Press Release from Beat:
Quando La Coppia Scoppia is a 1981 film directed by Steno and starring Enrico Montesano, Claude Brasseur and Dalila Di Lazzaro in a comedy in which our protagonist Enrico Granata (Montesano) is facing a matrimonial crisis as a third party (Brasseur) tries to steal his wife (Di Lazzaro).
A movie gifted with a score by Piero Umiliani, until now completely unreleased, one of the last composed by him and which denotes, once again, the Maestro’s proficiency in jazz orchestrations and provides rhythms for every situation, coloring the sparkling atmosphere of the movie.
We find various orchestrations of the main theme, cues with a sexy flavor for a handful of nocturnal sequences and two tracks reused from prior films scored by Umiliani, Johnny Moggi Quintet (1975) and News! News! News! (1979).
It’s a nice tribute to the great Tuscan Maestro that can’t be missing from his fans’ collections and which we are glad to offer in the DDJ series, namely dedicated to music of the 70s and 80s. The CD is presented in a transparent jewel case with a 12-page booklet, with mastering by Enrico De Gemini, graphic layout by Daniele De Gemini and liner notes by Marco Ferretti.
