Jare et Burlingame 3Upon the death of French composer Maurice Jarre, the Los Angeles Times asked me to write about his music and its impact, both on the films he scored and popular culture generally. Here‘s that piece. I liked Maurice very much, and it was a pleasure to tape a long video “oral history” of him for the Film Music Foundation.
