David Shire's wonderful score to The Conversation – a subtle mix of jazz and darker sounds that's one of the best things about this incredible film! Shire's definitely one of the cooler cats of American film scoring of the 70s – and with a groundbreaking project like this, he really shows his stuff – especially given that he plays these haunting piano solos himself throughout most of the score – really beautiful elliptical lines that are a great revelation, and make us like Shire even more! There's also a jazz combo in the film – a group that includes Pete Jolly on piano, Don Menza on tenor, and Conte Candoli on trumpet – and titles include "Theme From The Conversation", "Dream Sequence", "Plumbing Problem", "Finale & End Credits", "The End Of The Day", and "Harry Carried".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Io La Conoscevo Bene
Beat (Italy), 1965. New Copy
Wonderful wonderful stuff – exactly the kind of mod soundtrack we've really come to love from the legendary Piero Piccioni! The music's a very cool blend of jazz and more 60s-styled rhythms – including some groovers in the "jerk" or "shake" modes – all served ... CD
La Moglie Giovane
Beat (Italy), 1974. New Copy
A warm and sexy score from Stelvio Cipriani – penned with a beautiful blend of woodwinds, keyboards, and sweet bossa-styled grooves! There's a bit more fullness here than in some of Cipriani's more erotic work, and a bit more groove too – although most of the music moves at a ... CD
I Magliari
Beat (Italy), 1959. New Copy
An excellent jazz soundtrack from Piero Piccioni – captured at a great early point in his film career, when he was still mixing in lots of elements from his work in jazz as well! The style here echoes some of the French jazz soundtracks of the new wave – and the tunes often sport ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1976. New Copy
A female doctor in a military hospital – with all the goofy results you could expect from an Italian sex comedy! Piero Umiliani's music definitely matches the mood of the piece – plenty playful at most points, with styles that move between clever themes, odd melodies, and some sweeter, ... CD
Sesso Nero
Beat (Italy), 1980. New Copy
A sweetly sexy set from the great Nico Fidenco – easily one of the most reliable sources for porno sounds in the 70s! The album's got a slinky feel that really matches its cover image, and the film's tale of sex in an exotic locale – backed with music from Fidenco that's heavy on ... CD
Roma Violenta
Beat (Italy), 1975. New Copy
One of the greatest Italian crime soundtracks of all time – a totally groovy little record that's done in a style that's quite different than American crime scores of the time, but still completely wonderful! Most of the instrumentation here is relatively spare – almost a small combo ... CD
Porno Holocaust
Beat (Italy), 1980. New Copy
Ouch – what a cover! The image is so graphic, it makes the grooves on the record sound tame by comparison! Yet given that the soundtrack's done by Nico Fidenco – well-known for his sexy work of the 70s – there's plenty of great stuff going on here – a mix of Italian and ... CD
Sambatek
Far Out (UK), 2013. New Copy
Brazilian percussion mixed with 21st Century sounds – all served up sublimely in the hands of Kirk Degiorgio – one of the few artists we could ever expect to get a project like this just right! The album follows nicely off Kirk's previous collaboration with Azymuth – but has an ... CD
