Continuing our World Cinema tour. Tonight it's the 1962 film by Eriprando Visconti (nephew of Luchino), Una Storia Milanese (A Milanese Story) featuring the music of John Lewis (Modern Jazz Quartet). Jazz and Foreign film almost seemed synonymous in the 1950s and 60s. So much so, that many American Jazz figures were sought after by overseas producers and directors to score their films. Some of the great French and Italian films of the New Wave featured scores by Miles Davis, Art Blakey, Chet Baker and John Lewis. It was a win-win situation for a lot of American musicians. Creative freedom, good working conditions, decent pay, a soundtrack and a soundtrack album.

Tonight's track is titled In A Crowd and it opens the film. And in typical John Lewis fashion its soulful, breezy and nicely orchestrated. His trademark.
