Henry Mancini's Hatari!
2-Mar-2017 - From Music on Vinyl comes a re-release of the score for Hatari. Henry Mancini produced the score for the Howard Hawks-directed, John Wayne-starring safari comedy Hatari! which included the well-known "Baby Elephant Walk". This is at first a fun blend of jazz and Afro-exotica, jungle drums mixed with a classic bop combo. Elsewhere, however, the soundtrack opts for some pleasant, but very Western jazz, only stopping for the African instrument-sampler "The Sounds of Hatari," which features some nice treated piano. The LP is 180 gram audiophile vinyl with a PVC protective sleeve. The first pressing is 500 individually numbered copies on yellow vinyl.
