Moggi AKA Piero Umiliani

Tra Scienza E Fantascienza

    Born in 1926, Piero Umiliani started his career as a jazz pianist (he occasionally recorded with Chet Baker) and started working on film soundtracks in the late 50s. Known as the man who brought jazz to Italian cinema, he left his mark on a long series of notorious Giallo and Mondo movies, soft sex films and Eurospy thrillers, getting praise for mastering sleazy funk, experimental electronica, or jazzy themes, and making a name among his peers named Ennio Morricone or Riz Ortolani.

    It was with the Swedish Mondo "Sweden Heaven and Hell" that Piero landed his biggest hit - the infamous "Mah nà Mah nà" (originally "Hooray for the Swedish Sauna") which was later used in Sesame Street, The Muppet Show, Benny Hill and many more.

    Originally released in 1976, "Tra Scienza E Fantascienza" finds Piero under his Moggi monicker experimenting with jazz, electronic music, retro-futuristic grooves, minimalism, and soundtrack-ready themes. Always elegant, diverse yet homogeneous, and ahead if its time in the most unpretentious way, Moggi's gem of an album is an absolutely unique piece of music, the perfect soundtrack for a sci-fi movie that doesn't exist.

    The album is superbly remastered and can finally be appreciated in all its splendor. Enjoy!
