a desilu production

Originally hailing from Buenos Aires and son of the long-time second-fiddle to the city’s national opera, jazz arranger and composer Lalo Schifrin was captivated with music from an early age and a collaboration with Dizzy Gillespie in 1956 set Schifrin’s career on a trajectory that brought him to Hollywood six years later.
Aside from dozens of studio albums that comprises a respectable discography on its own, the award-winning Schifrin garnered well-deserved aplomb for his talent, employing catchy time signatures like the five-four of his theme for Mission: Impossible, Schifrin quickly became television and film’s mainstay for scores and incidental music. Other television series include The Man from UNCLE, Mannix and Starsky and Hutch. Of the over one hundred-sixty movies Schifrin crated and synchronised the soundtrack for include Cool Hand Luke, Bullitt, Che!, THX 1138, Enter the Dragon, Return from Witch Mountain, Jaws, The Amityville Horror, Clint Eastwood’s Sudden Impact, The Dead Pool and the Rush Hour series.
