Montefiore Cocktail: Raccolta no. 1

The Montefiore brothers are saxophonists and producers whose previous forays have been in the acid jazz category. These 13 lounge cuts include Ravel’s “Bolero,” the title tune from the film A Man and a Woman, and the Star Trek theme. “Crazy Beat” has a sax solo by Germano Montefiori, inspirational model for his sons and a bandleader in Italy during the ’60s. “Gipsy Woman” has a swinging samba-infused beat. Some of this is cheesy but most of it is very hip party music.
