EXCLUSIVE and LIMITED EDITION Jazzman t-shirt!

Piero Umiliani scored over 60 filmsin his native Italy between 1958 and 1981. And it's no secret that Italian films, even as derivative and as unfamiliar as they are to most Americans, are a treasure trove of excellent artistry. The recent now-sound craze is finally affording Italian film composers like Umiliani their due.

This 1971 album is an instrumental program, similar to the kind Henry Mancini used to release between films. But this one is tougher, filled with clever electric themes, gritty car-chase funk and superb playing by many of Italy's best jazz artists (including the vastly under-appreciated pianist Franco D'Andrea). American cop shows like Streets of San Francisco and Starsky and Hutch weren't even playing this kind of music until the mid 70s. But here Umiliani, who has clearly studied his Mancini and Schifrin, stakes his claim, with ultra cool pop art styling to match!
