Album Description

Mysterious, melancholy and menacing, JAZZ NOIR offers a fresh spin on crime jazz, film noir and timeless classics. Selections include classic movie themes from Touch of Evil, Laura, Chinatown, Vertigo, Taxi Driver, Blues In The Night, Twin Peaks, Toute Une Vie, High Wall, The Long Goodbye and Stormy Weather, modern standards Estate, Caravan, Here’s Looking At You and Golden Lady, and two originals: Film Noir (from a poem by Dana Gioia) and Crime Scenes, a San Francisco-inspired jazz suite with voiceover narration in the hardboiled style of Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler. The Papillon/BluePort Jazz release, Matheny's 11th album as leader, showcases the talents of “some of the most accomplished musicians in the western United States” (All About Jazz): Bill Anschell, Matt Clark, Nick Manson, Charles McNeal, Susan Pascal, Phil Sparks, Todd Strait, Akira Tana, Jay Thomas and John Wiitala. “In these grooves,” writes annotator Eddie Muller, “Matheny leads his crack crew through a sonic history of noir. Dmitri Matheny is an artist who manages to find beauty blooming in the darkest corners.”
