Henry Mancini:

Chrome Dreams


Henry Mancini, "The Complete Peter Gunn", Chrome Dreams #_________ (2011).[2-CD Set]

Product Description:

Groundbreaking and enormously popular, Peter Gunn marked the moment in television where modern popular music began to be used as an integral part of the audience experience. The cool, suave title character was perfectly reflected in the urbane jazz written for the show by Henry Mancini. Mancini is, of course, one of the greatest ever composers for TV and film, winning several Oscars and becoming part of the cultural fabric of the 20th century. His music for Peter Gunn is collected here, including the familiar 'Peter Gunn Theme' alongside all the other tracks used during the series. Duane Eddy's celebrated version of the theme is also included, along with other alternative recordings of this iconic piece. In all, 49 tracks of modern but eminently listenable jazz that can take the listener back to the late 1950s when Mancini was discovering how far his talent could take him and his audience, while providing a brand new sonic experience that sounds as relevant today as when first released.
