Founded in 2013 and based in Rome, Italy, Sonor Music Editions specializes in synchronization music for films, radio, and television. The label shares rare and obscure pop, jazz-funk, breakbeats, cinematic lounge, funk, psychedelic and progressive music, spacey cosmic sounds, easy listening, and all that good vintage Italian vibes hailing from library and soundtrack music production. The latest album on the label is by the legendary Italian jazz sax player Enzo Scoppa, and it's the first CD ever released on the label. New & Old Friends, featuring the famed and timeless duo Santucci-Scoppa active since 1958, is a modern jazz work and interpretation of bebop, big band, and contemporary jazz with sestet, quintet, and orchestra accompaniment. Alongside Basso-Valdambrini Sextet, the Santucci-Scoppa Quintet is the most ancient and solid ensemble in the history of Italian jazz. On this refined jam session, every performance is high quality and perfectly executed, thanks to the skill of talented musicians like the great arranger Antonello Sorrentino, the legendary trumpet Cicci Santucci, and the expert drummer Pietro Iodice. Liner notes by Adriano Mazzoletti.
