  1. It’s unfortunate that Maurice Murphy had an untimely death about 10 years ago. I’m sure he would have been a fantastic guest.
  2. Absolutely incredible interview. It brought me back in time quite a few years, about 31, when I first saw BOT4OJ in theatres, and reminded me why I play trumpet today.
  3. As much as I love the Solo Deluxe release, the fact that HTTYD has the full orchestral score to match the Varese deluxe release adds just enough to put it on top.
  4. If the rumour is true that an Orville season 2 set is coming out on Friday, I’ll be pretty happy.
  5. What if Mahler calls it a march ? 😃
  6. Actually a march could also be in 4/4, 6/8 or 12/8 😃🎺🎶 Forgot to add smiley emoji, so it doesn’t sound arrogant, which it wasn’t intended to.
  7. Bach cantata #51 1st aria that I recorded (trumpet) for our orchestra online series.
  8. Superman. But the march from Midway isn’t too shabby.
  9. Cool find. But I’ll wait to see what Chris comes up with next. It’s really cool that people like Chris and the guys at Omni are giving us access to this material. I have Batman and How to train your dragon from Omni, and they’re incredible. I wouldn’t hesitate to buy anything from them again. Just waiting to see what’s next.
  10. Krull might not have as much recognizable melodies, but stylistically, it’s completely unoriginal. Just look up Richard Strauss, Gustav Mahler, etc... One thing that comes to mind from Apollo 13. Launch theme, complete rip-off of a melody from a french composer’s (Duruflé I think, played the piece a few years ago) Requiem. Can’t remember the exact part, but it’s the same melody, even in the same key. Anybody remember Troy? Well Shostakovitch 5th symphony is in there, note for note. He even stole from JG...which he didn’t appreciate if what I read is accurate.
  11. Schumann 3rd symphony 1st mvt, but faster. As far as land before time, it’s a Prokofiev carbon copy. All in all, Horner was not a very original composer. Williams definitely borrowed stylistic ideas from classical composers, but never as overtly as Horner did. There are so many examples. Can’t say I’m a fan.
  12. Here’s my version of With malice toward none. Recorded about a month ago.
  13. You’re not one of the users I was talking about.
