‘The Irishman’ Composer Reveals How He and Scorsese Create the Perfect Soundtrack
As a songwriter and producer, Canadian musician Robbie Robertson is probably best known for his work with the Band, Bob Dylan’s backing outfit, which had a heavily influence on music of the 1960s and ’70s.
But he’s also gained fame for his multiple collaborations with director Martin Scorsese, starting with 1978’s The Last Waltz, a documentary about The Band’s final performance. Together, Robertson and Scorsese have worked on several iconic film projects, including Raging Bull, Casino, The Departed, The Wolf of Wall Street, and, now, The Irishman.
