Monday: Come on, let’s start the week with some AWESOME music!
Danger Mouse & Daniele Luppi
and their most recent 2011 album: Rome.
ROME is the album written by the American music producer Danger Mouse and the Italian composer Daniele Luppi. The album took five years to make and was inspired by the music from the so-called very-americanized-way-of-categorizing-things: “spaghetti westerns”.
The album was recorded using vintage equipment and, as well as featuring musicians who recorded spaghetti western soundtracks, also features a reunited Cantori Moderni – the choir put together by Alessandro Alessandroni – which features on the soundtrack to The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. The album also features vocals by the American singers Jack White on the tracks “The Rose with the Broken Neck”, “Two Against One” and “The World”, and Norah Jones on the tracks “Season’s Trees”, “Black” and “Problem Queen.” White also chose to provide the lyrics for his three songs.
