This is a great ragtime jazz score by Marvin Hamlisch that for the most part is simply a great tribute to Scott Joplin, with wonderful arrangements and performances of some of Joplin's most famous piano rags. The style and mood perfectly fits the film's period and characters, creating a timeless and playful feel throughout. Hamlisch's arrangements seem perfect for Joplin's style and blend seamlessly with piano solo passages. It's a great soundtrack album in its own right.

There are many released versions of The Sting but I always thought the original LP album with the same cover was the best. Very pleased to have found that this is exactly what the CD is. Obviously much better quality than the vinyl album and a good buy.

This is the music of be happy, even when the subject is not happy and the tunes sad. The pleasure of playing this mysic can be heard. Marvin Hamlisch made a fabtastic arrangement and gave the movie the music it deserved. I still don't know if I would have liked the movie with music by say, Bob Dylan; But I sure like the music without the movie. The record is long since gone and gray.
This is a revival of happy music played by musicians who enjoyed playing this and that in itself is a rarity.

The Sting is an excellent piece of periodic entertainment from a decade in cinema that was exceptional at doing such period pieces. One aspect that it delivers well for its 1930s setting is Marvin Hamlisch's elegant piano music. Whilst the orchestration of Joplin's iconic composition, The Entertainer, maybe its most-fondly remembered piece, there are tons of other great instrumental pieces too, such as Merry-Go-Round, and the beautiful take on Joplin's Solace, which gamers may have heard whilst playing through Bioshock: Infinite.
Whilst for those those adore the film, it is an apparent no-brainer that you will enjoy hearing theses pieces in their own right, whilst novices of the film may enjoy Hamlisch's take on some classic Joplin pieces. For fans of this period of music, you will enjoy it, as it is too fun not to resist the charm of these lovely orchestrations.

I bought this as I wanted a recording of 'Solace', but as it turns out I already own the famous Joshua Rifkin recording, but had forgotten that! The recordings here are OK, but my reason for marking the CD down a bit is that these are not the original soundtrack recordings.

I believe Scott Joplin's music is now in the public domain, which means anybody can record it. Whoever recorded this, and its nobody I've ever heard of, has just stuck 'The Sting' on the album cover. Also there is no credit for Marvin Hamlish on this CD, and he was responsible for the original soundtrack.

So the music is fine, though not as outstanding as the other reviews might lead you to believe, but it is not the soundtrack from the film, which is what I thought I was buying. The proper soundtrack album is available, and if I'd used my eyes I'd have bought that. I'd recommend that, or the Joshua Rifkin recordings over this recording.

in the 70s
