John Adams Suite

John Adams Suite
Music by Rob Lane

This suite is from the HBO mini-series about one of our least understood Presidents.

Scored by Rob Lane who is a very busy composer for mostly television who shared additional credits with Joseph Vitarelli, the music starts out with a resounding theme that invokes the days of the original thirteen colonies with the fife and drums and the drive to achieve something greater than mere existence. Although the music lifts you up, it sustains itself until there is no question that independence was not only necessary, but our destiny. If you ever listened to the music from Last of the Mohicans and liked it, then you will enjoy this just as much.

Please also notice that the timing of this is over 30 minutes, but there was so much to sort through to end up with this movie suite, I hope you'll forgive me for the length. Until next time...enjoy.  -MJ
