SI PUO' ESSERE PIU' BASTARDI DELL'ISPETTORE CLIFF (300 EDITION) (CD)
Composed by: Riz Ortolani

Chris’ Soundtrack Corner proudly presents for the first time the complete soundtrack to Massimo Dallamano’s 1973 crime thriller, SI PUÒ ESSERE PIÙ BASTARDI DELL'ISPETTORE CLIFF? (which loosely translates as Can Anyone be More [of a] Bastard than Inspector Cliff?), also known by its American release title, MAFIA JUNCTION). The film features a powerful, jazz-based score composed by internationally-popular Italian film composer Riz Ortolani (1926-2014).

Ortolani may be best known internationally for his easy-listening and lounge-pop soundtracks whose gently lyrical scores were as popular in Europe as well as the USA, but in fact he was an articulate and versatile composer whose career since 1961 and its 225+ film scores spanned every genre. His provocative scores for poliziottesco (Italian police thriller) films were authentically drawn from big band and modern jazz traditions, and MAFIA JUNCTION is a thoroughly credible and entertaining score that catches all the right elements of the genre.

Riz Ortolani’s score saturates MAFIA JUNCTION with a persuasive, propulsive, and totally absorbing pop/jazz score that both defined the genre as well as the flashy, charismatic, self-confident character of Inspector Cliff. There is one primary theme that runs throughout the score, two minor themes that appear in association with subordinate characters or situations, and four standalone tracks associated with individual sequences but are not repeated.

This CD is the first release of Riz Ortolani’s MAFIA JUNCTION score in its entirety. Only two tracks have been issued previously and as a bonus track we’ve also included Ortolani’s full-length instrumental arrangement of the famously unattributed “Romance Anónimo” (Anonymous Romance), which is heard briefly in the film. The album is produced by Christian Riedrich and remastered by Stefan Betke. The CD is accompanied by a 12-page illustrated booklet designed by Aletta Heinsohn featuring detailed, exclusive notes on the film and its score by film music journalist Randall D. Larson, who deconstructs the score’s elements in detail.
