This rather mysterious Jazz recording, which dates back to 1971, was quickly put together in a studio session sandwiched between RAI orchestra rehearsals, film soundtrack recordings and various other projects that make up this incredible musical library, all recorded in that period by our best musicians. The unique particulars of this record are that the musicians are not named, except for a mythical “Plakoti” but also the rights and the tapes seemed tohave strangely disappeared. After a period of accurate research, thanks to Maurizio Majorana (bass player for the Marc 4) we have been able to find the original recordings and also the musicians that played on it. Even though this recording was accredited to the Marc 4, by semi-official sources of the time, strangely enough only two of them are effectively present on this record Antonello Vannucchi on the Hammond Organ, Vibraphone and Piano and Roberto Podio on the Drums. The other two musicians are Giovanni Tommaso playing his mythical “Pedrazzini” (ndr) double bass who already played together with Vannucchi as part of the famous “Lucca Quartet” and then as the bass player of the group “Perigeo” and Enzo Grillini, part of the Rai orchestra and a favorite guitar player of both Armando Trovajoli and Gianni Ferrio who, at the time, was considered one of the best Italian Jazz guitar player and who rarely recorded music outside of the RAI orchestra. The style of this record, thanks to this very particular group of musicians, contrary to many other Library recordings, is very jazzy and the very special sound reminds us of the Jazz organ of the Verve/Blue Note labels made in the Sixties. The Seven Men Label, another characteristic of this new edition, born from a partnership of 7 mysterious producers and musicians in order to produce background music, in fact, only produced four recordings and they are : “1” that you are already listening to, 2, AKA “Il Cinghialetto” directed by Gianni Ferrio and played by the very best popular and classical musicians of the day, as the soundtrack of a theatre piece written by Grazia Deledda and to conclude there are two recordings made in the 1970’s written by Bruno Canfora: “Musiche di scena n°1” and “Musiche di scena n°2”. To have been able to bring this recording out again, knowing about its ups and downs and how it was made, is even more important now, as we have been able to add yet another gem to the numerous reeditions of the “Italian Library Music“ over these past years.

Original Italian library music from the vaults of Nelson Records, recorded between
1970 and 1976. All tracks performed by I Marc 4, one of the key acts in the birth
and development of the New Italian Library Sound, formed by Maurizio Majorana
on bass, Antonello Vannucchi on Hammond organ and piano, Roberto Podio on
drums and guitarist Carlo Pes. In this album we dig into the record library of
Nelson Records, founded in 1970 by the musicians Maurizio Majorana, Antonello
Vannucchi and Roberto Podio after establishing the recording studio
Telecinesound, right where the New Italian Library Sound was created. This is the
sound that many collectors, musicians, record producers and film directors still
like, look for, rediscover and re-use for their work. The New Italian Library Sound
has the signature of I MARC 4, a quartet that recorded 20 albums from 1970 to
1980 but who also collaborated with the great masters of Italian soundtracks of
the 60s and 70s, especially with Armando Trovajoli, bringing their own style into
this new sound, mixing jazz, pop, rock and psychedelic music.
