodies, pulled from the rich catalog of Cinevox Records! The set's divided up into 4 genres – one for each CD – Western, Comedy, Horror, and Police Thrillers. Overall, the work ranges from groovy upbeat tunes, including some excellent bossa-inspired numbers, to spaghetti western classics, to dark and turgid horror themes, and back to a few nice funky tracks. There's a total of 55 tracks in all, and the set features work by soundtrack composers that include Stelvio Cipriani, Giorgio Gaslini, Piero Piccioni, Riz Ortolani, Goblin, Ennio Morricone, Gianni Ferrio, Augusto Martelli, Carlo Rustichelli, Piero Umiliani, and Francesco De Masi. Most of the work on the set has already been issued in full soundtrack form by Cinevox, but at this price, it's a great way to check out the music! CD

✨✧ Franco De GeminiSi Puo Fare Molto Con 7 Donne ... LP
Beat (Italy), Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Freewheeling grooves from the great Franco De Gemini – a swinging score that nicely hangs onto some of the best 60s styles of the mod years, of the sort you might hear from Piero Piccioni or Armando Trovajoli! Some cuts have vocals – sung by the lovely Melody – and others have romping rhythms with either organ, or what seems to be amplified harmonica by De Gemini – a perfect fit for the playfully swinging sounds of the tunes! Titles include the sublime scatting "Cheops & Nefertiti", plus "Omar Khayyam", "What Is This Love", "Cairo Night", "Sphinx Show", and "Cos E L'Amore". LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy Japanese pressing – in great shape!)

✨✧ VariousEasy Tempo Vol 3 – Further Cinematic Easy Listening Experiences ... CD
Easy Tempo (Italy), 1960s/1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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! The track selection is sublime, and still one of the best illustrations of the genius of this period – with tracks that include "Diamond Bossa Nova" by Franceso De Masi, "Lady Magnolia" by Piero Umiliani, "Nago" by Luiz Bacalov, "Bob E Hellen" by Piero Umiliani, "North Pole Penguin" by Piero Piccioni, "Beryl's Tune No 2" by Agusto Martelli, "Flute Sequence" by Franco Micalizzi, "Danza Citar Free" by Piero Umiliani, "Honey Rhythm & Blutter" by The Green Future, "Esquetando Os Tambourinos E Cuica" by Sergio Nilo, and "Soul Samba" by Attilio Donadio.

✨✧ VariousEasy Tempo Vol 8 – Cinematica! - Different Musical Horizons ... CD
Easy Tempo (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
This great series keeps on redefining itself! While previous volumes have focused on funky, jazzy, and Latiny cuts – this fab 8th volume features a beautiful blend of tracks with a spare easy feel, and an exploration into the Italian minimalist groove – that ethereal, almost otherwordly style heard on some of the dreamiest soundtracks by Ennio Morricone! There's a floating, lilting groove here that's as lovely as the lady on the cover – and the set's overflowing with a whopping 21 titles in all – including "Tema Di Barbara" by Alberto Baldan Bembo, "Bai Des Anges" by Walter Rizzati, "A Ciascuno Il Suo" by Luis Bacalov, "To Jean" by Berto Pisano, "I Tuoi Sospiri" by Bruno Nicolai, "Metropoli" by Gino Marinacci Ensemble, "La Famiglia Nicotera" by Piero Piccioni, "Running Fire" by Lou Stein, and "Tema B" by Paolo Vasile.

✨✧ Braen's MachineUnderground (with bonus CD) ... LP
Liuto/Schema (Italy), 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the album on CD!)

✨✧ VariousCine Bossa – The European Film Music Collection ... CD
Rambling (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sweet bossa nova from the European scene – almost all of it from the kinds of late 60s Italian soundtracks that took the best elements of the style from Brazil, then expanded it into a whole new groovy style of its own! 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.
