TO-DAY'S SOUND (1973)

Originally released as a double album and conceived as a collection

of episodes destined to various tv sonorizations, To-day's sound has

quickly become one of the most popular works by Piero Umiliani and it

certainly is one of the best ones composed in his career. Umiliani,

here on the job with Moog, Hammond and keyboards, is accompanied

by a good group of excellent and talented jazz players, like Franco

D'Andrea and Giovanni Tommaso (both in the Perigeo group),

trumpet player Oscar Valdambrini, guitar player Silvano Chimenti

from I Grès group, percussionist Ciro Cicco and many others.

With the original intent to offer radically different styles and

atmospheres, in order to promote the use of the tracks in movies and

tv series – in fact, the the psycho-funk Open space was used for

the opening credits of the movie Baba Yaga – To-day's sound is

the perfect example of Umiliani's incredible and varied talent, capable

of mastering diverse genres and sounds without losing his personal

touch. As stated on the cover: Rock, rhythm and blues, beat,

underground, country, pop, we can also add electronic music and

funk, in order to complete a sound palette that only very few other

composers had. It is hard to pick the best track in a record (a double

album to be specific ) so rich of gems, from the title track to Caretera

panamericana (with virtuoso Moog improvisations ), to Bus stop

and Music on the road , to end with the wonderful soul of Green

valley: it is better to enjoy Umiliani at his best!
