Armando TrovajoliCiao Rudy ... LP
RCA (Italy), Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Not the usual 60s soundtrack from the great Armando Trovajoli – as the set's more of a jazz quartet outing overall, and reflects the maestro's earlier modes of the 50s! The group features Trovajoli on piano, alongside guitar, bass, and drums – and although the tunes are from a musical penned by Armando, the performance is jazz all the way through – with really strong solos from the leader, and more dynamic work on the keyboard than you might expect! Tracks include the excellent bossa number "Questo Si Chiama Amore" – plus other nice ones that include "Abbiamo Julio", "Ciao Rudy", "Il Proibizionismo", "Piaceva Alle Donne", and "Gente Matta".

Armando TrovajoliLa Famiglia Benvenuti (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
A welcome portrait of the late 60s mod jazz and funk inspired side of soundtrack maestro Armando Trovajoli! Not to be confused with other more sentimental "Famiglia" soundtracks by the legendary composer – which would be easy to do at just a glance of the cover – 1969's La Famiglia Benvenuti is done in prime late 60s easy jazz & funk mode. Lots of harpsichord in the mix, and with some mellow moments, but in the service of a groovy swinging 60s vibe overall, with some nice little bossa touches, and a few vocal numbers with the I Cantori Moderni group that have an almost Free Design kind of feel! Includes the title theme, "Vivere Felici", "FMB Shake", "Fettuccinata", "I Giovani Benvenuti", "Donato's Blues", "Si Dice Sempre Cosi", "September Day", "Decisione", "Stavolta No", Se Non Ho Te", and "Vivere Felici".

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". CD

Armando TrovajoliSeven Golden Men ... LP
United Artists, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A fantastic score from the great Armando Trovajoli – one of his few 60s classics to get any sort of circulation in the US – and one of the best! The album's got loads of scatting vocals by his great group I Cantori Modern – alongside upbeat chase tracks, crime jazz, and even a bit of electric harpsichord too! Tracks include "Ping Pong", "Thunder Bolt", "Walk On Home", and "Golden Bricks". LP, Vinyl record album

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 Trovajoli/I Cantori Moderni7 Volte 7 – Original Soundtrack (180 gram colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Beatball (South Korea), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
Wonderfully groovy stuff – and one of the best soundtracks ever by the great Italian composer Armando Trovajoli! The record has a very similar feel to his legendary Seven Golden Men soundtrack – with a groovy swinging jazz vocal group (I Cantori Moderni) over jazzy riffing and groovin – on upbeat tunes that are very cool, with a mod 60s style throughout! The whole thing swings mightily – and kind of feels like what might have happened if the Swingle Singers ever recorded with Lalo Schifrin – his best jazz-infused instrumentation, and their wonderfully dynamic vocal approach. Titles include "The Getaway", "Seven Times Blues", "The Big Brain", "Jail", and "Seven Times Seven". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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 TrovajoliDramma Della Gelosia (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
EMI/Beatball (Korea), 1970. New Copy ... 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", and "Adelaide". CD also featuers 6 never-issued bonus tracks – plus a poster-style booklet too! CD

✨✧ Armando TrovajoliLovemaker ... CD
Pentamusic (Italy), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great late 60s score from the mighty Armando Trovajoli – penned right in the middle of his golden years, and with a similar vibe to some of his best sex-drenched soundtracks of the time! There's elements here that remind us a lot of longtime Trovajoli favorites – like Dramma Della Gelosia or La Matriarca – as many of the tunes make great use of organ or keyboards, and have this mix of romping, groovy styles and more laidback moments in a jazz or bossa mode! There's German vocals on one track, and Edda Dell'Orso sings on another – but the maestro himself handles the keys, and does a great job of opening up the sound with inflections that remind us that he got his start in the postwar Italian jazz scene. CD features 15 tracks in all – three takes on "Spiel Der Wahrheit", and other variations on the title theme. CD

✨✧ Armando TrovajoliUna Magnum Special Per Tony Saitta ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Killer cop/crime music from the Italian scene of the 70s – a famous genre soundtrack from composer Armando Trovajoli, who's usually known for his work in warmer, sexier styles! The grooves here are right up there with the best that Italy has to offer from the time – full, jazzy backings that often have a bit of keyboards or guitars amidst the larger horns – and rhythms that manage to sound tightly compressed, despite the larger arrangements – in ways that help keep things sounding nice and lean. Trovajoli adds in isolated instruments at the best moments – particularly some woodwind bits that snake along with warmly melodic touches, or keyboards used in spare and subtle ways – and each track seems to offer up a fresh approach to the sound, making for a well-balanced batch of tracks that's far from cliche! Titles include "The Puzzle Is Completed", "A Very Strange Party", "Theme For A Murderer", "Louise", "Tony's Magnum", "Who Killed Louise", and "Black Pearl Necklace". CD

Luis Bacalov (Luiz Enriquez)L'Amica (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
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

✨✧ Calibro 35Calibro 35 ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 2008. New Copy (reissue)... About February 1, 2018
A new combo, but one who really get the sound of older soundtracks right – particularly the late 60s/early 70s Italian generation that's inspired the name and artwork of this set! Instrumentation is nice and lean – keyboards, guitar, bass, and percussion – used more in the tight ways of a mod funk combo, but with strong soundtrack leanings in the tunes – no surprise, as the songs here are all pulled from vintage scores by Ennio Morricone, Luiz Bacalov, Armando Trovajoli, and others of the golden age of Italian soundtracks! And if you're suspicious about the sound, don't be – because these guys are totally great – no fake-retro moments, or overly programmed rhythms – just live instrumentation handled beautifully, in ways that bring something new to the tunes, but remain very faithful to their original inspiration. Titles include "Preludio", "Italia Amano Armata", "Titoli", "Notte In Bovisa", "Summertime Killer", "La Polizia S'Incazza", "Shake Balera", "Spiralys", and "Gangster Story". 18 tracks in all – more than the CD!

Franco De GeminiSi Puo Fare Molto Con 7 Donne ... LP
Beat (Italy), Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $48.99
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!)

Junkfood & Enrico GabrielliItalian Masters (deep red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 2016. Near Mint- (reissue)... $14.99
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
