I've taken the liberty to upload a picture that Gorka Oteiza posted on Facebook in March this year, and cropped Mr. Oteiza out of the picture. Sorry, Gorka, if you're reading! So this is about as recent a photo as you'll get of Mr. Schifrin, in case anyone is curious.

I'm thrilled to join the many here who have offered their birthday greetings. Rather than focus on what we don't have, I'll add that I have shelves of his music, from film and TV scores to jazz piano to big band to concert works.

A few of my favorites:

Gillespiana (for Dizzy Gillespie)

The New Continent (also for Dizzy Gillespie)

Jazz Suite on the Mass Texts (for Paul Horn)

Rock Requiem

Che!

The Fox

Cool Hand Luke

For all your composers/arrangers check out his book on composing published by Hal Leonard.


The Cincinatti Kid

The Four Musketeers

Mission: Impossible

Mannix

Bullitt

Dirty Harry

The Venetian Affair

He's one of the world's most famous documentary filmmakers. I thought you looked like him.

Sartoris, thanks for posting your pictures. When I was a young teenager I learned a lot about jazz from my older brother; as an avid jazzbo he subscribed to Downbeat, and I vividly remember reading that Schifrin article from the issue displayed on your post.

My first interest in music was soundtracks. In the mid to late 1960s I had many LPs of Barry, Goldsmith, Quincy Jones, and Schifrin. When my brother saw my Schifrin soundtracks, he said "you may want to give this a listen"--and lent me the glorious Dizzy Gillespie album Gillespiana, a five-movement album-length composition for jazz quintet and large band with very unusual instrumentation. composed and arranged by Lalo, who was only twenty-eight!

Shortly thereafter, he bought me an album by alto sax great Cannonball Adderley that featured experimental works, one of which was Schifrin's "Dialogues for Jazz Quintet and Orchestra."

Happy birthday Lalo!

Writing about vinyl in the other thread reminds me about the excellent LP to MURDERER'S ROW, still no sign of that on LP which is a shame.

Oh boy, poor fellow, Lalo told me when I interviewed him back in 1998, he was a black belt in karate (I wonder if scoring Bruce Lee films got him interested in it?) - unless he told me that so I didn't ask awkward questions (as it was, he declined in no uncertain terms, to talk about Day of the Animals!)? big grin

He definitely has age/health related issues, bless him. Cherish his presence.
