mikrenz Not one, but two, stellar soundtracks from Robert Altman's film "Kansas City", a story about a kidnapping in 1934 Kansas City, featuring, among others, Harry Belafonte, Jennifer Jason-Leigh and Steve Buscemi, a funny-lookin' guy in just a general sorta way.
Produced by Hal Wilner, both soundtracks pull some great old standards out of the hat and give them the old-timey Kansas City treatment by an all-star band including David Murray, Joshua Redman, James Carter, Don Byron, David Fathead Newman Jr., Ron Carter, Olu Dara, plus a ton of others.
Creating studio-quality recordings while in costume and in character required some interesting high-tech hi-jinx by the crew filming it, which you can witness in a very interesting documentary of the whole recording and filming process sometimes shown on public television.
How's the movie itself ? I've no idea. Never seen it. But the music is smokin'! #kansascity #robertaltman #halwilner #harrybelafonte #stevebuscemi #davidmurray #oludara #davidfatheadnewman #joshuaredman #roncarter #donbyron
This one's for you @tyshaas.
