Glamjack Of The Spirits

A beautiful day in city today and it almost felt like spring with that big blue sky engulfing all of us! I realized that I haven't shared any of my own song re-works lately, so here's one for your listening pleasure. This is a song called "Fellini Odyssey" and since it's Oscar weekend it seems only appropriate to feature a song based on a movie; one of my favorite movies for that matter. This song is from Federico Fellini's fantastic film "Juliet Of The Spirits", a deliciously neurotic story and visual orgy that was nominated for two 1967 Academy Awards including Best Art Direction and Best Costume Design. The movie score was done by none other than Nino Rota who was Fellini's main music man. Nino Rota was a world renowned composer who is best known for film scores. He scored nearly all of Fellini's films and took cinema music scores to new heights. He also scored films by Luchino Visconti, Franco Zeffirelli and the first two of Francis Ford Coppola's Godfather trilogy. He wrote more than 150 movie scores for Italian and international productions from the 1930's until his death in 1979. Nino Rota, thank you for giving us amazing music! Enjoy
