So good, and so kind of unexpected. Bought a charity shop copy the other day.

This is amazing is what it is. I like that Alice & John stopped using ‘jazz’ as a term for what they did, they just called it ‘universal music’.

Wow, good find! I’ve only got it on the first JBO compilation

Top thread…3 that come to mind off the top

My favourite Italian piano tune, clue’s in the title!

Always had a soft spot for this one

The Guv’nor…when the piano breaks on this it’s pure gold

The follow up is in the same league. Such a don producer.

This is electric piano, does it count? There’s a bit of acid too if that helps.

This is really lovely but if you’re not a fan of deep slo-mo, pulsating, arpegiatting, sweeping electronica you’ll have to skip forward to about 8mins in :wink::joy:

That looks like Crystal Pier in San Diego, we experienced a 7.2 quake whilst on the end of it, most bloody scary thing I’ve ever experienced, being made of wood it was rocking like a mofo, had to hold it together as wife and 8 year old daughter thought we were done for. No idea why there’s a pic of it in the vid tho… /trivia. Great track.
