Song of the Day #1914

Song of the Day: Chinatown (“Soundtrack Suite”) [YouTube link], composed by Jerry Goldsmith, is a perfect complement to this 1974 neo-noir film, starring Jack Nicholson, Faye Dunaway, and John Huston as one of the sleaziest villains in cinema history. On this date in 1929, the great Jerry Goldsmith was born. This jazzy, haunting, evocative score is only one side of the prolific musical legacy that Goldsmith left behind.
