Ep. 59 - James Newton Howard's 'Wyatt Earp'
James Newton Howard • Adventure, Biography, Crime, Music, 28-Apr-2021
We absolutely love this classic James Newton Howard score, which is filled with beautiful orchestral swells and adventure motifs. "The Wagon Chase" is wonderful in that it goes from a poignant moment between young Wyatt and his father (the great Gene Hackman) to a present day wagon chase getaway. The contrast in melody mixes perfectly together, which shows James Newton Howard's versatility and genius as a composer. Enjoy this one!
