OFAM music director Chuck Redd takes his festival jazz unit and all of us on a journey through the music-laden alleys and byways of Hitchcock's world, from 1934's "The Man Who Knew Too Much" to 1960's "Psycho", with many stops along the way.
As with every aspect of his legendary work, Alfred Hitchock's use (and non-use) of music in his 50-odd feature films is always essential and invariably masterful. One of the most influential filmmakers of all time, "The Master of Suspense" messed with us through our ears as much as he did through our eyes and his sounds are often as burnt indellibly on our minds as his scenes.
