Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Originally released in 1969, "Fischiando in beat" presents twelve gems of instrumental beat music, fabulous specimen of that music genre often labelled with the much-abused term 'lounge' - or 'easy listening', if you prefer. Forget about the experimental "Synthi Time": here you can only breathe an incredible desire for fun and dream of the late 60s, Rome and its exclusive cocktail party.
