Guido And Maurizio De Angelis - La Polizia Incrimina, La Legge Assolve 1973 (Beat Records Company)



Label : Beat Records Company

Value :

One of the first great Italian cop movies of the 70s – and a superbly-scored film with a really wonderful soundtrack! The DeAngelis brothers are clearly drawing heavily from an American tradition initiated by Lalo Schfrin – using heavy guitar, funky undercurrents, and even some soulfully righteous touches to really set this one apart from other Italian films of the time. Yet the approach here is also a bit more different, touches with some of the darker modes and more redemptive themes of Italian westerns – a sense of suspension and drama that's incredibly powerful, and heard to best effect on the solo instrumental passages – which include guitar by Maurizio and flute by Guido.

Andrew Wartts and The Gospel Storytellers - There Is A God Somewhere1982 (Champ Records)


Label : Champ Records

Value :

One of those rare gospel albums that sounds nothing like conventional gospel – and which instead is a wonderful criss-crossing of soul, funk, and spirit – all guided by an artist who's as righteous as his message! The set was recorded in Nashville, and has a nicely laidback approach – with lead vocals from Andre Wartts, in a raspy style that almost owes a bit to Curtis Mayfield – especially in the way that Curtis could easily shift between the secular and spiritual, and always make the whole thing sound incredibly personal. Yet there's also some currents of jazz, some moments of funk, and a really collaborative approach to the album – as the Gospel Storytellers are clearly a very close-knit, intimate group – one who really come alive when some of the backup vocalists join Andre's lead.By Dusty

Airto Moreira - Virgin Land 1974 (Salvation)


Label : Salvation

Value :

A great little fusion set from Airto – recorded in a mode that's a great bridge between his acoustic roots and some of his smoother albums in years to come! The sound has some key electric elements here – bits of bass, guitar, and keyboards – but there's still a strongly acoustic sound overall too, one that leaves plenty of room for Airto's unique jams on percussion, plus a bit of vocals from the lovely Flora Purim. Airto's got some top-shelf talents helping him out here – Billy Cobham on production, and Stanley Clarke and Milcho Leviev on arrangements – and there's a nice sense of darkness going on that even separates the album from some of Airto's other mid 70s sides on CTI.By Dusty
