Edinpan record label

Logo of the Edinpan label founded in the 1970s in Rome by composer and conductor Bruno Nicolai

Bruno Nicolai during his studies at the Conservatorio di Santa Cecilia in Rome established a strong bond of friendship with Ennio Morricone, which was followed in the following years by a long course of artistic collaboration; in fact, Bruno Nicolai from 1965 to 1974 held the position of conductor during Maestro Ennio Morricone’s soundtrack recordings, leaving the latter to devote himself, together with the director, to the control and synchronization phase of the music. In 1975, Bruno Nicolai opened the “Emmequattro” studio and associated Edipan music publishing house on Rome’s Viale Mazzini, an activity carried on along with his work as a composer of soundtracks and chamber and symphonic music.

Always animated by a transversal production including medieval and contemporary experimental music, the Roman label releases seminal records of Italian jazz: “The Day After the Silence,” “From Always to Now ” and “Soft Journey” by Roman pianist Enrico Pieranunzi (the latter recorded with American trumpeter Chet Baker), “Hinterland” by the Claudio Fasoli Jazz Group, but also works by the “Saxes Machine” (an orchestral formation led by Bruno Biriaco) and American clarinetist Bill Smith.
