Format: Audio CD
Taken from the film Playing By Heart with an all star cast including Sean Connery, Gillian Anderson, Angelina Jolie, Dennis Quaid and more, this cd is a great find whether you have seen the film or not. John Barry, who is perhaps better known for his scoring of the Bond films creates the perfect late night atmosphere with this mellow, chill out jazz style. Even if you are not a fan of jazz this cd is still great. It moves from emotional strings to soulful trumpets with beautiful piano parts. This cd is perfect to listen to during the evening as it whisks you into a state of relaxation. The perfect gift for someone who likes the film, or likes John Barry or is a fan of late night chill out music.

Format: Audio CD
I had heard John Barry interviewed on NPR online in 1998 and he played the theme song to this movie. I was just blown away. I had to download the file, I remember, so I was able to play it many many times, but this was way before mp3 files were popular, so the only time I could listen to it was when I was at the computer.

I thought about it for years, really. Silly, I know-- but I really loved the music and I imagined that I could play it on the piano well if I could just find the sheet music to it, too (I can't play by ear :( ). I looked periodically over the years but could never find it. And, when I actually did find it, I was very confused because I found the OTHER soundtrack-- which was not what I was looking for.

So, finally, several years ago, I found this cd. And, the whole thing is superb. I don't listen to it every day nor every week, but when I do, I am completely transported-- it's a perfect evening cd or rainy day cd. Or, actually, anytime, if you have some quiet time that isn't constantly interrupted.

I reviewed this today because I came upon the listing when I did my periodic search for the sheet music. That is still unavailable and I'm still disappointed!

Beauty, Romance, Botti, Baker.... 10 July 2000
By 9 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"Playing by Heart" never fails to induce a depth of emotion in the listener from its yearning, twilight-evening feel; watching the ripples on a pond in the night time, dreaming of past and future moments with the cherished one that we hold in our heart.
A dear friend introduced me to Chris Botti, but he warned me not to listen to too much all at once for fear of an overwhelming melancholy that would surely befall me. Whether melancholy is the right word, I'm not sure - it's perhaps the sweetness of a lingering memory, the dreamlike quality of Botti, Baker et al that makes an impression. To coin an overused phrase, it is a hauntingly beautiful collection of pieces that soar somewhere between the unspoken mystery of the heart and the ethereal no-mans-land between body and spirit. Listeners beware its overt romantic influence.

By richard scafonas - Published on Amazon.com

Well, Chris Botti has done it again. He has created trumpet music that is relaxing,suggestive,and warm. This is a must CD for any jazz fan. In fact,this is a great CD to introduce a friend to the wonderful world of jazz.

Absolutely stunning 29 Jan. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
John Barry just seems to get better and better. This music deserves to be included among his best. Chris Botti's trumpet playing only adds to the haunting beauty and brilliance of this very special music. I thank John Barry, Chris Botti and Chet Baker for their wonderful talents.

Bittersweet, Pensive and Soulful 4 Jun. 2000
By "krkohl2" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This music is a perfect match for a rainy, cool day. Rainy days can be nice. This music makes you stop and think about life. Chris Botti's trumpet is always smooth and melodic. John Barry is one of the great composers of our time. (Think 007 themes).
You can immediately pick out the Chet Baker tunes in this CD. These songs transport you back to a speakeasy bar in the 50s. You feel you're in a smokey bar way after midnight contemplating life's troubles. This is an excellent CD to introduce or reintroduce yourself to Chet Baker, Chris Botti and John Barry.

One of the few recent scores from the master 24 May 2005
By James Luckard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Sadly, John Barry seems to be basically retired now. He hasn't scored a film since "Enigma" back in 2000. This was the film he did immediately before that, and while most of his score was dumped from the final theatrical version of "Playing By Heart," this album presents the score as he intended it, along with a few key pieces by Chet Baker that inspired the filmmakers and Barry.

This is not the Barry of the James Bond films, doing big, brassy orchestral sounds. Instead, we get a thoughtful, moody, jazzy Barry, closer to his roots in 50's clubs.

Reading the liner notes, with the director gushing about how perfect Barry was for the film, is a bit odd, since he proceeded to replace almost all of Barry's music with another composer. Still, this doesn't diminish the power of Barry's compositions.

I'm just glad we get to hear them, since rejected scores are almost always locked away in a vault somewhere. This music is too good for that, and somebody was thinking straight and knew this. Thank you to whoever approved the release of this album, it's unforgettable.
