Alejandro Jodorowsky, Don Cherry, and Ronald Frangipane: The Holy Mountain Soundtrack


Alejandro Jodorowsky, Don Cherry, and Ronald Frangipane: The Holy Mountain Original Soundtrack
Released: 1973 (ABKCO Records)

So this soundtrack (at least to my knowledge) wasn’t really released in 1973. Jodorowsky’s unique film, The Holy Mountain, was and has been a cult classic since. Working with jazz luminary Don Cherry (who played with Ornette Coleman) and producer/professor/musician Ronald Frangipane, Jodorowsky’s score for The Holy Mountain could be classified as experimental music today. If you haven’t seen the film you should; if you have you should possess this soundtrack.

Once somebody said to me, “there are films and then there’s The Holy Mountain.” Fuck them. While I love The Holy Mountain (and believe it’s a unique film that nobody has duplicated since) it’s not a format killing piece. However, I do believe it’s an important piece of cinematic history and its score stands quite well on its own.

Here is probably my favorite piece from The Holy Mountain’s soundtrack

Here is my second favorite piece from The Holy Mountain’s soundtrack
