If you heard a French Horn solo in a Hollywood film during the last 30 years, there is the 99.9% chance it was him playing it, as he performed on more than 3,500 film and television scores: meet the legendary JAMES THATCHER.

French Horn player extraordinaire talks at length with The Legacy of John Williams editor Maurizio Caschetto and co-host Tim Burden about his many years of collaboration with John Williams as principal horn since 1989 on countless incredible scores including ALWAYS, HOOK, JFK, JURASSIC PARK, SLEEPERS, AMISTAD and many, many others, often performing exquisite solos.

Jim talks about his life and career as studio musician in Hollywood, his friendship with the great Vince DeRosa, his many projects with John Williams, and reflects extensively on the challenges and the thrills of being the principal horn for him. He also offers his insightful thoughts about Williams' music from the point of view of the performer, the history of the instrument in film scores and how the sound evolved throughout the decades. He also offers memories from his collaborations with James Horner and Jerry Goldsmith.
