Classic Soundtrack Trumpet: Al Hirt’s The Green Hornet Theme (used in Kill Bill)
Yes I’ve posted it before: one of the most incredible theme songs ever. From the 1960s short-lived ABC Show (done by the same people who did the 1960s version of Batman on TV) the Green Hornet theme. It’s a take off of the Flight of the Bumble Bee piece — but this time done on trumpet by the amazing Al Hirt. The theme was used extensively in “Kill Bill” and became all the rage — even on ringtones.
Here are two versions of the piece. First, here is Al Hirt’s original recording.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WXgjzHSVDEA
Now watch this AMAZING video of Rex Merriweather doing a SUPER JOB in duplicating Hirt’s rendition — even hitting some higher notes. A+:
