Record producer Meco demonstrated there was profit in marketing popular cover arrangements of John Williams' Star Wars compositions. But though his Space Disco theme was a huge hit in 1977, three years later, even though Williams served up another memorable melody in The Empire Strikes Back, the enthusiasm for such projects seems to have waned. Boris Mindey gave it a go, but who remembers him? Maybe it was just that no one could figure out what to do with the Imperial March.

Hmmm...much as I like the Star Wars disco theme, I'm not sure how long I could listen to this. Confused

Jazz is a style for which appreciation takes some time to develop. If you're interested, you might start with more of the melodic, pop-oriented jazz and see where that leads you.

Let me know if you'd like specific suggestions.
