The music from the HBO® Series Game of Thrones Season 6 is once again composed by Ramin Djawadi. The composer is best known for his Grammy-nominated score for the 2008 Marvel film Iron Man and movies such as Pacific Rim and Warcraft or television series as Prison Break and Person of Interest.
Nas' I AM was his third studio album release and proved his reputation of one hip-hop's leading rappers. His strong lyrics are heard on tracks like "Small World" and "Favor for a Favor" featuring Scarface of the Ghetto Boys. The original material of the album was leaked onto the internet and this forced him to record completely new material.
Looking On is the third album by The Move, released in December 1970 and is their first LP to feature Jeff Lynne. "Brontosaurus" was covered by Cheap Trick and "Feel Too Good" was later featured on the soundtrack of the movie Boogie Nights as well as in the pilot episode of the UK series "Life on Mars".
Conrad Rook had asked Ornette Coleman to compose the music for his film Chappaqua. In june '65 David Izenzohn, Charles Moffet, tenor saxophonist Pharoah Sanders and several other musicians started recording the album. Conrad Rook eventually decided to go for a different score for his film, as he found it was so beautiful that he feared it would overpower the imagery and action of the film.
