Format: Audio CD
John Williams, Bernard Herrmann, Jerry Goldsmith and "Johnny-Come-Latelies" like James Horner and Danny Elfman, may get more recognition but Elmer Bernstein ranks among one of the great film scorers of all time. This disc samples some of his most memorable themes.
Beginning with the rousing Coplandlike like theme from "The Magnificent Seven", the compilation features a bevy of the familiar along with lesser-known but no less dynamic compositions.
Among my favorites are the jazz-influenced theme from "The Man with the Golden Gun", the sultry "Walk on the Wild Side", the lighthearted theme from "Ghostbusters", the opening theme/medley from "Hawaii" and the selection from the classic "The Ten Commandments".
Another find is the long-forgotten theme from the 60's television production "Hollywood and the Stars". This anthem harkens back to the days when movies were really something special and so were the people that made them.
Bernstein is indeed very special.

Everything "the G-man: says in the previous review is true. Bernstein was a master of movie music. I especially love "The Man with the Golden Arm" -- it got me interested in West Coast jazz in the latter part of the 1950s and I've been a fan ever since then. My favorites are the jazz-oriented themes, like "Golden Arm" and "Walk on the Wild Side". Too bad they didn't include his work from "Sweet Smell of Success". For memorable movie music, the very best ever is "The Magnificent Seven" and "The Great Escape". Highly recommended!

Don't Miss This One! March 4 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Elmer Bernstein is one of the most prolific and talented film composers ever, and some of his best soundtracks are on this CD. "To Kill a Mockingbird" will evoke images of the children in the film, Jem and Scout, to your mind. The soaring triumphant crescendos from "Hawaii" will bring tears to your eyes. I've often thought that the theme "Hollywood and the Stars" should be played at the Academy Award ceremony each year, because when I heard it, I thought it would be very fitting as a tribute to all the stars that had passed away, and it was very emotional. I wish that other Bernstein tracks were available in their entirety, such as "Desire Under the Elms". In the meantime, this one is excellent and one that will give you a great deal of enjoyment.

By George Perkins - Published on Amazon.com
If you do not have any of Elmer Bernstein's work and want a taste of the genius of his work. THIS IS THE CD/MP3's to get.

The best part of this specific set of recordings that the music is

#1). It's not just his music, he is also conducting the Royal Philharmonic Pops Orchestra in this recording.

#2). The orchestrations are truly beautiful.

#3). The liberties he takes with the themes (as opposed to the original recordings) make these sound even better.

This is a treasure of a performance and if you love his work, you would be foolish to avoid this.
