When the description reads “when Soul-Jazz meets Italian cinematic style” our interests are immediately piqued and we’re all ears with hearing what quite this could be hitting for. Descriptions can be vast and often times misleading but in the case of the upcoming LP from a new outfit known as Dancefloor Stompers. Their debut album “Librerie Musicali” on the Four Flies Records label combines some of our favorite elements in one tightly knit package that sounds cinematically fantastic and has moments of dance floor appeal when serving to the right audience.
“Librerie Musicali starts with the intent to merge these different experiences, trying to put together passion for black music (soul-jazz, rhythm’n’blues, Hammond sound and funk) and fascination for the great music for cinema, television and radio, in particular produced in Italy between Sixties and Seventies”
Pulling inspiration from various sources including the greats such as Booker T. & The MG’s, The Meters, JB’s, Horace Silver and Jimmy Smith with a beat & orchestral sound typical of Marc 4, Piero Umiliani, Ennio Morricone, Stelvio Cipriani, Armando Trovajoli, Franco Micalizzi, Gian Piero Reverberi. It’s obvious that they’ve done their homework and studied a sound that has withstood the test of time and remains to be one that one favorite by the likes of collectors, music lovers and composers worldwide.
