Piero Piccioni was born on December 6th, 1921.

Let this month of December 2021 celebrate Piccioni's music!

Please post here whichever Piccioni soundtrack you listen to.

I've already started by playing La volpe dalla coda di velluto.

Quartet Records is the torch-bearer with 3 Piccioni albums! https://quartetrecords.com/shop/composers/piccioni-piero/

... plus Kronos Records offers a December discount.

Piccioni's son, Jason, and the London-based Camille 3000 website still sell Mafioso T-shirts.

Besides their "A Modern Gentleman" compilation album (out on December 3rd) CAM/Sugar will during the next weeks also release more Piccioni titles from the CAM catalogue, but only as digital downloads and not on CD or LP:

“A Modern Gentleman” is the album opening a season of digital releases dedicated to the legacy of Maestro Piccioni."

I suppose that this series will probably include some otherwise still unreleased titles like ADDIO ALEXANDRA, TRE PER UNA RAPINA, TOH È MORTA LA NONNA or even PER QUESTA NOTTE.

As if I knew about the upcoming centenary I played PECCATO MORTALE on Sunday - one of my favorites scores for the autumn mood - and just yesterday I gave a spin to his NEW SOUND JAZZ album as released in Japan (SLCS-7169).

Will surely play more Piccioni's tracks in the coming days.

I've had both of these for a long time and I'm actually surprised to see them still in print!

That was expected, but great to know it is confirmed. It could also include scores previously released on CD but not yet available as digital releases, like they did for the previous Paura compilation.

That said, they haven't finished yet to release those scores behind the Paura compilation, so I hope they finish those as well.

Found the compilation A MODERN GENTLEMAN today. It's great because most tracks featured therein are unknown to me. I noticed a superb performance by Nora Orlandi in Dior Dance from IL MONDO DI NOTTE N. 2. Am now listening to the jazz theme from TRE PER UNA RAPINA. Jazz is logically very much present in the beginning of the CD.

Now playing Tutti dentro. I have mixed feelings about the 2CD Beat Records album. The romantic stuff is absolutely superb as always but the more rhythmic cues are way too repetitive. With 100 minutes it is too hard to listen through in one sitting.

Next in line: L'Italia vista dal cielo (Beat Records release from 2019) which I played over and over when it was released. Can't wait to listen to it again.

Listening to the Quartet expanded versions of Colpo Rovente & Il Dio Sotto La Pelle now. They are vastly superior in sound quality than the previous releases, some tracks just sparkle! Yes, there is an element of repetition in the wealth of cues & alternate tracks across both scores, but there are some tracks, alternate versions, which are quite lovely.


Surprisingly, there are one or two cues that are missing on both releases, expanded as they are;

Il Dio Sotto La Pelle
Missing - Nights to Come (track #2 on the 1999 Easy Tempo release)

There is alternate version of this track which is similar, but backgrounds the organ in favor of a flute. The result is just as sublime as track 2 on the Easy Tempo release.


Colpo Rovente
Missing -Black Flower
Missing -Endless Love


Considering the quality & amount of cues on these expanded releases, it's Piccioni heaven.

L’Italia vista dal cielo was just as lovely as I remembered. You just can’t help but smile through the whole Emilia – Marche section. Primavera has to be in my top 10 all-time favourite Piccioni compositions. The B section of the melody (also known as Felicità) is clearly a cousin of Prince Rodrigo Theme from More than a Miracle but taken to another route. Joie de vivre is a perfect description of that soaring melody. Bravo!

The cues from Sicilia episode on the other hand offer a more intimate and rural sound. Certainly pretty and a definite contrast to the other episode. Another proof of Maestro Piccioni’s versatility. This album comes highly recommended from me.

listening to Totò Diabolicus.

The diabolical tango with Toto was yesterday, today it's L'Attico. I forgot how much I like the swingers.

I want to party and celebrate Maestro PP with a favourite, Lo straniero however it's not congenial.

Looking forward to the new Colpo Rovente!

The wicked Le streghe can 'shake' things up for quite a spell ...

I love LE STREGHE! It was a part of my weekend menu. Commemorated the maestro over the weekend with...

Senza via d'uscita
Il Disprezzo
La Notte Brava
10th Victim
Anna Karenina
L'Attico
Colpo Rovente
Le Streghe
Il Bambino di nome Gesu

Now (Monday morning in the office) playing 'La Commare Secca'.

Today is the day of the centenary. I played Quartet’s new Il dio sotto la pelle and Camille 3000’s Camille 2000. Two beautiful and groovy scores and excellent releases. Easy-listening at its finest.
