From the recording Europa
One of the greatest melodies made famous by Gato Barbieri's emotional rendition with his fiery tenor sax. I wanted to redraw the melody in a different portrait, a musical genre called Spy Music. What's a visit to retro cocktail land without a stop off in spyville.
Whether it was James Bond as 007 or the Napoleon Solo in The Man From U.N.C.L.E., the music that drove these cinematic icons had a style of it's own. These characters and shows/films in the 60's were the blueprint for the hip cosmopolitan bachelor and the soundtrack for the lifestyle. Don't you remember, or did I just date myself?
