Format: LP

Genre: Jazz

In stock


*Limited edition of 500 copies.* Sonor Music Editions is bringing out a previously unknown Italian Library session from the golden era: Rhythm And Sound by Mandrassi & Zollinger with the I Beati studio band. Mandrassi - alias for Anna Maria Assunta Andreassi - is one of the first female composers of Library Music in Italy while Zollinger is assumed to be Sergio Pagano, brother of the famed Italian author, composer and singer Mario Pagano. Originally released in 1974 for the private studio label Ludo Record, this album remained in obscurity for almost 50 years. Outstanding Funk grooves and music that would fit any chase scene in a 70s crime flick - this sounds like a missing link between The Fine Machine's Habitat and the legendary Arawak's Accadde a... recordings, the latter sampled by Madlib for Quasimoto's first album.

A countless breaks galore, filled with outstanding funk grooves and chasing beats. The jam sounds like a missing link between The Fine Machine ‘Habitat’ and the legendary Arawak ‘Accadde a..’ recordings, with its uptempo rhythms allover and the coolest funky instrumentation played by a mysterious studio group.
