I worked on the film “Jump” for about 8 weeks in 1998. The film used temp music that had an “Esquivel” sound to them, which I was excited to emulate in my score. After having written most of the cues, I hired a band, booked a studio and set out to record my score. But the week before the recording date, I couldn’t reach the director! I left messages for 3 days without hearing a reply from him. Time was running out. I called the producer who told me not to worry, everything seemed fine, but after a week of silence, I got the call….
They paid a kill fee, and with that money, I paid for the 12 tracks on this album.
