This once unobtainable Italian library music classic was recently repressed by Sonor Music Editions and represents some of the best work of the great jazz pianist & library composer Oscar Rocchi. He was supported by jingle composer Franco Godim and joined by Tullio de Piscopo. Piscopo later found fame as a pop artist in height of the Italo-disco era. The record is full of dreamy jazz-funk tunes and, like most library music records, explores a wide array of sounds meant to fill in the multitude of commercial needs from TV shows to radio spots. Reed player Giancarlo Barigozzi stands out on the track “Fantastica”, his whirling flute twirls through a beautifully textured composition of heavy bass licks and an intoxicating rhythm by De Piscopo. “Tattile” is another favorite off of the album for it’s light and carefree mood that is as innocent as it is groovy. The entire record is worth a listen but side A is where most of the magic happens.
