Hello,   Some of you are already aware of this, but I want to spread the news to every JWFan here:   After a few months working on it on and off, I'm now ready to launch this side

https://thelegacyofjohnwilliams.com/2020/05/25/star-wars-roundtable-podcast/   Hope you'll like this one, guys.

New audio interview with Conrad Pope, talking about the music and the legacy of John Williams, the art form of film music and his life and career in the Hollywood film music community. It’s a fun one!

That was another brilliant episode @TownerFan! Such lovely stories and memories from Jim Self, who is indeed a musical legend himself and who was so very graciously appreciative of John Williams and his music. Keep these wonderful interviews coming Maurizio! 🙂

This is another great episode, guys. Lots of great stories and memories from a true legend among studio musicians!

 

Awesome work as always @TownerFan

Also, great to see that the music selections include a concert I attended :)

Sergio Carolino (the soloist performing in the exceprt of the Tuba Concert featured in the episode) studied with Jim Self, so I thought it made sense. There are many other recordings of the Concerto I could have used, but I love the energy and the virtuosity of Carolino's performance.

I don't have much to add other than it was a real honour and privilege to talk with such an iconic musician who we JW fans all admire so much. I hope you will enjoy, gents!

Can't wait to listen to this. I was hoping for a pocast with Tim since a long time. Thanks!

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.

I definitely plan to talk with LSO members too, yes, especially some of the former ones from the 77-83 era who are still around.

 

I already have a roster of guests scheduled, including composers and other very interesting people :)

 

 

So happy you liked it, Richard. Thank you for your ongoing support!

It’s unfortunate that Maurice Murphy had an untimely death about 10 years ago. I’m sure he would have been a fantastic guest.

@TownerFan Sorry if this has already been asked, but are you planning to interview members of the LSO during or after the LA series as well? I would love to hear all the questions you would ask them.

On May the 4th Sarah Willis did a skype session with hornists from all three Star Wars trilogies. It was very interesting, especially the old stories!

I finally listened to that Tim Morrison episode. Wonderful stuff. There might be trumpet players who can play louder or higher than Mr. Morrison but not many who can play so beautifully, with heart and soul those singing melodies. And that legato!! Well, he started with a french horn! 😎😎😎
