Armando TrovajoliCiao Rudy ... LP
RCA (Italy), Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $19.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(70s orange label pressing with deep groove.)

Armando TrovajoliDramma Della Gelosia (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
EMI/Beatball (Korea), 1970. New Copy ... About November 15, 2017 (delayed)
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". CD also featuers 6 never-issued bonus tracks – plus a poster-style booklet too! CD

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".

Armando TrovajoliPaolo Il Caldo (aka The Sensuous Sicilian) ... CD
CAM (Italy), 1973. Used ... $9.99
This one's more of a sad film about a horny guy than it is the light-hearted sex romp you might think – but as always, Armando Trovajoli serves up the goods nicely, coming up with a mix of tunes to fit the mood of the film. Given the approach, a number of these tracks are spare and somber – but there's a few great ones that groove nicely, including "Flip Top", which has this fuzzy moog sound that's really great! Other tracks include "Immagini", "Ricordo Di Lillia", "Amore Impossible", "Infanzia Di Paolo", and "Malinconia Di Paolo". CD

Armando TrovajoliRiusciranno I Nostri Eroi A Ritrovare L'Amico Misteriosamente Scomparso In Africa? ... CD
BMG/GDM (Italy), 1968. Used ... $9.99
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 12 variations on themes that include "Canto De Angola", "Angola Adeus", and "Feitico Da Noite".

Armando TrovajoliSeven Golden Men ... LP
United Artists, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $11.99
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- ... $14.99
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 TrovajoliUna Magnum Special Per Tony Saitta ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1976. New Copy ... $16.99
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 Trovajoli/I Cantori Moderni7 Volte 7 – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Beatball (South Korea), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... About November 5, 2017 (delayed)
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 grooving! The whole thing swings mightily – and kind of feels like what might have happened if the Swingle Singers ever recorded with Lalo Schifrin. Titles include "The Getaway", "Seven Times Blues", "The Big Brain", "Jail", and "Seven Times Seven". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Armando TrovajoliSoftly ... LP
RCA (Italy), Late 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Softly, but never sleepy – a rare small combo jazz session from Italian soundtrack composer Armando Trovajoli – one that has Trovajoli on piano in a group that includes vibes, guitar, and flute! The sound is light and lively throughout – a bit like some of the French jazz of the postwar years, but with some touches that often go a bit deeper emotionally, and avoid the coldness that could sometimes be a trap of chamber jazz combos like this. Berto Pisano plays guitar, Franco Chiari is on vibes, and Jerry Marinacci handles the flute with a sound that's wonderfully fluid, but also touched with some great dark edges. Titles include a fair number of American standards, done in new arrangements – with tunes that include "Just One Of Those Things", "A Foggy Night", "I Can't Believe", "Whispering", "Sometimes A Heart Goes Away", "Bernie's Tune", and "The Nearness Of You".

✨✧ Armando TrovajoliChiamate 22 22 Tenente Sheridan (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1960. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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 TrovajoliSesso Matto – Original Soundtrack (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Duse/Beat/Sonor (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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".

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

✨✧ I Cantori Moderni Di AlessandroniModern Singers ... CD
Bella Casa (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $3.99
One of the key forces in the Italian soundtrack scene of the 60s – finally given their due in a CD of their own! I Cantori Moderni never really made any records on their own, but they were a key part of soundtrack work by some of the best Italian composers of their generation – including Ennio Morricone, Armando Trovajoli, Bruno Nicolai, Piero Umiliani, and Luis Bacalov – all of whom were lucky enough to have the group work on their music! The ensemble is headed by Alessandro Alessandroni – who himself contributed much to soundtracks of the time – and like their maestro, they've got a great way with many styles – from spookier mood music, to sexy erotica, to upbeat, groovy tunes. This 27 track package pulls together some of the best bits from the group's late 60s and early 70s work on Italian soundtracks – music by all the composers listed above, from films that include Theorem, Queimada, Le Foto Proibite, Sette Volte Sette, Lo Scatenato, Maddalena, L'Alibi, Don Giovonni In Sicilia, Metti Una Sera A Cena, Scusi Facciamo L'Amore, and 4 3 2 1 Morte.

VariousCine Bossa – The European Film Music Collection ... CD
Rambling (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy ... $22.99
Sweet bossa nova from the European scene – almost all of it from the kinds of late 60s Italian soundtracks that took the best elements of the style from Brazil, then expanded it into a whole new groovy style of its own! The music here certainly has lots of the snapping rhythms and breezy melodies you'll know from classic bossa nova – but the arrangements are often a lot more ambitious, and add in all these cool, groovy, and mod touches – including bits of organ, electric guitar, scat vocals, and other musical elements that resonate strongly with the best modernist vibe of the Italian 60s world of film. Titles include "Anice Nuraghi" by Luis Bacalov, "La Matriarca" by Armando Trovajoli, "Mr Dante Fontana" by Piero Piccioni, "Samba In Tribunale" by Ennio Morricone, "Bob & Hellen" by Piero Umiliani, "Bikini Bossa" by Gianni Dell'Orso, "Il Colpo" by Stelvio Cipriani, "Bossa In California" by Marcello Gigante, "Pedone L'Africano" by Guido & Maurizio DeAngelis, and "Aspetto Ancora Un Giorno" by Piero Piccione.
