The latest CD from Intrada features the original LP tracks (originally featured on their Elmer Bernstein: The Ava Collection set) from two early '60s scores by Elmer Bernstein, his masterpiece TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD and WALK ON THE WILD SIDE.

La-La Land has announced their October releases, due this week: the fourth volume of their GOLDSMITH AT 20TH series, pairing two aviation-related 70s scores, the Pearl Harbor epic TORA! TORA! TORA! and the sentimental barnstorming drama ACE ELI AND RODGER OF THE SKIES; and a re-release of their expanded edition of John Carpenter and Shirley Walker's score for the 1996 sci-fi sequel, ESCAPE FROM L.A.

Silva has announced an unexpected treat for John Barry fans -- the first-ever commercial release of his only score for director Blake Edwards, for the 1974 romantic spy drama THE TAMARIND SEED, pairing Omar Sharif and Julie Andrews (lthough it's far from being a 007 movie, it does have an unmistakable title sequence by Bond great Maurice Binder, which looks a little like what 007 titles might look like if Bond had a desk job)

The latest Deluxe Edition from the Varese Sarabande CD Club is a two-disc release of Graeme Revell's music for the 1994 cult hit THE CROW, featuring an expanded version of one of the composer's most popular scores.

The latest releases from Music Box are a CD featuring music from three films scored by Philippe Sarde and directed by Pierre Granier-Deferre -- ADIEU POULET (The French Detective), L'AMI DE VINCENT and L'ETOILE DU NORD; Philippe Rombi's score for the new thriller BOITE NOIRE; and a remastered reissue of the score for the 1982 comedy DEUX HEURES MOINS LE QUART AVANT JESUS CHRIST, composed by Jean Yanne and Raymond Allesandrini

The latest soundtrack release from Quartet is a re-release of their two-disc edition of Jerry Goldsmith's Oscar-nominated score for BASIC INSTINCT

I think the best thing about this week in movie music is that though I'd never heard of composer Jongnic Bontemps until now, he has two movies opening in Los Angeles theaters this week, Last Night in Rozzie and My Name Is Pauli Murray.

The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences has announced this year's winners in the Creative Arts Emmys, including the following music categories:

La-La Land has announced two new releases for the week of September 14 - an expanded, two-disc edition of one of James Horner's finest scores, for director Edward Zwick's 1989 Civil War epic GLORY, starring Matthew Broderick, Morgan Freeman, Cary Elwes, Andre Braugher, and an Oscar-winning Denzel Washington; and an expanded and remastered version of one of Elmer Bernstein's great comedy scores, for the Bill Murray vehicle STRIPES.

Varese Sarabande has announced two new Deluxe Edition score releases from their CD Club: Jerry Goldsmith's score for the 1992 period drama LOVE FIELD, which earned Michelle Pfeiffer a Best Actress nomination, featuring an expanded version of Goldsmith's score (previously released on CD by Varese) as well as the additional music by Bill Payne that replaced several of Goldsmith's cues in the final film; and a two-disc edition of the soundtrack for DANTE'S PEAK, the 1997 volcano thriller (not to be confused with the competing Volcano), featuring the score by John Frizzell which includes two themes composed for the film by James Newton Howard (who had originally signed on as the film's composer until a scheduling conflict intervened) as well as cues co-written with Jeff Atmajian, Brad Dechter, Steve Porcaro and John Van Tongeren. 

The latest release from Caldera features Zbigniew Preisner's score for the brand-new religious biopic MAN OF GOD (definitely not to be confused with the just-released Ted Bundy movie No Man of God).

Dragon's Domain has announced their latest batch of new releases - WEBS AND OTHER WONDERS, a collection of music for nature documentaries composed by John Scott; THE DAVID SPEAR COLLECTION VOL. 2, featuring two scores composed by the veteran composer-orchstrator, Mortuary Academy (1988) and Kiss Daddy Goodbye (1981); and a re-release of the score for MEETINGS WITH REMARKABLE MEN, with Laurence Rosenthal adapting the music of Thomas De Hartmann.

The latest release from Intrada is a re-issue of Bruce Broughton's re-recording of Miklos Rozsa's Oscar-nominated score for JULIUS CAESAR, the 1953 film version of Shakespeare's play directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz starring Marlon Brando, James Mason, Louis Calhern, Greer Garson, John Gielgud and Deborah Kerr.

Intrada's Kickstarter campaign to raise enough money to re-record two never-released Jerry Goldsmith scores, BLACK PATCH and THE MAN, has proved a success, and the label hopes to have the resulting CD out in June of next year.

Varese Sarabande is expected to announce two new limited edition CD Club releases today.


Julius Caesar (re-recording/re-issue) - Miklos Rozsa - Intrada
