Riz Ortlani passed away on January 23rd 2014 at the age of 87; he was a tireless and surprising composer who left his mark on Italian cinema, from Vittorio de Sica to Dino Risi, along with American cinema, with “Drive” and “Django Unchained” paying tribute to his work. The music composed for “Le Fanfaron” (“Il Sorpasso”) – an Italian comedy par excellence – translated the general euphoria or the 60’s Italian economic booms. This release also features the soundtracks of Italian comedies “Big Deal on Madonna Street” (composed by Piero Umiliani and performed by Chet Baker); “Divorce Italian Style” (composed by Carlo Rustichelli); and “Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow” (composed by Armando Trovajoli).
