Riz Ortolani

Confessione di un commissario di Polizia... (7")

Label: Four Flies

Format: 7"

Genre: Library/Soundtracks

Preorder: June 7"


For the first time on 7’’, the two grooviest tracks from the soundtrack composed by Riz Ortolani for “Confessione di un commissario di polizia al procuratore della Repubblica” (aka, “Confessions of a Police Captain”), the renowned 1971 crime drama by Damiano Damiani, starring Franco Nero at the peak of his career. On Side A, “Serena e Lomunno” is a jazzy spell performed by an exceptional quartet - unfortunately uncredited - consisting of bass, electric guitar, drums, and piano. On Side B, the quartet reduces to a trio (sacrificing the piano) to give life to “Il ricordo di Serena,” without losing any of the rhythmic essence infused in the previous track.

In both cases, the pieces’ structure is entirely supported by the perfect interplay of bass and drums, with particularly striking and sharp timbres, complemented by electric guitar and piano with their refined phrasings. The result? A succession of irresistible and elegant jazz-funk breaks, practically tailor-made for sampling. This is an essential addition to the series of 45s that Four Flies is dedicating to the best Italian golden age soundtrack and library productions. A must-have for any serious Italian sound digger!
