* First official reissue ever on black vinyl.* “Tempo di Naja” is part of a reissues series, made in collaboration with Edizioni Leonardi (Milan, Italy), of extremely rare library music LP’s published between late ’60s and early ’70s, most of which have never been released again until today, and that are finally made available again for collectors and sonorization music lovers.
Remigio Ducros, is a pianist and composer, husband of Daniela Casa; they wrote the two first volumes of “America Giovane” among others. "Naja" is an entirely Italian 'slang' term, synonymous with the expression 'military service', a period in which young boys were trained to become soldiers. While one would therefore expect gloomy war-like atmospheres from this LP, “Tempo di Naja” sounds bright and sometimes cheerful, as in “Marcia longa” or “Fanfara in festa”; the music is in fact inspired by typical situations of the military service, still very distant from the real war context: “Discoteca”, “Libera uscita”, “Montagna”, “Pedalata”, “Femmine” are just a few examples. But above all “Sgambata” stands out as a killer jazz-funk tune with a deadly groove that would perfectly fit in an early ’70s crime movie!
