Braen's MachineTemi Ritmici E Dinamici ... CD
Liuto/Schema (Italy), 1973. New Copy Gatefold ... $18.99
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". CD

Greg BurkClean Spring ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 2016. New Copy ... $15.99 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

✨✧ Gianni MarchettiL'Occhio Selvaggio (aka The Wild Eye) ... CD
CAM (Italy), 1968. Used ... $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". CD

Rova OrkestrovaElectric Ascension ... CD
Unheard Music Series, 2003. Used ... $6.99
A brilliant recording of John Coltrane's legendary "Ascension" – performed by an expanded version of the Rova Sax Quartet! The group here features core Rova members Larry Ochs, Jon Raskin, Steve Adams, and Bruce Ackley – "electrified" by the addition of Nels Cline on guitar, Fred Frith on bass, Otomo Yoshihide on turntables, Chris Brown on electronics, and Ikue Mori on drum machines and sampler. Added to this are some additional drums and violin – but oddly, the sound is still very sax-based overall – with Rova at the front, holding down the soulful spirit of Coltrane – and the other players bringing up the rest of the record with an edgey, improvised sound that almost reminds us of the best New York work of the early 80s!

✨✧ Armando TrovajoliC'Eravamo Tanto Amati ... LP
Duse (Italy), 1974. Near Mint- ... $99.99
Totally great soundtrack music from the mighty Armando Trovajoli – a sweet 70s score that's filled with wonderful work on keyboards! The groove is gentle on most numbers, which lets the keyboards snake out in these cool slinky ways – often with an undercurrent of Euro sex, as you'd find in the music of Stelvio Cipriani – but with some of the lighter touches you'd find in Trovajoli's late 60s work for love stories too! Different melodies stand out on each track, but in a gentle way – and there's a slow-bubbling, slow-burning quality to the record that makes it completely seductive. Titles include "Picchiapo", "Tema Per Luciana", "Tema Amiciza", "Strano Interludio", "Tema Per Elide", and "Io Ero Sandokan", which features vocals by Maria Tereza. LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing! Cover has one small mark from an old sticker, and some light spine wear in one corner – but overall, this is a great copy.)

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
(Limited edition of 500!)

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 TrovajoliDramma Della Gelosia ... CD
Rambling (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $21.99
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 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 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 TrovajoliLa Piu Bella Serata Della Mia Vita ... LP
Beat (Italy), 1976. Near Mint- ... $28.99
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 TrovajoliSesso Matto – Original Soundtrack (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Duse/Beat/Sonor (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
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. LP features titles that include "Sessomatto", "Kinky Peanuts", "Two Happy People", "Palm Tree", "Viaggio Di Nozze", "Un Amore Difficile", "Searching For Something", and "Delitto Sessuale".

Armando TrovajoliToto Di Notte No 1 ... CD
CAM (Italy), 1962. Used ... $7.99
A richly jazzy score from the great Armando Trovajoli – one that has him bringing out all of his best groovy elements, even early in the 60s! The tunes here range from upbeat and horn-based numbers to lighter, more playful tunes that use organ, accordion, and sax to work out some very sexy little themes. The tunes are all very nicely varied – so that each number presents a new musical theme, and continues to create fresh delights throughout the album – and if anything, our only complaint about the soundtrack would be that it's too darn short! Titles include "Piazza Navona", "Strip Cha Cha Cha", "Rosa Morena Twist", "Strip Tease Blues", "Strade Di Parigi", "Parigi Di Notte", and "Titoli". CD

VariousEasy Tempo Vol 6 – A Cinematic Jazz Experience ... CD
Easy Tempo (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99
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.
