Martin Davorin JagodicTempo Furioso ... LP
Cramps/Dialogo (Italy), 1975. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $34.99 39.99
One of the classics in Cramps' Nova Musicha series from the 70s – and some incredible electronic work that's right up there with the best of the legendary releases on the label! The album is one long work – filled with spare tones, phase shifts, and modulations, interspersed with piano playing and random sounds from the radio – all put together in ways that almost feel like some John Cage chance creation – but which also has more of a sense of 70s Italian minimalism too – an airy, slow-shifting brilliance that's very subtle, but completely compelling!

Steve LacyStraws ... LP
Cramps/Dialogo (Italy), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99 39.99
A beautiful Steve Lacy album recorded during his fruitful time in Europe during the 70s – and one that's nicely different than some of his other material of the decade! The approach here really fits in with the Cramps Records style of presentation – as Lacy is maybe in a more experimental mode at times, especially on two of the album's tracks that mix together soprano sax solos with work on tape – one track that features construction sounds, another with players trying out different reed instruments! Two more tunes feature some accompaniment on celeste – another unusual mode for Lacy – and two more are solo soprano sax performances. Titles include "Pinochle", "Straws", "Hemline", "The Rise", and "Feline". LP, Vinyl record album

David TudorMicrophone ... LP
Cramps/Dialogo (Italy), 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $34.99 39.99
A well-titled record from David Tudor – given the most of the material here is an exploration of space and sound through feedback! The album features two long tracks – "Mix A" and "Mix B" – and both appear to involve spare sounds in space, filtered through additional electronics – often with the effect of a microphone feeding back, then suddenly halted. Tudor manipulates the sounds enough to pull out some compelling waveforms, especially on "Mix B" – and the album offers up a much darker side of his music than you might expect from the early years. All sounds performed by Tudor – and recorded at the famous Center For Contemporary Music at Mills College! LP, Vinyl record album

Piero UmilianiContinente Nero ... CD
Omicron/Dialogo (Italy), 1975. New Copy ... $19.99 22.99
A second sound library trip to Africa by Italian sound library maestro Piero Umiliani – and one that's even groovier than the first! The music here follows a similar pattern – mixing elements of 70s sound library rhythms with some older exotic modes – a blend of electric and acoustic instrumentation that's really wonderful, and which feels a lot like some of the sexier 70s Italian soundtracks that were set in more exotic locales! There's plenty of percussion on the record, used in all these wonderful ways, and combined with flute, tenor sax, and other musical elements – served up on tunes that include "Oasi", "Tribalismo", "Flauto Africano", "Ultimo Stregone", "Riscossa", "Nel Villagiio", "Nuove Realta", and "Piffero Africano".

Piero UmilianiL'Uomo E La Citta (Man & The City) ... LP
Liuto/Dialogo (Italy), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99 34.99
A hip set of swinging urban tunes – recorded by Piero Umiliani in 1976, in a mode that recalls American "urban" jazz tributes from the 50s and 60s – especially some of the albums that were dedicated to New York! Yet the difference here is that he session's got a bit of a 70s sound – with some slight electric instrumentation, and some backings that feel a bit like they were lifted from a Lalo Schifrin soundtrack – an influence that's more than ok in our book! The work is quite different than some of Umiliani's mad 60s work – but no less great, and a welcome addition to his rich catalog of work. The record is definitely one of Piero's jazziest from the 70s – thanks to work from Italian legends who include Oscar Valdambrini, Bruno Tommaso, and Dino Piano – on titles that include "Citta Amica", "Citta Frenetica", "Viadotti", "Piazza Di Siena", "L'Uomo E La Citta", "Rete Urbana", "Suoni Della Citta", and "Centrali Termiche".

Piero UmilianiPolinesia ... LP
Omicron/Dialogo (Italy), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99 34.99
A mystical trip through the south seas – courtesy of Italian soundtrack composer Piero Umiliani, working here in a rare sound library setting! The tracks are moody and ethereal – with lots of spare percussion, and some dreamy island-type touches – like floating voices, isolated strings, and even a bit of moog, used to create some nice 70s exotica! There's one or two tracks that get harder-hitting, taking the percussion over the top with some snapping grooves – but most are in a 70s update of older exotica styles, including some of those that Piero might have used on some of his 60s soundtracks! Titles include "Tamburi Di Guerra", "Esorcismi", "Plenilunio", "Erbe Magiche", "Benvenuti All'Isola", "Canoe", "Sotto Le Palme", and "Pellegrinaggio Al Totem". LP, Vinyl record album

Piero Umiliani (Rovi)Pianofender Blues ... LP
Omicron/Dialogo (Italy), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99 34.99
A great set of keyboard work from the legendary Piero Umiliani – and one that's definitely heavy on the Fender Rhodes promised in the title! Piero first started out with a more jazz-based sound in the 60s, and that definitely returns here – but updated nicely with a sweet set of 70s electric keys – used here in ways that move between funky jazz, gentler bossa numbers, and a whole range of other styles that fit very nicely on the groovier side of the sound library spectrum! As with most of Umiliani's music during the decade, this album wasn't commercially released at all – just done as a sound library session under the name of Rovi – but pure Piero all the way through, on titles that include "Medium Cool", "Honey Moon", "Jolly", "Pianofender Blues", "Proposal", "Good Job", "Dark Blues", and "Atmosphere".

Piero Umiliani (Zalla)Africa ... CD
Liuto/Dialogo (Italy), 1972. New Copy ... $18.99 22.99
A totally wonderful set of sound library work from the legendary Piero Umiliani, working here under the name of Zalla – a set that mixes his great ear for electronic elements with some warm acoustic instrumentation too – a blend of percussion, baritone flute, and even a bit of marimba – the last of which is employed to resonate with balafon styles from Africa! The approach is great – kind of an extension of the soundtrack styles that Umiliani did in the 60s, with a 70s-styled take on exotica – maybe a bit like the famous EMI Studio 2 albums from Mandingo. There's some great jazz players in the lineup too – including flute work from Gino Marianacci, whose tone is tremendous – and titles include "Savana", "Green Dawn", "Sortilege", "Echoes", "Folk Tune", "Drums Suspense", "Africa To-Day", and "Rhythmical Stress".

✨✧ Alvin LucierBird & Person Dyning ... LP
Get Back/Dialogo (Italy), 1975. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A haunting performance of two different soundpieces by composer Alvin Lucier – recorded at the Electronic Music Center at Wesleyan University in the 70's, with assistance by Nicholas Collins and Ron Kuivila! "The Duke Of York" features a recitation by Lucier – slowly building up with some great electronics, into a level that's almost completely abstract at the end. "Bird & Person Dyning" is much more dramatic at the start – with weird electronic birdcalls from Lucier, which are then further abstracted as the work goes on. Both tracks are great – and a prime example of the composer at his best. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Costin MiereanuLuna Cinese ... LP
Cramps/Dialogo (Italy), 1975. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A fantastic record that's very much part of the strong legacy of sonic exploration we love in the legendary Cramps record label – served up in a space that goes way beyond music, and is still as groundbreaking now as it was when issued back in the 70s! Costin Mierenau is partly working here in a collision of two sorts of sonic spaces – natural, organic sounds that have a sense of calm and constancy – mixed with more random, urban sounds – of the sorts you might hear in the background of a city, as machines operate, vehicles move, and conversations take place. Almost all of the sources of the record are beyond the range of easy identification – which makes the juxtaposition of the sonic experiment even more powerful – as if city and country have been stripped down to their core!

✨✧ SpiraleSpirale ... LP
Dialogo (Italy), 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A hell of a record from the Italian scene of the 70s – a heavy set of electric jazz with a soaring, righteous sort of vibe – served up by a quintet who somehow manage to work as if they've got the spirit of a much larger ensemble! We don't know any of the players at all from other records, but they come together wonderfully here – a lineup that includes trumpet and trombone from Gaetano Delfini, saxes and flute from Giancarlo Maurino, Fender Rhodes and piano from Corrado Nofri, bass from Peppe Caporello, and drums from Giampaolo Ascolese – all players who draw a lot more from the spiritual jazz underground of the time than some of the more prog-based acts on the Italian scene. Most tracks are nice and long, with a really soaring sort of vibe – and titles include "Peperoncino", "Rising", "Cabral Anno 1", and the shorter ballad "Una Ballata Per Yanez". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Horacio VaggioneLa Maquina De Cantar ... LP
Cramps/Dialogo (Italy), 1978. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A really cool album from the legendary run of records on the Italian Cramps label of the 70s – a set of spare keyboard work from Horacio Vaggione, and one that falls somewhere in between American minimalism and some of the John Carpenter keyboard horror soundtracks of the time! Vaggione's keyboards are very cyclical and move in repeating lines – a bit like Terry Riley at times, but with more of an edge too – especially when things are more electronic than electric. There's a bit more of that at the start of the record, then things take off a bit more at the end – almost throwing in some proggy organ lines, but still with a very minimalist feel overall! Titles include "La Maquina De Cantar" and "Ending" – each taking up a side of the record. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Duke PearsonI Don't Care Who Knows It (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note/Wallen Bink (UK), 1968/1969/1970. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest albums ever from pianist Duke Pearson – recorded at a time when the musician was taking a bigger role at the Blue Note label, and started exploring some great musical territory in the process! The tracks here were all recorded in the late 60s – but not issued by the label until decades later, when they were pulled together in this fantastic double-length set – a record that comes as a real revelation. The work's quite different than Pearson's big band recordings, or his earlier soul jazz ones – and is a brilliant mix of Brazilian styles, electric instrumentation, complicated arrangements, and some of the more head-oriented jazz that was cropping up on Blue Note at the time – particularly some of the United States Of The Mind albums by Horace Silver! Silver's musical partner Andy Bey sings on the album's title cut – and other musicians include Frank Foster on tenor, Bobby Hutcherson on vibes, Wally Richardson on guitar, Jerry Dodgion on flute, Ralph Towner on acoustic guitar, and a young Airto on percussion. Titles include the fantastic "I Don't Care Who Knows It", a great version of "Canto De Ossanha", and the tracks "Bloos", "I Don't Know", "Captain Bacardi", "Rosemary's Baby", "Dialogo", "Upa Neguinho", and "Xibaba". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited to 1000 double vinyl copies.)
