This is easy listening Henry Mancini, not jazzy “Peter Gunn” Henry Mancini, but darn good easy listening. As with the other Vocalion surround Mancini releases, what really makes this worth the listen is the nicely balanced surround mix. There are no gimmicks. Surround is used here to spread out the music and give it depth, which makes it perfect for easy listening (and perhaps, an accompanying martini at the end of a hectic day).

Coming off a double Oscar win for his Breakfast at Tiffany’s score, Henry Mancini produced this score for the Howard Hawks-directed, John Wayne-starring safari comedy. This is at first a fun blend of jazz and Afro-exotica, jungle drums mixed with a classic bop combo. Elsewhere, however, the soundtrack opts for some pleasant, but very Western jazz, only stopping for the African instrument-sampler “The Sounds of Hatari,” which features some nice treated piano. The filmmakers were probably hoping that the Mercer and Carmichael song “Just for Tonight” would be as much a success as Tiffany’s “Moon River,” but if Hatari! is memorable for anything, it’s for the incredibly goofy “Baby Elephant Walk,” which has gone on to be infamous musical shorthand for kookiness of any stripe. Get this tune in your head and it sticks. – Ted Mills

Henry Mancini – Six Hours Past Sunset & A Warm Shade Of Ivory (2016) [2.0 & 5.1] {PS3 ISO + FLAC}

Henry Mancini – Six Hours Past Sunset & A Warm Shade Of Ivory (1969/2016)
PS3 Rip | SACD ISO | DST64 2.0 & 5.1 > 1-bit/2.8224 MHz | 63:47 minutes | Scans included | 3,44 GB
or FLAC 2.0 Stereo (converted with foobar2000 to tracks) 24bit/88,2 kHz | Scans included | 1,15 GB
Genre: Jazz, Easy Listening

Two laidback gems from Henry Mancini – back to back on a single CD! Six Hours Past Sunset is moody and mellow – and perfect for late nite listening! The album has the tinkling piano of Mancini set over lush orchestrations – breezy, yet dark at the same time, outwardly simple, but filled with complex riffing and sophisticated washes of color and emotion. The larger group features a few horn soloists, but the real focus is on Mancini’s piano – which peppers each track with sprinkles of sound, darting in and out of the more complicated arrangements. Titles include “Traces”, “Midnight Cowboy”, “Two For The Road”, “Didn’t We”, “Six Hours Past Sunset”, and “Theme From The Fox”. Warm Shade Of Ivory is lovely late nite Mancini! The album has Mr. M’s tinkling piano set amidst dark moody arrangements that bank the piano in warm washes of strings and light lilting rhythms – all moving at a slow somber pace that’s perfect for a summer night with the lights down low, the windows open, relaxing in a big easy chair with a drink while the breeze and the sounds of the summer waft over the room. The record is subtle, but a wonderful example of Mancini’s continuing instrumental genius. Titles include “Watch What Happens”, “Day In The Life Of A Fool”, “Cycles”, “Meditation”, “When I Look In Your Eyes”, and “Moment To Moment”.

Henry Mancini’s adventurous score for the 1962 thriller Experiment in Terror is one of the composer’s many classic collaborations with director Blake Edwards. Released a year after Breakfast at Tiffany’s and a year before The Pink Panther, it’s a must for any level of Mancini collector, not because it’s so representative of his work at the time but because it’s extra quirky and diverse with jazzy lounge pieces, melancholy piano, and eerie suspense passages, as well as guitar rock (“Golden Gate Twist”) and even a nod to the flapper era with the “Charleston”-like “The Good Old Days.” The score was recorded earlier that year at RCA Victor’s Music Center of the World by Henry Mancini & His Orchestra.

Two cool Henry Mancini album – one soundtrack, and one sweet set of instrumentals! Return Of The Pink Panther is a surprisingly groovy record – and one that’s very different from the original Pink Panther soundtrack. Symphonic Soul is one of Henry Mancini’s grooviest LPs from the 70s – a mixture of tight large arrangements with a smooth funky edge, similar to some of his best soundtrack work at the time. The rhythm section is great – with Harvey Mason on drums and Joe Sample on keyboards, and guitar by David T Walker and Dennis Budimir – and the album also features some cool solos on instruments like African finger piano and piccolo trumpet.
