Piero Umiliani - Questo Sporco Mondo Meraviglioso

Piero Umiliani - Questo Sporco Mondo Meraviglioso
Label - Easy Tempo
Released - 1971
Style - Funk, Jazz, Soundtrack, Library, OST

(from Dusty Groove)
A fab little soundtrack from one of our favorite Italian composers -- a lost gem originally issued in 1971, with a very groovy sound! The score has Piero Umiliani picking up a bit more funk than usual -- working with electric bass and keyboards to come up with some totally great tracks that kind of pick up a sexy Euro funk groove from the Serge Gainsbourg generation, and give it some excellent soundtracky touches in terms of tone, color, and melody. The tracks are all pretty darn great -- bouncy, sunny, and with funk at just the right moments -- and a few nice numbers even have a bit of scatting vocals, an element that makes them all the more pleasing to our ears! Titles include "Mah Na Cowboy", "Holiday Inn", "Love In", "Il Mondo Dell Infanzia", "Luna Di Miele", "Pepito", and "La Nuova Frontiera".
