Two For The Road: The Music Of Henry Mancini
by Dave Grusin
Released: Jan 1996
Label: Grp Records
One jazz-tinged, Oscar-winning composer takes on another's legacy on this tribute to Henry Mancini. While Mancini's own arrangements of "Two For the Road," "Soldier In the Rain," and "Whistling Away The Dark" were perfect to begin with, you can't fault Grusin for putting his smooth stamp on them. Diana Krall and other guests help out.
