RUNNING"THE GAUNTLET"WITH JERRY FIELDING
charles levenson | Beachwood, N.J. United States | 08/23/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"ONE OF ACTOR CLINT EASTWOOD'S POST-DIRTY HARRY COP FILMS,"THE GAUNTLET"BOASTS A FINE,JAZZ-ORIENTED SCORE BY THE LATE JERRY FIELDING.FIELDING WROTE SEVERAL SCORES FOR EASTWOOD FILMS,AMONG WHICH ARE "THE ENFORCER"(THE SECOND DIRTY HARRY OPUS,AND,ALAS,NOT YET AVAILABLE ON CD)"THE OUTLAW JOSEY WALES",BUT WITH"THE GAUNTLET"FIELDING HAS CREATED A MINOR MASTERPIECE.THE OPENING THEME,A LAID-BACK EASY JAZZ OFFERING,SETS THE TONE FOR MUCH OF WHAT FOLLOWS,BUT DON'T CONFUSE THIS MUSIC WITH THE CURRENT CROP OF KENNY-G INSPIRED SOPORIFIC STUFF-NO!FIELDING'S MUSIC SOARS WHEN IT HAS TO SOAR,AND PENETRATES INTO THE VERY MARROW OF ANY JAZZ FAN'S CONSCIOUSNESS>IT IS GOOD STUFF"
Nice, but...

"This CD had some great tunes from the movie, but I think they would have been better off including it with other music that was in the movie as well. At only 31 minutes long (less than a typical jazz CD of that era, there is much disc space left for additional music, especially after spending $30.00 for the CD!"
Oh Yeah....

"Five stars aren't enough for this amazing soundtrack. If you're into jazz, and especially into a (then) new jazz trumpet player named Jon Faddis, then it's going to blow you away. Jerry Fielding wrote a remarkable score that let a phenomenal jazz artist take the roof off. Reminiscent of another great jazz soundtrack of the late-20th century -- Johnny Keating's "Hotel.""
