    Ever get stuck on a part of a tune or lick? I don't play out, just noodle around in the studio/office.... The last one I was stuck on I don't know the name of it but just loved playing it.... This week it's been those trumpet solos in the background of the spaghetti westerns.. You know, Fistful of Dollars.....

    "When I Fall in Love" has done that before. I blame Botti.

    Well, Ennio Morricone is a genius, so no surprise there...

    Even sitting on the deepest couch, you'll feel like you're riding a horse when listening to this stuff:
    Nice trumpet line beginning after 3.30, then at 7.25.

    Sergio Leone+Ennio Morricone+ Clint Eastwood= Best Westerns Ever Made, period.

    Morricone's genius doesn't stop there. "The Mission" (Roland Joffe, 1986) is based on real historical facts that happened around the time of Marcello, and the priest played by Jeremy Irons related how he played the Marcello's 2nd movement to the natives during his first encounter. Morricone re-created a wonderful oboe theme that comes back through the movie, including in this scene, which is probably my favorite, of all movies, of all times:

    The music kicks in very appropriately at 3.15 but it would be a pity to not watch the entire thing. As far as I'm concerned, de Niro never topped that performance, ever.

    Gabriel's Oboe scene and some background here:
