John Barry, R.I.P.

John Barry, the noted Academy and Grammy Award winning film composer, died suddenly yesterday of a heart attack. He was 77.

The British born Barry is best known for arranging the James Bond theme and scored the music in a dozen of the Bond films. He also scored the music for films such as Born Free, The Lion in Winter, King Kong, Out of Africa and Dances with Wolves.

I think Barry’s finest work was done in Midnight Cowboy especially the “Midnight Cowboy Theme” featuring Toots Thieleman’s unmistakable harmonica.
