Ars superior est vita hominum.
"We pop out and come into the world and music is there. We didn't invent it - it's all organised in the atmosphere by divinity or whatever. It's a miracle." - John Williams-
I think music is a stream of some kind. It could be blood. It could be water. It could be ether. Whatever it is it seems to be a living, organic force that’s in motion, that serves humanity and is part of humanity and part of what describes us as humans. We sing, play, dance, all the things that we do. And there is a vibrant and great literature we have been given. ... As musicians, we join the stream. We swim in the stream with all the other millions of music makers. It’s a life force, a strong one, surrounding us and we are part of it. -John Williams-

The Metropool Orkest is one of the most versatile out there, but they have their roots in Jazz, which showed in the program.
A lot of jazzy, funky and cool tracks. I've heard symphony orchestra's doing The Bond Theme, even the LSO. And it was always a bit formal. But the Metropool really captured the big band, jazz aspect.
Highlight was Theme From Shaft. I listened to that while wearing black sunglasses...indoors.
Morricone's Cinema Paradiso is beautiful, so is Rosza's Spellbound.
Each cue was accompanied by clips of the film, not sure about that.
Just occurred that they did not play anything post 1980.

Yes I heard from my lady that Jazz is their's bread and butter so this would be nice.
