“Outlaw Justice” – CBS Movie of the Week

Composer/Orchestrator - Jay Gruska

This film starring Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Travis Tritt and Waylon Jennings was fun for a city slicker like me. I recorded the guitar and harmonica in L.A., then flew to Toronto,  which is where they did post production for the film, to record the orchestra.  It was an old fashioned style western and the musical assignment was to sound like the great Elmer Bernstien in the era of The Magnificent Seven.  I had a 35-piece orchestra and really needed twice that many to make the right sound, but we gotsta do what we gotsta do with what we gotsta do it with.
