LAWMAN (CD)
Composed by: Jerry Fielding

MINT - SEALED

Original 1971 soundtrack from intense Michael Winner western with solid cast led by Burt Lancaster, Robert Ryan, Robert Duvall, many others. Unyielding pursuit without mercy by title character inspires Jerry Fielding to fashion long-winding main theme for strings over unrelenting bed of complex harmonies. Action sequences carry aggressive bursts of dissonant brass, reflective sequences get haunting solo colors from clarinet, flute. Fielding balances between intense music uncharacteristic of traditional western scoring and transparent, relective music showcasing strings with intricate percussion detail. Only once does Fielding nod towards convention, offering some rousing Copland-ish razzle dazzle with "Branding the Cattle". In an astonishingly detailed recording (made by Richard Lewzey in London) Fielding gets dynamic sound, particularly from his brass. At the end of the branding sequence, for example, listeners can pinpoint a virtuoso figure being tossed about by one, then two, then three separate trumpets in a tour-de-force display. Stunning writing, exciting playing! Although relatively brief at just over half an hour, Fielding's complete score manages a stunning degree of depth, melodic development and variety of color. Conductor credit in the film goes to David Whitaker per union requirements at the time but sessions were indeed helmed by the composer. This Intrada Special Collection release offers a world premiere of the complete score in dynamic stereo sound, mastered from MGM's original session elements. Jerry Fielding conducts. Limited edition of 1500 copies.

SYNOPSIS - In "Lawman," Burt Lancaster is Jered Maddox, a dedicated marshal with an inflexible adherence to upholding the law at all costs. Riding into a nearby town to pick up a group of local carousers who, during a drunken spree, killed an old man, Maddox meets up with Vincent Bronson (Lee J. Cobb). Bronson is the local town boss, and Maddox discovers that the men he is looking for work for him. Unlike most western heavies, Maddox, although he is powerful and unscrupulous, abhors violence. But violence is something Maddox cultivates. A major confrontation between the reluctant Bronson and the intransigent Maddox builds - particularly when Maddox enlists the help of weak-willed local sheriff Cotton Ryan (Robert Ryan). 1971
