Tech Talk From The Producer…
Georges Delerue wrote a varied score for Maxie, with
music ranging from his signature melodic style through jazz material and into humorous ideas
for behind-the-scenes movie making. To bring this score to CD for the very first time ever, Intrada
was provided access to the original ¼” 15 i.p.s. two-track stereo scoring session masters, stored
in mint condition in the MGM vaults.
Typical for the composer, cues tend to be short. We have assembled
our “album” into a pleasant listening experience using everything
Delerue scored, with the exception of some very brief fragments
written for transition scenes, usually involving thematic material already
covered elsewhere in the score. However, for archivists, we have also
included all of those short cues in our “extras” section of the CD .
Listeners wishing to sequence the extras into the album can
program their CD as follows to create a complete listening experience
that will approximate the picture chronology: 1, 3, 23, 24, 33, 25, 26,
27, 6, 5, 4, 28, 29, 2, 11, 10, 7, 8, 13, 9, 12, 15, 14, 30, 16, 31, 17, 18,
19, 20, 32, 21, 22.
With Maxie, Georges Delerue offers a rich score revolving around
a politely rhythmic main theme, balanced by hauntingly beautiful
melodies, touches of humor and soothing jazz. This one is easy to enjoy!
Composed and Conducted by Georges Delerue. Recorded on July 11 and 12, 1985, at Evergreen Recording Studios, Burbank, California.
