But if you’re a fan of his, or this site, you already know that. Of all the composers we’ve gotten to know over the years, Steve is one of our favorite people to talk to.

However, the one I was most excited to see was The Rocketeer. Since it is one of my favorite movies (and I’m not alone am I Ruth?) I just had to post it. I’ve also attached some of the ones I really enjoyed. Damn this guy is just uber talented. It’s tough to find that delicate balance between minimalist and boring. But he…
