Trevor Jones, how we miss you

Post by Farkle » Tue 24 Apr 2018 12:58

He had a brief, but shining spot in film music, during the 80's high fantasy era. Loved his work on The Dark Crystal, and then did a TV mini-series, called Merlin.

He was also one of the composers for Last of the Mohicans, which is a lovely score... I think he kind of gently got sidelined as the more hybrid sound took off. But, man, could he compose! :)

My favorite soundtrack from him, for a movie I also love.

A half of this Farkle Friday is dedicated to Dark Crystal:

I enjoyed it a lot with a Glenlivet speyside scotch. (You'll soon discover my obsession: "which drink accompanies this music the best?")
