your comments on the hollywood studio symphony are UNFOUNDED! at least i have the confidence to say that London also does an exceptional job w/ film recording (although, much slower paced). we have no time to prepare, and i've played with the best orchestra's in the world, but this is THE BEST (at the very least in what we do). don't forget the fact that many of our musicians play both classical and jazz, blues etc., switch-hitters... let's say a "sassy" jazz cue appears on the stand... could london pull that off? sorry to let you down... but honestly, do you believe that the musicians whom get paid a higher salary than ANY section player in ANY orchestra in the world are NOT good players? they're "scouted out" many times. most of my colleagues have already been concertmasters or soloists, and NO, they're not old folks. give "MINORITY REPORT" a listen ... that's a williams score, performed MAGNIFICENTLY by the HOLLYWOOD STUDIO SYMPHONY. again, excellent work by the LSO ... really. it's NOT a battle, no need to make it that.
