After a season of committing high-risk, high-absurdity murders that contributed to a heart-wrenching conclusion, season five of Dexter finds the lawful evil antihero trying to pick up the pieces of his broken life while continuing to struggle with his inner demons. The soundtrack offers plenty of stylish, sun-soaked Latin and salsa music, from classic artists like Beny More to contemporary acts like the electro and hip hop-tinged Bomba Estereo. Selections from Daniel Licht’s atmospheric score round out the collection, capturing all of the drama and eeriness viewers have come to expect from the cable series.

The Chorus is the original soundtrack of the 2004 Academy Award and Golden Globe-nominated film The Chorus (original title: Les choristes) starring Gérard Jugnot, François Berléand, Kad Merad and Jean-Baptiste Maunier.

The album won the César Award for Best Music Written for a Film and was nominated for the BAFTA Award for Best Film Music (but lost to the score of Los Diarios de Motocicleta). The song "Look To Your Path" (original title: "Vois Sur Ton Chemin") was nominated for an Academy Award.
Harry Connick, Jr.'s vocals perfectly fit the moods throughout the 1989 Billy Crystal film When Harry Met Sally. This soundtrack album (which stands apart from the movie) was a big hit and a major step forward for the young pianist-vocalist, although it appears to have been the high point of his career. Connick warmly sings such numbers as "It Had to Be You," "Our Love Is Here to Stay," "But Not for Me," and "Let's Call the Whole Thing Off," while usually accompanied by bassist Benjamin Wolfe, drummer Jeff "Tain" Watts, and a big band. Frank Wess' warm tenor makes a brief appearance on "Our Love Is Here to Stay." In addition, there are a few melodic instrumentals, including some solo Connick piano on "Winter Wonderland" and "Autumn in New York." Highly recommended.
