Artist: LUCIANI, MARIA TERESA
Title: Free Jazz
Format: LP
Label: Cinedelic
Country: Italy
Price: $33.00
"Cinedelic Records present a reissue of Maria Teresa Lucianis Free Jazz. Originally pressed in 1972 in Italy by Le Monde, a label which has in its catalog only six titles released in few copies for radio and TV, Free Jazz is an insanely rare library music masterpiece. Absolutely the hottest, weirdest, psych-jazz album of the era. Maria Teresa Luciani is the sister of Maestro Riccardo A. Luciani. The only known members of the session are the great Gino Marinacci on flute, here on his most obscure recording session, and Riccardo A. Luciani on all piano, Fender Rhodes and treated keyboard delays. The whole album is outstanding, with various moods and atmospheres - from the groovy fuzz distortions of "Logaritmo In Do", the funky drums and jazzy psychedelia of "Free Flute In Beat", the modal cum spiritual jazz of "Playing For Fun", the frantic rhythms of "Traffico Caotico" and "Crazy Morning", the amazing hard bop on "Fotogrammi", the experimental jazz on "Walking In The Night" and "Free Jazz" to the beautiful "Free Flute" theme. Outrageous drum skills, electric piano played with a wah-wah pedal, studio effects, echo delays and psychedelic themes. All covers of this reissue are unique and unrepeatable with orange and black splashes of paint. Copies are numbered and include a download code." - Cinedelic.

Title: Sounds Of The City
Format: LP
Label: Finders Keepers
Country: UK
Price: $28.00
"Finders Keepers present a reissue of Maria Teresa Lucianis Sounds Of The City, originally released under the Italian name Suoni Di Una Città in 1972. Welcome to the parallel musical universe of Miss Maria Teresa Luciani, a landscape of sonic architecture and theoretical composition constructed by a family of engineers that reinvented the wheel before the vehicle even began the journey. Imagine, if you will, the musical equivalent of Peter Cooks Archigram group or the soundtrack to Charles and Ray Eamess private sketchbooks, hinting at a new municipal, utopian metropolis, just hours before the blueprints are suspiciously misplaced by the courier and mainstream pop building regulations piss on our asbestos bonfire. These 1972 constructions of progressive, cyclic, proto-industrial color music were never intended for public habitation. These are the Sounds Of The City in a galaxy far, far beneath our radar and above your expectations that was never built. Pseudo-futurist pop music, cubic folk, tape-op-art. Before the needle hits the first groove, the story of Maria Teresa Luciani reads like an Alphaville caper full of foreign intrigue, low intensity identification fraud, secret codes, family bonds, mistrust and wanderlust... Naturally, you are holding a genuine Finders Keepers article. To say this rare Italian concept album is "unbelievable" is justified on multiple levels. This multi-story storage facility of found sounds, radiophonic samples, tape loops, early electronic music experiments, mechanical folk, cinematic vision, sound design, educated music theory, political pop, and high concept art-as-noise successfully layers more musical ideas within its unique structure than one would think possible for a solo artist within any musical genre. This is why Sounds Of The City presents a brand new genre defying compositional framework, pre-dating sampling culture, cut-and-paste plunderism, and industrial music in the process. Pre-digital, indefinable and genuinely unbelievable. But who is Maria Teresa Luciani? On hearing this record, respected collectors and enthusiasts have suggested "the female answer to Basil Kirchin", or "the Italian Daphne Oram", both with justified cause. Mystery, myth, legend, teacher, artist, inventor, author, musician, psychologist, daughter, and (possibly most importantly) sister." - Finders Keepers.
