PIERO UMILIANI/Gato Barbieri-Una Bella Grinta-65 OST-CD

PIERO UMILIANI Una Bella Grinta (1965)

Piero Umiliani with Gato Barbieri

-- Una Bella Grinta ...


NEW CD Limited Edition -


An amazing set of modern jazz -- penned by Italian film composer Piero Umiliani, but also played by a very hip group headed by a young Gato Barbieri! Although Gato's probably best known for his late 60s appearances on the American scene, and his 70s dates for Impulse and Flying Dutchman -- his earlier work in Italy is all pretty darn great, and this set shows the budding modernist to be in very strong company with a lineup that includes Enrico Rava on trumpet and Franco D'Andrea on piano, plus bass and drums.
Side one of the record features full orchestrations by Umiliani -- still plenty jazzy, with some great horn passages and cool use of vibes.
Then side two features Umiliani's music played by the small group with Gato in the lead -- a really great mix of modes that make the soundtrack a real standout, both in the Italian jazz and film scenes of the 60s.
Titles include "Jazz Alla Vivaldi", "Ballata Della Bassa Padana", "Brass Fugato", "Una Bella Grinta", "Lontananza", "Sequenze Autostrata", "Free Theme", and "Hammond Blues"
