tunesfortoons.jpgHere is the cover of the new book – on sale in October – by cartoon music historian Daniel Goldmark.Tunes for ‘Toons: Music and the Hollywood Cartoon presents a set of case studies on cartoon music, with chapters on Carl Stalling, Scott Bradley, jazz, classical music, and opera in Hollywood cartoons, with particular attention to Warner Bros. & MGM. With this book your knowledge and insight on cartoon scores will double – and, more importantly, you’ll now be able to understand why Stalling used Raymond Scott’s “Powerhouse,” and Liszt’s “Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2,” (among others) so skillfully in so many Looney Tunes.
