Sonor Music Editions proudly presents A Tempo Di Jazz by Maestro Piero Umiliani. This lost gem captures the formative years of modern jazz in late 1950s Italy - alongside the legendary Basso-Valdambrini recordings in the early 1960s, as well as the early years of Piero Umiliani's long and prolific career as a composer with over 190 soundtracks, 40 library albums, and 35 TV title themes recorded.

A Tempo Di Jazz includes seven original compositions by Piero Umiliani recorded in 1959. Here, at the age of 33, he lays a perfect ground with himself as a pianist, accompanied by some of the best Italian soloists at the time: Marcello Boschi on alto saxophone and flute, Ivan Vandor on tenor saxophone, Peppe Carta on bass, and the American trombonist Bill Gilmore. With plenty of room for improvisation, the sextet fuses big band moods with West Coast experimentation of Latin American rhythms and modern jazz ballads.

Five compositions are outtakes from Piero Umiliani's mega-rarity Tempo Jazz, released on RCA Custom in 1960, while "Tema In Blues" has been published on the two - impossible to obtain - 45 releases Moderato Swing (RCA Camden 45CP 112) and Tema In Blues (RCA Custom 45 R3) from 1960 as well as the yet unreleased track "Mezza Cottura".

The music has been carefully transferred and remastered from the original mono master tapes, and mono lacquer cut by Jukka Sarapää at Timmion Cutting.
