Great that Ennio Morricone who was 79 yesterday is still doing film scores …congradulations !

I was fortunate to see him perform last winter in NYC. Man what a show. Yeah it wasn’t all spaghetti western material but it was first rate from start to finish.

[quote=“ENNIOO, post:39, topic:286”]Just curious what people think about Hugo Montenegro’s arrangements to the ’ Dollar’ tracks … ?

His arrangement of the main theme from The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, was a No.1 Hit here in the U.K. in the 60’s.[/quote]

HUGO MONTENEGRO 1968 THE GOOD THE BAD AND THE UGLY 4 WEEKS No 1 UK

This MONTENEGRO version FOR ME is the ABSOLUTE GREATEST and I say that as a fan
of Ennio Morricone and his wonderful artistic work.

Montenegro’s version is MELODIC , EVOCATIVE , POP GREAT & UNBEATABLE 4 me.

Looks like Morricone is doing a concert …in Brazil I think ???.

Here is a famous Morricone western theme featuring a; kettle, alarm clock and shaver amongst other things:

One of my soundtrack friends has just sent me C.D’s of the concert Morricone performed in Belfast last week, and have to say Morricone is still on top form.

Themes included are; The Sicilian Clan, Love Circle, the last four Leone directed films, The Mission and many more!

I mentioned in another thread that Christopher Frayling had done an interview with Morricone to be aired on BBC Radio 4 soon and that I’d pass on details when I got them. Well, It was on yesterday and I missed it >:(
However, thanks to the world of modern technology we now live in the BBC has a ‘listen again’ option for most stuff they broadcast. So here’s the link:

Wasn’t sure if this has been discussed anywhere before, but is there a version of Il triello with Clint’s gunshot at the end? Everytime I listen to it I always anticipate hearing Clint’s gun going off.

Has anyone had a chance to see this?

New article

Morricone is looking good for his age.

I wonder when the Giuseppe Tornatore doc on Morricone is coming out? I feel like we haven’t heard much in a while… Given the extent of their collaboration over so many years and Tornatore’s talent, I’m expecting it to be amazing.
