Happy 91 to Lalo Schifrin

Today (6/21) is the first day of summer—and the birthday of the one and only Lalo Schifrin. I was reminded of this by a post from Robert Townson on Facebook.

Here is the tribute video that Bob and his team put together at their 85th birthday concert for Lalo in 2017 in Glendale, which I happily attended:

I will always remember watching Bullitt some 25 years ago with a crowd of young hipsters, and we were on the “Shifting Gears” lead-up to the famous car chase...

...and a young woman (definitely not a film music fan) exclaimed: “This music’s great! It’s like—groovy!”

It is!

I'm gonna listen to the Rifftrax version of Day of the Animals to celebrate this occasion.
