Music Jazz/soundtrack
Notes Moochin’ About is the brainchild of Jason Lee Lazell and Jazzwise magazine journalist Selwyn Harris. As I’ve noted before, we’re living in a time of incredible musical abundance with back catalogues being sold for a song. Often, though not always, the music isn’t done justice in terms of its presentation. Moochin’ About is clearly an exception, not only is the packaging itself handsomely done, but the liner notes are extensive and clearly written by experts who are passionate about their subjects. The 15 soundtracks all date from the 1950s and were composed by the likes of Duke Ellington, John Lewis, Elmer Bernstein and Charles Mingus. They come both from classics like A Streetcar Named Desire, Sweet Smell of Success and The Man With The Golden Arm as well as lesser-known fare (at least to me) such as Private Hell 36 and Crime In The Streets. Needless to say they’re an absolute pleasure to discover.

Run, don’t walk, to order them.

Listen Please note that the quality of the sound of the YouTube video below is of far lower quality than the carefully remastering on the CDs!
