✨✧ Astor PiazzollaLibertango ... LP
Trova (Italy), 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Astor Piazolla's beautiful expanded tango albums from the 70s – really groundbreaking work that still holds up beautifully today! For the set, Piazolla's usual modern bandoneon tangos are augmented by a set of lush orchestral arrangements that have an excellent romantic feel to them – and the resulting sound is like something that might have been lifted from a great 70s Italian soundtrack – extremely evocative and inventive, with a haunting, other-worldly sound at times. This is the sort of stuff that used to get trashed when 80s fans of his work praised a return to "simpler" forms – but we've got to admit, we dig this stuff a lot more, especially because Astor's strength as an orchestral arranger is so fantastic, and the addition of flutes, electric bass, and organ really open his sound up. Titles include "Undertango", "Libertango", "Violentango", and "Novitango". LP, Vinyl record album

Armando TrovajoliChiamate 22 22 Tenente Sheridan (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1960. New Copy ... $22.99
A great little soundtrack from that wonderful moment when the Italian cinema was heavy on sounds drawn from jazz and Latin music – served up here by the young Armando Trovajoli, who was in the process of moving from his modern jazz roots into the world of film scores! Much of the music here has a wonderfully late nite, moody sort of vibe – tracks that groove, but in a style that feels way past midnight – with midtempo Latin rhythms, echoey tenor, trumpet, and flute solos – and some nice currents of darkness in the music! Lydia McDonald sings the lead song – "Dial 22 22" – in English, which is a nice number – and the rest of the set is instrumental, cut with a range of great (but unnamed) jazz musicians – in territory that takes off from the best Henry Mancini modes of the late 50s, but goes into much hipper styles overall!

Armando TrovajoliBrutti Sporchi E Cattivi (Ugly Dirty & Bad) ... LP
Goodfellas (Italy), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99
A sweet 70s groover from Italian soundtrack maestro Armando Trovajoli – one that has some nice funky tracks! There's a bit more electricity running through the mix than on Trovajoli's 60s recordings – sweet keys and bass bubbling under the strings, and often hitting some nice laidback funky tunes in a sexy 70s Euro style. Some cuts are mellower and more traditional, but the electric ones, especially those with a bit of moog, are totally great – and the album's a great reminder of why Trovajoli continues to be one of our favorite soundtrack composers ever! Titles include "Racconto Televisivo", "Brutti Sporchi E Cattivi", "Nonna Antonecca", and "Il Sogno". LP, Vinyl record album

Armando TrovajoliIl Commisario Pepe ... LP
RCA/Production Dessinee (Japan), 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $39.99
A tremendous Italian soundtrack from the 60s – one of those "must own" records that grabs us at the very first note! We're already pretty partial to the sweet grooves of Armando Trovajoli, but he's really outdone himself here – pulling together the sweet keyboard lines of Il Matriarca and inflecting them with fuller strings, some funkier rhythms, and other hip modes that even include an English language vocal from Lydia MacDonald – all to make a soundtrack that twists and turns with delight at each new tune – always fully Italian 60s, but also filled with lots of surprises too! Alessandro Alessandroni does a bit of whistling, Edda Dell'Orso throws in a bit of wordless singing, and I Marc 4 play a bit as well – but the whole thing's still totally fresh and beyond cliche – and presented here with lots of bonus tracks too! Titles include "Love Is A Woman", "Masquerade", "Theme", "Beat For A Nun", "We'll Keep Trying", "A Lonely Man", "Surrender", and "Waltz Theme". LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful Japanese pressing – super-heavy vinyl and cover, with great insert!)

Armando TrovajoliLa Terrazza/Telefoni Bianchi ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1976/1980. New Copy ... $22.99
Armando Trovajoli in the late 70s – heard here on two different soundtracks that provide a nice update to his sexy 60s groove! First up is the score for La Terrazza – which features both some uptempo funky club groovers, and some slower slinky sex-drenched tunes – at a level that follows well from some of the Italian cop soundtracks of the time – and which, overall, maybe sounds a lot better than most of Trovajoli's contemporaries were doing in 1980! Instrumentation is nice and warm – and still very fleshed-out in all the right ways – more mid 70s cop/crime than thinner 80s keyboards – heard here on five tracks from the film, three of which are nice and long. Telefoni Bianchi has Trovajoli in a different style – maybe a bit more sentimental on some of the melodic moments – but also using some sprightly jazz violin, which almost gives the whole thing a Paris swing vibe at times. There's a few vocal tracks that have a lush sort of vibe – and a few more waltz-like numbers – on titles that include "Oasi Di Cartone", "Milonga", "Portami Tante Rose", "Anni Trenta", "Ricordando Count Basie", and "Fanfara Nunziale".

Armando TrovajoliSesso Matto – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1972. New Copy ... $16.99
Funky grooves, floating vocals, mellow keyboards, and a whole lot more – easily one of the greatest soundtracks ever from the legendary Armando Trovajoli – and certainly one of the grooviest too! There's a sublime quality to this score that's well made Sessomatto one of the best-remembered albums from the glory years of the Italian soundtracks – a sense of space, pacing, and timing that are simply breathtaking – and which are the perfect summation of Trovajoli's earlier experiments in music. As with his score to La Matriarca, the instrumentation here varies often – sometimes a bit of horns, nicely compressed; sometimes a floating harmonica line; sometimes keyboards; and sometimes a funky rhythm topped with vocals – all woven together in a rich pastiche of styles that makes the album one of the deepest soundtracks you'll hope to own from the time. The remastering here is wonderful – way better than the previous Japanese reissues, and done in a way that really isolates the best elements of the music – letting the simple balance of sound and space resonate beautifully, and exposing even more of Trovajoli's genius with a wealth of bonus tracks. These added numbers really open the whole thing up – taking the album way past the familiar "Sessomatto" theme (reworked and remixed for the dancefloor often in later years), and almost creating a mini-movie in sound – with all the requisite scene shifts and drama to match! CD features a whopping 41 tracks in all – with titles that include "Sessomatto", "Signora Sono Le Otto", "Two Happy People", "Ammuri Ammuri", "D'Amore Si Muore", "Un Amore Difficile", "Due Cuori E Una Birra", "Bravo Balli bene", "Scappa Gilda", "Vorrei Che Fosse Amore", "Searching For Something", and "L'Ospite".

Armando TrovajoliSeven Golden Men ... LP
United Artists, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $11.99
One of the best-ever euro soundtracks on United Artists! Lots of great Italian sixties scoring by Armando Trovajoli, with lots of jazzy crime music (this is a heist movie, apparently), and really cool Swingle Singers-sounding vocals by a group called I.Cantori Moderni. The sound is great, very groovy, and very much along the lines of stuff that you might find on a Crippled Dick or Easy Tempo compilation. Tracks include "Ping Pong", "Thunder Bolt", "Walk On Home", and "Golden Bricks". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a promo stamp, a partially split bottom seam, and some light wear.)

✨✧ Armando TrovajoliDays Of Vengeance ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1967. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
With a title like this, you can probably already feel the music – a dark toned take on the spaghetti western sound of the time – served up with the kind of brooding, haunting themes that provide a perfect backdrop for a man on a mission! Instrumentation is nicely compressed at points – guitar lines that lurk around the bottom of subtle orchestrations – creating subtle-stepping drama without pushing things too far over the top – all in this wonderfully restrained way that balances out the energy of the music, and creates an extended sense of tension as the album unfurls over the course of 32 different tracks. Titles include "Sole Basso", "Sole Alto", "L'Attesa", "Vai Cowboy Vai", "L'Imboscata", and "Ombre Al Tramonto". CD

✨✧ Armando TrovajoliL'Amore Dice Ciao – Tema Originale Dal Film La Matriarca (with bonus track) ... CD
Rambling (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic! This is one of the best groovy soundtracks we've heard in ages – and it's all built around one lovely little melody – in a way that's similar to Francis Lai's legendary Man & A Woman soundtrack! The tune is totally compelling, and is played in a variety of speeds and settings – on organ, electric harpsichord, and piano – all with jaunty little rhythms, and a slightly bossa, slightly Frenchy sound to it. Really wonderful, and the kind of ditty you'll be humming for weeks after you listen to it! There's 9 tracks in all – including "Bossa Nova Remix", "Piano Solo", "Slow Take", "Main Titles", and "Dream Version" CD also adds in a bonus alternate English version of the theme, too. CD

✨✧ Armando TrovajoliL'Arcidiavolo ... LP
Black Cat (Italy), 1966. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
This one's a kistchy comedy period piece – but the music is all-60s, all the way! The score was written by the great Armando Trovajoli – and he had no qualms about using as much Hammond organ, electric guitar, and other 60s easy psyche elements in this film about a visit by Beelzebub to ancient Rome. The music is performed by I Marc 4, and many of the tracks have groovy vocal refrains or choruses, giving the songs a hip go-go swinging sound! Great stuff all around, and the reissue comes with a full second LPs worth of extra tracks! Titles include "Legati Pacis", "Maddalena", "Adramelek", "Il Filo Dei Giorni", ""L'Attesa", "Moto Perpetuo", and "Quant'e Bella Giovinezza". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Armando TrovajoliSeddok L'Erede Di Santana (140 gram vinyl) ... LP
Contempo (Italy), 1960. Used (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A really surprising score from the great Armando Trovajoli – especially if you only know his bigger hits of the 60s, or his lighter, more bossa-styled material! As you might guess from the cover, this one's for a horror film with a dark spooky edge – and Trovajoli follows the spirit of the film wonderfully, with these really odd, offbeat orchestrations often mixed with even more unusual sounds – sometimes elements that we can't figure out at all – although they might just be familiar instruments, but used in really weird ways! Things are pretty tense throughout – nice and spare and with the feel that something's about to jump out of the darkness at most moments – and the album features 20 spooky tracks from the score!

✨✧ VariousSessomatto Experience ... CD
Easy Tempo (Italy), 1997. Used ... Out Of Stock
Full length CD that features a huge range of different talents all remixing the classic Italian soundtrack cut "Sessomatto" by Armando Trovajoli (which was included on Easy Tempo Vol 1). The set's got the full original version, plus cool remixes by Raphael Sebbag of U.F.O., DJ Smash, The Karminsky Brothers, Claudio Coccoluto, and other modern mixologists dedicated to transforming this classic jazzy bossa groove. Despite the repetition, the sound varies from track to track, and the release works well enough as a full-length LP with a sound that's in keeping with the rest of the Easy Tempo catalog. CD

Luis Bacalov (Luiz Enriquez)L'Amica (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
One of the greatest soundtracks ever from Luiz Bacalov – a set that's filled with sex and slink, but which also has a great sense of groove as well – blending bossa jazz, mod moments, and all the best styles of the late 60s Italian scene! The music is mostly acoustic, but has a really great way of using sustained notes on flute – which creates this dreamy vibe that's almost electric, especially when offset by acoustic basslines, percussion, and piano – all used at a level that's right up there with the best from Morricone or Trovajoli at the time! There's also wonderful drifting vocals in the mix – courtesy of Nora Orlandi – and titles include "Round Nassau", "Swingin Easy In Tanganika", "Rio Zona Sul", "L'Amica", and "Taxi Cab 67". Features two bonus tracks – "L'Amica (ripresa)" and "The Bitter Truth (inst)". LP, Vinyl record album

Braen's MachineTemi Ritmici E Dinamici (with bonus CD) ... LP
Liuto/Schema (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Maybe the coolest and grooviest music we've heard from the obscure Braen's Machine sound library project from early 70s Italy – a record that's less tripped out than its predecessors, and instead has this great style that's heavy on bossa elements and funky jazz! The vibe's a bit like the best Italian soundtracks of the period – especially work by Morricone or Trovajoli – and the group still apparently features contributions from Alessandro Alessandroni, working with Piero Umiliani – which gives the whole thing a very strong soundtrack pedigree! Instrumentation includes some mighty nice keyboards – both Hammond and electric piano – and lots of great production on familiar instruments, which can give things like a snare drum a very odd crackle, or a flute this weirdly spacious sound. Titles include "Movimento", "Dinimica", "Gara", "Passeggiata", "Aspetti Grotteschi", "Esercizi Ginnici", "Ritmica Sportiva", and "Rinuncia". LP, Vinyl record album

Greg BurkClean Spring ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 2016. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
Pianist Greg Burk plays here in a completely solo setting – but almost with the power and presence of a full trio – such is his command of the keys, and energy he puts into his performance! Yet a good part of the strength of the set also comes from the compositions – which are all Burk's own – really beautiful tunes that mix lyrical moments with more ambitious expressions – served up in a stylistic flurry that leaves us breathless, and which makes the album's fourteen tracks a never-ending source of delight. Few players can open up a solo piano set with such imagination and creativity, and the record's got us really paying a lot more attention to Greg than before. Titles include "Four Reasons", "Not Forever", "Tonos", "Escher Dance", "Amore Trovato", "Song For Iaia", and "Blues For Yusef Lateef". CD

Junkfood & Enrico GabrielliItalian Masters (deep red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 2016. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
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

Gianni MarchettiWild Eye – Original Soundtrack ... LP
RCA, 1968. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A groovy little Italian soundtrack – straight in some parts, but very nice in others! There's some sweet tunes that features wordless female vocals – in the mode of work by Armando Trovajoli or Ennio Morricone from the time – and there's other tunes that have a dancing groovy style that are right in the Easy Tempo mode. The tracks are very short, but groove around nicely – and really fit the feel you might expect from a title like The Wild Eye! Titles include "Bali Street", "The Sultan", "Don't Go Away", "The Kiss", "Two Lovers", "Love Comes Back", "Goodbye", and "Golden Age". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label stereo pressing with deep groove. Cover has wide clear tape on the top seam, with some notes in pen & marker on back.)
