Boeing Boeing (1965 Soundtrack) (Neal Hefti)

Here's another Neal Hefti soundtrack. It's to the Jerry Lewis / Tony Curtis farce that is coincidentally called, 'Boeing Boeing'. I wouldn't say that this is Neal Hefti's best album, but it's not bad. So-so Hefti is still better than a lot of albums I could think of, but I can't help but think that maybe if the movie had been better, he would've been more inspired.

In the past on this blog, I've said things like, 'this may not have been the best movie in the world, but it was still enjoyable', but in this case I would rate it one notch below that. It was watchable, but safe to say, not either of those actors' best work. But it is probably one of the only, if not the only, film in which I can remember Jerry Lewis playing a more mature best friend role. He's played mature roles and played sidekick roles, but never usually together.

Now this has nothing to do with the music, but you're probably used to that by now. Come to think of it, there's another reason why I don't talk a lot about the music on this blog. It's not just because I'm terrible at describing music (which you must know by now), although that's the main reason. But the other reason is because it really doesn't matter what I say. I could say this was the worst album in the history of sound-making and people would still want to download it because it was Neal Hefti. Conversely, I could say that this was my favorite album in my entire collection and if people didn't care about it, they still wouldn't download it. I don't say that with any bitterness, but just as an observation. It's just the nature of the way people decide to download things and the way in which they read blogs.

People tend to skip over things they think they're not interested in and download things more because there's, say, an album cover or some other reason that doesn't have anything to do with the music. It makes perfect sense and is understandable, but it's only a shame that people miss out on things they might like. Case in point: I know people who like film scores would like Bernard Herrmann, but because of the way they read blogs, they overlook good stuff. Same thing goes for 'Flying Themes'.

What does all that have to do with Neal Hefti and the soundtrack to 'Boeing Boeing'? Actually, I think that was the plot of the movie. They were way ahead of their time in 1965 making their movie about blogs and all. No, wait. It has absolutely nothing to do with this score. Enjoy!!

T'was a pleasure to read your comments on the film score and You're totally right: The music is to be considered separate from the films. I am not interested in the film but in the composer/arranger and the Hefti-program is great music anyway.
So keep in mind that in outer space there might exist lots of people like me who appreciate very much your work on re-publishing the older soundtrack gems.

Thanx a lot

Well, that's awfully nice of you to say. Thanks so much for the words of encouragement! They're very much appreciated. It's nice to know there are people out there (in outer space) who feel that way! :))))
