He seems tired, relaxed, and happy in his reflections on THE SAND PEBBLES. And then talking about how the system of Film Music had changed over the years. Great stuff.

It most like has been posted here before, but for those who haven't seen it, I hope you enjoy!

As Jerry mentions, he was actually called in to replace Alex North as composer for SAND PEBBLES due to North's illness at the time. Would be interesting to hear what North's score would be like, as I believe this would be the first and only time the maestro would have done a project which would require an "Asian" flavor to it. I can't recall any other Alex North Asian Flavored film scores.

Thanks for posting this! So, can we start guessing which current project he is referring to at the end of the video, when he says he is on his last day of a 2 1/2 month scoring project and is totally bored by it? His 1989 pics included LEVIATHAN, STAR TREK V and WARLOCK, if I recall correctly.

I've always wondered about that. At the beginning of the interview, Jerry misremembered the release year of The Sand Pebbles as 1967 and the interviewer says "yes, 21 years ago"...so the interview clip may actually be from '87 or '88...

I'm guessing it's Criminal Law or Alien Nation. He mentions it's all-electronic. All-electronic probably took a long time for him, especially if there are production delays. Criminal Law was made in '87 and didn't get a release until '89, but the score album came out in late '88.

Oh, I missed have missed when he said it was all-electronic, that would indeed narrow it down to just those two projects for sure.
