Pianist, composer, arranger and conductor – Lalo Schifrin does it all.
In the 60’s and 70’s he was in high demand for writing scores and themes and he’s the man behind the soundtracks for movies such as Steve McQueen’s Bullitt and the all-star cast Kelly’s Heroes.
This track was on the flip-side of an 7″ and on the album Music From The Motion Picture “Once A Thief” And Other Themes.
I’m not sure which movie – if any – this track originates from but, man, listen to those drums :)
From the soundtrack to the movie “Shaft in Africa” this piece by jazz musician Johnny Pate is funky as hell.
From the soundtrack to the movie “The Soul Of Nigger Charley” comes this great theme by American arranger and record producer Don Costa.
From the soundtrack to the movie “The Love Machine” from 1971, comes this Artie Butler track.
The release is credited to Dionne Warwicke but no doubt this super slow bossa track is Artie’s.
Cozy bossa piece from Italian soundtrack and easy listening jazz composer Giuseppe De Luca.
This is from the soundtrack to the 1970 movie “Das Bildnis des Dorian Gray”.
Flip side of 7″ release of theme tune to the Italian TV Series “La famiglia Benvenuti”.
Nice Italian bossa sound on this piece from the sought-after vinyl release “L’Italia Vista Dal Cielo” from around 1967.
Originally composed and used as a soundtrack for one or more of 14 RAI documentaries about Italy.
Some sources say it was released in 1969 but it is pretty difficult to find the exact year of release and in which of the documentaries the music was used.
It was re-released on CD on label Cometa in 2012.
This is unmistakably Henry Mancini bossa sound.
Flip side of the release of the theme from the Peter Seller classic The Party.
Track is the flip side of a 7″ soundtrack from a French movie called Le Mariage Collectif – apparently full of Danish actors. Weird.
Anyway – the music is slow and funky. And was reissued in 2010.
A short funky piece with a lot of horns and flute.
By Brazilian composer Zé Rodix, this is the title piece from a movie called “Motel”.
