Modesty Blaise John Dankworth 20th Century Fox 4182, 1966
Modesty Blaise album cover

British jazz giant John Dankworth was responsible for several strong jazz-influenced 1960s scores, and this album should be numbered amongst the best. Groovy and kitsch in places (in keeping with the wacky film), dark and menacing in others, it's entertaining and stimulating listening. Jazz and pop are blended in equal measure. Look out for the fabulous organ-driven instrumental version of the theme - shagadelic!

Overall Rating: 4
