I've never seen the movie "The Specialist", but I'm a huge fan of British composer John Barry. Barry is amazingly prolific, composing soundtracks to some of Hollywood's most successful films, including the early films of the James Bond franchise. Below is an excerpt of the "The Specialist" soundtrack- one of my favorites by this great composer and one of his more evocative composition. When you listen to it, you might be reminded of a Hollywood-type film noir in which a man wearing a classic Fedora hat and a gray raincoat (a detective?) meets a woman of interest inside a smokey, dimly-lit tavern. The string section has a rich, romantic accompaniment, which is one of Barry's signature marks.
