"This is a record that has fresh, good and intelligent ideas. It is realization on a high level, a work done by a maestro with great science-fantasy and creativity. At times my works have been varied from but it doesn’t change anything because the pieces are still recognizable. My ideas have been realized not in a passive manner, but in an active manner which has recreated and re-invented what I have done previously for films. Many people have done versions of my pieces, but no one has done them like this." — Ennio Morricone.

Boasting an incredible all-star lineup of musical masters, The Big Gundown is THE landmark album that first introduced Zorn’s wild musical universe to a larger audience, influencing a whole new generation of creative musicians. Newly remastered, this 15th anniversary edition includes six remarkable bonus tracks recorded especially for this definitive edition now available exclusively from Tzadik.

Accompanying this classic pairing of Morricone’s brilliant originals and Zorn’s exciting arrangements is a fabulous 32 page full color booklet filled with informative notes, movie stills, posters and more.
