Each week, FACT trawls through the untamed world of free mixes, radio specials and live blends so you don't have to. This week, we've got a tribute to World-renowned Italian composer and soundtrack master - Ennio Morricone, who recently celebrated his "60th year in showbiz." In honor of that milestone, Morricone recently released his new Decca album - ‘Morricone 60', the day after his 88th birthday. The collection celebrates EM's prolific career which spans 60 years and 600 compositions.  The deluxe album version is accompanied by a DVD called ‘MORRICONE & TARANTINO at ABBEY ROAD STUDIOS', which documents thecomposer and director collaborating on The Hateful Eight.

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, Days of Heaven, The Hateful Eight… Ennio Morricone has composed more classic Hollywood scores than, well, pretty much anyone ever. With over 500 movies to his name, though, spaghetti westerns are just the tip of Morricone's iceberg – he has also composed for jazz and pop artists and created groundbreaking experimental work. Guiding us through the lesser navigated corners of his career is post-classical composer Olivier Alary, whose Vinyl Factory mix focuses on Morricone's ‘60s pop compositions, his atonal work with the Gruppo di Improvvisazione di Nuova Consonanza, his 1970s film work and more.
