• Without a doubt; "Shaft" started the majestic trumpet movie score

    The first trumpets were found in Africa. (http://en.Wikipedia.Org/wiki/History_of_primitive_and_non-Western_trumpets). Also there's a reason why almost all flms until the 1970s featured violin scores, whether it'd be "Casablanca" or "Birth of a Nation" (which featured a violin score), or "Leave it to Beaver" the TV show. A common thing is that scenes that had men dramatizing their anger or women begging their man not to do something always had a violin score. It was common. Trumpet fanfare only hit filmmaking when "Shaft" hit the screen. And even moreso when "Accross 110th street" was released, which was the birth of trumpet fanfare in films to the core, a style later to be used by movies and TVs.
