Patton Movie Suite

Patton Suite
Music by Jerry Goldsmith

Okay, we should say this at the outset; Jerry Goldsmith did himself proud with this motion picture score.  With the signature, fading trumpet fanfare that starts and ends this movie suite we know instantly that this is serious music.  The movie was nominated for 10 Oscars in 1971, winning 7, but not for Best Musical Score.  We will not debate this omission, but instead we present to you a movie suite that is arguably one of Mr. Goldsmith's best works.  With a timing of 19:57, I know that you'll enjoy this one alot.  -MJ
