With “La trappola scatta a Beirut”, Ennio Morricone entered the world of Eurospy with a great American-flavored jazz-swing score in which the composer completely eliminates the strings, leaving room for brass and rhythm section in the cues "La trappola scatta a Beirut (Titoli)," "Inseguimento," and "Missione pericolosa," and incorporating the organ to create atmospheres that evoke mystery and science fiction. There is no shortage of lounge moments either, such as the relaxing “Relax per un agente segreto," "Baci dopo le pallottole," "Languidamente," "Tramonto su Beirut,” and the danceable "In piscina." Pure dynamite for all fans of the genre!

For “Il successo”, Ennio Morricone wrote a jazzy OST with explosive winds and rhythms in “Il successo (Titoli)” and “Il successo (Finale),” featuring Nunzio Rotondo's trumpet. The life of the protagonist, a man who wants to reach the peak of professional success at any cost, is underlined by various themes that characterize his lifestyle, between parties and the desperate desire to reach enormous patrimonial wealth, as heard in "Con eleganza," "Il successo (Twist)," and "Allegra Sambina." The Maestro also composed a nostalgic theme for flute and small ensemble entitled "Per Vittorio," which is also reprised in the Latin version "Per Vittorio (Bossa)."

This CD, lasting 56:41, was taken from the mono master tapes of the original sessions (whose first edition was assembled by this writer under the supervision of Maestro Morricone himself), presents a good opportunity for all those who are only now discovering the greatness of Ennio Morricone to include it in their collections.
