The songs are mostly classics from the 1930's and 1940's like "Mood Indigo," "Black and Tan Fantasy," St. James Infirmary," and "Sophisticated Lady."
The style is somewhere between Rose's usual smooth big band and a jazzy nightclub sound. The sound closely resembles Henry Mancini's "Peter Gunn Theme." As the title suggests, much of the music could have been (and probably was) used in strip clubs in the 1960's.
This, however, is simply superb "night club" music. I can't believe there are not a thousand 5-star reviews of this album. This is more about "smoky sax" than it is "smokin' sex." This music is so evocative of big city glamour that is has me looking at the calendar to see if I can fit in a vacation to Chicago or NYC in the next few months. It has me thinking of Sam Slade working the streets, and James Bond working the room. Yes, you can visualize some beautiful babes swaying around lustfully on the stage under the warm glow of colored lights, but there is a casual elegance to the ambience, nothing particularly naughty. This is music from a more civilized age where fornication is only vaguely implied.
I will file this in my soundtracks collection, even though I do not believe it was originally created to be a soundtrack to any movie. But it seems like it should have been, as it captures the essence of, say, some dangerous character as he wanders the streets, alleyways, and swanky clubs of a big city on a cold night as he attempts to unravel some sinister mystery, one which involves a dead stranger, a suitcase full of loot, and a beautiful babe. Visual clichés like that readily flow through your head when you hear this. The songs here are as cosmopolitan as music can be.Read more ›
