Original soundtrack from the movie Il Mercenario (A Professional Gun), a Western movie from 1968 starring Franco Nero and Jack Palance. Music was fully composed and orchestrated by Ennio Morricone and directed by legendary Bruno Nicolai. A lesser-known Morricone soundtrack – written for an obscure western, but right up there with some of the maestro's best for much bigger movies! A number of tunes have that spooky "whistler" style of writing that we love from Morricone – spare whistling over darker orchestrations – in ways that create some spare and wonderful passages that are especially great! Other tracks are a bit fuller, and more dramatic – the bolder western modes of the 60s – and the set also features two vocal numbers, sung by I Cantori Moderni – that wonderful vocal group that shows up on some of our favorites from the time
