Options July 21, 2020: RIP Johnny Mandel
Morricone Island pays tribute to jazz trumpeter and trombonist turned composer Johnny Mandel who died at 94 on June 29. Mandel's debut film score for 1958's "I Want To Live!" garnered his first of 17 Grammy nominations before penning "The Shadow of Your Smile" for 1965's "The Sandpiper" and "Suicide Is Painless" for 1970's "M*A*S*H*." Other highlights include "Point Blank," "The Last Detail," "Freaky Friday," "Being There" and "Caddyshack."

Ironic richly arranged noir Cool Jazz will do nicely.

well dang, if this isn't groovy!

Imagine what this would be without this music.
Avatar 7:11pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Underscores (pun?) to me how informed we were about Jazz & Musics by soundtrack & half aware of it @ best.

My friend had an relative who drank...drano or something like that. I'm told it was not painless.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25pm deborah:

Loved Shadow of Your Smile and had a teen crush on Richard Burton and the film The Sandpiper. Still love the song.

Hola Devon!

Hola MartiniBomb. You all are killing it in PDX!!

Hah! I'm not that far from some of it and can hear it going off at night.

I just saw a thing where U.S. Attorney Timothy Garrison says the feds they're sending to Kansas City MI will be identifiable. Well, it's nice to get the bare minimum of what one would expect in a democracy.

this is when Spalding drank the swill before blowing chunks through the open sunroof

The marina scene is where they're all smoking weed, Doctor Beeper says "Hey man, save me a toke!" and Czervik wrecks Smails's new sloop (the Flying Wasp).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm ultradamno:

I remember that show. The closeness really got uncomfortable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:56pm ultradamno:

A whole band looking up album cover seems to have become a thing of the past.
  7:56pm Martinibomb:

Thanks for the Mandel tribute. Take care of yer self, Devon.
