1 - PUCCINI, SERGIO - ROMERIAS - (CD) 
ALEPH


This is the world premiere recording of "Romerian," a Suite for solo guitar in nine movements written by Lalo Schifrin. Mr. Schifrin said about his work: "'Romerias' in Spanish means carnivals or big parties where there is a display of popular arts, food and drinks. 'Romerias' for solo guitar is a Suite that reflects that feeling of celebration. It explores the different possibilities of this great instrument within the parameters of classical, poplar, and folk elements. At the same time, it also brings out the various potentialities of the guitar technique.'" The CD also contains other works by various composers, many written specifically for Sergio Puccini.

4 - SCHIFRIN, LALO - BULLIT - (CD) 
ALEPH


For "Bullitt", Lalo's musical creation perfectly captures San Francisco then and now. The blasts of brass that blow like steel fireballs through the blass canyons, the piano-driven riffs of cool melancholy, the gentler tones of jazzy laid-back imtimacy that suggests not just the startling scenic wonders of the Golden Gate and the ice-blue of the bay, but the ragged, glorious chaos of the bertiginous hills and the claustrophobic cluster of periolously perches people and homes. The memorable car chase in "Buttltt" is musically set-up but the chase itself is unscored. The superb cue "Shifting Gears" lays the groundwork brilliantly for the chase to begin, and the cue ends with stuntman Bill Hickman, as the driver of the other vehicle, clicking his eat belt into place... - Nick Redman

7 - SCHIFRIN, LALO - CAVEMAN - (CD) 
ALEPH


The scene where mankind invented music is a highlight, with Ringo Starr and cast using gourds, sticks, bones, stones and hollow logs. This became the movie's signature music. Add to this the lumbering motif for the slow-moving dinosaurs.the pastoral interludes and music of high jeopardy that occur throughout...a wonderful parody of silent-movie chase music...and a heartfelt romantic theme...a score with style and grace. "It's catch melody, clever use of percussion and above all sense of fun, were perfect for the movie's signature music. ...Schifrin's Stone Age score turns out to be a surprisingly sophisticated and satisfying orchestral experience." - Jon Burlingame, "Variety"

9 - SCHIFRIN, LALO - COOL HAND LUKE - (CD) 
ALEPH


The idea of mixing blue grass" and symphonic music in a fraceful way was a challenge, but also an opportunity for a wonderful artistic experience. I should mention some of the great musicians who contributed to enhance the different scenes: Ray Brown on bass, Howard Roberts and Tommy Tedesco on guitars, and Tom Morgan on harmonica. It is unfair not to mention eeryone, but I do remember each one of them who added their artistry and professionalism to the excitement." - Lalo Schifrin

10 - SCHIFRIN, LALO - DEAD POOL; THE ORIGINAL - (CD) 
ALEPH


There is nothing else quite like Lalo's exquisite ability to create swirling malevolent chaos inside a madman's head, and the fraying, twining tendrils of sonic warpage are on full display here, flitting ghost-like through "The Dead Pool's" netherworld. There is action-fare aplenty, too, and Lalo is positively energized by having the freedom to lay an aural carpet beneath a number of gunplay-filled dramatics, resulting in a lean, stripped, economical 35 minutes or so of score in a 910minute movie. As many of the cues are of limited duration, for the purposes of this CD's playability they have been edited into longer "suites," each representing a chronological section of the film Every note is herein contained, including some small sections of "The Car" that were deleted from the final release prints. Notable highlights include "Time To Get Up," "The Rules," "The Last Autograph," "Kidnap and Rescue," and last but not least, "The Pier, the Bridge and the City," which closes the show with one of the loveliest instrumental renditions of Harry Callahan's melancholy "love" theme, figuratively lowering the curtain on one of the most popular, celebrated, and beloved movie franchises in contemporary cinema. - Nick Redman

11 - SCHIFRIN, LALO - DIRTY HARRY - (CD) 
ALEPH


This CD represents "Dirty Harry's" premiere release, complete with the original sessions masters remixed for stereo. Schifrin achieved an action score that would come to be defined as the quintessential work in seventies action cinema. Urban jazz-funk formed the basis, with a driving, percussion-based jazz ensemble, and a ghostly chorale for the "Scorpio" scenes. All of the music originally recorded for the film is here. A true collector's item.

ALEPH


Lalo Schifrin's thrilling score to "The Eagle Has Landed" - a classic World War II film starring Michael Caine, Donald Sutherland, and Robert Duvall - reflects the obsession, danger, and growing urgency of the Nazi plot to kidnap Winston Churchill. The suspense grows with the repeated leitmotif stated by cymbalom, drums, strongs, and finally the entire orchestra as it follows the twists and turns of the dramatic action of the flm.

13 - SCHIFRIN, LALO - ENTER THE DRAGON; EXTENDED VERSION - (CD) 
ALEPH


Enter the Dragon was the first martial arts film produced by Americans and would be actor Bruce Lee's final film. Both the film and Schifrin's score have earned cult followings in the 40 years since the initial release. The film was added to the National Film Registry in 2004. Kung Fu culture has proven to be a major influence on the development of hiphop culture, movies and music - and both the film and Lalo's score are still recognized as major influencers. Even as recently as 2013, the group Blue Scholars released a song called "Lalo Schifrin", boasting the lyric "I compose fight misic like Lalo Schifrin/Me and Bruce Lee, not so different." Lee told Lalo that there was a 2,000-year tradition in martial arts," Schifrin described his first meeting with the film's star Bruce Lee. "He had to learn all of the rules in order to break them. Right away, I found we had that in common: I studies classical music, centuries of European classical tradition, rules and regulation, things that you can and cannot do. And then we break all the rules."

15 - SCHIFRIN, LALO - FILM CLASSICS - (CD) 
ALEPH


This live recording athe the Opera de Marseille on December 8, 1995 is a celebration of some of the beautiful songs and some of the most memorable music that have been enhancing our own adventures in the mirror of the movie screen. On this journey we feel the dangers that threaten our heroes, we fall in love one hundred times, we sing, we laugh, we cry and finally we triumph. Who could have predicted one hundred years ago that the Lumiere Brothers' invention - they called it animated photography - was going to become the collective dream of the 20th century? As we open the movie theatre doors and filmmakers' visions emerge from the shadows, infinite layers of musical sounds are interwoven withe the images on screen. And thanks to the music, later on, the illusion transforms itself into a memory of haunting melodies, infectious rhythms and seductive sounds.

16 - SCHIFRIN, LALO - GILLESPINIA - (CD) 
ALEPH


As soon as I had joined Dizzy Gillespie's band, he said, "Why don't you write something for us?" His words triggered my imigination, and the ideas started to flow. Diz had been one of my greatest inspirations (still is), and the composition process was intense and exhilarating. A few days later, I took the sketches of "Gillespiana" to his home and played them on the piano. When I finished. he asked me "How are you going to orchestrate this work?" I replied "I hear a jazz quintet...plus a brass band." Diz immediately called Norman Granz who was at that time the head of Verve Records. With the telephone in his hand he asked me how long it would take to arrange it. "Three weeks," was my response. He told Norman, "Book a studio a month from now." And this is how "Gillespiana" was born...

18 - SCHIFRIN, LALO - INS AND OUTS AND LALO LIVE A - (CD) 
ALEPH


Lalo Schifrin has combined the results of two separate quintet recordings to remind his listeners that before the many film and tv scores, his masterminding of "Jazz Meets the Symphon" series, and his many classical works, he was and always has been a jazz pianist. The moods and flavors show the wide range that we have come to expect from Schifrin's work, both in playing and composing, and the musicians surrounding him are among the world's finest jazz players. "Ins and Outs" was recorded in Hollywood in 1982, and "Lalo Live at the Blue Note" was recorded twenty years later at the legendary club in New York. All the influences are heard in this album - the Latin rhythms, the years he spent with Gillespie, and some work from his years as a film composer.

19 - SCHIFRIN, LALO - INTERSECTIONS ;JAZZ MEETS THE SYMPHONY 5 - (CD) 
ALEPH


If the title track is arguably the album's brightest gem, (Donna's Dream) runs it close, being the most ambitious as well as the longest. All Schifrin's wares are on display, from delicate nuance to roaring power, and indeed on one level the piece is a microcosm of the album as a whole. The appeal is immediate (not least the profusion of solos) yet this is the music that demands and replays - close and repeated listening, such is its density of texture, rhythmic virtuosity and emotional palette. - Richard Palmer

20 - SCHIFRIN, LALO - JAZZ GOES TO HOLLYWOOD - (CD) 
ALEPH


The twentieth century gave birth to two art forms: cinema and jazz. The masses embraced them as new manifestations of the collective memory and universal expression. Different sounds and images appeared and new technologies made their diffusion possible. Jazz musicians created not only their own music, but improvised on popular, classical, or religious themes, transforming them into their own artistic needs. The special magic of screenwriters contributed to the translation of novels, plays, and folk stories into the film medium. - Lalo Schifrin

24 - SCHIFRIN, LALO - LALO SCHIFRIN AND FRIENDS - (CD) 
ALEPH


So it is as appropriate as it is welcome that this latest Aleph issue focuses on Schifrin, the pianist, as much as Schifrin, the composer. He is joined by James morrison, equally prodigious on trumpet and trombone, and tenorist James Moody, who was a leading light in Dizzy Gillespie's matchless 1940's Big Band and sho subsequently worked with the trumpeter on many other occasions. Then there's Dennis Budimir on guitar, a renowned Los Angles musician with a warm supple tone reminiscent of Wes Montgomery: he cooks simmeringly while also showing exquisite touch and taste on ballads. Bassist Brian Bromberg, also a resident of LA, has worked with Schifrin and Morrison on a newber o club dates; a virtuoso with a huge sound and excellent time, he is as complelling in solo as he is when anchoring the rhythm section. And Peruvian percussionist Alex Acuna is a widely experienced musician who has lovely hands, the crispest articulation and is always sensitive to his confreres' needs and space. Of the nine selections, six are Schifrin tunes. As one would expect, they testify to the rich variety of his writer's palette and range of mood; as I hope you would now also expect, they equally enshrine the sumptuous quality of his pianism. - Richard Palmer

25 - SCHIFRIN, LALO - LALO SCHIFRIN CONDUCTS STRAVINSKY, SCHIFRIN AND RAVEL - (CD) 
ALEPH


As a musician of European ancestry born in Latin America, I became fascinated a few years ago by the discovery that a composer like Antonio Vavaldi had written an opera about the Aztec emperor Montezuma. When in January 1986, virtuoso Gary Karr commissioned me to wrtie a piece for the double bass and orchestra, he asked me to write something lyrical. "I would like to make the instrument sing," he said. Immediately I decided to write a concerto in the shape f an opera, where the double bass would be the protagonist (basso). Obviously this "opera" did not have a story but the Montezuma/Vivaldi connection triggered an imiginary musical diom based on neobaroque and Indo-American element. I was compelled by the idea of alternating colorful scenes ("dances," "choruses") with introspective "aria, recitativos, and duets." However, the challenge was to give an internal unity to the many elements and at the same time create a howcase for the solo instrument. Like Europeans exploring terra incognita, I sailed through the strings of the bass. Gary Karr himself helped me too with a catalogue of possible extensions, figurations, bowing technique and articulations which I proceeded to integate into the work. I am almost certain that the double bass does not portray the characters of either Montezuma or Vivaldi, but rather the subjective impressions of a modern observer who attempts to interpret the interdependence of particular historical events and searches his own soul while reviewing parades of orchestral timbers joining their rhythms and "singing" along with their melodic contours. - Lalo Schifrin

28 - SCHIFRIN, LALO - LES FELINS (JOY HOUSE) - (CD) 
ALEPH


This soundtrack was written in 1963, and it is stylistically an indication of scores to come: "Bullitt," "Dirty Harry, " and even some of the avant-garde work heard in later pieces. The jazz roots are here, recorded by the top jazz musicians in Paris, mixed with a symphony orchestra, the occasional latin flavor: in other words, things to come. One of the main themes from the movie was recorded by the great jazz organist, Jimmy Smith, and became a very big hit for him ("The Cat"). Schifrin said of this score, "If you compare my film career to a house, "Les Felins" is it's foundation

The piece, and concert, is a salute to David Shifrin - former Artistic Director of Chamber Music Society of the Lincoln Center, a clarinestist of unmatched renown, and a distant cousin of Schifrin's.
