Book Excerpt of the Day

“[On Dirty Harry] Lalo Schifrin’s penchant for Latin percussion and throbbing bass lines provide a restless bed upon which tense orchestration writhes. Distorted guitar, angry brass and angular string sections riddle the eardrums like sonic shrapnel.”

– from Chapter 1: Crime Jazz & Felonious Funk of Kristopher Spencer’s Film and Television Scores, 1950-1979
