The Godfather Movie Suite

The Godfather Suite
Music by Nino Rota

When this gangster-crime movie burst on the scene in 1972, it approached the the genre from such a different perspective that people had to see the film. The music was composed by Nino Rota an Italian composer who scored for hundreds of soundtracks. In fact this music was nominated for an Oscar, but did not win when it was proven that some of the music had been utilized on another film years earlier. To bad, because the movie suite is filled with touching solos of many instruments such as violin, guitar, banjo, trumpet, clarinet and softly swooned orchestral themes that are as familiar today as they were back in 1972. With a timing of 18:38 you can't go wrong with this one. Enjoy!  -MJ
