Henry Mancini's Moon River And Me
30-Mar-2012 - él Records has released Moon River And Me, with music by Henry Mancini, who is regarded by his peers, the critics and the public to be one of the giants of popular music. With a singular playfulness and style, "Hank” composed a legacy of music for film which broke with cinema's symphonic traditions and incorporated elements of jazz and popular music. His theme song for Blake Edwards' Breakfast at Tiffany's, the hauntingly beautiful Moon River (with lyrics by Johnny Mercer), perfectly encapsulates the mood of the era and is amongst the most celebrated compositions of the second half of the twentieth century.
