Product Description

Product Description

Released on the Moochin' About Label, collected together for the first time... The groundbreaking jazz-inspired scores that became the original soundtrack to youth rebellion and the beat generation of the 1950s THE WILD ONE/CRIME IN THE STREETS/I WANT TO LIVE/LES TRICHEURS/PARIS BLUES/THE SUBTERRANEANS/SHADOWS/THE CONNECTION Best ever quality digital remastering ... the 2nd box set in the Jazz on Film series following last year s Vol.1 Film Noir is not just a collection containing some of the greatest jazz film scores ever made, but it also tells the story of how jazz (mostly drawing from the bebop that was one of the defining American subcultural and artistic developments of the post-war era) became the soundtrack to films based around the emerging anti-establishment youth movements of the era. Gathered together for the first time, here are 8 remastered film scores on 5 discs in an exclusively designed, deluxe box set put together by specialist CD compilation label producer Jason Lee Lazell, based on the jazzwise page of the same name... All original scores have been enhanced by high quality, professional jazz-specialist digital remastering surpassing that of any previous CD releases for the scores. The box set includes a colourful 60-page booklet with extensive, in-depth sleeve notes... Also available on the label... MOOCHIN01 JAZZ ON FILM...NOIR MOOCHIN03 JAZZ ON FILM...CHET BAKER - ITALIAN MOVIES MOOCHIN04 JAZZ ON FILM...THE NEW WAVE and coming soon... MOOCHIN05...JAZZ ON FILM...BIOPICS


These two amazing sets, issued in 2011 (Film Noir) and 2012 (Beat, Square & Cool), put in circulation near-perfect audio restorations of some of the most famous and/or influential jazz-oriented film scores of the 1950s and early 60s.The brainchild of Jason Lee Lazell, these sets were issued by his new label Moochin About in conjunction with the excellent British magazine Jazzwise I still can t get over the stunning sound quality of these remastered soundtracks. Despite the mono sound, they all sound as crisp and clean as a newly-minted dollar bill. Even the bass and cymbal playing sounds natural, and those are always the two most difficult sounds to rip from a movie soundtrack, particularly ones of this vintage --Lynn René Bayley - Fanfare Magazine

I normally don't review something that others have so as to not waste anyone's time. But this is something more jazz fans need to know about. Hopefully in some small way music fans will read this and take a chance on this great collection of music. I'm not a "soundtrack" fan, but this series contains some good jazz performances. This box set is filled with some very fine jazz from the 1950's to the early 1960's. This is a continuation of the great soundtracks (ST's) collected into several box sets from the Moochin' About label. And this set may be better than the first volume, depending on your tastes in movies. Like the first set, this has great digitally remastered sound, and a very informative 60 page booklet, with info on both each film and it's respective music. Also included are personnel and recording dates, and photos from each movie. The sleeves have great graphics on the fronts that include the STs on each disc in a "street poster" style, with titles on the backs of the sleeves. Everything fits inside a thick lidded box with cool graphics on the front.

There's eight ST's here, and it's a toss-up as to which is the best. In the end they all have something to offer the jazz/ST fan. This is music that's about blue jean/ leather jacket wearing tough guys (and gals), jazz musicians, and other outsiders--all looking for "kicks" while rebelling against society at large. And it's appeal is that certain rebellious "thing" deep inside all of us that we all can identify with that's found in both the movie and the music. The music is moody, swinging, sensuous, groovy, and jazzy. Check some of the movie titles--"The Subterraneans", The Connection", "Paris Blues", "I Want To Live", "The Wild One"--and you'll begin to get the idea. Every ST here is well worth hearing, and multiple listenings will reward you with a deeper appreciation of the music and the movie if you're a movie viewer. Like I said, I'm not much of a movie fan, but this series of ST's is different.

And here I have to mention the latest set in this series, "Jazz On Film: The New Wave", due to be released in February 2014. I've had this new box set for a while now, and it has some good/great jazz from Miles Davis, the Modern Jazz Quartet, and Art Blakey & the Jazz Messengers, among others. Don't let the title throw you off. This box set too contains some very worthwhile music, and is similar in design to both this and the first collection.

In a nutshell--if you're a fan of ST's in general, or a fan of movies from this period, or simply a jazz fan (like me)--you'll like this collection. Hopefully it'll become readily available at a more reasonable price in the near future. This series is released on a small label, so who knows about availability--hopefully these editions will be around for a long time. Jazz fans--don't let this box set (or the previous volume) slip by. It's a worthwhile addition to your music library.

Vol-2 Jazz on Films 10 Feb. 2013
By Robert I. Cohen - Published on

Just what I wanted and loved the set. Thinking of purchasing Vol-1.
Haven't heard some of these in years and would probably like to see some of the Jazz on Films.

About the best of this genre that I have found 9 Aug. 2013
By Electric Eclectic - Published on
Verified Purchase
This collection along with Vol. 1 (Film Noir) are the best collections of jazz on film that I have found. I have purchased some other collections and some single CDs. I wasn't that crazy about Terrence Blanchard's Jazz In Film (Film Score Anthology)'s takes on classic movie themes until I started listening to what else was available. Now I like Blanchard's version more than many of the originals.
