I'm not sure I can find words to describe how fantastic this CD is. As a stand-alone album it is second-to-none, ranging from the laid-back (Aftermath of love) to the frantic (Music to interrogate by); the beautifully optimistic(Cantata for combo) to the darkly atmospheric (Shifting Gears), and showcasing the coniderable talents of Lalo's band - the flautist is particularly impressive. When you see the film it is apparent how talented Schiffrin is at picking up the mood of a scene and fitting the music to it - just listen to "Ice Pick Mike", my favourite song on the album. Oh, and of course don't forget the memorable title track, one of the all-time great movie themes. This is quintessential 60s stuff, with a Latin flavour thrown in, and even if you haven't seen the film, you really HAVE TO hear this music.
