“Maurice Murphy: the unsung classical hero of Star Wars and beyond”

“It’s his trumpet playing you hear blazing over the soundtracks to all six Star Wars films….”

@wikipedia:

“Murphy can be heard on film soundtracks including all six Star Wars films (his first role as Principal Trumpet in the LSO), Superman: The Movie, Raiders of the Lost Ark … Batman, the Alien movies, Frankenstein, Gladiator … and many more.”
