Cinema A Mano Armata
Distributed titles: Curated releases, and Exclusive color-ways from other great soundtrack releases from around the world.
There are two categories of artist: the ones who follow trends and show an ability to integrate them and the ones who create trends; Franco Micalizzi is one of the latter. Composer, arranger and orchestra leader, Micalizzi has contributed more than anyone else in Italy to the birth and formation of what has come to be known as pulp music.
This LP is a summary of the musical soundtrack cult of the 70s reimagined with great new arrangements written by the maestro for his group, The Big Bubbling Band. La Banda Del Gobbo – Italia a Mano Armata – Napoli Violenta – Il Cinico, L’infame, Il Violento and many more, concluding with trinity drawn from Lo Chiamavano Trinita’ and reclaimed by Quentin Tarantino in Django Unchained.
The strongest abilities of Franco Micalizzi? An amazing band, spacey grooves, a bit of jazz atmosphere, the timeless brass-crescendo of Micalizzi, the charm of 70’s funk and… the untameable talent of the maestro!
