Mike ran across a soundtrack or two in his library excursions and hence an episode that's just what it says on the tin—a look at four soundtracks by jazz musicians. We explore which efforts work as "albums" and which are more a series of useful cues and snippets that don't necessarily create a coherent listening experience with no pictures on offer. Plus, as a bonus Mike encapsulates each film so you can decide if you'd like to see—or skip—the inspiration behind the music. Who knew Charles Bronson could act? Pat didn't.
