In 1995, Bill Frisell released an instrumental album composed for Buster Keaton's films High Sign and One Week. The disc acts as the live accompaniment to the silent films, much like seeing them in their original release form. High Sign was the first film Keaton made independently, and portrays a director as a loner looking for work. One Week was his first publicly released film (and one of the top grossing hits of the 1920s), and is about a man who receives a build-it-yourself house from his new bride. Both films include some classic Buster Keaton moments, including a chase through a series of trapdoors and mishaps due to incorrect homebuilding directions. The original soundtrack recording includes Kermit Driscoll on acoustic and electric basses and Joey Baron on percussion. Frisell and his band performed the music to all three films at St. Ann's in Brooklyn, NY, in May of 1993. The warmly recorded albums are adventurous and evocative. Critics described Frisell's inspired episodic work with Keaton's films as "deceptively modest" and "melancholy Americana." These rich narrative accompaniments are essential for students of film music and evangelists of the power of the score to enrich and enlighten visual art. The group also wrote an original score to the Keaton film Go West.

The Stylish Henry Mancini

Sophistication, humour, sensitivity… These are the words that often come to mind when describing Henry Mancini’s music. 23 years after his death, he is still seen as a major and influential pop composer. No doubt because, in addition to his glossy and light works for which he is renowned (notably Breakfast at Tiffany’s and The Pink Panther), he also knew how to display the complexity of his musical language in more tormented compositions.

Miles Davis, Fingers in The Plug Socket

In 1968, Miles Davis succumbed to the charm of the electricity fairy. Bewitched by the psychedelic and funky revolutions of Jimi Hendrix and Sly Stone, the trumpet player made a radical change and, in passing, changed jazz too.

Peter Thomas in Orbit

In Germany they have their own Michel Legrand: his name is Peter Thomas! His eccentric film music left its mark on a whole generation of viewers in the 60s and 70s and since the 90s he has often been cited and sampled by young pop groups. The cult composer passed away on May 17th, 2020. We met him three years earlier, on the dawn of his 92nd birthday.
