    Shirley Walker – A fine composer and orchestraror. She was hugely instrumental in the creation of Elfman’s ‘Batman’ and Zimmer’s underrated ‘Black Rain.’ Went too soon. Nice to see La La giving her due respect for her composing efforts…’Turbulence’ was a score with heft and, not surprisingly, skillful orchestration.

    I just received my copy in the mail today, and this was well worth the sixteen-year wait. I saw this in the cinema sixteen years ago, hoping the score would’ve been commercially released. I loved every single score that Ms. Walker composed, and I will say that “Escape From L.A.” was one of her greatest; “Batman: Mask of the Phantasm” and “Turbulence” are her masterpieces/crowning achievements, and the scores from the first three “Final Destination” films is her magnum opus. I miss her and her sound. A pioneer and history-making composer/orchestrator whose work equalled (and even surpassed) many of her male contemporaries. Her action and horror writing had an old-school, grand, big band kind of feel to it. She was a genius. RIP Ms. Walker. Thank you for your legacy.
