John Barry's Americans
20-Dec-2009 - Universal Music Jazz has released in their series Écoutez le Cinéma! one of the best remastered John Barry Polydor albums, Americans. This album was a real LP collector item and now you can have it on CD with some bonus tracks from other Polydor re-recorded filmmusic titles from older LP-albums: Orson Welles' great mysteries; The Dove; Follow Me; The Adventurer. All together wonderfull music from John Barry with a very dynamic good sound. The music should be well known by all Barry fans, - but if not - the American album is not filmmusic. This is a symphonic jazz-suite of the best from the composer. If you are a Barry fan you have to have this album and if not you must have it if you like jazz music. This recordings were made in 1972/74/76 but sound still as fresh as the day they were recorded in Hollywood and in London. For some reason the original LP artwork has not been used, - but anyway - enjoy! (Review by Arne Dupont).
