  2. Hi JWFan, I'm trying to locate where the original scores to Rhythm in Motion are located. Sources told me that UNT had them, but the librarian didn't know. Hoping to analyze them as part of a jazz research grant at my university. Cheers!
  3. Moochin About Records has been releasing a series of jazz collections showcasing jazz music used in films, not compilations of jazz pieces used in movies, but scores specifically composed by jazz musicians and film composers alike for movies and TV series. Jazz On Film...Crime Jazz features scores from various TV shows from 1950s and 60s in the style that has become called "crime jazz" which was the mode of the day to express the dark, gritty and suspenseful world of these detective shows and thrillers. What makes this 8 CD compilation especially interesting to John Williams fans is that it features music from Checkmate (the original LP programme already previously released by FSM) and M-Squad (this album has 3 selections composed by Williams) but there are other quite familiar composers among the people featured here like Henry Mancini, George Dunning and Elmer Bernstein. Here are the scores presented on this compilation. 77 Sunset Strip Warren Barker Hawaiian Eye Warren Barker M~Squad Stanley Wilson Staccato Elmer Bernstein Mikey Spillanes Mike Hammer Stan Purdy Orchestra Music From Mike Hammer Skip Martin Checkmate Johnny Williams Shotgun Slade Stanley Wilson Orchestra Peter Gunn Henry Mancini Mr Lucky & Mr Lucky Goes Latin Henry Mancini The Naked City George Dunning The Untouchables Nelson Riddle Richard Diamond Pete Rugolo Bourbon St Beat Don Ralke
  4. Dave Brubeck, a jazz musician who attained pop-star acclaim with recordings such as "Take Five" and "Blue Rondo a la Turk," died Wednesday morning at Norwalk Hospital, in Norwalk, Connecticut. Brubeck was one day short of his 92nd birthday. He died of heart failure, en route to "a regular treatment with his cardiologist." http://www.chicagotr...,7126256.column Time MOTY 1954 Kennedy Honors, 2009
