Piero Piccioni - CADAVERI ECCELLENTI
Reissue of Piero Piccioni's soundtrack for Cadaveri Eccellenti, originally released in 1976. A superb soundtrack composed for Francesco Rosi's film Cadaveri Eccellenti, based on the novel Il Trattato by Leonardo Sciascia. A portrait of Italy during the infamous Years of Lead ("Anni di Piombo"), Cadaveri Eccellenti, presented in 1976 at the Cannes Film Festival, caused an outcry for the inconvenient issues addressed. Jazz and funky tunes are mixed here with a big orchestra-style peculiar of the best compositions by the maestro Piero Piccioni. This album is an enjoyable journey into dark and light atmospheres. This marks the first time the complete version has appeared on vinyl.
