Easy Tempo compilation series


A quick review on the Easy Tempo vols 1-10 series in general, from scorebaby:

*ESSENTIAL*
The Easy Tempo series constitutes the most exhaustive collection of Italian cinematic jazz funk available. To try and rate each volume seperately becomes a highly subjective exercise, since each volume tends to feature the same music makers — like Piero Umiliani, Armando Trovajoli, Piero Piccioni, Berto Pisano, et al. Although a couple of volumes attempt to offer a sub-category approach — like Volume 2's focus on psychadelic sounds ("psycho beat") and Volume 3's focus on Latin rhythms — most of the discs are very consistant in sound style. Therefore, it's best to take the series as a whole, because each disc has its standout tracks, but never a genuine stinker. A lot of credit goes to the people at Easy Tempo — part of the jazz label Right Tempo — for having great ears. I can't emphasize enough how essential these discs are to groovy soundtrack fans. Take the plunge.
