Medicine Man represents the creative zenith of Jerry Goldsmith's often erratic efforts to fuse electronics and symphonics — buoyed by its exotic percussion and Caribbean-inspired rhythms, the music also boosts a sweeping romanticism courtesy of the National Philharmonic Orchestra's lush performance. Goldsmith employs his electronics to vivid cinematic effect, capturing the mystery and elemental power of the film's tropical rain forest milieu via precipitation-like tones that evoke everything from light drizzle to torrential downpours. No less effective are Medicine Man's human elements, in particular its lively evocation of the romance between the film's leads. The end result is one of Goldsmith's most purely entertaining efforts, and a wonderful listen even when removed from its proper cinematic context.
I loved this movie and probably one of the main reasons is because it has such a beautiful sountrack. My two favorites are Rae's arrival - which is fun and full of ethnic beat and "The Trees" which is one of the most beautiful movie themes, filled with such emotion caused by the awe-inspiring forests that the movie portrays.
Touching and classic Goldsmith
In a score that is not far from the style of John Barry, this is Jerry Goldsmith in broad strokes and providing one of his finest themes. Some Brazilian, ethnic rhythms and a minor key theme pepper the score perfect for a rain forest in trouble. The score is performed by the talented National Philharmonic Orchestra of London. One of the best of the 1990s.
The only song I want is 'The Trees". Sooo good! Please make it where I can buy just that song!
