Icon Series: Chet Baker Italian Movies
For the first time ever in their entirety, this beautifully packaged 3 CD set, lovingly remastered, brings together the complete film recordings by legendary Italian composer Piero Umiliani featuring iconic West Coast trumpeter Chet Baker…
This, the first release on the critically acclaimed Jazz On Film series dedicated to jazz icons also includes one of the rarest Umiliani soundtracks, ‘Intrigo A Los Angeles‘… a marvellous jazz score with the maestro himself at the piano. In 1964, C.A.M released an album with 15 mono cues (38:00 in length) that is now one of the rarest vinyl’s in their catalogue, coveted by fans of the Firenze composer and jazz lovers alike. For this CD ,the original mono master session tapes were used on which was discovered some unreleased material, bringing the total running time up to 43:12 – everything that was recorded for the movie. Audio restoration has improved the sound immensely making for a great listening experience.
Umiliani was the first Italian to bring jazz to the big screen and experimented by using legendary trumpeter Chet Baker… a collaboration and friendship that gave life to a fine collection of recordings and brought out the very best of Baker during his troubled life.
