Accadde A....... (Black Lp)

Genre: Library/Soundtracks

Out of stock

Black vinyl edition. Here's a revamped reissue of this extremely rare Italian library album featuring Silvana Simoncini (Arawak's wife) on the cover, and with new liner notes.  Long revered in connoisseur circles, but always elusive almost to the status of a myth, Arawak’s Accadde a.. takes us on a journey across the planet, depicting faraway places with an uncanny sense of style, using a tapestry of sounds and instruments, sometimes mellow and dreamy, sometimes engulfing the listener in a funky wicked drum break groove. We are offered the chance of a unique journey that takes us from Harlem to Boston, passing through Cuzco, Bali, Bahia, Belfast, Lima and more.. Arawak is one of a multitude of pseudonyms that Luciano Simoncini used in his career as a composer for film scores and background music for radio and television in Italy. Luciano Simoncini was an italian pianist, arranger and conductor (born in Piedimonte Matese, province of Caserta, September 25th , 1939, died in Rome November 8th , 2011). Originally released in 1970 on Simoncini’s own Squirrel Records this album managed to stay under the radar until Hip Hop performer Quasimoto (alter ego of producer Madlib) sampled “Accade a Bali” for the “Suono libero” series on 70’s Jazz funk from Italian library music. Since then, the album slowly but steadily progressed to its well deserved cult status. This release is fully licensed and comes with liner notes by Luciano Simoncini’s family friend Claudio Casalini and Golden Pavilion producer and record collector Antonio Barreiros.  The laid-back grooves and enticing dreamy atmospheres alternate with more funky sounds to make a truly unique music experience that will appeal to fans of Janko Nilovic, Stefano Torossi, Remigio Ducros, Pino Canizzo.. Strictly limited to 500 copies in black vinyl and 200 copies in splattered multi-colour vinyl.
