Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi
Producer Brian Burton (a.k.a. Danger Mouse) and Luppi, an Italian composer, labored for five years on this heartfelt tribute to Italy's golden age of movie scores. They recorded in the title city with local musicians who served on films by master directors Sergio Leone and Dario Argento. "We did everything we could to capture the sounds as well as the spirit," says Burton, who recruited Jack White and Norah Jones as guest vocalists. "We did our homework well."
