A 12 track film soundtracks album (41m 35s) — released June 23rd 2014 on Schema Rearward

24 hours in the life of an Italian lawyer in a livid and

exhausting Los Angeles. His encounters with his compatriots,

the raising consciousness about a society obsessed with the

myth of success. More than the action and characters, here

are the anguish and troubles of the main character that

matter. One of the best scores signed by Piero Umiliani, a

unique soundtrack settled in an immense Los Angeles as it

has never been shown in an American movie.

Piero Umiliani was contacted in 1958 by Mario Monicelli to

compose the soundtrack of the movie "I Soliti Ignoti" (Big

Deal on Madonna Street). It was not the usual kind of

soundtrack, but the very first Italian soundtrack entirely made

of Jazz pieces. The Movie received a nomination at the

Academy Award and even if it did not succeed in winning the

prize (which was awarded to "Mon Oncle" by Jacques Tati) it

launched Umiliani's career and started the prolific era of movie

scores in Italy. Then in 1962 was released Smog, featuring

Chet Baker and the amazing vocalist Helen Merrill. A

soundtrack not to miss.
