Intrada: "LEGENDS OF THE FALL" (2CD) music by James Horner


Intrada's latest release from composer James Horner is one of his grandest works -- the 1994 western Legends of the Fall. Horner graced Legends of the Fall with no fewer than five broad, sweeping themes that recur throughout the picture, writing almost all of the score in the key of D major or related keys. The film was directed by Ed Zwick, with whom Horner previously collaborated on his magnificent score to Glory. After Zwick discussed the score and heard Horner's final product, Zwick commented, "All I can say is that somehow James managed to distill all these lofty conversations into a score that is at once brooding and lush, redolent of both love and loss, and that touches that secret place of awe I had experienced only once before—upon my first reading of Legends of the Fall."  Not that the score isn't without its moments of action, including a brilliant moment where Horner lays down the theme for Tristan on strings and horns over a bed of propulsive rhythm. It all combines to create an epic score and one of Horner's finest.

While the original CD release was a generous presenation of Horner's score, this new presentation expands the program considerably, filling up two CDs, including 35 minutes of alternates.

The film tells of a two-generational saga—filled with loss and desire—involving Col. William Ludlow (Anthony Hopkins in the film), a renegade with a moral stripe; his distant wife, Isabel (Christina Pickles); their three sons: Alfred (Aidan Quinn), Tristan (Brad Pitt) and Samuel (Henry Thomas); and the woman who suffers the fate of loving all three of them, Susannah (Julia Ormond).

Intrada: "TAKE HER, SHE'S MINE" music by Jerry Goldsmith

 
At a time when we're all sheltering at home, awaiting what's next and when "what's next" will be, we could all use something bright and cheery. Jerry Goldsmith's effervescent score to the 1963 20th Century Fox feature film Take Her, She's Mine fits that bill perfectly. The score kicks things off in a swinging jazz vein—a sound that underwent a revival in the late fifties and early sixties, and so was somewhat contemporary, but would have also resonated with older film goers. This strand runs throughout the score. To play up the story’s farcical elements, he frequently employs the contrasting colors of solo tuba and calliope. Goldsmith wrote two principal themes for Take Her, She’s Mine, both of which are explored in highly creative ways. The main title tune begins with a series of jocular ascending figures before meandering to its eventual resolution. The score’s second major idea is a frenetic motif chiefly associated with protagonist Frank’s misadventures.

There's only a handful of Goldsmith scores that have yet to be released in any form, and the music elements for this title were long thought damaged beyond use. But with advances in technology and the meticulous work of restoration expert Chris Malone, Intrada is able to present nearly all of Goldsmith's score in stereo. Malone had to restore the audio of each channel separately to get the wondrous results heard here. Rather than compromise the naturally wide instrumental spread, which was never intended for a stereo mix, Intrada also offers a mono presentation of the program as heard in the film.

The film opens with lawyer Frank Michaelson (James Stewart) brought before his bank colleagues to defend himself against a series of increasingly lurid headlines. The main story proceeds in flashback, as Frank’s comfortable life with his wife, Anne (Audrey Meadows), and two daughters is upended when the older girl, Mollie (Sandra Dee), goes off to college. Realizing that his daughter is, in the popular parlance, “a dish,” Frank frets to no end and lets his wild imagination get the better of him...

WaterTower Music: SELF-MADE: INSPIRED BY THE LIFE OF MADAME C.J. WALKER (SOUNDTRACK FROM A NETFLIX LIMITED SERIES)

 
WaterTower Music is excited to announce today’s digital release of the soundtrack to Self Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker (Soundtrack from a Netflix Limited Series). Based on a true story, this popular Netflix series stars Octavia Spencer, Tiffany Haddish, and Carmen Ejogo in the story of an African American washerwoman rising from poverty to build a beauty empire and become the first female self-made millionaire. The score is by Grammy-nominated pianist and composer Larry Goldings. The soundtrack also includes his arrangements of several songs from the era, including the track “Sweet Kisses [feat. Tiffany Haddish].” 

Goldings, whose composing inspiration takes from a lifetime of performing and absorbing jazz, pop, electronic and classical orchestral music, crafted the score with the intention of integrating hybrid styles. With a nod to the contemporary songs woven into the musical fabric of the series, the composer created overtly modern, back-beat oriented cues and hybrid jazz/ hip-hop tracks. These reference the series time period (roughly 1910 - 1920) via instruments associated with ragtime and early jazz (piano, trumpet, trombone, saxophone), providing subtle texture within a more contemporary musical context. 

Goldings explained the process in depth. “When I first took on the Madam C.J. project, the producers were interested in a score that included early 1900’s period-sounding music. They asked for and I created an "aural mood board" for several scenes — based only on reading the script — somewhat favoring an early jazz feel. Producers Nicole Jefferson and Elle Johnson loved it, and really connected with my music for the Sarah/Addie boxing scenes, in which I composed around a trumpet melody using it as the basis of a stream of consciousness track that conveys the dreamlike quality of these scenes. 

“There was also a want for some contemporary-sounding score elements,” the composer elaborated. “Taking a cue from licensed music incorporated into the series, I took musical themes from my mood board and, “deconstructed” them into more modern-day tracks with the addition of soulful bass lines and drums (with help from the gifted Abe Rounds). These funkier themes are associated with Madam C.J. and other characters and help signal the viewer at pivotal moments in the series. Still, there was plenty of need for quieter, emotional cues, which I instilled subtly with jazz harmonies and instruments of the era."

Fox Music/Hollywood Records: "AMAZON ORIGINAL SERIES TALES FROM THE LOOP"


Fox Music/Hollywood Records today released the digital soundtrack from the Amazon Original series, Tales from the Loop.  The album features original themes by Philip Glass and score by Paul Leonard-Morgan and is available.

Tales from the Loop is now streaming exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in more than 200 countries and territories worldwide.

From executive producer Matt Reeves and based on the acclaimed art of Swedish artist Simon Stålenhag, Tales from the Loop explores the town and people who live above “The Loop,” a machine built to unlock and explore the mysteries of the universe – making things possible that were previously relegated only to science fiction. In this fantastical mysterious town, poignant human tales are told that bare universal emotional experiences, while drawing on the intrigue of genre storytelling.

The series stars Rebecca Hall (Vicky Cristina Barcelona, The Town), Paul Schneider (Parks and Recreation), Daniel Zolghadri (Eighth Grade), Duncan Joiner (Waco) and Jonathan Pryce (The Two Popes, Game of Thrones)

Leonard-Morgan said, “Collaborating with Philip Glass on Tales from the Loop was an incredible experience. Philip and I had a discussion with Nathaniel Halpern (showrunner) and Mark Romanek (executive producer) about their vision for the show, the incorporation of unusual instruments, and their shared desire of wanting the soundtrack to be an integral part of the show: ‘Music which could be listened to by itself, melodies which could be hummed, a soundtrack which will stand the test of time apart from the series.’ Philip went and scored a bunch of initial ideas, as did I, and we discussed where they all might work together. Both of us playing off each other’s sounds and melodies to create a truly unique score. Over and again, we kept coming back to the original idea: to make beautiful music, which would work hand in hand with Nathaniel’s brilliant visions and beautiful cinematography. The 8 episodes are so unique—they’re like nothing we’ve ever seen, and hopefully the score stays true to this. Melodies come back throughout the show, each guiding us through the world of the loop. During recording sessions every 3 weeks, the natural sounds of the solo violin and the solo cello gave a beautiful, haunting sound to the loop, becoming an integral part of the sound.”

Glass added, “I’ve always tried to collaborate with people from many disparate perspectives; everyone from indigenous musicians to electronic musicians have expanded my musical sensibilities. Working with Paul was no exception and the intersection of our two styles has produced a score both unexpected and familiar that accompanies the series beautifully.”

ABOUT PHILIP GLASS
Born in Baltimore, Maryland, Philip Glass is a graduate of the University of Chicago and the Juilliard School. In the early 1960s, Glass spent two years of intensive study in Paris with Nadia Boulanger and, while there, earned money by transcribing Ravi Shankar’s Indian music into Western notation. By 1974, Glass had a number of innovative projects creating a large collection of new music for The Philip Glass Ensemble and for the Mabou Mines Theater Company. This period culminated in Music in Twelve Parts and the landmark opera Einstein on the Beach, for which he collaborated with Robert Wilson. Since Einstein, Glass has expanded his repertoire to include music for opera, dance, theater, chamber ensemble, orchestra and film. His scores have received Academy Award nominations (Kundun, The Hours, Notes on a Scandal) and a Golden Globe (The Truman Show). In the past few years several new works were unveiled including an opera on the death of Walt Disney, The Perfect American (co-commissioned by Teatro Real, Madrid and the English National Opera), a new touring production of Einstein, the publication of Glass’s memoir, Words Without Music, by Liveright Books, and the premiere of the revised version of Glass’ opera Appomattox, in collaboration with librettist Christopher Hampton, by the Washington National Opera in November 2015.

Glass celebrated his 80th birthday on January 31, 2017 with the world premiere of Symphony No. 11 at Carnegie Hall. His 80th birthday season featured programming around the globe, including the U.S. premieres of operas The Trial and The Perfect American, and world premieres of several new works, including Piano Concerto No. 3 and String Quartet No. 8.

In 2015, Glass received the U.S. National Medal of Arts and the 11th Glenn Gould Prize. Glass was honored with the Richard and Barbara Debs Composer’s Chair from Carnegie Hall for the 2017-2018 season. Glass received the 41st Kennedy Center Honors in 2018, and the GRAMMY Trustee’s Award in 2020.

ABOUT PAUL LEONARD-MORGAN
Paul Leonard-Morgan’s unique cinematic style of fusing orchestra with electronica has put him in high demand as a film composer, a producer and arranger for bands, and has led him to win a BAFTA award, and receive Emmy & Ivor Novello nominations.

Prior to working in film, Leonard-Morgan produced and arranged for acts including Belle and Sebastian, Snow Patrol, Mogwai, and No Doubt. However, it was his groundbreaking score for Relativity’s Limitless, a paranoia-fueled action thriller starring Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro, that solidified him as a major player in the film music industry and was later nominated for the prestigious World Soundtrack “Discovery of the Year” Award in Ghent. His first Emmy nomination came in 2016 for the CBS TV spinoff of Limitless, helmed by Marc Webb (Spiderman, 500 Days of Summer).

Dredd, which topped the U.K. box office in its first week of its 2012 release, is widely recognized as launching a new generation of hybrid scores, causing Variety to note the impact of “the throbbing sounds of Paul Leonard-Morgan’s bass heavy score”. In 2016, Leonard-Morgan began working with Academy-Award winning director Errol Morris on a string of projects including the documentary feature The B-Side, the award-winning Netflix series Wormwood, and the newly-completed motion picture on Steve Bannon, American Dharma. Other credits include The Quiet One–the story of Rolling Stones founding member Bill Wyman, the feature Last Breath, the hit series reboot Dynasty for The CW, and Designated Survivor on Netflix, and the feature The Tomorrow Man which debuted at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival. Paul’s latest project is Amazon’s sci-fi series Tales from the Loop (co-scored with Philip Glass), which will be available for streaming on April 3rd. He is also one of three composers who are scoring the highly anticipated video game Cyberpunk 2077—an open-world action-adventure story developed by CD Projekt Red, which is slated to be released in September 2020.

Paul’s work in animation includes three short Minions films, released alongside Universal Studio’s all-time highest grossing film Despicable Me 2, and Fox/Evergreen’s $80 million feature animation Walking with Dinosaurs 3D. Leonard-Morgan’s first video game soundtrack (EA Games’ flagship Battlefield Hardline) was released in 2015, and granted him the opportunity to score Warhammer: Dawn of War 3, released in April 2017.

He currently lives in Los Angeles, with studios in LA and Scotland.

MVD Entertainment Group: "SIXTEEN CANDLES" [BLU-RAY/DVD]


In his debut film as writer-director, John Hughes immediately cemented himself as the king of teen cinema with Sixteen Candles, and in the process also introduced one of the most iconic faces of '80s Americana: Molly Ringwald. For high schooler Samantha Baker (Molly Ringwald), her 16th birthday might be the worst day of her life. Her entire family has forgotten about it due to her older sister's impending wedding; her biggest crush, high school hunk Jake Ryan (Michael Schoeffling) has discovered an embarrassing "sex quiz" filled out by Sam in which she details how she is saving herself for him; and to make matters worse, she is hounded by a relentless nerd (Anthony Michael Hall) who won't take no for an answer. But Sam's sweet sixteen isn't over yet, and before the end of the night, all her birthday wishes could still come true... Taking the rude and crude humor of the teen sex comedies that came before it and placing it within the intimately portrayed perspective of a girl's mid-teenage-life crisis, Sixteen Candles is a bombshell of 80s pop culture that continues to be debated and beloved over three decades after its release. Year of Production: 1984

MVD Entertainment Group: "WHY DON'T YOU JUST DIE!" [BLU-RAY/DVD]


Shades of early Tarantino, Edgar Wright and Sam Raimi abound in this violent, stylish and riotously entertaining slice of family life, Moscow style, described as "a splatterpunk action comedy drenched in gleefully dark Russian humor" (The Hollywood Reporter) and "an amazing first feature from a filmmaker to watch" (Screen Anarchy). Matvey (Aleksandr Kuznetsov) has just one objective: to gain entry to his girlfriend's parents' apartment and kill her father Andrey (Vitaliy Khaev) with a hammer to restore her honor. But all is not as it initially seems, and Matvey's attempts to bludgeon the family patriarch to death don't quite go to plan as Andrey proves a more formidable - not to mention ruthless - opponent than he anticipated... and Matvey, for his part, proves stubbornly unwilling to die. Making his feature debut, writer/director Kirill Sokolov presents a rousing tale of family, modern relationships and the dark places they can take you to when things turn sour. Featuring a soundtrack that veers between Ennio Morricone-esque western riffs and toe-tappingly catchy pop numbers, Why Don't You Just Die! delivers laughs, shocking twists and copious quantities of blood and gore, and establishes Sokolov as one of cinema's brightest rising stars. Year of Production: 2018

Before you can say "split pea soup", Jessica is displaying signs of full-blown demonic possession - complete with projectile vomiting and fully-rotating head! Could it be that she's carrying the child of the Antichrist himself? Described as "disgusting", "scary trash" and "maddeningly inappropriate" by film critic Robert Ebert and subject to a lawsuit by Warner Bros. (who claimed copyright infringement against a certain William Friedkin film), the devilish denizens at Arrow Video have summoned up this wickedly entertaining popcorn spiller in a brand new, extras-packed edition fit for Satan himself! Year of Production: 1974
