Das englische Label Moochin About veröffentlicht mit dieser 3 CD Box zum ersten Mal die Italienischen Soundtracks, die der legendäre Piero Umiliani komponierte und an denen auch Trompeter Ikone Chet Baker beteiligt war. Diese Zusammenstellung enthält auch den ultra-raren 60 Crime Movie Soundtrack von Intrigo A Los Angeles (Romano Ferrara). Ein wundervolles Stück Crime Style Jazz mit Umiliani himself am Klavier. Obwohl Chet Baker nicht auf jedem Stück der Soundtracks von Intrigo a Los Angeles und Smog zu hören ist, entschied sich Moochin About der Vollständigkeit halber dafür, die Soundtracks in ganzer Länge zu präsentieren. Dies ist bereits die vierte Veröffentlichung auf Moochin About. Vorgänger waren Jazz On Film, Film Noir (MOOCHIN01), Beat Square and Cool (MOOCHIN02) und die 6CD Collection The New Wave (MOOCHIN04).
This set marks the first time these soundtracks have been released in their entirety, and the first time that the music for Intrigo a Los Angeles has been on CD.This is a fascinating set covering a much-neglected niche of Baker s career. Like the previous Moochin About sets, the sound quality is simply fantastic, though some tracks are inevitably a bit boxier-sounding than others.The fold-open but sturdy cardboard packaging is also quite ingenious, and will look good on your shelf. Good stuff! --Lynn René Bayley - Fanfare Magazine In the context of movie soundtrack music these albums are more cooked than raw jazz reveries styled for track-by-track listening. Not all of them have Chet upfront but they all partake of his edgy cool and that suppressed eroticism which floats into much of his stuff. The films mean nothing to me but on this showing I d venture a viewing of some. They did film-music differently there and then, and you need a shot of this Italianate (rococo?) sophistication to put all the current bombast into perspective. --Roger Hill ~ PMS --Paddy Kehoe RTE Ireland
a 3CD set of rare musical joy from a period where Baker collaborated with one of the true gods of Italian cinema - Piero Umiliani **** --Johnny Trunk ~ RECORD COLLECTOR
Jazz and cinema. A blend beautifully documented by this confanetto, intended to attract the interest not only of Chet Baker fan. There is a lot of work behind these six soundtracks created between 1958 and 1962 thanks to the wonderful score by Piero Umiliani, including orchestral pages strictly jazz facility and refined winks to pop. Besides the soloist melancholic and dreamy Baker, it emerges superbly colorful caleodoscopio of Italian jazz of the sixties. The orchestra from time to time gathered shines thanks to musicians of the caliber of Marcello Woods, Livio Cerveglieri, Nini Rosso and Baldo Masters, to name a few. It is the synthesis of a national jazz scene in full artistic growth, now strong and vital cultural identity. Baker, then at the height of success, unfolds class and suppleness of interpretation from the sound of "The Usual column Unknowns" contained on the first CD. There is also room for the refined chiaroscuro watermarks Helen Merrill, the female vocal equivalent of Baker. But it Umiliani the real heart of these sound pages, with its rich panache arrangements and surprising tonal nuances. It is not easy to run into soundtracks so pregnant with imagination and virtuosity as those at issue... --ALL ABOUT JAZZ - Album of the week *****

Chet Baker/Film Noir fans will want to hear this. But be aware that he doesn't appear at length on every track on every soundtrack (ST). Information on these STs is unreliable and/or unknown. A number of these tracks were re-edited and reused at different times making definitive information impossible to catalog. But when Baker does play his tone is simply beautiful. Disc 1 begins with Baker's forlorn, lonely sounding horn on 1958's "I Soliti Ignoti" ("Big Deal On Madonna Street"), which is at times reminiscent of Miles Davis on "Lift To The scaffold". The band is made up of Baker and (for the most part) unknown Italian musicians. Peiro Umiliani (the real "star" here) arranged this (as all the others) and his feel for the storyline of each movie can easily be heard. This ST is one of the highlights of this set. The sound has been remastered on this and all the other STs here, and is up to previous Moochin' About standards on the very fine previous collections.
"Audace Colpo Dei Soliti Ignoti" ("Fiasco In Milan"), (1959), is another good ST, with Baker, and a small group of Italian musicians (including Umiliani on piano) and shows how well Baker and Umiliani collaborated on this ST. This is another good example of Baker's sensitivity working with Umiliani on STs. The feel of the music takes several turns through varying emotions, and is a good example of Italian Film Noir efforts from this period.
"Urlatori Alla Sbarra" (1960), includes Baker (with a vocal part), and small group of musicians, and Umiliani on piano as well as arranger and conductor. This is a more heavily orchestrated ST and shows Umiliani's skills both in the studio and as a composer of emotion-grabbing music.
Disc 2 is taken up with "Intrigo A Los Angeles" (1964), which is a rarity (even more than some of the others), and features Baker and a large orchestra. This is where Baker fans may wonder who's the "star", it's Umiliani, not necessarily Baker. If you're not a "soundtrack person" wanting to hear more of Baker's horn, this may not be it. But it's another fine example of Umiliani's skills working on Film Noir scores. The music is atmospheric without pandering to the typical scores heard in some lesser films of this type. This too is another highlight of this collection.
Disc 3 contains "Smog" (1962), with Baker and another large group of musicians. Again Umiliani is impressive, and Helen Merrill is heard on a nice vocal performance. This is yet another well composed, well arranged and played ST. This too is well worth hearing for Umiliani's work. It's by turns beautiful, subtle, and dramatic in the best sense of Film Noir. This is a personal favorite for the feeling/mood captured in the overall score.
The packaging is a bit different (and not as nice in my opinion) than the previous sets from Moochin' About. The three discs snap inside a quad-fold cardboard package. The CD trays have reproductions of Movie cards and a b&w photo of Baker. There's no booklet which is a real disservice to fans. This slides into a fairly thin cardboard slipcase. The previous box sets all contained thick very informative, interesting booklets with great period graphics and photos. Why this set is different is somewhat of a mystery. My Baker/Umiliani set (which I received in Jan. '14) has a slipcase with a b&w photo of Baker (looking very hip) standing on an Italian street next to a poster for "Intrigo A Los Angeles". For a time the (European) cover had a different graphic and Umiliani's name was as prominent as Baker's. But Amazon (U.S.) now shows the original cover graphic. This set was held back from it's original release date, and some changes were made to the packaging--but possibly for only a short time in Europe. I assume everything else is as I described it.
The previous ST collections from this label have become very well known to excited fsns in Europe--less so in the U.S. And that's too bad. I'm not a "soundtrack guy" except for 1950's Film Noir STs, and the previous sets all contain a great deal of fine jazz from the periods in question. Truth be known, the previous sets I feel are better as far as hearing some good/great, straight jazz--some of it played by a number of well known American musicians/groups. But as a fan of Film Noir STs I like this Baker/Umiliani set too. The previous box sets have all been reviewed by myself and/or others, or check out Amazon UK for more reviews if you're interested. All are well worth adding to your jazz and/or ST library.
One last note--there's a new 6 CD set (similar to the first three sets) titled "Biopics" just released which contains both well known and some fine lesser/basically unknown in the U.S. STs. If this type of music is your thing (like me), shop around for the best price. I've seen the price jump $20 or so higher than originally offered, and then settle back to around $30-$35 or so from U.S. sellers. If you're familiar with the first few Moochin' About collections, you know how good they are--and this new set is similar.
At any rate, what's here is pretty fantastic stuff. Moochin' About have compiled all they have come across for the equivalent of five films. As fans of soundtracks know, this stuff tends to have been released piecemeal back in the day, so it's nice to see them put it all together. There's the obvious West Coast sound, a little brassy Euro-pop, a slight bossa feel here and there. You get the picture.
My two complaints, aside from the artist's credit, are that this set is a little light on content (discs are about 43~ minutes each) and unlike other Moochin' About albums, this one does not have much in the way on liner notes. Still, the music is great, the sound quality is probably as good as it's going to get and the price is hard to beat. Just know this is probably going to appeal more to the soundtrack collector than the Baker fan.
