Piero Umiliani - Il Corpo [Original Soundtrack]

Label - Easy Tempo
Released - 1974
Style - Electronic, Jazz, Fusion, Ambient, Easy Listening, Library, Soundtrack

(from Dusty Groove)
Sweetly funky and very slinky -- this is one of the best early 70s scores by the great Italian composer Piero Umiliani! The record has lots of bubbling electric piano, rumbling electric basslines, warm acoustic percussion, and moody wordless vocals. At some level, the album sounds a lot like the contemporaneous work by the great Italian Fender Rhodes combo Crossfire -- but it's also filled with a spacey madness that could only come from the pen of Umiliani! One of the best of the recent Easy Tempo reissues -- and very nicely put together, with a consistent sound throughout!
