Song of the Day #2094

Song of the Day: Chinatown (“Suite”) [YouTube link], composed by Jerry Goldsmith, is derived from my all-time favorite score by the maestro—and that’s saying something! This particular suite is performed live by the Young Metropole Orchestra. Here, the trumpeter is not Uan Ramsey, from the original 1974 neo noir (one of my favorite films of that decade), but Hans de Munnik, who does a superb job. On this date in 1929, the great Jerry Goldsmith was born. He left behind an innovative and influential cinematic musical legacy for the ages.
