The Music From Peter Gunn - Henry Mancini (arr, cond); Ted Nash, Ronnie Lang (as); Dick Nash, Milt Bernhart (tb); Pete Candoli (tp); Johnny T. Williams (p); Larry Bunker (vib); Rolly Bundock (b); Jack Sperling (dr)

This is not only a great LP but a key piece of jazz and pop music history. Back in 1958, Peter Gunn was one of the unexpected hits of the new television season, capturing the imagination of millions of viewers by mixing private eye action with a jazz setting. Composer Henry Mancini was more than fluent in jazz, and his music nailed down the popularity of the series. With the main title theme, a driving, ominous, exciting piece of music to lead off the album, The Music from Peter Gunn became a huge hit, charting extraordinarily high for a television soundtrack and doing so well that RCA Victor came back the next year asking for a second helping (More Music From Peter Gunn) from Mancini.
The music holds up: Session At Pete’s Pad is a superb workout for the trumpets of Pete Candoli, Uan Rasey, Conrad Gozzo, and Frank Beach, while Barney Kessel’s electric guitar gets the spotlight during Dreamsville; and Sorta Blue and Fallout are full-ensemble pieces that constitute quintessential 'cool' West Coast jazz of the period. In other words, it’s all virtuoso orchestral jazz, presented in its optimum form.

Recording: August and September 1958 in Hollywood, CA.
Production: Simon Rady
