CD REVIEW - La Morte Cammina con i Tacchi Alti


La Morte Cammina con i Tacchi Alti
Music by Stelvio Cipriani
Digitmovies CDDM056 (Italy)
18 tracks 49:07 mins

For a 1971 Giallo thriller concerning a nightclub singer being stalked by a serial killer, Stelvio Cipriani's accompanying score is surprisingly light and tuneful and really a very nice listen. OK, so there are some tense, often timpani-lead, tracks to be heard, but the vast majority of the score is very much in the easy-listening lounge style. The catchy main theme "Fantasia Tragica" is first heard breezily on the opening track, with Nora Orlandi's wordless vocal and receives a number of variations throughout the subsequent tracks, like the slow and dreamy "Attimi di Tenerezza;" the uptempo, organ-lead "Night Club Girl (versione 2);" the waltz-like "Shopping;" the lounge piano "Dopa Cena;" the exotic "Sensualmente;" with its jungle drums and vocal; the twin-speed bossa nova styled "Felicita (bossa);" and the reprise of "Fantasia Tragica," with Orlandi whistling this time.
Other standout tracks include the seductive vocal of "Night Club Girl;" the light-hearted march "Il Comandante;" the laid-back flute, organ and piano of "Al Pub;" the easy "Sola in Casa" and the tense, lengthy, western-styled action cue "Rivelasioni di un Assassino."
All in all a delightful album, presented in fine stereo sound, and accompanied by the usual colourful booklet, with poster artwork and some gruesome stills from the film, as well as Claudio Fuiano and Pierluigi Valentino's notes.
