Gato Barbieri's soundtrack for Bernardo Bertolucci's criminally underappreciated masterpiece is an equally impressive album that is as wonderful a solo work as it is a film soundtrack. It's a magical fusing of Latin, tango, and above all else, jazz, filled with beautiful symphonic arrangements and powerful saxophone solos performed by Barbieri himself. The 2004 reissue includes all the Grammy-winning album's original tracks as well as a 29-minute suite containing 28 cues personally selected by Barbieri. The real accomplishment here is that the music is just as emotional if you haven't seen the film as it is if you have. Certainly one of the finest soundtracks of all time. Highly recommended.

This is one of the best CD's I have ever listened to. For lovers of Jazz, Tango, and romantic music, this CD is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED. Listening to this CD conjures up so many memories of the past, the hurt, the happy times, the romantic love with an old flame which has been lost forever, nostalgia. An excellent CD to listen to when one is driving alone lost in thought. Please check out tracks 13,14,15. You will NOT be disappointed.

Once again, the "professional" reviewer at the top, Mr. McCulley, has his head inextricably wedged in a certain body cavity. I suppose originality in the cinema IS "quaintly compelling," when one compares "Last Tango in Paris" to today's timid, imbecilic fare. Maybe he should focus on the movie itself instead of the fact that characters in 1973 are wearing clothes made in...1973. Also comparing Barbieri's haunting and often wrenching score to Kenny G is a bit much. I remember my parents playing this album when I was a kid, and I knew even then that it meant something strange and exotic. It also helped to introduce me to jazz. Kudos Bertolucci, Schneider, Brando and Barbieri. They literally don't make 'em like this anymore.

1) Lays claim to being the greatest soundtrack ever recorded.
2) Generally undisputed, if not widely known, jazz masterpiece.
3) Gato's finest sustained studio effort on disk (though not as popular as his more mainstream pop efforts which became staple 70's muzak).
4) Deeply felt - emotionally charged - lavishly self-indulgent - uabashedly romantic, melodramatic - finally profound.
5) I personally find it far more affecting than the moving, but rather darkly existential film, which I have not seen since its initial run in the theaters long ago.
6) If you like Gato, or simply moody, introspective jazz fusion, from a medium to large ensemble - you won't go wrong here: one of the greatest.

This soundtrack from the movie Last Tango in Paris brings back memories of seeing Gato Barbieri at the Jazz Workshop in Boston.
His powerful, sexy, earthy command of the sax is delicious. Jazz Workshop in Boston is a relatively small venue allowing us to
sit, listen and watch up close and personal. I remember his glamorous wife all swathed in a dramatic white ensemble. Gato
Barbieri's soundtrack to Last Tango In Paris was my first introduction to his music, whenever he is playing just lose yourself
in the sound. Pleased to have his music in cd form.........replacing a scratchy old LP.

Gato gives his best on the sound track. The Last Tango theme runs through the CD. It is played in different ways over and over to deliver the flavor of Last Tango.
If you like tango music or the movie, I would recommend this.

The score for the pic Last Tango in Paris is very exciting.It contains strong elements of both latin & jazz with excellent tenor solos by the composer,Gato Barbieri.The title piece has a lilting theme and stays in your head.The rest of the score is variations on the main theme.The use of strings is very interesting and the variation in 6/8 in my mind is the best cut!
