Ennio Morricone – Lounge
Orange Vinyl Double LP – £29.99 (Numbered edition of 3000)

Lounge is the third in a series of five double vinyl releases that bring together some of Ennio
Morricone’s greatest soundtrack music. Each collection centres on a different movie genre,
together they allow the listener to rediscover the unmatched genius of the greatest movie
composer of all time. The Maestro. This collection was announced before Ennio Morricone
passed away on July 6, 2020. We’ll continue to release the series to honour this great composer.
The term Lounge Music is not one that Ennio Morricone would have heard at the time he
was composing these pieces for the movies that they enhanced, but it is one that has been
retrospectively applied to a certain type of music, and it is a style that Morricone has contributed
a great deal towards.

Lounge refers to a type of easy listening music that began to be popular in the 1950s and
developed right through the 1960s and into the 1970s. This was sophisticated music for an adult
audience. Lounge music combined its American influences with music that was popular outside
the USA such as Latin, Hawaiian, Polynesian, French , and many others. This was an era that
was inspired by new inventions. Lounge mimicked the space-age sound effects of the time and
the advent of stereophonic technology allowed spatial audio techniques to be used to full effect.
This collection is not about a specific genre of music for film, it is a celebration of Lounge
style pieces by Morricone that are capable of evoking in the listener thoughts of easy living,
sophistication, romantic moods, and the excitement of a 1950s cocktail lounge or a 1960s
nightclub.
