World premiere release of the dynamic, emotional score by Dave Grusin for the Stuart Rosenberg cult mafia-film of 1984, starring Mickey Rourke, Eric Roberts and Daryl Hannah. A warm jazz-based tune opens an outstanding score range of styles: from rhythmic jazz-funk to electronic sounds, from full symphonic music to bittersweet piano pieces √ímade in the Grusin style√ì. In fact, this score is a delight for Grusin fans because it is a perfect compendium of his approaches, including the dramatically complex orchestrations of √íThe Yakuza√ì, the contemporary jazz sounds of √íTootsie√ì, the delicacy of √íThe Heart is a Lonely Hunter√ì and his subsequent noir score for √íMulholland Falls.√ì All can be found here.  In addition to his original score, Grusin adapts and conducts one of the most memorable and thematic uses of jazz standards in New York City√ïs cinematic history, all of them included in the √íextras√ì section of this album. Although this was a major work in the composer√ïs career, the album of √íThe Pope of Greenwich Village√ì was never released. Fortunately a complete set with the 24 multi-tracks session were preserved in the MGM vaults in mint condition. Every second of music composed, adapted and recorded by Dave Grusin has been included in this album. The 20-page booklet includes liner notes by Daniel Schweiger, with also provides exclusive interviews with Dave Grusin and producer Gene Kirkwood, who discuss the film√ïs production history and music.
