4.0 out of 5 stars Classic film tunes from the greatest composer of film tunes, February 21, 2009
This review is from: Mancini's Greatest Hits (Audio CD)
What?!! Nobody has reviewed this, in the history of Amazon?

Henry Mancini had a gift for melody that composers of any genre would be totally envious of. He was born in 1924, and by the time he was 28, he was in Hollywood, putting his genius to the page. His movie themes and soundtracks made great movies immortal, and mediocre movies memorable. (Obviously it's a subjective matter, but this music fan considers even such greats as John Williams and John Barry to be followers of leader Mancini.)

From the whimsy of "The Pink Panther" and "Baby Elephant Walk," to the intensity of "Peter Gunn," to the haunting beauty of "Moon River" or a personal favorite, the "Hatari" theme music... Mancini could truly set the mood.

Take Mancini's music and ask Erich Kunzel and the Cincinatti Pops Orchestra to put it to Telarc wax. How can you go wrong? You can't! This recording is essentially all orchestral, with occasional choral interludes, in "Dear Heart," "Charade," etc.

Close your eyes, sit back, and enjoy THIS journey!
