Alamo the Movie Suite

Alamo, The Suite
Music by Carter Burwell

In an attempt to offer movie suites that cover every imaginable style of music, we have a unique offering here that is part symphonic, part march, part folksie and completely engaging. Also this is the first visit of Mr. Burwell, so we'll tread lightly in his honor. This movie suite is much different than the 1960 version, but that's not a bad thing.  Filled with emotion, there is a singular message here as we march from the beginning to the fitting conclusion.  Along the way we're to visit the hopeless situation of war and death and the determination of a few men who stand to make a difference.  The main theme flirts in and out of the music, a simple yet heartfelt motif that inspires us. As the final horns sing we are reminded that we only have one shot to make a difference, so it may as well be now. At least that's how I feel. With a timing of 21:55, you may want to check this out, because you just might enjoy it.  -MJ
