Hommage to Artie Kane (1929-2022)

I became aware of his legendary name when I read that he had to conduct some sessions for John Williams during JURASSIC PARK because Williams had some back issue and had to rest.

 

RIP.

I think people need to learn more about Artie Kane.

 

This shadow worker, this magician was involed as a pianist, score copist, arranger and conductor on SO MANY scores since the 60s, and for SO MANY composers.

 

A page of film music history is being turned.

 

I think the best place to actually see all his "credits" on film scores is Discogs.

 

Then Imdb seems to patch some wholes too.

 

Just to name a few scores he was involved in... Well... It will make a great playlist for today.

He conducted a lot of great scores during the 90s, not only Jurassic Park but also a lot of stuff from Elfman and JNH.

 

However, during the 2000s, they stopped working with him and instead chose Pete Anthony to conduct their scores. I don't know why... Maybe Artie retired?

RIP, and because it fits the hot day i'm going to enjoy his appropriately aggressive low-end piano playing on this appropriately aggressive western score.
