Les Biches

CD (Item 613677) Saimel (Spain), 1968 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock


4.80 12

A dark score for this late 60s Claude Chabrol film – penned by frequent musical collaborator Pierre Jansen, who really outdoes himself with this great soundtrack! In keeping with Chabrol's narrative, lots of the musical tones are nice and dark – some very submerged in the mix, with this almost out of reach sort of feel – which creates tension as we strain to pick them up! Yet other points are a bit lighter – maybe more what you'd expect from a 60s French soundtrack – but these are quickly cut by some of Jansen's offbeat string or woodwind elements, often seemingly tuned in very odd ways. The sound on this reissue is great – and the set features 20 tracks that include "Les Biches", "Aurora", "Due Donne Insieme", "Beat In", and "Dance Out".

Capitol/Film Score Monthly, 1969. New Copy
If Hawaii was this funky, we'd move there in a minute – and honestly, we wouldn't be surprised if this record did a heck of a lot for the image of state back in the day! The soundtrack is one of our all-time favorites – a driving batch of larger orchestrations that is heavy on ... CD

Quartet (Spain), 1984. New Copy
Dave Grusin's soundtrack for the seedy 80s NYC crime drama The Pope Of Greenwich Village – a jazzier score than we remembered from the film! Dense, atmospheric keyboards and some 80s clubby jazz funk grooves, along with more spacious and dramatic material. Some really cool, noirish 80s ... CD
