NOTES
A driving Italian soundtrack from the height of the cop/crime years – done with really full arrangements by Franco Micalizzi, in a way that easily rivals some of the best American work of the genre in the 70s! This score from 1976 (here reissued on wax) features an amazing band, spacey grooves, some jazz atmospheres, timeless brass-crescendos, the charm of '70s funk and the untameable talent of the maestro! Most of the orchestrations are quite bold – upbeat rhythms with basslines punching up the bottom, and horns overflowing on the top – all in a brashly brassy style that really fits the high level of action in the film! Other numbers get a bit more mellow, but not in a spooky, atonal way – more in a slightly sweet quality that almost has slight 70s erotic undertones. A few other tracks almost get clubby at points – mixing guitar, keyboards, and snapping rhythms into some great instrumental grooves that might have been right at home on the dancefloor in New York.
