Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Great service. was delivered in 2 days June 20 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this album for the second time. The first one I lent to a friend and ended up giving it to him since he loved it so much. This album, not only makes you discover the greatest songs of Ennio Morricone, but it also makes you discover some of the greatest performers such as Chris Botti, Renée Fleming, Denyce Graves and many others. All songs are arranged so there are no pause between them. It's really one of my favorite albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Metallica does justice.. and more. Feb. 23 2007
By Lom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars This will DELIGHT Morricone fans! June 11 2007
By J. MILLER - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars A WONDERFUL TRIBUTE TO ONE OF THE GREATEST FILM COMPOSERS OF OUR TIME May 26 2007
By G. Horton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
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!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Why We Love Him? May 4 2011
By Sylviastel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Morricone Tribute Shows Maestro's Range March 22 2007
By Robert C. Cumbow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The tremendous range and diversity of Ennio Morricone's prodigious talent is on display in this tribute album by a surprising mix of artists performing their own renditions of the Maestro's work. Andrea Bocelli, Bruce Springsteen, Metallica, Herbie Hancock, Quincey Jones and Yo Yo-Ma are among the performers, and the performances range from good to great (though a couple of them weigh in as simply odd). Celine Dion's vocalization of the haunting theme from "Once upon a Time in America" opens the album, and is better to listen to than it was to watch on the Academy Awards. The music is continuous, with transitions crafted by Morricone himself, who also contributes a couple of the performances. I have only one complaint: the album label and liner notes do not identify the film from which each piece comes. As an intermediate-level Morricone Geek, I can identify most of them--but there are two or three I'd like to know more about.
