A Sampling of Morricone

It's no secret that Ennio Morricone is one of my favorite composers of all-time. With iconic scores such as The Good, the Bad and the Ugly and Once Upon a Time in the West, how could he not be one of the greats? His body of work has spanned many decades now and the man still works steadily. As a result, there's a wealth of material to discover. On occasion, I'll do just that - discover some previously unknown piece from Morricone's past. Of course YouTube helps quite a bit with these endeavors as there are hundreds of videos dedicated to Morricone's music. For those not as familiar with his work, I've put together a sampling of tracks below. Feel free to explore other titles that you find since the ones I've listed only cover the tip of the iceberg!
