I listened to Jones presser today, he's snug as a bug in TN. Only way he's available to WV is if he tanks-and that won't happen in the Dana tanking timeline. RR returning would require laser butt repair for much of the fanbase. He's an innovator and arguably changed the whole cfb landscape, but pers...

Watching those three sit together & laugh is heartening. Most of these docs can't get the band members in the same time zone.
I'll second The Eagles, but put a few hours aside-and it's exhibit A of guys not wanting to be in the same room.

Effects & seamless shots were mindblowing. The score unlike anything I'd heard before (basically serving as sound effects) also mindblowing, to me anyway.
Clooney was stupid, his dialogue was even more stupid. Ed Harris as the mission control voice was conspicuous...and stupid. I thought Bullock ...
| Music Board|| re: What are your favorite songs containing brass? - Backinthe615 on 7/10/14 at 8:47 pm|
A couple that aren't out front, but awesome. Floyd's Comfortably Numb & Good To Be King by Petty (on the fade). Hearty, warm arrangements. Petty may have been giving them a nod on that.
And, yep I'll say it- Mayer has used brass pretty cool since his debut. Can't Help Myself is a great track.

Some choices between The Band & Van. Maybe Into the Mystic & Great Divide. I loved the smaller, drunkerd sections both used.

An effective score can be like a good haircut. If the barber did a good job, nobody may have even noticed. Not that I don't appreciate the big stuff, too-but if viewers don't leave humming the theme, it doesn't necessarily mean the composer failed, or diminish the role of the music.
For tv, since...
