Here’s a link to an article about composer Daniele Luppi, the photo was shot by my wife Heather D’Augustine and he’s sitting in my car, a 1972 Citroen Maserati. Check it out here.
My good pal Daniele Luppi was asked by the L.A. Film Festival to program a Spaghetti Western with a score he admired and he picked a classic, Sergio Corbucci’s epic Navajo Joe or as it was also called A Dollar A Head. See a young handsome Burt Reynolds give an incredible physical performance as an angry Indian out for revenge. Burt was a stunt man before he became a huge star and he executes some incredible feats in this film. Sergio Corbucci , one of the top directors of Italian Westerns , 2nd only to the greatest Sergio, Sergio Leone, delivers a violent, action packed film, a worthy companion to his masterpiece, The Grand Silence. And Ennio Morricone’s iconic score will blow you away.The vocal stylings of Alessandro Alessandroni’s choral group I Cantori Moderni, are used to amazing effect. Go See It!
