Piero PiccioniCamille 2000 ... CD
Camille 3000 (Italy), 1970. New Copy ... $36.99
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 PiccioniColpo Rovente ... CD
Easy Tempo (Italy), 1970. Used ... $34.99
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".

Piero PiccioniIl Diavolo ... LP
WHP (Italy), 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
Rare early work from Piero Piccioni – music scored for a 60s film with Alberto Sordi in the lead – maybe a bit more conventional than some of Piccioni's later work, but still wonderfully groovy overall! There's lots of jazz in the mix, and there's a number of tunes that have a great ear for unusual sounds and phrasing – including some very weird organ at some points, and what might actually be prepared piano on the main theme too – occasionally mixed with straighter strings, but never in a way that leans too much into drama or suspense! If you know some of Piccioni's jazzier work from the time, you'll get the vibe of this one – and titles include "Scorpio In Libra", "Organ Grinders", "Firestar Express", "Ay De Mi", "Racconti D'Amore", "Minor Eva", and "Piano Grinders Mamboso".

Piero PiccioniIl Terrorista ... LP
Doxy (Russia), 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99 24.99
A taut score from Piero Piccioni – penned for an early 60s black and white thriller, with a sound that's often a lot more serious than some of his other work of the time! There's a few whimsical themes at the start, but these drop off quickly – leaving some very spare, atmospheric numbers with a really tense, spooky sound – one that often comes from solo piano or organ work from Piccioni, the latter of which has a really deep-down, rumbling quality. Horns appear on some of the lighter moments – which have almost Nino Rota-like melodies that are a bit playful – but the score definitely leans towards the darker side of the spectrum at most moments. Titles include "Fox Foxy", "Waltz For You", "Il Terrorista", and "Eco Di Un Tempo". LP, Vinyl record album

Piero PiccioniLa Notte Brava ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1959. New Copy ... $19.99 28.99
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 ... $19.99 28.99
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

Piero PiccioniVolubile (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Camille 3000 (Italy), 1961. New Copy ... $24.99
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".

✨✧ Piero PiccioniBello, Onesto, Emigrato Australia Sposerebbe Compaesana Illibata (with bonus tracks) ... CD
GDM/Beat (Italy), 1971. New Copy ... Temporarily 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

✨✧ Piero PiccioniFumo Di Londra ... CD
Black Cat (Italy), 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 – with loads of excellent material, and 27 cuts in all! CD

✨✧ Piero PiccioniIo So Che Tu Sai Che Io So (2CD edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1982. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily 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

CAM/WHP (Italy), 1963. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A rare early soundtrack from Italian maestro Piero Piccioni – and much more of a jazz session than some of his later work! The style is clearly taking off from the jazz scores of the French new wave – and Piccioni's orchestrations are wonderful, with a good balance between the overall mood and standout solos on instruments that include vibes, organ, and trumpet – the last of which is played in a number of settings by Nunzio Rotondo! The whole thing is wonderful – much more cool than sentimental – and titles include "Blue Jeans Blues", "Mamboso", "Blue Low Blues", "Marilou", "Vano Interludio", and "Striscioline".

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), 1984. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A mid-80s comedy, but one that has some surprisingly strong moments – some jazzier numbers and funkier moments that have instrumentation that's much more 70s overall! A few tunes carry through that love of a disco theme that arose on the Italian scene a few years before – but others mix richer orchestral scoring with some standout groovers – music that together makes for music that's a lot more put-together than you'd guess for a late Alberto Sordi film! Gloria Paul sings on the cut "By & By" – and other titles include "New Holidays", "No Tricks", "Unusual Weekend", "Double Dream", "Moments I Spend With You", "Blue Music", and "Hard Connections". Plus, 2CD edition features a full disc of bonus tracks – 26 more titles in all! CD

✨✧ Piero PiccioniLa Decima Vittima (Tenth Victim) - Original Soundtrack ... CD
Right Tempo (Italy), 1965/1998. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of our favorite soundtracks of all-time, lovingly repackaged by Easy Tempo, with a bundle of extra tracks that weren't on the original LP! Piero Piccioni's score for this one is an insane mix of weird grooves, crime jazz, sound effects, and some of the coolest organ riffs you'll ever hear! (At times, we'd swear we were listening to Sun Ra on the keys!) All this fantastic music is the backdrop for an insane film starring Ursula Andress and Marcello Mastroianni that's about a crazy assassin game that's played in the future. If that sounds a bit wild, it is, and the music is in perfect step with the nutty plot. If you must sample one soundtrack from our section, make it this one, and you'll be hooked on it for life! Great stuff, and with a special English version of the theme song, sung by the great Mina, who also does a lot of other cool jazzy singing on the record. CD

MinaQueen Of Italian Pop – Classic Ri-Fi Recordings 1963 to 1967 ... CD
Ri Fi/Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $14.99 19.99
Fantastic work from one of the grooviest singers of the 60s – the amazing Mina, a vocalist who hardly made waves on this side of the Atlantic, but who served up a wealth of wonderful material from the Italian scene at the time! You might know Mina from a few key soundtrack contributions she made over the years – her vocal range is stunning – and arrangements here are often by important forces from the Italian cinema scene – like Ennio Morricone, Piero Piccioni, Augusto Martelli, and Bruno Canforna – all of whom give Mina these full, rich backings that really match the vivid quality of her voice! But there's also groovy elements at the core, too – styles that are similar to French or British female pop of the period – especially with some of the soul currents of the latter – but shaped differently, given both Mina's style, and the Italian language and the way it comes across in song. The package is long overdue – maybe the first-ever done for the international market on Mina's music – and as with all work on Ace, the presentation is great, with very detailed notes that will teach you plenty while you enjoy the songs – a lineup that includes "Se Telefonando", "E L'Umo Per Me", "Io Sono Quel Che Sono", "No", "Citta Vuota", "Tu Farai", "Beve Amore", "Addio", "Insensatez", "Se C'E Una Cosa Che Mi Fa Impazzire", "TA Ra Ta Ta", and "La Banda".

Ennio MorriconeI Due Evasi Di Sing Sing ... CD
Quartet (Italy), 1964. New Copy ... $29.99 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".

Joao NegraoAsfalto Selvagem ... LP
Paneg/Mad About Records (Portugal), 1964. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
A rare little bossa jazz album from the early 60s Brazilian scene – one that's also a soundtrack too, which gives it a different feel than most other records of its type! 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".

Armando TrovajoliIl Vuoto ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1964. New Copy ... $34.99 39.99
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!

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".

Schema (Italy), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.

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.

An amazing treasure for fans of Italian soundtrack music – the fresh discovery of rare material from the vaults of Cinevox Records – one of the most important Italian soundtrack labels of the 60s and 70s! All of the music here is previously unreleased – and runs from full songs to snippets, all laid out in this really beautiful way – so that the package is not only presenting some great grooves from Cinevox, but also tracing a history of Italian cinematic styles – moving back and forth from the 60s through the 70s, with a superb presentation that really has the music sounding tremendous in this setting! These aren't clunky discards, but really wonderful tunes – unused extra material from soundtrack giants who include Piero Umiliani, Armando Trovajoli, Riz Ortolani, Giorgio Gaslini, Piero Piccioni, Gianni Ferrio, Franco Bixio, Enrico Simonetti, and many others – laid out here in a limited package, with 161 titles in all.
