Ennio Morricone - Veruschka

Ennio Morricone - Veruschka
Label - Easy Tempo
Released - 1971
Style - Soundtrack, Jazz, Lounge, Dark & Groovy

(from MovieGrooves)
The soundtrack for the 1971 documentary "Veruschka, Poesia di una Donna" directed by Franco Rubartelli. Veruschka (real name Vera Lehndorff) was a real 60's/70's icon and in her heyday was an artist and, most famously, the worlds first supermodel. She also appeared in numerous movies including Blow Up, Salome and Coleur Chair.

(from Dusty Groove)
One of the most haunting Morricone soundtracks ever -- and one of the grooviest too! The album's a perfect blend of our two favorite styles of Morricone work -- that of the floating female vocal over a gentle groove, and the darker, tenser side of his music. The main "Verushka" theme is one of his most beautiful -- a variation of female vocals with a gentle edge, in the tradition of classic soundtracks like La Donna Invisible or Le Photo Proibite. This theme shifts from mood to mood over the course of the LP, occasionally giving way to some more atonal passages and other more jazz-based tunes.
