I had the great pleasure of seeing Ennio Morricone Live At Radio City Music Hall this past saturday night in his first US Performance ever (!). I've never seen so many musicians and singers on a stage at the same time before (something approaching 200 I think). The renditions were very faithful to the originals. It was so amazing hearing classics like "The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly" with that huge orchestra and chorus. If you ever have a chance to see The Maestro live- do not miss it.
