A previous reviewer said this recording, "will make your girlfriend put on those 6 inch stilletoes and walk her
leopard down the street with a gold leash." Exactly! I couldn't agree more with his description of this. It's a
fabulous jazz soundtrack from the legendary Italian composer Piero Piccioni that he scored for the 1963 film
"Un Tentativo Sentimentale" ("A Sentimental Attempt"). Piccioni (1921-2004) started his career as a lawyer,
but turned his life-long love of music into a full-time profession in the 1950's, after securing movie-rights for
Italian distributors and scoring a documentary for Michelangelo Antonioni - he would go on to score over 300
film soundtracks in his long, outstanding career. I've collected a fair number of these and recently discovered
"Un Tentativo" (quite by accident). I heard a few clips on you-tube that blew me away, and got the 1992 cd
on the Italian import Cam label after some searching. This is solid gold and features 11 tracks of sublime, tight,
and haunting jazz ensemble writing by Piccioni that are not only brilliant for a soundtrack, but also PERFECTLY
evoke the sound (and mood) of early 60's Italian cinema and culture. The marvelous trumpet solo's in the score
are by Nunzio Rotondo, and he sounds dead-on like Chet Baker (who was also playing in Italy at that time when
he wasn't in jail for drug use; check out his classic album "The Italian Sessions", also known as "Chet is Back",
recorded 1962 in Rome, including 4 Italian vocal singles with famed film composer Ennio Morricone on the "Chet
is Back" release on Bluebird.) Piccioni's writing for the jazz ensemble includes, as well, MAGNIFICENT voicings &
solo's for piano, sax, flute, vibes, bass, and organ.
