Piero Piccioni - Lucky Luciano (1973)

1. Underground Sketches
2. Magic of New York
3. In point of love
4. Conjectures
5. Red Shift
6. Moonlight Serenade
7. Love comes round again
8. Sad tales
9. Red Shift N.2
10. Love Again
11. Burning Point
Of Piccioni's 1970s material, this is one of our favourite albums. It mixes his trademark loungey jazz style with an updated, tight 70s jazz-funk backbone. There are two outstanding tunes on here, the lovely downtempo mellow funker 'Conjectures' and the jazz-funk groover 'Magic Of New York'. Either way, it's a strong album and well worth finding.

Huge thanks for the Lucky Luciano film soundtrack by Piccioni. I am a big fan of the film so finally discovering a soundtrack was released is total joy!

If you want to know one aspect of the mosaic that forms the secret history of the 20th century, namely the interface between trans-national criminal networks, military and state run intelligence agencies and the politics of fascism and reactionary Catholicism then this film provides a fascinating insight into this hidden thread.

A truly great post.
