Pete Rugolo Behind Brigitte Bardot 45rpm Import LP
West Coast Jazz Interpretations of Bardot's Biggest Film Themes on 45rpm Vinyl!
Equal parts concept record and mash note, Behind Brigitte Bardot celebrates the
legendary French sex kitten via West Coast jazz interpretations of her biggest
film themes. The precise raison d'κtre behind the album is a mystery, but it's
nevertheless a charmer, boasting some of Pete Rugolo's lushest and loveliest
Teamed with an all-star cast including altoist Bud Shank and trumpeters Jack
Sheldon and Pete Candoli, Rugolo adapts themes like "Arsenic Blues," "Mambo
Bardot" and "The Night Heaven Fell" from their original cinematic context into
wry, cool-toned jazz melodies heavy on innuendo and late-night appeal. Whatever
the notion behind the session, the execution's delightful.
