Tonight in the Explorers Room: Piero Umiliani – Film Jazz, Synthi Times, Exotic Themes (part one)


Tonight in the Explorers Room, we'll hear the first in a two-part series looking at maestro Piero Umiliani's extensive body of work.  In part 1, we'll hear some of his more jazz-based recordings for film, a bit of soft exoticism and Orientalism, a few one-off singles, and a slew of synthi and atmospheric library themes. (Next week, more synthi stuff, as well as heavy grooves and erotic/psychedelic sounds.  For more of a focus on Umiliani's exotica, check out one of my very first shows here.)
