Two days left to submit your choices.

This was a bitch and a half to figure out. Going through the sheet music my list was totally unmanageable. So logically with just a piano I felt It really couldn't capture most of these themes as the composers meant for them to be heard, but a piano and vocalist was a golden opportunity to hear vocals that have never and may never be heard again.

Still the list remained unmanageable. So I focussed on my 4 top composers and then immediately eliminated two of them. John Williams and Ennio Morricone do not have that much in the area of unrecorded vocals in your sheet music collection. So that leaves a guy with some success in that area, Elmer Bernstein and the other who was also great at it but had little to spotlight that talent until more recently when the likes of Barbra Streisand and Sarah Brightman got hip to the treasure trove he has - Jerry Goldsmith.

I have also eliminated titles that I found a 45 RPM for or some singer has already recorded. So please try to find room for some of these if possible:

Jerry Goldsmith vocals:

Elmer Bernstein vocals:

I guess I'll limit my choices to titles I don't own or have never seen:

Bernstein "Somewhere in the Used to Be" from WALK ON THE WILD SIDE
Delerue "Our Mother's House"
Previn "Look Again" from IRMA LA DOUCE and "Long Day's Journey Into Night"
Skinner "Back Street"

Here's some Neal Hefti that I don't think has been released on CD/LP that I can remember, so I think these would be a good addition:

--Cute, Girl Talk, Wildroot, and the Won Ton Ton Rag.

Hey Sheetmusicman - Could you please fix the link to the Vince Guaraldi section, as I would like to pick from some of those too...


 Posted:   Aug 14, 2013 - 8:51 PM   
 By:   Philip Colston   (Member)

This is a fascinating idea.

My choice would be Michel Legrand’s Theme From The Go-Between (I Still See You).

Also interesting, and also in the “quasi-Baroque” style, would be Neal Hefti’s Duel at Diablo (Main Theme).

Probably shouldn't have waited until the last minute, huh?

Frontiere's theme from "Vegas".

WOW!! What a great outpouring of suggestions.
Will try to get to as many of them as possible during our day of recording.

Reminder, today is the final day to make your picks.

A few last additions that might be interesting:

Williams - Prisoner of Azkaban - "Double Trouble" (piano & vocal)
Desplat - Deathly Hallows Part 2 - "Lily's Theme" (piano & vocal)
Williams - E.T. - "Over the Moon"
Shore - Fellowship of the Ring - The Prophecy (piano & vocal)
Beltrami - "Live Free or Die Hard"
Desplat - The Painted Veil - "The Painted Veil"
Powell - Mr & Mrs Smith - "Assassin's Tango"

Please pick whatever you find interesting to record!

Not sure if I suggested this before:

Williams - Three Holiday Songs from Home Alone (vocal & piano reduction) (If you do only one, "Star of Bethlehem" would be great, or perhaps "Merry Christmas")

And as I suggested previously, this would be very interesting, because not all of the pieces have recordings:

Williams - Seven for Luck (piano reduction & vocal): especially "Adolescence", "Serenade", "Expecting", and "Starting Over"!

Williams - Lincoln: if possible, you could do the entire piano book: it's supposedly arranged by Williams himself, and it's a very short book.

In fact, I would gladly 'waive' all my other piano-only John Williams suggestions in favour of Seven for Luck, the Lincoln book, and perhaps those Home Alone holiday songs!

Good news.

Glad you had a splendid time. smile

Will you be informing us FSMers which titles you had recorded?

"close to 50" leads me to think of a number greater than 45 - say 47 or 48 pieces?
