INTRADA
Announces:



HOOSIERS
Composed and Conducted by JERRY GOLDSMITH
INTRADA Special Collection Vol. 226


For the 1986 Hemdale film Hoosiers, Jerry Goldsmith wrote one of his most endearing masterpieces — warm in its Americana, stirring in its basketball athletics and as rich in emotion as the movie it accompanies. His trumpet solos for the nostalgic Hoosiers theme rank with his finest melodic work and scoring a basketball in motion over a 7/8 rhythm is simply inspired. The expertly choreographed basketball sequences are among the highlights of Hoosiers, and Goldsmith’s surprising mix of orchestra and electronics is most prominent here, supplementing a rousing game motif with a sampled sound of an actual bouncing basketball, giving the cues a modern and effortlessly catchy rhythm. The result was an Oscar-nomination for Best Original Score.

Using the original digital mixes, Intrada worked with the entire score to make this definitive presentation. The original 1986 Polydor album featured 38 minutes, including a couple of beautiful cue assemblies (created by the composer himself that differed from the finished film edits). This album retains those unique assemblies where possible, while otherwise presenting the music in chronological order in this nearly hour long album.

Hoosiers relays a classic story — a team of underdogs emerges from obscurity and defeats the odds to become champions. In this case, it's a basketball team from an Indiana high school with an enrollment of only 161 students, who won their 1954 state championship. Teacher Norman Dale (Gene Hackman) is hired to run high school basketball in the town of Hickory after the death of its beloved coach. The Hickory Huskers’ star player, Jimmy Chitwood, has expressed his grief by quitting the team, and the townspeople are reluctant to let Dale use his own offbeat approach to coach the Huskers. Yet he perseveres to bring the team to victory.

Love this score, just great that it is now complete. An awesome release of one of the best scores ever. Can't wait to listen to "Hoosiers" on my terrific sound system. Not only is "Hoosiers" one of my favorite scores, but also a favorite film of mine. In my estimation the best "sports" film ever made.

Please help me, but with the recent Intrada and/or Hoosisers threads someone mentioned something so PERFECT about this release. They said, this new presentation will balance some of the beat tracks with some of the softer/dramatic pieces which might help folks which I think is so SPOT on.

The original presentation had a lot of that 80's synch pop sound, which many didn't like, me I loved it. BUT with this new presentation which has a LOT more dramatic/quieter cues, I think, least I hope more will take another listen and see/hear what we all know, this is a great score that was VERY worthy of the Oscar nom it got.

Me being a fellow Hoosier, I can't tell you how WELL Jerry captured the essence of what David wanted. That sweet Americana sound could literally be THE anthem for the state of Indiana. Please give this a listen and a chance. If you want more of a feel for this, come visit me in the fall around September and we'll play the music while sight seeing and you will see just how PERFECT Jerry captured that Indiana feel.
