British maestro Geoff Love takes on tracks by two of the biggest soundtrack talents of the 70s! First up is La Musique De Michel Legrand – a set that features sublime compositions by Michel Legrand, done here in these sweeping easy instrumental modes by Love – sometimes a bit more lush than any Legrand originals, and with this warm glow that makes the different styles from different soundtracks hold together nicely. Titles include "Sans Toi", "Watch What Happens", "Chanson De Jumelles", "The Go Between", "I Will Wait For You", "Windmills Of Your Mind", and "Twin Tango". Next is La Musique D'Ennio Morricone
– a very cool set of cuts composed by Ennio Morricone
, made different by the work of Geoff Love! The tunes here are familiar from classic Morricone
film scores – but Love's presentation focuses in on melodic elements a bit more, sometimes in ways that really bring a nicely light touch to the music – while still echoing the darker intentions of the maestro. A few numbers feature pointed harmonica solos – and titles include an excellent version of "The Burglars", plus "Sweet Susan", "The Man With The Harmonica", "Here's To You", "When Women Had Tails", "Incontro", and "The Good The Bad & The Ugly".
