John Barry: In Memoriam

John Barry, one of the greatest composers in cinema and music history, passed away this last Sunday at the age of 77. He was known for his outstanding scores for films such as: "Born Free", "Midnight Cowboy", "The Deep", "Out of Africa", "Dances With Wolves", "The Cotton Club", and most of the James Bond films (from 1962 to 1987, except "Live and Let Die", "The Spy Who Loved Me", and "For Your Eyes Only") .

His talent can be compared to that of any classical music composer; expressing emotions through haunting melodies filled with striking arrangements.
