Decimo - Theme From Shaft (Disco Version) / The Last World 1978

 Info

Link

* Espectacular version del famoso track escrito por Isaac Hayes,toda una orquestación completa y también se suma el sonido que algunos conocemos como.... ''Sleaze Disco'',''The Last world'' un pequeño ''Electro disco'' aparentemente influenciada en clásico de Richard Strauss y un toque del estilo ''I feel love'' de Donna summer si mis oidos no me engáñan,no es el único single que grabó el señor Umberto Decimo,existe otro pequeño single totalmente desconocido,sería el lado B del single para ser especificos,en este single se encuentra un track llamado ''Capitan Robot'' escrita por Umberto Decimo en 1979 para un programa Italiano llamado ''Noi Supereroi'' el track es mucho mas electronico como la cancion ''The Last World'' que describí anteriormente,además de acompañar en algunos proyectos al saxofonista Gil Ventura y al grupo ''Daniel Sentacruz Ensemble''.

Arranged - Umberto Decimo
