Absolutely agree about Ken Wannberg, who, IMO, did a knockout job on the Canadian thriller "The Silent Partner" (which I just saw this past weekend), interpolating Oscar Peterson's thematic material into his very suspenseful underscore. I think he was very talented and could have had much more of a feature film composing career.
Indeed. Amazing score. I wonder if BSX could release it as they produced several great CDs of Mr. Wannberg's music.
For some reason, Wannberg scored several Canadian films in the late 70's to early 80's and everyone of them was fantastic. I'm guessing it had to do with the generous tax credits handed out by the Canadian tax dollars. If that was the case, it was one of those rare times where the bucks were spent for a good purpose.
