Armando TrovajoliChiamate 22 22 Tenente Sheridan (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1960. New Copy ... $32.99
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 TrovajoliBeat Generation (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
RCA/Contempo (Italy), 1960. New Copy Gatefold ... $16.99
The great Armando Trovajoli composed some of the grooviest soundtracks of the late 60s – but at the start of the decade, he was also shining strongly on the jazz front as well – turning out amazing work on albums like this, which we'd love to death, even if we didn't know him from his film scores! The music has a sharp, soulful focus that's somewhere between the early 60s magic of the Basso-Valdambrini group on the Italian scene, and the hard-swinging work of the Clarke Boland Big Band – and the larger ensemble here features Trovajoli on piano, plus Gianni Basso and Gino Marinacci on saxes, Dino Piana and Enzo Forte on trombones, Oscar Valdambrini and Nini Rosso on trumpets, and Franco Pisano on guitar. As you'd guess from the title, the album's designed to sum up the ethos of the Beat Generation – which Trovajoli does very well on these dynamic, colorful jazz tracks that include "So Long", "The Stretch", "Why Not", "OK", and "Bonjour Tristano".

Armando TrovajoliCattiva ... CD
GDM (Italy), 1991. New Copy ... $16.99
A later soundtrack from the great Armando Trovajoli – the Italian composer who first rocked our world with some wonderful scores in the 60s, and who's still pretty great on this one from the start of the 90s! The music is a bit more timeless than you'd guess from the date, and maybe darker than most of Trovajoli's earlier music too – with these moody string and woodwind passages that are really beautiful, and which have a subtle, but really captivating approach as things move on. Many of the notes resonate in space wonderfully – but with more fullness than some of the Italian scoring of the isolated generation of Morricone – as if Trovajoli has each element hanging on nicely, almost with a feel that's more French film than Italian. Titles include "Temporale", "Cattiva", "Emilia A Gustav", "Amore Nel Dolore", "Bisognosa Di Cure", "Ombre Nell'Animo", and "Corridoio Oscuro". CD

Armando TrovajoliDays Of Vengeance ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1967. New Copy ... $18.99
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 TrovajoliI Pianeti Contro Di Noi ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1962. New Copy ... $16.99
One of the most unusual soundtracks we've ever heard from the mighty Armando Trovajoli – an early 60s sci-fi score, but one that's got plenty of jazz in the mix too! The music's quite compelling – warm at some moments, electronic and spooky at others – almost in that weird blend of bossa, jazz, jerk, and sci-fi used by Peter Thomas for Raumpatrouille – but maybe with less in the way of production effects overall. Even at this early point, Trovajoli's got a great way of blending 60s Italian modern with some warmer touches – and we love the blend of acoustic and electric elements, especially without the fuller strings that you'd find in an American space soundtrack of the time.

Armando TrovajoliIeri Oggi Domani ... LP
Contempo (Italy), 1964. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99
Light and lovely 60s material from the great Armando Trovajoli – a key soundtrack from a period when the composer was really starting to come into his own! The music here accompanies a Marcello Mastroianni/Sophia Loren film, and shares the same mix of comedy and sentiment that you'd expect from both figures – lightly playful one minute, richly contemplative the next – as Trovajoli mixes woodwinds, strings, and some lighter guitar passages in these really compelling little melodies – including some nice bossa bits too. The first half of the record is a bit more conventional, but the second half is wonderfully groovy, with some especially great jazz touches – and titles include "Notte Di Natale", "Forcella", "Anna With The Rolls", "Descansado", "Flowers For A Poor Millionaire", and "Portrait Of MM".

Armando TrovajoliLa Piu Bella Serata Della Mia Vita ... LP
Beat (Italy), 1976. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
La Piu Bella Serata tells the story of an industrialist held hostage and given a mock trial – and for the film, Trovajoli's using some unusual electronics – often very sparely, and paired with some weird and mellow orchestrations that sometimes seem playful, but which also have an eerie undercurrent. Titles include "La Motociclista", "La Castellana", "Verso Il Castello", and "Fine Di Un Sogno". LP, Vinyl record album

Armando TrovajoliL'Amore Dice Ciao – Tema Originale Dal Film La Matriarca (with bonus track) ... CD
Rambling (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $21.99
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 ... $22.99
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 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 TrovajoliTreasure Of San Gennaro ... LP
Buddah, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $11.99
An early international success for Italian maestro Armando Trovajoli – the very groovy soundtrack to Operazione San Gennaro – also issued here in the states as The Treasure Of San Gennaro! The soundtrack is a really great mix of modes – as half the tracks are groovy, swinging, and mod – while the other half have a more Italian comedy sort of style, one that borrows trademark Mediterranean touches, but uses them sparingly, without any sort of hoke at all. Instrumentation includes some lively mandolin and flute on these Italian-styled numbers – and some cooler organ, keyboards, and jazzier bits on the groovier tracks. I Marc 4 also had a hand in some of the instrumentation – and titles include "Treasure Of San Gennaro", "Love For Two", "Poor Boy Jack", "Maggie's Theme", "The Miracle", "Esacpe", and "Treasure Of San Gennaro".

✨✧ Armando TrovajoliArmando Trovajoli In Lounge – Lounge Style Themes From The Original Motion Picture Soundtracks ... CD
Veritano (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
No easygoing "lounge" here – but a really groovy batch of soundtrack work from the fab Armando Trovajoli – easily one of the hippest talents on the Italian scene of the 60s! Trovajoli's got a really mod way with a tune that's fully explored here – a use of driving rhythms, electric basslines, bits of organ, and often female vocals – all wrapped up into tunes that shake, jerk, and slink with the best groovy soundtracks of their generation. CD features a few previously unissued edits, and a total of 25 brilliant numbers from films that include Don Giovanni In Sicilia, Il Commisario Pepe, Vedo Nudo, L'Arcidiavolo, Il Profeta, Adulterio All'Italiana, and others. Tracks include "Descansado", "Il Profeta (shake)", "Il Giovane Normale (shakes medley)", "Girandole", "Masquerade", "Andata E Ritorno", "Bada Caterina (inst)", "Final", "Anna With The Rolls", "Maddalena", "Io Brillo E Bollo (inst new edit)", and "Sei Mesi Di Felicita".

✨✧ Armando TrovajoliDramma Della Gelosia ... CD
Rambling (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful score to this lesser-known Marcello Mastroianni film from 1970 – sublime sounds from the great Armando Trovajoli – done in a beautiful mix of electric keyboards, wordless vocals, and dreamy orchestrations! The set's got this warmly stepping groove that's really tremendous – spacious sounds that draw on Trovajoli's previous bossa work, with some more electric 70s elements at times – but never too much at all. The whole thing's as charming as you'd guess from the cover – and titles include "Se Mesi Di Felicita", "Tema Di Oreste", "Dramma Della Gelosia", "Incontro Alla Balera", "Sognando", and "Adelaide".

✨✧ Armando TrovajoliIl Commisario Pepe ... LP
RCA/Production Dessinee (Japan), 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 TrovajoliSeddok L'Erede Di Santana (140 gram vinyl) ... LP
Contempo (Italy), 1960. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily 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!
