Product Description

Receiving an Honorary Oscar® at the 79th Annual Academy Awards® for his lifetime achievement, composer Ennio Morricone has made a monumental contribution to more than 500 indelible film and television scores including "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly," "The Mission," "Once Upon a Time in America," "The Untouchables," "Cinema Paradiso" and others. To celebrate Maestro Morricone, 16 guest artist that include Andrea Bocelli, Chris Botti, Celine Dion, Renée Fleming, Herbie Hancock, Quincy Jones, Yo-Yo Ma, Metallica, Quincy Jones, Bruce Springsteen and others join in all-star performances of Maestro Morricone's most memorable music on his new album WE ALL LOVE ENNIO MORRICONE.

Amazon.com

The names on this tribute testify to the extraordinarily wide appeal of the Italian film composer Ennio Morricone: not many people could get Bruce Springsteen, Celine Dion, Quincy Jones, Renée Fleming, and Metallica on one disc. And while the artists come from very diverse genres, the album holds together well. Things start off on a syrupy note with Dion's "I Knew I Loved You," a ballad from 1984's Once Upon a Time in America (to which Alan and Marilyn Bergman added lyrics in 2006). But fortunately the CD quickly recovers and goes on to survey most of Morricone's styles, from the dissonance of his spaghetti Western scores to his mod period to his lush orchestral vistas. Metallica goes all out with guitars blazing on "Ecstasy of Gold," a track they've used as a concert intro for years, while Brazil's Daniela Mercury and Eumir Deodato breeze through "Conmigo," and the French-British combo Vanessa and the O's resuscitate the pure '60s pop of "Je Changerai d'Avis," once performed by Françoise Hardy. As for ballads, listen for soprano Renée Fleming, who surpasses her previous pop-crossover attempts on the fragile "Sail Away." Morricone himself couldn't stay away: he wrote interstitial music to create seamless transitions between the tracks, and conducts three instrumental cues. --Elisabeth Vincentelli

Being a very long time 'Tallica fan, I would lie if I said their track wasn't the main reason I've got the album in the first place. However, as any other music lover, I did look forward at other music that could have been interesting. And it does appear on this tribute. Yo-Yo Ma's track was enjoyable, Fleming's track too, so were 3 new tracks Ennio threw in for the additional pleasure.

All in all, the album is interesting because it has a good vibe of appreciation of the maestro. Therefore, I would recommend it to anybody, who knows Ennio's work and to others beyond.

As of Metallica track. It is nothing of a surprise, because the original song is very well known, and the cover is the true Metallica cover. It sounds very fresh, with little nice guitar solo tweaks, it feels like the guys are in their 20's again, it is done with the same 'not-too-serious' attitude as Garage days where done back in 87. It made me feel good, and that's what matters.

It'd be logical if they will play the concert intro themselves for these few Europe shows they have this summer, and I hope to see that happen, since I got the Vienna gig tickets already through the Metclub, hope to get Moscow ones too.

Take care and enjoy.

Not sure what there is not to love about this disc. The interpretations are unique, sometimes quirky and always interesting; the recording is gorgeous; and Morricone's segues, which he composed and recorded, are very cool and show that much thought and creativity went into the overall production. (Only complaint is the absence of translations for the foreign-language tracks.) After reading some of these reviews, I had doubts about making the purchase. Now I'm so grateful that I did! Highly recommended!

I am a "die hard" Ennio Morricone fan and have been since 1968, so I can't understand for the life of me why the other reviews for this disk are so negative about this absolutely beautiful album!

I was thrilled to see Ennio finally receive an Academy Award this year! He deserved to receive many Academy Awards over the past 40 years for all his magnificent works. Next to Elmer Bernstein, I consider him my favorite film composer. Many of the selections on this album I had never heard before. Metallica playing "The Ecstacy of Gold" is absolutely reiveting! Andrea Bocelli is a perfect fit to sing Ennio's songs. Incidentally, Mr. Bocelli also sings two of Ennio's otherwise unknown songs on one of his older albums. Unknown to us in the USA only because Ennio has chosen to focus his life's work on mostly Italian film scores.

I only wish his scores were more accessable to us living outside of Italy. I have much of his film music, but it's still very hard to find. I truly feel that the genius of Ennio's music will not fully be appreciated until after he is gone from us.

So to anyone who really wants to know what a modern film score genius sounds like...BUY THIS ALBUM!!!

Although I'm somewhat of a fan of the movie music of Ennio Morricone, I have just discovered this wonderful tribute album of some of his 'greatest hits'. The artist selection and the editing linking one track to the next makes this collection especially enjoyable. As other reviewers have stated, the Metallica cover of 'The Ecstasy of Gold' alone is worth the price - but there's so much more. If you lean towards liking mainly one type of music, let's say for example top forty, this album probably won't be your cup of tea. But if your musical tastes are truly eclectic, and you have even a slight aquaintance with Morricone's work (and who doesn't), you should check this out. Highly recommended.

This composer is a genius and gifted. He worked on over 500 movies. I love to play this music as I clean house or garden...or anything... Some of his music should be included in all music lover's library.

This CD has some amazing redux of Morricone's film themes, especially the Herbie Hancock rendition of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (except for the bizarre solo in the middle). Overall, this is a superb CD. The best take is Metallica's Ecstacy of Gold. Worth purchasing. I have it in my car CD player right now. It's worth the money.

This compact disc is entitled "We All Love Ennio Morricone" who is a productive and prolific composer and musician. Apart from the list of contributors like Celine Dion, Renee Fleming, Bruce Springsteen, Quincy Jones, Metallica, Yo-Yo Ma, Herbie Hancock, and many others on this seventy minutes of music, we get a variety of sounds and voices at times. Ennio Morricone was finally awarded an honorary Academy Award a couple of years ago. It was well-deserved for his contributions to original scores over 500 in films over his movie career.

My only complaint with this compact disc is that it doesn't explain why he is so well-loved by the people who sing and contributed to the compilation. Not even an explanation as to why he is loved in the arts industry, it would have been helpful to have understood his brilliance in music and why is so highly regarded even though his name may not be as famous as his peers.

Apart from that exception, I enjoyed listening to the sounds, voices, and the music of Ennio Morricone who would not have made it possible.
