Piero UmilianiAtmospheres ... LP
Liuto/Musica Per Immagini (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $39.99
An album that really lives up to its title – as the range of experimental electronics on the set really deliver the atmospheres you might expect from the name! Piero Umiliani really pushes himself here – furthering his electronic experiments of the 70s by starting first with recordings of acoustic percussion, then layering in live electric touches – keyboards and other elements that have a more spontaneous feel than you might expect, and which shift nicely in colors and tones from track to track! There's a great sense of variety here, but also a really unified approach, given the similar approach to each cut – and at some level, there's an overall sound that almost seems to point the way towards 80s horror scoring – proof again that Umiliani was always years ahead of his time! Titles include "Cosmologia", "Oceani", "Funesti Presagi", "Gotico", "Festa Pagana", "Dolomiti", "Area Del Terrore", "Cibernetica", and "Colotura Virus". LP, Vinyl record album

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 UmilianiPercussioni Ed Effetti Speciali (with bonus CD) ... LP
Liuto/Schema (Italy), 1972. New Copy 2LP Gatefold & CD (reissue)... $29.99 34.98
Percussion and special effects – a really wonderful blend, especially in the hands of Italian maestro Piero Umiliani! The album's one of Piero's more experimental and electronic outings – done for the Liuto sound library label, with lots of cool production techniques that make the drums and percussion nice and echoey, and just ripe for layers of keyboards and electronics, too! And although the record is experimental, it's often quite groovy – in the best Umiliani manner, with a few funky passages stepping out of space as well – in a blend of acoustic, electric, and cosmic that reminds us of some of the sci-fi soundtrack work of Peter Thomas. Titles include "Ritmi In swing", "Timbales", "Protesta Giovanile", "Bongos In Suspense", "Dinimica In Beat", "Dinemica In Tensione", "Organo In Suspense", "Fascia Metallica", "Battimenti", and "Esplosioni".

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".

Also available Africa ... LP 29.99

✨✧ Braen's MachineTemi Ritmici E Dinamici (with bonus CD) ... LP
Liuto/Schema (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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
(Includes bonus CD of full album!)

✨✧ Braen's MachineUnderground (with bonus CD) ... LP
Liuto/Schema (Italy), 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Heavy fuzz with a good deal of funk as well – a very unique set from the Italian sound library scene – and one that comes across with the feel of some lost psych record from the underground! The album was produced by Piero Piccioni – and features soundtrack/sound library maestros Alessandro Alessandroni and Oronzo De Filippi, working as the pseudonymous Braen and Gisteri – in a batch of heavy drums and basslines, topped with lots of fuzzed up guitar – but all with a tightness that's a lot more forward-moving than the usual set of this nature! Things never get to overdone, but still go plenty far out – and titles include "Flying", "Imphormal", "Murder", "Gap", "New Experiences", "Fall Out", "Description", and "Obstinacy". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the album on CD!)

✨✧ Braen's MachineQuarta Pagina (plus bonus CD) ... LP
Liuto/Schema (Italy), 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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
