Corbucci for me Cool To me The Great Silence is as good as anything he has done with Leone, and used with taste by Corbucci.

A tie between Petroni and Corbucci (so I won't vote).

I won't mention the obvious selections from the Morricone/Corbucci shelf.

The collaboration between Petroni and Morricone is well known for just one film score ("Death Rides a Horse") however the masterful film score for Petroni's "Life is Tough, eh Providence?" is one of Morricone's best from the genre.
The film ain't bad either.

    Much of Morricones music in Corbucci's Great Silence,The Mercenary and Companeros are amongst my favourites of his compositions,BUT  if we are discussing the above mentioned collaborations then we must not only take into account the films with the great soundtracks but also the ones with the not so great scores,and the music provided for the likes of Navajo Joe,Hellbenders,What Am I Doing In The Middle Of The Revolution and Sonny & Jed in my opinion aren't quite up to the standard of the other three i mentioned.
    I voted for the Morricone/Solima collaboration for the 3 films they did together because they all consistently of a very high standard. Wink

  Well, I'll jump on the bandwagon and go with Corbucci.  Morricone's score for TGS ranks up there with his best Leone scores IMO, and as already pointed out, The Mercenary is highly enjoyable.

As much as I like his score for TBG (including the supposed "annoying" title theme) and RMR, I cannot stand his score for "Face To Face".

As far as "Navajo Joe"'s score...I would say that ranks up there with Morricone's best and most recognisable of the genre.

The scores for the others mentioned ("what am I doing...?" and "Sonny and Jed") are small works but quirky. Anything other than the title themes are filler.

We'll have to differ over Sollima's films because both scores for FTF and TBG are magnificent in my books.Certainly there is tons of variety in both soundtracks whereas in both Companeros and Great Silence there is very little variety.The Mercenary is Morricones strongest and most  interesting score for a Corbucci film.   
   A good case could also be made for the Petroni collaboration also being more consistent than for Corbucci's films as the soundtracks for Death Rides A Horse,Tepepa and Providence are all great.

I'm not so sure about that one Banjo...

The title theme is the only noteworthy peice of music in "The Mercenary". Luckily it's one of Morricone's best.

The rest is standard mexican music.

I don't think so because most of it is (using Cigar Joes description) separate leitmotifs for the different characters which aren't really mexican flavoured like the title theme fiesta music is.
Personally i think the bullring arena piece is as good as anything Morricone has done Smiley

Its Corbucci for me to.  Personally, although a bit repetitive, I love the Hellbenders music.  And Companeros, Mercenary and Great Silence are right up there with Morricone's best.  I also really love the Navajo Joe music

Agreed but that is just the main title theme.
