Danny Bramson: The Interview Part 5 on Q Score
How did Bruce Springsteen’s “Secret Garden” make it into “Jerry Maguire” as score? The original plan was for jazz and early, unreleased Miles Davis . . . but that gave way to a partnership with Sony’s Glen Brunman (Forrest Gump) and become the first release for Epic Soundtracks. The search through album tracks for score embraced all their favorites, and ended up with “Secret Garden”, which had debuted on a Greatest Hits compilation but gone nowhere. Bramson called producer Jon Landau and discovered that there was an entire string arrangement for the song which didn’t make it into the release, and thanks to technology, they accessed the multi-tracks and used the song as an instrumental as well as the triumphant love scene with Tom Cruise and Rene Zellweger. Same thing happened with Bob Dylan. Again technology saved an unreleased track.
Enjoy the entire six part interview with Danny. From the Universal Amphitheater to his prolific partnership with Cameron Crowe, the Rolling Stone writer-turned-uber-successful-film-director whose path was immortalized in the semi-autobiographical Almost Famous, legendary music industry impresario Danny Bramson joins Q Score’s own Jonathan McHugh for a six part interview. They discuss everyone and everything from Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan and Tom Petty to Say Anything, Singles, Jerry Maguire and, of course, Almost Famous.
