Terence Blanchard covers classic motion picture scores with an expressive jazz trumpet and approach to straight-ahead jazz on the 1998 Sony Classical release Jazz In Film. Scores by Duke Ellington (Anatomy of a Murder), Quincy Jones (The Pawn Broker) and Jerry Goldsmith (Chinatown) are immersed in the world of jazz and resurface complete with Blanchard's imprint and eloquent style that is reminiscent of mid-'60s Miles Davis. Accompanied by contemporary jazz masters such as Kenny Kirkland, Joe Henderson and Donald Harrison, the set features the precision and emotional flair Blanchard is known for. His interpretations of Goldsmith's score from Chinatown and Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver remain true to the original compositions. However, Blanchard's jazz execution develops and adds another dimension to the psychological turmoil their themes explore. His masterful use of a jazz ensemble with an orchestra to exemplify the music of such great composers as Elmer Bernstein (Man with the Golden Arm) exudes maturity and surpasses the excellence of his previous scoring efforts on the jazz-flavored score for Eve's Bayou.
This cd is a 'must have' for any jazz collector, especially one whom is a movie buff. Blanchard's song selection and execution are unparalleled as he accomplishes the task of replaying famous jazz hits from movies over the last five decades.
Wonderful and perfectly picked collection. It's like Jazz Noir! "Clockers" with the Late and Great Kenny Kirkland just KILLS IT! A must have for true Jazz fans and Movie soundtrack buffs.
