I was talking about his son, Joel, who passed last year. He was just as gifted as his late father. He also knew a thing or two about adapting other composers' material skillfully into his scores.
Zimmer's "Flight" deserves a far better arrangement for orchestra, than it was for MOS. Joel or Shirley would've done something wonderful with his material.
