CD Reviews

The Stuff I Did While This Album Played
John P Bernat | Kingsport, TN USA | 05/23/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This album is best known for the "Love Theme from Romeo and Juliet," which is justly beautiful and deserves your attention.

But here's the thing: Mancini was a pianist. He composed his music on piano - which benefits it a lot. The tonal and dynamic range of his best stuff comes from the versatility of the piano as an instrument, for sure.

The concept behind this album was to showcase his touch and virtuosity on piano. And it does. But, in the early 1970s, this type of music was not appreciated by many.

However, my friends and I used it a lot to establish a mood. And it was our close, close friend and ally, I can tell you for certain."
Lush sound of Henry Mancini

"Another of my favorite albums from my youth. This particular recording I consider lush and romantic. The same goes for his album, Six Hours Past Sunset. You could always count on Henry Mancini to produce some great easy listening music."
