Isham’s trumpet leads the audience through this mesmerizing story with a 100-piece English orchestra, recorded at London’s famous Abbey Road Studios. The tantalizingly lush, moody score truly becomes a character of its own for this romantically provocative film.One of the great film composers of today, but in the jazz tradition that almost got lost after Alex North, MARK ISHAM’S career spans two decades. Film composing for Mark began in 1983 with Walt Disney’s critically acclaimed film Never Cry Wolf. From that beginning Mark has gone on to score many award winning films, including the 2005 Academy Award winner for Best Picture Crash.
Other notable films include The Cooler, Life As A House, A River Runs Through It, Miracle, Point Break, Reversal Of Fortune, Blade, Nell, October Sky, Fly Away Home, and Of Mice And Men. Isham is also a well known trumpet player as well as jazz musician, solo instrumentalist and rock guest artist with such high-profile bands as the Rolling Stones. He is in constant demand as a trumpeter and has appeared as a guest musician on the last two Joni Mitchell albums and several Van Morrison records.
