The music for Sangue Di Sbirro (directed by Alfonso Brescia, starring Jack Palance, George Eastman and Jenny Tamburi) was recorded on November 15th 1976 at the Orthophonic Recording Studio in Rome under the supervision of the supporting sound-engineer Sergio Marcotulli and for more than thirty years it remained unheard, but thanks to the perfect state of conservation of the reels containing the original sessions, it is now possible to pay homage to one of the most prolific composers of the Italian cinema.
The credits, as requested by the director, call back to mind the known Theme from Shaft, written by Isaac Hayes (who won the Oscar prize in 1972), giving voice to a kind of cover version, totally instrumental reread in a personal way.
Sangue Di Sbirro, rich of dramatic situations suggested by action, is framed around themes motivated by the bass and drums grooves, emphasized by an excellent wind section, on which solo instruments alternate each other in a free improvisation.
Alessandroni directs a jazz-funk combo enumerating some of the biggest exponents of Italian jazz;
in the insistent 6/8 of Sbirro in fuga it is possible to distinguish the illustrious Dino Piana at the trombone and Enrico Pieranunzi at the piano.
A homage to the sensuality put into music is the track Luxury where is the voice of Giulia De Mutiis that inspires the atmosphere Imbued with eroticism of a probable American night club in the 70's.
The famous whistle of Maestro Alessandroni in Tema di Susie is capable of recreating an absorbing sweet and intimate melody for a rendezvous or a farewell between lovers, but it can also slip in the rhythmic Philadelphia as an instrument.
The soundtrack is definitely at a fast tempo; besides we are in the funky golden age.
Dan Caputo is the main character of this movie film enumerated among the Italian detective films, though it does not have all of its typical features, and it is one of the very rare examples of this genre which is not set in one of our violent cities, but in Philadelphia, where our ex police sergeant lands in order to avenge his father's death, Joe Caputo, a harsh police officer killed, as claimed by the public opinion, after a settling of scores with Mallory, a boss of mafia.
While Mallory is sending in vain a bunch of men in order to kill Dan at his arriving at the airport, in a suggestive scene at the opening of the film which impresses also for the choice of the hockey masks worn by the terrorists, Lieutenant Sharp and Captain Jeffrey instruct him not to stay on the scene of the crime and not to use any weapons.
Also Susan, the woman who has been waiting for him for a long time, asks him not to put his life at risk, but everything is ineffective because Dan kills 30 people throughout the film with the help of gangster Duke, spots Captain Jeffrey as the murderer and Boss Mallory as the person behind the assassinations, sending all the evidences to Lieutenant Sharp.
The one who takes advantage of this story will exactly be ambiguous Duke, which will become the new unchallengeable boss.
