Editorial Reviews

Jon Favreau is back in the writer/ actor /director chair with Chef, his latest concoction. It is a return to his indie roots peppered with appearances from close friends such as Robert Downey Jr., Dustin Hoffman, Scarlett Johansson and the irresistible Sofia Vergara. A road trip from Miami via New Orleans, Austin to LA, or from Salsa to Brass Band, Country & Hip Hop.In the words of Variety's Joe Leydon: "The eclectic mix of musical selections chosen by music supervisor Mathieu Schreyer could encourage many ticket-buyers to rush home and download the entire soundtrack."

"Chef: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack" (17 tracks; 73 min.) brings the songs that are featured in Jon Favreau's excellent new movie called "Chef" (more on the movie later). As I very much enjoyed the music that is playing in the movie, and it even has a pivotal role in the movie, I made a mental note to myself to be sure to check out the soundtrack.

The songs featured in this collection plays pretty much in the same order as they appear in the movie. We start off with Pete Rodriguez's "I Like It Like That", and the positive vibes can immediately be felt. The movie has a strong Cuban (maybe I should say American-Cuban) element to it, so there are quite a few songs that either are influenced by that sound, or are outright performed in that style. Check out Roberto Roena's "Que Se Sepa", and later on Gente de Zona's "Homenaje Al Beny (Castellano Que Bueno Baila Usted)". But the very best of them come from Perico Hernandez, whose band we see perform several songs in the movie itself, including a delightful Cuban take on Santana's "Oye Como Va" and also "La Quimbumbia". The movie also goes to New Orleans, and so we get a couple of tracks influenced by that style of music, including a hilarious cover of Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing" by the Hot 8 Brass Band. When the movie goes to Austin for a few scenes, I was delighted to see that they had Gary Clark Jr. perform in the movie, and this is also included here ("When My Train Pulls In", the original studio version of which appears on his excellent album "Blak and Blu"). Bottom line, I couldn't be more pleased about this soundtrack. It's got everything that was in the movie, and in the right order. What more could you possibly ask for?

The music alone from this film is well worth the ticket price. CHECK it out!!!! Some great stuff with a great Latino mix.

Saw the movie last night. It and the soundtrack are both fantastic. From hip hop to jazz to rock n roll.

Bought the album from my iPhone as soon as I left the theater. Just as I fell in love with Jon Favreau and Swingers - the movie and excellent soundtrack back in 1996 I was over the moon once again 18 years later! I found myself tapping along with the music throughout the entire movie. Absolutely fantastic movie AND soundtrack!

This has rapidly become one of my all time favorite films. Ok, ok, so some of the high-brow critics are correct in that it is not one of the deepest and most sophisticated films around. But on the other hand it pushes all of my buttons. Family, comedy, romanticism, drama, redemption, parent-child relationship, and .... FOOD!! The sound track is terrific, and it pushes all my musical buttons as well. And as for the critics, well, screw them. What do they know? Not much, as this move so delightfully points out. Highly recommended.

I gave it solid 4 stars because it was missing great classic songs from Al Green "Tired of being alone", Joe Cuba's "Bang Bang" and salsa Legends Ray Barretto's "Acid" and Willie Colon & Hector Lavoe's "The Hustler"
