I can't believe how that one, silly (and possibly drunken) interview can basically hijack a good deal of this forum.

It would amaze me if anyone here really thought that much of him as a film score composer...granted, as a producer he was outstanding. Some of the time.

So he said that quote about Bernard Herrmann...any film score enthusiast knew that already.

Sorry, I felt the voices of reason needed to intercede on this baffling overthrow.

Well for those of us into 60s and 70s film scores, now sound, jazz, Q is a fairly central figure. That said, I don't think we need an individual thread for every word he uttered in the interview.

I'm completely with you, on all points. But...I just don't see Jones as having the weight of the composers most admired around here.

That said, he is an incredible musician, songwriter, producer. He's awesome. Yeah, really.

Yeah he could be a great film composer...

Try sound clips on this Intrada release (sadly complete scores were lost so these are only the original album versions):

I'm a big Quincy film score fan. I particularly love 'The Pawnbroker', 'The Italian Job', In Cold Blood, The Deadly Affair. I regularly have the 'Cinema Of Quincy Jones Box Set' on rotation'. I therefore find WA's remarks a little uncalled for. She showers this group with her opinions and then moans because a couple of threads are started relating to a pretty good interview with a composer she doesn't rate.. Not cool, WA, not cool at all........

I remain unimpressed. But I've had enough of what was meant to be a joke topic.

As a farewell (it's been fun and extremely educational), I honestly hope everyonel here finds their greatest happiness and success ahead of them.

I'm out!

What was a joke topic? Starting this thread? It didn't come across as a joke, hence the response.

So, in other words, you didn't get the response you wanted.

Yes, people do care about the film music of Quincy Jones. Sorry about that.

I honestly think that if he only had his film scores to his name, we’d be talking about him here with at least the same level of reverence that we do people like Lalo Schifrin and the like. But he was such a monumental genius that his film music is only his 6th or 7th most culturally significant achievement, so people tend to treat that side of his career like a footnote. But yeah, one thread was probably fine.

I had no idea his film career was so prolific.

And "Do people REALLY care about x?" is almost never a good question. (Yes, I'm looking forward to Solo.) "Why to we have fifteen threads about this?" is a lot more reasonable.

That could be interpreted as a "racist" remark.

I learned that lesson the hard way with my early ".?????.....Max Steiner" thread.
Give WA some slack. She's a newbie.
Brm
