    Here's another one, "Amarsi Un Po'", a quite simple pop funk ballad. Enjoy!

    Default Vecchio Frac

    This is a classic Italian song written by Domenico Modugno in 1955.
    Many different versions have been recorded - this structure comes from his original one.
    Enjoy!

    P.S.: "frac" is the correct name of the dress, not "frack", and thus it was titled.

    "More" is the musical theme of the undistinguished 1962 Italian film Mondo Cane. It was very popular with adult audiences in the 1960s; I played it at virtually every gig I did back then. It is a piece of very limited musical interest with 5 8-measure sections (AABAB'). The harmonic content is mostly I-vi-ii-V. Why do I post this arrangement? Because if you play for Senior Citizens, as I do, you should play this tune for them, tipping your hat to their memories of half-a-century ago.

    A lead sheet for "More" can be found in a Hal Leonard publication: The Real Ultimate Jazz Fake Book (this really is the title, not to be confused with other Hal Leonard fake books).

    I play it at 90 bpm using the Latin - Cuba: Bolero style.

    More - Oliviero, Ortolani, Ciorciolini

    "Al di lÓ" (= Beyond) was a popular Italian song in the 1960s and is still a favorite in the Italian-American community. It was premiered in 1961 and was featured in the 1962 film Rome Adventure. It has a standard 32-bar ABAC structure. My arrangement includes a short tag ending.

    A clip from Rome Adventure with Emilio Pericoli singing the tune (and a lovely young Suzanne Pleshette listening) can be found on Youtube. I play the tune with the Latin - Cuba: Bolero style at 100 bpm.

    This is the first of five Italian favorites that I will be posting. I prepared the chord charts for these tunes after receiving a request to include some Italian songs in my playlist for a solo piano gig. "Al di lÓ" and the others were well received, with many of the audience singing along.

    Al di la - Carlo Donida
