Trailer Tuesday - Rome
This week's Trailer Tuesday isn't your usual film trailer. It's about a new concept album by music producer Danger Mouse and Italian composer Daniele Luppi called Rome - an homage to classic Italian film soundtracks and features Jack White and Norah Jones.
Entitled Rome after the album's city of inception, it could equally be named Spaghetti Western Soundtracks Updated, such is the influence of those evocative sounds. Neither of the duo have attempted to hide such links, either: not only did they decamp to studios formerly used by Ennio Morricone, but Luppi pulled off something of a coup in reuniting the original players from Once Upon a Time in the West and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. Far from merely retreading the past, mercifully, the fiercely analogue results take on a sophisticated dimension of their own.
