Sweetly funky and very slinky – this is one of the best early 70s scores by the great Italian composer Piero Umiliani! The record has lots of bubbling electric piano, rumbling electric basslines, warm acoustic percussion, and moody wordless vocals. At some level, the album sounds a lot like the contemporaneous work by the great Italian Fender Rhodes combo – but it’s also filled with a spacey madness that could only come from the pen of Umiliani!

Original soundtrack from the motion Picture Blazing Magnum (Una magnum special per Tony Saitta) composed by Armando Trovaioli. The thypical american cop movies sound with a great Orchestra and the orchestration in the style of the 70s will let you dive into the funkyest decade of the history! A great proof of the genious of the Maestro that gives evidence of his unearthly class.

Soundtrack of italian movie “La Banda Del Gobbo” by Franco Micalizzi, one of the most prolific composers of the Italian Cinema. M° Micalizzi became famous around the world for his OST for the cult Western “Lo chiamavano Trinità ” (1970) (available on Digitmovies CDDM026), but also for his other famous OST of “Poliziotteschi” (Police movies) like “Italia a mano armata” (1976), “Roma a mano armata” (1976), “Napoli violenta” (1976), “Il cinico, l’infame e il violento” (1977). For “La banda del gobbo” Franco Micalizzi wrote a sparse, but effective score based on a main theme introduced by the electric piano then developed by moog, brass and percussions in a funky mood (Tr.1). This motif is reprised several times throughout the score, sometimes with slow, another time with fast renditions (Tr.2, Tr.4, Tr.5, Tr.7, Tr.9, Tr.10, Tr.11, Tr.13, Tr.15, Tr.18). Franco Micalizzi also composed suspense music for strings (Tr.8, Tr.16) and various tracks of Source Music like a Sirtaki (Tr.3), a disco music tune (Tr.6), a romantic ballade for voice and orchestra (Tr.12), church music for organ (Tr.14) and funeral music (tr.17).

“Milano odia: la polizia non può sparare” (aka “Almost human”) is one of the milestones of the Italian Police movies. This is the soundtrack with the music composed by Ennio Morricone and conducted by Bruno Nicolai, Morricone has created a symphonic score that alternates between dramatic, percussive moments and other romantic ones. The music is at the same time nostalgic and mysterious given by the frequent use of the sax, enjoy!

Ennio Morricone composed hundreds of original soundtracks for this style of low-budget thriller. The original soundtrack for this obscure Italian thriller from 1970 prominently features the voice of Edda Dell’Orso, who cropped up frequently in Morricone’s work during this period. Additionally, the Canori Moderni vocal ensemble features heavily in the evocative soundtrack. Most striking is the manner in which the composer uses repetition in an almost minimalist fashion. The unusual orchestrations of his work, which would later become a signature of his soundtrack compositions, are strikingly evident here. ~ Skip Jansen.

Complete original soundtrack music of the motion picture “Italia A Mano Armata” (A Special Cop In Action, USA). An excellent score by the Maestro that for this movie created a polydral soundtrack with a good deal of funk, whose powerful energy is given by the brass section of the orchestral.
