Italian film composer Piero Umiliani enjoyed a long and illustrious career, creating nearly 200 film soundtracks, along with 40 music library LPs and some 35 television themes. Born in Florence in 1926, he was first recognised internationally for his work on the soundtrack of 1958 crime caper 'I Soliti Ignoti' (AKA 'Big Deal On Madonna Street', 'Persons Unknown' or 'Le Pigeon'), which featured noted jazz trumpeter, Chet Baker - the first time, in fact, that jazz music had been used for an Italian comedy feature. Umiliani teamed with Baker again in 1961, along with Croatian-American jazz singer Helen Merrill, for the soundtrack of 'Smog', a drama about an Italian lawyer's unintended escapades in Los Angeles, and his work was later featured on American and British television shows, including 'The Muppets', 'The Benny Hill Show' and 'The Red Skelton Show'. 'Il Paradiso Dell'Uomo' (AKA 'Man's Paradise'), subtitled 'Forbidden Japan,' was a little-known documentary released in 1963 focussing on the roles assigned to women in the country, from the traditional pearl-fishing divers of the coast and urban factory workers to traditional dancers and the ambiguous world of geisha and striptease. This impossibly-rare soundtrack mixes eastern and western musical elements,
veering from classical tropes to swing jazz, with Chinese singer Mei Lang Chang on a couple of tracks and singer/composer/musicologist Francesco Potenza leading the chorus on another.
