VIDEO: John Williams Remembers Composer, Raymond Scott


John Williams talks about meeting and remembering composer, Raymond Scott.

From Wikipedia: 

Raymond Scott (born Harry Warnow, September 10, 1908 – February 8, 1994)[1] was an American composer, band leader, pianist, engineer, recording studio maverick, and electronic instrument inventor.

Although Scott never scored cartoon soundtracks, his music is familiar to millions because of its adaptation by Carl Stalling in over 120 classic Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig, Daffy Duck and other Warner Bros. Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies animated shorts. Scott's melodies may also be heard in contemporary shows like Ren and Stimpy (which use the original Scott recordings in twelve episodes), The Simpsons, Duckman, Animaniacs, The Oblongs, and Batfink. The only music Scott actually composed to accompany animation were three 20-second electronic commercial jingles for County Fair Bread in 1962.
