Librerie Musicali

Four Flies presents Librerie Musicali by Dancefloor Stompers. With the main intent to pay homage to the soul-jazz labels like Blue Note, Verve, Stax / Volt and the Mod style, Dancefloor Stompers finally arrive at their first studio album after reaching propensity for 'cinematic' taste through the work for different performances, reading-concert and commissions for short films.

With the main intent to pay homage to the soul-jazz labels like Blue Note, Verve, Stax / Volt and the Mod style, Dancefloor Stompers finally arrive at their first studio album after reaching propensity for 'cinematic' taste through the work for different performances, reading-concert and commissions for short films.

Librerie Musicali starts with the intent to merge these different experiences, trying to put together passion for black music (soul-jazz, rhythm'n'blues, Hammond sound and funk) and fascination for the great music for cinema, television and radio, in particular produced in Italy between Sixties and Seventies.

Devotion to those models is clearly stated by the attempt to reproduce sound, instrumentation, recording and mixing techniques, graphics... risky choice in times of digital recording and plugins.
Not a simple nostalgic attitude, though. More the desire and curiosity to rebuild the taste for research, the great joy of interpretation or the arranging creativity that you could breathe, for example, at the Italian RCA and RAI TV studios of that time.

That's why, besides the basic quartet (drums, bass, guitar and organ / keyboards), we can listen also saxophones, trumpets, trombones, flute, vibraphone, percussion, harmonica, 12 strings guitar, ancient instruments such as harpsichord and fortepiano, string section, recorded mostly live, except for some overdubs.

A very special set that tries to blend the groove of Booker T. & The MG's, The Meters, JB's, Horace Silver and Jimmy Smith with a beat & orchestral sound typical of Marc 4, Piero Umiliani, Ennio Morricone, Stelvio Cipriani, Armando Trovajoli, Franco Micalizzi, Gian Piero Reverberi.
