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 UmilianiLa Ragazza Dalla Pelle Di Luna (with bonus CD) ... LP
Omicron/Schema (Italy), 1970. New Copy LP & CD (reissue)... $28.99 32.98
Amazing work from the legendary Piero Umiliani – a perfect soundtrack to show the warmer sound of his talents, which are sometimes eclipsed by his weirder electronic modes! The soundtrack's from an erotic film starring sex-goddess Zeudi Araya, but despite the kinky origins of the material, the music's actually got a lot more sophistication than you'd expect – and the score feels more like a Morricone cerebral one than a cheesy sexy one – with dreamy wordless vocals floating around in the mix, and these sweet-stepping basslines that are especially wonderful – setting a slow funk current at great moments, in that Euro easy way of blending some hip bass with warmer strings and other instrumental touches. There's some haunting piano at points, too – and Umiliani has a great way of making the music sound emotive, but never sappy at all. Titles include "Pelle Di Luna", "Addio All'Isola Felice", "L'Ultima Spiaggia", "Seyga Seyga", "Nostalgia Dell'Isola", and "Tanto Tempo Fa". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes bonus CD of full album!)

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 UmilianiPsichedelica ... CD
Omicron/Schema (Italy), 1971. New Copy Gatefold ... $19.99 24.99
Not the sort of psychedelic music you'd expect from an American rock band of the late 60s – and instead, a stunning set of funky genius from Italian soundtrack maestro Piero Umiliani! The record's actually a precursor to Umiliani's famous global score for Sweden Heaven & Hell (Svezia Inferno E Paradiso) – and shares many of the themes that went onto that record, complete with romping funky rhythms, sweet jazzy Hammond lines, and mod fuzzy guitar! Many numbers are upbeat groovers, without any of the longform indulgence you'd expect from psychedelia – and Umiliani draws on his jazz background to allow just the right space for solo instruments to take the lead in the instrumental setting. Titles include "Birra Vermouth E Gin", "Contestazione", "Hippies", "Nel Cosmo", "Stoccolma My Dear", "Notte Di Mezza Estate", and "Viva La Sauna Svedese" – a version of the classic "Mah Na Mah Na".

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 UmilianiSweden – Heaven & Hell (Svezia – Inferno E Paradiso) ... LP
Omicron/Schema (Italy), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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".)

✨✧ Paul Chambers & John ColtraneHigh Step ... LP
Blue Note, Mid 50s/1975. Sealed 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Killer set of hardbop tracks recorded during the mid 50s for the Jazz West, Transition, and Blue Note labels – and seminal early work by Coltrane, playing under the leadership of his frequent bass partner Paul Chambers. One album was issued under the name of the Paul Chambers Quartet, another was issued as Whims Of Chambers, and the last batch of tracks was unissued until the time of this release. The whole thing's pretty darn great, and Trane plays with a nice rootsy relaxed style that you don't get from his Prestige recordings, made slightly after these. Titles include "Trane's Strain", "Omicron", "Nita", "Eastbound", and "Nixon, Dixon, & Yates Blues", a fantastic improvisation between Trane, Chambers, Pepper Adams, and Curtis Fuller! LP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed 70s pressing! Shrink is open along the spine, which is slightly faded – but this copy has never been opened.)

✨✧ Bud PowellParisian Thoroughfares ... CD
Pablo, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An assortment of recordings from Bud's legendary years in Paris – tracks recorded between 1957 and 1961, with players that include Clark Terry, Zoot Sims, Barney Wilen, Kenny Clarke, and Daniel Humair. Tracks are mostly short – about as short as those on Bud's studio sides from the time – but the album does feature two nice long cuts, versions of "Groovin High" and "Blue Bud Blues/52nd Street Theme", both of which run for around 12 minutes each. Other tracks include "Buzzy", "Shaw Nuff", "Omicron", "Yesterdays", and "No Problem". Tracks were previously released by Mythic Sound, but are represented here with new remastering! CD

✨✧ Piero UmilianiPiero Umiliani Library Music Vol 1 (13CD set) ... CD
Cinedelic (Italy), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 13CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stunning collection of work from the legendary Piero Umiliani – material that represents his rare sound library recordings, done after an initial rise to fame in the world of Italian soundtracks during the 60s! These recordings draw on all the musical genius and studio techniques that Piero perfected during his work on film – but the albums were all issued only as non-commercial sound library records, and never saw much circulation at the time – even though most of the sounds within are even more revolutionary that Umiliani's soundtracks! Much of the material was done in his famous Sound Workshop – and styles run from groovy, to experimental, to electronic, funk, and psychedelic – served up in different modes, depending on the nature of the album projects. Albums were originally issued on small labels that include Luito, Omega, Rovi, and Omicron – and this first volume features 13 full albums, each with original artwork – records that include Percussioni Ed Effetti Speciali, Underground, Temi Ritmici E Dinamici, Nuove Arie Romantiche, Classica Per L'Umo D'Oggi, Mondo Inquieto, Motivi Allegri E Distensivi, Discomusic, Tensione, Film Concerto, Panorama Italiano, Album Di Viaggio, and Suspence Elettronica. CD
(A beautiful set – comes in a wood box, with LP-styled sleeves and a booklet of notes – numbered edition of 500 copies!)
