I'm digging the 5 CD set 'Jazz on Film - Film Noir' box set from Moochin About records. Excellent!

I was especially impressed with the exotica influences of the Henry Mancini song 'Background to Murder' from the movie 'Touch of Evil' ....... starts very soothing, and ends with a great brassy 'Spy Jazz' brass.

Listen to the song here.

Very cool! I would buy this CD set, but it is only music from 5 movies, it seems. There were so many movies produced in the late 50's/early 60's that had Jazz in the soundtracks...couple of my favorites are "I want to live" and "the sandpiper"

The 'Moochin About' label has just released a second set of 1950's jazz soundtracks - 8 films, on 5 CDs. This second set is titled 'Jazz on Film . .. Beat, Square, and Cool' and it includes the following films

- The Wild One (Leith Stevens / Shorty Rogers)
- Crime in the Streets (Franz Waxman)
- I Want to Live (Johnny Mandel)
- Les Tricheurs (Norman Gratz' JATP)
- Paris Blues (Duke Ellington)
- The Subterraneans (Andre Previn)
- Shadows (Charlie Mingus)
- The Connection (Freddie Redd)

I just received this set, and have not listened to it yet. I was so impressed with the overall quality of the first set, that I didn't hesitate to order the second.

Here is the website for the Moochin About label, with a better description of both box sets.
