Flamingo Group feat Marie Rottrova & Peter NemecThis Is Our Soul ... LP
Supraphon (Czech Republic), 1971. Near Mint- ... $24.99
A killer from the Czech scene of the early 70s – but a set that clearly draws its inspiration from the sound of mid-60s London – especially artists who mix jazz and soul, like Georgie Fame or Zoot Money! The core combo is totally great – with a very R&B-drenched vibe – and they work here with guest vocals from singers Marie Rottrova and Petr Nemec, who take turns singing the tunes. But maybe the best moments are the longer Hammond instruments – "Quasimodo's Dream" and "Sunny" – which both feature searing solos from Vladimir Figar, who's a hell of a player on the organ, with some mighty nice ideas! Other titles include "Big Chain", "Nothing's Too Good For My Baby", "Purple Angels", "Chain Of Fools", "Hey Lonely Girl", and "Ain't No Way". LP, Vinyl record album

Armando TrovajoliCiao Rudy ... LP
RCA (Italy), Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
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 Stanza Del Vescovo (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1977. New Copy ... $18.99
A slinky score from Armando Trovajoli – done for a film that was also titled The Bishop's Bedroom – a place where some of the slinky action in the film must have taken place! There's an occasional period vibe to the music – a few older jazz touches here and there – but most of the music is in a warmer mode that fits the 70s direction of the film, with swelling strings, and a fair bit of lead piano lines that step out warmly over the rest of the music, which sound especially nice when the keyboards are electric – as they stand in stark contrast to the more acoustic swing modes. Titles include "Lady In Black", "Girl On Board", "Easy Lisico", "Love Love", and "Ricordi Nell'Armadio". CD also features 7 bonus tracks! CD

Armando TrovajoliTelefoni Bianchi ... LP
Cinevox (Italy), 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $33.99
Telefoni Bianchi has Trovajoli in a different style than usual – 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 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 TrovajoliLovemaker ... CD
Pentamusic (Italy), 1969. New Copy ... Temporarily 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 TrovajoliRiusciranno I Nostri Eroi A Ritrovare L'Amico Misteriosamente Scomparso In Africa (with bonus tracks) ... CD
BMG/Beat (Italy), 1968. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sweeping strings, African themes, and one of the most beautiful Armando Trovajoli soundtracks of the 60s – a real standout from the already-great Italian scene of the time, and filled with beautiful tunes that are pretty new to our ears! The set's got plenty of those great Trovajoli bossa modes – lightly dancing arrangements underpinned by a good sense of rhythm that always spices things up – and which really comes to the forefront on a few sparer tunes that are heavy on acoustic percussion. The mix of earthy and dreamy is really great, and quite different than the usual Italian score of the time – and titles include 11 bonus tracks – 10 variations on themes that include "Canto De Angola", "Angola Adeus", and "Feitico Da Noite" – plus a 1978 disco version of "Angola Adeus"!

✨✧ Armando TrovajoliUna Magnum Special Per Tony Saitta ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1976. New Copy ... Temporarily 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

✨✧ Armando TrovajoliSeven Golden Men ... LP
United Artists, Mid 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
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 TrovajoliLa Terrazza/Telefoni Bianchi ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1976/1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".

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

✨✧ Braen's MachineTemi Ritmici E Dinamici (with bonus CD) ... LP
Liuto/Schema (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
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

✨✧ Riz OrtolaniUno Scandolo Perbene (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1984. New Copy ... $18.99
A wonderfully mellow soundtrack from Riz Ortolani – a bit different than most of his other work, and handled with this spacious style that often has a lead instrumental solo sliding out in front of soft orchestrations! The mood is sometimes somber – maybe not as sexy as you'd guess from the image on the cover – and the style's a bit like some of those soundtracks that Ennio Morricone was doing around the same time, especially as his work took him into more of a global cinematic scale! Some of our favorite tracks have a lead trumpet or woodwind – and titles include "Amnesia", "Uno Scandalo Perbene", "Interrogatorio", "Momenti Felici", "Meditazione", and "Ritrovarsi Ancora". CD also features 11 previously unissued bonus tracks! CD

Robby PoitevinTecnica Di Un Omicidio/Quella Carogna Dell'Ispettore Sterling ... CD
Cinedelic (Italy), 1966/1968. New Copy ... $16.99
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

✨✧ Nino RotaFellini, Visconti, Decadence, & Dreams (8 1/2/Rocco & His Brothers/The Leopard/Boccacio 70/more) ... CD
El (UK), Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $6.99 13.99
An overstuffed collection – one that's filled with famous Nino Rota soundtrack material – for films by Fellini, Visconti, and others! First up is the excellent score for 8 1/2 – beautiful work by Nino Rota – filled with the kind of classic themes that distinguished his best work for Fellini. Carlo Savina conducted, and he does an excellent job with Rota's ideas – crafting them into short little packets of sound, woven tightly into little balls that pass back and forth as the mood of the film changes, in a similar mode to the scoring for La Dolce Vita. Titles include "Cadillac", "Cimitero", "Discesa Ai Fanghi", "La Passerella D'Addio", "Concertino Alle Terme", and "E Poi". Next is Rocco & His Brothers – a wonderful Nino Rota score – composed around the same time as his better-known work for Fellini, but done for a film directed by Luchino Visconti! There's a great mix of darkness and light in the music – some playful themes mixed with moodier moments – set to instrumentation that includes organ, bandeon, violin, and sax – with occasional larger orchestrations as well, but always with that sense of intimacy that made Rota one of the first fresh composers on the European scene of the postwar years. If you dig Rota's work for Fellini, you'll find plenty here to love – on titles that include "Come Tu Vuoi", "Milano E Nadia", "Terra Lontana", "L'Amore Di Rocco", and "La Loro Storia". The Leopard is a slightly more straightforward score – done for the famous film with Burt Lancaster in the lead. Boccaccio 70 is a 3-part soundtrack to a 3-part film that features different segments by Fellini, Visconti, and De Sica. The mode is Italian sex comedy – and the styles used here by Trovajoli and Rota are groovy and whimsical – occasionally touched with jazz or jerk/beat modes, but more in the ornate humoresque mode of early 60s Italian scores. CD also features Rota soundtrack material from the films La Riffa, Il Lavora, and The Temptation Of Dr Antonio. CD
