Il Guardiano del Faro - Domani, 1977


Il Guardiano del Faro ("the lighthouse keeper"), aka Federico Monti Arduini, was a very prolific Italian musician, composer, and producer who was credited as an early adopter of the Moog synthesizer. Despite having had a slew of best-selling songs in Italy, there's very little information available about him on the internet--I don't even remember how this wound up in my hands! Really smart orchestral sensibility applied to lush, synthetic space-age smooth jazz fusion. Ideal cheeky retro-futurist bachelor pad soundtrack. Don't miss the syrupy quivering cover of "I Only Have Eyes for You."
