ENNIO MORRICONE & GRUPPO D'IMPROVISAZIONE NUOVA CONSONANZA / A Quiet Place In The Country
The missing link in the Morricone / Gruppo discography. Their original unreleased avant / cacophonic score to Elio Petri's manic Artsploitation masterpiece was the first and last time Morricone and Il Gruppo would co-sign an OST/session. Conducted by Bruno Nicolai with vocalisations by Edda Dell’Orso and drums by Vincenzo Restuccia, A Quiet Place In The Country is an historic (and quite forgotten) recording that sees Il Gruppo in their key gestational phase just prior to recordings for Deutsche Grammophon, RCA Italiana (The Feed-Back) and the magnificent unreleased session, Niente. Featuring Gruppo di Improvvisazione Nuova Consananza members Franco Evangelisti, Mario Bertoncini, Egisto Macchi, Ennio Morricone, John Heineman and Walter Branchi and recorded at Forum Studios Roma 1968. Remastered 2014 from the Original Stereo Album Master Tapes (originally prepared by Morricone for a 1968 LP release but for reasons unknown not issued at the time).
