I went looking and now I know who he is. Heard his music in the movies but didn't know his name. The 2 YT video posted above didn't help at all to ID him. None of those were with him. They were cover. The person who started this didn't post a link to any news articles providing more information. When you start a discussion about a famous person passing, it helps to post news articles links. It's a big world. Everyone doesn't necessary know everyone who is famous.
Agreed. It's a real tragedy what happened with "Once Upon a Time in America". In every way it is an outstanding film made by legendary director Sergio Leone and it has an incredible score by Morricone but yet the film was a major financial flop at the box office when released in 1984.

My Dad and I have always appreciated him too. The Mission is one of my favorite movies and likewise my Dad and I love that whole score including "Gabriel's Oboe". That's a piece that I'd have to say is anointed. I recommend the album that Yo-Yo Ma did of Ennio's music.
