Released:
Label: Legacy/CBS/Sony
Ken Burns' documentary series have become so big that they are now more national events than television shows. This companion soundtrack collects new, retro-sounding material and vintage swing tunes to help create an emotional portrait of the era in which World War II took place, not of the war itself. This approach works, and we'll pick Duke Ellington's "Solitude" as the greatest moment (the song was also heard in Saving Private Ryan). Norah Jones' "American Anthem" is that rare patriotic hymn that also acknowledges that everything was far from rosy during America's finest hour.
