MUSIC FOR THE MOVIES OF CLINT EASTWOOD is a memorable journey through the music of Eastwood movies, and a pleasure to listen to. The endearing love of jazz which Eastwood has had since his mother introduced him to the family piano and 78rpm records of jazz pianist Fats Waller when Eastwood was a child has always been a major influence in Eastwood's life, a fact many of his fans are not aware of until recent years. Eastwood loves jazz and the music is found in his films.
There are 23 tracks on this collection, including "Theme From Rawhide," "Theme From Pale Rider," "Theme From Dirty Harry," "Amanda's Theme From Tightrope," "Espacio from Space Cowboys," and "Doe Eyes," to list but a few. Following these film themes is the remarkable "Clint Eastwood: An American Filmmaker Suite" which contains a lot of contemporary jazz material such as "Out of the Shadows," "Day Dreams," "The Piano Player," "I Love Jazz," among others.
This is an enjoyable collection, one which jazz collectors and fans of Clint Eastwood will want to have in their home music libraries. MUSIC FOR THE MOVIES OF CLINT EASTWOOD is a winner and earns its five-star rating with flawless arrangements and creativity. Excellent.
