Cincinatti Kid CD – ALEPH 025

$14.98

“It’s difficult to listen to a score like The Cincinnati Kid without sensing the vast musical vocabulary that Lalo Schifrin is capable of. These themes blend disparate and varying elements into a seamless, unifying whole: a story that can be told purely in terms of music. When Lalo Schifrin tells the story, it’s worth hearing. Heard anew, the story takes on the status of legend.”

– Douglas Payne, from the liner notes
