Default Enrico Intra - Pop Jazz, Up, Marty (1978)

QX, I haven’t managed to identify the baseball tune nor the Joan Rivers entrance tune. If you haven’t either then I’m thinking it’s got to be freaking difficult. But like a human with a bone (Trollheart will get that one), I’ll keep my ears open.

Thanks to everyone on MB (mods, oldies and newbies) for inspiring me to carry on. I love and cherish this community.

To ring out the year, here’s an album I’ve become very fond of. Searched for the CD for my car, but I can only find it on vinyl (haven't a clue if it's on spotify). So I’m going to have to buy a turntable and get the record for better sound quality. Reminds me a lot of Madlib.

I’ve always been fascinated by a specific type of sound produced by American arrangers between 1975-1978. Themes by Allyn Ferguson & Jack Elliot (known for the Charlies Angels and Starsky and Hutch themes), Billy Goldenberg’s Kojak and Columbo, Oliver Nelson’s Six Million Dollar Man, Mark Snow’s Hart to Hart, Pat Williams’ Streets of San Francisco or Rhythm Heritage’s Theme From S.W.A.T. to name a few. Clearly I’ve missed a lot of other composers of that era such as Schifrin, Mancini, Grusin, J. J. Johnson, Silvestri, Gil Mellé...

But particularly the Allyn Ferguson & Jack Elliot compositions often seem to have a great sound. Variations around a main theme, lots of horn and string arrangements, muted trumpets, fluttering flute runs, bassoon, scratchy wah guitar, and a heavy dose of percussion (including a lot of triangle which I haven’t heard a lot outside that four-year span). Maybe it’s the child in me that refuses to grow up, but I just can’t let go of those few years (even if I wasn't around by then, just).

Some hard working soul has put together as best they can the below soundtrack for “Bnack”, involving Quincy Jones. I’m still trying to find out what “Bnack” is.

“Bnack (score suite #1; Allyn Ferguson and Jack Elliott)”

Another enjoyable song is Oliver Nelson’s 1975 Six Million Dollar Man theme with Richard 'Groove' Holmes on organ.
