Worked extensively with the London Symphony Orchestra

 

Performed the famous piano riff on the original recording of Henry Mancini's theme to "Peter Gunn" (1958).

 

[about his friend, Jerry Goldsmith] His chameleon adaptability was a prerequisite to longevity and success in Hollywood. We used to call him Gorgeous. He was the golden boy, a beautiful presence. His music had a freshness, and he had a freshness.
