Hey - we collectors are finally witnessing Umiliani's INTRIGO A LOS ANGELES on CD courtesy Beat Records!

Here's the image of the vinyl C.A.M. LP cover ...



... and here's the new album release:





The year 2013 is remarkably surprising! As if Piccioni's IL DEMONIO wasn't enough, here's a rare Umiliani LP re-issue with an extra 5 minutes added!

Now Beat or Digitmovies or any other label should make my 2013 complete and release HONG KONG UN ADDIO by Gino Marinuzzi Jr. smile

Track 10, NEL LABIRINTO and track 17, AGGUATO are of most interest to me on INTRIGO A LOS ANGELES. I'm wondering how much more of this dramatic underscore in provided on the new BEAT release?

This is the cover of the original Italian Omicron lp, and no telling yet if this upcoming release contains anything more than the previous Right Tempo CD - which itself contained more tracks than this Omicron lp. Beat also states:

"More Umiliani's in the world! Just got 24 original master tapes featuring great music of the late Maestro!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Great news!

I hope they get to release some of those 24 masters.

Has anybody here heard the new release INTRIGO A LOS ANGELES yet? Sounds like something I'd like.

hi, ajhfsm.

I read somewhere on these FSM threads that unreleased Carlo Savina master tapes number between 80 and 90!

While I hope for more Umiliani, there appears to be much more music by C. Savina which survives (according to Stefan Schlegel).

As of yet, I haven't been able to afford the 3 (or is it 4?) Umiliani titles which have been released during 2013. I'm hoping that before year's end I'll acquire INTRIGO A LOS ANGELES, IL MARCHIO DI KRIMINAL & UNA BELLA GRINTA (I got VENDETTA DI LADY MORGAN in June).

There's also Jerry Land cacciatore di spie(1966), I listened to this yesterday and I like it, and not forgetting the upcoming Agente X1-7 Operazione Oceano(1966).

Hello to my fellow Italian soundtrack enthusiasts!
Hope you are well and enjoying this amazing time for any composers named Piero!
smile
A flood of Umiliani and Piccioni has had me in Italian music heaven.
I'm especially enjoying Intrigo a Los Angeles! (oh, and although I may seem greedy, I hope the future will bring a little Smog to go with my LA!)

Anyway, hope you don't mind reading a few of my thoughts on Intrigo a Los Angeles:

Ii think it's truly one of Umiliani's best mix of straight jazz and mysterious tension
The first two tracks present a simple easy listening style with pleasant flute and a slight Latin beat. By the third track, we are moved with some driving straight-ahead jazz! The following jazz tracks are so sophisticated, dripping with style as they each showcase Umiliani's outstanding jazz sensibilities. It plays like something you might hear in a premier jazz club. One track breaks the jazzy feel, though. (spogliarello da circo knocks this listener out of the mood).

By the middle of the disc, we explore a more mysterious mood that is clearly written to underscore the action of the film. Although there are jazz elements in these tracks, they are overshadowed by more experimental instrumentation with organ and a great use of electronics. The music can be tense at times, and even presents some atonal moments that offer disturbing atmospheres. The score finally transitions to horror sounds at the end, but eventually closes with a two bonus tracks of the jazzy underscore.

The sound on the disc is very good, and the presentation is, as usual for BEAT, excellent.
Limited to 500, so it might be a good idea to put this on your "want list" soon!
Enjoy!

Thanks people. Regarding Intrigo, I see Fabio Babini provides a biography on Chet Baker and Claudio Fuiano writes a short synopsis/music commentary. I like this blend of jazz style/dramatic underscore. Samples will likely be available for X1-7 soon. I want all these Pieros.

Hi ajhfsm,
Three other relatively recent releases by Piero Umiliani that I can highly recommend are:

OPERAZIONE POKER/Beat Records
LE ISOLE DELL'AMORE/Quartet Records
AFRICA TO-DAY/Kronos Records

and the older release(2001) Requiem Per Un Agente Segreto/GDM CLUB if you can find it!

Great review Daddy Lime that sounds exactly like the sort of thing I'm going to love my copy of Intrigo a Los Angeles has not turned up yet.

Would like to know if the expanded release of UNA BELLA GRINTA is worth picking up I loved the previous release and it will be interesting to see if the re release of Sweden Heaven and Hell adds anything to what was already a perfect listen on the Easy Tempo disc.

TRA SCIENZA E FANTASCIENZA, that one sounds ... bizarre. 1976, Maestro Umiliani was out there with synthesizer creations.

Hey there, way out west, thanks!
I was wondering the same thing about the new release of Una Bella Grinta.
I have the Cinedelic edition already, so I'm prioritizing the new release to the bottom of my list.

Same for the upcoming edition of SVENZIA.... I have the Easy Tempo edition, and agree it's a great listen!
Although I believe that's two cuts shy of the more complete Japanese edition, on Volcano records, I think.
Not sure if BEAT will add more to the new disc. This too will be at the bottom of my wish list, a long with a few DeMasi titles I've been looking at.

Way too much to buy these days, not only from the Italian labels, but a steady stream of Goldsmith, Bernstein, and all the rest!
And man oh man...those damned credit card bills...but hey...I need my steady fix of soundtrack goodness!

Out there, indeed. I wasn't at all prepared for what came out of the speakers the first time I played this CD, and I was surprised to say the least...in a good way! Fans of Wendy Carlos, Tangerine Dream, Kraftwerk, etc. should really check it out. Groovy stuff.

Samples here for anyone who's interested: http://www.screenarchives.com/title_detail.cfm/ID/25052/TRA-SCIENZA-E-FANTASCIENZA/

I like his library records Continente Nero (OMICRON) and Suspense (Liuto). I just read parts of Africa-t-day is from Continente Nero?

I used to listen to a cassette I taped from a VHS of Babayaga. Awesome music. Someone pointed me to the library that has the theme, but for all I know there's nothing else on record.

Know the feeling Daddy Lime I have been skipping out more and more of those expanded releases I don't mind to much because there has been so many previously unreleased scores coming out.

Still it is nice to know what fans have thought about those expanded releases a number of them have been very good indeed I was amazed at how much Piccioni's TUTTO A POSTO E NIENTE IN ORDINE improved as a listening experience my ratings for that score went way up.

Sometimes it is hard for me to make up my mind how I feel about certain scores many will be in the neutral zone Umiliani's IL MARCHIO DI KRIMINAL is currently in that slot and OPERAZIONE POKER failed to impress so far need to give it another spin.

Have really enjoyed TRA SCIENZA E FANTASCIENZA part of Beat's DDJ series some fantastic scores in this series this year especially LIBIDINE and CICCIOLINA AMORE MIO (perfect after a few track omissions)
