Here’s my final Sonic Boom score from our anniversary trip. Fear not, we stopped other places too! Stay tuned!
The Racy Lacy Anniversary Series, Part 9 (CD)
Excellent jazz score to a film I’ve not (yet) seen. With Duke Ellington involved, you just know this is fantastic stuff. The band just nails it, track after track, with jazz, blues, and big band sounds. Many alternate and rehearsal versions of songs appear, giving the whole thing a sense of returning themes.
With new liner notes from Phil Schaap and Wynton Marsalis, and newly remastered, this set (neatly called “crime jazz”) is a damn fine soundtrack to any film.
