Academy Award winner in 1986 for
Best Film Music
When Herbie Hancock won the Oscar for best original film music for Round Midnight, it became one of the most controversial victories in Oscar history. But if you look at the list of musicians featured on this soundtrack, you can only guess why this film music and not Ennio Morricone's was chosen.
Dexter Gordon, who played an alcoholic jazz musician in New York and Paris in the film, can be heard in almost every song, but he is not the only star of the jazz pantheon to grace these sessions with his presence. Ron Carter, Bobby McFerrin, Tony Williams, Wayne Shorter, Freddie Hubbard, Chet Baker - these are just a few of the songs that rival Billie Holiday's famous Fine And Mellow session for CBS. Available in a limited edition of 1,000 individually numbered copies on Translucent Blue Vinyl.
