Mitch & Mitch are a mysterious Polish band who refuse to give out interviews and refer to each other with pseudonyms.
The band started out playing country & eastern (their own version of country & western). They expanded their inspirations to Italian songs a la San Remo, Japanese ballads, porn film soundtracks from the 1970s, samba and mambo.
The musicians cloak their personalities under pseudonyms based on the name ‘Mitch’ but are well-known faces from the Warsaw alternative music scene.
They recorded their favourite Morricone tracks at Studio S4 in Warsaw with the repertoire consisting exclusively of Morricone’s easy listening/bossa nova period (1969-1971).
The album, entitled Amore assoluto per Ennio (Absolute Love for Ennio) was released by Jazzboy Records. (www.sklepjazzboy.pl).
Ennio Morricone was an Italian composer, mainly known for his scores for TV and film and regarded as one of the most prolific (over 400 scores and 100 classical works) film composers of all time with two Academy awards, three Golden Globes, six BAFTAs plus a host of other awards.
Amongst the most well-known of his film scores are A Fistful of Dollars, Cinema Paradiso, The Good the Bad and the Ugly, The Untouchables and so many more!
He gained international fame for his scores for Westerns and sold 10 million copies of Once Upon a Time in America.
