The Pawnbroker/The Deadly Affair (Score)
by Quincy Jones
Released: Jan 1966
Label: Verve Records
This 2-for-1 offer puts Jones' groundbreaking score to The Pawnbroker next to the more obscure Deadly Affair. While the latter explores a bittersweet Bossa Nova theme in various contexts, the former finds Jones using every jazz trick in the book to give a musical portrait of New York and one of its loneliest, most alienated inhabitants...a Holocaust survivor.
