John, i hope you have found the beauty and the peace and the love that your talents as a composer have given to so many people over the years, on the other side, whatever we want to believe the other side is.

Since that other J.B. is being globally feted today, we’re gonna resurrect (and it ain’t even Easter wink this lil'
tribute in equivalent honor for those who weren’t around when it was first, um, composed.

Whilst it’s hardly what we specifically envisioned once upon a concept via authoring our own tome on
John but, generally speaking, we’d wager it still can accommodate Shakespeare’s revamped “Tis enough …
hopefully twill serve.”

Always In All Ways and For All Tyme: Our One and Only Favorite.

Growing In (never 'up') with his music and then having the honor and privilege of watching him work, being invited to his scoring sessions and getting to know the Artist, the Man (and the complexly simple yet simply complex Human Being,

not the idealized icon)
was, far and away, THE professionally-personal and personally-professional apex of not only Hollywood
- Act I or our alleged 'career' but a pinnacle of Life itself.

Heartfelt thanks, Neo, for your unremitting reminders of John Barry's importance to many of us - and just as critically, to keep the flame burning for future generations.

Barry will never be forgotten, as long as music itself exists.

Granted, for all the insufferably serious o-so-superficially-'superior'-classical snobs, he may
not be Beethoven or Mozart. But here's a forever flash for ya - he doesn't have to be.

He's our Mozartian Beethoven not only From Here to Eternity but beyond into Infinity as well.

Peerless period - full fabulous start (there shall ne'er be a 'finish' - Evah). wink

From our Interview with the Real, not Reel, J.B. Department:

“I think the cinema is the concert hall of the future. I mean, when you think about it: writing, say,
an hour’s worth of music for a Bond film, the audience you’re hitting within a month’s time is phenomenal
nobody’s ever had that kind of audience before.

Film is a very special area and a very unique art form. I don’t believe I’ve ever worked on a film where
I didn’t learn something. There’s always something different in terms of possibly going in another direction.

“You start working subconsciously very early on,” he reflected. “For me, it’s usually a cleaning out process
of what not to do
. I find it easier to chip away, like a sculptor, to discover what the shape is. You can have a
specific concept regarding how you want to go about something but, occasionally, it’s switched around by what’s on the screen.

Everyone reads a script in a slightly different way, but it’s what you finally have up there on celluoid which you
ultimately have to go with
, not what you think the movie should’ve been - which is a fatal trap to fall into.

Any good film I’ve ever scored, the Goodness of it has been there in the script and in the direction, which makes my job 10 times easier. I mean, it’s like you see a movie that good, you tend to say ‘You don’t need any music’, and then you have the luxury of riding on the crest of those marvelous moments. It’s like anything else – when the team’s good, and its working, there’s nothing more exhilarating.

"It’s really rewarding when all the elements come together and everything takes off; I mean, that’s one thing you learn in this business: when it’s there, everybody knows it.”

My dedication piece to Barry. Loved his string writing.

I agree with Barry in that cinema is the concert hall of the future. I and others have said as much in here(smile).Nice to know someone thoughtful with talent said it.

Happy Birthday John Barry. "Goldfinger" was the score that got me hooked on you, thanks to the soundtrack ablum (I saw the film when it premiered on "The A.B.C. Sunday Movie" in 1972).
