Thanks for the link Gorbadoc I'm not into most of the comedy scores myself but some of them have great music it is always worth looking for samples. Sometimes it is not always easy to find and hear score samples in some of the films luckily many of these titles turn up as digital downloads on Amazon or on I tunes.
Other News SAE have relisted UN DOLLARO BUCATO (LIMITED REISSUE) Superb score and expansion by Ferrio not to be missed I picked this one up first time already owned the older triple CAM cd Un Dollaro Bucato/ Sentenza Di Morte/ Vivi O Preferibilmente Morti.
The last score on that old cam cd is a comedy Vivi O Preferibilmente my least favorite Ferrio score I gave the Digitmovies expanded disc a miss, Hopefully they will expand Sentenza Di Morte next possible my favorite Ferrio western.
The jazz of Blue Nude shares the gritty backstreets of New York with some funk and country digressions, antithetical genres that the Maestro proficiently joins into the same concept. A sample of this unique contamination are the two cues 'Blue Nude' and 'Life Goes On,' sung by the Rome-adopted New York vocalist Charles William Cannon. Due to the bankruptcy of the production company Euro International, the movie was released in only a few theaters in Italy and was pulled shortly thereafter, a circumstance that contributed to the mystery that still surrounds the film today. Finally, after more than thirty years, the score for Blue Nude is finally released thanks to Beat Records. It's another important chapter in the art of Piero Umiliani, the most versatile of our composers and the one who is known by fans everywhere simply as 'The Maestro.' (Francesco Argento)
Maybe it was pulled due to the erotic asphyxiation suggestion ala the cover art.
After an initial run through, I thoroughly recommend BLUE NUDE if you are partial to New York jazz styles reflecting the city in '77. Not quite as "seedy, gutter trash, distopia" Herrmann worked out in TAXI however it's a marvellous effort showcasing Umiliani's jazz talent working with the main theme. I'm not overly keen on the sung numbers, a country like affair.
