Group (Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza)Feed-Back (with bonus CD) ... LP
RCA/Schema (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy ... $26.99 32.99
One of the best records ever from the Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza – an obscure side project of Ennio Morricone and other Italian composers – working here in a freaky, psychedelic setting! The album mixes sonic experiments with fuzzy guitars, freaky keyboards, and some surprisingly funky rhythms at times – at a level that's even more compelling than some of the group's other projects – especially given that the album's three tracks are all quite long, with lots of room for instrumental experimentation! Yet as in some of the best prog work of the period – such as by Can or Faust – there's a sense of focus and groove that really holds the whole thing together. And given that these guys had already had years of experience in the studio – on both sides of the production booth – they really have a wonderful ear for extremely inventive sounds. Titles include "Kumalo", "The Feed-Back", and "Quasars". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the album on CD!)

✨✧ Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova ConsonanzaNiente ... LP
Gemelli/Roundtable (Australia), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An amazing lost album from the legendary Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza – a sextet of Italian modernists that included Ennio Morricone! The album may well be the group's grooviest ever – recorded right after their legendary Feed-back set, and done with a similar blend of compelling rhythms and odd instrumentation – in ways that are undeniably funky at points, and downright trippy at others! The drumming seems to draw a lot from the changes in German prog – with a very specific Can influence at work – and other elements move in and out of the mix in a really great way – clearly improvisational, but when the groove gets going, it's clear that the players also can't help starting to jam. The record was recorded in 1971, but never issued at the time – and titles include "Niente", "Bambu", "Toms", "Renitenza", "Mattatoio", "Down", "Sieben", and "Bali". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gruppo Improvvisazione Nuova ConsonanzaEroina (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Cometa (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Rare work from this legendary Italian improvisational group – a lineup that features famous modernists Mario Bertoncini, Egisto Macchi, and Walter Bianchi – as well as soundtrack genius Ennio Morricone! The sounds are quite dark and abstract – often somewhere out in the space of Morricone's more atonal soundtracks from the early 70s, but even looser overall – as you can feel the improvisational energy of the players coming together – feeling out space between spare percussion, strings, and horns. The record actually has one famous funky number – "Haschich", which has this amazing break underneath some off-tuned sitar and other odd noises – but most other tracks are much darker and more outside. Other titles include "Orgasmo", "Eroina", "Aghi", "Warum", "Raptus", and "Stridori" – plus another take on "Haschich". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 300 – on clear vinyl!)

✨✧ Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova ConsonanzaGruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza (1965) ... LP
Cinevox (Italy), 1965. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the most obscure chapters in the career of Ennio Morricone – important avant garde work recorded in the mid 60s, just at a point when he was beginning to rise in soundtrack fame! The ensemble is a key Italian modernist group featuring Morricone, Giovanni Piazza, Mario Bertoncini, Egisto Macchi, Gualtiero Branch, Jesus Villa Rojo, and Francesco Evangelisti – mostly classically-trained musicians, but working here in a set of improvisations that are extremely spare, and which are very much at the lower end of the sound spectrum. Many of the sounds on the set are right at the frontiers of hearing – and others, while more present, disappear as quickly as they emerge – further enforcing the mystery and mood of the record. And while the overall style is quite different than Morricone's soundtrack work, the group was clearly a key testing ground for his ideas of sound and space that emerged later. Titles include "Soup", "Scratch", "Settimino", and "Eflot". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ennio Morricone/Gruppo Improvvisazione NuovaGli Occhi Freddi Della Paura (aka Cold Eyes Of Fear) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Tiger Bay (UK), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A dark and extremely avant garde soundtrack from the great Ennio Morricone – one that's done in collaboration with his own Gruppo Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza – an ensemble with roots in film scoring, but expressions that are more in the mode of 20th century avant! The music is a blend of free improvisation and more straight ahead jazz – with electric guitar, trumpet, violin, and percussion mixed with lots of weird effects and electronics – much more experimental than some of Morricone's more famous soundtracks of the time, and given a nice sense of direction from conductor Bruno Nicolai. The whole thing's incredibly spooky – one of the most turgid scores we've ever heard from the pen of Morricone – and the titles include "Sequita", "Evaporazione", "Dal Sogno E Ritorno", "Folle Folle", and "Notte E Misteri".

Bruno NicolaiEspressioni (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Gemelli/Loneos Editions (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $31.99
Some of the darkest work we've ever heard from Bruno Nicolai – an Italian soundtrack composer who's usually in the more groovy side of the spectrum – but who here proves that he can be as moody and offbeat as his frequent musical partner, Ennio Morricone! The tunes have some occasional swinging moments, but often move into more offbeat, atonal modes – such as those explored by Morricone in his tenser horror soundtracks, or in his music with Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza – the latter of whom would be a great comparison to the sound of this set. We've always loved Nicolai's music, and we're even more impressed that he can come up with work of this nature too – especially when he still finds a way to make things feel slightly cinematic. Titles include "Simbolica", "Risolutiva", "Metodica", "Vocale", "Immaginativa", and "Integrante". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 400!)
