1 - HOPKINS, KENNY
- THE HUSTLER - (LP)
The Hustler was the first truly iconic film of Paul Newmans career. It was nominated for nine academy awards: best picture, actor, actress, director, screenplay, cinematography, art direction and two for best supporting actor. The beautiful Jazz score finally re-released on vinyl, is by the composer Kenyon Hopkins (Baby Doll, 12 Angry Men, The Fugitive Kind).A great and much underrated composer of jazz-inflected film scores and musical portraits. Hopkins worked in television beginning in the mid-1950s and branched out into film scoring soon after.Hopkins was particularly adept at using jazz themes, rhythms, and orchestrations in his scores, often paralleling the down-and-out subjects and settings on screen with what Basic Hip has called, "smoky,gritty, rotten-to-the-core jazz."
