One of the few, but refined and slick soundtracks of Johnny Keating. This album features some classy jazz tracks, evoking a noble, James Bond -like atmosphere. The track »Key Case« reminds me of the »Incredibles« soundtrack by Michael Giacchino. »This Year« features a performance by singer Carmen McRae.
Mr. Keating’s orchestra has the typical clean, brassy signature sound here as well, a sound some may have become familiar with by his other soundtrack from the same year, Robbery.
