Stiletto Sid Ramin Columbia OS 3360, 1969
Stiletto album cover

Sid Ramin, a composer associated with Leonard Bernstein for much of his career, moved to Hollywood in the early 1960s. He scored this Harold Robbins thriller in an expansive, big band style. You'll recognise the theme immediately - it's a great, big band easy listening floorshaker. A magnificent brass section drive the majority of the album; the tracks are overlaid with organ and the foundations are built on a strong rhythm section. Several tracks have a quieter, bossa nova 'easy' feel. Overall, very similar in style to some of Lalo Schifrin's 1960s material.

Overall Rating: 4
