Piero PiccioniBello, Onesto, Emigrato Australia Sposerebbe Compaesana Illibata (with bonus tracks) ... CD
GDM/Beat (Italy), 1971. New Copy ... $19.99
Italy meets Australia – in a lovely set of grooves written by Piero Piccioni for this little-seen Alberto Sordi film from 1971! The sound is as sunny as you'd expect – with the Piccioni bossa groove used to set the scene for postwar Australia – sometimes coming across with lighter, livelier tones, sometimes getting a bit lusher in the more serious parts – but always coming across with a great Italian soundtrack sparkle! There's some wonderful Italian bossa bits on the set – skipping out with some snapping snare bits, topped off by warm horn passages and some great use of electric keys! Titles include "La Gita In Barca", "L'Arrivo In Citta", "I Primi Approcci", "La Delusione Di Carmela", "Shopping In Sydney", "Il Sogno Di Carmela", and "Incontro All'Aeroporto". CD features 14 bonus tracks, most of which are previously unreleased! CD

✨✧ Piero PiccioniFumo Di Londra (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Octave (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... $24.99
One of the hippest Italian soundtracks of the 60s – and a motherlode of tracks by the great Piero Piccioni! The soundtrack is the source of the oft-compiled "Mr Dante Fontana", a nutty groover about the mod fashion scene in Italy – and it also features the famous tracks "Richmond Bridge" and "You Never Told Me". Most of the music is by Piccioni and the wonderful vocal group I Cantori Moderni, with Edda Dell'Orso on vocals – but the CD also features some work by Lydia Mac Donald, Julie Rogers, and Ennio Morricone. Includes a few versions of the "Fontana" and "Richmond", plus "Ascot Dream", "Magic Castle", "Tango Walk", "Drag Beat", "This Is Life", "Palace Parade March", "Babylon, I'm Coming", and "His Dream Has Come True". Very groovy – and this special Japanese CD features 33 tracks in all! CD

Piero PiccioniIl Boom ... LP
CAM (Italy), 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
Beautiful soundtrack work from Piero Piccioni – an early score, but filled with the kind of weird, offbeat sounds that have always made him a genius! There's a bit of a link here – between earlier Italian scoring, ala Nino Rota, and some of the later, modder sounds of Piccioni's late 60s generation – a really cool blend that comes through in the way the horns play with the rhythms, and the organ has a strange, almost outer-space sort of quality! One number has a cool batucada feel, and the whole thing's got a brilliant Italian cinematic quality – a true under-discovered gem from the great Piccioni. Titles include "Big Ben Boom", "Samba Della Ruota", "Nuovo Spleen Economico", "Organ Grinders Boom", and "Calypso Transistor". LP, Vinyl record album

Piero PiccioniIl Dio Sotto La Pelle (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Sonor/Musica Per Immagini (Italy), 1974. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $38.99
Beautiful grooves from the legendary Piero Piccioni – a set that's a great follow-up to some of his famous 60s work – touched with a few more sexy 70s touches than before, but in a way that's still extremely groovy! There's lots of electric piano lines on the set – almost a Stelvio Cipriani vibe at times – but these are mixed with fuller arrangements from Piero, with slinky woodwinds and some great rhythms that extrapolate styles from bossa nova, then go off in all these cool jazzy directions! The music was scored for a documentary of the "mondo" variety, but has a feel that's much more like the best love/sex soundtracks of the time – with titles that include "Katmandu", "Starless Sky", "Inventions", "It's Possible", "Nights To Come", "New Ways To Live", and "Love Will Find A Way". 2LP set features 12 bonus tracks – appearing here for the first time ever!

Piero PiccioniKenner/More Than A Miracle (3CD set) ... CD
Film Score Monthly, 1967/1969. Used 3CD ... $32.99
A double-header of material from Italian maestro Piero Piccioni – presented in a wonderfully rich, heavily-detailed style – the first time we've ever seen his music handled in the lavish Film Score Monthly manner! First up is the obscure soundtrack to Kenner – a late 60s Jim Brown film, done by Piero with a wonderfully sensitive soundtrack – really lovely woodwind interplay, with an undercurrent of jazz – almost a Johnny Mandel sort of mode, but with some of the occasional mod touches you'd expect from Piccioni on some of his better-known scores. There's some cuts that have a nicely pronounced soul jazz vibe – while others move between some lyrical sounds that are mighty sweet – and there's some bits that feature organ played with the raspy edges that always make Piero's handling of the instrument so different from others'. CD 1 features 32 tracks from Kenner – including some rare bonus material too – all conducted by Bruno Nicolai! CDs 2 and 3 feature More Than A Miracle, a dreamy little soundtrack by Piero Piccioni – not as mad as some of his more famous Italian work, but with plenty of nice touches! Piccioni's going for more of an atmospheric approach here with isolated instrumentation drifting over rhythmic string passages, in a way that's halfway between Ennio Morricone and Francis Lai. A few tracks have more whimsical musical touches – and the main theme is played by Roger Williams on piano with chorus backing. Titles include "The Chef", "The Tournament", "The Eggs Are Bewitched", "The Contest", "Prince Rodrigo", and "Rodrigo Leaves The Monastery". This expanded package features very detailed notes – and a whopping 70 tracks from the film – the full soundtrack album initially issued on MGM, 19 cuts from the film score itself, and an additional 36 bonus tracks too!

Piero PiccioniLa Citta Prigioniera (with bonus tracks) ... CD
CAM/Digitmovies (Italy), 1962. Used ... $11.99
A relatively early dramatic score from Piero Piccioni – yet one that also really shows his ongoing talent for scoring the urban landscape! The film is set in Athens during WWII, and Piccioni scores the scenes with this very melancholy style that indicates the unsure sense of victory at the moment – sometimes tentative in structure, with elements that hold back and blossom slowly – other times more brooding and turgid, as if lying in wait for greater action to take place! Titles include "Tema Di Una Conzione", "Campo Lungo", "Citta Prigioniera", "Variazione", "Pedalissimo", and "Climax". CD also features a whopping 22 bonus tracks added to the original album – all previously unissued! CD

Piero PiccioniLa Notte Brava ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1959. New Copy ... $18.99
A fantastic early soundtrack from maestro Piero Piccioni – very jazzy overall, in a style that merges postwar Rome with some of the groovier touches to come on the Italian scene! The tracks are mostly around the two minute mark, and work as these great jazz instrumentals on their own – with bits of guitar, tenor, and piano – amidst really well-crafted basslines that bring a nice moody quality to the whole thing – very much in the best style of the French new wave jazz soundtracks, but with some nice Roman touches too. The whole thing's a great illustration of how important jazz was to unlocking the next generation of Italian soundtracks in the 60s – and the CD features 30 tracks in all – a superb presentation of the material!

Piero PiccioniLe Streghe (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1966. New Copy ... $18.99
Music for a film about witches – but handled here with sounds that are a lot more dreamy than they are spooky – thanks to the fantastic 60s talents of maestro Piero Piccioni! There's lots of elements here that are kind of an extrapolation of bossa nova styles – both in terms of the melody and rhythms – but the instrumentation and production are Italian cinema at its best – with loads of compressed passages, floating isolated elements, and plenty of those other-worldly touches that can make the best Italian scores of the time sound way more than just the sum of their parts! The main melody is wonderful, and there's plenty of other great moments and groovers too – all packaged into a 32 track collection with really wonderful sound. CD

Music Box (France), 1978. Used ... $18.99
A groovy French-Italian co-production from the 70s – one that's scored with a very whimsical score by Piero Piccioni! The record's got more of an Italian comedy feel than French work of the time – from a disco-inspired vocal theme at the start, to some sweet slinky numbers in the middle, and a few more playful melodies that kind of update an older Italian comedic mode! Piccioni uses a fair bit of then-contemporary instrumental elements – warmer production than before, a mix of keyboards and rhythms, and even a breathy female singer named Emelyne on a few tracks. CD features 19 tracks in all – and notes on the music and film in English and French! CD

Piero PiccioniMoment Of Truth ... LP
Mainstream, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $1.99
A nice little score from the great Piccioni – penned for a mid 60s film about a bullfighter! Given the setting, there's a number of tracks on here that have a slight flamenco tinge – but there's also plenty of other tunes done in the wonderfully seductive early Piccioni jazz style – recorded in such a way that brings out some elements in a very weird-sounding mix that really points the way towards the Piccioni sound at the end of the 60s. Great titles include "Ziryab's Love", "Bossa Nova Marina", "Nothing To Say", and "Improvisation", a weird organ number that sounds like it was lifted from The Tenth Victim! LP, Vinyl record album

Piero PiccioniPuppet On A Chain ... CD
DC Recordings (UK), 1970. Used ... $14.99
A very groovy action-based score from composer Piero Piccioni – one of his few non-Italian soundtracks from the time! The music was recorded in swinging London at the end of the 60s – and it's got a mod sound that's very groovy, with Hammond and horns and guitar and electric bass all grooving together, in a mixture of fast catchy tunes, slower moody ones, and a few of those great oddball themes that always make Piccioni's soundtracks so wonderful! The whole thing's been lovingly remastered, with a great package that has images from the film. Titles include "Drugs Hypnosis", "Puppet On A Chain", "Drug Dealers", "Psychedelic Mood", "LSD Party", "Night Club", "Love Theme", and "Troubles In The Big City". CD

Cinevox (Italy), 1969. New Copy ... About July 27, 2020 (delayed)
Sublime work from Piero Piccioni – a really Morricone-like soundtrack, and one that's filled with hauntingly beautiful melodies! There's a lightly gliding feel to the record that's really wonderful – light lines on organ, topped with wordless vocals from Edda Dell'Orso and I Cantori Moderni, alternating to suit the mood of the film, and really bringing out some of the most lovely qualities in Piccioni's music. The tunes unfold gently, like the petals of a flower in soft summer rains – and there's also an undercurrent of darkness at a few points, but one that hardly gets in the way of the breathy, bossa-styled tunes. Titles include "La Torre", "Da Soli In Vacanza", "Capriccio", "The Redcoat", "I Cavalli", and "Nero Piu Bianco". CD

Beat (Italy), 1966. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest soundtracks of the 60s – presented here in a massive package that brings forth a wealth of never-reissued music! Piero Piccioni really hit his stride for the music to this film that was directed by its star – the effervescent Alberto Sordi – a fantastic send-up on the London scene of the time, set to a range of modly romping tunes! Piccioni handled the main music – often with loads of great piano and organ lines – but there's also some great vocal moments too, sung by Lydia MacDonald, Julie Rogers, and even Sordi – and the record also features a few touches from I Cantori Moderni, and a bit of music from Ennio Morricone too. Titles include the wonderful "Mr Dante Fontana", a nutty groover about the mod fashion scene in London – and it also features the famous tracks "Richmond Bridge" and "You Never Told Me". Titles include a few versions of "Fontana" and "Richmond", plus "Ascot Dream", "Magic Castle", "Tango Walk", "Drag Beat", "This Is Life", "Palace Parade March", "Babylon, I'm Coming", and "His Dream Has Come True". 3CD set features the full original album in both mono and stereo – plus 71 bonus tracks from the film score!

✨✧ Piero PiccioniAdua E Le Compagne ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1960. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautifully jazzy score from the great Piero Piccioni – penned for this obscure Italian film about 4 prostitutes who decide to reform and open a restaurant! Piccioni's soundtrack shares many styles with American jazz soundtracks of the late 50s – including a strong use of spare instrumentation and solos to create especially evocative settings, and also a willingness to expand the orchestrations when needed, in order to underscore the tension of a moment. Players aren't listed, but the work is totally great – and it's our guess that the musicians were among the elite of the Italian jazz scene who'd worked with Piccioni before. The material is making it's full debut here as a soundtrack release too – as only a small amount of titles saw release before on an EP entitled New Sound Jazz – but are presented here with the full 18 tracks from the film, plus a bonus "suite" that runs for 18 minutes – made up of the mono mix from the film!

Camille 3000 (Italy), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest classics from the glory days of the Italian soundtrack scene – a set that perfectly brings together all the funky, jazz, and mod-styled touches of the great Piero Piccioni – on a record that's maybe had more life over the years than the film did on the screen! The mix of instruments here is completely sublime – with some especially wonderful use of Hammond, but with very offbeat sounds – next to flute, warmer woodwinds, and some wicked basslines that hit the hippest sort of funk soundtrack modes. The recording quality is amazing, too – with unusual isolation and shading used on the instruments, to further make the sound magic – and titles include "Funky Lovers", "Pearls", "Slow Flute Beat", "Charms", "Brasil 2000", "Tears In Brasil", "Camille 2000", and "Tears In Rome". One of our all-time favorites – with 28 tracks in all, including some great alternate takes! CD

✨✧ Piero PiccioniMarta – Dopo Di Che Uccide Il Maschio E Lo Divora (180 gram white vinyl pressing) ... LP
Quartet (Spain), 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the most obscure 70s soundtracks from the great Piero Piccioni – and one of the grooviest too – a set that has the maestro playing lots of lead piano and organ lines himself, in a way that recalls the dreaminess of some of his better-known scores from the 60s! The film's an obscure one too – directed in Spain, which is a change from some of Piero's more familiar Italian soundtrack settings – but the style is right in keeping with everything we love in his music. The set basically has two song variations – the first is the funky "Right Or Wrong", done in two versions with vocals by Shawn Robinson, but also a long, lively instrumental part too. The second is "Dopio Di Che Uccide Il Maschio E Lo Divora" – a theme that's taken in ways that move slowly, from darkness to dreamy light – slow-stepping piano or organ amidst some moodier strings.

Four Flies (Italy), 1964. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Three nights of love from Piero Piccioni – scored with a sound that's right in between the jazzier styles he used in the first half of the 60s, and the groovier modes from the second half of the decade! Instrumentation matches that of some of Piero's straighter scores from a few years before – but the rhythms are right up front, often with mod or bossa touches – which make the jazzy solos sound even better overall! There's a bit of organ, too – used in a cool other-worldly way – and titles include "Come On Rome", "Sally's Surf", "In The Early Hours", "Just For Fun", "Mistico Amore", and "Nelle Tue Braccia". Also includes some never-released tunes – and Carlo Rustichello composed two of the album's fourteen tracks. LP, Vinyl record album

Two very groovy tracks from the score to the film Top Sensation – both of them great! "Aldo E Ulla" has snapping drums and this very cool organ – moving between melody and this cool squishy sound across the keyboard – all in a way that reminds us of the great use of the instrument by Piero Piccioni! "Beat Del Panfilo" is fuller and funkier – even harder drums that romp along nicely, while a fuller horn section blasts out majestically with a cool mod groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Studio Uno (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. Very Good+ 2LP ... $19.99
We know you're probably overstuffed with compilations of rare Italian grooves – but believe us, this one's a real standout! Not only does it have the kind of cool breezy material you'd expect from a comp like this, but it's also got a large number of tracks with a harder sound and heavy drums and guitars. Plus, the mix of artists pushes way past the usual gang that's been exported over the past few years – making the set nice and fresh. The cover art's got a bunch of Italian kids having a groovy time, which is what you're bound to do once you hear tracks like "Snap Dragon" by Montori-Chiti, "Carrefour" by Luiz Bacalov, "Happy Year" by Angel Pocho Gatti, "A Bocca Chiusa" by Piero Umiliani, "Ankara" by G&M De Angelis, "O Rugido Do Leao" by Piero Piccioni, and "Chase" by Pasquale Catiglione & Paolo Casa. There's 17 cuts in all, and the whole thing was compiled by Italian DJ Paolo Scotti. From the same folks who did Third Millenium, which was one of our faves from last year! LP, Vinyl record album

Schema (Italy), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $12.99
Sublime bossa groovers from Italy! The first volume of this series was one of our favorite compilations that year it was released – and this second volume is equally as great! Schema groover Gerardo Frisina serves up a hand-picked batch of 16 tunes, mostly classic numbers from the late 60s and early 70s, pulled from the ranks of Italian soundtrack, jazz, and easy listening albums – all with a flair for making the bossa even groovier than it already is! Electric keyboards abound – and the rhythms run from dreamy to driving to slightly funky, always at the right pace for the material, and always making the set dance with delight! Titles include "Incontro All'Aereoporto" by Piero Piccioni, "Allora, Il Treno" by Bruno Nicolai & Edda Dell'Orso, "Avances" by Gerardo Frisina, "Wind" by Red Redford Sound System One, "Bossalonga" by Mustang, "Unreality Landscape" by Angel Pocho Gatti, "Susan Theme" by Daniele Patucchi, "Per Lei" by Stefano Torossi, and "Colpa Tua" by Giancarlo Gazzani.

The feel of the work is great – somewhere between Piero Piccioni and John Barry – with a mixture of strings, tight rhythms, and some excellent occasional work on organ. Even the mellow numbers are nice – with a lilting feel that makes them dance a bit.

Four Flies (Italy), 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Modern jazz from the Italian scene of the 60s – all of it recorded for film and soundtrack use, and almost none of is released before! The music here shows not just the fantastic advances in film scoring in the 60s, but also the overlooked growth of jazz in Italy at the same time too – shifts in sounds and styles that continue to amaze us – even if most of the commercial recordings never got much global circulation at the time! And these sounds are even more unusual and special than those – recorded by names that you'd recognize as both musicians and composers – and mostly presented in small combo modes that resonate strongly with rare Italian jazz records of the period. Titles include "Tempo Di Charlston" by Enrico Simonetti, "I Nostri Mariti" by Armando Trovajoli, "Amarsi Male" by Silvano Spadaccino, "Un'Ora Per Vivere" by Nino Tassone, "Desideri D'Estate" by Gino Peguri, "La Curruzione" by Giovanni Fusco, "La Donna E Una Cosa Meravigliosa" by Perio Piccioni, "La Ragazzola" by Romano Mussolini, and "Una Jena In Cassaforte" by Gianfranco E Gian Piero Reverberi.

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.

Excellent funky and groovy tracks pulled from the catalog of the legendary Cinevox Records – home to some of Italy's greatest soundtrack work of the 60s and 70s! Sure, we've had some of the label's great stuff on single CDs – but this set pulls from a lot of soundtracks that haven't been reissued yet, and also includes a number of tracks that were never issued before at all!

Two fantastic little soundtracks – both from the groovier side of the Riz Ortolani spectrum! Un Caso Di Coscienza has plenty of great organ lines – upbeat on the mod swingers, moodier and dripping with colors on the mellower tracks – always used with these unusual tones and weird phrasing that really keeps things interesting – and maybe even puts the soundtrack in Piero Piccioni territory! Two tracks feature lyrics by Il Supergrupo, the rest are instrumental – and the set features 16 great numbers from the score. Next up is Non Commettere Atti Impuri – done with a wider range of instrumentation, and a lot of tunes that are very upbeat and groovy – moving between organ, piano, keyboards, and guitar to create variations on the jaunty little rhythm of the theme – a cut that almost feels like some old A&M Records instrumental from the 60s, taken into hipper Italian territory on the 14 tracks included here.

✨✧ Carlo RustichelliDelitto Quasi Perfetto ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1966. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wealth of unreleased music from this 60s Italian film – a movie that only gave the world a 45rpm single when first in theaters – which makes this bounteous collection of songs a real lost treasure! The music may well be some of the most striking of the time from Carlo Rustichelli – often awash in odd sounds from familiar instruments – kind of with the jazz through a filter mode that Nino Rota would use for night scenes in Fellini films, or maybe in the more understated modes of early work by Piero Piccioni. Bruno Nicolai conducts, and no doubt helped the music sound even groovier – and the CD features 22 tracks in all, 20 of which are previously unreleased! CD

✨✧ VariousNew Tape ... LP
Sonor (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Rare work from a totally wonderful sound library from the 70s – the tiny New Tape label, started by Italian trumpet legend Cicci Santucci – a player most folks know from his great contributions to Italian jazz in the 60s and 70s! The work here is every bit as great as the albums Santucci cut with his frequent partner Enzo Scoppa – but the style is more soundtrack-oriented, and filled with groovy moments that rival the best film grooves of the time by talents like Armando Trovajoli or Piero Piccioni! The rhythms are strong, instrumentation inventive, and unusual production techniques are just the icing on the cake – on tunes that include "Theme For Kamala" and "Janet" by Romolo Grano, "Reykjavik" by Girosan & Lesiman, "Folksom" and "Raggio Zero" by Santucci & Scoppa, "Macerie" and "Violenza" by Ruscigan, "Macchine Nello Spazio" by Paolo Renosto, "Space Machine" by Cicci Santucci, and "Macumba" by Grano & Renosto.
