Tommy Dorsey's "Brazil" in film and TV

NY Magazine has an excellent analysis of various film usages of the main theme of Tommy Dorsey's "Brazil." The most widely known version is most likely Michael Kamen's adaptation used in Terry Gilliam's film of the same name.

IMHO, music producers in general (and especially film composers) should be aware of Kamen and his body of work. "Brazil" is certainly a film that will be referenced often in conversations between directors and composers.
