World premiere of complete Jerry Goldsmith score for Frank Marshall film from Micheal Chrichton thriller with Laura Linney, Dylan Walsh. Original album produced by Goldsmith only featured about 23 minutes of score plus ten minutes of admittedly dynamic African choral material. But that left out virtually half of magnificent score. Goldsmith's approach to thriller offers some of his most riveting action music of the nineties. Intrada presentation includes everything composer recorded, including two versions of rich "Deep Jungle," in which version recorded specifically for album deleted tense snake sequence. Standing out in new tracks are thrilling action cues: powerful Rambo style "Meet Monroe Kelly" airport escape cue, intense "Help Me" where Tim Curry meets his violent end. Other new cues include two versions of mysterious "The Ghost Tribe," "Meet Amy" sequence with alternating thrills, tenderness. Alternates plus "Villagers Chant" written by James Newton Howard & Lebo M complete 62-minute program. Entire score mastered from original digital two-track session masters, vaulted at Paramount, stunningly recorded, mixed by Bruce Botnick. Packaging features both original Epic Soundtrax label album cover plus exciting "flipper" cover. Jerry Goldsmith conducts. Intrada Special Collection release available while quantities and interest remains!

Altoist Donald Harrison's disc utilizes New Orleans parade rhythms on all of the selections, even while most of the solos (until the final three numbers) are more hard bop than New Orleans jazz. John O'Neal verbally pays tribute to the rhythms on the opening "And How That Rhythm." The other selections include an augmented bop blues ("Two Way Pocky Way"), the tricky "Don't Drink the Water," Thelonious Monk's "Bye-Ya," a pair of Freddie Hubbard tunes well worth reviving ("Crisis" and "Bob's Place"), Sonny Rollins' "Oleo," and the catchy "Spirits of Congo Square."

Jerry Goldsmith has always scored well with ethnic settings and a chance to play to the grand vista's of the African wilderness was an opportunity not to be missed. Congo, the movie, was an attempt to cash in on Crichton mania after the massive success of Jurassic Park. But Congo, the book was not a major success and a movie version had been talked about before back in the early eighties under the direction of Crichton himself and with Goldsmith scoring. This was aborted and some would say Congo still hadn't improved enough to warrant a major summer movie event in 1995. Congo wasn't that well received by critics but it didn't stop it from going on to make some good international box office though. Goldsmith begins with a celebratory opening for the plains of Africa introducing an enthusiastic African vocal from group Lebo M. Goldsmith has always done well with instrumental support to vocal arrangements and this is no exception.

In the clarity and elegance of its nine tracks, the music of Rodrigo Tavares in Congo seems to inhabit a very peculiar time and space, where the constructive rigour of the compositions, based on the contraction and expansion of some minimal elements, isn’t in any way incompatible with the air of perky lightness that the performance suggests.

Wonderful afro-latin music from putumayo. The rhythms originated in West Africa, originally traveled to Cuba on the slave ships and since then the music has gone back and forth across the Atlantic countless times, changing slightly on each occasion. This well-composed compilation shows how much Africa and Cuba have in common. Enjoy.

Sabu Martinez's debut as a leader mostly features percussionists (other than bassist Evaristo Baro), including the leader, Arsenio Rodriguez (who doubles on the tres), Cesar Travieso, Quique Travieso, and Ray "Mosquito" Romero. Martinez, Rodriguez, and Travieso also join Willie Capo and Sarah Baro in singing and chanting. Six of the eight songs are Martinez's originals, although the most memorable cut is the opening "El Cumbanchero," which has a catchy melody and a Martinez vocal that in tone sounds surprisingly like Cab Calloway in spots. Intriguing African-oriented music. ~ AllMusic
