Ep. 60 - John Williams & John Powell's 'Solo: A Star Wars Story'
John Williams • Action, Adventure, Music, Sci-Fi, 03-May-2021
This clip features three cues from the Deluxe Edition of the soundtrack, featuring "Meet Han (1M1)” composed by John Williams & John Powell, with the two others ("Bunk / Proxima", "Corellia Chase") composed by John Powell. One can say it must be exceedingly difficult to follow in the footsteps of John Williams, especially with Star Wars, but Powell's score is nothing less than incredible. In fact, it was one of our favorite scores of that entire year. With a fun, dynamic, and masterful composition, Powell knocks it out of the park. Enjoy these three cues back-to-back in the first ten minutes of the film!
