Jan Berry's Original Music Scores Published
« on: May 18, 2022, 09:57:51 AM »
AUTHENTIC SHEET MUSIC — Fifty-six years after the car accident that changed his life forever, Jan Berry’s original music scores and charts from the 1960s still exist—the actual documents used by the Wrecking Crew to record the original songs. These fascinating manuscripts open an important window on Jan’s body of work for Jan & Dean and other artists.

In association with Jan’s estate, author Mark A. Moore has begun to transcribe and publish some of Jan’s best arrangements, to shed more light on him as a songwriter and arranger, and to invite further study of the music.

These transcribed scores will interest musicians, music educators, school ensembles, bands, and any musician/aficionado of the West Coast Sound and the Hollywood studio system of the 1960s.

First up is the classic “Dead Man’s Curve” . . . and more will soon follow:

The interview with Phil Miglioratti is fascinating. I have read both of Mark's books and this interview adds or at the very least underlines and confirms Jan's massive talents. Not satisfied as bass and lead singer, song writer and producer, Jan's arranging abilities surely exceed any contemporary rock singer / musician. I know of no other performer (in the usual meaning of that word) who was able to orchestrate such complex arrangements and for so many different instruments.
Jan did not have that "natural" genius of Brian Wilson but he was far more talented and by all accounts (not just Mark's) influenced Brian and others... in creating a studio based sound.
It is fascinating also to read about the separate arrangements for live shows.

I do wonder - in terms of Jan's legacy - why he so often chose to not focus on the four part harmonies on tv (other than cost) meaning that some of the live versions we have tend to expose Jan and Dean's vocals.

Thanks Mark again for your work.
