Kronos Records is proud to present for the first time ever on CD a library music collection of tracks by legendary Maestro PIERO UMILIANI.
The tracks present on this compact disc were previously issued between 1971 and 1975 on three privately issued vinyl LP's on UMILIANI's own label LIUTO and OMICRON : AFRICA (1971), POLINESIA (1972) and CONTINENTE NERO (1975) and recorded at SoundWorkShop Studios in Rome. The pieces of this collection blend jazz, funk, world music and progressive rock with percussive breaks, marimba solos, piano riffs and moog licks in a state of the art performance by Piero and his orchestra.
Piero Umiliani was a great traveler and has done so with the eyes and ears of the musician. Listening to Africa-Day is not just a musical experience, it is a journey into the infinite world of Piero, a journey through his love for music and life.
