INTRADA Announces:



CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER
Music Composed and Conducted by JAMES HORNER
INTRADA Special Collection Vol. 247


James Horner’s score for Clear and Present Danger (1994) begins with a burst of martial percussion and rising figures for horn and trumpet, ushering in a stirring patriotic theme that ebbs and flows through dense, rolling harmonies. Time and again, the melody returns to its center, steadfast and self-possessed. This is a story, the music says, of fundamental nobility; a story of the courage and honor that dwells in the heart of a true patriot; a story, in other words, of Jack Ryan. Then the music begins to subtly darken—a reminder that nobility is forged in adversity. Horner's ability to blend classical symphonic traditions with modern electronics resonates with both the Cold War milieu and technological sophistication of Tom Clancy’s novels. Horner can hone in on a story’s emotional center— no matter how twisted the plot -- and provide a major asset for stories that are filled with conspiracies and intrigues.

James Horner fashioned one of his longest film scores for Clear and Present Danger. Although he would typically include the majority of a score’s important cues on his soundtrack albums, for this one he selected just over half of the music recorded for the picture. Interestingly, many of the cues for the last section of the movie (after “Second Hand Copter”) were absent. Consequently, all of those sequences that found Jack Ryan (Harrison Ford) pressed into action in Colombia, battling drug lords bent on death and destruction, are premiering on this 2-CD set. Paramount Pictures provided Intrada with access to the scoring session masters, recorded and mixed digitally.

Clear and Present Danger was the third film from Paramount based on the Jack Ryan novel series by Tom Clancy, following The Hunt for Red October (1990) and Patriot Games (1992). It begins with an attack by Columbian drug lord that spurs the President of the United States (Donald Moffat) to set a secret war into motion. When things begin to get hot and Ryan comes close to exposing a conspiracy, he finds himself betrayed and alone. Ryan must travel to Columbia in a desperate bid to rescue the soldiers who have been so callously used and discarded. If he does not survive, the integrity of the American democratic system may well die with him.

Well, would you believe it, "climactic" means exactly what pretty much everyone thought it would mean. Who'd have thunk it?

Mine too! Probably the fourth or fifth one I purchased. (Jurassic Park and Last of the Mohicans being the first two)

Can't wait to sink my teeth into this. Always heard bland, relatively themeless Horner on action autopilot. After hearing the samples for the climatic cue, and hearing a soaring rendition of the theme in the final track, I think this is going to be a score WELL worth giving a second chance to (especially if I also get more panpipe olympics, a technique that is one of my favorites when it comes to Horner). I'm in.

Baaaaaahahaha....

OK - not seen the movie in years, and don't find the score that memorable...but this is an Intrada comprehensive release of a James Horner score....for me, that makes it essential. And a good chance to revisit the score (and perhaps movie).

Dammit, must not have the film version of the "Ambush" cue! Arrrgh.

Very glad this score got fleshed out, and I am looking forward to the unreleased cues, but...

at the same time I am disappointed that the "Ambush" cue is STILL missing the high-pitched piano overlays from the film mix frown

Hey, that's what I said! At least I know they did exist and I haven't been imagining them for 19 years.

I do believe the OP meant to use Colombia and not Columbia. This is a common mistake that spell check does not catch that passes the eye scan test.

Ouch! This one is on me -- Roger is drawing from my original draft of the notes there. My apologies to any Colombians out there! Hopefully, it got fixed for the booklet.
