  2. Hi to all JWFN members. It is great to see such dedication and knowledge to the man who has scored more than just the movies. On that note The History Press and I would like to share word of a new book published now in the UK and September 1st 2018 in the US. John Williams is the spine and soul of this book. Mark O’Connell didn’t want to be Luke Skywalker. He wanted to be one of the mop-haired kids on the Star Wars toy commercials. And he would have done it had his parents had better pine furniture and a condo in California. Star Wars, Jaws, Close Encounters of th
  3. Henry Mancini recorded an album of film music in 1976 with the London Symphony Orchestra which included a Disaster Movie Suite made up of Earthquake, The Towering Inferno and Jaws. While I knew of the album I had never heard any of it, but noticed today that someone has posted a few selections on YouTube. Given that it features rare cover versions of Johnny's two 1974 disaster main titles, I thought you might enjoy hearing it if it is new to you too. I think it's rather good.
  4. Mike Matessino justed posted this on his facebook page: "For ---'s sake, tomorrow's the Fourth of July! I got to do a full essay on the music for this which the Maestro himself said he was very impressed with. Very humbling to get to work on these things." Details from Monodotees page: "One of the finest achievements in film music and quite possibly the most iconic score of all time, John Williams’ score to JAWS is an absolute essential for soundtrack collectors. While the Grammy-winning 1975 MCA album was a re-recording, Mondo’s 2XLP set presents th

  8. In the first shark attack, Chrissie's last scene, there is a moment when she is hugging on to the bell tower buoy. The music changes at this point and there is a brief utterance of tuned percussion which to me sounds like a Gamelan. Does anyone know if this is what Williams used? If not, what was it?

  12. I'm currently in a music class in college and my professor used Jaws as his introduction to melody (this is a more general class, not a music major class). He said that the tuba player was famous for playing the two noes (E-F). I remember looking this up before and reading that the tuba player played a high-register tuba. Now in the score, I recall the Jaws E-F theme being played on strings. I always called the "Shark's Theme" the three note phrase played in the first few seconds after the initial "dun dun". Am I wrong in saying that this is the Tuba melody that Tommy Johnson is famous f
