VA - Stroboscopica Vol. 01 [1998] + Stroboscopica Vol. 02 [1999]+ Stroboscopica Vol. 03 [2001]



VA - Stroboscopica Vol. 01 [1998] + Stroboscopica Vol. 02 [1999]+ Stroboscopica Vol. 03 [2001]

This Stroboscopia series features the 1970's Italian soundtrack, library music scene with insanely wonderful grooves from lost Italian sources. The general mood is rare groove with some cinematic jazz thrown in, several cuts also have a crime funk vibe which adds further interest.  Jazz orchestration and Latin beats figured prominently into '70s Italian cinema scores. Here are packaged together long-lost selections of this spicy film funk. We get material ranging from soft Latin jazz to a blaxploitation romaine. Instantly entertaining and classically dated, this material is the bridge for journeying from beat jazz to spy jazz. Stroboscopia is a must-have if you dig 60's Hammond organ groovers, 70's keyboard funk tracks, and any sort of tune that has a slightly offbeat edge. It's impossible to pick highlights out of such a strong selections, anyone who has even a passing interest in Italian soundtracks, library music or rare groove should find themselves more than satisfied. I can't recommend these compilations more highly, they are awesome. (Amazon)
