Danger Mouse and Italian Composer Daniel Luppi Team Up for Incredible Italian Film Inspired AlbumPosted: May 17, 2011
Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi have been planning this for years, an album completely inspired by 1960’s and 70’s Italian film soundtracks. They reunited a group of professional Italian musicians, as well as singers Jack White and Norah Jones, in Rome, in order to record the project, also entitled ‘Rome’. The result is an expansive and interesting soundscape. The foundation for all the music on this album is Italian film scores, and even if you’re not an Italian film score expert, it is pretty easy to hear the hints of typical movie soundtrack phrases throughout the album. Combined with Danger Mouse’s amazing production abilities, by far one of the best producers in the world right now, and singers’ Jack White and Norah Jones talents, and Daniele Luppi’s Italian composition expertise, this album is a sparse, confrontational, romantic, desperate, dark, built for the big screen, spaghetti western score classic.

‘Season’s Trees’ is absolutely amazing. Danger Mouse can turn my parents possibly-mentally-challenged miniature poodle into a recording superstar if he wanted. It seems like his abilities in the studio are limitless. To read more about Danger Mouse & Daniele Luppi’s ‘Rome Project’, click here to stream the entire album on Rolling Stone.
