Gato Barbieri/LAST TANGO IN PARIS OST LP    $15.00
Catalog #: 05482887 1
New "old" stock. Italian pressing with "nude" cover. Although some of the smoky sax solos get a little uncomfortably close to 70s fusion cliche, his score to 1972's classic is an overall triumph. Suspenseful jazz, melancholy orchestration, and actual tangos fit the film's erotic longing. RIP GATO.
