Roy Budd


Roy Budd (1947-1993) was a British jazz and film composer, pianist, and arranger. He is best known for his work as a film composer, particularly for his scores in the 1970s and early 1980s. Budd started playing the piano at a young age and showed exceptional talent, becoming a professional musician by the age of 16.

One of Roy Budd's most notable achievements was his score for the 1971 crime film "Get Carter," starring Michael Caine. The soundtrack, featuring a combination of jazz, funk, and orchestral elements, is widely regarded as a classic in the genre. The main theme from "Get Carter" is particularly iconic and has been widely sampled and referenced in popular culture.
