Nino Nardini & Roger Roger – Jungle Obsession


Released in 1971, under the blanket of library music anonymity, “Jungle Obsession” is one of those rare and precious records whose extraordinary personality is instantly recognised by the ear of the listener. The album sits somewhere between solar exoticism and primitive psychedelics and is entirely focused on the beauty and mysteries of Rudyard Kipling’s Jungle Book in its hunt for a fascinating artistic El Dorado. Leading this musical expedition, we find two of library musics greats, the amazing Roger Roger (1911-1995) and Nino Nardini (1912-1994). These outstanding conductors took the role of mad scientists at the legendary Ganaro Studio for the recording of this album. Going beyond music styles from the era, they blend genres with obvious success. “Jungle Obsession” vibrates to an audacious and minimal orchestration that highlights percussion, whilst a forest of luxurious chords wreathe through rough guitar assaults and electronic soundscapes. Intoxicated by these subtle melodies, feline rhythms and flagrant poetry, all that is left for us to do is to lose ourselves in the heart of this savage bewitching branch exotica.
