Gato Barbieri, Last Tango In Paris (1972)
I bought this – not so much because I loved the film (though I did like the film; I’ve only seen it the one time). No, I bought this because I’ve been digging Gato Barbieri again lately and I actually didn’t know he performed this score. (The music wasn’t the crucial aspect of the film as/when I saw it). But of course now, lounging in with this album, I do want to see the film again. But I love this album – I’ve always been a fan of jazzy/jazz-composed scores. Even if I think – in part – the “cinematic” kind of jazz is probably what puts a lot of people off jazz. For if you’re no jazz listener then perhaps hearing it at the movies is your only exposure? Anyone, I really love this album – was a good pick-up; a nice find.
