      Mark Isham: biography

      cds in stock



      Mark Isham was born in New York City on
      September 7, 1951. His mother was a violinist and his father taught music and history, so he began studying classical piano, trumpet and violin from an early age.
      He began his music career as a trumpet player in the Oakland and San Francisco Symphonies and went on to play in various rock and jazz bands.

      In his early 20s, Isham branched out into electronic music, building a reputation as a synthesiser programmer, although trumpet remained his primary career, and he established a career as a classical trumpeter, jazz stylist, solo instrumentalist and rock guest artist with such high-profile bands as the Rolling Stones. He is in constant demand as a trumpeter and has appeared as a guest musician on the last two Joni Mitchell albums and several Van Morrison records.

      Isham garnished critical acclaim for his debut album as
      a solo artist on Vapour Drawings and went on to release two more albums, Castalia and Tibet, for which he received Grammy nominations.

      His latest album, Miles Remembered: The Silent Way Project was awarded Best Jazz Album in 1999 by the London Times and is a reinterpretation of the late 60s music by Miles Davis. Isham is one of the top Hollywood film composers of today, with a career spanning two decades and over 50 film and TV credits including his debut with Disney's Never Cry Wolf (1983), Hitcher, The (1986), Point Break (1991), Little Man Tate (1991), A River Runs Through It, A (1992), Of Mice and Men (1992), as well as television scores on Chicago Hope (1994) and EZ Streets (1996) for which he received an Emmy.

    • Blue Sun CD album Blue Sun (Mark Isham) US cd album (1995)

      By the mid-'90s, trumpeter Mark Isham didn't need to make another solo album. After all, his artistic reputation--and financial security--had already been assured by his work as a film and television composer. He had won Oscar, Grammy, and Emmy nominations for his scores, as well as ongoing critical." Somehow, though, it wasn't enough--he "wanted a vehicle where I could realize my own artistic vision." That vehicle is Blue Sun, Isham's first solo album in four years and the first straight-ahead, acoustic jazz album of his career. He recorded it with the jazz quintet he has led in Los Angeles in recent years (pianist David Goldblatt, saxophonist Steve Tavaglione, bassist Doug Lunn and drummer Kurt Wortman) and that's the band he brings to this project, which mirrors his lifelong admiration for Miles Davis. Isham's Blue Sun does have the understated romanticism of Kind of Blue, especially in the leader's muted-trumpet smears and in pianist
      David Goldblatt's
      space-filled broken chords. The most obvious tribute comes on And Miles to Go... Before He Sleeps, a ballad tribute to Davis featuring Isham's languid trumpet lines.

      Grammy Nomination! Originally released in 1988. Following on the heels of his trumpet sessions for the sublime David Sylvian Secrets of the Beehives album, Isham explores the themes set out on the aforementioned work. The album as its title implies has a Spanish/South of France feel to it conjuring up musical pictures of Picasso, Jean Cocteau & the like. A beautiful album and one to be warmly recommended if you enjoyed Secrets of the Beehives.

    • Film Music - Ms. Soffel ~ The Times of Harvey Milk ~ Never Cry Wolf CD album Film Music - Ms. Soffel ~ The Times of Harvey Milk ~ Never Cry Wolf (Mark Isham) US cd album (1990)

      Number of Discs: 1
      Label: Windham Hill Records

      Isham in the 21st century is one hotshot soundtrack composer, having scored well over a dozen films in half as many years. Film Music collects some of his earliest and, as it turns out, best soundtracks. In many ways, this music beneficially augmented the often-flaccid celluloid it was designed to accompany. That
      Windham Hill saw to release these three collected works immediately telegraphs where Isham was
      coming from in the mid-'80s: compositions couched in sublime beauty, gentle ambience, and a most un-Hollywood composing method that would gradually wane in his later Tinseltown work.

      Mrs. Soffel drinks deep of Isham's undulating synth chords and Harold Budd-like piano motifs, enticing without being cloying.

      The Times of Harvey Milk conversely explores a more upbeat terrain, as piping electronics and probing strings suggest vibrancy, confidence, and hope.

      It is, however, Isham's epic suite for Carol Ballard's Never Cry Wolf that is this disc's epicenter. Though at times recalling some of Vangelis' film-work with its cooing electronics and triumphant phrasings, Isham manages to concoct one of cinema's first "ambient" scores-replete with flutes, synths, and sundry sounds whose tones are stretched out seemingly to infinity

    • I'm Yours Your're Mine CD album I'm Yours Your're Mine (Betty Carter, Mark Isham, Various Artists) French cd album (1996)

      Number of Discs: 1

      L'immense chanteuse Betty Carter n'a malheureusement pas, de son vivant, rencontré le succès qu'elle méritait. Raison de plus pour décortiquer sa discographie, et en particulier cette perle éditée en 1996. Deux titres, I'm Yours, You're Mine et Useless Landscape, méritent à eux seuls l'achat de ce disque. On y découvre une chanteuse à la fois impériale et aérienne, faussement distante et réellement à l'écoute de ses musiciens (ici, un sextette modulable), qui se fait plaisir avec des feulements vraiment réjouissants !

    • Life as a House: Original Motion Picture Score CD album Life as a House: Original Motion Picture Score (Mark Isham) US cd album (2001)

      While Irwin Winkler's bittersweet film constructs a touching allegory--Kevin Kline's character is diagnosed with terminal cancer and sets about both salvaging a relationship with his estranged son and building the house of his dreams--it's also the kind of story that requires a deft musical touch, one that embodies a sense of buoyant optimism even as it heads toward the dramatically inevitable. Alternating between vibrant, rhythmic passages carried largely by mallet instruments (and resembling a more structured take on similar Tom Newman cues) and the melancholy of his quietly effective writing for strings and solo piano, Mark Isham's score strikes an almost perfect emotional balance amid a minefield of potential bathos. It also fuses some of the composer's modern minimalist composing instincts and spacious sense of dynamics with the more traditionally pastoral, resulting in emotionally introspective music that is considerably more than the sum of its parts.
