Mission Improbable: The Impossible Task of Rebooting an Iconic Movie Theme

Composer Lorne Balfe’s task, like any in the 52-year history of the “Mission: Impossible” franchise, was simple but not easy: Use Lalo Schifrin’s classic, iconic television theme, but find a fresh approach to effectively score Tom Cruise’s sixth outing as Ethan Hunt in “Fallout.” It took nine months of writing music, 30 full days of […]

"Tubular Bells" live in 1973

Mike Oldfield performs Tubular Bells live on the BBC in 1973. The first release on Richard Branson's new Virgin Records, Tubular Bells became a huge success after film director William Friedkin cast off the Lalo Schifrin score for his new film The Exorcist and went with "Tubular Bells (Part One)" instead. At the time, Oldfield said he didn't want to see the film because it was too scary.

Edgar Wright Gushes About 10 Movies That Influenced ‘Baby Driver’ (Part 1)

Leading up to the release of Baby Driver, director Edgar Wright was a guest programmer at the British Film Institute for a series of films under the banner Car Car Land. The filmmaker rounded up 10 of the movies that influenced Baby Driver in some way for cinephiles in London to enjoy. Since not everyone can attend those screenings and hear all the wonderful things he has to say about these movies, some of which he introduced himself, we wanted to hear from the man himself why he loves these mo...

It’s become a tradition of the filmmaker to reveal everything that he watched and read the previous year, and his list from 2016 has been posted.

Dizzy Gillespie: Perceptions

Earlier this week, I posted on two superb orchestral albums by Dizzy Gillespie in 1960—A Portrait of Duke Ellington (arranged by Clare Fischer) and Gillespiana (arranged by Lalo Schifrin). Both albums for Verve featured exciting scores with Gillespie soloing. As my friend and saxophonist Bill Kirchner reminded me in an email, Gillespie's orchestral adventures for the Verve label didn't stop there. To be sure. Another Gillespie album that jazz repertory orchestras should be performing today is P...

Dizzy Gillespie's Peak: 1960

From his first recorded solo on King Porter Stomp with the Teddy Hill Orchestra in 1937, Dizzy Gillespie projected a circus-like sense of drama on his trumpet. Throughout the 1940s, Gillespie pushed hard to stand out, co-inventing the complex bebop style mid-decade. By combining stage wit with taut musical daring, Gillespie stood out and attracted fans. He'd often climb to the heights on a solo only to scamper down in a similarly high-stakes manner, leaving audiences at the end of their seats. ...

Iron and Gold: The Music of Lalo Schifrin and Daniel Pollack

Daniel Pollack Daniel Pollack likes my shoes. Somehow my mundane story of a delayed shoe delivery made it to the Pollack household and soon after taking our coats and offering a drink, he requested to see the shoes. It is a detail indicative of Daniel Pollack and one that makes it easy to forget while in his presence that he is a world-renowned concert pianist who has played at a joint session of Congress and received a Fulbright nomination from President Harry Truman (which, of course, he was ...
