At the dawn of the 90s the trip hop wave flooded Great Britain with electro influenced by Jamaican music and rap beats.
With dreamy rhythms and oppressive atmospheres, Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Morcheeba and various others invented a futuristic kind of dark soul music which was sometimes very cinematographic.
Time to zoom in on 10 albums from a genre with a fuzzy outline but a very clear influence. In the family of funk Prince Rogers Nelson was a genre all by himself.
In 40 years of career, he managed to mix the legacy of the founding fathers James Brown, Sly Stone and George Clinton with influences like rock 'n' roll, electro and even jazz.
An exuberant and stunning groove that shone mainly between and Composing for the screen demands a taste and a skill for all styles: from disco for a nightclub scene, to a madrigal for a period drama, the cinema musician has to be ready for anything. And John Barry - was surely one of the greatest soundtrack composers, and one who was able to immerse himself fully into all genres of music and film.
Categories: All Back. When Faith made his first film, Beat Girl , Barry composed, arranged and conducted the score, his first. His music was later released as the UK's first soundtrack album. Barry also composed the music for another Faith film, Never Let Go also , orchestrated the score for Mix Me a Person , and composed, arranged and conducted the score for The Amorous Prawn also In , Barry transferred to Ember Records , where he produced albums as well as arranging them.
These achievements caught the attention of the producers of a new film called Dr. No who were dissatisfied with a theme for James Bond given to them by Monty Norman. Barry was hired and the result was one of the most famous signature tunes in film history, the " James Bond Theme ". Credit goes to Monty Norman, see here. When the producers of the Bond series engaged Lionel Bart to score the next James Bond film From Russia with Love , they discovered that Bart could neither read nor write music.
Though Bart wrote a title song for the film, the producers remembered Barry's arrangement of the James Bond Theme and his composing and arranging for several films with Adam Faith. This was the turning point for Barry, and he subsequently won five Academy Awards and four Grammy Awards , with scores for, among others, Born Free , The Lion in Winter , Midnight Cowboy for which he did not receive an on-screen credit.
Barry was often cited as having had a distinct style which concentrated on lush strings and extensive use of brass. However he was also an innovator, being one of the first to employ synthesizers in a film score On Her Majesty's Secret Service , also ,  and to make wide use of pop artists and songs in Midnight Cowboy.
Barry would often watch films and would note down with pen and paper what worked or what did not. Barry composed the theme for the TV series The Persuaders! The theme was a hit single in many European countries including France, Germany, and the Benelux states , contributing to the cult status of the series in Europe, and the record featured Barry's The Girl with the Sun in Her Hair on the B side, an instrumental piece featured in a long running TV advert for Sunsilk shampoo.
In , the University of York conferred an honorary degree on Barry, and in he was named an Honorary Freeman of the City of York. The album features a number of songs Barry wrote in collaboration with his lyricist friend, Don Black. After the success of Dr. No , Barry was hired to compose and perform eleven of the next fourteen James Bond films Monty Norman is legally recognised as the composer of the " James Bond Theme ".
In his tenure with the film series, Barry's music, variously brassy and moody, achieved very wide appeal.
The music and lyrics for From Russia with Love' s title song were written by Lionel Bart , whose musical theatre credits included Oliver! Barry also contributed indirectly to the soundtrack of the spoof version of Casino Royale : his Born Free theme appears briefly in the opening sequence.
