(p.181) Chapter 12 Maturity, the Second Cadence
Henry Mancini

John Caps

University of Illinois Press

This chapter details Mancini's musical evolution in the late 1970s. It may seem odd to associate “maturity” with the music of Mancini at this stage in his career, when clearly all of his most influential work was already past, having been produced between, say, 1958 and 1969. Maturity in this case does not mean a permanent evolution away from jazz-pop and toward exclusively large-scale formal symphonic scoring. Maturity now means that Mancini had learned to deal with all kinds of music: to be able to write, in the same year as those resolute songs for the film 10, an anti-thematic orchestral score for a thriller film set in the American Southwest that mixes Indian tribal lore, modern political intrigue, and the spooky science of vampire bats—and to “mean” them both.
