Melodic Treks: A Star Trek Music Podcast
49: Solid Gold

In Memorial of Jerry Goldsmith.

On July 21, 2004, cancer took one of the most talented and prolific film composers at the age of 75. Star Trek fans know Jerry Goldsmith best for his contributions to Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, Star Trek: First Contact, Star Trek: Insurrection, Star Trek: Nemesis, and for the main title for Star Trek: Voyager. However, his extensive list of film, television, and video game credits exceeds 250 titles. Goldsmith was nominated for 18 Academy Awards and nine Golden Globes. Two of his scores—Planet of the Apes and Chinatown—are on the American Film Institute‘s list of the 25 best film scores of all time.

In this episode of Melodic Treks, host Brandon-Shea Mutala reflects on Goldsmith and plays tracks from five of his non-Trek scores, including Logan‘s Run, Rio Lobo, The Sum of All Fears, Warning Shot, and Bad Girls.
