Album Review

Scotland-born composer Rolfe Kent (About Schmidt and Nurse Betty) doles out an effervescent jazz-laced score for Alexander Payne's winsome comedy Sideways, a character study following a frolicking trio of friends celebrating the end of bachelorhood in the region of California where wine is king. Kent's soundtrack is more like a bubbling over glass of champagne than a pinot noir. With wistful, accordion-led gems like "Los Olivos" and "Chasing the Golfers," it brings to mind the works of Yann Tiersan (Amélie) and Greencard-era Hans Zimmer. Kent fills the green valleys of Sonoma county with blurry pastels and the warm, deep reds of evening with terrific ease, painting a whimsical world of melancholy with '60s-infused beatnik motifs — "I'm Not Drinking Any #@%!$ Merlot!" borrows the melody from "Taste of Honey" with infectious results. Sideways may not move any mountains, but it sure would make the drive through them a lot sunnier. Recommended.

Can I get a copy of barely legal?

Searched iTunes for 'Sideways' but nothing came up, had to search for 'Rolfe Kent' to find this awesome soundtrack to the best film of 2005, Paul Giamatti is just sublime in this film, and this soundtrack fits perfectly to the boozy adventures of Miles and Jack (Thomas Haden Church). Sleazy drink music for sleazy drink people, cork a bottle of Merlot(!) and walk the vineyards with a wayward swagger kids! Don't go to the darkside!!!

Something missing ?

This great stuff and a fantastic soundtrack and almost better than the film. But what about the 'largo' played by Bill Evans and orchestrated by Claus Oggerman (spelling maybe wrong here). It's in the film and is from an album called Symbiosis. It's a fantastic piece of music: pity it's not here to complete the picture. Rolfe Kent is fantastic but that little sprinkle of Evans piano completes my memory of the film and yes the tatse buds. More Pinot Noir please and make available.
