John Barry

February 14, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

I’ve just found out that John  Barry died whilst I was away snowboarding in the mountains last week.

Very, very sad news indeed. His contribution to British music has been phenomenal: Midnight Cowboy, Born Free, Zulu, Enigma, Out of Africa, Dances with Wolves and the Ipcress File (that haunting piano as Mr. Caine walks through the London Streets) are all his, and there are more here…

John Barry – Moviola

Other than the muisc he is most famous for, the various James Bond themes and soundtracks, I think perhaps my favorite tune is the Theme from the Persuaders. Its truly a timeless classic sounding as strong now as it did 40 years ago…
