Armando TrovajoliIl Profeta/La Matriarca ... CD
GDM/Cinedelic (Italy), 1968. Used ... $14.99
2 of the grooviest soundtracks ever recorded by this Italian genius! For the score to the mod 60s film Il Profeta, Trovajoli adds in some great elements like twanging guitars, trippy sitar, and hammond organ – all of which groove along in kind of a "go go" mode on the set's best numbers, laying out a vision of swinging Italy that really makes us wish we were there! Titles include "Il Profeta", "Abbiamo Capito", and "Topo Di Campagna", all done in a number of versions, making for a total of 16 cuts in all! La Matriarca is even better – built around one lovely little melody, similar to Francis Lai's legendary A 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". 25 cuts in all – with both soundtracks on the CD! CD

Armando TrovajoliLa Famiglia ... CD
GDM (Italy), 1987. Used ... $8.99
Armando Trovajoli's score for Ettore Scola's story of a multi-generational family – served up with just the right sort of tones to fit the story! The music here is a fair bit warmer and more sentimental than Trovajoli's work of a few decades before – much more in the space that Ennio Morricone was hitting with some of his bigger film scores of the 80s – and done in tones that echo history and family with every note. The style's never cloying or commercial, though – and like Morricone, Trovajoli succeeds through understatement – keeping the backings subdued at most moments, and letting smaller instrumental voices take center stage. Titles include "Addio", "Ricordi", "La Familgia", "Primo Incontro", "Sensazione", "Telefonata Da Parigi", and "Adelina". CD

Armando TrovajoliPaolo Il Caldo (aka The Sensuous Sicilian) ... CD
CAM (Italy), 1973. Used ... $11.99
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 ... $14.99
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 TrovajoliSesso Matto – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1972. Used ... $9.99
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 TrovajoliToto Di Notte No 1 ... CD
CAM (Italy), 1962. Used ... $5.99
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

Greg BurkClean Spring ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 2016. Used ... $8.99
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

VariousCommedia Sexy All'Italia ... CD
Mediane (Italy), 2007. Used ... $5.99
A really crazy little package – one that's filled with sexy images from Italian comedies of the 60s and 70s – and packaged with a special CD to match! The booklet itself is practically softcore porn (so be aware of that, you sensitive viewers!) – full color pages with images from the films, most of which feature ladies in some state of undress. And the CD's also pretty great too – and features 20 classic sex comedy themes that include "Sessomatto" by Armando Trovajoli, "Isola Tuttofare" by Piero Umiliani, "Fail Piano Fai Presto" by Gianni Ferrio, "Quel Gran Pezzo Dell'Ubalda" by Bruno Nicolai, "Curiosita Infantili" by Fred Bongusto, "Vieni Avanti Cretino" by Lino Fanfi, and "Rio 70" by Nylon.

VariousItalian Girls Like Ear-Catching Melodies ... CD
Dagored (Italy), Early 70s. Used ... $8.99
Despite the cloying title of this one, the set's a very sweet collection of Italian 70's themes with a groovy sexy sound to them. There's perhaps more of a camp feel than usual (if you can believe that!), with sounds that have a bit of a Barbarella-ish feel, or sort of a Euro b-grade erotic quality. There's some nice mellow moments with spare electric keyboards, in sort of a Morricone style, and others with good rolling basslines. Titles include "Louise" and "Theme For A Murderer" by Armando Trovajoli, "La Bella Signora" and "One More Time" by Piero Piccioni, "La Storia Comincia" by Guido De Angelis, "Diamanti Swing" by Francesco De Masi, "What Is This Love" by Franco De Gemini, "Susan & Jane" by Riz Ortolani, and "Il Sorriso Della Ieana M6" by Roberto Pregadio. Nicely packaged in a sexy cover, and with a nice pace of grooves! CD
