The Music of Ennio Morricone
Ennio Morricone may be best known for his scores for Clint Eastwood "spaghetti westerns" but he's far more than an Italian Henry Mancini, as this 3-part survey by Fabio Roberti makes clear. Here Morricone emerges as a Class-A experimentalist with a canny sense of sound for all sorts of musicians. And if this show isn't hip enough for you, just try one of Fabio's Strength Through Failure ("The Failure of Rock," The Failure of Noise," "The Failure of Pop," etc.) shows on WFMU (and God bless).
