GUEST,TJ in San Diego Obit: Art Ferrante, Movie Composer (Sept 09) (7) RE: Obit: Art Ferrante, Movie Composer (Sept 09) 23 Sep 09

Much of what we now term "elevator music" or "prozac music" was once a far more prominent part of our lives. In context, some of it was once hit material, mostly pre-1970, I expect. Ferrante & Teicher made music that, while passe' today, certainly helped define an era when melodic instrumental themes were very popular. I can't imagine the reconstituted Jimmy Dorsey band's late '50's hit, "So Rare" would make it today. Perez Prado's "Patricia" was another from the same era. When I hear them now, I am transported back to my teens, zits and all.
