Italian cinema and 1970s jazz

Free dangerous armed men - Enrico Pieranunzi and Gianfranco Plenizio

Gianfranco Plenizio: orchestral conduction/Enrico Pieranunzi: piano

In the mid-seventies, in addition to collaborating as a studio man with Maestri such as Ennio Morricone, Armando Trovajoli and others, Enrico Pieranunzi records numerous soundtracks, also having the opportunity to write film music together with guitarist Silvano Chimenti and drummer Vincenzo Restuccia. The three musicians form the group “Pulsar Music Ltd", which composes and records the soundtracks of "The policewoman makes a career", "Milano Violenta", "TaxiGirl" and "The girl au pair". Furthermore, in 1976, in collaboration with Maestro Gianfranco Plenizio, the Roman pianist composed the soundtrack of the film "Liberi,Armati,Dangerous" (played among others by Thomas Milian).

Enrico Pieranunzi thus describes that musical page of his ten-year career - "Fu un’esperienza interessante e, come si può sentire, anche divertente, dato il genere a cui i film appartenevano. Molte di queste musiche dopo un lungo periodo di oblio sono tornate in auge in vari paesi come brani di lounge music”.∗
