It stars John Cassavetes as Mario, a professional hitman who takes a young, ambitious partner named Enrico Nikos Kourkoulos. With Mario out of the picture Enrico is unleashed on the city, leaving a trail of deaths behind him. To stop him, Mario teams up with a prison commissioner Gabriele Ferzetti to stop him. It stars John Cassavetes, Britt Ekland, Peter Falk, and Gabriele Ferzetti and tells the story of the titular McCain, a paroled gangster who plans to rob a Las Vegas casino with the help of his son, but soon finds himself caught in the middle of a bitter and violent turf war between members of the West Coast and East Coast mafiosi.
I love it, but others may find it profoundly ridiculous, and the three different versions of it on the soundtrack may be a little too much. The rest of the score is surprisingly low-key, often comprising smooth jazz instrumentals arranged in a lush orchestral style that occasionally reminds me of s John Barry or Henry Mancini.
The release by Dagored is a little more concise and digestible, and there is also a double-CD by Intermezzo Media which combines this score with music from the giallo La Donna Invisibile.

Frank is a gunslinger, who has just killed an entire family so that he and his gang can take over the land and exploit the railroad, which is intended to be built nearby.
Meanwhile, Harmonica has a vendetta against Frank that goes back years, and intends to exact revenge in any way he can.
Leone had Morricone compose the score before shooting started, and played the music in the background for the actors on set to inspire them — and What an inspiration that must have been!
The score is based around four main themes for the four main characters, as well as an overarching theme for the film as a whole, and several spectacular one-off set pieces that underscore the violence and betrayal at the heart of the story.
The harmonica performances bookend a remarkable middle section for choir and orchestra. The score has, naturally, been released dozens and dozens of times over the years, on alums of varying length and varying sound quality. Il Grande Massacro , 4. Arrivo Alla Stazione , 5.

But I'm pretty sure it's amazing,.
No one likes to wake up and have several private messages in his WhatsApp chat that tell you one of your biggest idols just passed away. That said, I was really touched by the fact that so many of my friends seemed to be emotionally very invested in the maestro's death. Rest in Peace. Meanwhile, I have found the words to express my happiness about the fact that he had the chance to reach that impressive age, that he aged and died with dignity and that he was even able to say goodbye to everyone who was important to him and everyone he was important to.
I also want to say that Hans Zimmer absolutely nailed it by saying that "Ennio was an icon and icons just don't go away"! I heard this on TV. My heart skipped a beat because they started with something like "Famous film composer I will close the day with this elephantine listing of Morricone's work - and that's only his film and tv stuff, not counting stage, advertising and classical works.
His musical genius is one thing, but genius doesn't come often with such eye-popping productivity. So one thing to remember is that the endless tributes to his Leone work or selected american scores, i. Silver Ribbon Award for Best Score. Vittorio Taviani. A sad day, and of course this ghastly year had to claim one of the truly Greats. It's difficult to corral my thoughts into a coherent fashion, so I'll just post one of my favourite pieces by Ennio Morricone:.
A certain quote from Morricone has fascinated me ever since I came across it. In a course by Italian musicologist Sergio Miceli in which Morricone took part what a dream that surely was!
I was very saddened to hear of Ennio Morricone's passing this morning. He was truly one of the great composers of the last sixty years or so and not just film composers with a seemingly bottomless well of inspiration and genius from which to draw. I had the good fortune to see him conduct his music in concert six or seven times in London, including his first UK concert at the Barbican in This is truly sad.
My prayers go out to his family. I was not familiar with his body of work, but I remember The Mission. A powerful film with a powerful score. Maestro Ennio Morricone. May you be welcomed into Heaven with this:.
Look at them, our two Granddads! Listening to one of my favourite Morricone albums The Demons of St Petersburg from Not exactly an obvious choice as not many people know this work. But I fell in love from my first listen. The entire score is lovely but the somewhat final track is a beauty. I'm sorry Grant him eternal rest, Lord. May Your Perpetual Light shine upon him. Besides "serious" concert works and songs, Morricone's ouevre includes an unmatched film scores. In , Morricone single-handedly defined the sound of the Spaghetti Western with his then unique but afterwards much copied score for "A Fistful of Dollars".
While that trilogy culminating in "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly"'s iconic "The Ecstasy of Gold" together with "Once Upon a Time in the West" with its famous blend of harmonica and electric guitar contains enough hits to make him a household name, Morricone was much too prolific to by typecast to just a few select genres.
He had the fortune of having close collaborations with directors like De Palma and most notably Leone and Tornatore, who understood what he could bring to their films and trusted him to carry pivotal scenes in the films just with his music. There are numerous instances in the Leone films where his music provides humourous musical punctuation!
A friend and collaborator, his talent was inestimable. I will miss him! You can post now and register later. If you have an account, sign in now to post with your account. Paste as plain text instead. Only 75 emoji are allowed. Display as a link instead.

Una Pistola per Ringo was the second significant spaghetti western scored by Ennio Morricone, and was intended to capitalize on the success of A Fistful of Dollars the previous year. Directed by Duccio Tessari, it stars Giuliano Gemma using the Anglicized name Montgomery Wood as Angel Face Ringo, an ex-convict gunfighter who is hired to infiltrate a ranch overrun by Mexican bandits led by the ruthless Sancho Fernando Sancho , who have holed up there after a bank robbery gone wrong.
Again, considering its status as a classic spaghetti western, the score for Una Pistola per Ringo has been released numerous times over the years.

In fact, many of the films more horrific scenes are scored with organ music, placing a pseudo-religious slant to the proceedings, and a level of creepy, moody uneasiness.
