Really dark work from composer Pierre Jansen – a CD that collects tracks written for the films of Claude Chabrol, a range of 60s and early 70s French thrillers with a moody, pessimistic feel. Most tracks have off-kilter orchestrations with occasional evocative solo instrument passages – a bit like thriller work by Morricone, but with less warmth and less of the fleeting moments of beauty that can make Morricone's darkest moments still sparkle at times. Titles include "Le Boucher", "Popaul Melomane", "Juste Avant La Nuit", "Les Amants De Munich", "Que La Bete Meure", and the extended "Symphonie Concertante Pour Orgue Piano Et Orchestre" from the film La Decade Prodidieuse.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Cops & Robbers
MGM/Kritzerland, 1973. New Copy
Wonderful lost work from Michel Legrand – a fantastic, and fantastically overlooked, 70s soundtrack – completely essential to have in a CD version like this, since most of the music hardly appeared in the film at all! The score takes off nicely from some of Legrand's more famous work ... CD
Kritzerland, 1961. New Copy
One of the coolest jazzy soundtracks of the early 60s! David Raksin's other great film work has jazz elements, too, but he goes all in on Two Late Blues. It has these incredible small combo cues – with little more than piano, drums, bass and horns – but they still manage to deliver ... CD
