This Irma La Douce compilation collects instrumentals featuring the light soul and jazz of '60s and '70s Europe. Ugo Fusco's "First" pairs jazzy piano and funky organ, while Mario Molino's "Iron Piano" mixes jazzy explorations and staccato organ. Latin-flavored tracks include the Brasilian Boys' "Per L'Eternita," with gentle flute/piano and bossa nova beat, and the Cabiloos' "Barrio Bueno," with electric piano and insistent Latin beat.
M.J.Q.'s "Central Park" stands out with xylophone taking lead over jazz-funk groove. Not as inventive as similar compilations, Suono Libero provides consistent, melodic flow and merits attention from genre fans.
