Love the sentiment, but don’t think I’ll take advice from Mr. Eastwood! Loved his early movies and then he kind of went way off the rails.
De gustibus. I don’t think Clint has made a bad film.
Anyhow. It’s just nice to see a mainstream outlet suggest that music is anything but a background event.
As to Clint? I just loved the photograph.
I think this fellow knew how to enjoy some music
Seriously cool music, particularly jazz, has crept into the score of some of his films and was a central theme in one: Play Misty for Me. Not a coincidence.
Mr. Eastwood is a musician, composer, and audiophile. He wrote the scores to at least a half-dozen of his films. There is a scoring stage named after him. He received an honorary doctorate from the Berklee College of Music.
The man has chops.
I also understood he owned one of the largest private Jazz LP collections in the world. I think a fire destroyed many of his LPs. Not sure what the article discusses, behind a paywall for me.
And according to a cousin, a model who did a photo shoot with him shortly after he landed the Rawhide gig, a very nice guy. It’s been over a half century, but as I recall the proofs were terrific.
I tend to delete the tracking stuff, but I guess that sometimes frees it from the paywall.
