Yeah, really liked the track Can You Dig It? Just wished it was actually used in that form in the film rather than solely as a cool end titles. I know it shares the same main melody that is used in the movie, but stylistically it works so much better than, say, the main title.

A piece I've been listening to lately is by John Williams from his score to the film Lincoln. ON the soundtrack it's part of a track that is listed as 'The Peterson House and Finale', but in concert is more commonly called 'With Malice Towards None.'

The score features Chris Martin on trumpet, who is currently principal trumpet for the New York Philharmonic, though when he played on the film he was principal trumpet for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.

These are Chris Martin's words on how he came to record the track:  

"John Williams had an idea that since that Lincoln was from Illinois and since Illinois was the first state to ratify the thirteenth amendment, that it would be appropriate for an orchestra from Illinois to record the music... And he has a long relationship with Chicago Symphony and so my understanding is he pitched it to Spielberg and he was all in. So that's how the recording happened. And then the piece, literally one day I got an email from his publisher saying 'Hey, John wrote this piece for you, let me send you a draft and see what you think.' Er, OK, that sounds great and, yeah, it's beautiful and I've played it a bunch of time, mostly with my wife actually on piano."

Here's Chris Martin playing it with his wife: LINK

and here is Chris with the maestro himself: LINK

I love the singing tone that Chris produces.

Danny Elfman.

My son has a military game on his tablet

music for him to play by so, I did
these...

Goldmith

Main Theme to FLIGHT OF THE INTRUDER by
Basil Poledouris

Entire score to THE ROCK by Hans Zimmer

After listening to all of this he puts the
tablet down and asks, "Daddy, can we watch

I just purchased an Intrada 2-disc special edition of John Williams' JAWS 2 [1978].

For me, the summer isn't the same without blasting some John Williams around the house, or in the car!

Not recent, but...John Barry's "Somewhere in Time".  So relaxing. :)

Today, SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE. I think its
probably Williams' greatest score.
Considering how much I love his STAR WARS
and RAIDERS score, that's saying
something.

Now listening to INCREDIBLES 2, by Michael Giacchino...

If some fans like to say that the two INCREDIBLES films are better "Fantastic Four" movies than the actual FF movies we got stuck with, than I'll go one better and say that Giacchino's scores are two of the greatest stealth JAMES BOND soundtracks ever made!

For me it's been SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE by John Williams for the past 30 years. I don't see that changing anytime soon.
