Released in 1972, Bernardo Bertolucci's Last Tango in Paris is one of the most popular erotic drama movies ever made, and has always been subject to controversy and rejection; great works of art are used to that, one might say, and maybe it's not a coincidence that the film is still discussed a lot today. The realization of the film's soundtrack was assigned to Gato Barbieri, a saxophonist born in Argentine who used to frequent the Roman jazz scene already in the '60s. When it came to composing the music of Last Tango, Barbieri was already an established musician, but he called back some of the musicians with whom he had previously played in Rome, creating a 9-element enlarged ensemble; arrangements for the accompanying symphony orchestra had been made by another jazz giant, Oliver Nelson. The union between Barbieri's music and Bertolucci's visions was one of the many perfect marriages that made history in the cinema and soundtrack fields. Three main ingredients are blended among the grooves of this memorable score: the tango melodies - of course, the melancholy of the orchestra string instruments and the erotic tension generated by Gato Barbieri's saxophone, thanks to his unique style that could combine energy and feeling like few others in the world.
