Franco Micalizzi and his “Big Bubbling Band” play in Rome, Italy 20/12/2013

Franco Micalizzi was born in 1939 and is an Italian composer and conductor who is best known for his musical scores of Italian action movies. His first big success came about for the musical score of the 1970 Spaghetti Western movie, “They Call Me Trinity” (with Bud Spencer and Terence Hill).  The soundtrack to the Italian film Italia A Mano Armata was eventually used in the soundtrack of Quentin Tarantino’s “Death Proof”.   Tarantino’s last movie, “Django Unchained”, also contained a Micalizzi piece, which was played in Rome.   

Other Micalizzi soundtracks have appeared in movies such as “The Last Hunter”, “Beyond The Door”, The Last Snows of Spring, “The Visitor” and “The Curse”.  Micalizzi’s 19-piece ensemble, the “Big Bubbling Band” (which he founded and which also includes American musicians), plays an entertaining mixture of both funk and jazz music.
