Loved the feel of this album. The style is so 60s unless, of course you're a big band jazz fan in which case it will still feel current.

Cool and Crisp 14 Nov. 2012
By Brent Butler - Published on Amazon.com

This first thing I like to know about an MP3 album is how it compares to physical media. No worries on that account here ... this album sounds great on MP3. The instruments sound crisp and detailed. The range is excellent, there is no distortion at the higher and lower ends. The stereo separation is pleasing.

How about the music itself? It's cool jazz, arranged to fit the style and the mood of late 50s - early 60s TV ... and TV jazz in those days was very fine indeed. The skill of the musicians in these numbers is top notch. The notes on the horns are pure and the piano play had a light and adroit touch. You'd swear the bass was across the room from you.

Of course this album isn't really a soundtrack. The classic theme from the show is reinterpreted here, not recreated. This is a studio album of music that might have appeared in the show, but arranged for these studio performances as full bodied jazz ... not the light background versions that would have accompanied the action on film.

On one point I was a bit conflicted about whether to be disappointed or smug. One of the TV shows had a jazz combo at Dino's (next door to the agency's office) doing a unique turn on the theme song as a full musical number. The WB shows of that day were relaxed enough to do that, for example every Hawaiian Eye had a full musical number sung by Connie Stevens. I happened to record that 77 Sunset Strip show years ago when it played on the then "Good Life TV Network", and eventually managed to transfer it to my computer. There probably aren't many people with a recording of that number. I was halfway expecting it to be on this album (when I thought it might be a soundtrack). It would have given me a better recording of it, but as it is I'm still one of probably a very few people to possess that. LOL

I particularly like the Cha Cha arrangement of the theme. There is also a version of the theme in a blues arrangement a la "Harlem Nocturne" (the music used as the theme for the Mike Hammer TV series). A swing arrangement is also included.

To wrap this up, the MP3 album sounds great. The jazz is all kinds of fun to listen to, performed by real pros. These tracks are upbeat, and they'll keep you moving while you listen. ;-)

Highly recommended.
The jazz on this is fantastic. Very similar to some of Mancini's Peter Gunn ... 22 Nov. 2014
