Sounds of the Summer – “The Body”

Written by: 27 June 2016 No Comment

The humidity is periodically kicking in, and in between work, study and bleakness I’m managing to fit in some summer drinking. Obviously reggae is first choice forever for this kind of atmosphere but I’m also partial to some more horizontally inclined jazz and funk.

For your consideration here is Italian composer Piero Umiliani with his work on a (presumably shlocky) film called “Il Corpo”. Beautiful “warm” sounding stuff. Umiliani is most known for writing muppet show staple “Mah na mah na”, and if you like the sounds of “Il Corpo” it was reissued last year, or you can pick up the original for a cool 2 grand on discogs (not kidding).
