Who Is Killing The Great Chefs Of Europe? (1978) (Henry Mancini)

I haven't put up anything by Mancini in a while so I thought I'd put this up. Well, most of the Mancini albums have been posted all over the net, so there aren't that many left that I could put up anyway, now that I think about it. There are some of his more recent albums, but to be honest, some of those are a little disappointing. But I think it was just the fact that he was constrained to compose in a different style from his earlier movies and albums.

By the time he hit the 1980's & '90's, he couldn't orchestrate a movie in the way he could in the 1960's because of the different demand of the films and the changing style of music, and I think that was one of his great strengths as a composer. And as much as it pains me to say, he seemed to lose that knack to compose really memorable melodies in some of his later films, but maybe I'm judging him too harshly. He seemed to do it so easily with one hit after another in the 60's that you feel a little disappointed when the later scores don't live up to that standard.

But this score from 1978 is a really good one. It's to the Jacqueline Bisset / George Segal comedy mystery (a.k.a. 'Someone Is Killing The Great Chefs of Europe' or 'Too Many Chefs'). I think you'll like it.

Now that I think about it, some of the blogs who were sharing Mancini have gone away, like Ibiza (though if you hurry you can still get them over there, I think), so it might be legitimate to make some of them available again. Hmmm, I'll have to think about that.

Well, anyway enjoy this nice score!
