CD Review: FALLING IN LOVE soundtrack

FALLING IN LOVE soundtrack | ©2015 Kritzerland Records

Movie jazz has always seemed to find a home in Manhattan, and few composers awash in the spirit of an unsleeping city of a thousand stories have embodied those rhythms with the distinctive, thematic flair of Dave Grusin. Given a trademark NYC sound most often comprised of mellow electric percussion, reflective piano and wistful strings, Grusin has heard the city as both a place of danger (THREE DAYS OF THE CONDOR), gilded society (BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES) and eccentric criminal intent (THE POPE OF GREENWICH VILLAGE). But more often than not, it’s the vibes of beautiful, soft romance in scores …Read On »

Jared Padalecki in SUPERNATURAL - Season 10 - "The Werther Project" | ©2015 The CW/Liane Hentscher/

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Ruth Connell, Ty Olsson, Kavan Smith, Brenda Bakke Writer: Robert Berens, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Stefan Pleszczynski Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: April 22, 2015 SUPERNATURAL’s “The Werther Project” uses a magically-protected object to demonstrate that when it comes to blame and guilt, nobody can deliver it like one’s inner being. There’s even a good fake-out here, along with much better reason than usual for Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) to grapple with responsibility and angst. In 1973, annoyed teen Suzie is moved to knock out a …Read On »

CD Review: ETHEL soundtrack

ETHEL soundtrack | ©2015 Perseverance Records

Having started off with some fairly wacky narrative films like STREETS OF RAGE and way more artistic indie efforts like AMY’S ORGASM, Miriam Cutler has essentially become one of the queens of documentary scoring to the rhythmic tunes of LOST IN LA MANCHA, ONE LUCKY ELEPHANT and the Emmy-nominated THE DESERT OF FORBIDDEN ART. Yet with so many works, Cutler remains truthfully under-represented on CD, a fact that Perseverance’s release of her score for the Emmy-nominated HBO documentary ETHEL does a charming, and ultimately moving bit to remedy. Reteaming with GHOSTS OF ABU GHARIB director Rory Kennedy for a very …Read On »

CD Review: THE BETSY soundtrack

THE BETSY soundtrack | ©2014 Prometheus Records

John Barry could give even the trashiest movies a sense of rose-smelling class, especially when the pot was boiling over with a stew of upper class behavior involving the usual assortment of sex, murder and business chicanery – as centering around a clean-burning car engine called THE BETSY of all names. Such was the title that author Harold Robbins bestowed to this fun, Mr. Skin-worthy cinematic adaptation of his critically ta-ta’d brand of wealthily randy literature. Sure Barry might have been given a bit of cheese to work with in1978 between this, STARCRASH and GAME OF DEATH. But the big …Read On »

CD Review: KANGAROO: THE AUSTRALIAN STORY soundtrack

KANGAROO: THE AUSTRALIAN STORY soundtrack | ©2015 Counterpoint Records

Definitely the silliest title to grace a beyond-manly score, 1952’s KANGAROO was the first Hollywood film to be shot down under, even if its plot of two swindlers after an old coot’s money was a western that could have just as well taken place in Texas (of course minus a few shots of said creatures). Creating a massive orchestral soundtrack that was certainly as big as that state, not to mention a continent, was Sol Kaplan. Best known for his memorably shrill, epically dangerous music for the great STAR TREK episode “The Doomsday Machine,” Kaplan was an especially adventures composer …Read On »

CD Review: THE GREAT INVISIBLE soundtrack

THE GREAT INVISIBLE soundtrack | ©2014 Lakeshore Records

Ry Cooder’s ethereal scores merged country-folk guitar with blues rhythms, harmonica joining with rural percussion and eerie atmospheres of synths and metal to create such enticingly regional scores as SOUTHERN COMFORT, THE LONG RIDERS and PARIS, TEXAS – a landmark, often Tex-Med groove that has since been exceptionally taken up by David Wingo in such transfixing Southern Gothic scores asMUD and JOE. While Wingo has put his own melodic stamp on characters inhabiting the deep woods, the composer now chronicles the real deal as he plays one of the most catastrophic events to hit the Gulf of Mexico in the …Read On »

Bill Paxton in TEXAS RISING | ©2015 History Channel

In the History Channel’s miniseries TEXAS RISING, Monday nights at 9 PM, the Alamo has fallen and Sam Houston, played by Bill Paxton, has to simultaneously hold off the Mexican Army and calm down his own men, who don’t understand why Houston won’t let them attack. Paxton has plenty of experience playing military types, from a Colonial Marine in James Cameron’s ALIENS to turncoat Agent John Garrett in an arc on AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Other significant projects have included starring in five seasons of HBO’s BIG LOVE, as famous feuder Randall McCoy in History Channel’s HATFIELDS & McCOYS, a co-starring …Read On »

Disney continues their exceptional series of hard-bound “Legacy Collection” releases with THE LITTLE MERMAID, the 1989 soundtrack, and film that really put the studio back above animated water, netting the fist of many best Song and Score Oscars for the LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS stage duo of Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, whose hip energy was sought to awaken the studio from its animated doldrums with this now-classic adaptation of the Hans Christian Anderson fable – the first fairy tale for Disney since 1955s SLEEPING BEAUTY. What’s interesting about hearing the MERMAID in her complete, symphonic glory is just how …Read On »
