Cutty Sark (John Barry)

John Barry was an English composer of filmmusic.

He wrote the soundtrack of 11 James Bond movies, music for Dances with wolves, Out of Africa, etc.

He had some hits with his band, the John Barry Seven, including this playful theme in 6/8. It's a dedication to a fast tallship, build in 1869, that was used to pick up tea in India, a British colony until 1947. He wrote it in 1962.

No recording of the arrangement itself yet, but this is how the John Barry Seven played it.
