As a compilation of Henry Mancini's most known works, this album boasts with such classics as the theme from Pink Panther and the theme from the ancient detective series Peter Gunn. And believe me, these are not performed by some sissy symphony orchestra, but by nostalgic jazz goups guaranteed to bring you that shady, smoky speakeasy feeling.

It's amazing how timeless much of Mancini's work is. This CD has all his best work and more (other composers too) and stays in my permanently acccessible collection and gets played as regularly as any other CD. Essential for anybody's collection with isntantly evocative and scene setting tracks from beginning to end.

Don't be fooled by the title of this disc. This is not specifically Mancini as composer, but as composer AND arranger. Around 11 of the 24 tracks are his arrangements of music by others - John Barry, Burt Bacharach, Michel Legrand et al. Having said this, it is great to hear popular Mancini favourites like the Pink Panther Theme as well as less well-known film music from Days of Wine and Roses, Mr Lucky or Peter Gunn. The sound quality is good and the performances sparkle. The sleeve notes only mention publication dates and publishers of the printed scores, rather than giving details of the orchestras and dates and venues of the recordings we are hearing - which is a pity. Presumably Mancini is conducting all the pieces, but again, the sleeve notes do not confirm this. However, this is a disc to enjoy: and listen out for the comical and whackily orchestrated Baby Elephant Walk.

A great selection of tracks. Some you'll recognise and maybe some you won't. Lush cinematic quality that's perfect for chilling out or having in the background whilst you have things to do.
