Dialogue and music recording from USA's Dot records offers moments of high hilarity as Oscar and Felix go at each others throats in Neal Simon's lunitic take on life in New York City, "The Odd Couple"!
Score composed by the always cool Neal Hefti is a true original in the annals of 60's film music!
For about 14 glorious years an occasional film was enhanced by the energizing sounds of big band legend and Basie arranger Hefti who power packed everything he touched with slick jazz influenced music otherwise impossible to describe!
Mostly comedies are those films with a rare drama (Synanon, Harlow) and a western (Duel At Diablo) tossed into the mix. All are top drawer and well worth the time of any listener interested in exceptional and well executed music in a league of it's own! *****
