Piero Umiliani - Sophisticated Lady

Piero Umiliani was an Italian composer most noted for his soundtrack work. He transitioned from wartime bar pianist to big-band jazz player, film score composer to Lounge musician, yet the consistency that remained was his passion for the music of Duke Ellington. This 1974 recording of Sophisticated Lady is part of a collection that showcases this passion, with Umiliani giving a continental Lounge twist to Ellington's beautiful compositions.
