John Barry is the legendary movie composer of such Oscar-winning soundtracks as Out of Africa, Dances with Wolves, not to mention eleven James Bond scores.
Barry's success caught the attention of the producers of the James Bond films. He composed and performed the scores for eleven Bond movies. By the time Goldfinger came along, Barry had perfected the 'Bond sound', a heady mixture of brass, jazz and lush melodies. The soundtrack album for Goldfinger knocked the Beatles' A Hard Day's Night off the top of the American charts in 1964, and earned the composer his first gold disc. His last Bond score fwas 1987's The Living Daylights, in which Barry made a cameo appearance as a conductor.
