Round Midnight: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack on Numbered Limited Edition K2 HD Mastering CD

K2 HD 100kHz / 24-bit Mastering

Limited Edition of Only 1000 Numbered Copies

The Grammy award winning soundtrack for Bertrand Tavernier's 1986 film Round Midnight features a laundry list of jazz luminaries including Dexter Gordon (piano) who also stars in the titular role well as John McLaughlin (guitar), Ron Carter (bass), Bobby McFerrin (vocals), Tony Williams (drums), Wayne Shorter (saxophone), Freddie Hubbard (trumpet), Chet Baker (vocals/trumpet), Cedar Walton (piano) and Lonette McKee (vocals), most of whom also appear in supporting roles. 

"As the lead character, Gordon interprets 'Body and Soul' and a few other pieces that provide appropriate impressions for the story. His acting and playing go hand in hand. Gordon's tenor places Lester Young in the ear and mind's eye of the audience. Billy Higgins and Herbie Hancock anchor a session high in quality and filled with emotion. When the script calls for something eerie, they provide it. 

"By inverting the harmonic structure of Bud Powell's 'Time Waits,' Hancock creates 'Still Time,' which moves soothingly along a fairy-tale path. Daydreams and nightmares come and go, while an all-star jazz cast provides the charm. A twin-tenor battle with Wayne Shorter, a hard bop quintet romp with Freddie Hubbard, and several classic ballads form a memorable soundtrack. As well as paying homage to pioneers Powell and Young, the film's music serves as a tribute to many other bebop, hard bop, and post-bop innovators." - Jim Santella, All About Jazz
