Composer

“During a recording session of music for an early film I was involved with, (composer) Nino Rota asked if anyone in the orchestra could whistle—. I was playing guitar then. No one came forward so I said that I could try but couldn’'t promise anything. But it worked and that is how the quality of my whistle was discovered. By the time Ennio [Morricone] and I worked together, I was an expert!”
