Mannix Lalo Schifrin Paramount PAS 5004, 1968
Mannix album cover

Another great album from the time when Schifrin was really making his mark in the soundtrack industry. Very hard to find and thus far not reissued, the Mannix soundtrack is a strong blend of crime jazz and edgy late 60's funk. By this stage elements of Schifrin's later work are starting to appear - some of this album is reminiscent of Dirty Harry. Similar in feel to Bullitt with an extra funk edge. The theme's an excellent jazz waltz; if you prefer a harder groove, listen to "Fear" and "The Shadow".

Overall Rating: 5
