The Latest Back Story In Print Side Bets At Large Extras
"A dark sedan cruising at night through the seedy streets of Skid Row ... a beautiful woman in a gown and fur coat disappearing into an alleyway ... these are the sin-city images that the music of the Matthew Herbert Big Band creates in the opening segment of this haunting album of pieces from modern film noirs. While some are familiar and expected (Bernard Hermann's "Taxi Driver" and "The Wrong Man"), others are from U.S. and foreign films not identified. Eddie Muller, San Francisco's expert on Hollywood noir, has written an alluring introduction pointing out the new trends in contemporary noir music as opposed to the Miklos Rozsa age, but still giving credit to those represented here: Howard Shore, John Morris, Terence Blanchard, Pino Donaggio, Angelo Badalamenti and others. Jazzy and dark ... sax and violence projected into a dangerous night."
—John Stanley, S.F. Chronicle
