THEODORE SHAPIRO - Marley and Me [CD]
Although the quote from the 37 year old American composer's wikipedia page, "He is best known for his film scores, particularly from The Mysteries of Pittsburgh, 13 Going on 30, The Devil Wears Prada, Fun with Dick and Jane, Idiocracy, You, Me and Dupree, and Wet Hot American Summer, but has also written other works." will make some people giggle (well at least me for sure), still the composer who likes to be called "Teddy", is a particularly favorable choice by studios, directors, fans and film music journalism websites when it comes to picking him up and promoting his new assingments.
His latest release is the score for the new comedy, Marley and Me in which a family learns important life lessons from their adorable, but naughty and neurotic dog. The score CD comes from Lakeshore records on December the 16th, 2008 and runs on 24 short tracks with a total running time of 39 minutes. If you visit the relevant Amazon.com page, HERE, you can listen to sound clips from the score and the same applies to the SAE page, HERE.
Scoringsessions.com also features a very interesting visual / written article on the recording sessions of the said score, at their page HERE.
