Best musical memory


Recommended Posts

There was an AWAKE! article years ago discussing the evils of the music business.

The brother who was sharing his first-hand knowledge in the article didn't give his name,

but he did name some of the music he was famous for composing.  

 

One of the pieces he composed was the theme to Mission Impossible.

 

Well, since Lalo Schifrin wrote the theme to Mission Impossible, that would make him the person

in the article and the person in the article was our brother.  

 

So...by deduction...Lalo Schifrin is a witness, or at least he was back when the article was printed. 

 

I hope he's still in The Truth.

I did some research and discovered the article.  I was wrong.  The brother said he wrote music for Mission Impossible and Mannix.

He didn't say he composed the shows' theme songs.

So it wasn't Lalo Schifrin:

Quote

The firsthand experience of Benny Golson, an elder in a Los Angeles, California, congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses, emphasizes the fact that there really is reason to beware of disco and its immoral life-style. During the week that a traveling representative of Jehovah’s Witnesses was visiting the congregation, Benny gave a talk based on the March 22 Awake! about disco. He prepared in writing what he said, excerpts of which follow.
I AM a song writer, and a musician. I have recorded and played with the jazz bands of Dizzy Gillespie, Art Blakey, Lionel Hampton, Benny Goodman and Earl Bostic. I have written music for such well-known artists as Peggy Lee, Eartha Kitt, Connie Francis, Ella Fitzgerald, Diana Ross, and for such television shows as Mission Impossible, The Partridge Family, M*A*S*H and Mannix. So early this year, when I heard that Awake! was to feature material on disco, I eagerly awaited its coming.
12/22/79 AWAKE!  "Disco: Is There a Reason to Beware?"

So it is Brother Golson and not Brother Schifrin mentioned in the article I was remembering.

Well...it was 40 years ago that I read the article.  It's a wonder I could remember anything at all about the article. ^_^
