va -- Nebulosa [Graham's Summer Comp 2022]


This summer's special comp, for your trips, parties and lazy mornings. A few latin-jazz piano tunes (Tenorio Jr and Lalo Schifrin) or funkier ventures (Quincy Jones' theme to the Bill Cosby show, Bob James' magical "Nautilus", and a couple of great songs by Stax singer Luther Ingram), a handful of groovy - although slightly crackly - Anatolian 7 inches (notably Biricik's emo-prog "Iste Meydan", backed by cult psych-rock band Dadaslar, and Silüetler's 9/8 surf-rock hit "Kaşık Havası")... A few outsiders too : Os Brazões' amazing "Volkswagen Blue" (penned by Gilberto Gil), Anadol's haunting "Ablamın Gözleri" taken from her latest album "Felicita", Marc Bolan's first ever single "The Wizard", Ennio Morricone's theme tune to "The Italian Job", and Zalla a.k.a. Piero Umiliani's superb "Pianure D'Asia" from his cult "Paesaggi" album.
