Great Sounds but Not a Soundtrack!
Lee Milligan | Danville, Ca USA | 11/28/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"There's little doubt that the music is great. Still, when it says soundtrack you would expect to hear Peggy Lee and Ella Fitzgerald sing the titles they performed in the movie, and they're not a part of this release.Its a shame too, since their voices represented some of the best parts of the movie. Still, the music is great."
No Better Blues
William J. Amrine | San Francisco, California | 02/17/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Actually, this album is mostly classic Twenties' jazz, played with a precision that, paradoxically, can only come from musicians who have mastered the improvisation that is jazz. Dick Cathcart's coronet is sharp and clear, and he punctuates his melodies with perfect tones, backed by Matty Matlock on clarinet and by other musicians of equal stature. Jack Webb narrates the list and poetically describes the age of jazz; the album is worth owning for Webb's comments alone. He states that "Somebody Loves Me" is his favorite song, and offers no excuses. I agree, and I think you'll place this album among your favorite jazz."

"This is a great re-release of the soundtrack from the film "Pete Kelly's Blues". The only downside is that it doesn't include the great vocals by Peggy Lee and Ella Fitzgerald. It is strictly an instrumental soundtrack. Hmmm, that makes me wonder how it can be called a "soundtrack" if there were vocals in the film and there are none here????"
