⦿Elmer Bernstein – ‘Hollywood & the Stars’ theme

The memorable beautiful theme by Elmer Bernstein for the tv show ‘Hollywood and the Stars’, 1963-64;  also used for a time at the Academy Awards.  A lovely piece of music that so many remember and love.

  To me it evokes a haunting melancholy,  yet at the same time a majestic grandeur..
Bernstein was a prolific composer, with 200+ well-known film & television themes and scores in 50+ years, for a wide scope of projects : dramas, comedies and westerns — the iconic Magnificent Seven theme, for one.   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elmer_Bernstein

⦿ Glenn Miller – 1940s music

Before my time but appreciated  – it’s good music !  The way I came to embrace Glenn Miller’s music was from seeing that 1954 movie on tv — The Glenn Miller Story, with Jimmy Stewart as Miller.
I actually went out to a record store the next day,  to buy a Glenn Miller album…  a surprize to myself as a young  adult rock-n-roller.  Great music lives on.
.
I really like ‘At Last’ (w/Ray Eberle),  recorded before Etta James’ version…a strange song of happiness but with a melancholy tune,   and  the harmonies of  ‘Perfidia’.
