Fremeaux & Associates (France), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $22.99 29.99
French film composer Maurice Jarre went on to become one of the biggest talents on the international scene in the 60s – but this package brings together a range of different earlier works that show a much more varied approach to his sound! Jarre was always a master of mixing the intimate sentimental theme with a grander musical vision – and here, that spirit definitely comes across, but often in ways that have a smaller lineup of instrumentation – not the jazz-based scores of some of the French new wave, but still often with the lighter, more compact sound of that generation. The CD features a number of different sounds tracks that only appeared as EP releases in France – for directors who include Georges Franju, Marcel Camus, Jacques Bordon, and Jean-Pierre Mocky – scores for the films La Generation Du Desert, La Tate Contre Les Murs, Les Draguers, La Main Chaude, Recours En Grace, L'Oiseau De Paradis, Theres Desqueroux, and Le Soleil Dans L'Oleil – plus Le Jour Le Plus Long, aka The Longest Day – a soundtrack that really started Jarre on his way to fame.

Mainstream, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $1.99
A really beautiful little score by Maurice Jarre – smaller and more intimate than some of his other 60s work, with a number of nice tunes that turn slightly on a small amount of instrumentation. There's a feel here that's pretty dark overall – thin reed parts and a bit of harpsichord that play gently with one another, but have a very eerie feel overall. Titles include "Last Day", "Seduction", "Death", "The Catch", "Trapped", "Captive", and "The Garden". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing. Cover has some light stains at the seams, small split in the bottom seam, and is bent a bit a the top right corner.)

Maurice Jarre is no stranger to a military soundtrack, but his work here is nicely different than the rest – maybe in part because the movie's a creative effort from director Henri Verneuil, with Jean-Paul Belmondo in the lead! There's some nice currents of whimsy and sentiment mixed in with the more serious dramatic numbers – and at times, the are some nicely fresh uses of familiar instruments, especially piano – in ways that make for a score that's full of a lot more surprises than you'd expect! CD features 26 tracks in all – and titles include "Dimanche Matin", "Les Rescapes", "Retour A La Ville", "Hopital De Fortune", "Embarcation Office", "Helen Et John", and "Mort De Maillat". CD

That's Miles Davis and Jeanne Moreau on the cover – and image is a perfect summation of what makes this period in film music so unique! The set brings together music from the French new wave of the late 50s and early 60s – a time when revolutionary directors were putting fresh new images on screen, and also turning to lots of new ideas for their music, too – using jazz musicians like Miles to create some of their soundtracks, and also moving past some of the more overblown orchestral styles that had dominated most of the world of film scores during the postwar years. Much of the work used by these directors was in a style that was closer to the people, and more fitting for the sorts of themes in the films – and this 3CD collection features a wonderful array of different modes from the period. Many films are included here with a few selections from their famous soundtracks – and the 3CD package includes work from Tires Sur Le Pianiste (Shoot The Piano Player) by Georges Delerue, A Bout De Souffle (Breathless) by Marial Solal, L'Eau A La Bouche by Serge Gainsbourg, A Double Tour by Paul Misraki, Les Liaisons Dangereuxes by Art Blakey with Barney Wilen, La Tete Contre Les Murs by Maurice Jarre, Le Bel Age by Georges Delerue, Les Bonnes Femmes by Paul Misraki, Jules Et Jim by Georges Delerue, Lola by Michel Legrand, Les 400 Coups (400 Blows) by Jean Constantin, Une Femme Est Une Femme by Michel Legrand, Zazi Dans Le Metro by Fiorenzo Carpi, Ascenseur Pour L'Echafaud by Miles Davis, and Cleo De 5 A 7 by Michel Legrand.
