More than any other popular composer, Henry Mancini’s cool, sophisto-jazz defined the tenor of early 60s TV & film soundtracks. From his darker forays (“Experiment In Terror”) to his indelibly catchy compositions (“The Pink Panther”), your dad (or grand dad) probably spent many an hour mixing cocktails to the sweater-hip, hi-fi sounds of “Mr. Lucky,” “Peter Gunn” or “The Days of Wine And Roses.” Oranj Symphonette takes liberties with Mancini’s basic outlines, but not so much as to bury the lede. Kicking off with a Munsters via John Zorn rendition of “A Shot In The Dark,” the arrangements here are largely sax and guitar driven, with punchy, up-front drums pumping the volume. While Plays Mancini isn’t as divisive (or inventive) as Hal Willner’s Nino Rota trib or Zorn’s essential Ennio Morricone treatment, there’s plenty to enjoy in the Symphonette’s gerrymandering of the smoothest of 50s/60s soundtrack kings.
