Description:
Personnel: Edda Dell'Orso (vocals). Ensemble: Gruppo di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza. The "giallo" genre of film is a certain kind of Italian thriller, and although it's not the sort of thing that Ennio Morricone is most known for scoring, he did do quite a few soundtracks for giallo movies. The 73-minute Morricone Giallo CD compilation has 22 excerpts from almost a dozen such soundtracks, all but three of the cuts taken from 1970-1972 movies (with one from a 1975 film and a couple from a 1983 film). As the liner notes point out, though the giallo soundtracks included a lot of bossa nova and Euro-lounge type sounds, this particular disc "focuses on the darker cues that Morricone spattered throughout his giallo soundtracks." So these recordings are very light on melodies and motifs, and instead heavy on noirish suspense and ambience. Morricone's work is so wide-ranging and versatile that it's impossible to say what a "typical" or "characteristic" effort by the composer is, but this collection is, perhaps, some of his more atypical stuff, if such a thing exists. There's little to hum or engage the listener tune-wise; the emphasis is on spooky orchestral swells, rattles, clattering drum patterns, occasional shivering gasps, ominous throbs and sprinkles of notes, atonal near free jazz, discordant bell-like tones, and such. It's usually not out-and-out horror movie material, but certainly maximizes edgy aural atmospherics that don't let you relax or let down your guard. As such, it's not recommended for the usual Morricone listener (again, if there is such a thing); it's more challenging, less entertaining, and less eclectic than the vast majority of Morricone compilations on the market. For those serious fans of the composer looking to investigate one of the less celebrated corners of his oeuvre, however, it's worthwhile and well assembled, though the liner notes are heavier on details of the actual movie plots than their scores. ~ Richie Unterberger
