The Magnificent Seven

Music historian / interviewee

Released by Fox

My old friend Michael Arrick asked me to contribute a 15-minute featurette about Elmer Bernstein and his now-classic score for this landmark 1960 Western. It was great fun, not only talking about my friend Elmer but taking apart the score and providing a little thoughtful analysis of the music. I am told that our 2006 piece has been added to the currently available Blu-Ray.
