John Dankworth's Movies 'N' Me
10-Jun-2010 - The mercurial talents of the late John Dankworth (1927-2010) are celebrated in this Vocalion release, comprising JD's 1974 Movies 'N' Me album, marking the only occasion on which he recorded for the RCA label. As the title suggests, it was an opportunity for Dankworth to explore his considerable back catalogue of film themes, dressing them in attractive new arrangements that took full advantage of the rhythms and sounds of the 1970s. Of course, being a Dankworth album, the all-important jazz element is to the fore, the music best described as a happy marriage between big band, funk and jazz. Remastered from the original analogue tapes. First time on CD. the themes from Modesty Blaise, from Darling, the Morgan theme from Morgan  A Suitable Case For Treatment, the theme from Return From The Ashes, the All Gone theme from The Servant, to name a few. 
Available from Amazon UK and Vocalion Records.
