Augusto Martelli – Black Sound From White People
Sonor Music Editions is happy to launch the first official vinyl reissue of a sought-after, Italian, Latin Jazz/Funk album: Black Sound From White People – yes, we too agree that this is an unfortunate title, but it’s real – by Augusto Martelli.
Ill-considered name aside, the sounds are amazing on this 1972 recording, featuring library music heavyweights like Tullio De Piscopo on drums, Giancarlo Barigozzi on flute and Pino Presti on bass. It’s the pinnacle of Augusto Martelli’s music and the best album in his long career as composer, conductor, arranger and TV presenter. Originally copies exchange hands for many hundreds of dollars, and our friends at SME have made it accessible at last, on 180gr. wax. Edition of 500 copies. Includes a reprint of the original inner sleeve.
