Bixio-Frizzi-Tempera's Vai Gorilla
21-Aug-2010 - Chris Soundtrack Corner has released Vai Gorilla, an amazing effort from the famous Italian compositional trio of Franco Bixio, Fabio Frizzi and Vince Tempera. Gloriously this 1976 crime thriller was graced with an explosive and seductive score faithfully executed in a powerful, funk-fueled blaxploitation style. Many will be pleasantly blown away by just how dead-on three Italians could be in delivering a sultry and sexy R&B score; a work heavy with effective riffs and jams that greats such as Isaac Hayes and Curtis Mayfield would have instantly recognized as the "real thing". In all likelihood this production will deliver a stunning eye-opener for jaded connoisseurs of the art of film music. One of the top-ten blaxploitation soundtracks comes at us, not from Hollywood, but from out of the Golden Boot of Europe! The CD gives 20 tracks including five bonus cuts and exquisite packaging. Liner notes by John Bender, moderator of The European Film Score Society.
