"Eversince after watching the film version of Agatha Christie's novel 'Evil Under The Sun', I was intrigued by the music used for the soundtrack. To my joy, it is a string of melodies by the great Cole Porter. It has been awhile for the soundtrack to be release on CD format and when it was release, I grab a copy of it and found it a little treasure to hear.
Music was arranged and conducted by John Lanchberry and he did a commendable job of using Cole Porter's music to enchance the mood of the film. Since the film is set in the late 30's, what better way than to celebrate Mr.Porter's music. All his familiar and popular tunes are here, including 'I've Got You Under My Skin', 'I Concentrate On You', 'Night and Day', 'Anything Goes' and 'Begin The Beguine' to mention a few.
John Lanchberry is not a stranger to film music. He has composed the music for the 1971 ballet film 'Tales Of Beatrix Potter', which is the highlight of his musical career. It is not surprising to have him to arrange a vast vault of standards by Cole Porter and to transform them into incidental music for a film.
There are 17 tracks on this CD and each of them tells a little story of their own and it is cleverly used to suit the mood of the film. I do enjoy listening to it as it envisions of an era where life was so different them. It is a really something to cherish."
I¿ve heard it probably 100 times in 5 months!!!!!!!!!

"That's true what I say- impossible to get tired of this CD!
I mean, it has little running time, but it's so precious that any fan of music of 30's and 40's music will be delighted. Well, maybe not any fan... This is a movie soundtrack! A soundtrack for a funny mystery one!
I have to say that John Lanchberry did an excellent work reconducting old Porter classics, fitting graciously in every scene of the film.
In other my reviews I usually talked of almost every track, but here that's impossible because each one includes so many tunes- many will look familiar to you- listen that fantastic, that crazy, that lovely "Dance Sequence".
To Poirot, Arlena, Daphne, Myra, Odell, Linda, etc nuts and I Concentrate On You, I've Got You Under My Skin, etc nuts-BUY IT NOW!!!"

"Cole Porter's music is so alive...every note and word is pure genius. That's all there is to it."
