Rovi is one of the many names of Piero Umiliani: perhaps he wanted to go anonymous on this one because Due Temi con Variazoni, the Luigi Scattini film that this music originally soundtracked, is basically pornography a la Mondo. Of course, Umiliani can make that work no problem, supplying fifteen tracks of funky jazzy action sure to satisfy any listener. LP reissue as part of the the Schema SCEB Series

TRACKS:

  • SIDE A
  • A1. BLUE THEME
  • The melody is performed by the trumpet and by the tenor sax, with a rhythmical jazz accompaniment. It is not a dramatic theme, but with a certain tension.
  • A2. BLUE PRELUDE
  • The above theme, performed by the tenor-sax and by the trumpet, at a more slow time, in a blues style.
  • A3. BLUE PIANO
  • On a kind of time similar to the above performance, the piano performs the melody together with the bass and the percussion.
  • A4. BLUE TRUMPET
  • Rarefied performance (with a Miles Davis style) of the mute trumpet, without the rhythmical section. After about one and a half minute the rhythm starts, with tenor-sax. in background.
  • A5. BLUE BASS
  • The acoustic bass plays the theme. Percussions with cymbal.
  • A6. BLUE SAX
  • The tenor-sax plays the theme, without accompaniment. (description of desert places: night, fog)
  • A7. BLUE GUITAR
  • Solo of guitar with an aggressive, modern sound. Ten-sion and dramatic feeling.
  • SIDE B
  • B1. EASY THEME
  • During the first minute, the theme is played by trum-pet and tenor-sax, without rhythmical section. Then after, with piano, bass and drums, at a moderate time. Melodic and lyrical phrase.
  • B2. EASY PRELUDE
  • Performance like the above: the tenor sax plays the theme without rhythmical accompaniment. After, the trumpet starts softly. Then the piano starts. Sweet atmosphere, but with a solid rhythmical support.

  • Performance of the organ with an accompaniment in a « Bacharach » style. Description of fashionable, pleasant and relaxing places.
  • B5. EASY GUITAR
  • The guitar plays the theme in a very sweet way, only with armonic accompaniment of hammond organ.
  • B6. EASY INTERLUDE
  • Joyous and lighthearted solo of the organ, with accom-paniment in 6/8 time.
  • B7. EASY RHYTHM
  • Rhythmical tension, suspence, action. Ostinato of the bass, which performs again the thematic cell. Breaks of hammond and moog, with background of strings in tremolo. Excited rhythm on cymbal.
  • B8. EASY BALLAD
  • The melody is played by moog and hammond organ, with an accompaniment in « bailata ›› style. Pleasant, sweet, quite country atmosphere'.
