I have been listening a lot more than I have in recent years to Barrys style of music. I cannot really pinpoint what it is. I hear some jazz and classical elements in it. It seems like he takes some chord structures from classical pieces and incorporates them into his own or maybe not.

     John’s melodious spectrum was varied although and amidst his best tallies are the expansive tallies for Born Free and Dances with Wolves depicting majestic Savannahs or prairies respectively. Clearly melodies carries with it its’ own associations and Barry’s melodies when learned carries us back to the movies that he composed the melodies for. His diversity extended to the more claustrophobic topics for Midnight Cowboy and The Ipcress File. He composed large-scale love topics for Out of Africa and Somewhere in Time; although my own individual very well liked was the melodies he tallied for Indecent Proposal. His swing leveraged Body Heat and of course The Cotton Club entitled after that hotbed of early Jazz development. He themed the chronicled plays “The Lion in winter, Robin and Marian and Mary Queen of Scots”. With such an illustrious vocation it is a little jarring to note that he furthermore did Howard the Duck!
    In latest years, Barry has made a twosome of albums of his own melodies, Moviola beginning with an unused topic for the movie of that name, and The Beyondness of Things. These albums might be recounted as soundtracks without the intrusion of movie visuals. His newest such album has only lately been issued under the name Eternal Echoe. And needless to state, John Barry's place as the sound of James Bond is still recognizable regardless of its modernization under the helm of the present Bond tunesmith David Arnold.
