  1. Very nice. I love hearing John’s enthusiasm for the score. A little after hearing this podcast, I heard Jamie Cullum play 007 and Counting on Radio 2 on his evening jazz show. It’s still on BBC iPlayer. He said “Things that happen in this music really remind me of what a great soloist does when they’re going out of your comfort zone, making you hear weird things and then dragging you back in and making it feel whole again and John Barry was the master of this…IS the master of this!”

    1. Thanks for the heads-up! I was able to find the Radio 2’s Jazz Playlist, saw the listing for, and listened to “007 and Counting” (and the other tracks); after Jamie Cullum’s introduction at the beginning of the playlist, however, there were no further comments. Perhaps his John Barry comment was only part of the live broadcast?

      1. Perhaps, yes. I was in my car at the time and recorded it on my phone which is how I was able to quote him. He clearly loves the track as much as we do! We certainly need more John Barry on the radio.
