"I don't know of a more significant composer in the world today," Warren Beatty said of the great Ennio Morricone in 1994. To his credit, Beatty put his money where his mouth is in the '90s, hiring il Maestro to score Bugsy, Love Affair, and his bold 1998 tragicomic political parable, Bulworth. Though Morricone's music shared screen time with a muscular hodgepodge of modern rap, it's gratifyingly been given its own release here. The disc's two Bulworth suites offer a compact primer of Morricone's often disparate styles and how they evoke different facets of the film's story and characters. The first is a lush, melancholy orchestral exercise that elicits fond memories of another Morricone masterwork, Once Upon a Time in America (replete with that score's resident soprano, Edda Dell'Orso), while the second evokes darker emotions through the composer's more tonally challenging Eurocentrism. --Jerry McCulley
