Info :
Now it may safely be said that the heritage of Soviet cinematography accounts for dozens of movies which are marked not only by distinguished decisions of stage direction, unique theatrical and actory style, but also by musical decisions which can be referred to the worldwide cultural heritage. By the way, this tradition was born in USSR in 20-30s of XX century when the production of films with jazz arrangements began in Soviet Russia. The total volume of accumulated material is amazingly great and diverse. For example, American and European famous soundtracks were re-issued and sampled many times. In our country such a work wasn't fulfilled, therefore now the primary task for development of this trend is to create a catalogue of Soviet films and soundtracks which afterwards will be issued in the form of albums and compilations on vinyl disks, CD or, may be, in the form of reworks. Several enthusiasts already began the search for rarities. If you strike 'Soviet jazz-funk films' in the search bar on www.youtube.com, you'll find many musical fragments. A few recordings were issued on vinyl, however all original recordings exist and are kept in record offices and funds of Russian Federation, CIS countries and Baltic States. Another important task is to decide upon a problem of royalty, both for recordings themselves and for fragments and samples that are used, because it can became a sufficiently wide room for manoeuvre for contemporary artists.
