Meet Massimo Tutti, Our Man In The Caribbean

TDRF-01 Meet Massimo Tutti (di Mare), Our Man In The Caribbean, code name X-077. A man who looks at life mostly through shades, preferably in combination with a Cuban cigar and a glass of dark rum.

Cold War In The Tropics

TDRF-04  Señor Tutti (X-077) takes a domestic chopper flight in Cuba to join his compañeros of the revolución in order to prevent an uprise on the island. Meanwhile some authorities suspect X-077 of being a double agent.

30 Degrees Murder

TDRF-05 ‘Dubful’ times for Massimo Tutti (X-077) while he heads to Jamaica to investigate the circumstances of a murdered informer, during a Carnival parade near the harbour of Port Esquivel. A kill under the tropical sun of 30 degrees Celsius which leads to a chain reaction full of violence, crime and more murder. Massimo attends a funeral and visits the wife of a deceased. Meanwhile, detective Lex Barker goes to inspect a crimescene in the harbour where he get’s ambushed. Luckily he manages to escape the explosive situation and is still able to bring out report to Tutti.

Dry Martinis and Wet Bikinis

TDRF-06  Dive into the pool with Massimo and drink a well-deserved ‘dry Martini’ at the cocktail bar afterwards at his residence in The Caribbean. With it’s tropical mixture of groovy cocktail spy lounge and Latin percussion it’s ‘instant staycation’ where ever you are. Influences which recall the space age pop of ‘The King of Lounge’, Juan Garcia Esquivel and the jazzy guitar vibes of Wes Montgomery. Eventually it turns into a filmish ‘feel-good’ setting in which you expect Swimming Queen Ester Williams to show up any time.
