Saturday At The Movies

If it’s pour­ing with rain or blow­ing up a storm where you are, what bet­ter thing to do than enjoy a movie – or in this case, a movie or tele­vi­sion sound­track or two? Well, that’s just what we have for you today.

jb-cd-1And we are fea­tur­ing a great and (fair­ly) new album by Bri­an Ben­nett of the Shad­ows — Shad­ow­ing John Bar­ry – which includes lead­ing gui­tarists per­form­ing John Bar­ry’s music with band and orches­tra.  Bri­an Ben­nett says:

The album fea­tures some won­der­ful per­for­mances by Peter Framp­ton, John Par­ri­cel­li, Ray Rus­sell, Mark Knopfler, War­ren Ben­nett, Mark Grif­fiths, Bri­an Lock­ing, Hank Mar­vin and Bruce Welch. Some won­der­ful string arrange­ments by Kevin Tow­nend and War­ren Ben­nett… It was John Bar­ry who got me inter­est­ed in com­pos­ing for film when I toured with him in the late 50’s. I’d like to think he would have approved of our inter­pre­ta­tions of his fab­u­lous music.”

More details here.

Tracks from fea­tured albums usu­al­ly appear a few min­utes after the top of the hour.

Along with a few oth­er recent releas­es, you’ll hear a bunch of favourites, clas­sics and oth­er film and TV music going back to the dawn of the genre. There’s per­haps a slight bias towards SF and F, but it’s only slight. Pick up some pop­corn and some­thing wet and fizzy and set­tle back in the best seat in the house – your own.
