Gatefold edition with poster!Only 1 per customer.Originally released as a double album and conceived as a collectionof episodes destined to various tv sonorizations, “To-day’s sound” hasquickly become one of the most popular works by Piero Umiliani and itcertainly is one of the best ones composed in his career. Umiliani,here on the job with Moog, Hammond and keyboards, is accompaniedby a good group of excellent and talented jazz players, like FrancoD’Andrea and Giovanni Tommaso (both in the Perigeo group),trumpet player Oscar Valdambrini, guitar player Silvano Chimentifrom I Grès group, percussionist Ciro Cicco and many others.With the original intent to offer radically different styles andatmospheres, in order to promote the use of the tracks in movies andtv series – in fact, the the psycho-funk “Open space” was used forthe opening credits of the movie “Baba Yaga” – “To-day’s sound” isthe perfect example of Umiliani’s incredible and varied talent, capableof mastering diverse genres and sounds without losing his personaltouch. As stated on the cover: “Rock, rhythm and blues, beat,underground, country, pop”, we can also add electronic music andfunk, in order to complete a sound palette that only very few othercomposers had. It is hard to pick the best track in a record (a doublealbum to be specific ) so rich of gems, from the title track to “Careterapanamericana” (with “virtuoso” Moog improvisations ), to “Bus stop”and “Music on the road” , to end with the wonderful soul of “Greenvalley”: it is better to enjoy Umiliani at his best!
