Piero PiccioniAnastasia Mio Fratello (2CD version – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1973. New Copy ... $22.99 About May 20, 2022
An early 70s soundtrack from Piero Piccioni for the film Anastasia Mio Fratello – a sweeping score that rolls through pulpy crime genre grooves, more swinging jazzy sounds and classic Italian styles as the action swings from Italy, to Little Italy, NYC! Piccioni was always a composer who could pull off a surprisingly wide range of styles, but he does a heck of just this one terrific film score – somehow holding a fluid groove despite that breadth! Really cool stuff, especially the jazzy numbers. Titles include "Surprise Pastorale", "New York! New York!", "The American Dream", "Gunz Concerto", "Little Italy", "Love In Brooklyn", "Swingin' At Savoy", "Anastasia Mip Fratello" and more. CD

Piero PiccioniColpo Rovente (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1970. New Copy ... $20.99 29.99
One of the first great soundtracks we ever heard from Piero Piccioni – and still one of the best! Colpo Rovente has this really special sort of sound – jazzy, but not really jazz – bassy, but not really funky – and often done with spare, stark sounds – but never in a way that's too atonal or horror-based either! Piccioni brought a really special sort of genius to the record – a way of using each instrument with a very unusual sound or tuning – and isolating each element in just the right way, but with a different style than that used by Morricone at the time. Some tracks get nice and groovy, but lots more hang back in a style that's almost pensive – and titles include "Kintabu", "Blackflower", "Colpo Rovente", "Easy Dreamer", "Chinatown Drugs", and "LSD". This amazing reissue features a stunning 25 bonus tracks added to the original album – even more of a treat than before, and almost 80 minutes of music! CD

Piero PiccioniIl Dio Sotto La Pelle (2CD edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1972. New Copy 2CD ... $29.99 36.99
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". 2CD version features a whopping 49 tracks in all – over two hours of music, and a delight throughout!

Piero PiccioniModern Gentleman – The Refined & Bittersweet Sound Of An Italian Maestro ... LP
Decca, 1960s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... $31.99 35.99
A career-spanning collection of work from one of our favorite Italian soundtrack composers of all time – the fantastic Piero Piccioni, presented here in a wealth of material pulled from the vaults of Cam! Piccioni was one of the most important Italian film music talents of the 60s – right there behind Ennio Morricone – and during the decade, he started in jazz, then quickly moved through a range of really wonderful styles – going for mod elements, funkier bits, bossa nova, and other inflections that kept his work interesting well through the 70s! This set features a number of tracks that aren't easily available on other reissues, mixed with some we'd never seen before – a massive collection of 26 titles, with work from films that include Lucky Luciano, Citta E Campagna, Addio Alexandra, Per Questa Notte, In Viaggio Con Pappa, Io So Che Tu Sai Che Io So, L'Assassino, Una Vita Violenta, Tre Per Una Rapina, I Dolci Inganni, Il Figlio Di Spartacus, Niente Rose Per OSS 177, Toh E Morta La Nonna, and many others. Includes six unreleased tracks – and ten that appear on vinyl for the first time ever! LP, Vinyl record album

Piero PiccioniMoment Of Truth ... LP
Mainstream, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
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 PiccioniVolubile ... LP
Camille 3000 (Italy), 1961. Sealed ... $19.99
Very rare early work from Italian maestro Piero Piccioni – music composed for an Italian TV show at the start of the 60s – served up in a mix of jazz and other groovy styles! The real surprise here is that most of the tunes are vocal numbers, sometimes sung by artists you'll know from later soundtrack themes – an assortment that includes Lydia MacDonald, Jimmy Fontana, Bruno Martino, Alida Chelli, and Little Tony – all getting some really great accompaniment from Piccioni, often in lively styles that feel like the most swinging French pop from the same time! There's more than a few Latin currents in some of the rhythms, and the whole thing is a really amazing lost chapter in the career of one of our favorite soundtrack talents of all time. Titles include "Fumetti", "A Parigi", "Samba Do Brasil", "Do You Cha Cha Cha", "tic", "Dolce Melodia", "Striscioline", "Couplets", "New Ninna", and "Tu Un Riflesso Nella Sera". LP, Vinyl record album

GDM/Beat (Italy), 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

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!

Beat (Italy), 1982. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A sexy little soundtrack from Piero Piccioni – penned for an early 80s film, but done with a slinky style that's pure Euro 70s all the way! Keyboards mix nicely with strings on many tracks – almost in a way that Piccioni seems to borrow from American soul maestros of the previous decade – but there's also some more Italian-styled touches too – including some later bossa inflections that really round out the sound of the record in a wonderful way. And a few especially nice gems have this sense of space that almost makes the music float in the air – recalling the sounds that first made us fall in love with the 60s music of Piccioni. Most solo piano is by Piero, and Toquinho plays guitar on one track – and titles include "Anche Se Sai", "Notte Preziosa", "Occhio Discreto", "Volo Di Mezzanotte", "Bona Nox", and "Ritmo Macumbeiro". This expanded 2CD edition adds in 36 more bonus tracks to the original record – 25 more bonus tracks than the previous release! CD

Digitmovies (Italy), 1966. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

Camille 3000 (Italy), Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Gorgeous early work from Italian soundtrack giant Piero Piccioni – a set that's got just the right blend of sex and space age that's promised by the cover! The style here is like some of Piccioni's earlier soundtrack material – with a sublime mixture of jazz and strings – but there's also some sci-fi touches that come into play too, including bits on organ, flute, electric harpsichord, and what even sounds like a theremin – all creating these cool shimmering tones that really make the music special! We'd never heard this side of Picconi's music, and we're not even sure what the project was done for – but it's a wonderful early chapter in the career of the man who gave us so many Italian cinematic classics. Titles include "Flying Saucer", "Interstellar Romantic Escape", "Siris", "Moon Festival", "Lunar Playboy", and "A Cocktail On Mars". LP, Vinyl record album

Quartet (Spain), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic collection of work from Italian soundtrack genius Piero Piccioni – an artist who started out in jazz, then went on to really transform the sound of cinema later on in the 60s! The collection really lives up to its title – and pulls together some of the grooviest, most upbeat work from some of Piccioni's classic film scores – awash in mod, bossa, and jazzy moments – at a level that reminds us why Piero's one of our favorite soundtrack composers of all time! The choice of cuts is wonderful, and this might well be the first collection to ever present Piccioni in this manner – with 30 tracks pulled from films that include La Decima Vittima, Scacco Alla Regina, Colpo Rovente, Amore Mio Aiutami, Il Disprezzo, Contestazione Generale, 7 Cadaveri Per Scotland Yard, Due Maschi Per Alexa, Camille 2000, and Playgirl 70.

✨✧ Piero PiccioniLa Notte Brava ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1959. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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!

One of the most seductive sound library albums ever recorded by Piero Umiliani – a set that was originally issued under his Zalla pseudonym, but which has all the best jazzy grooves of some of his famous soundtrack material from the end of the 60s! As on those records, Umiliani plays a host of great keyboards, especially organ – over rhythms that are mellow-stepping and slightly funky – often updated with modes borrowed from bossa nova, but brought into a more sensuous Italian soundtrack setting – balanced with nice touches on flute, guitar, and other instrumentation as well. The whole thing's wonderful – as lovely as your favorite soundtrack work by Umiliani, Piero Piccioni, or Armando Trovajoli – with titles that include "Porta D'Oriented", "Tanto Lontano", "Pianure D'Asia", "Oriente Rosso", "Prime Nebbie", "Nel Parco", "Vecchie Strade", and "Laguna Tropicale".

Kid LocoItalian Job ... CD
Temposphere (Italy), 2008. New Copy ... $12.99
The first set we've seen from Kid Loco in awhile – and a nice mix of new music and older sounds from Italian film scores! The album's very nicely placed on the Temposphere arm of Easy Tempo – as it features Loco remixes both of newer music from the former label, and some old soundtracks from the latter – topped off with one or two Loco tracks of his own! The whole thing's somewhat understated – never too gimmicky, beat-heavy, or over the top – and although the music is from a range of different sources, the sound is more than unified enough to make the album feel like a Kid Loco record all the way through. Titles include "Crepuscolo Sul Mare" and "La Seduzione (2007 version)" by Kid Loco, "Sessomatto (Kid Loco sexamental mix)" by Armando Trovajoli, "Magic (new experience mix)" by Piero Piccioni, "Lady Magnolia (Belleville B-Boy mix)" by Piero Umiliani, "Fearing Much (Kid Loco's AM session mix)" by Stefano Torossi, "Per Il Disco Che Piu Amo (Kid Loco viva la Rockola mix)" by I Maniaci Dei Dischi, and "Clapsoy (Cumbia Loco mix)" by Gak Sato.

Ennio MorriconeI Due Evasi Di Sing Sing ... CD
Quartet (Italy), 1964. New Copy ... $20.99 39.99
An early soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – and a more unusual setting than some of his famous later work of the 60s and 70s! The movie is a prison comedy, and is handled by Morricone with style that's heavily in the crime jazz side of the spectrum – maybe more in the mode of Piero Piccioni in the early 60s, and occasionally mixed with some more dramatic tracks, and a few playful comedic moments. The whole thing is a very different slice of the maestro than expected, and still pretty darn great – a key look at his roots before stardom. Titles include the vocal number "Oh Little Birdy" – plus "Gangsters", "Al Night Club", "Bossa Per Gloria", "Incontro Dei Boss", "Le Sedie Elettriche", "Ballando Ballando", and "Il Tempo Che Passa".

The music is a mix of jazz and occasional larger orchestrations – in the best tradition of the late 50s French new wave scores, or some of the jazzier work from the early 60s Italian scene – music that you might hear from the pen of a young Piero Piccioni or Georges Delerue, but given a bossa nova twist too! Many tunes have some samba instrumentation at the core, but more jazz-based instrumentation on the top – and titles include "Assanhadinha", "Asfalto Selvagem", "Suicido", "Engracadinha", "Leticia", "Meu Rio Maravilhoso", and "Um Olhar Assim".

This isn't a "best of" set – and instead, it digs very deeply, and even features some unissued material – brought together in an array of tracks that are a complete delight, even to our ears – which have been trained on Italian soundtrack reissues for decades! Most of the music here is from that key point when Italian scoring was moving from larger orchestras to smaller combos – most right before the groovy/mod years, and taking advantage of the very strong rising tide of top-shelf jazz soloists on the Italian scene – players who are far too many to mention here, but who really help ensure that the work is fantastic! Imagine the best jazz-based soundtracks from Hollywood and France in the late 50s – then imagine work better than that, and that's what you'll get here – on a huge selection of 33 tracks by artists who include Francesco De Masi, Piero Umiliani, Luis Bacalov, Marcelli Gigante, Luiz Bonfa, Piero Piccioni, Ivan Vandor, Aldo Piga, Carlo Savina, Carlo Rustichelli, and others.

Genius! Pure mad genius – and one of the best volumes in this always-great series! After 10 volumes, the folks at Easy Tempo have become incredibly well skilled at picking groovy soundtrack tunes – and this beautiful 20 track package is as much a delight for the ears as it is for the musically-driven mind. The range of grooves is incredible – with elements that include swinging Hammond organ, breezy wordless vocals, spare sax and reeds, cool vibes, and just about anything else the Italian soundtrack composers of the 60s and 70s could get their hands on! Titles include "Swing E Sesso" by Carlo Rustichelli, "On Ce Voit Ce Soir" by Philippe Sarde, "Allora Il Treno" by Bruno Nicolai, "Tough Guys" by Carlo Pes, "Face To Face" by Stelvio Cipriani, "L'Isola Misteriosa" by Piero Piccioni, "Mary's Theme" by Stelvio Cipriani, "Qualcosa Piu Grande Di Noi" by Armando Trovajoli, and "La Pupa Del Gangster" by Piero Umiliani.

✨✧ VariousItalian Lounge Beat Party ... CD
Black Cat (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Groovy groovy soundtrack music from Italy – mostly pulled from sources that we've not had before on reissues, and mixed together nicely with a good variety of styles. The set has fuzzy guitar, electric sitar, bubbly organ, riffing sax, and the occasional swinging vocal passage – and some of the cuts are presented in different and alternate versions. Titles include "Super Colpo Da 7 Miliardi" by Orchestra Willy Brezza, "Richmond Bridge (film version 2)" by Piero Piccioni, "Humanity" by Armando Trovajoli, "La Pecora Nera (shake)" by Luis Bacalov, "Fiorella With The Umbrella (2 versions)" by Armando Trovajoli, "Love War Call" by Piero Piccioni, and "Baronetti" by Alessandro Alessandroni. 18 cuts in all – and nicely put together with some interview work by the folks who do the Il Giaguaro magazine!

✨✧ Armando TrovajoliIl Vuoto ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1964. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Early work from the tremendous Armando Trovajoli, but a set that shows that the maestro was already at the top of his game – coming off of some great experience on the Italian jazz scene of the late 50s, and able to blend that experience with more cinematic modes! The vibe here is different than the soundtrack jazz of Piero Piccioni in the early 60s – more small combo, and more in the mode of a jazz record at times – with very strong interplay between the core group of musicians, and interaction between Trovajoli's piano and the work Carlo Zoffoli on vibraphone, Gino Marinacci on baritone sax and flute, Enzo Grillini on electric guitar, Berto Pisano on double bass. The whole thing's wonderfully groovy – maybe years ahead of its time in terms of color and tone, especially for a soundtrack – and titles include "Evasione", "Etasi", and "Frenesia" – plus a number of variations on the title theme!

✨✧ VariousEsterno Notte Vol 2 – More Jazz-Funk, Late Nite Breaks, Cinematic Prog & Psych From The Italian Untapped Film Music Archives 1968 to 1978 (180 gram pressing – with bonus CD) ... LP
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. LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited to 500 copies – pressed on 180 gram vinyl and with bonus CD!)
