Great Scott, great post!

I count myself as an admirer, too. And on top of all that talent he's a very sweet gentleman as well...my wife Francesca and I had a really nice chat with him at one of John Morgan's house parties and I remember being shocked at some of the hilarious things he said because he's very quiet-spoken.

I only wish you guys stop dropping tantalising hints about our favorite composers. You donĀ“t reveal the secrets in any case. Right? wink


Well, this was several years ago back when I lived in L.A. so my memory isn't the clearest but there was something about peeing off a balcony... smile

He didn't seem like the sort of guy who'd be too offended at my saying that. Very fun, charming chap. I can't fathom why he hasn't been more employed lately...same goes for David Shire. Wicker Tree and Zodiac respectively don't exactly cut it as far as recent output I'd like to see from these master composers.

Well, as you know Kari, my journey with John Scott is just really starting. I'm only
now getting to know many of his works.
I also had the pleasure of meeting and chatting to him a few years back in Ubeda.
He was indeed a charming English gentleman. I remember him saying something
like "well well, fancy meeting a couple of scousers (people from Liverpool) in a evening
party in remote Spain" upon encountering me and my mate. We had a cool chat.
I sure wish he was writing and getting stuff released more regularly.

You should have attended the many film music festivals in Spain over the past few years Kari.
It was a great way to meet and chat to many film music composers, in Ubeda especially, which had such a chilled, laid back atmosphere, instead of the usual hustle/bustle/"sign this/sign this" pandemonium that used to go on before. You could really relax, drink some beer/wine and amble about amongst such cool dudes as Basil Poledouris (what a lovely guy he was), Bruce Broughton, John Ottman, John Frizzell and John Debney (to name just some). Good times.
I've been playing Final Countdown and Mill On The Floss a lot recently, really getting to know them, while still revisiting the magnificence that is Antony & Cleopatra and Greystoke.
Even Yor got another play through. I really love that dreamy village theme he uses. The Main Theme is chunky, clunky 80's fun and the baddie march is a fun riff on the Imperial March from TESB.
