Sol Madrid Lalo Schifrin MGM E/SE-4541 ST, 1965
Sol Madrid album cover

Sol Madrid featured Telly Savalas, David McCallum and Stella Stevens in an underworld thriller. The job of scoring the film went to 'Hollywood's fastest-rising musical talent - Lalo Schifrin'. The liner notes are correct. Schifrin gives the score a heavy jazz and latin flavour - there's a superb hard bop / free jazz number in 'The Burning Candle', and plenty of percussion throughout the LP. The best groovy track is the psychedelic guitar workout 'The Golden Trip'. A good album, entertaining and stimulating listening.

Overall Rating: 4
