The Vault: "Quiet On The Set"
"Situation: Comedy" was the second of Telltale's Sam & Max episode offerings, and "Quiet on the Set" was the main new piece for the episode.
Featuring a thick vibraphone part and stacks of instrumental improvisation, this piece was one of the first to loosen up the sound of my Sam & Max scores. It extended the sound of that universe into a bit more of an "off the page," organic feeling—something that was developed quite a bit more in seasons 2 and 3.
I had actually forgotten a lot of the details about this piece until I dug it up yesterday. It was great to hear—with fresh ears—the wild improvisational outbursts from the three main instrumental soloists: Jordan Wardlaw on saxophones, Jesse Wickman on drums, and the late/great/one-of-a-kind Michael Whitwell on the trumpet parts.
