Lalo Schifrin - Caveman OST. CD.
(Aleph - ALEP032)
Renowned Brazilian composer and pianist Schifrin (originally a member of Dizzy Gillespie's quintet, but best known to many for the infamous JAWS soundtrack) scored this 1981 monster-comedy written as a vehicle for Ringo Starr's recently discovered acting aspiration: despite the silly nature of the film, the music is a delight, particularly the parts that depict the invention of music by Starr and his cave companions, ther car chase parody, and the lumbering motif of the slow moving dinosaurs. In short, Schifrin took a project some would have considered laughable and made worthwhile music out of it the way he knew best. A satisfying orchestral experience.
Lalo Schifrin - Les Felins. CD.
(Aleph - ALEP031)
The full soundtrack to Rene Clement's highly respected cult film, written and arranged by the great Lalo Schifrin- known largely to outsiders for his arrangement of John Williams' score to Spielberg's "Jaws" but also an influential jazz pianist in his own right. The music definitely betrays the Argentinian's jazz roots, and features half of the best known French beboppers of the time (not to mention a track later covered by the great Jimmy Smith) but in truth is one of the starting points of what we now know as "lounge", and also a seminal work in the soundtracks field, laying the foundations for Bullitt, Dirty Harry and several others. All the music from the film is here on CD for the first time, so one can imagine the film in its noir glory, or maybe just Jane Fonda in that basque. Up to you...
Lalo Schifrin - Magnum Force OST. CD.
(Aleph - ALEP033)
Soundtrack to the second of Clint Eastwood's epoch-making series of 'Dirty Harry' films, as written and performed by noted Brazilian composer Schifrin, best known for his work on 'Jaws' and several other blockbusters, but also a jazz pianist of note. As later immortalised by Robyn Hitchcock in the song 'A Man's Gotta Know His Limitations, Briggs'. The first ever issue of the complete score on CD, complete with snatches of witty Eastwood dialogue.
