Biography
Riziero "Riz" Ortolani (25 March 1926 - 23 January 2014) was an Italian film music composer. Ortolani was born in Pesaro, Italy in 1926. In the early 1950s he founded his own jazz band. In 1962 Ortolani wrote his first film score for Paolo Cavara and Gualtiero Jacopetti's pseudo-documentary "Mondo cane", whose main title-song "More" earned him a Grammy and was also nominated for an Oscar as Best Song. The success of the soundtrack of "Mondo cane" led Ortolani to score films in UK and in the United States such as "The 7th Dawn" (1964), "The Yellow Rolls-Royce" (1964), "The Glory Guys" (1965) and "The Spy with a Cold Nose" (1966).
