Alessandro Alessandroni & Rino De FilippiVacanze ... LP
SR/Sonor (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99 39.99
A sweet summer vacation from two Italian sound library maestros – both working here together at the height of their powers – in the kind of blend of funk, bossa, and jazz that you could only find in the Italian scene at the time! The rhythms are lively, but nice and light too – skipping around with a fantastic vibe that really illuminates the keyboards, guitar lines, and other elements used in the music – that kind of breezy, lovely quality we love in some of our best Italian soundtracks – served up here on short instrumentals with a nice sense of variety, but a very unified vibe on the album. Titles include "Ritmica Distensiva", "Viaggio Nella Notte", "Scioltezza Sportiva", "Nostalgian Di Un Giorno", "Fabbricauto", and "Panorama Beach". LP, Vinyl record album

Alessandro Alessandroni/Jessica DuncanItalian Library Songbook Vol 1 – Do You Wanna Get Close/Philadelphia ... 12-inch
Four Flies (Italy), 1976/2021. New Copy ... $14.99
A really great little single – one that takes a famous older theme from Italian sound library giant Alessandro Alessandroni, and turns it into a fantastic soul cut with vocals by Jessica Duncan! This isn't a cheapo "soundtrack remix" cut – as the tune's rebuilt right from the start, with these cool offbeat keyboards over a rock-solid bassline, while Jessica spins out the lyric with a really seductive vibe! "Philadelphia" is more classic-styled sound library funk – a hip piano line at the start, just waiting to be sampled – while a bassline dips in and out next to funky drums – before the tune all comes together and hits this wicked midtempo funky groove, complete with a saxophone solo in the middle! A pricey single – but definitely quality throughout. 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Alessandro AlessandroniSangue Di Sbirro ... CD
Cinedelic (Italy), 1977. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the funkiest soundtracks we've ever heard from Alessandro Alessandroni – a set that clearly shows he'd been listening to the score for Shaft, as well as a host of 70s sound library music too! There's lots of great Italian cop/crime grooves on the set – done at an understated level that's almost better than more familiar work of the genre – often strongly focused on the core rhythms, which are lean and plenty darn funky – bad-stepping with instrumentation that's often small combo funky jazz more than it is the bigger orchestrations of American cop scores. Titles include "Cop's Blood", "Amusement", "Duke Soul Jazz", "Tema Di Susie", "Club Jazz", "Palance", "Knell", "Sbirro In Fuga", and "Luxury". CD

Beat (Italy), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the grooviest racing soundtracks we've ever heard – a set that's a lot more funky than some of the better-known racetrack film scores that were coming into the racks during the late 60s! The vibe here is almost a bit like some of the sound library material of Alessandro Alessandroni – lots of great melodic elements, wrapped around rhythms that are nice and slinky on the slower moments, and downright funky on the faster ones – mostly instrumental, but with just a bit of vocals at points from I Cantori Moderni – that very cool harmony group that Alessandroni used on many recordings. The instrumentation is never too complex, and the focus feels more small combo than some of the larger orchestrations on Italian scores at the time – served up here in an assortment of 17 tracks from the film!

✨✧ Alessandro AlessandroniE Il Suo Complesso ... CD
Sonor (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A gorgeous bit of bossa jazz from Italy – and a key non-soundtrack album from the great Alessandro Alessandroni! The session's a bit more jazz-based than some of Alessandroni's soundtrack work from the 60s, but in a good way – one that really opens up the tunes, and provides for some spontaneous improvisation that only deepens their spirit and sound. The lovely Edda Dell'Orso sings wordless vocals on a number of tracks – scatting in a cool and groovy way that's almost even better than her famous soundtrack recordings. Some tracks have organ, others have acoustic piano – but the whole thing's grooving very nicely all the way through – with the kind of dreamy dreamy sound we'd rank right up there with the best coming out of Italy at the time! Titles include "Meccanico", "Primavera", "Introverso", "Bossa Italiana", "Beat For Love", "Hammurabi", and "Psichedelico". CD

✨✧ Alessandro AlessandroniOpen Air Parade ... CD
SR/Sonor (Italy), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A gem of a sound library record from one of the all-time greats – and maybe one of the few artists who gave his equal all, whether he was cutting a full film soundtrack, or just a discreet batch of tracks like these in the studio! The music is as groovy as groovy can be – sometimes funky, sometimes slinky – and done in this blend of heavy electric bass, nicely snapping drums, riffing guitar, and some great use of wordless vocals – maybe no surprise, since Alessandroni was the man behind the legendary I Cantori Modern! There's a great sense of variety all the way through – all killer, no filler – and titles include "Vocalisation", "Spiagge Azzurre", "Aliante Giallo", "Ciclamino", "Arioso Spirituale", "Cielo Verde", and "Marmittone".

✨✧ Alessandro AlessandroniRitmo Dell'Industria #2 ... LP
Grand Prix/BTF (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The sound of industry, circa 1969 Italy – which means that everything sounds a heck of a lot groovier than you might expect! Soundtrack genius Alessandro Alessandroni handled the album – and it's completely fantastic right from the very first note – nothing like an industrial album, nor even some of the peppier "industry themed" sound library sets of the European postwar theme – and instead, the music is full of jazzy elements and cool wordless vocals – especially those scatting styles you'd know from Alessandroni's work with I Cantori Modern! Tremendous throughout – and quite possibly one of the grooviest albums the composer has ever given us. Titles include "Moto Blues", "Dialogando", "Circolazione", "Basso Regime", "Vie Motrici", "Escursione", and "Numero Uno". LP, Vinyl record album

Four Flies (Italy), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Stunning rare work from Alessandro Alessandroni – a soundtrack talent who first flourished in the 60s, but really hit his stride in the sound library scene of the 70s! Alessandroni has a great way here of mixing the warm and the sweet, the funky and the melodic – tunes that are short and simple, but always pretty darn groovy – with a sweet, slinky style that's a great extension of the funkier modes of both French and Italian cinema at the start of the 70s – well-placed basslines that really set the score, peppered with just the right bits on guitar or keyboards – and never overdone, so that the grooves are spacious enough to really let you appreciate all the right touches! Titles include "Watergate", "Mitzi", "Sunny Coast", "Pure Nature", "Blue Waves", "Young America", "High Class", "Meadows", and "Life Tree". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Alessandro AlessandroniTrip Around The World (180 gram yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
Stella/Saar Milano (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Beautiful sounds from one of the coolest Italian composers of all time – one of our go-to favorites for both soundtrack and sound library material! This set has Alessandro Alessandroni hitting some sweet 70s modes – funky at times, slinky and sexy at others – all with this fantastic ear for sound and space, with a quality level that really sets him apart – and which makes this totally obscure gem every bit as great as some of the key Italian cinematic classics from the period! Imagine – you're working in the very solitary space of a sound library, knowing that you're going to make a record that will never be for sale in the record racks – yet you completely bring your a-game to the proceedings. That's what makes Alessandroni such a giant – and we're sure you'll agree once you hear this music! The set features some great harmonica bits from Gianfranco Di Lelio, plus cool keyboards, guitar, and titles that include "My Sitar", "Seven Steps", "A Day In The Sun", "Oceano", "Everest", "Beach Party", "Summer Breeze", "Desert Inn", and "Love On The Sand".

✨✧ Alessandro Alessandroni/Ennio MorriconeIl Giro Del Mondo Degli Innamorati Di Peynet ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A mid 70s Italian cartoon, but one that features some great soundtrack work from Ennio Morricone and Alessandro Alessandroni – each of whom bring a slightly different feel to the set! Morricone composed the film's main love theme – "Forse Basta" – a beautiful number that has all the compressed, slow-stepping brilliance of some of the maestro's more familiar 70s numbers – somewhat sweet, but with a subtle undercurrent of sadness that's really great too. Alessandroni takes off from this mode with his other work on the set – staying sweet at points, but also really opening up into a range of more playful modes – sometimes funky or fuzzy, sometimes more romping, all in ways that nicely match the action in the cartoon. I Cantori Moderni sing on a few numbers that have a straighter, lyrical sound – and the CD features a whopping 38 titles in all, including 8 versions of "Forse Basta", plus "Latino Americana", "Bethlem", "Serata Al Bolscioi", "Amore E Birra", "Sirtaki Dei Colonnelli", "Fiori Gialli", "Dal Tirolo Con Affeto", and "Deserto Di Elam".

✨✧ Alessandro Alessandroni/Francesco DeMasiLesbo (180 gram limited edition pressing) ... LP
Beat/BTF (Italy), 1969. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Sexy ladies on the cover, and some equally sexy sounds underneath – served up in a perfect 60s Italian blend of jazz and bossa-based styles! Sweeping strings bring a nice sense of depth to some numbers, while others have a more intimate feel – either via spare guitar, or some jazzy elements on piano, sax, and organ – shifting instrumentation that really keeps things interesting throughout, and which makes the record feel like some rich narrative on its own, in sound – without any need for the images on the screen. The whole thing is wonderful – one of those Italian soundtrack treasures that delivers even more than it promises – and music was composed by Alessandro Alessandroni and Francesco De Masi, then orchestrated by De Masi, with some cool wordless vocal moments as well. Titles include a number of variations on "Lesbo" plus the sweet vocal opener "Qualsiasi Cosa", "Crepuscolo Sul Mare", and "IL'Isola Dell'Amore". LP, Vinyl record album

Great remixes of two funky tracks from a 70s soundtrack by Alessandro Alessandroni – both of which retain all their original warmth and charm! First up is "Manhattan", done in both a "nightclub" and "daylight" version – the first of which has a really deep bassline peppered with all this cool riffing guitar – the latter with maybe a starker vibe that shows the reality of the tune in the light of the day! Next is "Philadelphia" – again in night and day versions – a slinky, funky blend of piano and keyboards on the am take – and a bit clubbier and with some jazzy flute on the pm version! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Braen's MachineQuarta Pagina (plus bonus CD) ... LP
Liuto/Schema (Italy), 1971. New Copy ... $28.99 29.99
Stunning sound library material from Braen's Machine – one of the coolest, grooviest, and most obscure acts that were part of this underground Italian scene in the 70s! Quarta Pagina follows into even more trippier territory than the group's famous Underground album – a wild blend of psychedelic elements with hip soundtrack styles – the kinds of aspects that Piero Umiliani and Alessandro Alessandroni brought to the group, but with an even weirder feel. Track are all nice and compact – no overindulgent jams, but there's still a wonderful range of sounds in the short tunes – and most numbers are vocals, filled with guitars, keyboards, and loads of odd elements – but there also seems to be an Edda Dell'Orso-like singer in a few spots too. Titles include "Frode", "Addescamento", "Rimorso", "Il Covo", "La Vittima", and "Nel Penitenziario". LP, Vinyl record album

Braen's MachineTemi Ritmici E Dinamici (with bonus CD) ... LP
Liuto/Schema (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99 32.99
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

An album with a sepia-toned, industrial-looking cover – but a set that's full of life and organic color throughout – jazzy grooves with plenty of warmth, and a sound that's right up there with the best of the Italian soundtrack scene of the early 70s! That's maybe no surprise, as the instrumentation here includes work from the legendary I Marc 4 combo, plus some occasional wordless vocals from I Cantori Modern – interpreting the compositions of Rino De Fillippi in a blend of fast rhythms, groovy instrumentation, and sensuous colors that are completely sublime! The whole thing's great – very similar to some of the best Alessandro Alessandroni sound library albums – and titles include "Montaggio A Catena", "Agraria", "Calcolatore Elettronico", "Benessere Industriale", and "Complesso Tessile".

The whole thing's pretty damn eerie – about as eerie as the movie, which is a real stunner – and it shifts from dark orchestral themes to sparer numbers that use guitar, banjo, and some really creepy whistling to set the mood. Some tracks feature vocal work by I Cantorni Moderni, directed by Alessandro Alessandroni – and titles include "C'Era Una Volta Il West", "Cheyenne", "Armonica", "L'Uomo Dell'Armonica" and "L'America Di Jill".

A soundtrack as striking as it's cover image – and a real lesser-known western gem from Ennio Morricone! The music balances a broad number of styles here – from darkly chanting vocals, to warmer mellower strings, to elements that more playfully evoke a sense of time and place – augmented from time to time by harmonica from Franco De Gemini and whistling and guitar from Alessandro Alessandroni – both two of Morricone's best partners in music at the time! CD features excellent sound, and lots of bonus tracks – 24 selections in all – and titles include "Il Pinguino", "La Messicana", "Vamos A Matar Companeros", "Cecchino", and "La Lora Patria". CD

Piero UmilianiSweden – Heaven & Hell (Svezia – Inferno E Paradiso) ... LP
Omicron/Schema (Italy), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99 34.99
One of the greatest soundtracks ever from the mighty Piero Umiliani – sounds initially written for a film that was an international "sexpose" of daily life in Sweden – but which have grown to even greater fame on their own over the years – thanks to the talent of the maestro! The music here is awash in groovy elements – lots of sweet Hammond organ lines, mod basslines, and some especially cool wordless vocals from the choir of Alessandro Alessandroni – scatting away in a great way alongside the instruments, and bringing an added level of breathy eroticism to the whole thing! This special LP version recreates the original Omicron release of the record – with titles that include the two lyrical tracks "You Tried To Warn Me" and "Sleep Now Little One", sung by Lydia McDonald – plus the tracks "Topless Party", "Eva Svedense", "Essere Donna", "La Signora Cameriera", "FotoModelle", and "Le Ragazze Dell'Archipellago". (Note, does not contain the track "Mah Na Mah Na", which is on other versions of the soundtrack – but it appears on the "partner" reissue of Umiliani's Psichedelica from Schema, under the title "Viva La Sauna Svedese".)

VariousBellissima – More 60s She Pop From Italy ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $14.99 19.98
Very cool sounds from the 60s scene in Italy – music that's clearly inspired by the best British female pop of the period, and also a bit by Detroit soul – with maybe just a touch of French "yeh yeh" modes thrown in for good measure! Yet because the sounds come from a scene that was also reinventing the sound of movies with its studio genius, there's also a really special vibe going on here – in part because the music often features contributions from soundtrack and sound library maestros – including Nora Orlandi, Berto Pisano, Alessandro Alessandroni, Bruno Nicolai, and others – who put these tunes together with a wonderfully spacious, wonderfully creative vibe – which really helps take them past their basic musical influences. The set list is every bit as well-chosen as the Ace Records collections of 60s French female pop – and titles include "Il Beat Cos'E" by La Ragazza, "Cartoline" by Mina, "Le Ragazze Semplici" by Orietta Berti, "E Proprio Inutile" by Meri Marabini, "Coccodrillo" by Ornella Vanoni, "Se Mi Vuoi Mi Vuoi" by Catherine Spaak, "Il Treno" by Rita Pavone, "A Me Piace Lui" by Vibeke, "Come Ti Vorrei" by Iva Zanicchi, "Tamburino Ciao" by Milva, "Zero In Amore" by Gigliola Cinquetti, "Il Paradiso" by Patty Pravo, and "Una Stanza Vuota" by Lisa Gastoni.

Four Flies (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $31.99 44.99
A great entry in this very groovy series – one that shifts the title a bit from previous volumes, and which also moves the music a bit too – but all while staying pretty darn funky! The set's got much more of a 70s soundtrack vibe than some of the other entries – loads of great keyboards, heavy basslines, riffing guitar, and other elements that are often used in ways that remind us of the bigger blacksploitation and crime/cop work of the decade – but cooler, hipper, and a lot more obscure! Titles include "La Professoressa Di Scienze Naturali" by Alessandro Alessandroni, "Addio Ultimo Uomo" by Franco Godi, "Uragno Sulle Bermuda" by Stelvio Cipriani, "L'Occhio Dietro La Parete" by Pippo Caruso, "A Pugni Nudi" by Franco Bixio/Fabio Frizzi/Vince Tempera, "Le Evase" by Pippo Caruso, "La Sbandata" by Domenico Modugno & Gianni Oddi, "Afrika Erotika" by Alessandro Blonksteiner, "Nove Ospiti Per Un Delitto" by Carlo Savina, and "Maladolescenza" by Pippo Caruso.

Cometa (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $32.99 36.98
Not much of a cover, but that's usually the way it is with the Cometa Sound Library – who provided all the great grooves on this set! Cometa was one of the more obscure sound library labels on the 70s scene – but they also maybe lasted the longest, perhaps because they were small – and they managed to forge relations with some of the best composers from the Italian film scene at the time – who bring to their recordings a wealth of cool instrumental touches and unusual elements that rival our favorite soundtracks! This set follows the full scope of the Cometa sound – some numbers are funky, some are jazzy, some are dreamy, and one even gets a bit disco – and titles include "Il Caso Bebawi" by Berto Pisano, "Colpi Di Piume E Tempesta" by Ennio Morricone, "American Sound" by Alessandro Alessandroni & Sandro Brugnoli, "Macchina D'Amore" by Armando Trovajoli, "Dolce Notte" by Luigi Zito, and "Policeman" by Tito Schipa & Giovanni Tommaso.

Four Flies (Italy), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sunny grooves with a fantastic sound – music that echoes some of our favorite Italian soundtracks of the 60s and 70s – but most of it previously unreleased! The work here is from undertapped sources of the period – not some of the oft-compiled songs from the Italian soundtrack/sound library reissue scene of the past decade or two – but instead lots of fresh tracks that really throw open the gates – with strong quality tracks that are awash in lots of groovy elements! Music is both acoustic and electric, often with a fair bit of jazz or bossa nova influences – and in contrast to some sound library collections that go for the darker side of the spectrum, these tracks are all as warm as you might guess from the title. Tracks include "Don Milani" by Alessandro Alessandroni, "Cugine Mie" by Nico Fidenco, "Gideon" by Alberto Baldan Bembo, "Camorra" by Manuel De Sica, "Pensiero D'Amore" by Mario Migliardi, "Gisposta A Tutto" by Gianni Marchetti, "Mondo Di Notte Oggi" by Gianni Oddi Gianni Dell'Orso, "Un Uomo Dalla Pelle Dura" by Carlo Pes, and "Verso La Droga" by Sandro Brugnolini.

✨✧ Perry ComoLightly Latin/In Italy/Look To Your Heart/Seattle ... CD
BGO/RCA (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Four late 60s gems from Perry Como – all records that really have him pushing beyond his pop style of the 50s! First up is Lightly Latin – one of the most sublime albums we've ever heard from Perry Como – a set that definitely takes its Latin lightly, and instead really goes for the best sort of mellow side of the Como sound! There's definitely a few bossa touches in the mix – a bit of acoustic guitar or light percussion – but they're added in very sparely, and couched with a beautifully subtle wall of sound from arranger Nick Perito, who works here with a lot more understatement than on some other records. Como's vocals are very far from pop – and the album brings out his maturing style wonderfully with a spacious, soft-toned style of production. Titles include "Dindi", "Once I Loved", "Stay With Me", "How Insensitive", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", "Baia", and "Manha De Carnaval". Next is Perry Como In Italy – one of the most haunting albums we've ever heard from Perry Como – a session recorded in Italy during the mid 60s – featuring arrangements by Nick Perito, and backing vocals by the Alessandro Alessandroni Singers! The tunes include a fair bit of older Italian numbers – some sung in the language of their origin, some in English translations that we've come to know on this side of the Atlantic – and Como takes them all with a sad-tinged style that makes the album one of his moodiest ever – a record that oozes melancholy with every song, and which has a late nite, heartbreaking appeal that goes beyond even the understanding of language. The set's a great one to convey the popularity of Italian work on the American market in the 60s – and Como carries off the session even better than some of the more likely singers on the scene during the period. Titles include "Souvenir D'Italie", "Forget Domani", "Anema E Core", "One Day Is Like Another", "Arrivederci Roma", "Oh Marie", and "E Lei". Look To Your Heart is the kind of record that moves so far beyond familiar pop vocalizations, it's almost like Perry's in a universe all by himself! The words seem to just be sneaking out of the singer's voice – these mutterings that are almost to himself, which makes his readings of the tunes feel even more personal than you might expect – even amidst larger backings from Nick Perito – like Como is off to the side of the room, ruminating on love lost and life lived! That quality comes through tremendously on the eerie "Father Of Girls" – a tune that's worth the price of admission alone – and other titles include "Try To Remember", "Look To Your Heart", "In These Crazy Times", "Sunrise Sunset", and "When You're In Love". Seattle is a record that has Perry Como taking on a bit of a country tinge at times – working with Chet Atkins production that almost seems as if the singer is trying to match the Dean Martin spirit of the late 60s, right down to phrasing that feels a bit like ol Dino himself! A few other cuts have more familiar Como modes, with backings by Nick Perito – and titles include the lively title cut "Seattle", plus "Happiness Comes Happiness Goes", "Together Forever", "Sunshine Wine", "Deep In Your Heart", "Hearts Will Be Hearts", "Turnaround", and "Beady Eyed Buzzard".

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeFor A Few Dollars More (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
AMS (Italy), 1965. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An archetypal record all the way through – with some of the best Morricone western styles from the period – and still one of the greatest in its genre! To match the darkness of the film, Morricone's working here in a spare, stark mode – using bits of guitar and whistling to state the themes of the tunes in a simple, yet dramatic way. The legendary Alessandro Alessandroni handles both of these aspects of the record – as well as the I Cantori Moderni choir which sings on a few numbers too. Edda Dell'Orso lends her haunting, wordless vocal, too – and the titles include "Per Qualche Dollaro In Piu","La Resa Dei Conti", "Psserviatori Osservati", "Il Corpo", "Poker D'Assi", "Carillon", "Addio Colonnello" and Il Visio Di Uccidere". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousEsterno Notte Vol 2 – More Jazz-Funk, Late Nite Breaks, Cinematic Prog & Psych From The Italian Untapped Film Music Archives 1968 to 1978 (180 gram pressing – with bonus CD) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Freaky funk from the Italian scene – exactly the kind of grooves that will open your ears if you think that funky sounds can only come from American soul bands or jazz musicians! The music here is filled with heavy drums, tight basslines, and lots of other groovy instrumental touches – offbeat keyboards, riffing guitars, and other instrumentation that's sometimes given these odd psychedelic touches by the studio maestros who were putting together the cuts at the time – some of which were used in obscure soundtracks, and a number of which appear here for the first time ever! This isn't the overly-familiar film music territory of other collections – and instead, most of this music is completely fresh – even for the longtime collector – presented in a great package that includes the cuts "Anastasia Mio Fratello" by Piero Piccioni, "Un Uomo Dalla Pelle Dura" by Carlo Pes, "La Mano Lunga Del Padrino" by Silvano D'Auria, "L'Arbitro" by Guido & Maurizio DeAngelis, "La Liceale Nella Classe Dei Ripetenti" by Gianni Ferrio, "L'Altro Dio" by Alessandro Alessandroni, "Giovane Clan" by Sandro Brugnolini, "La Profonda Luce Dei Sensi" by SEverino Gazzelloni, and "Calamo" by Claudio Tallino. LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio MorriconeSenza Movemente ... LP
Quartet (Spain), 1971. New Copy ... $44.99
Beautifully slow-building work from Ennio Morricone – caught right at that near-perfect start of the 70s point when he was a master of understatement and spare musical elements! Many numbers begin with a sound that's often very spare – sliding out of the darkness sometimes with just a whisper, sometimes with a bit more force – woodwinds hidden in the shadows, piano murmuring softly, or strings that slide slowly once, then strike with more force the next time around. There's also a cool whistling bit that snakes through a few of the best tunes – a haunting theme with Alessandroni-type appeal – and the orchestrations for the album were conducted by Bruno Nicolai. The sound isn't as sweetly gliding as you might expect, but it's also not as atonal as other Morricone moments too. Titles include "In Pieno Petto", "Il Movente (2)", "Senza Motivo Apparente", "Ricera", "Ricera (2)", "Sospensione Folle", and "In Pieno Petto (2)". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 300!)
