✨✧ Henry ManciniTheme From Z & Other Film Music/Debut – The Philadelphia Orchestra Pops ... CD
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1969/1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A Henry Mancini double header – two albums back to back! First up is Theme From Z – cool Mancini work from the start of the 70s – a record that offers a nice step forward from his scoring styles of the 60s, with a slightly orchestral feel as well! The arrangements here are full, but still have a nice sort of focus – and include solos by players like Mancini on piano, Jimmy Rowles on electric calliope, Dick Nash on trombone, Ted Nash on alto, and Art Smith on recorder. Some of the best tracks have a groovy feel that really fits the date of the record, while others have a more traditional soundtrack approach – and tunes include "Theme From Z", "Airport Love Theme", "Raindrops Keep Fallin On My Head", "A Man A Horse A Gun", "Patton Theme", and Jobim's "Love Theme From The Adventurers". Debut has Henry Mancini making his debut as a conductor of the Philadelphia Pops – a larger orchestra than you'll usually hear on most Manini albums, which allows Hank to really open up in some more sophisticated modes! The songs are mostly more serious Mancini compositions – with solos on flute, oboe, violin, harpsichord, and trumpet – and titles include "Beaver Valley 37", "Dream Of A Lifetime", "Drummer's Delight", "Speedy Gonzalez", and "Strings On Fire".
