Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing. From the legendary Omicron label's secret archives, one of the rarest and nearly impossible to find album by Piero Umiliani. Gli italiani e l'industria is the soundtrack of a mysterious TV documentary by Romolo Marcellini broadcasted in 1967 - and never shown again - which was focused on virtue and vice of Italian post-economic boom industrialization. The music perfectly reflects the contrasts of the Italian society of that period, equally divided by consumerism and alienation, with a number of tracks deliberately easy-jazz and pop-beat on the one hand (with gorgeous ballads for vibraphone and killer organ tracks), and on the other with a bounce of compositions ultra-jazz, close to free jazz, with electronics and avant-garde solutions that Umiliani will explore completely in the further years. An essential album of easy-listening and experimental sound, necessary to comprehend the richness of a genius of Italian soundtracks.
