Piero Umiliani - To-day's Sound 2xLP
Gatefold edition with poster! Originally released as a double album and conceived as a collection of episodes destined to various tv sonorizations, To-day's Sound has quickly become one of the most popular works by Piero Umiliani and it certainly is one of the best ones composed in his career. Umiliani, here on the job with Moog, Hammond and keyboards, is accompanied by a good group of excellent and talented jazz players, like Franco D'Andrea and Giovanni Tommaso (both in the Perigeo group), trumpet player Oscar Valdambrini, guitar player Silvano Chimenti from I Grès group, percussionist Ciro Cicco and many others. With the original intent to offer radically different styles and atmospheres, in order to promote the use of the tracks in movies and tv series – in fact, the the psycho-funk "Open Space" was used for the opening credits of the movie "Baba Yaga" – To-day's Sound is the perfect example of Umiliani's incredible and varied talent, capable of mastering diverse genres and sounds.
